Rodeway Inn University / Downtown
Ranked #176 of 205 Hotels in Austin
Reviewed 2 April 2015

This hotel is on the lower end of the spectrum - not a place you would take your wife or girlfriend. It is a bare bones, low budget accommodation -- no frills, just a room with basic amenities (bed, tv, restroom, etc.) it is fine if you just need a place to sleep at a reasonable price; if you are looking for a high-toned hotel, this is not for you. I'm not saying it was dirty or unsafe, just a basic room with basic amenities. It is right on Interstate 35, so it's easy to hop on the highway and get where you need to go. And the room prices will not break your budget.

Room Tip: I would recommend getting a room farther away from the Interstate to lessen road noise.

I had a reservation months in advance. I was called the week of arrival and told they would not honor It, but I could have a room for $50 more--take it or leave it. When I arrived there after a 14 hr drive, I gave them my original reservation. I was again told it would not be honored. When I told the manager he was being unprofessional and using poor business practices but that I needed a room, he took my paperwork and went to a back room 15 minutes later he returned and angrily told me he did not have a room for me anymore. He also refused to give me back my reservation as he had trashed it. At the same time, he removed all business cards from the desk and refused to give me his name. Two other desk personnel refused to even speak to me. I am filing complaints with both Choice Hotels and the BBB. Stay far away from this place

Room Tip: Never consider this place

I made a reservation in this hotel for 5 nights, but did my check out after staying the first one, it was awful , smells so bad, needs a lot o maintenance, very old, noisy because is very close to the highway. Don't stay there.

Owner or manager double parks her luxury sports cars and thereby hogs parking on the crowded upper lot. She came off as very condescending during my conversations with her during check in.

Location is good if you want to walk around the city. The Ethiopian restraunt next door is tasty.

The room was ok, but I would have liked newer sheets on the beds. The bed and the bathroom were clean.

I have stayed here multiple times and will again in the future! I was a nursing student and needed to be close to St. David's Hospital (which is right next store, you could walk there!). It looks like a small, older, Mom and Pop Motel but, it will suit your needs nicely! It has a small parking lot and sits right next to I-35. I felt very safe every time I stayed there and that's important when I travel alone, I'm a scaredy-cat country girl. It is super clean, the shower and tub shine more than mine do at home! The carpet is updated, I can't stand hotels that make your socks dirty!

Every room I had came with a 4-cup coffee pot, a microwave and refrigerator. All of those came in handy for the long hours of studying. They had a work table, alarm clock and nice TV, those came in handy for late night hours of writing papers AND taking breaks!

No, the mattresses are not a new Serta Pillow Top, if that's what you need, it's not here. The pillows are nice and fluffy and the linens on the new side, all pluses for me! I'm not used to all the traffic noise but I put the AC on continuous fan and that drowned it out. The AC will freeze you out of there, I like it cold but at 60, it was chilly!

So, not sure if you want to plan a week and bring the family or, your just need what I needed within my price range but, it works for me and I'll be back. The location is perfect for downtown or anything to do with St David's, You're mid-town and can go North or South really easily.

Check it out, it's not the Marriot but if you want clean, safe and affordable this is it!

Room Tip: Only two stories with about 10 or 12 rooms on each floor. The rooms all seemed similar, no top pick...
