Free breakfast is excellent. My first stay was good. My second stay has been excellent. The staff is awesome. I asked for any room above first floor, as hotel is located next to a Circle K with lots of people traffic. I got what I asked for with no problem. I travel to Austin almost on a weekly basis with...

Wonderful receptionist, Josie who went above and beyond while checking me in. Small but adequate breakfast room with standard waffle machine, scrambled eggs and cold products. This hotel is slightly dated, but the lobby, hallways and rooms are clean and well maintained. My room was very large and had two desks, a sofa, mini fridge and microwave. Although my room... More

At check in asked for a top floor room facing away from the highway. Was told it's not possible , then on examination they could perhaps manage to meet my request, if they could charge me a higher rate! So little interest and making a quick buck was the first impression. Didn't try at all to help us further. The... More

I stayed two nights at this hotel during SXSW. They charged me a overpriced rate for the stay. I could understand it if the quality of hotel could allow that extremely high price. But the hotel is really in a bad condition. It is worn out and the room is dirty with filthy floors, bed covers with stains, bathroom not... More

A way from the airport ($20 cab ride) and in a more industrial area... only options for eating are a small thai restaurant (see my review) and a restaurant in the Springhill Hotel nearby. Tbere is a circle K behind the hotel. Basic room, not... More

Decently maintained location and great access to downtown Austin without much traffic. Decent price for an Austin motel. Breakfast both mornings was good. The only negative is navigating Austin streets to get to the motel. Getting out is easy and a big positive for me. This is the second time I've stayed here and plan to return on my next... More
