I was a little leery about staying here as I haven't heard good things about the chain, but when searching for a hotel in the Austin/San Antonio area, this was the only vacancy I could find online, even 2 weeks before our trip. It turned out fine. It's not as nice as a Holiday Inn, but it was sufficient for our over night stay and the staff were very friendly.
I was very perplexed when someone from the hotel called me around 5pm the day of my reservation and asked if I knew an approximate time of arrival. I wasn't sure, so I said maybe between 9-10pm. They asked if I was going to be checking in after 10pm, if could call them and let them know. I've never had a hotel ask me to do this. I've never had a hotel call and ask my ETA. I wasn't able to call when I realized we wouldn't be arriving until after 10pm and when I got back to my phone, they had called and left a message asking if I was still coming and to please call them back with an ETA. So I did. I thought this was really bizarre, but after arriving, I think I figured out it's because it's a family run business and they don't always have someone at the front desk like I'm used to.
So just be aware they could call for your estimated time of arrival!
