    This simple, budget motel was perfect for what I needed while making a business trip. I often stay in this chain, and am invariably satisfied.

    If you're looking for a great location within walking distance to downtown and don't mind the "cheap motel" feel, this will do just fine.

    Room for Appointment in Austin

    Would not recommend Fri, Jul 11, 2014
    While the room was clean, there were noticable spiders crawling on the ceiling, the bathroom wall, and the wall behind one of the beds. I was concerned because I had my daugher, grandson and 3 month old granddaughter with me. I bought bug spray from the nearby CVS and sprayed the areas where the spiders were. The Wi-Fi did not work, so a project I wanted to complete prior to my business meeting could not be finalized because of this. I will never stay in a Super 8 again.

    good room for a fair price

    Would recommend Wed, Feb 26, 2014
    This motel was quite decent. The location was great as a home base for exploring downtown and vicinity. It was prefect for me being on foot. The room was very clean and modern. Wood and tile floors. No carpet. Liked that very much. Nice flat screen with HBO. The staff I interacted with were all very nice. One issue. Noise at night. There was a multi room party going on directly upstairs from me. It was still early so I put with it for a while. I finally picked up the room phone to call the desk to request a room change but the phone didn't work. By the time I got my boots on to walk over to the office the party dispersed. I guess they went downtown. I slept with ear plugs and never heard them come back. I stayed on a Sunday and Monday. Off nights for partying in general but had a bit of it going on both nights at the motel. That said I would stay here again for sure. I always travel with ear plugs.

    Dining

    Blue Dahlia cafe was very close on 11th. Nice quiet place for breakfast or to grab a fresh coffee.

    Check in was delayed by 50 minutes!!! The grounds and exterior need tons of work. Location was great to the UT campus and downtown Austin.

    Nightlife hint

    Short five minute drive to Sixth Street, park at the Public Parking Garage on 5th and Red River.

    great experience and what you should expect for a less expensive super 8 motel. nothing amazing and flashy, but came with free wifi, continental breakfast, microwave, and a fridge which is more than most expensive hotels can say
