"convenient and good value"
Hotel room provided everything I needed for a short 2 night stay. Every hotel staff person I encountered was extremely pleasant and accommodating. I was thoroughly impressed with the quality and delightful attitude of all staff memebers. I'd definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Never, I repeate NEVER, stay in this hotel if you want a quite night of sleep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very Disappointed, from the last minute price jump to the condition of the hotel itself. Not sure I will ever use this site again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
great location, but outdated and loud. needs a renovation to match the price they charge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed here as a halfway stopping point on a drive to Texas. The staff was all very friendly. The hotel was pretty run down and old. The faucet for the bathtub leaked and everything seemed worn down. It was fine for a quick overnight stay, but they could use some renovations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location & value - newly updated rooms"
It's a LaQuinta, it's a bargain that won't blow you away. Having been to Austin many times, I usually stay at this hotel. The location is very convenient and is priced well. Parking is valet only but under $15, which you will have to pay at least that much to park anywhere in Austin anyway. The hotel is walk-able from the 6th Street area or a $5 cab […] ride. While it's not a great overall hotel, the staff was friendly and the rooms as of Oct .2013 were newly renovated and clean. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Worked for function. Walking distance to Frank Erwin Center and 6th street made it convenient for this stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Valet Parking ONLY"
On the website it says nothing about it being Valet Parking ONLY. Just a warning to others. Had I known, I would've stayed elsewhere. Otherwise, I was woken up to a Mexican music station on the radio alarm and awoken again to security horns honking on someone's vehicle which kept going on and off for an hour or so. UGH. Not a very peaceful night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"perfect location. but..."
Was a perfect walk to the football stadium and game. And even closer to sixth when I wanted more to do. But the room was muggy and hummid all night. Barely slept. And I didn't have an "user error" with the a/c as staff suggested. Lame. I know how to work an a/c. I've stayed out in cities for similar events regularly. I'm fairly mechanically inclined […] at that. Such a shame. Was a great place if you wanna be in central Austin. But not if you want to have a good rest. I'll pass next time.

"good downtown location"
Location is good. Beds are smaller than I expected at the time of booking. Housecleaning did not come during our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No need to drive"
If you are staying in austin to visit capitol, this Inn is perfect. It is walking distance to capitol and if you consider the valet parking and dont have to worry about time, this is perfect. I walked to capitol for summit, walked down congress avenue, ate and went back to my room without a taxi or driving or worrying about my car.Genuine Expedia guest review

"One block from Capitol"
Nice motel, walking distance to Capitol, UT, 6th and 7th streets and the river. Good breakfast included, but you have to pay for parking which is reasonable.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Close but no cigar..."
Conveniently located within walking distance to Austin Capitol and many downtown restaurants. Less of a hotel than a motel. Free wi-fi, decent pool, accommodating staff. Bed was uncomfortable - very hard, but at least it was clean! The halls were filthy. Was woken repeatedly between 2-5 am by loud, drunken, obnoxious partiers in the hall and adjacent […] rooms. Their dialogue consisted mostly of shouted obscenities, graphic descriptions of bodily functions, and stream-of-conscious narratives of their state of intoxication. Judging by the halls the next morning, they may have also played baseball with full boxes of pizza. The staff did nothing to deal with this issue. The bulk of the hotel has motel-style access to the rooms. The parking is valet-only at $12.95 per day, which wasn't in the description when I booked the room and probably would have steered me elsewhere. They also had a semi-pornographic talk show on the lobby television while my young son and I checked out. I would not stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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
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.

"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.

"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
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
"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
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

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
