When returning to my room at midnight. I had to wait at the front desk to ask for an extra pillow while one staff member was help another guest and another employee was behind the counter but did not even acknowledge I was standing there. Alison the bathtub was not as clean as I would like.

I read a lot of negative reviews of this hotel so I was nervous to stay here but all-in-all it was a fine experience. I stayed in a room on the 4th floor, farthest away from the highway, so the noise level was not bad. There was some weird party in the parking lot by some guests that was odd but I couldn't hear it from my room and it didn't disturb my slumber. This hotel is definitely dated and doesn't have bells and whistles at all (no breakfast, low-end shampoo/conditioner combo) but it was just fine for a place to stay near Austin that was less expensive than all of the other nearby options. The front staff was polite and nice. There was one night (out of six) where I didn't get my shampoo replaced, but the front desk was quick to get me what I needed. No frills and old hotel but no major issues. I checked for bed bugs upon arriving and found no evidence of them in my room. It was a suitable place to stay during my week long business trip.

Nice hotel along our path to a wedding

Pros: Customer service and location
Cons: Needed more help at front desk - lots of check-ins with only one staff person (but she handled it well and fast!)
Location: Lots of shopping and restaurants, easy drive to capitol and UT
Friendly atmosphere, very clean. Would stay here again.

Unfortunately, this hotel has been run down over the years. I have stayed here four times previously with great reviews. This time I woke up to bed bugs crawling all over the bed!! Staff was very courteous and quick to initiate a refund. However, it was a traumatic experience prompting me to change hotels immediately during my trip and throw out all luggage. Again, wonderful staff- terrible conditions!!! Would never stay here again sadly.
