2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This was a great price for the accommodations. Only complaint would be there was construction going on and seemed like a lot of locals walking around hanging out in parking lot. Plenty of food places nearby and very close to Airport.

Bugs in the kitchen need I say more? Well, they are asking for more so I will mention the construction all around with junk in the parking lot.

Check in and check out was painless. Enjoyed the breakfast and accomodations. Price reasonable with no hidden charges.

rooms looked like dorm rooms,bathrooms were not good at all

The hotel is under renovation, so I'll give them that. The room was okay, not great. The sheets were not change for the 7 days we stayed there. The refrigerator, like all of the furnishings, was old and broken. You had to lift the door to keep it shut. Otherwise it would remain open and would not cool. There were several cockroaches on the walls (have photos to prove it). The downstairs bathroom sink would not drain and the flow of water was barely a trickle. Took several minutes to fill it for shaving. As I mentioned, the carpeting and all of the furniture were old and worn out. The convertible couch in the downstairs living room was so old that you almost sank to the floor sitting on it. There was black mold in the bathroom (pictures to prove it). The downstairs toilet flushed extremely slowly. The drawer in the bottom of the stove was filthy (looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years). The silverware in the kitchen drawer was filthy and had to be run through the dishwasher before use.

Overall very pleased with the room and how clean it was the bathroom was in rough shape the fan didn't work very well the ceiling looked like it had water damage The shower head was so low you could not possibly take a shower but other than that it was a great room and I would stay there again and I would recommend it

Under construction - dumpsters and workers cars everywhere. Half way redone. Good beds but bad lighting. Rotting wood on the exterior.

Everything was great from the room to the staff and excellant breakfast!

Seems like this used to be an apartment complex. It definitely needs updating, but good price and size and amenities for the money. Easy access to I35.

Price is great for the space you get and the amenities. Not the fanciest hotel but well worth what you pay for. Customer service was awesome, very friendly, very helpful staff. I'd definitely stay again.

The hotel had no clue if my credit card had been charged so now I am trying to get my money back from one of them, the hotel or Orbits!!!! I am not happy!!!

Escellent. Location and staff.

This is a good 2 star hotel, and a bad 3 star hotel. Set your exceptions for a 2 and you will be happy.

We needed an affordable room while staying in Austin for a family wedding. We didn't particularly need a suite, but the price was right. The room wasn't anything fancy, but it was just what we needed. The bathrooms are in need of updates and the remote control was broken. We were really only in our room to shower and sleep so it wasn't all that bad!

The service was fine, [...]. At the hotel, we found there was a $100 fee for our very well behaved dog. The management was gracious to make a fee adjustment. The value received was fantastic.

Brought my son to Austin to give him a peak at what life would be like if he decided to attend UT. The hotel looked like an old converted apartment complex. It was decent, but left much to be desired.

Checked in Friday Night on 1/15/2010. When we walked into the room. The light switches did not work. Had to walk the whole room to find a light that worked. The hotel is VERY OLD. Has not had a renovation or update in 10 years. The door frame was broken. I called the front desk and the man at the desk told me "use the double lock and you will be OK". Why has the door frame not been fixed. The sheet rock is cracked on the wall and ceiling and has not been repaired. The carpet was dirty anhd we were afraid to walk in our bare feet. The room has a musty smell. The bed mattresses were VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. It was like sleeping on a slab of concrete. The pillows were very hard and uncomfortable. My neck is all knotted up from the hard pillows. The shower was dirty. The hotel put a spot light in the bath room as a heater. The air duct vents were clogged up with dust and hair. I would not recommend this hotel. [...]

Our suites were significantly more spacious and comfortable than we were expecting. Each had a living room, a kitchen, a closet, a pantry, two bathrooms, and two bedrooms. The rooms were also equipped with a full-sized refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, and dishwasher. In addition, the hotel offered complimentary hot breakfast. We would absolutely stay here again.

Friendly front desk staff. Helpful with directions around the city.
