Reviewed 4 August 2011

I took my daughter's softball team up there last month for the national softball tournament and we stayed at this hotel. I was not sure what we were going to be getting for the price. We were presently surprised. The rooms & grounds,were very clean. The pool is awesome. We had two cars broken into the first night there. They only have security on weekends. I guesss the thieves know this.

Hello! Always nice having the softball teams return to the property. I am glad that you and your team had a nice stay with the exception of the cars being broken into! I hope the police were able to obtain some fingerprints and eventually catch these low lifes. I do thank you for submitting a survey online. Take care and we hope to see you soon for next years playoffs.

The hotel is located on 35, it is a 10 minute cab ride ($17) from Sixth Street, it is very convenient to get around since it's right off the freeway. I was able to look at two rooms since I had some friends staying down the hall, the ventilation in their closet/bathroom area was horrible (felt like a sauna, and the shower wasn't even on!), they didn't have a phone in the room and the bathroom door didn't lock. Ventilation in our room was much better, but we had issues locking our room door. The room itself is spacious enough, plenty of closet space, plenty of parking and the pool area looked nice (we had a pool view room). I would recommend the hotel based purely on price and the location if you are wanting to explore areas of Austin other than spending time in Downtown, if you want to spend more time in Downtown, then just pay the extra money for a centrally located hotel. I have been to Austin several times and have found that paying a bit extra is well worth it there.

Hello! Thanks for taking the time to leave a survey from your recent visit with us.
We certainly will improve upon the items you mentioned. The first building rooms are superior to the second building as they cost roughly $5-10 more per night. We are constantly making changes to the property to better please our guests. Thanks again-

Not fancy, very basic. But also quite comfortable and no problems to speak of. I have stayed here twice and the first time was just okay. The second time the front desk woman was really nice and called the room to check and make sure everything wa sokay. Little touches like that are really nice.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. Just in town for a quick jaunt through downtown, and a trip down to the San Marcos River for some swimming. This place was awesome for the price we paid! We are budget travelers, and I rely heavily on TripAdvisor reviews. After reading through the reviews, I thought we should take a chance on this place...so glad we did! It was clean, the staff was helpful, and it was just perfect for our needs. Good location, there are a few restaurants within walking distance, and we had a lovely, quiet stay. It's not luxury accomodations, but the bedding was nice, the sheets were newer, the towels were not theadbare, and most importantly, clean!...it was well worth the money we spent. We paid $35.99/night plus taxes...GREAT!

Expecting the worst after the occasional negative review, I was pleasantly surprised . First off, after arriving much earler than standard checkin time, I was given a room promptly. The room was perfectly clean and comfortable, especially considering the 100-degree heat wave. After checking in the front desk called to make sure everything was acceptable, which it was.
Make no mistake, this property is not long on amenities. Yes,the carpets are a bit worn,and perhaps the towels aren't as fluffy. But there is a spacious outdoor pool, the location is convenient, and the manager & staff make every effort to provide their guests with a positive experience.
If you want to pay $50 or $100 more for a "free" breakfast, an elevator or a better public computer, go ahead. But for the price, you can't beat this facility.

Room Tip: Rooms in front or near the pool maybe noisy, ask for one in back or on the side.

We stayed at this hotel twice during one week in July...the first and last nights of our trip in the Austin area. The rooms apparently are hit & miss because the first night, our room along the first floor interior was fine, but the last night, we were placed in an outside room on the backside of the building and could not receive internet access. I had to walk outside to the interior courtyard to get a signal. Also our room did not have a remote control for the TV and when my husband tried o manually change the channel, the TV would turn off. So we went to call the front desk and NO PHONE! Then I took a shower and was disgusted by the mold on the walls & ceiling of the shower. This might have explained the odor of the room in general. Will not take another chance on the inconsistencies of this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room along the interior poolside (as close to their router as possible).

Hello! Thanks for taking the time to submit an online review of your second stay. I do apologize that the second stay was not an enjoyable as the first stay. The room type you selected on your second stay is the least expensive room type we offer and does not come with a micro/fridge. I will certainly see who was responsible for inspecting your room as many things were missed in the inspection process! Thanks again for your input, always appreciated-
