Negative Reviews

In a bad location

Many guests haven't been happy with the location of this motel. For starters, it is a fair distance from downtown Austin, so you will need a vehicle to reach the city's top attractions. The area is also a little bit of a ghetto, so it isn't a good idea to walk around alone at night in this part of town.

Strange check-in situation

Past guests haven't liked the check-in procedure at this motel, as there isn't a lobby. Instead, you must stand outside the building and talk to a staff members who is on the other side of a window. Guests would have preferred to conduct their business inside the motel.

Noise from the freeway

There have been complaints about the amount of noise that makes its way into the rooms from the freeway. This property sits right along Interstate 35, so there is a fair amount of traffic that goes by throughout the night.
