I was scheduled to stay at the hotel for 3 nights this past weekend during the Notre Dame-Texas game. I had put down 2 separate reservations (one for Sat & Sun nights and made a separate one for Mon night a few weeks later). I arrived to check in at around 9:30pm on Saturday night and was told upon arrival... More

Even when the attendants are nice people, the place is really bad. I was one night and i found a room odor really strange; i wake up felt strange by this stinky place. I dont recommend for couples nor families neither. Only men alone or men friends looking for the cheapest place.

Good service. Excellent price for the location. One of the best deals in Austin. Friendly service. The breakfast is great, I especially like the Texas waffles. When I stay in Austin, I stay here several times a month due to location and price. The property is very safe and recently painted. Microwave and fridge in my room was an unexpected... More

We arrived at the hotel around 1 am, checked in and went to our hotel room to sleep. Around 4 am we heard someone trying to open our door. We thought someone was drunk and maybe they had the wrong door. This guest went to get the manager (the same one that checked us in a few hours before) and... More

We stayed in May and the outside of the hotel is nothing like the pictures is like 20 different colors it's ghetto looking. Some people at the front desk are less than pleasant. We had an extended stay due to unforeseen issues on our part. When we checked out the manager was beyond rude.

We stayed at the Rodeway Inn for one night during the week. The staff was very courteous, the room was clean and there were amenities like free breakfast, free Wi-Fi, and a coffee machine and iron in the room. For the money, it was a good deal. Also, the Inn is on the edge of campus and bus stops, so... More

Arrived with my friends after a long day of travel. As we are from another country we were using travel money cards - our cards were not accepted by the receptionist because they don't have our names on them (no travel cards have names on them for privacy and security). This has never been a problem at any other hotel... More

Good things about this place: - satisfying breakfast - staff are friendly and helpful - near the university - lots of interesting restaurants nearby - wifi works alright My complaints are that the bed was uncomfortable -- there seemed to be insects in the bed, the bedding wasn't clean, the bathroom was rundown. I did come in during a football... More

While I will say that every staff member we encountered was very polite and helpful, and the wifi was free and speedy, the condition of the hotel and the location was pretty awful. We had a corner room that had a large wet puddle in front of the door, reasons unknown, the entire 5 days we were there. Every morning... More

For the price it's okay. Personally I wouldn't return but for cheap and easy access to Frank Erwin Center it's okay. Had to wait for the room to be cleaned when it should of been done upon arrival. Smoke free room that smelt like someone had been smoking in it how strong the smell was. AC was leaking water onto... More
