ive stayed in many motels in this area of Austin on business trips and the experience is always the same. not very good. the area is very convenient since its around all the major highways running thru Austin, BUT the area is VERY rundown.
The area is pretty bad. Surrounded by lower income housing and vacant businesses, there are alot of bum's and panhandlers walking the streets all day and night. All the property in the area, (motels, stores, businesses, etc) are all old and have not been renovated so things look pretty beat up. While the motel itself isnt bad, I wouldnt bring my family here for a long stay or anything mostly due to safety concerns. 90% of the motels ive visited in this area, lock the front office after 10pm to keep un-wanted people from coming inside and loitering around the lobby and building, trying to use facilities like the laundry room, pool, gym, and business centers.
The hotel room itself was in decent condition but definitely has some wear and tear on the carpeting, kitchen counters, in the bathroom, and on the furniture. The double bed room was pretty big with a full kitchen (full fridge, mini stove, full size microwave, kitchen sink, small bar, they even provide glasswear, silverwear, and a pots & pans set to use), 2 beds, big closet, small sitting area with loveseat and table, small desk area, and 32" flatscreen tv.
During my stay, housekeeping never came by so the room was never refreshed. Most other motels/hotels will come by every day and make the beds, provide fresh bathroom linens, take out the trash, and basically refresh the room. I guess they do not do that at this motel.
The property itself is somewhat old but they still seem to be able to maintain it decently. They have a small lobby and sitting area with a flat screen tv on the wall and a very small breakfast bar which only provides, coffee, apples, oranges, and packaged breakfasts (packaged muffins, breakfast bars, and oatmeal). All the other motels ive stayed at in this area provide WAY more breakfast options so this was pretty disappointing.
There is a small laundry facility and a tiny room used a gym with 3 cardio machines. Everything was dated but seemed to be in good condition.
They also provide free wifi so that is always a good perk while traveling.
Overall, a decent stay. This place is ok for quick stops for a night or short business trips when you need a low cost place to stay with features like a mini studio. (the full kitchen in the rooms and the laundry facility makes it feel like a mini apartment)
I might stay here again if i have to go back for business.
