The valet was excellent. There is no self park. The front desk staff is nice. Location far from hip eateries at 2nd and Congress about 11 blocks away. Hotels such as Intercontinental, Driskill, and Radisson are better located and nicer, but more expensive. The room itself was laid out well. No view. We heard shouting, running, cussing, and bangs on... More

LaQuinta Inn, Austin Capitol is extremely out of date & in a literal state of disrepair. I booked a King Executive, thinking that like other, newer La Quintas I've stayed in, that it would be a larger room with sitting area & sleeping area, as shown in the pictures. This hotel has nothing of the sort, the only difference between... More

Hotel is dirty, elevators are breaking down and staff doesn't care. Walls are paper thin. Lots of smokers, clothes came home smelling of smoke, even those kept in my bag that I never took out! You are forced to use valet parking, which is a real pain in the butt. The cost was ok but not great, location to the... More

Unfortunately, this La Quinta does not live up to the usual quality we expect from this chain. The location is great, but the hotel seems to be two old buildings added together and the pool is very grungy. The valet guys are great but the front desk staff was rude. He forgot to code our key to allow us to... More

I didn't bother to see if there were rooms not facing the entrance to the hotel. The fact that valet parking was required was inconvenient. Also it contributed to the noise levels in front of the rooms. If available I would choose a room not facing the driveway. Overall a convenient location to downtown.

I was looking for a reasonably price hotel for a quick site seeing visit to Austin before a flight home the next day. I wanted to easily walk around to some of the city attractions. This motel was the one place I could find that fit my requirements and had parking. My room was not that big, the bed softer... More

Although I did not enjoy the continental breakfast, the service and room were great! Internet service was good. The 24 hr fitness room was not to big, but had adequate fitness and weight machines. Check in and Check out were very quick and valet parking was great!

The hotel is smelly and dingy. The carpet was so filthy you could literally plant seeds in the dust. I found fleas in the carpet. The towels are thin and cheap. I asked housekeeping to vacuum and dust. The vacuums were so old they were throwing out more dust. The cable sucks. There are only about 11 channels to watch.... More

Title says it all. Mandatory valet parking. Old beds, old elevators, smelly hallways, dirty carpets, peeling paint, a/c drips, moldy tiny bathrooms, unpleasant staff. Street bums nearby have better sleeping conditions; save your money and sleep outside. La Quinta corporation should be ashamed.
