Great units and amazing location. The entrance was very warm and the staff was amazing.

Perfect location, friendly staff, delicious treats!

Extremely friendly staff, greeted us with warm cookies, smiles and told us everything we needed to know before we had to ask. The facility was very nice and the lobby area for a hotel this size was incredible. I will definitely return to this hotel.

The property is undergoing extensive renovations. There were sawing, cutting and banging (hammering) sounds starting early in the morning. None of this was mentioned or explained by the staff at checkin, or when the reservation was made. I would not have chosen this hotel had I known this (there were others at similar price and location available).

Great staff. There was a remodeling project going on so the restaurant was closed. Toilet kept running but staff fixed it. Overall a good experience.

Great location in Austin, comfortable bed and warm cookies!

I don't have a single complaint everything was great

They gave us a room for disable guest that we didn´t ask for. They charge parking and we weren´t advise.

Hotel was fine....not outstanding. Was disappointed with the $18 additional charge for parking your own car in their empty lot. This is not a garage situation nor is there a valet. Room was nicely appointed but there was a lot of freeway noise. Very nice furnishings except the chairs. Condition of desk chair was worn and the "easy" chair was not very comfy. Reserved a king room and got one with 2 queens. Didn't complain. Bath and bath supplies were fine. Dining area is lacking in appeal but was adequate. Happy Hour folks sat outside smoking but were next to the door which brought all the smoke into the lobby.

The hotel was great. The staff was outstanding! Nice refrigerator in room. Great breakfast menu.

Hotel staff very helpful and friendly. My guest was allergic to feather pillows they changed out to synthetic cotton no problem. Warm cookies at front desk! Front desk even provided a staff recommended restaurants listing. Close to Univ of Texas. Def visit the Texas State Capital Building. Look forward to returning to Austin. Will stay at the hotel again. Mike R. Riverside NJ

They charge $15/night to park your car on the property. Very annoying, and unnecessary for a hotel which is not in the "city center", and most parking is covered by some species of nut tree which dropped HUGE amount of sap, sappy leaves, twigs and dozens of sappy olive-sized nut/fruits all over the car -- total mess, in need of a car wash next morning! Really felt like a nothing more than stealing $15 from our pocket for nothing! Beds are too firm. But the hotel is clean, and the staff is friendly. Decent location near city center if you have a car.

Only complaint was bad television reception. Everything else was fine.

We had a conference near the hotel. We were easily able to make the .8 mile walk. The hotel was right off I 35 so ver easy access. Daily drink specials at the bar with very friendly staff.

I had the pleasure of staying here recently for a week. Buffet breakfasts were terrific as were the room, bed and clean bathroom. The only downsides were the hallway noise and people who were noisy at off-hours (when folks are trying to sleep). It's next to a Denny's and not really walking distance to restaurants (0.7+ miles away). I mostly used Lyft or Uber to get around -- much less expensive than the taxi's.

Convenience. Service was good, especially in the bar. He messed up with my meal, no big deal. But I got a couple of drinks for free. The setting of the room was odd.

It was easy to find this hotel and the best part is it's walking distance to a Denny's. Didn't even have to cross the street!
