The price for this hotel is originally around the $130 price range per night and is given a three star rating. Everything is so basic. You have to ask the front desk for the essentials, e.g. Hair dryer..etc. I went to the front desk and asked for a blow dryer, I waited about 8 min. and got one, I didn't... More

In Austin for conference @ Radisson, my stay booked from Wednesday 8/3/16 thru Saturday 8/6/16. Ended up checking out around 8am. I must say that this Extended Stay was clean, everything worked in room and the Staff was over the top friendly & helpful! Customer service-mainly Jesse-was a 10+! Super helpful and made me feel like I was at home... More

We selected this hotel for a mid-length stay for a family member due to its great location. Sadly, the room was mediocre at best, and the service even worse. The "kitchen" was stocked with a laughable collection of dingy, crusted dishes of various types, almost as if someone had scoured local garage sales to outfit the hotel. Many of the... More

Good place, good location. Just that the change in the way they keep cooking utensils and dishes at reception, available on demand, should be communicated at the time of check-in. Other than this, it was a pleasant stay.

We stayed in about 15 ESA all across the US and this was by far the best. Clean and spacious apartments with comfortable bed and useful kitchenettes.

We booked 2 rooms, because there were 5 of us visiting. The rooms were dirty. Halls were also dirty. I could go on and on, but honestly, we tried to get a different hotel after the first night and everything was sold out. If there were not 5 of us maybe we could have got out of there.I do not...

Very simple suite with small kitchen served it's purpose, but was not in downtown. This is across the "bat" bridge from downtown but within walking distance. My room was never cleaned for the 5 nights that I was there and I had to ask for dishes and utensils. They provide coffee and prepackaged muffins and granola bars for breakfast. I... More

I've stayed at this location a number of times. It is always a good value and a great location. If you want to head Downtown or head South to enjoy SE Austin, this is a great location. I also put my parents up at this location a few times.

Great Location, daytime staff were wonderful. Room was not clean, night time staff were non existent; zero service after hours. Within walking distance to a variety of food trucks and restaurants and Lyft rides to East 6th street were available and around $5-$7.

Clean and comfortable enough but far from spic and span. Kitchen items (including coffee pot) need to be requested from the front desk. "Breakfast" is granola bars and packets of instant oatmeal. Very convenient to River, parks, restaurants and downtown.
