It was obvious at first glance, the bed sheets were dirty, unhygienic, and not changed from previous occupants. It was really disgusting to find hair follicles and other human matter on the bed sheets. Reported to the concierge who responded with "Come to the desk and get new sheets." Ha. So be prepared to make your own bed, too!

Although staying here requires you to have a car, it wasn't too onerous to drive into downtown (I preferred to stay on side roads and it tock about 15 min). The room was kind of like a time-share - but not fancy. They put us in 1201 - which is upstairs at the very end - I didn't mind the...

This hotel is really comfortable and cozy. Although it was little bit old; however, everything was clean and it was overall a pleasant stay. The breakfast was delicious and healthy and they have food cooked to order. The only thing that was slightly disappointing was that water was cold at 6am in the morning so I couldn't take a shower.

We enjoyed our stay here overall, and everyone was really nice... but this wasn't the most comfortable stay we have had and we felt like it didn't meet our expectations from the reviews we previously read on here. Our was very clean, but the fixtures overall weren't as nice as I was expecting from online pocketed. We enjoyed the space,...

THIS HOTEL HAS BED BUGS!!!!! DO NOT STAY HERE!!!! This hotel is absolutely crawling with bed bugs, cockroaches and spiders. We checked in about 7pm after a long day of travel, went to get into bed at about 10:30 only to find both the upstairs and downstairs crawling with bedbugs when the sheets were pulled away. After visiting the front...

First of all don't listen to the complaining. This hotel was our 4th hotel in 8 days as we are touring Texas. It may be slightly dated but that's ok, it gives it a little charm. The suites are big with full kitchen, living room and the bedroom is also spacious. Cannot find one complaint with this hotel. Very friendly...

Stayed at the Habitat Suites on a first time visit to Austin for a wedding. I think that this place is the best value of any hotels we have ever stayed. So much to say about the Habitat Suites that I don't know where to begin. 1. Location: Right off of I35 about 6 miles from the city center. Depending...

Found this searching for reasonable space to stay for an Austin wedding. Wife thought she would need space to do wedding flowers. Kept it when we discovered we did not. Repurposed apartments into suites. Decent meat free breakfast and evening snacks. Happy hour through the week. Plenty of space for a hotel. Would have been tight for apartments. While not...
