“Clean but lacking in service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

The rooms are clean however you are not allowed to take breakfast to your room. I saw the 3+ signs posted on the 15ft counter top but tried it anyway, i was immediately stopped at the elevator. Keep in mind I was trying to take a banana and a yogurt to my husband with a broken hand and my 8month old. Even after explaining this i was told "no its not allowed". It's not like I was packing sticky waffles to smear on the carpet. Not exactly the "making you feel comfortable or home away from home" vibe.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

This seems to be a newer property. We stayed in a spacious suite with a king bed, flat screen tv, and living room area. The bathroom was about a foot too small, but it was clean, not only looked clean but smelled clean. The staff was friendly and accommodating. (Thank you PAT!) As far as price, I am used to spending $85 - $150 a night, so felt that for what we got it was well worth $125. There was no traffic noise and the air conditioner froze us out, which was great because it was 102 degrees outside and we had been out in the heat all afternoon.

Stayed for one night only as no other hotels were available around but found it to be a bit pricy. Location was convenient as we had to head to Austin.
The room was neat and clean room but the bathroom (shower area) very small. The bedsheets had old stains and the a/c was making noise. Not much variety for breakfast but the staff was friendly and helpful.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We were here for 2 nights for a wedding. The room was clean & comfortable. We noticed that the lobby bathrooms had signs on them "out of order", so that made it difficult if you needed to use the facilities and the one in your room was tied up. They remained "out of Order" the entire time we were there! Also, they were having trouble keeping up with the breakfast items on Sunday morning. The staff wasn't the friendliest, and that was glaring with the multiple signs posted about not taking your breakfast items to your room. If they are going to make that rule, then the breakfast lobby needs to be expanded. We had a large group, coming and going, and we were squeezed around the limited number of tables.

Hotel was nice and clean. It looks just like the pictures, nice and new. If you have a do not disturb sign on your door during the day. The cleaning staff will not knock which is important since I work nights.

We stayed 2 nights and the rooms were excellent. The beds(Queen) were really comfortable. The breakfast that was served in the mornngs had a nice variety to choose from. In walking distance to a lot of places if you didn't want to drive.
