The property was charming. Beautiful gardens with a spacious suite. Friendly staff, excellent breakfast. Room was a little dark. Nice value. Best in price catagory! You will need transportation to explore the Austin nightlife or lakes.

Habitat is a wooded peaceful oasis in a recovering neighborhood. Although it is 30 min from my daughters house, the delightful and serene happy it is worth the drive after a day with my grandson. There is no better way to start the day than the hearty organic breakfast.

After reading some of the less-than-favorable reviews of Habitat Suites, my husband and I arrived at the hotel (over Labor Day weekend) with some apprehension. I'm happy to say our apprehension was totally unwarranted. First, the staff was excellent – courteous, professional, and genuinely friendly. Second, while not exactly 'stylish' (as the website claimed it would be), we found our... More

We love Habitat Suites! We like to get the 2 bedroom suite so our Austin kids can come stay with us. The grounds are beautifully landscaped (in a cool random way) and the salt water pool is great. Full breakfasts are a big plus! Close cab ride to night spots and a great central location to everything else! The staff... More

Hair all over the sinks, mold in the tubs, old rotten brown color carpets. Definitely not a 3 star hotel. A few miles from UT Austin so the location isn't too bad. But I would never stay at this place again. Might as well stay at a motel 6.

We disagree with the "ghetto" adjective wholeheartedly. We are not too sure why this person chose that particular term . . . regardless we are very sorry you did not enjoy your stay. All of our great team members here at Habitat Suites feel the same: we read through these reviews because we know how important they are in helping... More

We chose this hotel for a 1 night stay when we went to Austin for a meeting. It was 10 minutes from the meeting site, so that was what were looking for mainly. The price was reasonable for a last minute booking, but I've been in better hotels for the same value. The room was kind of musty and the... More

As stated in previous reviews, Austin hotels are pricey and the area around this hotel is an old shopping mall. With that in mind at check-in, I ended up being amazed by the effort put in at this place. Highlights included the large rooms (from it being an apartment conversion), food (actually cooked and not just microwaved; many thought-through little... More

Not sure where to begin, after reviewing pictures and seeing the amenities and reviews I would give this place a try. It does come with free breakfast (slept through it) and complimentary drinks and I believe snacks mon-sat 5 pm to 7pm (I missed it as well). The outside is serene and decent, upon entering my suite and turning on... More

OK, let's get this out of the way .. I think lodging in Austin is overpriced in general. And maybe this place is a little over-priced, but I think considering what you get for your money, it is a very good value. It has a tucked-away Oasis feel even though it is in North Austin across from Highland mall. The... More
