The manager was very nice and helpful. The first employee we encountered before we talked to the manager was rude and dismissive and not helpful at all. The location wasn't great and the fact that there were a bunch of guys playing dominoes in the parking lot during the day didn't help. It seemed like we were staying at a... More

Windows on the 1st floor were not secured in the room or in hallway. TV did not work. Room could use some cleaning.

To say this hotel is tired would be an undeserved compliment. We stayed here because the entire city was booked: there's a reason this was the last open hotel in town. Unappealing site, inelegant guest room, few hotel amenities, unfriendly staff. But the clincher was the dirty bathroom. The pool? Filled in and locked—although the pool furniture is still where...

This hotel was perfectly situated off the interstate, and only a few miles from downtown Austin. Right on the frontage road. We used surface roads to get downtown since the traffic on the interstate was bad, which was much easier. Hotel was clean, breakfast was great, staff friendly. The neighborhood looked a little rough in spots, but we felt safe.... More
