Stayed at this Super 8 during the Formula 1 event. Not a bad location, within a 15 minutes walk to the heart of the action downtown. Stayed in two separate rooms during this stay.

Attractive rooms, recently redecorated with a retro vibe and large prints of the Capitol Building over each bed. Super cute, clean, and close to everything. Walk to Franklin's BBQ and other east Austin & downtown Austin spots. Downtown views in some rooms.

I travel on city business, with most reservations being made by our city Secretary. I have stayed in Austin many times using this type of registration with no issues. Not so here. They would not allow me to check in with the original reservation because it was made with a credit card that was not mine. This ha NEVER happened... More
