You'd only stay here to save money, and you wouldn't bring anyone here for a spot of romance. The decor in my room was vastly less light & bright than on their official room photo; but the king-size bed was comfortable, the bathroom was clean, the phone worked, and the staff on reception, both at night and next morning, were...

My staff and I totally appreciate your review! Thanks so much for your feedback. We do have differing decors in our rooms right now as we are under renovation. As soon as we are finished, I'll be posting pictures of our new rooms. It's truly an exciting time for us. Come see us next time you are in the area.... More

The room was comfortable enough, but they could have gotten rid of the faint smell of cigarettes from when it used to be a smoking room. Also, I hate when I turn on a TV and Fox News is on. The walls are super thin. Breakfast was good and the staff was mostly friendly.

Certainly isn't best hotel...outside appearance is bad. Room was sufficient but AC did not work great so was warm and humid all night.

We greatly appreciate your review. I regret we weren't able to WOW you during your stay and show you why we are the "Best Value Under the Sun." I will definitely look into the AC in the room and make necessary repairs so other guests will not have the same experience. Thank you for letting us know about it. We... More

Very noisy, moldy-smelling room with dirty carpet. Indifferent staff. Very stressful stay. Very expensive typical of downtown Austin. I'd never stay here again. There are way better and cheaper places that don't sit right under the freeway. You are literally under an elevated freeway here and the noise is not to be believed.

Thank you so much for your review. We truly appreciate your feedback. Please let me apologize for our not "WOWing" you with our service. That is totally not our norm. The noise level from the freeway is one of our common issues we hear from guests, and your review gives me a few ideas to try to remedy that (maybe... More

Nothing fancy, but the rooms are clean and updated, the beds are comfortable, and the price is reasonable - especially for the location, which is an easy walk of just a few blocks to the eastern side of UT. It is adjacent to I-35 so I imagine it could be a bit noisy depending the room, but mine (towards rear... More

I has a class at the UT in Austin. The hotel is close and very affordable, vs the other hotels in the area. Clean, it has what you need to spend a couple of nights in the city, no frills. A 24 hours cafe next door is very handy and convenient. Do not expect anything fancy. People at the front... More

The hotel is located just 2 miles away from the very center of Austin, yet a bit close to the highway (convenient for transport but a bit noisy sometimes). People at the reception are nice and helpful, that's clearly a strong point of this hotel! Rooms are not very big and bathroom/tub looks a bit old, but that remains a... More
