I've never reviewed a hotel before but afte reading all of the other reviews, I felt it necessary to share my comments.
I stayed here for a week for SXSW, so it was a really busy time. This was the cheapest place i could find in the downtown area.
The reception and valet staff were fantastic... Really friendly and helpful.
My room was actually really nice and quite roomy. Plenty of space in the bathroom too and very clean.
The location was perfect, only a few blocks walk to 6th street.
We did pay a lot per night, but everywhere was overpriced at this time over the festival. As other people have said, it is more of a motel than a hotel, but it is honestly quite nice.
The lift and hallways are a bit old and grotty, but apart from that I was really satisfied with the hotel.
