My family and I are visiting Austin at the end of March and we plan on being there for about 12 days to explore the area. We need an affordable place that can accommodate 6or 7 people. This is our first time coming to Austin, so I just don't know the area, but if we like the area we may move. I need a safe place, that has a good location, preferably close to downtown and reasonably priced. I've even tried to rent a house, but everything seems to be unavailable. Can someone make some suggestions for budget hotels and suites, or vacation rentals?Hawthorn Suites by the airport seems nice , but I don't know if it will be too far from the attractions. I would really prefer a suite or house. Most hotels downtown are really expensive. I'd stay at a Red Roof Inn or some budget place like that if I knew that it was not a dump. Someone please help me find a place to stay by making some suggestions!
