"super poor"
The worst hotel EVER! there were ants and roaches, the TV did work or even have a cord or remote control for it to work. It smelled AWFUL, it was OVERPRICED, the employees there were not inviting and didn't knie anything. They were not at the front deck majority of the time. The best thing there was the fsvt that the a/c was AWESOME. But I would have been better off sleeping in my car.

DOWNSIDE: No hot water in the shower!! Room appeared unclean even if the housekeeper came to clean up... I guess it's the paint/interior. Saw some bugs in the room & bathroom!!! Smokers & drunk people around the area by the inn's entrance! UPSIDE: Staff is friendly! Request for cab didn't take too long...

"Stay Away!"
If you like homeless people around the entrance to your hotel this is the perfect one for you, also front desk was rude and not helpful at all. Reserved a non smoking room a month in advance and all they had were smoking rooms when we tried to check in. Location was horrible, the whole place smelled and didn't seem safe. Will not ever stay in a Howard Johnson again.

Hotel was under extensive renovations, and did not receive any sort of compensation for this. I.E. price break. Shower did not work properly. Breakfast closed too early. Many vending machines did not work.

"Interesting stay"
We pulled up to a hotel that looks like people are living there. There was also construction going on Sunday afternoon! We had a non-smoking room but across the hall was smoking?? It was interesting, felt uncomfortable but whatever. It worked for the night because the place that I had to go to was right across the street.

The place is a little beat up. The neighborhood is not nice. The workers are friendly, though. You should only stay if it's for a short one night stay, otherwise you will not want to be in your hotel room.

"PITTYFUL !!"
TOTALLY UPSET WITH THE ROOM. PITTYFUL PLACE NEEDLESS TO SAY. THE RESTROOM SEAT WAS ALL CRACKED. THE WALLS ON THE ROOM NEEDED NEW PAINT. PILLOW COVERS NEEDED ON TWO OF THEM. THE AC WAS CONTROLED BY MANAGEMENT AND IT GOT HOT FOR ME. I DID NOTICE THE HOSTESS REMOVED THE MUFFINS FROM THE WRAPPER AND PLACED THEM ON A TRAY, SHE DID NOT HAVE GLOVES. THIS WAS NOT PLEASING TO MY EYES. I WOULD NOT CONSIDER A HOWARDJOHNSON HOTEL. THIS PLACE NEEDS SOME UPGRADES. MARGIE

"Not for the faint of heart."
Friendly and helpful staff elevated this poor facility to two stars. Shady characters hanging in the parking lot. Hallway smelled of mildew. Basic room which had a heavy antiseptic cleaner smell. Had to open the window to air the place out. Since we were in the first floor, I kept expecting Eileen Wournos to come to the window looking for work. There was a working fridge and microwave in the room. That was a nice touch. Very basic for the price. Not good for families with kids.

"Worst. Hotel. Experience. Ever."
Quite literally the worst Howard Johnson I've ever stayed in. Doing a lot of business and personal travel, I have come to expect a certain level of quality from this hotel chain. Not so this weekend. You could only be issued one room key at a time. Having more than one would cancel out the other. Besides the fact that its 2015 and technology is every other hotel in the world seems to have advanced past this section of Austin, its inconvenient and dangerous. Asked the front desk for extra towels, and we were told 'Well, the maids are in the hallway. Ask them'. To which the maids told us that we couldn't have extra, they had to clean our rooms and take our other towels first. Are towels that hard to come by? For a hotel. The hotel is right off of I-35, but that convenience is lost once you figure out that you are literally right between an two mergine entrance ramps and an exit ramp. Howard Johnson will never get my business again, much less this hotel.

"Horrible"
From the minute I pulled into the parking lot, I knew I had made a mistake. I relied on the Howard Johnson name while choosing this hotel. The people hanging out in the parking lot made me not want to get out of the car. Everything dirty. Didn't even shower that night, didn't want to use the tub! TV got 2 channels!! In other words, I do not recommend this hotel to anyone!!

"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.

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.

"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.
