I'm an optimistic traveler and it doesn't take much to make me happy so I will try to put the most positive spin on this review. First, some 'feedback"... this is a "motel" style place and you enter your room from the outside. The look of the place is really dismal. The view from our room was of giant puddles... More

My significant other is enlisted and has his monthly drill dates at Camp Mabry there in Austin and I love that I can accompany him on those weekends. That way I know he's sleeping comfortably and not on an army cot! That and I enjoy being able to go out with him in and around Austin after he gets off... More

Convenient location with great service and accommodations for the price. Very happy with our stay. Room was very clean. Beds were very comfortable, and I loved the plush towels. The breakfast was decent. The kids loved the Smuckers waffle toasters.

The rooms were clean. the pool seemed to not have been kept up. The water was cloudy and very warm, too warm for a swimming pool, although the out side temperature was very hot and that could have been a factor.

Our stay at La Quinta Inn and Suites was pretty good while in Texas. While it is not the Hilton, the rooms were clean, the beds super comfortable, and the staff were friendly. A small free breakfast is offered daily too.

This was one of the worst La Quinta Inns I have stayed at. The furniture had stains on them, no bags in the trash cans, no coffee for me to make in my room. There were cracks on the wall. I've been to better La Quinta Inns and expected a lot better when i arrived here. there are other La... More

Great view of the highway, with industrial area surrounding. University is several miles away so not exactly "in" the University area. Being on the I-35 service road you have to drive a several mile circle in order to get anything. Even a "quick trip to Walgreens" or fast food involves driving a few miles down, crossing the interstate, coming back... More

This place should be torn down or at least completely renovated. It is an old worn out place that is charging way too much and delivering little. Grounds are very dirty and parking lot has huge holes. Staff is great, but they can't overcome the problems. Same breakfast everyday for 4 days without any variety... really!

The rates were high for some odd reason on this weekend. The building is old and the rooms had cracks in the ceiling. The bath tub was high up not good for older people. Room was far from the parking lot and the room was on the second floor they claim that's all that was available. Plain and simple the... More
