This hotel was a nightmare!!!!!!!!!!!!!!If Extended Stay intends to buy & support this joke.....my suggestion is "blow it up" & start over. I intend to let them know. It ruined our weekend at the Texas? TTech game. Moldy A/C Cockroaches, dirty bathroom.

We stayed at the Wellesley Inn in late March and had a wonderful time! The staff was very curtious and most helpful with directions and different things. The hotel is a little old (probably 40 years) but that was o.k. with us. It had a beautiful view of down town Austin, TX and overlooked Austin Town Lake. The value for... More

We got a great deal on the hotel, but it was not worth it. The hotel is old. It is dirty. It is close to downtown, but not within walking distance. When you shower it doesn't drain well so you are standing in a tub full of water. The bathroom floor was very dirty. I did not take off my... More
