convienient and good price

The staff was very helpful and polite. The rooms were clean and updated. It is not an elegant place, but it is a place to sleep. The continental breakfast was sufficient. The dinner next store had great quality food.

It's ok.

Good location. Rooms are old. It's a little expensive for the type of rooms, but I guess it's expensive because of its location.

Handy

Close to UT. Easy access to airport. Clean. Helpful staff. No atmosphere. Can serve as a clean, inexpensive, handy, non-descrript place to stay for the night.

great location

The air conditioning was great-it is very hot in Austin but the room was always cool/comfortable. Others have said it was too noisy but we were never bothered.

Close to University

My daughter and I traveled to Austin to visit the University of Austin. We wanted a hotel that was near the University and this one was about 3 miles away. The hotel is clean, the beds were comfortable, the staff was friendly. The pool is very small and the television reception was poor but there was free internet. There were no restaurants nearby. Overall I would recommend this hotel for a short stay.

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.
