Stayed 1 night in July 2014. It is a good hotel if you want to stay close to lake/river. Activities available from hotel for lake/river..It takes about 15-20 minutes to walk 6th street. No complimentary breakfast but restaurant available in the hotel. very close to highway...Rooms are clean and nice....

Thanks for the review, short and sweet. Many of our guests love our location and take advantage of Lady Bird Lake and easy access to downtown. Yes, I guess it’s technically a lake on a river with dams on both ends and the wild Colorado below all the way to the gulf. Come back and enjoy our hotel again soon. More

I stayed at this hotel for business recently. The hotel looks worn and dated, and is located in a less than desirable neighborhood. Upon check in, the staff was polite and accommodating. I asked for a "quiet" room, and the desk employee stated my room was a "designated quiet room". I was glad for that until I actually got to... More

Thanks for your comments and compliments on out staff. It sounds like the noise from I 35 disturbed your rest. To help alleviate this in the future we’re planning to install thicker blackout curtains to go with the double paned glass that are currently on the building. Although we 175 feet from the highway, traffic noise can sometimes be a... More

The Holiday Inn on Town Lake was my first experience of booking a hotel under my name. I was in Austin for 6th street and this hotel was in a pretty good location. I had friends that walked from the hotel to 6th street, but personally I drove and had a cab drive us. It is about a 20 minute... More

We’re elated that you enjoyed your stay and took advantage of some of the hot spots near the hotel. Sixth Street is indeed a 20 minute walk be you may be sistracted if you walk through the Rainey Street District. In recent years, Rainey Street has started to rival other entertainment areas and stack up pretty well. Plus, it’s only... More

We always stay at the Holiday Inn Austin Town Lake when in Austin. We prefer the South Tower with the lake view. Great option if you're a club member. Great location for outdoor activities and walking to Rainy street. The front desk personnel are always accommodating.

Thanks for the great review. Yes our location does put you close to many features that our guests love. You may have noticed the addition of sailboat, bike and kayak rentals near the hotel. Austin Sailboat Rental does a great job and has a wide range of watercraft for all skill levels. Come back again, we love our regulars. More

I got this room at a great price through Priceline, and what a deal! My husband accompanied me as we were spending an extra night in Austin to enjoy the city.

This property is amazingly poor, despite being a national chain. We did not choose to pay the additional $30 for a view of the lake, but maybe we should have. We walked off an elevator into a hallway, noting that the elevator doors were without paint (2nd floor). We were right on, I tell you, right on the interstate, and... More

We went down for a wedding and a short girls getaway. The hotel is very convenient to downtown. The room was nice.
