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.

Vacation to the Lone Star State

The place was okay for the value. I thought there would be more for the continental breakfast but that was still okay. The room was always clean and all the appliances worked. Internet didn't work in the room we were staying even though Super 8 stated it should.

Good one night for business in the area

The food, room, and people service was excellent. The people were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay there again. Also, I appreciated the lower prices compared to the general Austin area.

Horrible Sleeper

The internet pictures must have been taken when the hotel first opened. The sleeper sofa was scary. I did not allow my children to unfold it. Instead I ended up purchasing an air mattress from Walmart! Would not recommend this hotel for families.

Very Comfortable

I was actually pleasantly surprised with how the room was. The pillows may have been the most comfortable hotel pillows I've ever slept on. It was a little further away from the city center, but not hard to get to. The staff was really nice, but they kept it bare boned so if there was a line there is only one person at the desk which meant you had to wait a while to get anything you needed. The breakfast was ok - can't complain when it's included in the cost.

If you visit Austin, and you like unique shops - I recommend Congress Ave. Uncommon Objects was so much fun to go and see all the different things!
