“You'll be surprised!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Considering the prices charged by other Austin hotels/motels, this place is a steal. Front desk staff is very helpful. Rooms are large & cheery with fridge & microwave. Very clean. Nice TV. However, rooms could use brighter light bulbs & the fluorescent lighting in the bathroom is a bit scary. Housekeeping does a very good job. Grounds are nicely landscaped & well maintained. You'll feel safe outside no matter what time of day. Great perk is the free breakfast. Definitely not shabby. Hot & cold offerings, juices, fruit, & rather good coffee. Breakfast room is constantly being restocked & cleaned. Have stayed here several times & will keep coming back. You can tell that the management really cares about the property. And that makes a huge difference., but could use brighter light bulbs.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the back above the ground floor. Nice views from the room windows there. Very quiet...

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!

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
