“Good hotel for race weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We stayed for the weekend attending the MotoGp race at Circuit of the Americas. The hotel location is perfect for getting to the airport, the track and downtown Austin quickly. We had a king suite, which we thought would be more spacious. The room was not spacious. For two people in the room, we were regularly on top of each other. There was not a good place to put our luggage, so we were stepping over bags. There was a small amount of room to get around the bed to the sofa area. If we had additional people in the room, it would have been very uncomfortable. The room itself was fairly clean and the rooms were quiet, we didn't hear people in the halls and we know the hotel was full. Breakfast was good. It was crowded for breakfast, again the hotel was full, but the food was available consistently when people came in. The flow of the breakfast set up should be looked at, you walk in and you can't just start getting fruit or any food because the plates are in the middle. Overall, we would consider staying here again for races.

Room Tip: We stayed in a king suite on the 2nd floor, it did not flow well for 2 people, it was hard to get ar...

The main reason I picked this hotel because I thought I know what to expect from Marriott properties and so far I never get disappointed till I stay here at the SpringHill Suites Austin South.

The room was outdated! The breakfast was very standard but not bad at all...the girl at the front desk when we checked in was nice and friendly... but just can't really stand with the room..it could've been much better... just shown some aging and outdated!! the carpet, the wall, the bathroom...the furniture.. just dull and didn't look so clean to me! sorry..!

Good thing we only stayed for 1 night...it would be nice if they pay attention more details to the updated room design within reasonable company budget... there's no bath gel in the shower (just the bar soap so for us who stayed with friends not really comfortable to share the soap..the bath gel would be more make sense to us)..no trash bean in the bathroom (there's one outside the bathroom under the sink) but would be nice to have one inside the bathroom too!

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I'm glad that you found our front desk associates friendly.
We are due for a renovation, which I think will solve nearly each concern you mentioned in your review. We are anticipating a full renovation in early 2014 so we do hope that you will give us another try at that time.
When Springhill Suites South was built in 2000 the highway was not developed like it is today in 2013, therefore we do our best to accomodate for those that are not used to the city. We have a few options to offer, most popular, moving to a room on the other side of the hotel.
We do have maps and addresses on ou website that show the distance from downtown and the airport. We also offer complimentary shuttles to the downtown area nightly for your pleasure.
We thank you again for taking the time to review our hotel, we will definitely have that 'new' hotel look in early 2014 so we hope to see you soon!

This hotel is one of at least 4 Marriott properties grouped together just off of I-35 in Austin. I will try another one the next time I'm in the area. This hotel was kind of dingy - the hallways, my room. A totally forgettable hotel experience, except that my room smelled very strongly of soap (which seems good, but the soap they provided didn't smell like that so wondering where it came from; it was overwhelming).

They have free breakfast in the morning, so that's a plus. It was really crowded - I didn't stay, just grabbed some tea and a banana and left, so I can't comment further on breakfast.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I see that overall you had a positive experience, however our goal is to exceed your expectations. I wanted to take a moment to touch on a couple items that you mentioned in your review. Out of the 5 Marriott properties we are the last to receive our renovation, we should have it completed within upcoming 12 months. Although we take cleanliness seriously sometimes the natural wear and tear to the human eye might seem 'dingy', however I can assure you cleanliness is of high importance at Springhill Suites South. The soap smell in your guest room is due to our cleaning efforts to ensure that each room smells fresh and is spotless. You also mentioned breakfast, we are the only hotel in the cluster of Marriotts that you referenced therefore it is very popular. We also offer to go bags for those without time to sit and enjoy our Texas shaped waffles, fresh fruites, scrambled and boiled eggs, etc.
Thank you again for reviewing our hotel, we hope you will give us another try next time you're visiting Austin.

I stayed here for 2 nights on business. The room was adequate, but it was tired old decor...looked beaten down. The "hot breakfast" consists of those "instant eggs" - yuk! It's what you get at 2-star places...I expected more here.

But, the FRONT DESK ROCKS! The young women there worked hard to help us when we had car trouble, needed a restaurant reference, a phone number, and suggestions for transportation.
I got 5-star service from these young women...they made this rating to 3 stars (it would have been 2 stars).

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back, away from the highway.

Thank you for taking time to review our hotel. I am very happy to hear we could assist with your car trouble. We are looking to receive a full renovation within the upcoming 12 months so I hope that you will give us a second chance upon your next visit to Austin. Our breakfast is one of the main reasons our guests choose to stay with us, we are the only hotel in the area that offers an extensive breakfast including: scrambled and boiled eggs, deli meats, cheese tray, pastries, Texas shaped waffles, fresh fruits, cereals, yogurts and much more. Our eggs are not instant and are made each morning fresh. We hope that although you didn't enjoy the scrambled eggs you could find something to enjoy.
Thank you again for your review. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

I only spent one night in the Springhill Suites South Austin and it was an off weekend, so other than families traveling together, they were not busy at all. No South-By or some other monster conference so rates were around $120 a night.

The room was functional, with a couch and living area on one side and the bed and whirlpool tub on the other. The tub is not actually in the bathroom, but right at the foot of the bed. Kind of odd but nice for a romantic stay. I think we wound up with this room as we wanted a king bed. The tub was pretty comfy. The bathroom has a separate shower. The TV is awkwardly placed on a dresser between the two parts of the room, so you can turn it to face the couch or the bed.

They do have free wifi and free breakfast. The breakfast area definitely gets crowded so go down early.

Location is south Austin right on the interstate and Ben White. It's a quick drive to the airport but not so quick to downtown if you drive between 8:00 and 10:00am. Austin traffic on I-35 is a nightmare. If you stay here and need to get downtown during rush hour get on Ben White (71) west and go north on South Congress or 1st street.
