All throughout the Waco area are great hotels and motels that can provide outstanding service for tourists dropping by for a visit or locals itching to go on a “staycation.” The following places are highly recommended by The Camille Johnson Group.

Located in Austin Avenue, Waco, The Cotton Palace offers guests a comfortable bed and breakfast experience complete with the Southwestern charm Texas is known for.
