3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Traveled on business to this hotel recently. Sweet Texas shaped waffles at the continental breakfast were adorable. Beds EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE. Bathroom & Shower could use updating, but working and this is enough. Not sure I'd stay here again without a vehicle (wooo, some long walks were had by all) but it is walking distance to a starbucks. The pool was nice and the plantings on the facility were quite lovely. Irked that when we asked for more towels the front desk staff was not accomodating and sort of gave us the brush-off. I know they were booked to capacity for southby (sxsw) but it seems to me that for $250 a night (or whatever) if I ask for something, you should be willing to provide it.

The staff was friendly and helpful and location quite convenient. However, the rooms are substandard and the clientele quite shady. If it weren't for my girlfriend's corporate discount, we would stay elsewhere.

We couldn't be more satisfied with the accomadations for both us and our pet. Outside doesn't look that great, but it is what is inside that counts. The staff was very accommadating and friendly. Don't judge a book by it's cover. There is not much to do about age and location, but they do make the most of it.

My friends and I enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It's conveniently located near the bars on 6th street and easy to find. The rooms were clean, and the beds were comfortable. We ate waffles and cereal at the continental breakfast. My friend accidentally left brand new clothes and a purse inside the closet when we checked out. I called later that afternoon to check to see if the staff had them, and they separated our bags for us to pick up whenever we went back to Austin. They were so nice! Definitely recommend this hotel!

I have stayed here before, and despite some renovations, it's still a dump. We stayed in an "updated" room, but that seemed to mean new carpet and television, but little else. It's too bad, as it has a great location and potential. Poor linens (stains), towels (thin), etc. Just feels dirty. Staff also needs to be upgraded. Disheveled. Grounds not up to par. Breakfast area is terrible and food choices are not good. My wife said that we would never stay here again.
