La Quinta Inn Austin Capitol
Ranked #161 of 204 Hotels in Austin
Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

This hotel has a great location! Half a block from the Capitol, a few blocks from 6th Street and the UT campus. Hotel is old but rooms are nice... Very comfortable beds! A/C had some kinks and so did the toilet (had to jiggle the handle to get the tank to fill after each flush); also, bathroom door was hard to close & didnt have a lock or any type of latch. Continental breakfast was sparse, mandatory valet parking, pool not heated, but friendly staff... especially the valets. Location made up for the negatives. I would stay here again.

Great place to stay when in Austin, clean and comfortable with an unbeatable location. Easy to get to great palces to east like Annie's Cafe. Capitol grounds are very nice and an easy walk, lots of music options all on all a great value.

you get what you pay for, but it's a block from the Capitol so you'd think it would be nicer. There was a sanitary sticker form a swimsuit on the mirror when I arrived. The walls are paper thin, so I heard my neighbor getting after it. The shower was mildewed, the sheets stunk of smoke. The parking is stupid, and the car service employees were very rude.

The rates and the location of this hotel are wonderful. The matteress was amazingly comfortable. The staff helpfulwhen they could be. There are no food options, other than a sparce breakfast, provided by the hotel. There is a menu in the room through the "Order Inn" folks, Lasagna was delivered, ended up costing over $25...for one, No flatware was provided, No bread for the butter. Bad experience, Ants in the room. Reported the first night, they said they would send someone in to spray. Worse second night, Closest restaurant is ,2 miles away, Not a bad walk there...downhill all the way. Seriously uphill coming back.... No business center. Internet was slow, slow, slow!! Printer is supposedly available for printing boarding passes. Didn't work. Finally, clerk printed it for me from her computer. Very frustrating. No snack machines that I could find.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the capitol...nighttime view really is wonderful!

Rooms are small, but clean and in good order. Has a pool. Friendly staff. Convenient location near downtown and Capitol area. Rates very reasonable for location. Save the money for the restaurants.
