great UT hotel

I stayed here a few years back for a conference at UT. Compared to the previous experience: New, upgraded rooms. The hotel still looks like a total dump from the outside, but has nice rooms. Still very inexpensive. Still a great location for UT access. The hotel is on the I35 access road, so bring a white noise generator or something to drown out the auto noise. The hotel continental breakfast is lousy. The coffee is fine. There is a great, funky diner on the property, Star Seeds. I recommend this for real breakfast. For dinner, try Vivo texmex/margaritas only 3 blocks away.

Good value

This hotel was a good choice for what we wanted. Basically a place to sleep. It was close the interstate and downtown. We didn't use any amenities, other than the breakfast area, so cannot comment on those.

AMAZING STAY!

This hotel was conveniently located close to my apartment near UT's campus, so it was perfect for my parents. The staff was very sweet, the breakfast was delicious (and free!) and best of all, the mattress had a cover! Sounds strange, but I had the unfortunate experience of getting bed bugs in a foreign country, so I always check the mattress before unpacking anything. I will definitely set them up again here!

Take a Segway Nation tour! They were fun, informative, and the best way to see the city without hiking all about town.
