6th street is AWESOME, if you are in Austin over the weekend (or for Thu or Fri night) you have to go check it out. Buffalo Billiards is fantastic :-)

reasonable!

The price is very reasonable. Staff was very kind. Location was safe and calm. Room was a little old, but cleaned very well. Compare to famous hotel, such as Hiiton, four seasons, you may feel cheap. But when you want to save money, that hotel is not so bad for several days stay.

No complaints- Great Stay!

The hotel is located in the downtown, very close to the Capitol. Plus, its one of the cheapest option you can get (with the best value you can get) at a convenient location. I am extremely satisfied with the room cleanliness and comfort. Staff were very helpful. Particularly, a lady named Sylvia who sits at the front desk. I definitely recommend La Quinta!

Almost all restaurants in the downtown are closed on Sundays. Atleast that's what I found during the day. the only option available was a Subway. So, plan accordingly.

Good Room and Location

It is a La Quinta that needs some lovin' done to its exterior. Really, who cares about the exterior when you are staying at a La Quinta? Not me. This place is moderate walking distance from 6th street. I'd say 10 minutes or so. The room is standard clean although I did have a duvet which I have never understood in warm climates. If you are like me and are satisfied with a decent bed and a clean room, then look no further.

You can walk to 6th street, but not Southern Congress or even the bat bridge in the summer. It would be too hot.

Great Location

This was a nice hotel in a great location. You get what you pay for but its worth it for a close place to crash at the end of a long day. The staff was nice and the valets were courteous and cool. If you don't mind walking, this is a great place to stay.

Mixed blessings

Good location for university and Sixth Street. The latter occasionally brings in guests who party throughout the night. The night staff seems to be unable to control the scene and allow other guests to have a good-night's sleep.
