Hotel was fairly clean, beds were average, some of hotel shabby. Has breakfast but room is very small where it is served. Front desk people are helpful and friendly. Location is right off IH 35 a few miles South of downtown.

Overall, I had a good stay at this hotel. I had no major problems. The biggest problems were that the shower pressure was a bit low and the TV signal cut out a few times – that's all. I feel silly even mentioning those small things. My expectations weren't that high given the location, but my expectations were met on... More

Granted this is a second tier in the Choice hotel line so my expectations weren't high. However, the floor in the bathroom had a large crack, the shower faucet got so hot it burned your hand when you turned it off after your shower, the couch was badly stained, and fitness center had nothing to wipe the equipment off with...

My first impression of this hotel was that it was decent. Nothing special, a little shabby, but overall clean. However, then we walked into our room (309) and almost gagged. It smelled absolutely horrible - overwhelmingly like damp/mildew. Our noses adjusted to it after being in the room for a few minutes, but every time we left the room and... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am sorry to hear about the smell issue, and I have passed this information onto my maintenance department. I hope we may have another chance in the future to make things right. More

Really, really nice desk clerk got us checked in in a few seconds. We had stayed there three or four years ago and the rooms are nice, but public areas a bit worn--cracks in tile in elevator, wallpaper torn elsewhere. However, very clean. Room was nice, with LARGE tv. Great A/C. Pool on small side, but we didn't need it.... More

We booked online and check-in/check-out was fast and easy. The double queen size beds were comfortable and the room was oversized and had a mini-fridge, microwave, desk and couch. The A/C was super cold which was nice and we were able to sleep very well. The hotel itself was clean overall. The pool area is indoors and the whirlpool has... More

Nice clean spacious rooms with easy access to downtown or other Austin destinations. Not a luxury hotel, but great for the price. The breakfast bar is your typical Quality Inn fare with an occasional Texas taste,

Sorry gang, but you need to take the word "quality" out of the title of this place and replace it with "dank." The place has seen better days, with an unappealing walk to the room, and in the room chipped and dirty paint, poorly slopped caulking in the bathroom. But the worst for us was the stains on our bed... More

The hotel is older and conveniently located south of Austin. The staff was very friendly and we had great customer service. The room was nice and clean, I thought the bed was very comfortable. Although I thought it was a little overpriced, we would stay here again.

We stayed here for one night after a family member's graduation. Hotel was clean, but definitely needs refreshing. Our room had a questionable brown chunky smear quite high on a wall, sheets barely covered the mattress- only came down over the corners about 2 inches. Bathtub beat up, stained and chipped. Fold out sofa was trashed. Free parking and Wi-Fi.... More
