This hotel is awesome for a couple of reasons. First I'll start off with the breakfast, since that is by far the most noteworthy part of this place. They had free AWESOME breakfast, made to order, with a variety of choices to order from. They also had a "buffet" style area with other delicious options. The other part I liked... More

If you're looking for a place in Austin outside of the city but easy on/off highway (15 mins to downtown) this is it. Room was clean, comfortable and affordable. Extremely friendly and accommodating staff. Nice pool...Rate includes full breakfast--made to order + buffet, and daily free happy hour--beer and wine with light but tasty snacks. Very clean and quiet well... More

Stayed one night during the week. Pros: -Cost effective! Only $100/night for a suite with a hide-a-bed, full kitchen, etc! -Eco-friendly! Organic coffee, tea, condiments, mattress, hand soap. -Complimentary evening reception with wine, beer, (limit 3) and appetizers! -Complimentary vegetarian, local breakfast, cooked fresh to order, plus the usual suspects for continental breakfast. -Courtyard garden has fruit trees- kinda neat!...

The staff was top notch, especially the breakfast team. Breakfast was superb, good variety and healthy choices abounded. The saltwater pool was good. This renovated old apartment complex does not offer luxury, but it does work. One issue is the location--an oasis amid a vacated shopping mall and a less than upscale part of town. Nonetheless, we felt safe and... More

The location is not convenient to anything. It is hard to find and harder to even find the entrance once you are there. It does not look like a hotel. There is nothing at all, even a shop or restaurant that you might want to go to that is within walking distance. My daughter and I came back around 8... More

This hotel is very quiet even though I35 is close! This house takes care of the environment! They recycle! Our room had a kitchen and a separate bedroom! It was very clean and the bed was perfect for my back! The employees at the front desk were very nice and professional, just to name out a few, Latoya and Katie!... More

There were four of us in our party, and I was a little shocked at the prices of Austin hotels that could accommodate all of us in one room; thus I was a little suspicious of a place like this that was so reasonably priced and "green themed." But a pleasant surprised it turned out to be after all, if... More

This place definitely has it's ups and downs. The good things definitely were: The staff was great, breakfast was super yummy, no issues with noise, the happy hour was nice, the grounds were pretty, and the lobby of the place was nice. The bad: - Location. This place is located right off the highway which is nice, but it's not... More

The only thing worth 4 stars was the breakfast. Our room had mold on the bathtub wall. The bathroom door was to close to the toilet. When shutting or opening the door you had to shove it past the toilet. The faucet on the bathtub dripped constantly. There was no way to turn it off. There was a guard patrolling... More

This was out first stop on our honeymoon, travelling through 3 states in the US. It was a great relief to arrive somewhere so lovely, especially after a long plane journey! Granted, the area surrounding this hotel is a little sparse, owing to the fact that it is a little way out of the centre of Austin, but the hotel... More
