I got what I paid for...

The value was there, but generally the motel was run down, tired, old and dirty. I had trouble getting to it the first time and Austin traffic made it difficult to go anywhere.

The LBJ Library was interesting and worth the price of admission.

Easy Access, Great Price, Needs a lot of work

Drove in late and got in an accessible room. The staff was great. Plenty of space for wheelchair in the room. Was advertised as a "Roll in Shower"-- was not. Standard shower with a seat you could put in the shower. Sink was standard height sink, chin height for wheelchair guest (too high). The On-site Security golf Cart was parked in the Accessible Parking all night. Bugs in room. But its Texas. So I will even let that slide. Easy Access to downtown Austin.

Not clean

The room smelled funky. There was hair in the sink and on the counter. And stains in the shower that washed away as soon as water hit them.

Birthday trip to 6th street

Breakfast was great! Every employee was nice and polite! Room was a bit rundown. Comforters had cigarette holes even though it was a non smoking room. Bed was comfy. The mini fridge did not work. The microwave did not work. A little pricy. $300 for 2 nights.

Next door is baby acapulcos. Do not go! It is literally the worst service and the nastiest food ever! Take a cab and find a taco cabana. Even a Taco Bell would be better

Good for the money

The room itself was not bad at all. For the money you pay to stay here, I can say it's good enough. The hallways are dirty and trash can be seen throughout the property, but the room was clean. The elevator does not work all the time, sometimes you have to continuously push the button for the elevator to come.

Not a good value experience

Hotels with availability in Austin are hard to find so we ended up at this hotel about 4 miles away. Hotel demand is high so the hotel was priced much higher than this hotel should have been charging. Our room was spacious, but that's about all it had going for it. There was 1 dim light in the whole room so it was extremely dark. We had to drive to the downtown so felt the hotel was out of the way. If the price was cheap then it'd be fine to stay in because you get what you pay for, but I felt this place was completely overpriced.

Great place, great location!

I think it was excellent considering the cost and the location, event though its located on the avenue it was comfortable and quiet, just the garbage recolectors woke us up at 3 am one nigth, but beside that, everything was ok!
