            The staff is very courteous, friendly and accomadating.Our room was very clean and comfortable. I was surprised that my husband and I both were asked to give our ID and a copy of both was made.I put the room on my credit card. Not sure why my husband was asked to give his also. Could you answer that question? Also, when we used our GPS system we were told the hotel is off of 35 when it really is located off 290. Hwy 290 isn't mentioned at all on your directions. You may want to tweek the directions for out of towners who aren't familier with Austin. Thank you:)

            The price

            You really get what you pay for because this is a really cheap motel in disguise. Those pictures online are really deceiving.We had complained about our room not cleaned and instead of remedying the situation, the staff resorted to a baseless phone argument with us. We also didn't have enough towels and the blankets looked really old. Their breakfast was horrible beyond description.To sum it up, it is not worth paying over $50 to stay in this hotel because you can get way better at that price at a different hotel. This was the worse experience I've ever had in a hotel and wouldn't recommend it for anyone unless that all your $ can afford.

            Okay complimentary breakfast.

            Unfortunately, the guy in the room next to ours was making an awful lot of noise and kept on wailing Mariah Carey's "Hero" after 3am in the morning. First call to the reception did not result in anything. However, after my second call he got told off by the staff and finally stopped.

            The kind lady at the front desk took great care of us; at one point I actually spilled my soft drink over the counter onto the Inn's phone- she was so understanding. She ( I regret not being mindful enough to remember her name) treated us as though we were family, with care that was tangible. Unlike so many "affordable" motels, where I have been so obviously handled like just another number.Nothing outlandish about our stay here, it's just nice to be treated with a personal touch in such an impersonal industry.

            The staff was friendly, attentive and proactive. The room was very clean. There is an ihop right next door which has excellent service and great food (I actually ate breakfast there the next morning, instead of the one offered at the motel...see "What I didn't like"). Good access to two major arteries on the north side of Austin, 290 and I-35. Many nearby restaurants and shopping.

            When I first arrived to check in, the clerk told me that no King/ Smoking room was available (even though this is what I booked). The manager came up later and said that one was available. As I entered my room, I noticed that the cleaning staff had just left the room (this was at 3:30pm) and only half the motel had been cleaned (assuming that they started at one end and worked their way down). One single worker per floor. They really needed 4, based on the total number of rooms. The television only had 4 viewable channels, two of them in spanish. The rest were just snow on the screen. No general television guide in the room, but there was one for hbo (one of only four channels that could be viewed at all). Both electrical outlets in the dressing area were not functional and had char marks where it looked like something shorted out when plugged in. The ironing board cover was loose and wrinkled badly. I witnessed a drug deal take place in the parking lot during the early evening. Lots of noise and loud rap music coming from a room on the lower floor below me that continued until about 3am. They advertised breakfast being served in the morning, but it consisted of just coffee and waffles (which you had to cook yourself). The only available newspapers in the morning was usa Today, but not the local paper, which I found odd.

            It was clean and comfortable for the value. My only complaint was that no extra toilet tissue was in the room, except for the box of tissues came in handy. Breakfast should be extended to at least 11:00 AM instead of 9:30. I would stay there again. I chose the facility because of a very late flight arrival, instead of being in the car for a 2 1/2 hour drive at that hour.

            Breakfast ending too early and, not enough of toilet tissue in the room.

            Good value for the price. Lobby, dining room and hotel room was clean. There was some swelling of the baseboard around the bathtub where water has splashed. I got the room with a king size bed and there was still a good amount of room to relax in the recliner chair provided. I made a last minute reservation thru the net and the paperwork was already laying on the counter when I arrived about 30 minutes later. Recommend the hotel, right next door to ihop with quich access to I35.

            Hotel can be difficult to find if you are not familiar with the city.

            It was close to our business location

            I asked for a non smoking room bc my wife and I our non smokers and she's pregnant and gets sick very easy when comes to the smell of smoke, the staff behind check in desk seemed very unprofessional and unorganized, and when we asked for a different room they had non available... I will never come back

            For a budget hotel with little else but rooms and parking spaces, I really liked the "extras"! Having these things make a week long stay very nice: In the room I had free wireless, a desk and lamp, a small refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, ironing board and iron, tv, and clock radio with wake up alarm. The bath room counter was granite. The pillows on the bed were generous. The room was clean! Laundry facilites were available. Continental breakfast bar and free parking were also appreciated.

            I'got sale price $45 per night and let me say that it's much better than hotels which are 2-3 times more expensive!!! Plus free breakfest+free parking near your door+towels+toiletries+free Wi-Fi!!! For that price! Excellent!!!

            It's not in downtown, of course, but 7 min by car or 20 min by bus and you're there!

            I read the reviews prior to booking and was a little Spectacle, but once we arrived I had a different view the hotel surroundings was great an Ihop right next door which was great for a late snack or something to pick on, the highway 35 was only 1 to 2 min away which led to downtown and sixth street the small shopping mall and other venues, the bed was amazing!! comfortable and yes very clean the staff was friendly and breakfast was good also..If I go back to Austin which we are planning in the summer we are staying here the price was great!!! AGAIN!!!

            The staff was friendly and very accommodating. Breakfast items were fresh and well stocked. I totally agree with the other positive reviews of this Austin inn and will recommend this place, definitely, to all I know. Thank you, specially to Joanna, for making my family feel welcome after a long and tiring road trip.
