  • Group of friends

    Friendliness of the bar staff.

    The hotel was old and in need of a makeover. It looks like it hasn't been updated since the 80'S. It had a musty smell, the air conditioners were old and did not blow cold enough for 105 degree weather. The pool area was ok, but could have used some updating.

  • Group of friends

    The location was good and the staff were friendly. The shuttle into town was a great resource given the temperatures...way too hot to walk...and it meant that we didn't have to worry about finding a taxi or driving when looking around.

  • Older travelers

    staff was extremely cordial and resonsive to our concerns

    had to change room 3 times in 4 nights-first due to loud street noise and second because of water system failure. parts of building could use remodel and/or updating

  • Family with children

    Nice clean facility. Great location.

    Only one thing I would say was during my breakfast at the main dining area the service was alittle lax. Especially during the buffet time. I later found out that the cook was watching soccer and if no one was waiting in line he would go back to watch.

  • Older travelers

    The nearby lake makes the stay as natural as possible!

    Small size of an executive king room;

  • Older travelers

    The setting by the river (town lake) was great.

    It was hell trying to find it unless you came off I-35 southbound. There is no sign for East St. off Chavez. GPS does not recognize the address either.The noise from the freeway was way too loud to sleep without ear plugs.

  • Single

    Free shuttle to airport and downtown locations.

  • Family with children

    Location, comfortable beds, microwave & refrigerator in room.

    I had to ask to be switched to another room as they gave me what I am assuming was the worst one the hotel had to offer. There was absolutely no view, other than giant pipes coming out of a rooftop. A minute piece of sky was visible. It was so gloomy, I would have left the hotel had I not been given another room.

  • Single

    The bed was absolutely amazing, the room was very clean and reasonable location - able to walk into downtown during the day,

    quite tricky to find room from parking garage - seemed to lack sign posts (or maybe that was just me)

  • Family with children

    Easy access to 35 easy to locate near walk/biking trail next to connivence store and on site restaurant

    Window without view of austin

  • Group of friends


    Just one comment and as a business owner I have to mention this... Upon my arrival, I was asked where I was coming in from and that was the nearby city of San Antonio. Now, I understand that there is a silly rival between these two wonderful cities...but again, as an owner of a day spa in San Antonio, I often get clients that come in from Austin to partake in my facilities and I have never made a negative comment about Austiin. It's unnecessary and unprofessional. That said, I came to Austin and had a wonderful time. Please ask your front desk to try and refrain from saying something negative about our great city. Home of the sa Spurs, the Alamo, the famous river walk and friendly possible people like me.

  • Family with children

    Convinent location for college football game , free parking and included breakfast, friendly staff and comfy beds and great air conditioner!!!

  • Group of friends

    Location is all. However the parking garage looked over the lake. You would think the hotel would.

    Not worth $210.00 a night. The a/c was out the first night, The facet in bath was very loose and moved around the counter top, the microwave went out, The bathroom door knob was loose, and the floor stayed wet between the beds. ????

  • Group of friends

    Nice senic view of the lake & surrounding area

    There was only two of us who stayed in a room with double beds but upon arrival I found that my room rate included free breakfast but the coupon showed for 4 people rather than two. I was charged for two extra persons each day for breakfast during my two day stay

  • Group of friends

    The shuttle service is fantastic- they will pick you up from the airport as well as take you around downtown anywhere you want to be. Beautiful lake view. They are very friendly and accomodating.

    We had a fantastic stay.
