I got this room at a great price through Priceline, and what a deal! My husband accompanied me as we were spending an extra night in Austin to enjoy the city. The hotel itself was a little aged, showed a little wear and tear, but our stay was wonderful. The staff is friendly and helpful, we arrived several hours early...

This property is amazingly poor, despite being a national chain. We did not choose to pay the additional $30 for a view of the lake, but maybe we should have. We walked off an elevator into a hallway, noting that the elevator doors were without paint (2nd floor). We were right on, I tell you, right on the interstate, and...

Thanks you for taking a few moments to relay comments on your stay. We regret that we did not live up to your expectations and appreciate your input. I just met with our engineer to assure that the swath of paint on the second floor elevator door will be redone. Although we’re roughly 175 feet from the interstate, It can...

Thanks for your kind comments on our staff, location and hotel. You said it all. We’ll actually be getting better this fall as we start a renovation that will update the entire property. Come back and see us again soon. Although we’ll have a new look, we’ll still be in the same great location .

We went down for a wedding and a short girls getaway. The hotel is very convenient to downtown. The room was nice. The bathroom situation does not allow for two different dressing locations so if you aren't really comfortable dressing in front of others, this is not the place for you. The toilet and shower are in a VERY small...

We arrived around 7 and Parker in the side of the building. Once we got to the desk we checked in and tried to find our room. We didn't know there was two different towers and spent some time looking for our room which ended up being on the other side of the building. Besides that, room was clean and...

Thank you for your positive comments about our hotel. We’re glad you enjoyed your stay. We have both surface parking and a 5 level parking garage. The elevator to the garage is directly across from the South Tower elevators. Although this may seem confusing at first, it should be an easy route to guest vehicle. I’ll share this with our...

This hotel is walking distance to downtown by the lake! The breakfast is tasty and has a lot of choices for that amount. Helpful staff! I was looking for slippers in the room though and they did not have any :-)! They have a FREE shuttle to and from the airport!

Thanks for your kind comments about our staff. They really are a true asset and exemplify the kind of Texas hospitality we strive to provide to all our guests. Yes our location is great. It’s truly the best of both worlds with our back door on the lake and easy access to downtown a short walk from our front door....

Thanks for taking the time to comment on you stay. Although we weren’t able to provide you with a restful stay, we appreciate you business. Some guests are sensitive to the sound from the highway so we try to accommodate requests for a quiet room. Most properties will have rooms that are noisier than others. We installed double paned windows...

Thanks for your comments. We appreciate your positive comments on our staff and facility. We are indeed planning to update the facility and you noticed one of the initial upgrades, the pillows.

Great Location. Close to the Running Trail and Rainey Street. Amanda was very helpful at check in. For extra $10 you could get an upgrade to higher floors with better views to TownLake. Room was great. Luz at housekeepers was very helpful as well.

Thank you for your comment and for staying with us. Our location definitely has its benefits. We’re close enough to downtown to enjoy all the hot spots but far enough away to allow us to offer free parking and put you right on the hike and bike trail. And yes, Rainey Street has blossomed into a full fledged entertainment area...
