although the hotel was relatively clean (despite there being a pair of undies behind the dresser) , most staff were pleasant and helpful, and there was convenient shuttle service to the airport, i would not stay here again while visiting Austin.
Yes, it's an airport location so i realize easy access to downtown and Austin sites are not to be expected, however, i expect staff to know how to get there. i was told the only way to downtown was via taxi (runs about $25-30) which after a quick google search i found out there is a bus system that for $1 will take you from the airport area directly to downtown (Capitol Metro, the 100 line). wifi is incredibly slow. AC system is archaic and let off an odor.
the hotel is not quiet. Walls are paper thin- on the 3rd floor i could hear convo's happening outside AND significant movement above me. To be expected in an old apartment but not in a $135 a night Hampton Inn room. Obviously, you can hear the planes- although to be expected.
Overall, I felt it was a rip off. If you want to be near the airport there are loads of other hotels right around the Hampton that could probably offer a better price and shuttle service - Microtel, La Quinta, Courtyard, etc. I highly recommend shopping around for your money's worth.
Again, not terrible and although i think you can find better, the location is pretty good for an airport hotel- walking distance from a 7/11, a starbucks, and a few other chain establishments. And free breakfast is always cool with me. The shuttle drivers are super nice.
