“Completely unexpected FANTASTIC stay!!!”
Reviewed May 25, 2010

We were totally blown away by this hotel. We chose it because it was close to the Austin airport and we had an early morning flight - we had spent the previous 3-4 nights in a Hilton - and after one night at the Super 8 I would have preferred to stay here! Amazingly decorated room with so many small amenities that you wouldn't normally expect (a library of DVD's, a scale in the bathroom, a lap desk for working in bed, free dessert in the evening, I could go on and on...). The location isn't fantastic though Austin is quite small and it was only 10-15 minutes from downtown. I would absolutely recommend this hotel - we had a wonderful experience there!

Great breakfast every morning.... You need to try it if your ever in this area and need a place to stay... I highly recommend it..

We stayed here in March 2010. The hotel is easy to find. Not in a real busy or noisy area of town. We asked for a room in the back of the hotel so we didn't hear any road noise. You definitely need a car to get to places; there is nothing within walking distance. The hotel and our room were very clean. The beds comfortable (had a pillow top). The staff friendly. The breakfast was nice and I also liked having a computer available to use. The things that I really liked that aren't offered at most other hotels is the DVD player in the room, availability to borrow DVD movies from the front desk, the free cookies and cake every evening, and a little convenience store/room next to the front desk. The only thing I didn't like was having to prepay for the safe. I had to tell them when I checked out that I didn't use the safe and was credited for the safe charges. I only paid $60 a night. It was a great hotel to stay at for that price. I would even pay a little more to stay here again. I'd highly recommend it.

This Super 8 offers accommodations and service that exceed those offered at hotels branded with more upscale names. Decorations in common areas and furnishings in rooms will surprise you. Cleanliness and service will amaze you. Breakfast equals or surpasses those you will eat at more expensive chains (except for the curious absence of a pitcher of cold water).

You will have to drive to get to the tourist areas in town, but your ride to most of them will be in the 15 to 20 minute range on local streets, enabling you to avoid Austin's highway traffic.

Coffee is available all day long and you will have the opportunity to ruin your diet by snacking on cake or cookies in the evening.

The owners have clearly invested money, time and considerable effort in making this facility a show place.

I had never stayed at a Super 8 before but would stay here again. We spent several days here and enjoyed our stay. Rooms were clean and taken care of. Lots of nice little touches in the room. Hotel personel were very pleasant. We found it thru this site and were not disapointed. You do need a car for this location. It is about 10 minutes from downtown Austin. They do a free breakfast in the morning and dessert/snacks in the afternoon. The pool is pretty small FYI if that is of interest.

The location was a little out of the way, but this was a very nice place. They must have gotten a special on flat screen tv's because they are everywhere! Breakfast not that great. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was very nice with comfortable bed. 6 pillows on the bed, granite in the bathroom, large flat screen tv. Location makes it possible to hit the main roads and freeways with little trouble.

Here are my pros and cons...

Pros: Clean, fairly new hotel; attentive staff and management; choice of pillow types; nice pool and hot tub; comfortable beds; quiet location.

Cons: The location is not convenient to the downtown or Lake Travis area. It's about a 15 minute drive to town and 45 minute drive to the lake. The breakfast was adequate but to call it a "hot breakfast" is a bit of a stretch. One other annoyance was the multitude of big screen TV's all over the property. There are 6 in the breakfast room alone, one in each elevator, one outside of each elevator, a couple in the sitting areas. It was strange. Finally, I felt that the price we paid ($100) per night was a bit high given the type of hotel and it's inconvenient location.

All in all not a bad place but do keep in mind the location.
