I went on a weekend trip to Austin with a friend. We didn't plan on staying too much in the hotel, so this was the best cheap option for us. We got a twin room with queen size beds. Our first impression was not so good, as from the outside it looked like a lousy motel and there was a strong damp smell in the room. Once you turn off the A/C in the bathroom, it will smell better.
The furniture is kinda old, but the beds are really comfortable, that's what was the most important thing for us.
The bathroom is really small, but it serves the purpose. I liked that we had a refrigerator and a hair dryer. Breakfast is limited, but it was ok for us, especially because it was included in the price. Parking and wi-fi are also free. Internet was not too fast, but it didn't drop, so that was fine for 2-3 hours of usage.
We also chose this for the location, just outside of I-35, so 3-4 miles away from Downtown.
As a conclusion, good value for the price paid, I just wouldn't stay here more than 2 nights.
