Google maps had us get off the freeway in what everyone says is the worst possible part of Austin - the hotel itself is off the 236A exit, NOT the "R" street filled with prostitutes and dealers. The guy at the front desk was very helpful and friendly when I called for directions. And that's about the only good thing I can say about this motel other than its proximity to downtown (~5 min on the 35), noon check-out and pet-friendliness (+$10, $50 deposit).
It looks like the motel from Breaking Bad. We had dead cockroaches in our room. There were hairs on the wall of our shower. Besides lamps, our room hadn't been updated since the 80's. Our chair was cheap, ripped and stained. The light switches were sticky. The outdoor walkway smelled like urine. The ice maker was broken. We went down for breakfast and it was a mess. No coffee cups, no coffee. You can make your own Texas-shaped waffle, though. The AC on high never cooled our room to our liking. All for $120 a night. Gross.
