“Unexpectedly Pleased!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2010

Before choosing the Super 8 - Airport, I read a review by someone who evidently wasn't pleased with their stay sometime in the past. I had not stayed in a Super 8 Hotel before and cost was a significant factor in my selection of a hotel for my stay of several days. I made a reservation and was expecting something on a par with the old Motel 6 quality of many years ago. I expected, for the price, a "bare-bones" small room with a bed and bathroom and little else. I was certainly plesantly surprised to find a large room with a writing desk, chair and a very comfortable chair and automan for reading or watching TV. There was a small refrigerator and microwave. It ws quiet and the bed was very comfortable. The room was very clean. The complimentary breakfast included may choices beside sweet rolls. (I like a hot breakfast.) If all Super 8 hotels are like this one, I'll be using them more often in my travels.

On our first trip to Austin, my wife and I spent five nights at this motel. I selected it because of the high rating and many positive comments in TripAdvisor. It was fine in every way. Our room was spotless, comfortable and nicely decorated. The staff was helpful. Many extras, including cake or cookies, as well as hot beverages, in the evening. The breakfasts were good. We drove into Austin each day; except during rush hour, the drive took about 15 minutes. No full-service restaurant nearby, but this was not a problem for us.

This hotel was far above and beyond any expectations I had. And just minutes from downtown. Every need we had was anticipated. Lavish breakfast and dessert bar. Snacks in the room for free. Starbucks coffee/latte/espresso machine. Video/books library. Sauna/exercise room. Extensive guidebook with thoughtful notes. Helpful employees. Pillow menu. TV in the elevator. I'm just getting started...Serious luxury for this economy price!

Stayed here two years ago and it was excellent. Sadly a lot has changed. The smell of mothballs hits you the moment you enter the lobby. It then permeates the entire hotel. The rooms are not as clean and pristine as they once were. There are stains on the furniture and the bathroom had water damage on the wall and mold around the tub. The pillows were not good but the bed was comfortable. The price is good and location is great, but I will not be giving this Super 8 another chance.

Sometimes Austin hotels just go weird on their pricing and not even Priceline could offer a decent rate on a hotel. Well, I went to Tripadvisor to find some good alternatives and this Motel came up. At first it seemed like a sketchy deal, but this Motel is for REAL! Best pricing, clean, free internet, free snacks and water in the room, free printing service, free parking, free use of meeting room (breakfast room) and super friendly staff! Ill stay here again in a heartbeat. Best deal in Austin when downtown is too expensive! Thanks to the staff which went all the way and then some to make sure that our stay was perfect. I love when customer satisfaction is the top priority of a hotel!

Pros-The hotel had many little things that just made me smile because they were an effort to show they wanted to please their customers (laundry basket, scale, free treats in a basket in room, pilllow menu, cd player on alarm clock, dvd player with dvd selections in lobby, books to borrow in lobby as well, little store in lobby, free dessert and coffee in the lobby (evening). The hotel was CLEAN which is the only thing I care about when hotel shopping. The desk staff was courteous and knew the area well to direct help me downtown with a map and directions. Bed was comfy and room had basic amenities. Quiet location. Breakfast, although not gourmet, had hot options and offered a nice little selection.

Cons-The location is not really near anything, but is within 5 miles of the downtown area. I'm really trying here as I am usually quite picky, but on this stay we did not have any negative experiences.

Overall, this is not what you would expect or receive from your average 2 star hotel. I think they have the amenities at this location probably put them in the 3 star range although Super 8 aren't traditionally 3 star hotels. I read the reviews so we were not too surprised about what they offered, so it lived up to the ratings. For the price, this location was a winner.

We attended my nephew's wedding in Austin, TX. We arrived at midnight to our room, exhausted. The beds were amazing! This motel was clean; the staff very friendly; the breakfast was very good with a variety of food. It was great to have someone take us to the airport when we needed to leave. Thanks.
