“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The hotel staff was very helpful in giving directions & printing maps to restaurants, Walmart, etc. The breakfast was fantastic....a chef cooked it right there...and free. I liked the heated swimming pool, and sitting area in the large atrium. There are 2 atriums, and since I was there in Oct, and didn't expect noisy kids, I requested to be by the pool. It was very quiet. The room with 1 king size bed was very large...has fridge & microwave. Bed was very comfortable. I certainly will stay there on my next trip to Austin.

This was a very basic hotel experience for a slightly higher than basic price (due to the football game that weekend I assume). The decor was outdated and there is a hint of cigarette smell everywhere. Not enough that I could smell, but my girlfriend could, which is probably worse for me. The breakfast was better than I would expect from the appearance of the hotel. The showers were small even though the bathroom was large. This place is certainly clean enough and safe enough to stay, but if you are looking for something nice, this isn't it.

This hotel is outdated, dirty, just down right scary.. Not trying to be mean but really...cement walls, outdated bedding, furniture etc. Someone should put a little cash into this place. Beds are tiny..pillows are mini (not a standard in fact looks like a quarter pillow). Second bad expensive with a Best Western and I cannot tell you there will not be a third. Staff was nice. I feel sorry for them to work in such a outdated scary place.

Room Tip: Don't stay here. plain and simple. The owner must be cheap to continuie on without spending some...

I found this hotel about a year ago and ever since then I couldn't imagine staying at another hotel. The price is very good, the rooms are clean, very friendly staff, and not to far away from downtown, the capitol, and 6th street. But best part about the hotel is definitely the breakfast! This is the best breakfast I've ever had while staying at a hotel, it's even better than the fine dining food at the more expensive hotels. And it's just one guy cooking everything. He cooks the eggs with real eggs! No powder. He cooks the bacon, the biscuits and gravy. He even sets up the entire dining area by himself. And he is so prideful of what he does and lets you know it too. No matter how busy he is he still finds a way to make conversation with you. Definitely stay here. This is my hotel from here out whenever I'm in Austin.

The desk clerk that was on duty could use some additional hospitality training. He was rude and less than helpful when we checked in and found that our guest room door would not lock properly. I have stayed at this hotel several times over the last decade and until my last stay, I considered it a home away from home. I am now thinking of looking for another hotel when I stay in Austin. My wife almost fell down because the mat was coming up in the tub. We mentioned this to the clerk during checkout and he was less than concerned. He only offered a half-hearted apology.
