quick visit to Austin

I stayed here for one night while passing through. I had a few things I wanted to see in Austin for my first visit and this hotel was a short car ride to nearly everything!

Place to crash

The restaurant/bar was great. Live entertainment was a plus. The morning breakfast buffet was excellent The pool was cold and not as nice as picture. Perhaps mid March was too soon to expect different. No one was using it for any length of time.

Great Weekend Getaway!

The hotel was very clean and had a great bar. The breakfast was delicious - the Texas shaped Waffles were definitely fun! The only downside was the location - there were not many activities that were walking distance, but it was a cheap cab ride. Would stay here again!

I love Best Western.

I've come to trust Best Western to provide an affordable, clean, well appointed room - and this stay was no exception. Made the reservation super last minute but price was still very reasonable. Staff was really friendly and helpful upon check-in. And the decor was cute/updated which is always appreciated. I headed out to downtown Austin right when I arrived (which is about a ten minute drive) but was told there was a restaurant/bar/live music available in the hotel nightly. Also, free breakfast! Would definitely stay here again.

Ok if you have a car

Fairly close to central Austin if you have a car, not walkable. Next to a very busy road so probably not best for lightsleepers. On the plus side, very clean & comfortable, free parking, good free breakfast.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

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.
