2 Moving The Chi spent a week in Austin TX. We started at an Extended Stay America (see separate review) and moved to this Super 8 the next night. This property has a very good location to downtown and the university, being on the west side of I35 just south of the Highway 290 and I35 intersection. We looked at a number of other hotels/motels at this intersection and ended up selecting this Super 8.
The property must have had security problems in the past since it is surrounded by a high iron fence. When checking in, there is a large flat screen monitor behind the desk with dozens of cameras focused on different areas of the property. It made us feel both secure and apprehensive.
We asked to see a room and were shown a room on the second floor facing away from the interstate. It was clean, quiet, comfortable and had good internet. The property was in the midst of renovations, so there was unpacked furniture by the ice machine, and workers around most of the day.
If you are in need of a comfortable night’s sleep, a hot shower for a reasonable price, with friendly, helpful staff, this property is a good pick. And if you like Mexican food, Amaya’s Taco Village, a local Austin favorite, is a short walk from the motel.
We only stayed one night. We were a bit concerned about security and found another Super 8 off highway 183, which we used for the remainder of our visit in Austin. (See separate review).
