Austin BW June 2013

Check in staff did not listen, I said I had a prepaid and he just went looking for a room, rather than look for the prepaid. The fans in the elevators were not on. It is hot in TX in the summer. All that is needed is to turn the key in the control panel. The man at the desk said there was no manual way to turn the fan on. I told him that it was easy, find a key and turn the switch, he just ignored me.

Nice Surprise

Beautiful hotel, very clean and friendly. The free breakfast was a full meal - eggs cooked to order etc. Easy to get to. Nice pool for the grandkids. Will definately stay there again.

Romantic Escape

I was very pleased with this hotel in every aspect. I spent several hours online trying to find a room with exactly what I was looking for( jacuzzi or hot tub-in the room) when I came across the Best Western atrium north, it had everything I wanted. I booked the room, and upon arrival the staff was very polite, I was impressed before I even made it to the room. Once we got into the room not one but 2 very happy campers we were. We will be returning on a regular basis. Thank you very much Best Western!!!

Family visit for the weekend

The hotel pictures were better than the actual hotel. The staff was nice and the breakfast is great they actually have a cook! The indoor pool is really small so when they had other guest swimming we couldn't swim without feeling like they were too close.For the price it's a good deal.

Expected more....

First of all, the biggest problem I had with the hotel was the cleanliness of the room. It smelled like a hospital, and feet. The "whirlpool" in my room was DISGUSTING! I had to get down and clean it myself. The cook was great(breakfast cookl). But the "room service" was terrible. I had an awful slice of teramisu, tasted like it had been sitting in a ridge for days. Sauna was smelly, pool was cute. Location was not amazing...we were only about 10 mins from downtown...but the community surrounding was quite scary.

Easy drive to downtown

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights when visiting Austin. It was an easy drive to downtown. It had a nice, heated indoor pool, and for an extra few dollars a night we got a whirlpool tub. Many options for the free breakfast. Great value.

Clean and Comfortable

We had a couple days to spend in Austin and didn't want to spend a lot of money on a hotel downtown. This one worked out fine as it was only 6 miles north of the downtown activities. Nice and clean with a really great breakfast!

Learned a lot about Texas history at the Bob Bullock Museum downtown. Worth the short drive south on I35

not what I expected

According to other reviews I thought this would be an okay place to stay. However, the location after dark was a bit sketchy and the continental breakfast was nothing to rave about. We were in town for a triathlon race and the night before our event there was a group of drunk people standing outside our room on two different occasions for about 20 min. each. (1:00am and 3:00am). Then, the sirens throughout the night (every night) made for difficult sleeping. After the first night i wanted to pack up, but due to our non-refundable reservation we sucked it up. I would not recommend this place for the amount we paid. Very disappointing, the pictures on the website are not accurate.
