Positive Reviews

Friendly staff

Reviewers were largely upbeat about the customer service, often describing the personnel at front desk as attentive, friendly and courteous.

Flexible and good value for money

Many reviewers thought their stays at this budget motel represented good value for money due to the affordable room rates, decent rooms, convenient roadside location and range of guest freebies, which included free parking and free morning coffee. The pet-friendly policy added flexibility for guests, while the location about ten minutes' drive from downtown Austin suited most reviewers just fine. Stores and restaurants nearby plus a shopping mall across the road only added to the convenience factor. However, the charges for Wi-Fi access were unpopular.

Praise for rooms and facilities

Guests generally liked the rooms, describing them as basic but spacious and comfortable. It was appreciated that the rooms had been remodeled with a modern feel and reportedly comfy beds. There was also praise for the outdoor pool. Most reviewers thought the property was more than adequately clean, but some guests thought certain pieces of furniture were showing their age.

Negative Reviews

Cleanliness standards could be improved

While plenty of guests were more than satisfied with the cleanliness of the motel, critics occasionally reported issues like stained linens, unswept floors and pests.

Too noisy for some

Some rooms were exposed to traffic noise from the nearby highway, which was a nuisance for light sleepers. There were also occasional claims of noise from neighboring rooms being audible due to thin walls.

Smoke smells a nuisance

Reviewers occasionally detected smoky smells in some of the rooms despite the motel's smoke-free policy.
