Adequate Lodging. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. My 8 year old rates their pool a 2 because It's very small. However, I would stay here again for the pricing. It is within walking distance of the bath houses and restaurants. Also, it's just minutes from Magic Springs.

This isn't a bad hotel. It's just horribly plain and generic. It seems to serve the purpose of having a place to stay but that's about it. There's no personality , nothing special. Nothing that makes you glad you are staying there. And really nothing to make you want to return. My friends and I decided to hangout in the... More

We are getting married in Hot Springs later this year and had never stayed at the Austin. It was a Thursday night and we were able to park on the street which saved us from valeting. The staff was extremely friendly, as is everyone in Hot Springs. One disappointing factor is this hotel does not have a workout facility. Our... More

Not very clean smells weird, and tiny, tiny beds. Got a roll way for my son and he hangs over the end at least a foot. And in what has to be a violation of fire code, the 8th floor hallway wad filled with furniture from other rooms being remodeled. Would not recommend.

This is a pretty good place, its about as decent as you'll find in Hot Springs! Great location near bath house row! Can be booked pretty reasonably through Priceline! Anyhow....after going to Hot Springs for several years now, we've found that the hotels in Hot Springs can be a little lacking! But this is definitely one of the better ones!... More

I stay at the Austin for a convention almost every year. It is a basic hotel that has clean non-smoking rooms (I had a colleague who stayed in a smoking room and it just seemed dirty - maybe it was the smell that got to me). I have used the hotel spa several times and it was nice. It has... More

Nothing great but adequate in a pinch. The room was older and needs refurbished. The staff was very friendly. The bed made my back hurt. Great location to historic district and very short walk to central. Pool is very small.

The hotel is in the walking distance from the happening place in Hot Springs. Yes the carpet was very old but the bed were clean and comfortable. If your motive is to be in downtown and be at the center of most of the things then yes get the hotel however if you want to relax and enjoy the hotel... More
