“Great business/tourist hotel, value for money in a fun location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Went to Austin in December for a night of craziness.....and chose this hotel for it's location, value, and as it was recommended for it's great staff.

Their owner/manager (Jay i believe his name) was very accommodating and told me the best places to visit etc.

Rooms were surprisingly clean and spacious compared to other Super8 hotels i have stayed at.

For a "no frills" hotel....this has to be the best place around there.

PS: There is a mexican bar right next door....excellent "Southern Hospitality" service!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

We stayed here during sxsw and it was the last room available in town. Nothing special, staff didn't seem interested in helping with anything extra. Room was dingy but smelled cleaner than it looked. It wouldnt recommend especially for the price we paid. Over $200 ab night during events... Would say is about a $50 motel.

Room Tip: Expect to be price gouged during events

The hotel location was great for all the places we needed to go and the price was resonable. If you stay here, try not to get a room close to the vending machines, people were there every hr getting ice, pop, etc until about 5am and one nite was a Sunday. Generally breakfast is very good at Super 8, but not at this one. Lack of selection and when an item ran out you didn't know if it was going to be replenished.
