Not family oriented

First of all the rooms were nothing like the pictures online. I didn't even stay so I lost out on money and went to stay at another hotel. The location was just bad. As soon as we went to look at our room, homeless people were asking for money, cigarettes, and beer... bad experience ....

It's not 5 star by any means but great bargain if you're just looking for a decent place to crash in Austin. Room was relatively clean yet dated. Continental breakfast was actually pretty good considering what the price of the room. Overall, I was pleased.

Room not very clean.

Pulled down the sheets and found dead bugs in the bed, and also bugs in the bathroom. Room was not very clean. Staff was friendly.

Great hotel for budget travelers

I recently went to Austin to look for a place to live while I attend UT in the fall. I stayed at Baymont because of the good reviews on the website. For the price, you really can't do much better (in the Austin area). The staff was courteous and helpful, free breakfast was provided (hard boiled eggs, cereal, pastries, etc.), room was clean when I arrived, shower was nice and hot. The location was tricky for me to get to at first, but it's along the 35, and there are great restaurants and bars on either side. My only complaint was some noise early one morning of my stay (loud music) and the free gym pass to Gold's Gym in place of a fitness center mentioned in the Guest Services book is no longer honored. The front desk clerk said it was a typo. Have it removed? All in all, great value and service from a sweet little hotel.

Terrible check in receptionist

The receptionist at check in time was rude. He was more preoccupied with counting coins and answering phones and ignoring customers waiting to check in. I am handicapped and asked if it was possible to get a room in the first floor and he gave us the attitude of take it or leave it. The person on the desk at 0600 hours, in the morning was totally nice and he made up for the person duri9ng our arrival.

Good Times in Austin

I went to Austin for a friends wedding and needed to find the cheapest hotel possible. I got lucky and found this one on summer clearance! So being that I only paid $100 for two nights I was a bit weary about what kind of hotel this would be. When I arrived, the lady at the front desk was so nice. She was very quick and told me breakfast would be served until 930 the next morning. This was a blessing because most hotels only serve til 8. Anyway, there was a Denny's next door-within walking distance. There was also a gas station, which made it super convenient. The room was perfect. And it was decorated so cute. It made the room feel "home-y" not really like a hotel at all. So I liked that. The pool wasn't huge, but just big enough for my 2 year old daughter and 13 year old brother to enjoy. Also, part of it was shaded so we didn't get that terrible Texas heat too bad. I didn't have any problems with "the wrong kind of people" hanging around this area. And there was little noise, other than a few police cars and ambulances...but that's to be expected in a big city. So overall it was a really pleasant stay. If I ever go back, I would really like to stay here again.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

The Highland Mall was less than a mile away, and although it looks crummy on the outside, it had really cute stores on the inside. We found some school clothes for my younger brother at a very decent price, and the food court was something different. Not just mcdonalds and pizza. I liked it!

Great on a Budget!

These are the things that you should know, no safe in room, you must walk to the lobby, thru outside for the conti. breakfast and the wireless was not so great. The staff was very friendly and it was a great location to get around the city in and it was great, maybe not so great for a single on the move

3.9 out of 5.0?????

Friendly and professional staff. It is an older facility (lots of caulk). The carpet was ragged and filthy.
