Pulled in at 8pm after we had been driving all day. Had been on holidays for 3 weeks and had our share of good and bad hotels. This top them all. Good price, great service from a very friendly guy to check in (friendliest person at any hotel we stayed). Room was very clean. Bed was very comfy, good shower... More

I stay at this location about once a month for business. When you drive up to the hotel you will not be impressed by the exterior, but once you walk inside any concerns you have will be alleviated. The property is clean, the rooms are well appointed, and the staff is welcoming. The on site interested is pretty good as... More

I spent several nights yearly at the Lakeway and never have I had a bad stay. The property is clean, well maintained and always updated. When you first walk in you can help but notice the lobby staff welcoming you to the hotel. The room is well furnished and roomy, always get a good night sleep. The indoor pool and... More

My reviews are based on several criteria, then averaged for a final tally. Appearance: The hotel is pretty ugly 60s/70s architecture. This is why there are no exterior photos on the website! Not much the hotel can do here, but even so, it is an ugly hotel. Even worse is the fact that it is in a giant parking lot... More

I spent six nights at the Lakeway Inn over the Christmas week. The place is clean, if a bit sterile and the lobby could use some freshening, but there was nothing offensive about it. The lobby staff was incredibly uneven, some staff was both friendly and helpful and other staff members not so much. The room was also clean and... More

The people who work here are great! They are most helpful and aim to please, but best of all is their friendly welcoming attitudes. From the front desk, the Oboe restaurant, and the housekeepers, there is always a smile and genuine interest in making your stay the best. Thanks to all the employees!
