Use Uber! It's the best to get around. Max wait for a car was 7 mins. Drivers were mostly very helpful and friendly with lots of tips about where we should go.

Austin getaway

The staff was pleasant and the pool was awesome. Perfect for someone that is driving or rents a car, because it's a little out of the way from most things. I would absolutely stay there again.

Weekend family trip

1st night requested non-smoking room, got put in a smoking room. The bathroom door scraped the floor every time we tried to shut it. There was no water pressure, slow trickle. Try not to get room 101. This room is by a locked door that everyone must go through to get in and out. I heard every door slam and every conversation from every guest starting at 6am. Ughhh! The next night the motel moved us to another room that was a great improvement. Pool area was nice, breakfast was good.

wonderful trip

Our experience was very enjoyable. Breakfast was great, pool was clean and relaxing, bed was very comfortable. Only complaint was odd odor in room-not sure what it was but it was an odd plastic smell. Hotel was in great vicinity and distance from convention center.

A great value for a short stay

Nice, clean, remodeled hotel. Nice interior pool area. Easy freeway location but we most enjoyed a short drive to the south Congress district and into downtown. The included breakfast was just "okay". There's an attached Bar & Grill that has live music and decent food. Overall, a pleasant stay.

Best Western Plus

I had hoped to find a hotel in the downtown area for the holiday but as Austin is horribly short of meeting any kind of moderate demand we were forced to the fringe of the city. Considering that I believe we found a terrific hotel, clean, fine amenities, very comfortable room and easy highway access. Won't be afraid to stay here if the need arises.

Great location

Our first time in Austin to check out the city and it's culture and this hotel was perfect location as far as easy access to any music venue, shops, and food. Breakfast was typical hot continental buffet, pool was relaxing (we only used it maybe an hour each day to chill out) and the room was clean. Great price too!

Nice location, great breakfast, helpful staff

We stayed for 3 nights, primarily to take in the Longhorns scrimmage game and see some of Austin's sites. The hotel is situated fairly close to downtown, and we were easily able to get around by cab, walking, and biking using the city's handy B-cycle rentals. We went to 6th street a few times, Franklin BBQ (go EARLY!! We got there at 10:30 and the line was around the block--staff told us we were in the "no way you are getting BBQ today" section of the line), walked to and from the Congress Avenue bridge to watch the bats take flight, kayaked down Lady Bird Lake, and had a good time watching the Longhorns. The room was serviceable, clean and the mini-fridge and microwave were nice to have. The complimentary breakfast was better than a typical continental breakfast, and the fresh-made, Texas-shaped waffles were big, cute, and delish! Anyone should be able to fill up with the variety offered. The front desk staff was helpful and friendly, supplying me with sunscreen since mine was confiscated by the TSA, and offering to watch our luggage on departure day so we didn't have to lug it up the stairs as we grabbed our final breakfast. All-in-all it was a great stay and we would come again next time we are in Austin.
