Nothing to brag about

Would not recommend Tue, Jul 28, 2015
I waited too long to book a room and ended up staying here for one night. If you just need a bed to sleep in and a bathroom to get ready this place will suffice. The decor is outdated but it did have a flat screen TV. Maybe they will remodel soon and update their look both inside and out.

Trip to University of Texas

Would recommend Sat, Jul 18, 2015
. The room was clean and well maintained. It was near the University of Texas. I could walk to to the main campus in about 15-20 minutes. The hotel is right next to/below I35, I could look out the window of my second floor room and see the underside of I35. The air conditioning was a wall unit that stayed on the entire time I was there and I did not hear the cars on I35. The front desk and staff were friendly and very helpful. For the cost it was an excellent choice.

Nice hotel

Would recommend Sat, Jun 13, 2015
My wife and I came for our daughter's graduation at the University of Austin. The hotel's location could hardly be any better (about 1.2 miles from the UT campus). While it is not a luxury hotel, it served the purpose of our visit just fine. The room was clean, with a fridge, microwave, and in-room coffeemaker. Also, complimentary continental breakfast is a nice addition to the value.

Days Inn Austin

Would not recommend Thu, Mar 26, 2015
The listing indicated that the hotel was 'downtown.' It is not. It is 2 miles from downtown. I paid $300 for this basic motel thinking it was downtown. I wanted something close. I could have save $150 by going another mile or two and end up with the same inconvenience.

I was surprised the outside looked rundown. The beds were totally comfortable. It had extras that made you overlook the negatives like the outside noise due to the location. It was right off a Major Interstate. There continental breakfast was good.

As Expected

Would recommend Mon, Dec 29, 2014
Can't beat the location, a short walk to UT. The air conditioner was a window unit and made a lot of noise. The mattress should have been replaced years ago. But there are not too many options for this price in the neighborhood.
