“Clean and good value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

The rooms were big, clean and cheap. It was a $15 cab ride into downtown. The only downside was the poor breakfast and bad coffee.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

This was a very nice Super 8. Staff is very nice and accommodating. The hot breakfast was really good. The Mexican food restaurant next door was very convenient for dinner, Rooms have refrigerators and irons. The staff was very fast to quieten hotel guest that were laughing and talking outside my room in the middle of the night. The only complaint I have is that the drain in the bathtub did not work. I am defiantly staying here my next trip to the capital!

We have stayed in many super8's.
And this was no different - or was it ?
I cannot say that there were bed bugs, but I can only say that the next day - my arms were completely covered with small blisters, they itched like crazy.
On my hips - the same - and 5-10 blisters on both my legs.
We have stayed in many hotels in the USA, during the last 6 years.
And never never ever, have we experienced this (knock on wood).
We always check the beds, but obviously not good enough this time
Don't expect to visit Austin again, but if we do - we will stay in another hotel.
Reception : Didn't have that "WELCOME" attitude - more like "okay - you're here, so what"...
