We stayed in Austin during U.T. graduation week, and other hotels had very inflated prices, but this La Quinta was much more reasonable. Desk staff was very polite. Room was very basic but fine. The hotel is at a busy freeway intersection, so there is some noise outside at night. I saw a security guard on the grounds which was...

Good service and breakfast. The only thing that was bad was that the key would mess up and we would always get a new one. We stayed 3 nights but other than that it was good. Front desk lady was so kind to us when we buy snack or personal items. Would stay here again.

This La Quinta needs some TLC on both the outside and inside. The rooms were clean and the beds very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is right off I-35 and is only about 10 minutes to the downtown area. The breakfast was so so, pretty much a continental style breakfast with toast, bagels, and muffins.The...

Building is run down with dirty rooms and uncomfortable beds. We were greeted rather rudely clerk it was very apparent that work was not important. The only good thing was the location lots of restaurants nearby and right off 35. Not sure I would consider it in the university area.

If this was the first La Quinta I was to stay at, I would never stay with La Quinta again. The room was filthy, even a bug in my bed! The other guests appeared to be long-term and would drink all hours of the day and night outside, victimizing my girlfriend. This specific location an embarrassment to the La Quinta...

I stayed at this location twice already. I'm used to staying at the Hilton and Marriott hotels but decided to give La Quinta a chance and I was not disappointed. The room was clean, the bed sheets were clean and the bathroom was clean, and yes, it is an older hotel and you might find broken tiles in the bathroom...

Excellent place. I recommend it. It is not a super hotel, but has everything you need for short trips. Admitting pets in the rooms is the best La Quinta has. They should reward them for it. Very few hotels have that facility.
