Easy route to airport.

I needed a hotel near the airport but at a good price. I found no problems during my stay.

Cockroaches

I don't expect much from a Super 8, and this unit provided most of that not-much. The beds were ok and the bathroom was reasonably clean. The location was right on I-35, but I knew that when I booked. What I didn't know was that my room was home to a large and growing family of cockroaches. They were scuttling across the floor, on the dresser and in the bathroom. The family patriarch passed away while I was there -- alas-- I found him dead on the bathroom floor. I gave him an honorable burial at sea.

Service

good value for the service provided; breakfast included. internet works fine, especially they have ethernet connection in a room next to the breakfast area. I had trouble using their wi-fi. But, problem was solved before I checked out. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Nice for a simple stay

I was in town for a short visit and this was ideal for the price offered. It's a little tough to find for cabs, but close enough to downtown that you're not spending a bunch on the fare. During my visit they were having a remodel so some construction was happening during my stay. The free breakfast was ok. Just need to get down early for a spot to sit. Friendly staff although I shared an elevator with someone who walked into an Employees Only room after we got off. He didn't even offer a Hello

Convenient and cheap but loud

The place had doors opening all night and the spotlights from the parking lot make your room look like daylight all night so was extremely hard to sleep. And I accidentally forgot our pillows on our bed which someone couldn't find the next day for us to pick up, odd since they were bright yellow.

No frills, clean motel

Our stay was pretty unremarkable, the hotel offers good value. Maybe a little bit noisy, but that is to be expected for a hotel right next to a busy freeway. The beds could be harder, they were very soft. Some folks like that, I prefer firmer surfaces.

You get what you pay for!

I had a good stay and didn't have any major complaints. The air conditioner leaked water ALL NIGHT even when it was turned off. The carpet was soaked and gross the next morning. However, the staffer got the entire unit replaced, brand new, and the carpet had been cleaned as well. We were surprised how good the staff was and there's no doubt this is the best value for the money. It is annoying to get to/from downtown Austin but that's because of the traffic at certain days/times (Friday rush hour anyone?) The breakfast is minimal but you don't really go there for the food. You go there because it's cheap! You can't beat the price!!! Thank you Super 8!!!
