This facility was dirty and unkempt. There was trash just out of cans and open outlets with wires sticking out. The TV channels did not work, my coffee pot was missing since day one (even though I told them day one they never brought one), my room key had to get reset every time I left the room because it would stop working. There is so much more wrong.

Want a roommate? Bugs will fulfill your wishes

Pros: The price was reasonable but after staying there, it wasn't worth it.
Cons: The staff, cleanliness, and extermination. Bathtub was filthy. Carpet needs to be replaced; white socks were black after walking down the hall.
Location: Only slept there, was there for a death in the family and thought it would meet my needs, I was wrong.
Chose the cheapest king bed room, turns out it was a smoking room...my mistake. The room wreaked of cigarette smoke as if I was sleeping in a giant ashtray. Asked to changed rooms the next day, took over an hour to grant my request. The new room had ants crawling around the bathroom...disgusting. Microwave didn't work, coffee maker didn't work, and one of the lamps wasn't plugged in. The staff moves slower than molasses. The printer for the business computers didn't work. Breakfast buffet was adequate if you could find the person responsible for making eggs and waffles. Mentioned to the staff that they were out of milk and the person seemed upset that he had to refill it. Location is in a sketchy part of town but there was a security guard present in the hotel at night....hmmmm. Would not recommend this hotel at all.

Affordable and great location

Pros: Staff friendliness, fresh breakfast
Cons: Facilities need some updating (specifically around showers) and also hotel should be cleaned more regularly
Location: Just north of the I-35 split; less than 10 minutes from downtown Austin. Plenty of restaurants nearby and easy access to all of Austin.
This hotel is not the nicest in terms of facilities, but the staff do their best to ensure that you enjoy your stay and are helpful beyond your average hotel.

Both bad and good.

Pros: Bed and room climate.
Cons: Water pressure. Lobby comfort/temperature.
Room itself was clean. Bed, pillows comfortable. Shower was just a trickle of water at best. Lobby and rest of building was hot and humid. Exercise room was out of order. Just a vending machine available for a drink or snack. First night was quiet except for the pigeons living on the small balcony outside of window. AC would drown out though. Second night they put several people next to me that were noisy and even tried opening the door between my room and theirs. I had to turn AC down so it stayed on to drown them out. I like using stairs instead of elevator, but the only available stair was all the way at the end of the building...not even close to where the rooms were. I would get up early to go eat breakfast and the one person on duty at the front desk was sound asleep in the chair. Since I had to be somewhere early I had to eat breakfast out as they didn't serve the continental breakfast early enough on the weekend. So I can't comment on the food. If I have to come to Austin again next year I will most likely choose a different hotel.

Okay price, okay quality .

Pros: Fridge,heated pool.
Cons: Some of the staff was frustrated at customers. Please don't have clogged drains. Softer towels if possible.
Location: Ramen Tatsuya, Asian food, 10 min away from UT.
It was a okay price and has a heated swimming pool, but it's in an older condition. Our particular room's bathtub couldn't drain well, so the staff switched us to a different room. Also, the breakfast food would run out towards the end. We liked that there was a fridge in our room! Overall, it's okay for the price you pay.
