When I arrived to check in, the room that they sent me to was not clean. I trudged back to the front desk, and told them about the room. I asked them to hold my luggage so that I could leave and find dinner and hopefully when I returned I'd have a room. When I got back, I settled in with my take out, changed into night clothes, and tried to turn on […] the TV set. It didn't work, with or without remote. I called the front desk to find out if I had missed something. Magic word, etc. The man at the desk offered to come and check it out, but I was so tired, and I didn't want to move again, or change back into street clothes to let someone in. The next morning I decided to make coffee, in the coffee maker that also did not work. So, I realize that these are all first world problems, but my stay was not what I would have expected, and I would not recommend this hotel to any one else. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"NIce location very nice experience"
Excellent stay-wife and I enjoyed the facilities--will be back-stayed there several years ago!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel for a great price"
always enjoy my stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
the trouble for me with this hotel was that the walls are thin and I could hear people's conversations out in the hall very clearly. Partying visitors kept me up throughout the night on the weekend. With a combination of earplugs, using a white noise website on my laptop, running both the bathroom and the main room fans in the room (both loud) all night, […] and a pillow over my head, I was finally able to get to sleep. Try to get a room at the far end of the hallway so you don't have to hear as many people passing by. I dislike being required to pay an extra $13 a night for valet parking so I initially almost didnt stay there. But in terms of its proximity to both downtown and the UT campus, the location can hardly be beat. I do NOT think it was a good value for the money. Most La Quintas are, but this one charges a very high room rate for a hotel that is middle-of-the-road, and in fact a bit old and like I said, really needs better insulation. But it's not like you can do any better in that area of town unless you are prepared to pay for a Hilton or Marriott. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Next Door to Capitol"
The room was in great condition. Clean and within walking distance to food and night lifeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Made business very do-able"

"Inflated rates for a less than mediocre hotel"
This hotel has a prime location and service is great but the ambiance and the structure itself ahouls be fully remodeled. The most disappointing thing is to pay 200+ dollars a night for a hotel that's condition is the equivalent to a motel 6. Don't think you will ever get sleep here. The walls are thin and the architecture is like a walk up to your […] room in where your room and window faces the main hallways and traffic. You can hear every sound from the inside of your room as well as all the vehicle traffic. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Was there for Texas relays and location is good!! Can walk to campus as well as to 6th streetGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Okay -- but would not stay there again"
Staff were friendly, courteous and very helpful. This hotel is obviously rather old and a bit worn down. While the breakfast was adequate, choice was limited and offered no protein (eggs, sausage, etc) In January, I stayed at another establishment that offered much better fare and their prices were lower. A personal gripe that applies everywhere: charging […] for parking. I normally avoid hotels that do so if at all possible. And their charge for parking was not mentioned in their write up. It is within walking distance of the 6th Street District if that's your thing -- not mine. I was attending an athletic event at The University of Texas, which was within reasonable walking distance.

We enjoyed our stay. The required valet parking was fast and convenient. They even quickly gave me my keys and let me run to the car when I forgot something. The front desk staff was very friendly as well. The room was nice. I felt like it could have been colder, but I turned the AC all the way down and it was comfortable enough. The room was clean […] for the most part. Breakfast was pretty tasty. The Texas shaped waffle makers were a nice touch. I loved the closeness to the capital and Frank Erwin Center. Walking around was a breeze. I would definitely stay here again, but wish it wasn't so expensive. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"It was fine."
It's not fancy. I think it was over priced. The week AFTER sxsw the prices should have been lower. The room seemed clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Good location.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Our room was delayed"
We arrived at the hotel at 7 pm and our room was not ready. We were told that we would receive a call as soon as it was ready. 2 hours passed and no phone call. Finally I decided to call and apparently our room gad been ready and no one called us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Over an hour to check in and they did nothing to compensate me.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Erin Gym"
We were there for the girls state basketball tournament. The motel was close to the gym and easy to get to. The valet parking was excellent. So convenient for them to park our cars so we didn't have to find a place to park. We enjoyed our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location, but extremely poor customer service"
We booked (and pre-paid) for a 3-night stay at the LaQuinta Inn Austin Capitol. When we arrived, we were greeted byan extremely condescending female attendant. We were not given the King bed that we reserved and pre-paid for. Instead, we were given a room with two double beds right next to an extremely noisy heating unit that ran the duration of our […] three night stay. The lady that checked us in was in a word...rude. She stated at one point while we were discussing our room accomodations "that's the downfall of booking online. We can't guarantee a room with a king bed for any nights of your stay. We're overbooked for every night." This is simply poor form on the part of the hotel. Don't overbook room when guests are pre-paying. You're guaranteed the money! While the room was decently clean, it certainly wasn't worth the money we paid for the duration of our stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"La Quinta Austin downtown"
This is a really old LQ property. Room was nice enough & very clean but bags rolling down the outside concrete walkway in the wee early morning hours were really noisy. Also sounded like there was no carpet on the room above us. Some woman kept walking across floor in her heels.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Mediocre, will not stay there again"
A place that doesn't make you like to go back to it in the future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
perfect location downtown, but what made it exemplary was the quality of the staff, from the desk clerk who helped access our boarding passes to the valets who were extremely courteous and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quick Unexpected Trip"
Don't like the mandated valet parking... its an inconvenience to get something from your car if need it, even if on first level, as well as constant tipping if in/out. Hotel is in need of renovation as showing its age. Staff overall friendly, and good downtown location within walking distance of various venues and activities. Price was right, and good […] for a quick overnight stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"You pay for location"
I was not impressed by the hotel. The elevator was filthy and needed to be cleaned. Overall the hotel design and decor was outdated. It is in need of new everything. The carpet was old and the bathtub was stained. The bed was nice and clean, but that was the only positive thing about the room. The service was friendly but again, you pay for the location. […] You are forced to valet your car and an additional fee is tacked onto your room for that. I did quite enjoy the ability to walk to several restaurants and businesses. However, I would not stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"best location, ok hotel"
Perfectly located directly downtown, only a few blocks from all of Austin's best monuments, bars, restaurants, and music venues. I didn't mind the valet parking (which is mandatory $12/day), cause my car was safe and I could just walk anywhere I needed. Basic room, clean, friendly front desk staff, I saw a pretty nice pool and workout room although […] I didn't get to experience either. The breakfast was well managed and quiet. The only thing that bothered us, which also seemed to bother plenty of other guests, is the noise! a lot of parties going on at the hotel, also lots of loud college-aged kids that were there to go out drinking downtown, so you can imagine the noise around 5-6pm, and around 1-2am. Me and my wife slept ok regardless because most of the noise was distant from our room, but it would have been smart to bring some earplugs. I Heard from some other guests that hotel security was trying to keep the noise down, but they can only do so much when it's multiple rooms over and over. For the price and location though, I would certainly stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel next to the Texas Capitol"
A yellow corner building near the Austin Capitol and great view to the city. The hotel is old, but with a great staff any hotel can be rated as 5 star hotel. As long as the room is clean and the bed is comfortable you can not ask for anything else. I would stay here again, but rather be on a leisure trip with my wonderful family.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is incredibly noisy. It's not the most up-to-date property I've ever stayed at, but it is clean and the staff is very helpful and flexible.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was originally going to give this four stars--based on other reviews, I wasn't expecting a lot, but the room was decently clean and that was really what I just needed. (Yes, it smelled a little musty, and you wish they had those small amenities that make a big difference, but that is what you pay for. And, location is pretty convenient.) What brought […] my experience down to four stars was seeing how my room was visible from the street: a little concern for privacy (though the rooms are only accessible through the lobby elevator), and also the noise/draft from the streets. Unfortunately there was a construction going on during my stay, which is not the hotel's fault, but it was hard to sleep. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We didn't pay attention on the fact that the hotel was by Austin University and mostly filled with students during the week end, As a consequence the night was a bit noisy outside our room and we didn't manage to sleep for a couple of hours, The manager of the hotel gaves us a discount, which was much appreciated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent staff and comfort"
Hotel is located close to business I had to do. The staff was excellent,the room was very clean an comfortable. I rate this hotel an excellent rating would recommend it to anyone. Enjoyed the stay thank you very much.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very clean room"
The room was very clean. The hotel's location is convenient, and it's a good value for downtown. I did not like that you are charged for parking even though you already paid to stay at the hotel. Parking should be included. Also you could hear other guests pretty well through the walls.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The nightmare hotel"
Water smelled room smelled door did shut all the way unless pulled great location close to it and sixth street breakfast buffet is awful front desk day staff or very nice breakfast attendant and night staff are rascist and rude to black peopleGenuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel if you're looking to get rowdy on 6th"
the room was comfortable & clean. couldn't hear other people in the rooms on either side or across the hall, which was nice. definitely a large college-aged crowd. it's a quick 5 block walk to 6th street and about a block from the capitol. the hotel parking is valet only. it's kind of a mess, especially at check out time. they only had ONE valet guy […] working (a housekeeper helped pull some of the weight) and we had to wait almost 45 minutes to get our car on a saturday morning. if you have to be somewhere at a certain time, I would definitely advise you to plan ahead. nonetheless, when I go back to austin, I will be staying here. you really can't beat the price for it's close proximity to some attractions Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Met with friendly reception dispite the hour (Midnight). Valet parking was excellent and friendly despite severe weather (below freezing, sleet and freezing rain). Convenient location, clean room. Well worth the cost.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Older La Quinta."
Seems to be an older La Quinta with some cosmetic issues on the exterior. My room was great and housekeeping did a great job of cleaning each day. The staff was very friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
Not a place to stay if your looking for a quiet motel. If your there to party it is ideal. Walking distance to 6th street. People out socializing after bar hours (the party relocated here). Rooms were clean and I saw no bugs like other reviews I read. Vallet guys very helpful. Desk staff looked miserable and irritated. Not mean just looked like they […] hated there job.

I did not like the fact that I had to pay for parking. This was not posted on the web-site when I was looking for hotels. I was close to the elevator and it was very noisy traffic passing my room from other guests. I go to Austin frequently and I will not be staying at this hotel again. I did not find the value for the dollar amount I spent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, cheap rooms."
My hotel experience was satisfying, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is a few blocks from the main strip, easily within walking distance, and the Capital is right next door. The hotel amenities were what you would expect for this price range. The only complaint I have is my room smelled very strongly of whiskey and I did not like […] the cab company the hotel recommended I use (yellow cab). If you are on a budget I would highly recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
