It is an old facility. Probably the oldest La Quinta's I ever saw. Location is close to Univ which is a plus, but don't want more than the basics. Also, if a woman traveling alone, I do not recommend due to exterior doors. Not worth the price by far, but I was using rewards so cannot complain of price paid.

Reservations and check-in was smooth and easy. The room was very good for the one night stay. My wife and I usually book a hotel with an indoor pool but this was our first time with La Quinta. We were not satisfied with the out door pool, thats all.

Well first of all Jason and Renesha (sorry if I misspelled that) were awesome customer service front desk representatives. Formula 1 was in town and ALL the rooms around were $159-$330 a night and I was out of hours and just needed a room for the night. A very nice quaint, clean hotel and I got in for $57.00/night with... More

This La Quinta offered a comfortable stay for my wife and I, and was ideally situated for quick access to all parts of Austin. I will make future business and personal reservations with this site. Great job!

Being travel budget conscious, there in no compromise in service and/or quality at LQ University Area. Clean, fresh rooms, good service at an affordable price. LQ Returns benefits are an added value and incentive.

This is an older property with the rooms on the outside. No elevator and limited dog areas. They need to update, put in business man shower curtains, paint and shampoo carpets. I suggested certain conditions to the room that needed to be attended to before another guest could stay. This property is located at least 2 miles North of the... More

While this is a little run down and old looking, the service was exceptional, the bed VERY comfortable, and the breakfast quite satisfactory - and they didn't run out!! I would stay here again, but would like to see a little modernization and face-lifting. It was a great stay for the value. The staff is exceedingly friendly and helpful, which... More

Beds were comfortable. If you are only sleeping and showering, it is a descent place. 1 step above a motel 6. Not... More

This La Quinta is an old property that needs freshing and modernizing. Our room was large and clean but has seen better days. The staff was great and helpful and the location was good but a little noisy because of how close it was to the freeway. The price was good but there are many other choices in the area.... More

Stay was satisfactory, rooms were good and service provided by staff was excellent. They had fresh copy at front desk 24x7, morning break-fast was ok, but could have been better. Rooms were neat and clean, in general over all experience was good.
