My family stayed at the Mountain Star Lodge in Austin for a wedding in April. It was not a chain hotel so we did not expect it. The Front Desk was superb. They were professional, on hand throughout our long weekend whenever we had a question, assisted with driving directions, provided additional towels as needed, knew us by name, and... More

We were charged $113 per night (including tax). The night shift manager was always very helpful and solved the couple of things we asked for help with. Some of the towels were torn and had holes in them. Small pill type bugs found on the bathroom floor, most of which were dead. The bed was comfortable and we had a... More

The location in the hill country is great, and the prices compared to the bed and breakfasts and resorts nearby are cheap....but in this case unfortuately you get what you pay for. The decor is terrible, half the lights didn't work, one was visably pulled out of the cieling exposing wires, the ac worked but was REALLY hard to figure... More

We just needed a place to crash after a wedding nearby. There aren't many lodging choices in this particular area and I hate driving in Austin traffic so we settled for this hotel. While not a chain hotel it reminded me of a mid to lower level chain. They were stingy with the towels which were barely thicker than a... More

Went here during spring break for a baseball tournament and could not be more dissatisfied the staff is negligible and lazy and couldn't provide basic knowledge like whether or not the pool was open. The vending and ice machines are old and dirty looking. Also, the shower head in our room was broken and only sent out a tiny stream... More

DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!!!!! This was not my choice this hotel was chosen by Hotwire.com. I was in Austin for a basketball championship March 2014. I would not recommend this hotel to my worst enemy. My family and I were in room 118 first off the hotel is too far from the city center, secondly the room had falling fixtures,... More

Do NOT stay here! We were in room 218 - upstairs, end of the building. There was NO light on the landing so couldn't even see our room. There were 3 people checking in - 2 sets of towels (a host at the office should have asked and provided an extra set). No TV (What?). No Elevator to second floor.... More

Stayed here for a wedding. After checking into room we noticed meldew in the bathroon. The baseboards were rotting off. The room smelled of bad food. The shower pipes were louder than the TV and no water pressure. The next morning there was no hot water. Do not stay here.

This hotel is in an area of Austin that has really grown in the last few years with new housing, restaurants and retail outlets. However, this hotel must of been built before all this happened and has not been kept up. In my opinion, it is in a run down condition with maintenance performed only when absolutely necessary. We were... More

Like in most hotels in the US, the breakfast could be improved substantially. I found the hotel quite clean and the service at the fornt desk was great. However, I found the prices a bit expensive for what they have to offer.
