Don't stay here unless you do not mid a dirty room. When we first checked in we had to change rooms because there was hair and red stuff on the bathroom wall. The wall plugs would not charge our phones. The only thing that was good was the hospitality breakfast and wine and cheese in the evenings.

Not sure why we paid so much for this "hotel", which reminded me more of a hostel. Yellow appliances, dingy carpet, peeling paint, 20 year old furniture...very strange. I do not get it. All I can say good is that there were yummy complimentary refreshments during happy hour. There are many hotels to choose from in Austin, TX for the...

The place was old but well-kept. They were upgrading some rooms when we were there. For a price of a hotel room, you get a suite with a kitchenette, 1 bedroom and living room with a fireplace. A decent size for the prize. However, the kitchen badly needed an update. The coil-type stovetop in our room can barely heat water....

This place used to be an apartment complex so the suites, are really suites. With separate bedrooms, living room and small kitchen with full size fridge, stove etc. The rooms are clean. You can tell they are not new but everything is well maintained. Breakfast is really very nice. Unlike most complimentary breakfasts they offer to custom make eggs, etc....

This is an old apt complex changed to hotel with a new twist of natural kick. We had two bed room apt at a price of one hotel room. Old and clean. We saw the microwave that was 50 years old but still working. Food service in breakfast was great. House is surrounded by nature. Trees, plants, fruits etc. I...

My bff and I stayed at the Habitat Suites for 3 nights as we needed to be close to Bee Cave Road. Hotel offered free wi-fi, free parking, free breakfast and complimentary cocktail snacks and drinks.

Had a lovely big suite. The breakfast was the best we have tasted for a while - all organic, healthy food. Locally sourced. Made to order. Lovely relaxed happy hour in the evening. Very pleasant staff.

Our group stayed in adjoining rooms over Thanksgiving--3 nights. The rooms resemble 1 and two bedroom apartments repurposed into a hotel. The rooms are indeed large with a full kitchen and living room. the rooms were cleaned and serviced each morning. The grounds are spacious and away from any traffic noise. A cook to order breakfast was served each morning....

We had 3 nights here and it was excellent. The suite is spacious and had a large fridge/freezer which was good for chilling the beer. The environment is quiet and secluded and belies the (sub)urban location. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fine and the evening wine and cheese pleasant enough. So no real negatives. The location is...
