Arrived late and dropped off our stuff and headed out to south Austin for a friend's birthday dinner, so we really didn't see the issues in the light of day. We reserved the two bedroom suite, but MANY improvements are needed! We wanted a place with a kitchen to save money, but this hotel was overall such a disappointment, we... More

We stayed for one night .the principle is great but our room had wallpaper peeling from mouldy walls in the bathroom, and there were cracked floors in the bathroom and the kitchen area. Appliances so old I did not wish to use them. To relax there was a two seater sofa and one easy chair in a two bedroom apartment... More

This establishment was beyond disappointing, to say the least... Disgusting, broken down and the General Manager is an absolute joke of a manager. Where should i begin? The Location: When i booked the hotel, it seemed to display the property location shortly outside of Downtown. Since i was there for 4th of July festivities, that sounded perfect. It's actually a...

Stayed here for a couple nights towards the end of June. I had flown to Texas to visit my son who is stationed at Ft Hood and we headed out to see some sights of TX over the weekend. Being the hotel offered basically a small 2 bedroom apartment, it worked well for our needs. Definately needed updating - the... More

I love the idea of this place. More "suite" hotels should be available. This hotel is all suites, which is super cool. Basically, private beds and baths with a shared living room and kitchen area. In the case of this hotel, the suites are all unique units accessed from outside entrances. There is a main building on the site that... More

I don't think this hotel has been updated for 30 years. The 70's is calling and wants its furniture back. Wallpaper peeling off walls, stains on rugs, drapes, walls, etc. I am 52 and microwave was so outdated, I didn't even know how to operate. There is a sitting area in the two bedroom suite, but if you have more... More

The shower was a little hard to operate, confusing knobs, but the room was nice and you do get a full kitchen. I was not happy that they suspended happy hour for the entire 4th of July weekend due to the holiday. The hotel should be run for the pleasure of the guests not the convenience of the staff. If...

Location Was Good, Room Was Actually A One Bedroom Apartment With A Full Kitchen Which Was Great. They Have A Quiet Policy After Ten PM Which Is Great In Theory But There Is A Restaurant/Bar Next Door From Which I Could Hear Loud Music, Shouting And A DJ Until The Wee Hours Every Night. I Didn't Get Decent Night's Sleep... More

This suite seems to be a renovated old apartment complex. The floor plan was nice to my family. We stayed in 2 bedroom suite and it has a king bed downstairs and a queen bed upstairs. It has fully equipped kitchen along with some utensils and pots you could use, and full sized refrigerator (it was a bit old and... More

My sister and I had a great stay at the Habitat Suites. The grounds were lovely; the staff couldn't have been more professional, and the rooms served our purpose--a good night's sleep. Breakfast was surprisingly good.
