Close to UT Austin, but not much else

Low on toilet paper, low on toiletries, trash was left in room before we arrived. Beds are not very comfortable. One of the bedside lamps was not working.

Dont do it!

It was horrible!!.. bathroom and sheets were disgusting. tub had some type of stains that way had been blood.i just waited to drive home to shower. i even got charged a extra 20$ cuz the other person staying with went in their own car. Overall i paid 90$ for a hotel that needs to be destroyed. I guess for a night your only going to sleep and leave i guess it may be worth it. but i still don't recommend it.

Actually cozy.

I just stayed here this passed weekend, and I was hesitant on booking it, seeing it's a 1 star and I work at a 5 diamond. It was my first time in Austin and I came on the busiest weekend, so this was my last option. The outside looks junky as does the inside and I was worried about bed bugs, but they do NOT have them and it was actually pretty cute once I got used to it. Only two problems were most lights didn't work and The pool was filthy. But the management and employees are AMAZING!!!!!!! I absolutely loved loved LOVED them! They are very friendly and will meet any means you want. I had to wait for a cab for four hours (crazy) but the management didn't stop calling different cabs for me, and they even asked general manager to give me a lift to the very important event I had to get to. Over all, they just need to upgrade some things and I would recommend this place. It's 8 dollars for a cab to 6th street. Not bad at all.

Good location for the price

About 1.8 mile walk to 6th street. Stayed here for NYE so that I could walk down without spending a ton of $. Not a pretty room, but got the job done. Staff was very helpful and friendly. I left something valuable when i checked out, and they helped me get it back when I called them later on.

Is good for a one night stay wouldn't recommend to stay longer.

Ok, could have been better but then again for a one star hotel I guess it worked still would not spend more than one night.

Austere

I wouldn't bring my wife or kids here, but it's just fine for a guy traveling alone and who's not too picky. The room was clean but smelled a bit musty. The bed was small, thin, springy, and low to the ground. Everything was pretty compact. The general area, in terms of walking around at night, seemed seedy. But, it was the cheapest room in the area just minutes from where I needed to go that weekend.

The Etiopian Restaurant next door was great. Not much for atmosphere, but great, unique food.

We spent only one night at Rodeway Inn. The location is convenient but is close to the Hwy. The AC was On the entire night so we didn't listen any noise. The staff was very helpful and we didn't have any problem. "You get what you pay"... the price was fair. We were looking exactly for that, a place to sleep. We got!
