First, the location: You can walk to South Congress, Town Lake Park, downtown -- it's really very nicely situated. However, it's very basic. The bed is not particularly comfortable and there are NO accoutrements in the room. You have to request coffee cups, coffee pot, dishes, silverware, etc. We even had to ask for an alarm clock. They accept pets... More

I recommend paying more to stay somewhere else. When we arrived at 4:30, they said we would need to wait to check in so they could have a "clean" room for us. The wait was only about 10 minutes but the room was not clean. The first thing we noticed was that the room smelled strongly like body odor. There... More

This is a good budget hotel that is close to downtown, and it has free parking. It is not a typical hotel, though. There is no daily maid service, no pool or exercise room, and the hotel can be fairly noisy, even though there is a quiet time from 10:00 pm on. The noise is from the doors opening and... More

I got a great price on this from one of those "don't show you the name" sites last trip to Austin, and I found it adequate. I disagreed with that web site's star rating for the place: there is no maid service, however you may exchange soiled towels at the front desk, there is a kitchen in each room, however... More

Stayed here for one night in June. First of all the price was fantastic. I got a deal for $56 + tax on Priceline (one of Priceline's Express Deals). The location was perfect. Just a few blocks from the heart of downtown Austin. I had a meeting on Congress St. which was just a short 4-5 block walk. The meeting... More

This hotel is the place to stay if you need to be in Austin on a budget. The nicer hotels in the area can be very expensive and this one was very reasonable when we were there. The hotel itself is nice and the bed was comfortable but it does not have some of the other amenities that the other... More

Generally a nice place to stay. Kitchen is equipped quite bascially. Nearest supermarket is driving distance away. Location is fair, just outside the dowtown centre but close to alot of public transport. Rooms are alright, fairly clean. All in all alright. I felt that the reception could use with extra staff, they are often on the phone or answering queries... More

The price for this hotel has increased significantly as have prices for all downtown Austin hotels. Look for discounts; sign up for alerts, which offer 25-20% discounts. Prices go down as you get closer to travel dates depending on booking. Suites are dated and do not look remodeled, as the hotel website states. Popcorn ceilings, worn bed sheets. Roomy with... More

Asked for non-smoking room when reserving online, but somehow got assigned to a smoke room covered by heavy cleaning perfumes. (First night) Water heater was not working for whole hotel second day morning. They did repair it, but I had to delay my meeting.

Leaking bathtub facet and shower didn't work properly. Slamming neighbor's doors made it difficult to sleep. Asked housekeeper to change towels but, she never did. Front desk staff were cold and impersonal.
