What this hotel lacks in looks and much needed renovations, the front desk employees more than make up for. There were slight issues such as housekeeping not providing enough towels for the number of guests staying in our room, but that was quickly remedied by a call to the front desk. The overall cleanliness of the hotel and room could... More

I was visiting family in the Austin area and decided to stay in a hotel. I chose this one because it was close to where they lived. The staff was incredibly nice and went above and beyond. Every time I would leave or come back, they would address me by name. The room was very nice and comfortable and the... More

We ended up here because we needed a room on short notice. This place is great, the staff are super helpful, the rooms are clean and nice size. Overall I would recommend Red Roof plus. Pillows and bed could be better but we're acceptable.

Room was clean although it had not enough ventilation. Carpet and bath tub looked a little older. My room was located next to the back entrance and the maintenance room so I heard a lot of noise all night. Front desk was polite and helpful.Good place to stay for a few days.

I often stay at Red Roof Inns across the country when they are available. I find them a good value and nice accommodation. We did have a comfortable stay. However, I was a little disappointed in the property. The sink faucet was totally loose in the sink, a roll around chair was filthy at the junction of the seat and... More

The front desk was polite and extremely friendly. Although the motel shows signs of wear and tear, it was clean. If you are looking for a decent place to stay at an inexpensive rate in Austin, I recommend staying here.

We came into Austin earlier than we had expected. Karla at the front desk was very kind and helpful. She was able to promptly accommodate our needs and get us into a room prior to our scheduled check-in.

We arrived at the hotel early and was hoping to check in early. Karla was incredibly helpful and accommodating. Everything is very clean and easy access to central Austin. Would recommend and stay here again

I stayed for 5 days in September 2016, my room was nice and clean, AC worked great!!! 100° on 2 of the days. The staff was so awesome!!!✨ Pool was very clean too. Why I didn't give 5 stars is because of the activity going on around the hotel. Drug deals in the parking lot, prostitutes going in and out... More
