Alright for the price

Room was pretty clean, but the hotel is right next to the freeway and it gets pretty loud. It's kind of in a sketchy area, didn't feel safe all the time. The staff was decently accommodating.

Worst hotel experience I've ever had.

I recently stayed here while attending Austin City Limits. I was more concerned about location at the time and now wish I wouldve spent the extra money to stay somewhere better. Upon checking into the room it seemed clean but very cheap. The floors had no carpet, only a cheap linoleum wood. Theres not really much that comes with the room. No coffee maker, no iron, no shampoo, and the wifi cost to use. The beds were uncomfortable. The shower barely had pressure behind it and went cold halfway through. The bathroom was small and awkward. But all of that isnt even the worse part. Through out the days of staying there I started noticing bite marks showing up everywhere and now realize that I stayed in a room infested with bed bugs. So now not only am I upset about the stay, I have to worry about bringing them home and possibly infesting my house. This was by far the worst hotel experience I've ever had.

great for our purposes

We were going to the SXSW festival in Austin. We basically needed a place to sleep and shower. The room size was VERY small, but it had all we needed. The people outside and walking around were creepy in a skezy kind of way.

Would rebook

The pillows were great! The room apparently was a smoking room but we had no time to change rooms so we stayed. I had to do a breathing treatment due to my allergies being affected by the cigarette smoke smell in the room. Again, our fault for not changing rooms. Other than that, good place.

Got a stinky smoking room first night

I reserved a non-smoking room for my two night stay and got a smoking room that had a terrible strong cigar smell because they had run out of rooms. The top sheet on bed had stains on it and found a long hair in pillow case. Plus I got charged about 20 dollarsmore than my reserve deal. I am terrible dissapointed. The prictures shown on the website show a clean motel but cleaning level needs great improvement.

Bad Experience

The room was below average with no alarm clock, coffee maker, no breakfast availabe,or hair dryer. No internet available to do my work and you had to pay 2.99 a day to get connected. I paid and after talking to their internet people for two hours....it was discovered someone had stolen the device from one of the rooms. Poorly constructed building and with traffic noise heard from the freeway all night long. The activities in the parking lot included ladies of the evening, drinking, and people yelling at all hours of early morning.
