This place is cool, good for getting into downtown and soco. Very friendly staff with really good self serve breakfast. The reason this place stands apart is because of its bar, live music, great bar staff and friendly vibe.
I would recommend this place highly.

Thank you so much for the great review! I will pass your compliments on to the Blue Moon Bar & Grill management. I know they work hard to make a fun and friendly atmosphere.

This hotel was very modern. It seemed recently update and the staff was very friendly and helpful! It wasn't right in the city, but a very close drive. It had free parking and a free full breakfast which was also very nice. The rooms were a little small, but good enough if you aren't planning to spend a lot of time in your room, which we weren't. The last night of our stay the guests next to us were very loud, slamming doors and such during the night, that was the only real downfall of the trip. Overall I would recommend for a cheap nights stay!

Was in town to visit friends. Clean rooms. Breakfast was not that great but it was complimentary. We ate it one morning but second morning we went across to Denny's for a quick breakfast. The blues band at night was a lot of fun for when we got back late and wanted to have a drink and listen to some music. The veggie portobello burger was soo yummy for a late night meal. Hotel staff was okay. We were close enough to down town and Rainy Street for a quick cab ride.

Room Tip: We had pool view which was nice.

Had a great stay in Austin, morning breakfast was very good, the staff was wonderful, very helpful, right off the I-35 close to UT where we visited our granddaughter and took in a Longhorn football game.

Stayed here for an IT convention, got a great group rate with some friends. Very clean, very pretty pool area, little weird walking up stairs to get to my room, but overall, extremely quiet, very helpful staff, sweet little bar/restaurant right onsite. Only complaint I had was the AC unit was a bit noisy on startup, but once it got going it was acceptable. Overall, had a great stay here, and would definitely stay again.

Thank you for the great review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. While it's true that our property has some quirks to it inherent to its age, the multi-million dollar renovation we went through last winter makes the visit worth the trip!

Booked this hotel for a family reunion in Austin, TX. The location, price and staff exceeded our expectations. Great value to be minutes from downtown Austin. Lounge/Bar on premises for all of us to meet late at night without having to worry about driving.

If you are looking for a nice place to refresh that isn't too far from downtown and is not super pricey, this hotel will fit the bill. With easy access to the highway, discounts for gov't employees and AAA members, and super friendly staff, this Best Western was a great find!
