“Filthy and very unsafe hotel.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Room smelled strongly of cigarette smoke. Bed was filthy with hair. Shower curtain had dirty stains on it. They missed my wake up call. Prostitutes and suspicious people walking the parking lot at night. They charged me a state government rate of $42 when they were advertising a $39 rate.

Room Tip: Do not stay here.

First of all, this place is a b*tch to actually get to. There's a closed-down restaurant in front. The front desk staff were completely indifferent. THE ROOM> oh my goodness: smell, holes in the walls, smoke detector torn off and sitting on the TV, toilet paper stuffed into all the holes in the walls, bedding old and scratchy. All in all we had a great time in Austin, and didn't spend much time in this hole anyway. And you can't beat the price.

This was definitely the worst Red Roof I have ever stayed at. As far as that's concerned it was the worst hotel! I should have known when we drove up and there was a security guard in the parking lot. That should have been a dead give away. The elevators and grounds were filthy!!! They definitely need to invest in a "power washer" and clean this property as it does NOT represent the Red Roof properties I have stayed in corporately all over. The night staff greets you behid bullet proof glass, however during the day it is different. Besides being dirty, the prices offered had "a catch." If you stayed so many days in a row (3) and did NOT stay over a weekend, you got the cheaper rate that is advertised. If not, the rate was higher. I wonder if the corporate office of Red Roof know that this is how they do business. This was our fist and last time staying here for sure. As a redicard member we asked for water and the front desk clerk said SORRY, you got a bottle last night! In closing, both the rooms, the grounds, and the entire property need to undergoing major cleaning and renovation for sure!!!

Room Tip: Do not stay here!!

The room was comfortable and clean. There is some renovation going on when we were there but the pool was open. Address provided can be confusing, using the gps. Calling the hotel number will be helpful. No breakfast but lots of shops around for food.

If you're not expecting a Hilton, and just want the basics; it would be hard to beat the value. Considering it is one of the lowest priced hotels you can find, I have no complaint. Sure; no fancy brunch set-up in the mornings, but that's not their deal. You get a room that's always cleaned, professional staff, a continual supply of fresh coffee in the lobby, and a pool to boot! Currently undergoing a paced & methodical overhaul, on one hand they have some gaps in things like refrigerators or hangers in the rooms, but on the other hand this place will only get better. Professionally run with plenty of lighting, cameras and a security guard making rounds at night to insure your car is safe, and special kudos to Matt, who is always cheerful and takes care of business, ensuring that your stay goes without hitches. Just watch the driveway entrance as it's a bit hidden. After that, it's a breeze.

Room Tip: If you're not use to freeway noise, ask for a room facing West; a mostly vacant lot. They have...

Service was great, no complaints at all. We were greeted right when we walked into the lobby. Room Was ok, we were not there very long. The pool area looked good but we did not use it. we would stay there again if we go to austin again.
