If you just want to sleep then this place is OK, if you don't mind the smell of cigarettes. When I booked the place I specifically asked for a non smoking room, but when we went in, the smell of smoke was obviously there, and there was a burn hole in one of the top sheets of the 2 beds.

When I originally checked in I was checked into a dirty room, but the workers in the lobby immediately gave me another room without a problem! Also allowed me to stay an hour after checkout. Located in a good area with plenty of restaurants around, right by the highway. Great place to stay in a pinch!

Hotel is located in central Austin off I-35 close to restaurants and fast food. Front desk staff was friendly and checked me in quickly. The room came with a microwave, refrigerator and coffee pot. The bed was okay to sleep on but creaked loudly. Cigarette burns were on the sheets and shower. I could not get any sleep because other...

OMG! This is the WORST motel I've ever stayed at. Staff need to be retrained! A bunch of IDIOTS work there. Rocio the housekeeping manager needs to be FIRED ASAP! She barged into my room and tried to throw me out. Telling me it was time to check out but I had one more night to be there. I tried...

The room was decent. The bathtub had paint chips coming off, the sheets had holes in it. The room needs a paint job... but like I said you get what you pay for. I wasn't impressed but wasn't disappointed. The staff were very nice. Good place if you are looking for an extremely affordable option.

Only stayed 2 nights. Room smelled like smoke, bad paint job, holes of varying sizes in the bathroom, generally a gross and run-down motel. Surprising because the facade looks quite new. Wouldn't stay again. They did allow me to check out early with refund after a family member had a health emergency though, so I appreciate that.

Staff was very good, attentive and friendly. Room was definitely so, so. Generally, it was shabby. The electrical outlet in the bathroom did not work and one had to be replaced (it was done while we were out). Hair dryer did not work well.
