We stayed 2 nights the weekend after easter. It didnt feel too busy but certainly was not empty. We didnt arrive until after 6pm Friday and went out to Bastrop for a late dinner celebration that night and had to go in to Austin for an errand the next morning. So not a whole lot of time to hang out at the hotel. Best asset of this hotel would have to be the helpful and friendly staff. Check in was quick, and our stuff was brought up quickly by a nice gentleman who showed us room amenities and got us ice. Our room was nice spacious and clean with balcony. Also liked the extra counter and mirror across from the bathroom as it allows you to continue getting dressed even if the bathroom is occupied. Bed was comfortable. The in-room wifi was free for the duration of our stay. Our room was near the main lobby so location is very convenient. The room rate is high and so is the breakfast price. Saturday afternoon after our errand and lunch in Austin, we returned and did get to hike the trails and ride the bike. Plus enjoyed the cool breeze on our balcony. Its nice that there is an in-room fridge to keep our drnks cold. Our teens and friends had their own rooms next door to ours and did their own thing, allowing us parents to enjoy quiet relaxing time alone. Our teens used the pool and the bike we think. They also did the 6pm sunset float and said it wasnt worth the $50 per person. This was difficult to set up in the first place because we called in march hoping to ensure that we could get spots for the 6 teens. But we were told to call back the week before as they were too busy to be taking reservations for April ....really now, are we getting this fir free or what !!! Everyone loved the firepit and the smores; the weather was perfect for it. Overall a nice stay. We agree with another reviewer that said the exterior of the hotel reminds them of a large apartment complex and might we add, from the 80s. It certainly isnt an architectural beauty, but the main lobby and our room were nicely designed.
