“Good Value”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

This hotel is the place to stay if you need to be in Austin on a budget. The nicer hotels in the area can be very expensive and this one was very reasonable when we were there. The hotel itself is nice and the bed was comfortable but it does not have some of the other amenities that the other big hotels have. It was good for the price!

Generally a nice place to stay. Kitchen is equipped quite bascially. Nearest supermarket is driving distance away. Location is fair, just outside the dowtown centre but close to alot of public transport. Rooms are alright, fairly clean. All in all alright. I felt that the reception could use with extra staff, they are often on the phone or answering queries so if you need to talk to them you have to be lucky with your timing.
Breakfast really is grab and go. Don't raise your hopes up too high. Its basically muffins, cereal bars, coffee, fruit and oatmeal. If you arrive late there will be less left.

The price for this hotel has increased significantly as have prices for all downtown Austin hotels. Look for discounts; sign up for alerts, which offer 25-20% discounts. Prices go down as you get closer to travel dates depending on booking. Suites are dated and do not look remodeled, as the hotel website states. Popcorn ceilings, worn bed sheets. Roomy with a frig, burners, internet access, and parking (free!). Within a block of 4-star hotels that cost three times what this hotel charges.

Room Tip: You can opt for no-house keeping during your stay, which will save you money. You can pick up free t...

Asked for non-smoking room when reserving online, but somehow got assigned to a smoke room covered by heavy cleaning perfumes. (First night)
Water heater was not working for whole hotel second day morning. They did repair it, but I had to delay my meeting.
Asked to switch to anothe room, staff was friendly to help but the new room door handle was not functioning well. It has to be opened by swinging the handle upward, not downward (the staff was patient to help me figure it out). AC of new room was nice and super strong. I Try to save electricity for hotel when not in the room, but it won't automatically shut off when reach set temperature. So the room is constantly blowing AC. The kitchenwares are not provided in the room. Guests need to ask the front desk to deliver the whole kitchen set to you. Not sure if this is a new policy or just because too many guests are stealing. If I have to wait till the kitchen ware to deliver to my room and give tips for that again, maybe next time I should just book a hotel without kitchen and go out to eat. I can understand the hotel is trying to reduce its expense, but sometimes understaff is also trading off its customer service and hotel staying quality because staffs have too many things to do, and it is hard for them to put up a friendly smile when over stressed.

Leaking bathtub facet and shower didn't work properly. Slamming neighbor's doors made it difficult to sleep. Asked housekeeper to change towels but, she never did. Front desk staff were cold and impersonal.

Nothing special, but clean, and walking distance to downtown. Threadgill's right next store, and plenty of other places to eat within walking distance. Breakfast nothing special, granola bars and fruit. Nice to have a refrigerator. There was a stove, but know pots, or pans or plates???

This is an average hotel. It was clean, but our "non-smoking" room smelled like smoke, which was disappointing. The staff needs to be friendlier, although the man that fixed our door that was stuck fixed it as soon as we got there and he was nice. The grab-and-go breakfast was disappointing. The value is great though for just staying a short walk from downtown Austin and 6th street.
