Rooms were not that bad (they were clean). Then you turn to left where the bathroom area is. The sink took up most of the space. No room to place bathroom necessities. The shower area was ok except for the part that I had to keep pushing the shower curtain back so water wasn't coming out into floor. (that looked... More

Honestly we chose this hotel due to a limited amount of rooms in Austin during Labor Day weekend. The price was decent and overall the rooms were as well. They definitely attempted to make it Plus+. However, we will likely not choose to stay here again. Few turnoffs include the unventilated elevators, dampness and associated smell, AC vents with continuous... More

The check-in process was smooth. The computer system was acting funky when it charged my credit card, but the Sam the desk clerk was very professional and never lost his cool. He definitely was handling any customer concerns with the utmost respect and he definitely acted like a manager. The other employees, even housekeeping were amazing, polite, and hardworking. I...

Rooms have been updated a bit--yes. The Plus stops there. Plus what? There is no breakfast (free or otherwise), the check-in was painstakingly slow, and a piddly $1.50 fee is added automatically to every room for the use of the safe. To have the fee removed, you must WAIT to ask for it to be taken off your bill at... More

The room was clean and the staff was helpful, but the smell of weed on our floor was overpowering. Inside the hotel, I felt comfortable, but I would not leave by myself. They do have round the clock security (who were also very nice). Not for families.

We were in Austin for a concert out on 360 so we needed a place to stay over night that was modest in price. We found this one and it was just ok. The room was clean and basic, no frills, our view was another wing of the hotel. If you just want a basic over night stay that is... More

The room is musty, the bed (despite being made) is completely wrinkled -- as if someone didn't make it for months then came in and just folded the old sheets on the bed to make it look as if they were clean. There's a plastic bag over the smoke/carbon monoxide detector which is a fire and safety hazard. Hole where... More

I stay at a lot of Red Roof Inns all over the country because our company has a discount. There is a lot of variation among the franchises - maybe too much. This was the first time I tried a Plus+ hotel. First, Austin traffic is freekin' awful. Don't go there unless you have to! The desk clerk told me... More
