All LaQuinta's are not created equal. Chose this one because it was close to the downtown area which was a plus for us since we were spending most of our time in downtown Austin. Motel needs to be updated. Staff is friendly.

The exterior of the hotel might run you away. But once you enter the hotel the friendliness of the staff and the up keep of the rooms is worth the stay. My son was checking into UT Austin this past weekend and the location of the hotel was excellent. The room was clean and the breakfast setup was superior

TV did not work in room. Clerk was very courteous in coming to the room and confirming bad TV, then moved me to another, better, room. Only issue is that it took about an hour from the time of my call till I got into my second room.

Great location, good value, clean rooms, friendly and responsive staff. We stay here often. Restaurants and stores are nearby. Easy access to freeways. Nice pool. The free breakfast is a nice bonus. Quiet at night.

The parking lot was dark and not well lit. They were 4-5 guys Hispanic hanging out by a truck. We did not feel safe with our kids to get out of the car. Parking was issue. We couldn't find a spot that we could park in and not get door dings. We were also very concerned about our vehicle. My... More

Breakfast was limited and didn't have many options for the price I paid for the room. Otherwise it was a nice stay. We always needed more towels and they were readily available. Everything worked in the room. Clean, smelled good. We enjoyed our 3 nights there with the exception of the breakfast. It was an epic FAIL.....

Very reasonable rates and very clean room. Bath seems to have an insert for quick remodel which raised the height of the tub enclosure leaving less headroom for those who might be 6' 2"+. The breakfast has no eggs, breakfast meats or waffle maker like some newer construction La Quinta's. Apparently very popular with construction contractors.

I've stayed at numerous La Quintas and this one is by far the worst, worst, worst!!!! DO NOT STAY HERE! it was filthy, stinky, loud. I'd rather have slept in my car. My husband was solicited twice by two different prostitutes, the doggy area shouldn't be kept by guest rooms, neither should the ice machine. Didn't feel safe, people running... More
