I was in, what is considered to be, the older tower. Room was small. 2 full beds pretty much took up the entire width of the room with some space in between. Bathroom was small too. Everything in the room was clean and in good working condition. There was a mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee in the room. I don't know...

Thanks for the detailed review. It appears that you had a pleasant stay. Our last complete renovation was in 2009 but we’re in the process of another one for this year. We get heavy use so it’s a never ending process to keep everything up to date and in good order. The business center computers are checked daily but it’s...

Good location on the lake, close to Rainey Street which was a real plus. Did not have opportunity to take advantage of pool or other amenities but the staff we encountered were all very friendly. Free wifi always a plus.

I stayed two night in April and was very satisfied. My room was clean and updated. The bed comfortable. The bathroom was on the small side but I was traveling alone so that was not a problem. Checking in took a little more time then it should because there were only two people behind the desk and there was a...

Thank you for the comments and observations. They are welcomed from a seasoned traveler and top contributor to Trip Advisor. We do our best every day to provide clean and comfortable accommodations at a reasonable cost. We’re generally priced competitively with similar hotels but we also provide free parking and WiFi unlike other properties around the downtown area. This can...

This is a standard Holiday Inn. As a platinum member, the "free" gift was 500 points or a free drink. I like other hotels that allow you to grab amenities from the gift shop. Speaking of gift shop, they don't allow you to use your credit card unless it is a $10 charge. Really? Overpriced and no credit card? There...

Thanks for the detailed comments and for taking the time to relay them, particularly the information on the gift shop. Like many hotels, we do not run the gift shop or set their policies although we will be addressing the $10.00 minimum. I understand that many small businesses seek to minimize the percentage paid as so called “swipe fees” by...

The quality of the hotel is fine, as you would expect from a Holiday Inn. The location is right next to the I35, which is great if you are just passing through. However, you can't easily walk to all the main sights in Austin, especially when it's hot. The only thing close by is Rainey Street, which is great for...

Thanks for your comments. It appears as if you had a pleasant stay with us. Many guest like our location on the lake and away from the bustle of the city center. We are close enough to walk but it’s roughly a 15 minute walk to the convention center. We do offer a complimentary shuttle to our guests, based on...

Stayed here for 2 nights. Upon check-in (at 7 pm) we were told we had to wait for the staff to finish cleaning our room. It was taking some time for the staff to clean the room so we left for a quick dinner and came back to within the hour to check-in. Our room was ready by the time...

The hotel has a great location. It's right on the trail system along Town Lake with easy access to the Rainey Street entertainment area, and about a 12 minute walk to the Convention Center. It was just far enough away from the busy areas that it was nice and quiet at the hotel. While the hotel is a bit dated,...

Staff is great. Hotel is tired. Location convenient to convention. Breakfast is a great deal. Nice to be next to lady bird lake. Make sure you book airport travel way ahead of time, waited too long and it cost a fortune. Shuttle bus can work as well

Thanks for the kind comments and yes, our staff is great. The location gives our guests the convenience of being close to Downtown and a scenic setting on Lady Bird Lake.

Thanks for the colorful review. Although we obviously did not meet your expectations, there are a few points that merit correction.
