"Good location and competitive rate."
Overall the stay was fine... although I was disappointed to find that after specifically booking a smoking room on the website this is actually a smoke-free property. Other than that small inconvenience the hotel was as advertised.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a motel instead of a hotel. The rooms have outdoor entrance and didn't look safe!Genuine Expedia guest review
"La Quinto = SLOW WiFi"
As has been true at every La Quinta I have stayed at, WiFi is TOO SLOW! Very irritating since this trip was an apt searching trip. Had to use my phone to search. Even routine sites take MINUTES to load. Every other hotel I've stayed at was fine. What do they know that La Quinta doesn't?Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Break-in of Vehicle"
Hotel was nice, staff was great, room was clean. With three security guards standing out front, I would have never guessed that my vehicle would be broken into overnight. I found out that the Austin police department was very nice, something I should not have had a reason to have known. So, a $139 stay is going to cost me at a minimum of around $4000 […] for vehicle repairs, and replacement of my stolen property. Disappointed to say the least.

Everything ok, bathroom terrible.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable Clean Room a Little Outside the City"
It was a comfortable room and clean, though not a whole lot available on foot in the immediate area and relied on short cab rides. It was fairly close to the area of downtown where my friends were staying so it lessened the cab rides and costs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"armpit of La Quintas"
The maintenance was very poor. The electric outlets didn't work, the door to the outside was old and had no sealant so you could see daylight from around the door, the bathroom tile was old and cracked. The cleaning staff was really loud and started shouting at each other as soon as they arrived. The breakfast was packages of fake waffles. They shut […] off the water in the middle of my shower. The street noise is awful, especially considering the state of the door. You could hear everything going on in the rooms around you. Don't stay here!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
When I got into room, I uses the restroom then I went to wash my hands and noticed small pieces of hair all over sink and on counter. I used wash cloth and cleaned it. Then I noticed some mark on the door when I looked at it closely I realized it was blood stain. It looked ugly. I was tired and didn't want to change rooms so I stayed in that room. However […] I called the front desk to inform of hair and blood stain. The receptionist, instead of asking me to hold, she started to talk to another customer whilst I was talking on phone to her. Iby this time I was angry and hung up. She never called back to apologize. I used to manage a motel and I thought for a franchise this was not up to its standards. I have stayed at much better la quintals before. Sorry cannot give good points to this particular one. I am surprised they are passing their inspections! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Only stayed one night but the room was clean and modern. Outside of the hotel was old and did not give the appearance of being a clean place to stay. We were pleasantly surprised upon enteeing the room. This was one of the few moderately priced hotels in Austin. Would definietely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really old and worn down."
It doesn't matter how clean when everything is worn down. Walls have water damage and other issues near the floor but they think paint covers it! Just really in need if tearing down and starting over. Even the sign is half missing out front.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Arrived to find my paid for non-smoking room was not available, only smoking room available. My wife is allergic to cigarette smoke. Only solution was to be transferred to another La Quinta 40 miles away. I had reserved this hotel as it was close to the Austin Marathon start/finish & my wife could stay in the room until I finished. With the much longer […] drive that was not feasible. I was doing a 2 marathon weekend & with the extra time to drive to the other hotel lost rest time. As I was having my booking transferred at this hotel a pregnant lady found out she had also lost her non-smoking room and her only option was smoking. She had to go find another hotel. This is a stupid policy to allow someone to check into an already paid for room through hotels.com. I would hope in fairness policies can be set so this doesn't happen. If not, La Quinta certainly does not truly respect its customers. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just an overnight stay"
I had a pleasant experience. The check-in was quick, and the attendants were courteous. My room was very clean and comfortable. The area was fine, I didn't feel unsafe. So yes, I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We got a room at the very back of this motel and it was really sketchy. There was a group of men hanging out by our door until late. It didn't feel like a safe environment. The overall standards of this La Quinta were much lower than those at other La Quinta's I have stayed at.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Make sure you ask if the room has hot water"
No hot water ! Let the taps run for 30 minutes with no luck.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Highland Mall - Austin"
Great value for the money. Clean and comfortable. Friendly staff.Thanks!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"cheap but serviceable"
Place is getting old... good price for what it is. Serviceable but strains to the edge of not enjoyableGenuine Expedia guest review
Staff is wonderful! Close to the main freeway. Free yummy breakfast, with lots of choices! They are very accommodating as well. You can tell its a little older, but very clean, and bed was comfortable. Our bath tub water went down really slow, so that was not pleasant and when we called front desk no one answered :( but I would stay again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Value stay in central Austin"
This motel is nothing special but good value for a location in town. Our room was nice and clean. From the inside, it was as nice as many hotels that cost twice as much. 290N & I-35 is not the best part of town, but the location keeps it isolated from the surrounding neighborhood.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We found the price and location good and the beds were nice and firm. The decor is a bit outdated but that did not matter much to us...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
dirty tub ans sheets had spot on them although the bed was comfortable and was told it had full breakfast and it was very continitalGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I liked that it was only minutes from where I needed to be, but because the location is at the corner of two major freeways, the noise level is very high UNLESS you have the a/c on all night. The staff was very nice and prompt on all accounts both in the morning and at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK for the price/great location for UT visit"
Excellent location for UT visit. Price is OK for the quality and location. Lots of highway noise; ac cannot be put on "fan" mode for continuous fan noise to block out highway noise. Slept poorly due to this. Staff is very courteous.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent 3-star hotel 5 miles from downtown Austin"
Along with a few friends, I stayed at La Quinta for one night. We were satisfied with the hotel. The rooms were spacious and clean. The continental breakfast was fine (exactly what you expect it to be). Overall, we had no complaints. It was a decent hotel at an affordable price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff very friendly. Good variety for free breakfast. Very convenient location. Only complaints are layout is a little odd and parking lot is in need of some repairs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I think the room was overpriced for the quality of it. I've booked other hotels through this website for half the price that were 10 times better than the room I got at La Quinta.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was very clean and spacious and included both a fridge and a microwave. The beds were very comfortable and had sheets on both sides of the bed blanket, a feature often found only in very upscale hotels. The price of the room and the fact that breakfast was included (bagels, cereal, oatmeal, waffles) made this an excellent bargain. The motel […] is right off the highway, making it very convenient. It wasn't important to us, but the hotel does sit right in the middle of a parking lot, so if you're looking for lush landscaping, this isn't the place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was in need of a remodel, especially the bathroom. The surrounding neighborhood was run down and the parking lot was used to cut through to another street. When we returned from visiting our daughter around 10 p.m., the people in the hotel parking lot made me very nervous. I would not stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Room for a Great Price"
staff was friendly and the rooms were very clean. next trip to Austin, we will stay here!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old and rundown - try another LaQuinta"
This location is old and run down, and the neighborhood is not the best. The room was severely outdated, especially the bathroom. I was glad I was only there for one night. Plus, it is hard to find if you aren't familiar with Austin's highways. Although when i called to get directions, the staff were very helpful and kind. When I arrived i was greeted […] with the same kindness. The hotel room had that fake perfume smell, which if you have allergies, isn't very healthy. By the morning, it had a moldy smell and I woke up with clogged sinuses. When I went to enter my room, there were people hanging around in the parking lot drinking, which seemed odd for a hotel. I am not sure if they were guests or not. They seemed a little too comfortable to be travelers. Throughout the night you could hear various noises and highway sounds. Breakfast was packaged goods in the dismal lobby. Not too enticing. The only thing positive, was that the location was close to downtown Austin and the airport. There are several other La Quinta hotels in the area and I would recommend staying at one of them instead of this one. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"An awful experience with no answer. DON'T GO"
We had an awful experience when we were preparing our staff to do the check out. We realized that our backpack was stolen from our room. The room was tidy and only the backpack was missing. It had our personal laptop (with years of information and pictures!), a movie from a Library and a perfume. When we realized that the backpack was missing, we went […] to the front desk. They didn't give us the attention required for this type of situation. After doing a report, the General Manager told us that only us and the housekeeping woman entered in the room. It was so strange!!!! The General Manager defended her. We had to call the police to register what had happened. Otherwise, the General Manager would have deleted the robbery from his records. We travel a lot and this is the first time that our belonginds were stolen from a hotel!! It was a terrible experience, specially because we were in Austin celebrating our first year anniversary. The hotel didn't do anything about our case. It's unbelievable!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel for everyone"
Great staff , very helpful when needed. There's breakfast available in the mornings and I love the location.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was ok if you are just looking for a place to get a nights sleep but it was old. It had been painted but not updated. Like I said go for a quick nights sleep but not a place you would want to go for relaxing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for the price!"
A bit disappointed at this facility.Granted, great strategic location just off the Interstate and close to downtown; however, Since we were driving to drop off my son at the University, we had a well packed car.I ended parking in front just so that the night clerk could keep an eye on the car because I didn't feel it safe parked on the back.Looks and […] feels like a renovated Motel 6, sad to say, not at the same level as other La Quinta's i've stayed. Good breakfast (although the waffles are Smucker's frozen which you pop on the toaster, not the make-yourself kind). Beds were comfortable and the room very big, not pretty, but big, clean, and comfortable beds, also free WIFI. If you look past the "looks" and concentrate on the "value".. really good value indeed!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The beds were extremely comfortable. I don't think my husband could have stood upright in the shower, as the ceiling was kind of low. The bathroom was clean, but the edges of the carpet were not (dead cricket behind night stand, found while trying to plug in the phone). The front office staff was very welcoming, but breakfast was pretty minimal. It […] was fine for a stop on the way, but would not stay there for an extended time.

We would like to thank he graveyard shift for their excellent service when we arrived late on August 8. They tried to put our two rooms by each other and accommodated our non-smoking request. They also came to check the crooked beds we've had. They also gave us extra toiletries enough for 5 people in the two rooms. Thank you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

For the price, the Howell lived up to our expectations. It was not too big, it was clean and because there was not too much glitz and glamour the price was just right.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old Run Down Hotel in Good Location"
Room I stayed in was in clear need of updating. Sheets and towels were clean, but bathroom looked like original from the 1970's. AC did not cool room adequately. There were no amenities like an in room refrig. Room was quiet even though I was right next to Freeway. Very convenient location, but several more modern hotels were right next door.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
