First they wouldn't accept my Windom Rewards even when I gave them the paperwork with the number on it. Once I got into my room on my AARP card I was walking around the room with my white sox on and after about an hour I noticed the bottoms were BLACK. Have washed them two times and it never came...

Went to Austin for business and pleasure, both of which required me to be downtown. Because the Austin marathon was going on (pleasure), downtown hotels were really pricey. The Super 8 offered an excellent price and was a short walk from the start/ finish, just across the highway. Similarly close to the conference I had to attend. While the lobby... More

It may be the most central hotel in Austin not charging exorbitant prices. If your room doesn't face highway, and most of them do NOT, you will have a very comfortable sleep there. It is quiet and safe there. The staff at the reception is always helpful and friendly. It is a typical motel, with motel furniture and motel breakfast.... More

We spent one night at Downtown/Capitol super 8. This was our first stay at any Super 8 chain. We were a little hesitant to stay there due to negative reviews but found it to be okay for one or two night stay. We called ahead and requested a quieter room which was provided on arrival. Amelia, or Amora (sorry I... More

Closer to the Austin "action" than I imagined. Nice front desk staff. Aside from a malfunctioning refrigerator, no problems. Room was comfortable. Price was way good. I didn't use the pool but it looked nice, quite large.

I spent two nights here and the television didn't work, the phone didn't work, and the alarm clock wouldn't work. The manager would not accommodate for anything and wouldn't even speak to me in person. He sent the clerk to speak to me who just walked into my room unannounced with his key and said that it was the cable... More

Needed to get away for a day so I got a cheap room for a night. Big mistake, huge. I started itching once in bed. I thought maybe they used cheap laundry soap and it was the sheets. Well, the next morning I woke up covered in bumps that ended up being bites. BED BUGS. I was horrified. If that... More
