This is a completely adequate hotel. You'll be disappointed if you pay full price (use the name your own price option and offer about half). Although it has been remodeled, the carpets in hallways are dirty. The hotel is located on the lake, but keep in mind that half the rooms will face the parking lot - which mine did. Internet is available and free (although not secure) but do not fall victim to their advertising of a shuttle that will take you anywhere within two miles. Over a 4 day stay and several requests for the shuttle to UT campus, I was only able to use the shuttle once.... the attendant said that the shuttle was unavailable, yet it sat motionless and empty in the parkinglot right behind me as I asked. Be prepared to pay for a cab (which they will generously call for you..) It is not really close enough to walk to anything other than the lake. My sink had no hot water - despite being left running for almost 5 minutes - but the shower water was hot very quickly. This is an adequate hotel - not great, not bad, but under no circumstances should you pay full price.
