Someone knocked our door at 1:00 and he asked to open the door for parking ticket. We were afraid a lot. I did not open the door and he walked away after 5 minutes later. My wife and me woke up and afraid a lot. I am so unpleased.

I did not take advantage of the complimentary breakfast. It would have been nice to be able to make my own waffles using batter that's ready made by the staff or scrambled eggs. There was no protein for breakfast; just a lot of carbs. I liked that there was fruit and muffins that I could take on the go since...

Great Location -- state highway 2222 is a beautiful road; the motel is directly located on a crossroad between Houston/Austin and Dallas/SanAntonio, so I find it an excellent place to stay. Good Price

The staff was simply the best. Very nice and helpful. The room was clean. And it was stocked with everything that we needed. The beds were comfortable as well. A big plus is that the area felt safe and there was not much, if any, outside loud noises or disturbances.

Needs to close down and do an entire remodel. Floors, walls, doors, key locks, etc.. everything is old, dingy and depressing. I stay in La Quinta properties frequently and this is by far the worse one in the chain that I have stayed in.

We stayed at this La Quinta to be close to the capital for the Woman's March. The staff was wonderful and really welcomed all of us with graciousness and courtesy.

I would highly recommend this place. Our room was clean and comfortable. This is the best you can get for your money. It is just a few miles away from Austin downtown. On my next trip to Austin, this is certainly the place I will go back to.
