Hotel is VERY noisy. One elevator (of two) was out of service. Exterior of building and hallways need maintenance. Yes, the location is good, but I would not go back.

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at LaQuinta Austin Capitol. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. LaQuinta Capitol is an older inn and I can't argue that it may appear a bit run down due to age. Despite the challenges we face operating an older hotel, we strive to maintain clean guestrooms with comfortable beds. And our staff strives for a warm, friendly and helpful guest experience. And, yes - there is a part on order for our elevator and I know it is very frustrating. We appreciate the time you took to share your concerns, and again, I am sincerely sorry that your stay was disappointing.

Thanks so much for being our guest and taking the time to post your rating. Without comments to elaborate on your stay, I am curious to know what might have gone wrong and what we could have done better. Despite the obvious challenges of maintaining an older property, our guest's impression and experience are no less important to us and we are disappointed that you seemed to find nothing redeeming about your stay. Feel free to reach out to me directly at any time to discuss further as we are always striving to improve our guest experience. Your loyalty is very important to us and I hope to have an opportunity to speak with you.

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at LaQuinta Austin Capitol. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. LaQuinta is an older inn and I can't argue that it may appear a bit run down due to age. We upgrade as possible and strive to maintain clean guest rooms with comfortable beds. I am saddened to hear that you were unhappy with your room. Most certainly this is not acceptable and will be addressed with our housekeeping staff to prevent future occurrences. We do offer refrigerators and microwaves in our upgraded rooms. I'm sorry you did not have an opportunity to change rooms. Our parking policy is clear and I can't emphasize enough how sorry I am that you received conflicting information. I will be looking into this to confirm that all staff are on the same page. Unless there is a price hold or a minimum length of stay in place during high capacity city events we are always able to provide military discounts on our room rates. The only other snag that would prevent this reduction by the front desk is if you booked your room through a 3rd party site. We cannot change rates once booked through outside sources. I can't say how you booked your room - but I hope this helps when planning trips in the future. We appreciate the time you took to share your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the future,

We hope that you were able to take advantage of our friendly valet service and that you enjoyed staying in the heart of downtown Austin....steps away from some of the best restaurants and entertainment the city has to offer. Thank you for being our guest!

This property is a disgrace especially at $200 a night. We didn't even stay there. We checked in and immediately checked out. There were fruit flies buzzing around the room, the air conditioning system was old and had a musty/mildew smell, hairs in the bedding like it had never been changed from the last guest and cockroaches in the shower. And the 12 yr old working the front desk could have cared less.

Yes, there are actually areas of the hotel which are quieter than others and we are glad that you found one of them, but even happier that our front desk agent Angel was able to make a difference in your experience. We hope to see you again soon! Chad M. Assistant General Manager
