Disappointed

My expectations were not high. I still was disappointed. The room was OK but one of the towels was soiled. Hospitality never came in to maKe up bed or provide fresh towels during my stay. I was by the person checking me in that I was double booked by Cheap Tickets and she took care of that. I also was booked @ Super 8 Alamodome. One of the nights I stayed in Austin. I would like a call and want compensation in some sort of reduction. I also missed my flight on Sun day because the alarm did not go off costing me an additional $400. I wiull never use your service again and further action will be taken if my concerns are not addressed. Jim Emanuel

Cheap place to stay

Not as nice as other Super 8's we've stayed at...not as clean, not very generous with the towels, noisy location. But we didn't spend much time there so it wasn't that important.

What you'd expect for the price

Noisy, right by the freeway. Rooms are in definite need of a good scrub. But we were looking for a place to rest our heads for a couple hours before moving and and this hotel served it's purpose.

NOT AT ALL AS ADVERTISED

Do not mention the pool as it is a filthy cesspool. No visibility below 1 foot. DISGUSTING. No hot water on second day of stay. Toilet unsteady and roared like a jet engine.

Kinda Grungy

Found a pair of underwear in our bed. We were moved to another room but I probably won't stay at a Super 8 again!

Not really a Riverwalk Hotel

Not a bad place to stay but don't think you are going to be close to the Riverwalk. You have to get a cab to be really downtown. Rooms are clean but small. Location is right next to freeway so a little on the noisy side. A great value for the city if your on a tight budget. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Great places to eat along the Riverwalk. Most offer outside seating. Be aware of the birds if you decide to eat outside. Some locations attract lots of pigeons, ducks and other friendly birds that will want to share your meal with you. Look around before you sit down and make your dinning choice. Some get very aggressive when dinner is served!

The worst stay ever

When I checked in late on Thursday night, the desk clerk couldn't even find the reservation. When she finally did (after showing her my iitinerary, she claimed that we had reservations for only one night (Wednesday). I informed her that she was wrong and after a few minutes of fiddling with her computer she said that the person who entered it had done it incorrectly. She then had to run upstairs to find out if the room was cleaned before she checked us in. We were chechedinto the "cleaned" roomwhich wasstill filthy. The towels didn't look like they should be used. We had to ask them the followind day to clean the room. They tried. That night my friend was locked in the bathroom and couldn't get the door open. The desk clerk was able to open it with a fork.
