Nice, friendly hotel in Austin with lots of little perks like a full breakfast, free happy hour and parking. Fairly central in location, the suites are roomy apartment style rooms. The breakfast was awesome and the happy hour was a nice extra. Staff were super friendly. Hotel was quiet. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. Pool is small but lovely. Definitely rocks a family vibe. It was reasonably priced; a short drive to the university area and downtown.
A couple of small details which prevents me from a five star rating.... First, the rooms, while extremely clean, are dated. Very dated. The carpet is worn, the shower and toilets are old (ours kept running) and the cabinets in the kitchenette were starting to delaminate. The bed is hard. (This didn't really bother me..I like a very firm mattress but I can see it being an issue for others.) The location is weird and it almost necessitates a car. There is nothing in the immediate vicinity to walk to for food/drinks. In fact the only thing close by is Sugars, which we found out was a strip club. :) it is located across from a deserted mall, which kind of gives the location an eerie feeling. There is a train station near by but the metro hours are weird (full service on fri/sat, service until 6 pm on weekdays, no service on Sundays). The bus stops nearby are fine during the day, but in the evening strike me as a little dodgy.
All in all, however, an excellent stay. Would stay there again and would recommend to others.
