Great For 20-Somethings

I do like this hotel for downtown Austin. The combination of location+price can't be beat. But perhaps for that exact reason, it's full of 20-somethings in town to party. There were drunks talking loudly outside my room till past 3 AM. I'll pay more at another hotel next time for a better night's sleep, it's not worth it.

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.

great spot, friendly staff

I was there to visit the graduate school at UT. The location was great. It's a nice walk by the capitol building to the campus. There's a great tex-mex place 2 blocks down the hill (suggested to me by the hotel staff). The room I found to be clean enough. I wouldn't do pushups (or lay at all) on the floor without a towel. But for the price, and the location, I was fully satisfied with the room.

Great location, helpful staff

Very positive although reviews were fairly negative. My room was recently painted, very clean. AC was a little noisy. No noisy fellow travelers in middle of week. Bed and pillows comfortable. Good continental breakfast with waffles, oatmeal, bagels, juice.

The grill in the capitol building has a variety of foods, depending on day and if legislature is in session, fast. Cafeteria style set-up. 7/11 store close by on Congress. Bus to airport close by.

Great location and fair rate

Located a few blocks from 6th street, whuch was perfect for me. Far enough away to be quiet and close enough to stumble home. I didnt like the mandatory valet parking for $13. Or the other guests' motorcycles waking me up. But overall, a good experience.

Good value for your money

The location of La Quinta Inn Austin Capitol is definately a plus. It is close to University of Texas Campus, Brackenridge hospital and ofcourse the famous 6th Ave in downtown area. The rooms have fresh painted walls, the rug was ok and the bathroom clean. The only drawback is the front desk help who seem uninterested on anything outside the hotel - Locations of the nearest eateries, bus schedules etc.
