Best bang for our buck-- just what we needed.

My friend and I were coming in from out of town to attend and event at the Hilton by the Austin Convention Center. We didn't want to spend exorbitant amounts of money on the hotel, so we sought out a hotel near downtown..that wasn't sketchy and unclean. The location of this hotel is fairly convenient. There is a shopping center (with Target, Walgreens, Ross, and other stores) on the other side of I-35, and the hotel was 10 minutes from where I needed to be. The beds were nothing special, but the room and bathroom were clean. The breakfast was from 7-10am, and it was a fairly standard hotel breakfast-featuring yogurt, bagels, oatmeal, fruit, etc. The staff was very friendly, and made an effort to make a bit of small talk, even when we were wearing strange wigs. It was certainly not the best hotel I've ever stayed in, but it was far from the worst. THINGS TO NOTE: Our room did not have a refrigerator, so leftovers couldn't be stored, which was a little sad. The rooms face outside, so if you are the kind of person who doesn't like a slight bit of noise when you sleep, you may want to ask for a room that doesn't face the freeway if they have it. Also, the parking lot is dim towards the back part of the complex. Not necessarily sketchy, but there's just not a whole lot of light.

La Quinta Inn at Austin UT University area

The hotel is very well situated by the interstate with good access to the University. The amenities and bath room fixtures need to be rehabbed. I was there for a day and extended the stay by another day, but got charged a different but higher amount. I think the business practices of the hotel and industry need to be upgraded. Could become a very nice motel with proper management and better attention to travellers.

Decent place to sleep for cheap

My husband, I and our 2 dogs needed an inexpensive place to stay while our new apartment was turned over. This place was sufficient. It was inexpensive, the room was clean, and the staff helpful. The outside is pretty beat up and there is only one overpriced restaurant within walking distance. However, it is a quick drive to food, campus, and downtown. I recommend this place as a good economy stay, but not for vacation.

Great location. Room is clean and great value. The parking area could be improved. Simple breakfast and yet good enough.

You get what you pay for

We got this hotel for a great price. La Quintas are pet-friendly, which is why we chose it. It's not a very nice area of town, but we didn't feel unsafe. Room was minimally clean -- sheets and towels were good, but try not to look at the floors or behind anything.

Last Minute Arrangements onn a Sold out weekend

Austin was packed. There was a Marathon in town, a major tournament at UT, and it was the perfect weekend to get away from Houston. My original plans for lodging had fallen through at the last minute and I was scrambling for options. Thankfully, They still had a room at the La Quinta at Highland Mall. I was slightly disappointed in the overall quality as there were stains on the floor and the comforter in the room when I arrived. The comforters were changed by night 2, but stains on the carpet are hard to fix in 1 day. The staff was excellent though. Its a 10 minute drive or taxi ride to 6th street, so the location was acceptable also. Overall, for a last minute find, it was great! The hotel needs some maintenance upkeep work done though. A little fresh paint and ensuring that the baseboards are all painted and in place would go a long way towards making this a better value hotel.

Good Choice

Not the newest of places, but a good choice for the location and price. Beds are comfortable and rooms are alright they have nice flat screen TVs. Recommend for the average one or two day stay.
