This is the only low-priced property in downtown Austin, just across I-35 but walking distance from the Texas capitol, the University, and not that far from Austin's famed nightlife; it's also and only a couple blocks from a stop for the super-cheap ($1) airport express bus. Rates are reasonable and downright cheap with a Priceline Express Deal (hint: it's likely to be one of the only 1-star hotels in Downtown Austin). As such it's better than it has to be. Rooms are a bit rundown but large enough and well-equipped, with a microwave and fridge, decent selection of cable channels, and excellent free wifi. There's a pool, and the free breakfast is above average for 1-star-type places, with yogurt and bananas supplementing the usual fare. It's not elegant, but it's a reasonable choice for cheapskates, especially ones who don't have a car.

Sketchy types hanging out in the parking lot.
Not in a good part of town.
Even though online the price is around $64, the woman behind the counter said the price was $82.
They were also unfriendly and took 10 minutes to even address us as we stood in front of the counter.
It's just not worth it, go a couple miles north to the super 8university. It's cleaner, better looking, staff is friendlier, and it's cheaper!
