Frankly, when in Waco I like to stay at the Hilton. That probably says something about me, but it's not that I'm a snob or need extreme luxuries; Waco is just dodgy when it comes to hotels, and I know the Hilton will be clean, comfortable and polite.
This La Quinta has seen better days, but given the limited options it's a good value and a great location. My recent stay (Feb '12) reminded me of a problem that I had experienced here before: extreme variations in pressure and temperature of the water. Your shower can turn scalding or freezing without warning. While this might be only an annoyance for someone mobile, I was placed in a ADA-fixtured room and I thought about the poor soul who might not be able to dodge the temperature changes so easily. Added to that, the very limited "free" breakfast (don't know the hours, but by the time I got there both mornings there was only coffee available), noisy environment (I-35 and all-night Denny's) and amateurish staff, I'll splurge on the Hilton from now on. The room was nice, with free wi-fi and decent linens and pillows, but I can get all that elsewhere without the liability of being scalded.
