Wonderful customer service and sleeping accommodations for my wife and I. They really mad me feel like I was family, here. The general manager was a really nice woman that went out of her way to make sure that we were treated well. I thought it was just because of my good looks, but her and her staff were like... More

Was here for High School State Finals. Good Hotel! Close to UT Softball Field. Would stay again. Breakfast was good. (pretty much the usual hotel breakfast) Clean and quiet. My room was clean, no issues. Would definitely stay again. If we make it to State again, would definitely stay here again.

As others have reviewed and management has answered, the location of the homeless shelter and the lack of information on parking prior to getting there were quite frustrating. Getting to downtown was scary and I don't think I would have tried if I was alone. That being said, the rooms were clean, the breakfast was good, and the staff was... More

I found the price below average on the IHG website and I saw good reviews, so I decided to book a room. I was given a room just next to the construction area.

We stayed during graduation weekend for UT and had two rooms reserved. What we found was an updating process that was incomplete. The outside was mostly finished to resemble the Holiday Inn Express hotels and the lobby area was done but... When we arrived in the 4th floor hallway construction was still in progress. Fumes from the paint and other... More

This hotel has really friendly staff and their breakfast was pretty good. We loved this fact that it was located right along HWY 35 so it was easy to get to downtown Austin. You will also have several choices of resturants near this hotel.

I booked this place when we got reggaefest tickets. The other places listed on their website were $300-400. I got a king room with a pullout for $149. Then I read the reviews and got nervous.

I had no idea this property was under construction. The drive-up view is a mess - all kinds of debris. Even if they are updating the rooms, the space was much more worn than expected.
