First trip to Austin Texas

The hotel was very easy to find. The staff were friendly and helpful. Loved the continental breakfast every morning. One of the cleanest hotels I have stayed in. During a bad thunderstorm, my ceiling leaked over the bed. They were very nice, got me a new room, and the man at the desk came and moved all my luggage for me to the other room. Plus it was a nicer room than I had booked!!! That is good customer service : ) Will go back again.

Good place to stay near Austin

Good: staff was wonderful; great location. Very quiet even though it was close to the freeway. Bad: They ran out of breakfast basics, like milk. Lots of other stuff to eat. Internet was slow in the room, but fast in the lobby; other rooms are probably fine. Room had been beat up by previous tenants; too bad as this was once a really nice place. I would stay here again for this price!

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

Before you 'move in' look over rooms, and try your computer. Many motels have slow internet in rooms, and most have really fast internet close to the wifi antenna. We enjoyed the History Museum downtown.

Served Its Purpose

This is a slightly overpriced hotel. It met my needs in providing a room on an otherwise sold-out weekend in Austin. However the room was rundown and the water pressure and temperature was at besy adequate for showering and shaving. The location was OK, but hard to get to.
