Good Deal

I've stayed at this hotel many times over the past 15 years or so (back when it was the Red Lion Hotel). Even though it's not a new hotel, they've done a great job with upkeep and I would highly recommend it. Great quality for the price, considering the downtown hotels can easily be double the price.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

Hotel provides shuttle that will take you to 6th Street Entertainment District. They can't guarantee you a return trip, but you can easily catch a cab back for about $12-$14.

Great north Austin stay!

The room was very nice, clean, beds were soft, nice sheets and down pillows. Our only complaint was that the room was a little small and the bathroom was tiiiiny! Other than that, location was good, hardly interacted with staff although they were friendly, view of pool was nice. For the price this room was a steal!

Great Deal!

We had a quick overnight stay here and it was great. clean rooms, attentive staff and wonderful value for the money. The bar makes good drinks that aren't to pricey. The only con was that the housekeeping staff kept knocking on our door before we were awake, but if you put the do not disturb sign up you shouldn't have any problems. Overall this is one of the nicer hotels we have stayed at on our cross country road trip!

Actually pretty great

Really very nice. I've paid the same for much lesser rooms in the area without Orbitz. The little bed pillows were suprisingly comfortable. A faulty hair dryer was promptly replaced. The TINY coffee maker wsa a bit of a drag. My first floor "smoking" room required an elevator trip to the 2nd floor for ice, but no big deal. Overall, a great place.
