First of all don't listen to the complaining. This hotel was our 4th hotel in 8 days as we are touring Texas. It may be slightly dated but that's ok, it gives it a little charm. The suites are big with full kitchen, living room and the bedroom is also spacious. Cannot find one complaint with this hotel. Very friendly...

Stayed at the Habitat Suites on a first time visit to Austin for a wedding. I think that this place is the best value of any hotels we have ever stayed. So much to say about the Habitat Suites that I don't know where to begin. 1. Location: Right off of I35 about 6 miles from the city center. Depending...

Found this searching for reasonable space to stay for an Austin wedding. Wife thought she would need space to do wedding flowers. Kept it when we discovered we did not. Repurposed apartments into suites. Decent meat free breakfast and evening snacks. Happy hour through the week. Plenty of space for a hotel. Would have been tight for apartments. While not...

Don't stay here unless you do not mid a dirty room. When we first checked in we had to change rooms because there was hair and red stuff on the bathroom wall. The wall plugs would not charge our phones. The only thing that was good was the hospitality breakfast and wine and cheese in the evenings.

Not sure why we paid so much for this "hotel", which reminded me more of a hostel. Yellow appliances, dingy carpet, peeling paint, 20 year old furniture...very strange. I do not get it. All I can say good is that there were yummy complimentary refreshments during happy hour. There are many hotels to choose from in Austin, TX for the...

The place was old but well-kept. They were upgrading some rooms when we were there. For a price of a hotel room, you get a suite with a kitchenette, 1 bedroom and living room with a fireplace. A decent size for the prize. However, the kitchen badly needed an update. The coil-type stovetop in our room can barely heat water....

This place used to be an apartment complex so the suites, are really suites. With separate bedrooms, living room and small kitchen with full size fridge, stove etc. The rooms are clean. You can tell they are not new but everything is well maintained. Breakfast is really very nice. Unlike most complimentary breakfasts they offer to custom make eggs, etc....
