“Great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014 via mobile

I was surprised by this hotel. Friendly staff, clean rooms, and nice location. Everything is a short drive and their are plenty of nearby restaurants. This hotel is not IN the middle of Austin, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's close enough to where getting somewhere in Austin isn't painfully far, and just far enough to not deal with that horrible traffic near rush hour. You can easily navigate using the "back roads" to get to Austin attractions from here. Tried to eat at Franklins BBQ, which was only 12 minutes away, but that didn't work out. I came here on business but have stayed at other hotels in Austin in the past on pleasure. I would seriously consider coming back to this hotel on pleasure for the avoidance of traffic alone!

Decent hotel rooms in "Awestun" seem to have gone costly since my last visit so this was a good find. Rooms are Texas-large suites for just under $100 when I worked them for a rate on a Sunday night (I compare with online deals and ask to give them a bit less and keep my full payment for themselves). Nothing fancy, but neither was the price. It is about 12 miles north of downtown but traffic on I-35 up there was a pleasure compared to anywhere near the center of the city. Usual cookie-cutter full breakfast but wish they had fresh fruit to offset the naughtier stuff that I won't eat unless the quality makes it worth the calories. The Roost, a great! music venue 2 minutes away was my reason to stay there but you should check who's playin' as I'm in the biz and this is the nicest club venue in town.

Room Tip: Might wanna get the top floor if you like to sleep in and you're a light sleeper as you can fain...

My boyfriend and I stayed one night at this hotel while visiting Austin. We booked a king size bedroom suite which was large but very outdated. While the room was not dirty, the age of the furniture, décor, etc. just made me feel a bit uncomfortable / unclean. Compared to the price of this hotel (which was $10 more a night than the airport hotel we stayed in for the remainder of our trip and which was very modern / clean) I did not feel that this was a good value for the price. The price did include a buffet style breakfast. We would not recommend this hotel nor would we stay here again considering there are numerous options in the area.

I had a friend traveling over spring break with her young daughter. Several of us who didn't live in the area, but wanted to see them, drove into town. So, we booked two rooms right across from each other, so all our kids could catch up and play and have fun. The suites worked out great, the adults were able to talk and catch up while the kids played and watched tv in the other room. The front room is small, but it served our purposes just fine. No DVD player was a bit of a surprise, but we managed. Housekeeping keeps place looking very clean. Great prices/good breakfast. Everyone, including the kids were all able to find something they liked to eat and it wasn't super crowded. Good location. We had dinner at Fish Daddy's, just across the interstate, and we all really enjoyed it. GREAT margarita swirls! :)

Room Tip: We needed to be at the end of the hall, because we had a lot of kids running back and forth between...

Parking lot is too small. Several large trucks would take up 3 or 4 spots. Interior Lobby is nice/cozy. Rooms are large. 15 Mins to Outlet mall. 30-40 mins to downtown Austin. Has a pool and outside courtyard. No bar on site. Two LCDs in room. 2 or 3 HD channels.

Suite composed of front small room with old desk/sofa. Housekeeping keeps place looking very clean. Great prices/good breakfest.

This was a good place for our overnight visit to Austin. If you are planning to go downtown it might be a bit out of the way. For our needs it was fine. There are lots of restaurants around the area - we ate at Cheddars because of Trip advisor recommendations and it was spot on. Great food, great prices and yummy margaritas that were huge and cheap! DH left his laptop in the hotel and they called shortly after we left - thank you!! Rooms are big, but as someone mentioned they are kind of dark. The breakfast had a nice selection and wasn't crowded.
