Disappointed from the beginning when they had no paper record of my reservation. Trusted them when they told me I had not prepayed. So, of course had to request a card reversal which they said they would do the morning of checkout and email me that it had been done. I have yet to receive the email but made a... More

When arriving at the hotel I was curious if I booked the right place. After entering the lobby and being greeted by the General Manager I felt much better about my choice. She was very helpful and had a geniune interest in making me not only feel welcomed, but valued as a guest. My room was clean, the place was... More

I was expecting a better experience in this hotel. Lighting is dark, restaurant area is kind of dirty and rooms need to be renewed. Rooms are clean and beds are ok. Although it is not a expensive hotel, making some correction would improve value for money.

The hotel was clean, and nice. Courtyard was wonderful for my dog. Only complaint - the in and out doors on the buildings are open - all the time - even at late night. Really need to beef up security. Otherwise it was a wonderful place to stay.

The Howard Johnson Inn North Austin is an archaic, grungy hotel. There are varying levels of must and cigarette smoke smell throughout the hotel. The hotel is not all that clean. The swimming pool is quite large but has terrible hours - 11 a.m.-9 p.m. The staff is not knowledgeable about questions which they should easily be able to answer.... More

Rooms were alright. Staff was mostly friendly. I stayed about 10 days on business. Seemed to be "home base" for several working girls. Breakfast was simply coffee and muffins. Coffee was always empty.
