We tried to check in at 3:30 pm, and were told that our room was not ready. The guy checking us in told us to wait and that he would call our cell phone when the room was ready. I checked back with the front desk at 5:30 pm, and was told that the room was still not ready, due to the high occupancy. I'm not sure why they were not aware of the fact that they had high occupancy, seeing as we reserved our room well in advance. It was pretty frustrating to wait in the lobby for several hours after a six hour drive to Austin. Eventually, when we checked with them later that evening, our room was ready. They forgot to call us when housekeeping was done. When we entered the room, there was a used conditioner left in the shower. There was no shampoo or unused conditioner available. We called the lobby, and they sent up shampoo, but no conditioner. The room itself was perhaps equal to a days inn type room, pretty basic.
