After an unpleasant night at a La Quinta and a very!! unclean room, I went onto hotwire.com to book a room (last minute) for the other 3 nights I was planning on being in Austin. After hotwire gave me the Holiday Inn-...

Close to Rainey st bars. Great location for walking around lake or renting a kayak out back. Our room was small, but cheaper compared to downtown. It Watson the water side, so no noise issues. Good value and front staff was very friendly. Free shuttle too.

Thanks you for taking the time to relay your experience at our hotel. When the founder of Holiday Inns saw our location, he too thought it would be a great place for a hotel and that was before the area developed into a prime entertainment district. We’re proud to offer Austin visitors great value and hope to see you again...

I really enjoyed my stay here and will never forget how great the AC rooms were in the hot, Austin summer. I enjoyed how close the hotel was to the lake and that there was a kayaking/canoe rental right behind the hotel. It was family run and they allowed me to keep my purse with them while I kayaked, in...

Thanks for the review, short and sweet. Many of our guests love our location and take advantage of Lady Bird Lake and easy access to downtown. Yes, I guess it’s technically a lake on a river with dams on both ends and the wild Colorado below all the way to the gulf. Come back and enjoy our hotel again soon.

I stayed at this hotel for business recently. The hotel looks worn and dated, and is located in a less than desirable neighborhood. Upon check in, the staff was polite and accommodating. I asked for a "quiet" room, and the desk employee stated my room was a "designated quiet room". I was glad for that until I actually got to...

Thanks for your comments and compliments on out staff. It sounds like the noise from I 35 disturbed your rest. To help alleviate this in the future we’re planning to install thicker blackout curtains to go with the double paned glass that are currently on the building.

We always stay at the Holiday Inn Austin Town Lake when in Austin. We prefer the South Tower with the lake view. Great option if you're a club member. Great location for outdoor activities and walking to Rainy street. The front desk personnel are always accommodating.

Thanks for the great review. Yes our location does put you close to many features that our guests love. You may have noticed the addition of sailboat, bike and kayak rentals near the hotel.
