This hotel was what you would expect for the price. The staff was friendly but immediately when I opened the door to the room, there was a smell of cigarettes and this was a non-smoking room. When I turned on the AC, there was a musty smell which overpowered the cigarette smell and after it ran for a while, I...

The staff was friendly enough but that wasn't enough for me to stay there again.....ever. We had loads of crickets in the bed, luggage, and clothes. Before leaving we had to go through our stuff to make sure we didn't bring anything home. It is not the best of areas and parking there as awful. The last night I was...

I want to apologize about the crickets issues you had while you were here. It is a cricket season in central Texas. We see crickets everywhere. We do everything in our power to make sure they are dead and does not bother any of our guests. At times, it is very difficult to manage them as they come in big...

On Friday the man at the front de was very rude to members of my party! He was loud and argued about a key. Will not stay there again Was treated like gum on the bottom of his shoe. Other front desk workers were helpful and courteous. Smoking area was in a dark corner.

Very reasonably price, and nice rooms. Don't let the location put you off. Very happy with the hotel, will return. Plenty of food options, shopping not too far away. Did not eat the breakfast due to not waking up earlier enough, so I can not comment on that.

Needed a location close to the UT Balcones Research Center. All other options in the area were well over $100 except for here. Turned out to be an excellent choice. Large room, clean, etc.. If you just need an overnight bed in this area of Austin, its a fine choice. Several decent restaurants walkable across the street.
