Not near the University

It was so far north, very misleading to list as in the University Area.

Sisters outing

We stayed at this hotel and the staff was very attentive.it was located near everything and we felt very safe. It's a little rundown sand this is the only reason I wouldn't give it a 5 rating

Perfect for hitting the town.

We were in a prime location to jump into I35 head to town all day. For the price we paid, this was perfect!

It is commensurate to the price

Went for 3 day vacation and the Single Queen Bed Room did just fine. The room felt humid and in need of airing out. The bathroom shower curtain rod was twisted and useless and the hair drier was nonoperational. The clothes iron worked, but could not be put away properly due to malfunctioning mechanisms. The parking lot leads straight onto the interstate with no merging area, which made for difficult mornings. Each day I was there, my car received another door ding or bumper scratch. The breakfast consisted of fruit, yogurt, cereal, bread, bagels, and waffles. I was hoping for eggs or sausage, but no luck. On the positive side, the bed was very comfortable. The TV was a fine size with a clear image. The Wifi was easily accessible and fast. The location was just a 7 minute drive from the heart of Austin. The staff were very friendly and assisted me with obtaining delayed luggage from my flight as well as finding places to eat. I got what I payed for and I was overall pleased with it.

Austin 6th Street is the place to party if you want to feel like you're at a College Frat House.

Wrong Choice!!

My wife and i were in Austin for our 35th Aniversary, soon as we arrived at the hotel we knew we had maded a mistake! Location of the hotel was in a bad neighborhood.Pulled up to hotel only to find check-in clerk out side smoking,failure to acknowledge our presence.Room omg...sheets were brown,room smelled moldy. We were booked for three nights,however,we stayed only one,took a lost for the other two.Founded another hotel did'nt want to completely blow our week-end. Nothing right about this place. Wondering how could this place be rated 3 stars?

not so good

We stayed 2 nights, but they didn't do the room the second day we were there. We talked to the receptionist and they said the maids were already gone, but that they would bring towels to the room. We did not get clean towels, so we had to use the same towels both days. We called twice and it seemed it wasn't a high priority to them.
