Good location

This hotel places you within steps of a great choice of shops and restaurants. Plus, aside from the obvious proximity of the university and downtown area, you'll find several other area attractions are both easy to reach and simple to navigate to.

Friendly staff

Guests tend to agree that the staff at the Super 8 Austin University Downtown offer a good standard of customer service. A friendly welcome seems guaranteed and staff are happy to help out with local area information.

Decent value for money

Reasonable room rates are one of the biggest highlights of this property, but the value for money goes further than low-cost rooms. Despite some issues, there is a good choice of facilities and amenities that are offered free of charge.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast could be improved

Several guests mention that they would have liked to see more choice on the breakfast menu. Also, you'll need to get there handy to ensure you have the current full selection of items available to you. Some guests also thought the dining area was too small.

Rooms attract mixed reviews

Some of the guest rooms at this hotel appear to have been recently refurbished, so it's possible you'll get one of those. Unfortunately, not all rooms are so impressive. A regular complaint relates to filthy floors, but there are additional issues regarding cleanliness.

Temperamental air-conditioning

Several guests mention that getting the air-conditioning is something of a feat, with some describing it as a real challenge to bring the room temperature down to something that is near to acceptable.
