My wife and I requested two rooms as we were traveling with another family having a month old baby. On our arrival the rooms were ready and upon inspection, found the rooms were very clean and all appliances working. The staff went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure the family with the baby was comfortable for... More

I stay at this hotel anytime I need to come to Austin. Why? Because it's inexpensive, recently remodeled, includes a hot breakfast (eggs, sausage, waffles, etc.), and the staff has always been friendly (especially Ebony at the front desk). I've always had a good experience.

At first, this place seemed pretty sketchy because we asked for a nonsmoking room and we're given a room with ashtrays and a distinct cigarette smell. The room was a little bit run down as well. However, the service at the front desk was excellent and Porsha was able to quickly switch our room to a nonsmoking room that was... More

The hotel is located in East Austin, about 20 min walk from downtown. It is separated by a highway network but ther is pedestrian walk with good traffic lights to pass safely. This Super 8 is a pure motel style. I find it reasonably clean, and had a renovated room with nice new wood floors. There is a working Wifi... More

Check-in was fairly easily. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was the exact opposite. There was a hole in the wall where the door handle was. The extra security lock was broken off from the door. We reserved a non smoking room but it still smelled musty and like stale cigarette smoke. The carpet had stains.The lampshade... More
