This hotel was very nice. The staff was great. Our room was very nice and clean. Seemed to be newly updated. The location was perfect for us. It is located in a very nice area. Great access to highways. Will stay there again.

Reviews of the Holiday Inn Arboretum saying it's old or run down are, at best, way out of date. We stayed there over the first weekend in May 2009, and it was great -- clean, in good shape, excellent service from the staff. The hotel no doubt has been updated not long back. We had several family groups there for... More

I was in town for a tennis tournament and needed this area of town. After reading some of the reviews I thought this hotel would be fine. Wrong! The hotel was old. The air conditioner in my room was old and loud. Every time it turned on it woke me up. The hot tub was not working. The staff was... More

My husband was already staying at this hotel for business when I joined him for a long weekend in Austin. They had a negotiated business rate of $110/night which wasn't bad. Since we decided to stay the weekend as well, which should have been cheaper, my husband decided to check in with the front desk to see if we could... More

Nice quiet stay. The room was clean and nicely decorated. We had breakfast at their restaurant and ordered off the menu, it was good, just a little expensive but still worth it for the promptness, attentive wait staff, and convenience. I was not happy that we couldn't get a rollaway bed (against firecode). My biggest complaint is; the pool was... More

Nice entrance. Nice common area. Room decor was updated though walls had not been painted and where scratched and marked. I often stay with HI for business and this was average at best.

As a regular business traveler, I wouldn't normally select a holiday inn. My travel agent (a new one bent on saving my co $ did it.) At just under $200/night it was the cheapest ok property in the business park area. It wasn't the easiest thing to find, even with a GPS in my car. The room was very 70s... More

This hotel caters to receptions and reception guests only. Although the reception rooms are on the other side of the hotel, the hotel does nothing to ensure that their late night party guests do not bother their other hotel guests. When we called about he noise they apologized but asked us to be patient since one of their receptions was... More

First time we've stayed at a Holiday Inn in awhile. Pretty good experience. Prices in most Austin hotels were high because of the SXSW music event in Austin, but the Holiday Inn's prices were very reasonable. The hotel is a little off the beaten track, but it's findable. The public areas were nice. Took advantage of the free Internet in... More

This Holiday Inn has been operating for many years at this location, but you could never tell it by it's appearance. It's only siginficant deterrent is it's not obvious access behind an apartment complex, and somewhat difficult to locate in the dark. The front doors did not have automatic electric openers, which is unusual for a full service hotel of... More
