“Wonderful, bargain hotel...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

The Super 8 Austin AIrport, South is a very nice hotel for the budget minded. I reserved two rooms for $76 per night through Priceline for each room for three nights and was extremely pleased with the condition of the hotel, the many amenities in each room, the wonderful helpfulness of the staff and, of course, the frugally low room prices.
The room amenities included hairdryer, coffeemaker, microwave, refrigerator, cable tv, free bottled water and snacks,and hi speed internet access (wifi too). The beds and pillows were comfortable and the shower was hot (minor complaint, the water is very, very soft - so you feel like you still have soap on you after you rinse off). The room I stayed in had two queen beds, desk, chair, lounge chair, nightstand and numerous lamps throughout the room. The furniture was done in an attractive cherrywood stain. My travel companion was very happy with the room she was in, as well.
The free buffet breakfast was pretty standard and the service was very good. When they ran out of food and I brought it to their attention they immediately resupplied the missing item. They also asked if there was anything further they could get me.
When I ran into a problem in the business office when trying to use their printer they immediately helped me with the problem and then checked back to make sure that everything was continuing to work well for me.
They are conveniently located one block south of Hwy 71 so you can get to anywhere in Austin pretty quickly. The closeness to the airport makes it an ideal location if you have to catch an early morning flight.
Also, non-smoking hotel - wonderful for those of us who can't stand the smell of smoke.
The folks running this hotel clearly care about making their customers happy. I highly recommend it.

SCAM ALERT - this property attempts to do a good job, but wait for the check out. You are automatically assessed a fee for a safe in your room whether or not you use it. The fee is in the small print in your check in that you initial. When I checked in, the clerk was going on and on about pets, free movies, breakfast, etc but surprisingly did not mention the safe fee. Yep, I initialed acceptance - stupid me. You are bombarded with requests to rate this property on TripAdvisor - too bad. This could have been a favorable report if the hotel was not so bent in SCAMMING people over small fees.

This is the first Super 8 hotel that gets a 10 on my stay. As soon as we arrived we were treated like we were special. We were given a on the 3rd floor, and since the hotel didn't seem too busy, I asked if any of the their special suites were available. (I had checked out this hotel online, and they had special suites with themes and hot tubs in the room.) We were accomodated and given the room upgrade. The room was huge! The king size bed was so comfortable and the pillows and sheets were top of the line. We had a flat screen tv with lots of cable movie channels. There were complimentary snacks and water, and we also had a dvd player in the room. In the lobby they had variety of dvd's you could check out to watch in the room. It was free! Also in the lobby was a Starbucks coffee machine, where you could get a fresh cup of coffee anytime of the day or night. They also had a massage chair available for the guests to use in the lobby. Our room had a hot tub, there were very dim colorful lights over the hot tub, which made for a romantic aviance. They had a complimentary hot breakfast, eggs, biscuits, bacon, sausage, waffles,lots to choose from. This stay was simply amazing, I would highly recommend this hotel. You have to see it to believe it.

Room Tip: Do some research on the internet and ask for one of the special rooms. They are worth the stay.

We stayed there one night on the last night New Years weekend. The room, as they designate it was a suite. It was of a nice size with a love seat, a giant television, microwave, small refrigerator, a 4 cup coffee maker even an in room notebook computer.

In the lobby, was an espresso machine and chocolate chip cookies available until 9:30pm. In the breakfast room was a coffee machine that would make several kinds of brews. I didn't pay much attention as I drink just regular coffee.

The hotel is maybe 10 minutes from downtown, very convenient for business and travel near major highways.

We were looking for a convient hotel to the airport and the Supper 8 had great reviews. We were not disappointed. I requested a rooom on the top floor (3rd floor) and since they didn't have one for my particular reservation (single king bed) they upgraded me for free to a small suite. Staff was very friendly and professional. I found the internet speed to be fine. The hotel is clean and quiet (no road or neighbor noise). The free breakfast has limited items but its fresh and adequate. Lastly, this is not your hotel if you plan to spend alot of time in downtown Austin but, if you plan to explore Austin and the surrounding areas, this is a great inexpensive hotel. Yes, it has free parking. Most of the downtown hotels will charge you $25-$27 per day to park.

We traveled from PA to TX to visit relatives. Spent two nights here as a result of Tripadvisor Reviews. Clean room, comfortable king bed, sufficient hot breakfast, nice service. Allowed us to check in early at 12:30. The room really had many little details that most hotels do not provide - such as a wash basket and a bathrobe and a bathroom scale. The bad points: Old, rear projector television had a really large screen but poor picture quality and limited channels. At the base of our bed, it really towered over us and would have been nice if it had good quality. It hurt our eyes. I guess that is why they offer free DVD loaners in the lobby. The coffee maker in the breakfast area grinds the beans before brewing the coffee, but it seemed too strong in flavor. Difficult to use. Other hotels usually have much better coffee setup and quality. We were not aware of any dessert bar. We stayed at five different hotels on our trip. This was in the mid range in overall quality but cost about 1/3 more than the other hotels we stayed at.
