"Save your money"
This was an excellent example of putting pearls on a pig and calling it a debutante. This was clearly a motel that is well past its prime dressed up as a LaQuinta Hotel complete with hotel prices and even charges per night for parking. Save your money and stay at an actual motel. The rooms were small, outdoor entry, very noisy and I even got to step […] over liquor bottles on my way to the elevator in the morning. The staff were very friendly but the establishment is just not up to par. I feel robbed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Need to rethink their pest control regime"
We stayed for 15 minutes. When we opened the door to our room, we spotted a cockroach stranded on the carpet - it couldn't scurry away. This was very disappointing because the downtown location was ideal. We had read a trip advisor review about another La Quinta in the area that had a roach problem. Clearly there is a systemic problem that is not being […] dealt with. We were offered another room and the desk clerk was most apologetic. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Customer service was horrible. There were no towels when we went down to ask for them so we had to take some small towels from the gym to dry off with. We were told some were going to be delivered and they never showed up. Both valet and front desk were understaffed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location but very noisy"
Hotel has not been kept up, very noisy. The staff was very nice but so short staffed. My key had to be rekeyed 2 times in two days. The location was great, we walked to the capitol and 6th street but it was like a frat hotel. I would not recommend this hotel and I would not stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Decent in a pinch"
We ended up here because we decided to make the trip less than a week in advance, so the price differential was huge and we figured we wouldn't be in the room enough to make a major difference. All in all, the room is ok, nothing to complain about, but expect serious noise issues, especially over the weekend, when all kinds of interesting characters […] from either the hall or the courtyard over which it faces come out at 3 am in various states of intoxication. Also, the parking system is nothing short of a catastrophe; since it's all valet, the turnover is painfully slow, especially at checkin/checkout times, and since the facilities aren't very expansive, it creates all kinds of bottlenecks. If you're in Austin, you'll be spending enough time out and about so that these problems aren't insurmountable. But don't expect anything more than the purely functional.

"Best Value for location during Convention"
The room was basic but clean and in good repair. Due to location a bit of outside noise but not all that disrupting. I was concerned about the cleanliness of the rooms based on some other posts but concerns not warranted. I'd stay here again if in need of close in downtown location. Front desk was very helpful even though they were slammed with convention […] people and general weekend travelers. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is in a great location, clean, nice staff and very comfortable beds.. We have stayed here several times and will continue to book this hotel when we go to Austin.. It's in a great location, within walking distance to just about everything and the price is reasonable, considering all of the other hotels in the vicinity..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"run down hotel"
close to 6th st but pretty grungy insideGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for affordable downtown access"
From the exterior, the place looks like a cheap motel, with unsurfaced concrete exterior hallways - but once I got to my room, it was big, clean, comfortable, and the air conditioner was fast and actually operated a reasonable volume (many hotels' air conditioners that sound like jet engines). The staff was very polite and helpful, including the valet […] parking staff. The breakfast was nothing to write home about, but had a perfectly good selection that began at 6am. Location is awesome. It's 5 quick blocks to 6th Street (live music and bars), a mile walk to the Whole Foods / Book People / Waterloo Records, and 1.5 miles to Zilker Park. And that at the price of a place that's several miles away. 'Condition and upkeep' does get an extra mark off for the door to my 3rd-floor hallway only half working: it was supposed to be "locked 24/7", but the door only closed all the way half the time, and then the card reader to let me in that door was really finicky about reading my room card.

"It was not worth the price"
I was awakened by too much noise several times the night. The microwave and fridge were in the vanity area--that was weird. The was not very clean. The bathroom was very small and the door didn't lock. I was disappointed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Houw embarrassing - a total failure"
Out of all the hotel options, we opted for a La Quinta. They have a high standard of hotels for the price and I enjoy good service there regularly when I've stayed in the past. BE WARNED - despite the La Quinta name, this hotel was a horrible choice. So bad in fact, I checked out after just one night of a three day stay. Upon my arrival I was alerted […] to the mandatory valet parking, then waited over 20 minutes for the one staff member to return from his duties elsewhere so I may check in to my room. Upon getting to my room, I found hair in my bed and covering the bathroom walls. I slept in the other bed. When I went for a shower the next morning, the shower head, titled to its highest point, got the water to my neck. I'm around 5 10, so this was quite a surprise. The hotel itself was rather run down and overall a mess. What a embarrassment for La Quinta. Don't stay here, no matter what. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Location almost makes up for age"
Great location to stay if you have something you need to be downtown for. We were there for UT graduation. Couldn't have been a better location for that. The hotel is aging and it shows. They do the best they can with what they have to work with. Staff is awesome. Be aware that there is parking - but only valet parking for a daily rate. You won't have […] easy access to your car, but they are fast at bringing it to you when you need it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, but older, somewhat rundown hotel"
It was epensive for the quality of the hotel, but the location was great. Just stayed there 1 night. No problems with the service...friendly staff...the computer was down...valet parking fee.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"room clean but that's about it. the rest was filth"
wow - could not believe how dirty the place was... elevators walk ways in particular - fyi rooms open to outside walkway versus interior of buildingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"would not recommend"
When I arrived in the room, there was hair on the bath towels. For some reason there was load banging for an hour at 2:15 am. The maid came in the first morning to "clean" the room and took the towels replace them and left. The elevators did not work most of the morning that I was to check out. Had to use service elevator when it started working. Vending […] machine for the soda did not except dollar bills and by the time the clerk helped me I had to add more money to get the soda. I will say that the front desk clerks were very friendly and helpful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would not stay here again."
Was awaken at 2:15 in the morning with pounding that actually shook the room and happened every 15 minutes for an hour. Found hair on the bath towels when I arrived in the room and when the room was "cleaned" the next morning the lady gathered the towels, replace with new ones and left. Elevators did not work on the morning of check out for hours. Soda […] machine did not accept dollar bills and when the attendent helped me had to add extra money to the machine to get my soda. Will have to say that the front desk staff was very helpful and friendly, but would not recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything's good! Good location, good parking, good service, good people!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was difficult getting from the valet parking to our room. Hotel corridors are quite narrow and were partially blocked by housekeeping carts. Traffic at the parking check-in was heavy due to a the arrival of a number of police cars (for a memorial event) and at least 50 motorcycles (motocycle club) apparently on tour. The motorcycles continued to […] roar well into the night and in the early morning as bikers arrived and departed. The bathroom had a considerable hole in the ceiling (repaired at least once) apparently from a leak in the bathroom above. The air conditioning unit rattled when cycling on. The complimentary breakfast was satisfactory. Location is a plus and the parking valets were very pleasant. With a little attention to maintenance, the hotel could make vast improvements in the quality of the stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"No frills, but everything that we needed."
This is not a pretty hotel. There are water stains on the ceiling, I'm fairly certain the roof was leaking when it rained, the hallway smelled strongly of marijuana, and the décor hasn't been updated in awhile. However, the beds were comfortable, breakfast was ample, and the location is unbeatable (one block from Congress Ave.). I wouldn't stay here […] if you are looking for luxury, but if you're looking for a place to rest in between having a wonderful time in downtown Austin, this place is a great choice.

"Close to Family Wedding Event"
Very disappointed in the run down condition of the hotel and the noise level from the Saturday night younger set who frequent the downtown night spots. The charge was $200/night which I normally would not find acceptable. However, the location of a family wedding made the decision to stay at this hotel. The hotel staff were very courteous and helpful […] and that is not always the case at motels/hotels. We will never stay at this hotel again regardless of the location.

"Stay after BPMS150"
Guy at the front was very nice and helpful. Checked in without any issues. The room was clean and spacious with great light. In a safe location and close walk to 6th street. The valet attendant called us a taxi when we needed it and was very helpful. Would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best Place in Austin"
If you're in Austin and need to be close to the Capitol, this is the place. Literally acroos the street. Also well within walking distance to 6th Street. Staff was incredible, very customer service oriented, and the valet only parking makes staying here a pleasure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was in somewhat worn condition from the elevators to the general condition of the room. The location while being somewhat central to the city proved to be noisy at night from the noise, the other guests (who seemed to be the late night party crowd) and the air conditioner compressor which was very noisy. I will choose a different hotel next […] time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Kind of a dive"
All rooms are motel style with an outdoor entrance. Sound has no problem traveling through the walls so you get the pleasure of hearing your neighbor's toilet flushing as well as hearing the neighbors TV. It is right by the Capitol building which is pretty convenient. It wasn't so bad for a night, just don't expect much.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was a good location for us, but it seemed over priced for the condition and age of the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Walkability but lacking otherwise"
We stayed at the La Quinta for its location knowing it wasn't going to be top notch. We were not wrong in our assessment. Walkability is amazing if your plans include the Capitol, 6th St, and downtown in general. The service was good, the continental breakfast standard, and the pool looked worthy (though we did not use it). Just take into consideration […] that this is an older, not well maintained motel... old carpets, no sound proofing, aged fixtures (doors, elevator, windows, walkways). Our air conditioner leaked so a moldy smell was obvious in the room and our sheets had hair from previous users within (didn't come out in the wash?). But we paid for convenience not bling so were not surprised, though the price was bit high in my opinion. I am disappointed that La Quinta doesn't give this hotel more love... I'm sure they feel they don't have to as regardless of its condition it gets massive amounts of Capitol business. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place in the middle of the city"
Best bet on a budget. The staff is real nice and its not totally run down like other cheap motels in the area. Its actually more like a hotel. Much recommendedGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Disgusting, loud and run down"
Don't waste your time. Place was one of the most disgusting places I have ever stayed in my 15 year career of traveling all over for work. Spend a little more money and stay somewhere you don't have to wear your clothes to bed...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not sound proof."
I could hear neighbors from the bed turning on/off the water & flushing the toilet. I could hear from the restroom a young person yelling on a skate board. The room is not sound proof.Genuine Expedia guest review
this place needs to be rebuilt....will never stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Definitely a 2 star hotel. Very outdated. The doors have no weatherstripping or are not insulated so you hear everything that goes on in the hallways, even as light as footsteps. It was like sleeping in the hallway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overpriced because of downtown location."
Breakfast was good. Price was higher than usual.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst $200 hotel"
I felt like I was in a 4 story 1950's motel. All the rooms had exterior doors and a concrete walkway outside so you heard everything and everyone who went by your room. It was just cheesy. Plus parking was an extra expense and our car was damaged by that "service". I won't be allowing them in my pocket agin. There are much better options.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not so sound proof room"
The hotel is okay. Staffs were very friendly and made us feel welcomed. But The wall between our room and the next room is so paper thin that we could hear guests next room talking all night long. We couldn't sleep and had to cut our stay short and moved to other hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Second stay in one month!"
I traveled to Austin twice in Feb. for work and both times stayed at this location. First trip wasn't as bad and maybe it was just the room but it had a very moldy/musty smell and only way I could tolerate it was to run the AC unit which didn't function correctly either. The room was dingy and made me a bit uncomfortable. Overall location was good but […] would not stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"desert in the heart of downtown Austin"
OK although overpriced for sleeping, but use it as a pricey motel by the freeway on a road trip. Advise: if you don't want to spend >200 bucks, get in late, and leave early. No food, no restaurants, no shops, no espresso, nothing around worth seeing, deserted if not scary at night, takes 15 min to get a taxi for escape, poor bublic transportation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
