The hotel was where I needed to be and it was very pleasant. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. Breakfast left lots to be desired, I walked next door for real food. Good food a few blocks away for dinner. The area left me feeling a little unsafe but it was not bad once I got into... More

Too much loud noise. Door frame had no padding and cold air pushed thru the sides. Not safe for a single female. Parking was too far and in areas where you are out of sight from front desk personnel. Toiletries are not sufficient, glad I brought my own.

My husband and I have been in and out of Austin for his work, we look for inexpensive, pet friendly hotels and we are not disappointed with this La Quinta. We were previously staying at the Red Roof Inn Plus (listed as Austin South) and it was overrun with roaches, I did not want to go back so we found... More

The front desk staff and cleaning crew are very kind and honest! I had accidentally left an expensive item in my room after I checked out and the maid helped me find it and return it to me. I was so worried that I would never get it back. You cannot imagine the relief I felt when she handed it... More

I received the ADA room requested; parking was difficult, with a narrow drive way and sloped parking spaces. Bathroom had a tub/shower combo rather than a walk-in shower only. Other than these minor inconveniences, it was a clean, comfortable room. Price and expectations matched each other. Service was friendly.

This LaQuinta is older and needs maintenance. If you are in the area look for a new LaQuinta - there are a couple that are reasonably close. I will never stay in this one again. The staff was nice and helpful but that doesn't overcome the maintenance problems and the condition of the hotel. The hotel pictures do not represent... More

This facility requires an urgent uplift, it looks old, it looks rusty, it is smelly although not unsanitary,it smells like and old house, looks untidy although it is not, it is noisy because of the highway and the back because of the premises machinery. Excellent location and that's what I selected it. And to be honest for the friday night... More

It is an old facility. Probably the oldest La Quinta's I ever saw. Location is close to Univ which is a plus, but don't want more than the basics. Also, if a woman traveling alone, I do not recommend due to exterior doors. Not worth the price by far, but I was using rewards so cannot complain of price paid.

Reservations and check-in was smooth and easy. The room was very good for the one night stay. My wife and I usually book a hotel with an indoor pool but this was our first time with La Quinta. We were not satisfied with the out door pool, thats all.

Well first of all Jason and Renesha (sorry if I misspelled that) were awesome customer service front desk representatives. Formula 1 was in town and ALL the rooms around were $159-$330 a night and I was out of hours and just needed a room for the night. A very nice quaint, clean hotel and I got in for $57.00/night with... More
