“Clean & Good Service For A Budget Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

I was looking for a convenient place to stay overnight in Austin and this hotel got very good reviews on tripadvisor. Easy to find, plenty of free parking and a very friendly greeting and easy check-in from the staff when I arrived. Very storefront looking lobby, but I didn't spend much time there. Room was nice for a budget hotel. Everything was clean. It even had a robe in the closet for guest use. A/C worked fine and was not noisy. Walls were a little thin and I heard plenty of other guests bumping and clunking around. The bed was a bit firm, but I slept OK. Breakfast was good with plenty of the usual choices. Overall, not a bad place for a couple of nights if you're watching the budget but still want a decent place.

Room Tip: I would suggest top floor to cut down on the room noise from other guests.

This Super 8 has really gone the extra mile. Not only is it very clean, but the staff have added nice touches to the rooms like a laundry basket, a portable lap top desk, and a DVD player. The continental breakfast was very well done, there was plenty of food and even a cappuccino machine.

We were simply looking for an overnight stay near the airport where we could leave our car during our vacation trip but were amazed at the incredible customer service both before and when we arrived around 10 pm. Prior to our stay we received a call wanting to know our arrival date so they could have the room ready for us. When we arrived, knowing that we had arranged long term parking, asked what time our flight was leaving so they could have the shuttle ready to go - at 4:45 am! Our room was located just down the hall and the air-conditioning was already set at a comfortable temperature with a nice welcome basket of water and snacks waiting on the desk. The next morning was flawless - we left the hotel on time with room to spare at the airport! When we arrived back to Austin 5 days later, we simply called the hotel and the shuttle was waiting for us when we walked out from baggage claim. We will definitely stay here again and can't say enough about the incredible customer service!

Room Tip: We had a room on the first floor near the end of the hall - great for us since we were leaving early...

I don't usually stay at super 8s but with the price and location it was hard to turn down. I am 25 and I went with another friend my age in order to enjoy food trucks and party on 6th street. We wanted to be close to downtown as well as feel safe. The hotel was about 10 minutes from downtown no taxi needed whatsoever. The hotel was clean, smelled nice an had a great front desk staff. I recommended it 1000%. The little details such as robes, and clothes hampers made us feel at home. Also, being right next to a 24 hour jack in the box and gas station helped a lot for our late night cravings after hanging out all night.

I stayed here from 7/18-7/19, it was a last minute trip to pick up my child. I called the hotel to ask where to pick up their free shuttle service. They send someone to get you when you call that you are at the airport which is great.

I arrived into austin early and they allowed me to check in early since my room was ready. I booked the two queen beds room. I had a microwave, mini fridge,two very nice and comfortable queen beds,[LOOOOVED the beds, im picky but these were very comfortable!} a desk area with chair and another chair with an ottoman.

I had a nice flat screen lcd tv, i believe it was 32 inch. AC could be controlled to your liking, as it cooled the room very quick{I was in rm 301}.

It is a small place, very quiet, which i like and very clean. Everything looks very well maintained. They had DVD's you could rent for a $1.00, books you could borrow as well. Free Coffee 24 hrs in the lobby.

Be warned that this is NOT near anything, its literally right off HWY 71 but it is VERY CLOSE to the airport and downtown austin. If you want a clean, quiet, decent place to stay, this is it. The free shuttle to and from the airport is a HUGE plus.

There is a Jack in the BOX fast food literally right next door, a wendys across on the other side of the highway. There is a valero gas station/store down the block from the hotel.

There is a walmart not too far from there as well if you have a car OR take a taxi. Its about 2 miles or so but I definitely wouldn't walk this.

Breakfast was good enough for me, they had cereal, bacon and eggs, waffles, toast, muffins, sausage on biscuits, juice, starbucks coffee and other things. For me and my 10 yr old, it was more than enough.

I was more than happy here and would recommend it, saw lots of parents with kids here, they have a family suite too.

The room was spacious and reasonably clean. The free wifi was fantastic. The staff was super helpful when anything went wrong (e.g. when we got locked out of our own room; when the washing machine appeared out of order). One issue for us was that the water softener made hand washing and showering kind of weird, but this is just personal preference.

This is the place to stay for a bargain. If you care about location or want something with more Austin quirkiness, stay on South Congress. That being said, I'd

Great place. We stayed 3 nights. The bed was comfortable. There were a variety of pillows on the bed to choose from (I used all, of them LOL). The AC worked very well. Plenty of towels. Snacks and coffee in room. Nice flat screen tv. Kind staff members. So glad we stayed here. This will be "our" hotel in Austin from now on.
