I had stayed in this hotel when was visiting Austin for conference in October. Although the location was close to UT campus and has bus directly to convention center , the hotel is not that so so. Cons 1) Its close to major road and traffic noise is very loud 2) The rooms were gloomy and had little stink in... More

Stayed here on our first night of a long road trip, the staff were very helpful in advising on what to see and giving us maps andaking us feel safe. The location is ten mins from everything and a safe area. Rooms were adequately clean for the very cheap price size and facilities are good also for the price. Car... More

I stayed here for 2 nights after staying in Austin for a week elsewhere then driving around Texas for a few nights. It was quite cheap (80 dollars a night) but i m sure I could find a lot better for less. I am in no way fussy & look at a hotel as just somewhere to sleep & shower... More

While I did not actually stay at the hotel, I was treated very rudely by a man that claimed to be the owner. I got a flat tire and pulled into the parking lot to get off of the highway access road. A woman came out of the office and told me that I had to move my car off... More

Manager and Staff are rude, rooms are dirty! If you need to stay in this vicinity stay at the Days Inn next door!

It was just a place to lay our heads for the night and we didn't really stay in the room but from the initial looks of the place we had our doubts. Our friends bed had a used tissue in it and when we requested new linens the room they were stored in was outside and dirty as all HE**!!!... More

First I had an issue with checking in, my parents (who were not with me but were paying) had to fax over their credit card information and drivers license which was a pain. Who still faxes things when there is email? Next they did not have service enough to bring me toothpaste but rather they made me go to the... More

Conveniently locate to DKR but not worth the accomidations. Reserved with travelforecaster.com they charged 20.00 but reserved the incorrect month. So of course the price for the room was double...120.00 a night due to game weekend. If it wasn't for the fact that we were tailgating and didn't stay in our room at all I would have declined to stay... More

We placed spending money in the microwave, and went out to go get breakfast. When we returned the money was gone and when we notified the staff, they all gave us different stories about what probably happened to it and blamed it on us! We checked out immediately and called the police.
