La Quinta Inn Austin University Area
Ranked #157 of 201 Hotels in Austin
Reviewed February 24, 2006

I stayed for two nights after getting a very good rate at orbitz. First night wasn't good - although the room was clean and in good overall condition, I was put in a smoking room despite having requested nonsmoking. The smell was enough that I ended up with a sore throat and the front desk was barely apologetic, claiming the full house conditions that led to this assignment.

However, the staff the next morning were helpful and accomodating; they gave me the first available nonsmoking room. The tub in the 2nd room didn't look good - bit of rust and ugly residue from a long ago nonslip surface - but all was clean and the room was comfy with no trace of smokers. Staff in the evening next day were also friendly and helpful.

Breakfast was typical packaged continental, improved by everything being fresh, a toaster for the bagels, and hard boiled eggs for some protein. Location just under I-35 meant some highway noise but very convenient, and I could walk to several restaurants.

This hotel is off of the freeway, and near a mall. There is a steak place in walking distance, and many in driving distance. The rooms are very cozy. The parking lot is very secure, and the grounds are videotaped. The only drawback is the breakfast. Not that big seclections.

I have stayed here twice in the last two years and both times it has been a good experience.
The rooms are quite large and very clean. There are 2 or 3 nice restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. The only negative is the average continental breakfast.
