Super 8 Austin Downtown/Capitol Area
Ranked #76 of 203 Hotels in Austin
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Remodeled rooms were great with hard floors. The location was in walking distance to downtown area and two blocks to Franklin BBQ. Close to the Capital building and LBJ library. Nice quiet and clean rooms.

Stayed here for a bachelor party in January. Very nice rooms, considering it is a motel. It was fairly loud, and the door didn't feel super secure - luckily the location seems fairly safe.

My room was in the middle of being remodeled, and consequently did not have artwork or a headboard for the bed. Still - considering location and cost, it was an acceptable place.

PRICE AND QUALITY
I paid about $75 after taxes for a Tuesday night stay. I was placed in room 130, the furthest room from the lobby that's on the 1st floor. The room actually had wood floors, which was a shock since Super 8 is a lower-tiered motel. Everything else is exactly what one would expect- no frills- just the necessities.

SLEEP QUALITY
At night, I could hear cars driving on the highway nearby. Bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper. One of the two pillows I had was also unbelievable flat. It was to the point where you can fold it in half and it wouldn't unfold by itself.

BREAKFAST
Meh- Yogurt, individually packaged muffins, cereal, bread, jelly, and bananas. The only teabags that were available were large decaffeinated Lipton tea bags- the ones meant to make an entire pitcher of tea. Kind of a waste of resources if you ask me.

PROXIMITY TO FRANKLIN BARBECUE
If you're visiting Austin, you may have heard about how awesome the restaurant "Franklin Barbecue" is. If not, go look it up and read some reviews about the delicious brisket and the long multi-hour wait in line each morning. This Super 8 is in a FANTASTIC location if you're considering buying food at Franklin Barbecue- less than 2 blocks away. .

(By the way, I rated Franklin Barbecue a 4 on TripAdvisor, but the overwhelming majority of people rated it a 5. If I focused solely on the food quality, I would also have rated it a 5)

If you're coming from the airport the hotel is about a 5 min walk from the bus drop-off point. It's about a 15-20 minute walk down to 6th street where the action is.

The rooms are very spacious but a bit jaded. The wifi is free and fast. The worst thing is that it can be a bit noisy with cars coming and going and with people above you. Make sure you get up early if you want the free breakfast. The food goes quickly and doesn't get replenished.
