Nice modern hotel with recent updates. The hotel has a small cafe style eatery for breakfast and light dinners. Also serves beer, liquor, and wine until 10pm. Rooms are spacious with firm beds. The elevators are a bit too slow. Pool looks well kept. Great place to stay.

Booked a hotel room through Hotels.com and when we arrived at the hotel our room with two beds for three people only had one bed. All we received were excuses as to how they were not responsible with third party reservations and they were too full to accomodate a room with two beds. The customer service front desk person was...

Really hard to get to off the highway to find this place. Not near downtown. Desk clerk could have been on court-appointed community service. He was trying to be professional but just not pulling it off, unable to give help or suggestions or basic directions, or offer a map. Deer in headlights. Bar staff was young and eager but slooooow...

Kayla at the front desk was the only saving grace. She was so polite and efficient! The rooms are big, but show a lot of wear and tear. The water pressure was very low and the toilet barely flushed. There was an obvious paint job gone wrong in our bathroom, which isn't a huge deal, but makes the appearance tacky....

After not having very good luck with hotels lately, it's nice to find something like this Courtyard that made me very happy!

I booked this room as a Priceline 3 star deal for a five day visit to Austin. Location is ok, only a 5-10 minute drive downtown. Free parking is a plus. Check-in was quick and friendly, although when we went to the room we heard voices inside. Went back to the registration desk and they called the room and there...

Booked the room through Priceline and got a last minute deal. I was really pleased with the hotel staff, cleanliness, and decor. The room itself could have used more lights though. But a lovely stay overall.
