We stay each time we are visiting UT at the La Quinta University Area. It is much cheaper than other La Quintas in the Austin area, and it is amazingly close to the campus. We have been staying there for over 20 years, and if our granddaughter attends UT, then we will stay there many more times.

This hotel is located in a crime ridden area of Austin, Texas. I noted a security guard that patrolled the property during my stay there. Due to this, there must be criminally activity occurring on the property. The property looked dirty & old. Was concerned that my vehicle might be broken into. Just "don't stay there" if you can help...

I ran the hot water in the sink for almost TEN minutes but it never got hot. The shower right next to the sink had plenty of hot water but not in the sink. How does that happen? Also, this hotel is located almost under the freeway.

Someone knocked our door at 1:00 and he asked to open the door for parking ticket. We were afraid a lot. I did not open the door and he walked away after 5 minutes later. My wife and me woke up and afraid a lot. I am so unpleased.

I did not take advantage of the complimentary breakfast. It would have been nice to be able to make my own waffles using batter that's ready made by the staff or scrambled eggs. There was no protein for breakfast; just a lot of carbs. I liked that there was fruit and muffins that I could take on the go since...

Great Location -- state highway 2222 is a beautiful road; the motel is directly located on a crossroad between Houston/Austin and Dallas/SanAntonio, so I find it an excellent place to stay. Good Price

The staff was simply the best. Very nice and helpful. The room was clean. And it was stocked with everything that we needed. The beds were comfortable as well. A big plus is that the area felt safe and there was not much, if any, outside loud noises or disturbances.

Good location for North Central Austin, pet friendly, but disappointments: ice machines were not filled, no inroom microwave or fridge, only warm water, TV volume too low. Staff was very friendly and attentive.

Needs to close down and do an entire remodel. Floors, walls, doors, key locks, etc.. everything is old, dingy and depressing. I stay in La Quinta properties frequently and this is by far the worse one in the chain that I have stayed in.
