The price is right..the staff was very friendly..the room was clean all except the trash can in the room had not been emptied. The beds are not the most comfortable, but it beats paying twice the amount of the other hotel at the end of the convention center

This was our first experience at the Austin. It was recommended by friends. The room was very nice size, the beds were a little "soft" but comfortable. The bathroom was very small but clean and usable. The check in time was very quick and efficient. The valet gentlemen were very courteous and thoughtful. We never had to wait more than... More

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
