“Fantastic, outside of the Construction noise.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

So I must say the staff here are super nice, very accommodating and the new rooms look so cool. Very Euro. My only complaint is having stayed on the first floor when construction starts at 9 and I leave for work at 12:30. My overall rating was was a 3 only because of construction. My house keeper for this week was Rosa her services and politeness were Fantastic.

I signed up for a king room and was not disappointed. The room was very clean, well furnished, and the sound from the highway wasn't bad at all.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Sabrina at the front is especially nice. She always seems very together and professional. A far cry from most budget-ish motels.When I was unloading, I noticed the refrigerator didn't seem to be working to full potential so I went to the front desk to let them know. They regretfully informed me that the maintenance guy was gone for the day, but offered me a satisfactory discount, and the next day, when I came back in the evening, it was fine. There's a good place to take your dog out if you have one, and the pool is pretty nice for what you pay for.

Overall it's probably the best way to go if you're trying to save, but still want to be cozy, especially if you have a pet. Yeah, there's no continental breakfast or bar or anything, but it's really all you need. I have been here three days, and haven't encountered any problems except for the fridge the first day, which they compensated me for above my expectations. Great middle ground motel!

Room Tip: King bed was great, microwave, mini fridge, better than average tv, nice floors, and a good work sta...

The rooms are just so, old and musty, the usual for an older motel really. The cost is average, not the cheapest but low. Old decor and furnishings... was fairly clean for such an old "feeling" place. The bed was not very comfortable but if you're tired enough you will sleep okay. I didn't have a pain in the morning which means it was just passable in my book.

I am sorry that you were disappointed with your guest room. We are in the home stretch of a full renovation and the finished floors look incredible. I hope you will give us another try and see how nice the new rooms look.

Thanks for your comments

Kudos to the staff. Front desk staff went above and beyond.
Room was good. There was construction so that was the only downside (bathroom was not accessible in the lobby area). While it is probably a good value for Austin, I've stayed at other Red Roof Inns in other cities for slightly better price. I would consider staying her again!

Room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the staff was pleasant and helpful. The hotel is showing some signs of age but they were renovating the lobby while I was there. I don't think you can expect more for the price.

Stayed at this Red Roof Inn due to its location. Checked in and upon entering the room walked in on a guy who was already occupying the room, so was given a room across the hall. The price was reasonable but be aware that the place is going thru renovations so if your sensitive to fumes and a dust go elsewhere. Like another reviewer I noticed what I considered to be illegal if not suspicious activity in the parking lot and hotel lobby. These young hoodlums would go from sitting in their car in the parking lot to the hotel lobby lurking about and texting on their cell phones. It was clear that they were not hotel guests however never felt threatened or was bothered by them. The hotel does have security that walk the parking lot late in the evening. The staff were friendly and helpful. Sabrina at the front desk was very friendly and most pleasant to deal with and a true asset to the hotel. The room was very spacious and clean.

Room Tip: FYI I believe the renovations started on the 4th floor and working their way down, so if your lookin...

Stayed at this Red Roof for 5 weeks while working in Austin. Very reasonably priced. Staff is hard working and very nice. Gen Mgr was very helpful and concerned that every person has an enjoyable stay. Sure, if you compare this to a more exclusive hotel, you may have some gripes, but, you'll be saving $50 to $80 a night. So, Thanks Red Roof, great job!
