Thank you so much for choosing our Holiday Inn Austin Town Lake. We are extremely appreciative of your detailed feedback. When people come to Austin, they should be greeted with a warm, enthusiastic welcome. It breaks my heart to hear that you didn't get that kind of hospitality from us. Exceptional customer service is one of our biggest priorities, and it's something we continually strive to improve. I hope we'll have an opportunity to welcome you back and show that we love and appreciate our guests!

Good location with view of the lake. The front desk gentleman, Awbrey, was not very pleasant.

Location was great but hard to drive in to from freeway? View from pool was beautiful. Don't like sliding bathroom door. But other than that it was perfect?

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave detailed feedback! We love hearing that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to be able to welcome you back soon! Next time, you may wish to ask for a room in our "North Tower" since those rooms have traditional bathroom doors. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Room was very small and compact. Shower head was below eye level and I’m only five foot eleven. The rooms were very HOT! We tried placing the temperature to 65 degrees but the ac unit barely let out any air. Listed complaints at checkout but all they could do was give me a breakfast voucher for my inconvenience due to me booking room through Travelocity!! They told me the hotel could not do anything..

Nice hotel, could use some updating and refinishing. The shower head needed to be cleaned and water temp was unstable. I also didn't like that the bathroom was right next to the door. All of the staff was absolutely amazing and accommodating. Plenty of amazing restaurants near by and a shuttle to take you there if it is within 2 miles of the hotel. They also shuttle to and from the airport. They had a very good breakfast buffet as well but it was the same everyday. Would have been nice to have variety. The drinks at the bar were over priced as well. Overall I would highly recommend staying at this hotel if you are in Downtown Austin.

I love a room with the lake view, I just wish the windows were clean. The elevator was being serviced so we had to use the service one! I just recommend cleaning that area up a bit. I like using this hotel because of the location and the amenities. And we ordered food at the bar and had bugs flying all around our food like giant fruit flies!
