Very convenient location for long projects in 78745 and 78704 zip codes. Well-lit and easy to get someone to help you. Nice bathrooms with long vanities, sufficient counter space in kitchenettes, and even sufficient space in bedroom area to lay things out to dry. Recently updated (flat screens, feather pillows and mattress toppers, and free wifi). Only things I'd like to see more of are luggage carts.

Perfectly located to many South Austin locales and very near access to highways, close to shopping. Upon arrival, we were met with friendliness and knowledge of the area and hotel. We will stay here again and again.

The hotel is great once you get there. Even with a gps, google map app, and a yahoo map print out, we drove past it three times before we found the entrance. We could see the sign, but couldn't find the road. While we were waiting at the front desk, several people made the same complaint, and the desk clerk took two phone calls of people trying to locate the hotel. However, the rooms are very new, clean and comfortable. Now that we know how to get there, we would probably stay there again.

3 week + stay. Hard to find. Comfortable, quiet (@ least @ night when remodeling wasn't going on. Old-fashioned, but undergoing modernization. Front desk & handyman friendly, BUT--despite repeated complaints--apparently did nothing about repeated cockroaches, probably coming from sink & bathtub drains (also reported). Everything fine, but roaches will probably keep me from coming back. Too bad.

Room Tip: Choose a room without COCKROACHES!

Blair - Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at our hotel. Given our company's commitment to superior guest satisfaction, I was disheartened to read that your stay wasn't 100% satisfactory. Please understand how truly sorry I am.

The staff and I strive to provide friendly service, clean rooms and comfortable surroundings; it is incredibly rewarding to know that we were able to provide this for you. I will be sure to share your comments with the Front Desk team, and let them know that they were a part of what your stay with us so great.

I do want to apologize for the state of your room. We do work hard to ensure all rooms are clean, with housekeeping doing upkeep every 7-days during a guests stay, and in between upon guest request for a minimal fee, and after a guest checks out. As well, they walk the property daily, removing and cleaning items as needed. With this in mind, it is disheartening to hear that we did not meet your expectations.

In order to meet our standards going forward, I will work with my staff to ensure that you and our future guests do not experience this type of incident.

Again, I am deeply sorry that you did not have a completely enjoyable stay at our hotel, and I promise that we are focused on total guest satisfaction every day. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me at this hotel or to our guest relations team directly by visiting our website and clicking the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page. I do hope that you will let me demonstrate our redoubled efforts in the future here or at any of our other locations throughout the U.S. and in Canada.

While a real tough place to find (not on Google Earth or Navteq)......staff are very kind and make your stay easy if you are long on travel and short on patience.

Had a tough time during my month stay as they had painting carpeting flooring and all remodel work going on through the month I stayed there.

It is a rather Isolated location with no walking or pool and is essentially on an urban island below one of the largest mix master's in the lower 48.

That being said .....if you need a fairly nice place to stay with a really new room and express kitchen set up......then this is a good buy.

Room Tip: All rooms are remodeled.......some have flat screen tv's and some don't .....so ask

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at our hotel. We are committed to providing every guest with outstanding accommodations and friendly service, so I was pleased to read your remarks about your room and our staff. Of course, I was disheartened to read that your stay wasn't 100% satisfactory. For that I am truly sorry.

Please know that we strive to provide our guests with a relaxing home away from home experience. We do have systems in place to ensure that outside noise doesn't interfere with a guest's stay. Additionally, our hotels are constructed in such a way as to mitigate the noise from outside disturbances. In the event that you are disturbed by an outside event while in your room, a call to the front desk usually ensures a rapid resolution. In your case, we recognize that we failed to operate according to our standard practices, which caused the disturbance to last longer that it should have.

Please don't hesitate to reach out to me at this hotel or to our guest relations team directly by visiting our website and clicking the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page. I do hope that you will join us again, when the improvements are complete, to see our redoubled efforts.
