Lots of bad reviews on here about this hotel. The parking cost is the same as many other hotels in Austin. The breakfast is good - and it's FREE!! Clean and yes dated rooms, very friendly staff! Great location

Stayed here while teaching a course at UT Austin. Rooms are clean but outdated. Internet is slow, continental breakfast consists of sugar and carbs and little else. Concrete courtyard makes this place LOUD especially at night when you're trying to sleep. Won't stay here again if I can help it.

The hotel is very clean and a good nights sleep. Not a lot of amenities but you save a little bit over the cost of other nearby hotels. Be aware that if you drive, there is about a $25.00 valet parking charge that is added to your room each night...this makes the price go up. The breakfast is not much...

Stayed here one night on a visit to Austin. The hotel is really average, which means it did the job and I have no complaints (but also nothing particularly positive to say). The room was spacious and the shower hot, although the toilet was slightly broken (the water wouldn't stop running). Not a complaint as such though because we didn't...

An average hotel in down town Austin. If you expect much you will get disapointed. A basic hotel with the most important amenities is what you get. One Thing though; its clean and even though some say that there is a lot of noise i didnt experience it. Looking at the price i do not feel it is worth the...

This was absolute THE WORST hotel experience ever on every level. I'm here on business for about 8 nights. 4th night in, there were ants on my bed, crawling on me and my iPad.

Huge disappointment when we got here at 12am, tired and cold, only to find out that there's a $25 parking fee! I thought there was really no parking spaces, thus the $25 valet fee. I decided to park on a street nearby but I had to wake up at 6:30 just to go feed the meter. When I walked back...

This was booked on the day. It was quite reasonably priced however I made the common British error of forgetting the valet parking charge 😒.
