“Clean rooms and good service for highway hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

The beds were really comfortable and the room clean. The pool was very clean as well as the spa and the polo area was tidy. The surrounding area is right along the highway, and a bit dodgy. The staff was friendly and helpful. WIFI was good.

We were disappointed by our stay at this hotel not up to Country Inns & Suites standards.

Carlson's Country Inn and Suites has wonderful rooms and a great night clerk. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. The breakfast was hot and plenty of it. Parking area has lot of spaces but if a few large vehicles are there, it is very tight to maneuver around. They should have a place for larger vehicles.

The problem for business is their internet. They offer it free from Time Warner but it is so slow it's almost useless. To do any real work, I had to go to a coffee house.

We need a place for the three of us. We wanted easy access to the city and it had to be reputable. The staff was amazing from the first phone call until the checkout. The Manager obviously set the tone here because he was so friendly and Proffessional.

Super clean and room are awesome. The area behind is a bit ruff but was not an issue.

Staff was friendly. Room was clean. Bed was comfortable. Location was convenient. Parking was ample and well lit. Breakfast was basic .. But a good variety and plentiful. WiFi worked well. We drove through the neighborhood behind the hotel. It is a typical lower working class neighborhood. We would stay there again .. And most likely will.

Warning -- Austin is a very transient college town. Don't leave valuables in a car overnight at ANY Austin hotel unless those items are locked up in the trunk. Things will disappear.
