Fun Trip to Austin

My wife and I flew to Austin from Long Beach in May to check out the music scene and eat some killer bbq. We stayed at the La Quinta Inn mostly because it was reasonably priced and fairly close to music venues, the Capital and UT. Our room was on the fourth floor. The corridor leading to our room had a very pungent mold odor that hit us like a ton of bricks every time we came back to the hotel. The screen on the TV was not working properly and the light in the bathroom was flickering. Also saw a few roaches on the grounds although not in the room. This hotel needs an overhaul or upgrade. Most likely, I will not stay here again nor recommend it to friends.

Great stay!

Hotel is standard, breakfast was good. Stayed for 5 days. Long corridors, so the walk up to my room took like 5 minutes! Loved the view of the Capitol from my room.

Austin overnight trip

I booked the room at La Quinta inn to hang out downtown with some friends. The location is perfect for those wanting to bar hop around and being able to walk back. Room was clean and only thing that kinda sucked is the tv didn't work but it's not like we were there long enough to really watch tv. No complaints. The valet guys were really courteous and helpful.

Birthday Trip!

When we arrived the staff was friendly and helpful. Good location and decent room for the price, however, refrigerators in the room would be rather nice.

Location great, but impossibile to sleep. Close the highway

No good at all. The highway close to the hotel made our night experience a true nightmare. It was hard to sleep at night. The location however was good. Close to the river walk.

Good Austin Location

Stayed at La Quinta downtown Austin on a mid-week night. The location is the only thing going for this hotel. We walked downhill to the 6th street live music scene and hiked back up. Might want to take a taxi for the return if you're lazy. The streets seem safe even in the dead of night. Walked to the Capitol building and enjoyed looking around. The breakfast CLOSED at 9:00, but from the looks of it, we didn't miss much. Found a great little coffee place across from the Capitol building that was friendly and had good breakfast items. The hotel is completely mediocre. It does the job. The staff is terrific, especially the parking attendants.

Entertainment tip: Long walk from hotel

Even if the 6th Street action seems slow, just walk in wherever you see someone with a guitar case. They'll start up the music just for you, and more people will show up. That's what happened to us when we arrived too early. Buy pizza on the street and take it into the bar. We had a blast starting our own party, and many more people joined us. You can walk there from La Quinta.
