Recently stayed here for 5 nights. Pros: Very economical price, especially on weekdays. I was able to walk to Austin Convention center in 45 minutes from here using Red River street. Friendly front desk even though I checked in late at night. The room had microwave, fridge, a coffee maker, and free and fast wifi. Room was clean and good...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
