4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Had to make a last minute midnight stop in Austin last night and was really impressed by the Super 8. Not the dive hotel I remember back in the day. Surprised by the $95 cost (with tax) but rewarded with nice comfortable bed, clean room, quality towels, etc. It's no luxury hotel. Just nice. Some road noise outside given the location to the I-35.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I didn't expect much from a Super8 right by the main road but the rooms were very dingy and felt a bit clammy and not very clean. Despite being non-smoking rooms they smelled of smoke.

Breakfast selection was very minimal with egg from cartons and generally not much choice - but again wasn't expecting much.

Very pricey as we had to book at short notice due to another hotel cancellation.
