For the price, you couldn't get a better hotel/location. Hotel was within 3 miles from 6th street. See full review

Affordable place to stay

Good bang for your buck at a great location (close to UT campus). Rooms are clean, bed is comfy but there seems to be only soap (no shampoo) provided. Friendly staff, and cheap.

Good Location

The motel is in a central location to the University. But not many amenities. I think it's the first place I've ever stayed that didn't at least have bathroom toiletries (i.e. shampoo, conditioner, lotion). There was soap. That was it. I even asked front desk. Just know before you go.

Location was tricky to get to but pool clean. Pretty close to downtown. Not bad for the price difference compared to other places in the area

Your Basic Motel 6 with clean, simple and affordable rooms, not too far from but on a noisy highway.

This is a Motel 6 - so you know what you can expect: Simple and clean, and a little cheaper than most other places. But this is Austin - where rooms can be hard to find - so the price was higher than you'll find in other cities. The room was spacious and clean, with TV and wi-fi; soap but no shampoo (available in vending machines). It is literally located on I-35 - so if you have a car it is convenient (though the rumble of traffic in constant). There is also the #10 bus a ten minute walk away that will get you downtown.

You get what you pay for. Spend a little extra and stay somewhere else. It doesn't help when the room down from you has a broken window.

Motel 6

The room smelled like cigarettes and the towels were very small. Had I had other options I would have checked out and stayed somewhere else.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

There is a movie theatre not far from there that has stadium seating and is less crowded than most movie theatres.
