Simple Place to stay

If you need a simple place to get some rest, this place will allow you to do that. Its not fancy, and the rooms are average. For the price though, you get what you pay for. It works just fine for those on a budget!

UT game handy

The location is ideal for leaving your car and jumping in a 7$ UBER to tailgate outside the stadium for UT games. It was a 12$ ride back from 6th street. The room itself was fine.

convienient and good price

The staff was very helpful and polite. The rooms were clean and updated. It is not an elegant place, but it is a place to sleep. The continental breakfast was sufficient. The dinner next store had great quality food.

Good for sxsw

I was a good price for sxsw. It was right next to the free way so you had the freeway noise. But other than that it's a overall good hotel

Location is not the best

Walking distance to the University of Texas Austin but not a good place to walk after dark. The people were friendly. The room is old but clean. Had a fridge and microwave but no table or chair.

The room was fine, specially if you are looking for a cheap hotel just to spend the night. Breakfast is good enough.

Basic, fine

Basic hotel, clean rooms, decent staff; close enough to downtown and right near the UT campus/stadiums. There were no bugs or anything like that and there's nothing extraordinary to report. If you have a car, fine; if you need to ride a bus somewhere, it's fine too. Good basic hotel.
