We stayed over in Austin from Dallas. We were greeted by a nice staff member. We started the AC and left for few hours. On our way back, the AC was still not working, Sam called maintenance who was not in the building. I noticed there was no soap, and the control remote was broken so I went downstairs and... More

In Austin for a family reunion. Standard HIExpress, on interstate highway, not in very good neighborhood, nothing within walking distance. The hotel recommended a restaurant, but when we drove there it turned out to be a delivery/takeout only place. Stayed two nights, rate was changed for second night from amount we were told when we made the reservation even though... More

We stayed over in Austin for 1 night while traveling between Texas and Florida. We got this hotel via a Priceline Express Deal. The hotel staff was professional but the property is fairly rundown and not very clean. Our room was adequate. The location was right off the interstate, so convenient to drive to other parts of Austin but is... More

My husband and I go to Austin once or twice each year and always stay at this hotel. The rooms are always very clean and the service is excellent. Their breakfast selections are good. Their afternoon snack of fresh cookies and lemonade is very pleasant.

I love that the place has a gym, breakfast, and business Internet area. The room is decently nice and the service was nice too. The location is close to IH35 but sometimes it's hard to find the entrance to the hotel. I typically feel that Holiday Inns are a great bang for your buck.

I picked this hotel as a place to stay overnight on a business trip based on my experience with a Little Rock Arkansas location. The hotel overall was clean, and the staff was very friendly.

We were drop ins and got a twin room promptly, with free wi-fi. The room was pleasant and well appointed and all fairly standard. The hotel is well located on the I 35.

Careful of the directions, as it is easily confused with similar property further south. Pleasant standard-issue hotel, clean and light, easy place to stay and meet local family. We had 2 rooms for the weekend, no problem, except a rather sassy morning manager who questioned my wife's credentials when she arrived separately. Great breakfast. A surprisingly nice touch: we checked... More

There were no surprises here, which is a good thing. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was comfortable with a good work area and a bed that was neither too firm nor too soft. A fridge and microwave oven were nice touches. I especially liked the pancake machine at breakfast. If you stay here, be sure to... More
