“Scary place, seems like an by the hour kind of place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

Checking in to this hotel is scary when you have to go to the night window. Place seems like an excellent place for drug dealers and ladies of the night. Room had a weird smell, roaches in bathroom. I would have went somewhere else but Austin was sold out that night due to a football game, I did try to find other accommodations. We luckily had sleeping bags that we sleep on top of the beds. I would not ever stay here again even if it was free!

First off when you drive in it is scary! We drove from houston, so we didn't get there till around 10pm. We would have gone somewhere else, but after calling around we realized that Austin was sold out due to the UT game. Don't believe the front desk people when you call to make your reservation, yes this is close. Truly a roach motel. They seem to live behind the toilet, we didn't take off our socks but walking on the floor in new socks for less than 20 minutes they were black. It had a weird smell, and the security guard was the only thing good about staying here. If you are homeless this is a great hotel.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

This was a last minute trip...Wanted something as cheap as possible and close to downtown...It' not right downtown as labeled but is a 10mins walk to the convention center and close to 6th st and closest to the red river district, just over the I35 bridge...no frills...small breakfast room...no restaurants right there just a cvs drug store...fine for just a place to crash at night...Security at night so it is safe...

Room Tip: If you can't walk 10mins forget it...Found a great Thai restaurant on 6th St called Mekong River...
