"Never Ever Again!!!!!"
We did not end up staying at this particular Super 8 !!! Hotel Manager was very aggressive, not a people person, not very helpful at all... We were out of there in a matter of 7 minutes flat... I would sleep in my car if this is your last choice to stay!!!!! J. HuronGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great bargain! Clean and cheap."
My group (four adults) was pleasantly surprised by how clean this hotel was, especially since we had chosen to stay there simply based off it being one of the least expensive hotels near downtown Austin. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable, so our pre-requisites for a decent hotel were met. I can't comment on the amenities because we never […] made use of any but the hotel staff seemed friendly enough and we never had any issues with noise or anything. Other reviews exaggerated how close the hotel is to downtown Austin, or at least in regards to walking distance. Driving is no issue, but it's about a 20-30 minute walk to 6th street, so those looking to enjoy the bars should plan on taking a cab back to the hotel. We enjoyed our stay and would probably stay there again if we ever go back to Austin. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location to convention center, but that's it"
Walls were paper thin, drunks coming in @ 1:30a.m., and Management not interested in assisting. Priced way too high. Musty smell in room. My fault for waiting last minute to book for graduation weekend but know I will stay home next time if this is all there is.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Older hotel but well maintained"

"Super 8 Review"
When I was planning a trip to Austin I looked at a hotel that was close to 6th st, but not overly priced. On the google search this hotel came up, and despite it having been ranked 2 stars out of 5, it was actually pretty good. I got 2 queens, in the room they had an iron and fridge, which was not I was expecting at all. And they were literally a 2min […] drive from 6th st. Which was a sweet bonus. When I want to party in 6th I'll stay at this hotel again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Inexpensive and ideally located"
I'd heard a few negative comments about the Super 8 chain, including reviews of this location, but as a traveller on a budget, I picked this place due to it's proximity to the city, and was not disappointed. It literally is only a few blocks, or a 10 minute walk to the Capitol Building and grounds and downtown. I walked back after drinks with friends, […] from the city to the hotel, around 1am, and did not feel unsafe (although I was warned not to go any further east). I had one of the newly refurbished rooms, and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the bathroom and room fittings. Yes - it was a little noisy. Not from traffic, but from some dubious characters that were staying. Some loud talking near by room at 2am, a few people coming and going, and some late night stomping above me, but I was awake anyway. I still managed to have a pleasant night's sleep. Initially, it was hard to find anyone at reception, but I had arrived early, so when I did return to check in, I was handled quickly and pleasantly. For the rate (I paid around US$90 a night), I can not fault this place. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Swimming pool picture on website is very misleading........it is not that big at all. There is one washer and one dryer to use, which was good! Air conditioner would turn off an on during the night......made sleeping a bit difficult. Breakfast buffet okay, but nothing amazing. Room was very clean. Good location to reach downtown, UT area.Genuine Expedia guest review
Close to lots of sights. Walking distance to Franklin BBQ, UT, Capital and 6th street. Surrouding area was kinda sketchy though. Two cops were hanging out in the parking lot when I pulled up for a late check-in which is usually a bad sign. We didn't expereince any problems during our 2 day stay. The outside looks pretty run down but the rooms themselves […] were fine. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"20 minutes to the airport"
We only stayed here for about 6 hours before leaving for the airport. The location was convenient to the highway.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value, close to downtown but kinda noisy"
My experience was basically what I expected. The hotel was cheap relative to other hotels in the downtown area and is about a 10 minute walk to everything. The other guests were on the noisy, i.e. people talking loudly in the parking lot until after 4am. All in all it was just what we bargained for.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just a Room"
Seemed to be understaffed and running behind at check-in and check-out. Other guests were very loud until almost 3 am in the morning. Parking leaves alot to be desired, very small for the amount of rooms. Very clean rooms and easy access to hotel from interstate. It was just a room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"location & price"
I was looking for an inexpensive stay close to downtown arts district, and wasnt too worried about amenities. I got a very good price and was less than a mile from the heart of downtown. Service was minimal and lacked competance, but room was clean.

"location great fir my trip"
We didn't have a great experience which is why my ratings are very low. Room had plumbing problems that hotel was unaware of. Bathtub had backed up dye to problems next door. We were moved after I contacted front desk. They were courteous but experience still bad. Good thing was we were there for a conference and hotel was in prime location to our meeting […] place on 4th street. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

There are so many other hotels in the area for less that are much safer than this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Reasonably Priced & Walking Distance to 6th Street"
I was heading to Austin for an overnight trip with my college son mainly to take in the 6th Avenue sites. This hotel IS walking distance to 6th Street (easily less than a mile), but you have to walk over the interstate and threw one or two questionable blocks to get there. The cost is what sold me on the property. You can't get anything closer to downtown […] unless you pay 2-3X as much. The hotel is definitely a 2 star property but served it's purpose. It looks like they are slowly trying to renovate the rooms, but certainly haven't completed. New laminate wood flooring has been installed int he rooms, but painting, trimwork and decor is still a phase they obviously haven't gotten to. The room was clean and it did offer a flat screen tv and breakfast the next morning which I can't rate because we left before they served at 6A. Parking is limited but we were okay. They are very strict (and not so friendly) about their 4P check in time. Don't try and check in earlier. They absolutely will NOT let you regardless of how empty the motel looks! Kind of a bummer since we had flown in at 10A and leaving the next morning at 5A. We had no place to store our bags or freshen up until then to try and get the best ouf of our less than 24 hour trip.

"Not a happy Traveler"
The staff except for one man was rude, slow, and act like it was there first day. The rooms did not get cleaned until 4 pm even thought they get there to clean at 10 am. The building was rundown and was not appealing. The first day there I found food still in my room and I would leave my trash in a bag in the tub with used towels and had to find dumpster […] myself. The free Wi-fi lets be honest it sucked. I would not stay there again if given the option, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Close to the Dirty 6 and food trucks. Would stay here again for the rate and how close it is to a lot of things. Easy/short cab to many places as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Inexpensive, good location, bad customer service."
The issue that I have is that I had to leave a day early due to an unexpected death in the family that I found out about upon arrival to my destination. I called hotels.com two days before I had to leave for the funeral and they did everything they should have done to get me a possible refund for the last day I was supposed to stay there, and was given […] confirmation by them and the front desk that everything would be taken care of and there would be no problem with getting a refund. Front desk even showed me in their books and the fax that hotels.com sent them, so I assumed nothing else would need to be done. I knew it may take a week or so for the refund to show back up on my card. I gave it two weeks and called to see why I hadn't been refunded yet. Now the manager of the hotel is saying that I did not tell them I was checking out early even though he admits that he did receive the information well ahead of time, and is not willing to give me my refund. I have no problem with hotels.com, but this is shady of the managers of this hotel. Don't tell me to my face that everything is ok and that I will be refunded and then go back on your word, that's just poor customer service. If they would have told me that I couldn't have the refund from the beginning, I would have understood and been fine with it. But, now I will never stay here again and will do everything I can to keep others from staying here. I strongly dislike dishonest businesses. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Noisy and sour waffle dough!"
This is a motel next to the freeway so very noisy. It is convenient located to Downtown area. The place is just for a night sleep. They say they have breakfast but even the waffle dough was sour! I wouldn't satay here again! There are better choices at the same price in the other side of the freeway where at least breakfast is not spoiled.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall A Good Stay"
I had some trouble with the reservation right off the bat, the man I spoke with on the phone (an older man with a pretty thick accent) was extremely rude. He continuously interrupted me and argued with me, but we eventually got it sorted out. Once we got there, we were checked in by another person who was very efficient and polite, and we had an otherwise […] flawless weekend. They were clean, easy to get too and very tolerant of us, as I'm sure we were a smidge loud. Rocky Start, but I will definitely stay here again if I need a good place close to 6th street.

"Cheap but it works"
This is a kind of shabby motel. There are bars on from floor to ceiling on the balcony over the pool. The exterior looks shady. But they are remodeling now, and my room had faux hardwood floors, which was nice. The bed was ok, not awesome but not bad. The breakfast was meager, nothing but cheap gas station carb snacks & a waffle maker. I played music […] from my phone at my table when I was in there by myself, since there was no music. The front desk guy came and asked me to turn it off! In Austin! Weird. It's close to downtown though, which is nice. If you can't afford anything nicer, this place works.

The hotel was Clean and rooms are newGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We knew not to expect much, and it wasn't fabulous but did the job! We just wanted a cheap place to stay overnight and it did the trick.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We paid at least twice as much as the normal rate because it was the weekend of the Austin Marathon and Half Marathon, and definitely did not get what we paid for. When I called to ask what exit off of I-35 the hotel was, the guy on the phone said 131C (it was 234A). We had trouble finding it because the giant Super 8 light was off (and we were driving […] at night). When I told the desk clerk that it was out, he didn't seem to care. They ran out of Austin maps. There was construction going on in surrounding rooms, so it was noisy most of the time. The room smelled, there were minimal amenities (they didn't even have tissues in the room), and the walls were paper thin. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Horrible experience with staff."
Four times I was approached in the parking lot about moving my car because they were working on parking lot. Twice was in the dark and I didn't know the man worked for the hotel and it scared me. I moved my car twice to area they said was okay and then still kept asking me to move, They would not allow me to use a restroom in the lobby when I arrived. […] The sign said no public restrooms but, I was staying for four nights. They also had construction that was worked on late in the evening that kept me up. Every time I exited my room there was heavy cigarette smoke. The hotel would not give me a bill of any sort claiming Expedia had to and Expedia would not give me an itemized bill.

"It's a cheap hotel with bad service, close to city"
The manager stopped breakfast an hour early on Saturday, so we had to pay an extra 20 bucks for breakfast in the city that we weren't expecting. When we asked him about it closing early, he lied and said it was only open till 10 on Sunday. It wasn't until we pointed to the permanent sign by the door that said breakfast went till 10 both Saturday and […] Sunday that he apologized. Staff is fine but treats you like you're cheap because the hotel is cheap. If the price hadn't been low, I never would have stayed. Stay here if you're traveling on a budget and want a room to sleep in. It's close to downtown and better than sleeping in a dumpster. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Will be great when construction is finished"
We chose this motel for its location and price. The room was a pleasant surprise - it had obviously been renovated recently, with wood and tile floors and fresh paint. Replacing the standard hotel carpet (which is usually suspicious at best) with wood is a fantastic idea because you can easily see that the floor has been cleaned. The room also had a […] nice TV with HBO, comfortable queen-size beds, a microwave, and a small refrigerator. It definitely exceeded my expectations for the price. The only negative thing I have to say about the experience is that the motel is still under construction. There was a sign in the lobby, but I don't remember seeing anything about the construction when I booked the room online. Once I was checking in and saw the sign it was a bit late to make other arrangements. The noise started at 7 am and was only 2 or 3 rooms down, so it was very disruptive. The renovations are unavoidable and are definitely increasing the value of the motel, but I wouldn't recommend staying here until they finish unless you want a 7 am wake up call.

Great deal for the price. Clean, newly remodeled room. Good beds. We needed room fast. Ice and snow predicted for during night.. Got online at 6pm and got room for the night.

it was a nice room but there is not security at all, some couple fighting outside like at 3am and this lady crying and hitting the door in the next room, until she broke a window. and keep fighting with the guy. that's the bad thing only. the rest it was ok the room was clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Some issues that should have been resolved"
I am older single lady in my seventh decade.. They placed me in a room next to a group of Spanish speaking rowdy, beer drinking males who were loud. The management had to notice the boxes of empty beer and be able to hear the loud men. because the were on the edge of a U shape that was immediately across from the office. Also the chair leg broke as […] soon as I sat down. I left the chair with a note in front of the door. The chair was removed, but not replaced. I had no chair to sit at the table to write or work on my computer for the three days I was there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Passable hotel stay"
The location of the hotel was really great for the price - we could have walked to some of the more popular areas in the downtown Austin area if we had wanted to cross 35 on foot. The room was pretty comfortable - it came with a mini fridge and microwave and coffeemaker. The bathroom was clean but the bed sheets had weird red and black stains on them. […] There was also a red stain on the wall...The service was subpar and the "continental" breakfast was even worse. The highlight of the potential breakfast was the Texas shaped waffles. However, the circuit breaker blew out multiple times while we were getting breakfast which meant really gooey waffles, minimal access to coffee and juice, and really not much else to eat (unless you like plain toast for breakfast). The hotel management didn't seem to know how to fix the problem and were not very apologetic about it nor did they try to find an additional solution for all the people who went without breakfast that morning. For the price, however, I can't complain too much! For a night's stay - it was definitely fine, but I wouldn't stay here for an extended stay by any means. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

It would be nice to know ahead of time that there is only one parking spot per room. Thank you to the sweet lady and gentleman who found a spot for me to park. Also, when you ask your patrons to smoke out side of the room, do not charge them because it smells like smoke. They are smokers and it is on their clothes. Wash the sheets and the odor will […] be gone. Hope that extra $100 charge covers your laundry bill. And when I am trying to explain that we followed the rules don't hang up on me.

Before we go we thought that will be just another ghetto motel , however when we arrive there the staff are very nice and know exactly what are they doing. most importantly when we open the room, it smell just those 4, 5 star hotel.
