The entrance was not the lovely lobby in the picture - it is a backdoor across from a parking lot looking over Ihop. The carpets in the hallway were filthy and there was dog poop in the elevator one night into mid-day the next day. I like that they use Meyers products, but would have liked lotion to be included. The bed was super comfortable, but would have liked network TV in the bedroom (the only option was roku with netflix, etc.) The apartment complex is right next to the freeway, thankfully well soundproofed, but no view from my 2 bd apartment. The location next to Rainy street is great - fun music, etc. Overall, the property was OK.

Lack of water pressure and hot water would keep us from returning. Otherwise, it was great for us!

I love this place. It is in a perfect location for everything in Austin. It was clean, quiet and fully stocked.

Excellent property and the service was just what I needed. No complications.

Great Rainey Street location, close to downtown and close to restaurants and bars. Despite nearby clubs, it was fairly quiet. Great access to the running trail around the lake. Apartment was utilitarian, sparsely decorated (not that I cared). TV was wonky; if you've got your own Netflix or Hulu, you can use it, but no regular cable/satellite/broadcast TV.

No staff on site. The check in process is a pain. Parking was free but also somewhat of a painful process. The bathroom was filthy. The shower curtain needed to be replaced, the soap dispenser didn't work and when the top was opened rusty soap was on top. There was hair on the floor when we arrived.

Hey there, thank you for the review! We really appreciate your feedback, as it will only help us get better :) We do offer standard cable, but I know many people like local channels, which we are working on as we speak! Also, we definitely appreciate the minimalist approach ;) Thanks again for staying with us, and we hope to host you again in the future!

James, we apologize for the mishaps. We've gone ahead and approved a plan for this month to replace all of our original shower curtains, liners and soap dispensers throughout the building. We're also taking a much closer look at our check-in and parking process to streamline it even further. Most of our guests enjoy the keyless entry, as there is no waiting in long lines at the front desk to check in. It can get take a few extra minutes to park but glad you found it a useful amenity. Thanks again for staying with us and for the candid feedback.
