Considering the prices charged by other Austin hotels/motels, this place is a steal. Front desk staff is very helpful. Rooms are large & cheery with fridge & microwave. Very clean. Nice TV. However, rooms could use brighter light bulbs & the fluorescent lighting in the bathroom is a bit scary. Housekeeping does a very good job. Grounds are nicely landscaped & well maintained. You'll feel safe outside no matter what time of day. Great perk is the free breakfast. Definitely not shabby. Hot & cold offerings, juices, fruit, & rather good coffee. Breakfast room is constantly being restocked & cleaned. Have stayed here several times & will keep coming back. You can tell that the management really cares about the property. And that makes a huge difference., but could use brighter light bulbs.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the back above the ground floor. Nice views from the room windows there. Very quiet...

Went to Austin in December for a night of craziness.....and chose this hotel for it's location, value, and as it was recommended for it's great staff.

Their owner/manager (Jay i believe his name) was very accommodating and told me the best places to visit etc.

Rooms were surprisingly clean and spacious compared to other Super8 hotels i have stayed at.

For a "no frills" hotel....this has to be the best place around there.

PS: There is a mexican bar right next door....excellent "Southern Hospitality" service!
