We stayed at the Ramada this past weekend while visiting my sister in Austin. This hotel is a bit older in styling, but the rooms are very clean. For instance, the bathroom has an older feel to it, but the tile grout and bath tub caulking were extremely white and clean. The free breakfast was quite good and the location is a short cab ride/drive from downtown. For the room price and close proximity to downtown, we were quite happy.
The only downside to this hotel was a problem with our reservation. We booked two rooms, each with a single queen sized bed. Upon check in, the desk stated that our reservation was for one room with a queen, and one room with two double beds. Even though I produced our email confirmation sent from Ramada showing two rooms with a queen bed, it was stated that the hotel was sold out and our reservation was not honored. We were compensated by having our pet fee ($20) removed from the bill, but there needs to be better communication between the global Ramada online reservations and what the actual hotel reserves.
You will not receive the same atmosphere as a downtown hotel, but at 1/7th the price, I would recommend this hotel to Austin travelers. One note to travelers, a lot of websites like Priceline or Orbitz still tout this hotel as pet friendly. This policy was changed to no pets as of 9/1/10. The manager Sam said that all reservations prior to 9/1/10 would be honored, but please do not select this hotel based upon the pet friendly policy moving forward.
