*Check-in was easy though the attendant was more interested in talking to her friend in the lobby than us. Wasn't wearing any sort of uniform (not even a nametag) & couldn't recommend a place for dinner.
*Moldy smell in the whole hotel; within 5 minutes of being in the room my throat became tight and I started coughing.
*Damaged walls by the bed (see pictures)
*Sunflower Seeds on the floor... So, they didn't vacuum.
*We were waiting for bugs but luckily didn't SEE any... I'm sure they're around though.
*Makeup on my pillowcase... Guess they didn't change em from the last guest which means the sheets weren't either.
*Mismatched sheets - come on guys.
*Bathroom door doesn't close easily and there are remnants of past advertising fixtures still on them.
*Teeny tiny sink and mirror OUTSIDE the shower/toilet closet.
*Tub sealants cracked, exposed lightbulb over shower.
*Very thin walls; we could hear everything happening around us.
*Oldest/smallest elevator i've ever ridden in.
*Parking lot feels shady, I was hesitant to leave my car out there.
*In fact the whole place feels shady; we didn't leave any belongings in the room while venturing out during the day.
*Breakfast is less than your typical continental. There are 2 juice choices, 2 cereal choices, a pitcher of milk (just sitting out at room temp), a few instant oatmeal packs, and a handful of frozen muffins & bagels. Yuck.
Website says "recently renovated" and tacky paper signs on the door say they are currently renovating but I see no upgrades or progress. Seriously considered changing hotels for our second night, but with Cinco de Mayo everything was booked up! Management needs to invest a couple mil into this property to clean it up and make it classier. We tried yo give HOJO the benefit of the doubt but they let us down. It is fairly convenient to downtown Austin, just about a 5 minute drive but the next time I come to town I will pay more to be right in the action and to be comfortable in my room.
