“This place was perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

My band was in town playing a show in Austin and needed a cheap place to stay for the might. It was way nicer than the first Super 8 we checked out and less expensive. Everyone was super nice and helpful. The rooms were very clean and spacious.

Overall, not an entirely unpleasant stay, but there is definitely a reason that Super 8 is cheaper than the alternatives. The hotel looks like it was recently refurbished, and the room was in good condition, although it was pretty clear that it was an older room that had been refreshed. Some things, like dents in walls, just can't be fixed by a new coat of paint.

The furnishings were in good condition for the most part, although the clothes iron dumped a fair amount of water everywhere when I used it. To add insult to injury, the hair dryer didn't work, so I didn't have an easy way of drying my shirt except for running the iron over the wet spots over and over. I'm sure the front desk staff had replacements, but it'd be nice if the dryer and iron worked the first time.

I'm a fairly heavy sleeper, but I was awoken very early one morning to the sound of the dumpster being emptied. It's probably only an issue for rooms near the back corner of the building, but it's annoying if you're affected.

There was an odd infestation of ladybugs in my room, I counted 19 total, congregating on the ceiling in a corner. I didn't notice until my last day, so I didn't make a big deal of it, but it's still annoying to discover.

For our weekend stay it was perfect choice. Nice clean rooms. Lovely breakfast. Not far from downtown. Good price. Had a little trouble to navigate there first, but once we figured it out, it was no problem. Guess it depends on how lucky you are if you get noisy neighbors. We were kinda lucky this time.

If you travel just to see Austin for couple of days, be sure to visit:
* Barton Springs and
* Zilker Botanical Garden
also I was sad not to know that there is
* Disc golf area in Zilker park (for frisbee lovers like me)
Austin is not just about 6th street.

Wish you nice stay.
