Some truck pulled in during the night and ran in to the covered parking area. The tub was so slick we had to put a towel down while we showered. Not very safe. Noisy but that's Austin.

We stayed here for just 1 night. Friendly staff! Rooms were a good size and clean. Includes parking and breakfast. Great location! We just caught an uber into 6th Street dor less then $10. Unfortunately someone had disobeyed the no smoking rule so our room did have that awful smell but when I told the staff they were very apologetic.... More

Although the room was spotless and well appointed, it's position next to I-35 made it a nightmare instead of a dream. Possibly rooms set farther back in the property would fare better.

Thank you so much for your review. We truly appreciate your feedback. I'ts always great to hear from our guests. Our location, though convenient to downtown and University of Texas, does come with a price... we are right off the interstate and that can be a bit noisy. We are glad you stayed with us and have started offering complimentary... More

This was my first visit to Austin and my first time driving in the US but the location of Days Inn meant it was easy to get to, just off the I-35. It means the location isn't pretty, being right next to a busy highway but that's made up for in having a competitive price compared to places close to... More
