Super 8 Waco Mall
Travel Blogs from Waco
Our Hill Country weekend began Thursday night at the Baylor / Oklahoma football game at Floyd Casey Stadium in Waco. Our Bears broke open a close game late in the first half and ran away with a convincing 41-12 win over the Sooners in front of a sold out crowd and nationally televised audience.
Our fellow travelers for the weekend, Barry …
... he can't lift and carry as much. The rental car bus was a highlight, as always. Got a minivan and headed toward Waco. As we waited for the rental car check-in process, a man in line commented how well-behaved the girls were. Once settled in the minivan, we set the navigator to Waco and started driving. We made good time and enjoyed seeing all the southern businesses I remember, like Waffle House and Whataburger and ...
... gathered for some chatter and beer.... Then we had a guest... An unwelcome guest in my opinion !! A tarantula!!! Now me being **** scared of spiders made for an interesting show as I barged past the other and climbed on the nearest bench! After an incident with the wind and the gazebo which had the whole group holding it down before deciding to put it away, we finally wolfed down some dinner and pretty much straight away headed to bed to settle in for a windy ...
... the Rock Tower, we found a few more scenic sites, including a cave where a bird was patiently guarding her nest. Less patient, however, was an as of yet unidentified animal, who made a terrible noise when I stepped too close to wherever it was. Much discussion has ensued over the past few weeks as to sort of animal could emit such a sound, but perhaps we'll never know.
Hopefully we'll be able to get a few more out-of-town excursions documented before the long haul next ...
... the microphone. We were pretty sure a sound of a camera click was quieter than her extremely projected voice. After a while, she realised the bats were starting to fly out of the entrance so, thank god, shut up and stood to the side. It really was a magnificent sight.

We've stayed here numerous times over he past several years while in town for Baylor football games. Staff has always been helpful and courteous. Older motel but clean and well maintained. Grandkids like refrigerator and microwave and waffles in the breakfast buffet. Although football team moves to new stadium several miles further away in 08/14 we will still probably still stay here. Lots of chain restaurants nearby and mall.
