"Pretty solid"
Pretty nice if you know what you're getting in to. Smells like cigarettes but I didn't mind cause I smoke. Staff was friendly, plus there's a chevron right next door which is crazy convenient

"Adequate (but just barely)"
Much as one would expect for low price range. Bed was comfortable and shower was hot - the bottom line basics. Breakfast was poor compared to another in-town competitor. Not even yogurt or fruit. Minimal jelly and they forgot to put butter out for toast. Only one coffee carafe so long waits between pots. Ok. But only for minimal basics.

"Terrible Hotel. I would not recommend."
Nothing worked right in this hotel. The tv would only work if you used a pen cap to push in the button. The hair drier did not work. You could not use the computer or printer to print your boarding pass, the staff said it had been down for some time now. The door to go in the building at the end of the hall did not work. If more than one person took a shower the water was cold. The trash dumpster was picked up after 11 pm at night causing a lot of noise. They vacuumed the floors at night. There were multiple cigarette burns in the bedspread, mind you this was supposed to be a none smoking room. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Maybe if you were homeless this would be a step up from sleeping outside.

"Hotel had great location"
Hotel location was perfect for the wedding we were attending. There is a 7-11 next door which is convenient but assures strange people hanging out in the parking lot. I was never hassled by anyone in the 6 days we were there. Room was small. Cleanliness was borderline. When I went to plug the microwave back in there was thick dirt/ dust behind it. Great part was that there was a refrigerator and microwave in the room. Bad part was the hotel never seemed to have any ice. Also the TV in our room was not functional for the 6 days that we were there. I gave up complaining about it. Some noise from the freeway but relatively quiet.

"We had a blast"
It was a good time !!! The hotel was close enough to take a taxi to downtown for under 20 bucks!! The sheets and comforters were not very nice. There wasn't any cable I thought that was an amenity I paid for so that sucked. I wasn't really there to watch tv though. The staff was friendly and fun!! I would stay there again!!

"Find another hotel don't waste your money."
This hotel is a horrible place to stay for families and people who are in town for work. The management is very rude and there is to many shady figures allowed to walk in and out of the hotel.I have stayed at many hotels while on business but this definitely is in the top ten of the worst stays.

"Our room smelled of cigarette"
The place smells awful, at the breakfast the other guests goes with shoes or even socks, the experience was terrible we didn't even want to take our breakfast. It should be a "must shoe use" policy because is not hygienic. The only good thing was the guy at the front desk really nice!! I will never stay in that hotel or any other Howard Johnson in TX.

"I received what I paid for..."
This is a value priced hotel...but there were way to many people hanging around the front door that made me uncomfortable. A much older facility that has not had an upgrade or refresh in quite sometime. The staff was very pleasant and courteous. The TV was a basic cable package, local stations and about 4 cable channels. I received what I paid for, low price in a specific area, but to many "People of WalMart" types hanging around the front door.

"CHEAP"
Looks better in the photo - very old, rooms smell musty and decor is definitely outdated. Do not get room 110 if you want to sleep in - it is right next to the laundry!! No TV available - they were apparently doing some upgrades(??), but was not told this upon check-in. Then the ice machine was also not working - also not told upon check in. Breakfast was pretty good - waffles, cold cereal, English muffins, and some bread and small blueberry muffins, juice and coffee - NO TEA :-) fortunately I carry my own.

"South Austin Howard Johnson"
The desk attendant was very friendly. The breakfast area was not large enough and far from being clean. The elevator was broken. The back stair well was used to store broken TVs and broken chair. The Shower need to be repaired and cleaned a little be better. The bedspread has smoking holes in it. Should be trashed. Needed to clean up the litter around the building. [That goes for a lot of Austin.]

"Not suitable for business travel."
Stayed a week and while the bed was comfortable enough and the room met my essential needs for living, as a business trip destination this hotel was awful. The computer in the business center was down the entire week. The free wifi offerred was slow and broke down and killed my connection to the internet at least 2-3 times per hour. If you MUST have reliable access to the internet for work, and nowadays who doesn't, don't stay here. If that's not a concern for you, then it's a fine place to sleep, if nothing else.

"Horrible service"
Horrible, went to check in and they had given my room away. The person in the front desk was very rude, didn't seem to want to be at work, treated us like we were a bother to him. He offered to give me a different room with only one bed instead of the 2 I had paid for and it smelled like mildew. I wasn't able to stay so had to go somewhere else and request a refund. Don't recommend this hotel to anyone.

"The good, the bad, and the holy..."
The service was pretty good and we didn't stay in the room much since it was pretty much just a place to sleep for the night. It had a comfortable bed and pillows and great shower pressure. The only things wrong for me were we asked for non smoking but room smelled terribly of smoke, the top blanket on the bed had a hole about the size of an orange, and the toilet was a little dusty.

"worst stay ever"
This was the worst hotel I have every been in. I thought it was a half way house that should be torn down. It was nasty and it smelled. Microwave was not plugged up and could not even reach to the plug. Around 10pm someone knocked on my door really hard and shortly after a man was was walking up and down the hallway screaming a girls name. I always call for a late checkout but not this time. I was out of there by 10am.

"It was warm-dry and did the job"
I chose this hotel because I had good memories of Howard Jonson from the past, it was close to my intended connection and the price was reasonable. The room we were in was clean but very small. The bathroom was in need of repair. The tub/shower was in good shape but very small, the smallest I have seen. You could not sit in it. I guess it to be about a foot and a half wide. You need to stand sidewise in it. Other than this the room was clean and the front desk personnel were very nice and helpful with questions about the area and in general. I will stay again if I am in the area and if my connections are close.

"Smells terribly"
Smoke is everywhere, 3rd floor is off-limits to any no-smoker. I knew that by going this cheap I would have compromised on overall conditions, but this stay was not nice at all. Bed linen and blanket had several cigarete holes, door lock stopped working and personnel wasn't able to open it again till the following night. Despite the run down conditions, i had a feeling that at least it was clean (but definitely looking very dirty).... That's why i am giving 2 stars vs. just 1 Will not stay here again

"Howard Johnson, Austin, Texas"
The facility in general was not clean, and the staff was not very organized. The room that the staff sent us to was currently occupied by other patrons, which needless to say, presented an awkward situation as we tried to enter the room. Also, the staff forgot to log in the correct room we were actually staying in, and we had to prove that the stuff in the room was ours before they would let us back in the room we were staying in.
