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

Just returned my son to University of Texas. Stayed only one night and was pleasantly surprised by this property. Close location to shopping, I 35, and easy access to UT. Enjoyed the morning breakfast especially as I am a vegetarian. Nice selection of items with a health conscience vision. I was able to spend some time on the pleasant patio... More

The last time we were in Austin in 2007 we stayed here. The place has not changed and continues to be a wonderful place to stay (except they no longer have the hot tub). The hotel is green and has organic and healthy choices for breakfast. Frank , Daniel and Maudie were great in the breakfast room. Maudie ran a... More

Front Staff was sooo nice and friendly from booking our reservations to buffet staff to checkout staff. Love layout of separate bedrooms and kitchen area. Beats hotel stay from my point of view. Good center location. I will definitely return.

To be honest I was a little concerned when I pulled into the hotel, but was very surprised at this nice property hidden away just outside of downtown Austin. The rooms were good sized and the space comfortable for the family. It was well located to get to North Austin, Downtown or South of the City (St. Edwards University). Another... More

The rooms were very spacious and accommodating, it has a full kitchen . I am not sure about all of them but ours had a little living room and little kitchen a full refrigerator , stove , and dishes in the cupboards. I was very impressed with that. Unless you are five feet tall though, you might want to ask... More

We booked a 4 night stay here for mid June. My wife and I brought her father and his wife for the trip. We were hoping for a Residence Inn type stay. The rooms are extremely dated - 30 or 40 years. The stairs are not equal heights, and the concrete is falling apart. The organization of the suite was... More
