“Nice and relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Very quick and accurate when I checked in. The front desk gentleman was kind and courteous. Room is nice. Only problem, was the gap between the door and the floor. Had to place a bath towel at the bottom of the door to prevent the wind and light from comign under the door. Hotel is set up very nice and accomodating. The bar and restaurant is comfortable. The staff in the bar are professional and friendly. pool area looks real nice. Didn't use due to cold weather. The WiFi is a little slow in areas. needs improvement on the WiFi.

Booked this on Priceline. I needed a hotel room near the Austin airport. This hotel, which looks like a motel, is 10 miles from the airport. Ugh. So much for Priceline's continued downward spiral in credibility.

I am so sorry this guest thought we were an airport property when the reservation was booked. We are 7 miles from the airport; however there is a Best Western property quite close to the Austin airport: Best Western Plus Austin Airport Inn & Suites located at 1805 Airport Commerce Drive. That Best Western property is minutes from the Austin airport.

Stayed here last October for a Univ Tex football game, and it was only about 15 minutes from the stadium, right off I-35. Don't be put off by not-very-fancy motel exterior. Though the rooms are motel style (with doors to exterior), our room was clean and updated. Breakfast was typical Holiday Inn Express-like small buffet. Though we didn't go into the lounge at night, it appeared to be very lively with a jazz band, and seemed lots of fun.

Room Tip: Try to get a room near an elevator; otherwise you'll be lugging your bags up several stairs.

Stayed here two nights and the staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful-Cody, at the front desk, is so nice! We attended a convention at the Austin Convention Center and took a cab back and forth a couple of times a day and it was around $10.00 each way. Hotel lobby is so pretty and the rooms are nice, clean and spacious. No complains whatsoever! Maid service was spot-on. Will definitely stay on. If management reads this, please give Cody a raise-she's awesome! :D

The bar/grill next door--Blue Moon-food was awful...cold and overpriced. The service was TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE! Will never, ever eat there again.
