Room smelled very strongly of smoke.

uncomfortable beds, hard to check-in (understaffed)

Close to Palmer / Long Center

Fairly grungy

Friendly staff

It's okay

Perfect location for us, felt like a safe area. Everything we went to was super close.

I was given a room with NO hot water and an air conditioner that was so loud it woke me up during the night every time it turned on. The quality of the room was atrocious! Is there no check in the rooms to ensure everything works? Does housekeeping not report stuff that’s not working? I just can’t believe a room like this would be given to a customer and that no one who works there would be unaware that it’s in such horrid state. Luckily, I was just sleeping there was I was in between apartments and showered at my old apartment… I was too tired to even consider moving rooms so just stayed there but shame on them.

Close to downtown and my daughter's dorm.

I liked how nested the place was especially how close it was to the Palmer center. Excellent, would stay again for basic needs at events and quietness and proximity to PTerry's.

the location was good

Near downtown for a suit nice.

I’ve stayed here twice (once a month ago) while I search for an apt and make a long-distance move. The staff are very courteous and professional, rooms are clean, location is great to get to Downtown Austin or South Lamar and South Congress. Only thing I’d recommend is leaving coffee and creamer packs in room. It stinks not having coffee in the morning.

Convenient location for walking downtown and to South Congress. Free parking. Staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel itself is a little worn down but clean. The room was what was described and appropriate for the cost. If you’re expecting amenities, you are not choosing the right place.

Found used spoon on floor when we entered our room. Not sure if we found a BLACK hair in the bathroom sink or a black thread. room 235
