UT game handy

The location is ideal for leaving your car and jumping in a 7$ UBER to tailgate outside the stadium for UT games. It was a 12$ ride back from 6th street. The room itself was fine.

The room was fine, specially if you are looking for a cheap hotel just to spend the night. Breakfast is good enough.

Days Inn

We decided to head up to Austin to hit 6th street. It just so happened to be South by Southwest weekend. The hotel price was extremely inflated for the weekend which was understandable. The location was great since it was walking distance to UT and a taxi cab ride of about 12.00 to 6th street. However, the hotel is literally right next to IH 35 so you can hear the traffic while sleeping. The amenities were very simple and little old. The room kind of shaked while you walked in certain places of the room for one season. Needless to say the price of the hotel was certainly not a 200.00 stay but it was lower then other hotels. I wouldn't stay there again if other hotels were available.

Great Location

The location was perfect for game day. In walking distance to stadium. Cheap cap ride to 6th st, you can walk but it is a long walk. Rooms were updated, but the there was a hot water issue. But overall great for what we needed it for.

In town for wedding

Our room was not bad. it looked much better inside that i would have thought. Our room was back far enough that the noise from the highway did not bother us at all. The staff was really nice and respectful. the only bad thing was the parking. since it is an oddly shaped hotel parking was weird and difficult at times, but nothing i could not handle.
