First trip to Austin Texas

The hotel was very easy to find. The staff were friendly and helpful. Loved the continental breakfast every morning. One of the cleanest hotels I have stayed in. During a bad thunderstorm, my ceiling leaked over the bed. They were very nice, got me a new room, and the man at the desk came and moved all my luggage for me to the other room. Plus it was a nicer room than I had booked!!! That is good customer service : ) Will go back again.

First Time Ever Breaking Reservation

I've never done that before, but this place was an absolute rat's nest. The rooms were in bad shape (and I had a recently remodeled one!), there was broken drywall all over the hallways, the AC didn't work in the halls, the rooms smelled of something unmentionable. There were some seriously skeezy clientele, derelict vehicles in the parking lot. NOT a place for children at all. Just wow, and not the happy wow.

Good place to stay near Austin

Good: staff was wonderful; great location. Very quiet even though it was close to the freeway. Bad: They ran out of breakfast basics, like milk. Lots of other stuff to eat. Internet was slow in the room, but fast in the lobby; other rooms are probably fine. Room had been beat up by previous tenants; too bad as this was once a really nice place. I would stay here again for this price!

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

Before you 'move in' look over rooms, and try your computer. Many motels have slow internet in rooms, and most have really fast internet close to the wifi antenna. We enjoyed the History Museum downtown.

"Cheesy hotel"

No chairs in the room, torn matresses, dirty walls, hole in ceiling, lots of mold/mildew in shower, dirty carpet. Smelled like a smokey bar room, even though it is a "smoke free" hotel. I would not recommend at any price, don't stay here!

not good experience

The room had roaches .also the bathroom ceiling looked as if it was Chung to fall down at ant moment. The hotel itself had things wrong. It had water leaking from the ceiling on the way to the lobby. Also the exercise room had part of the room covered as if it was not finished. The whole place had a dirty atmosphere about. It.

Could Not Stay

Walked into lobby, seemed like renovation was about to begin. Checked out 3 rooms and had to get a refund. Rooms were so deplorable I could not let my family stay in this run down motel. Staff was understanding, and knew the pictures were not the real rooms.
