Burleson, Texas
Reviewed yesterday NEW

The room was ok, what you would expect for a Super 8, which would usually run $80-$90 a night, NOT a $150, make that $ 172.50 after tax an night. Yes it's close to downtown, but on the other side of the freeway and about a 10 minute walk to the Capital. It was clean, comfortable but not worth $172.50...

The location of the property was prime and most attractions were minutes away. Rooms were very clean and the staff was helpful. The issue I had was that the parking area was extremely packed and it was hard to park. Upon check in you are given a parking pass and are told that you will be towed if you do...

Cramped noisy dated room right on the freeway. The only thing that was louder than the freeway was the crappy AC. I would never stay there again.

Good for what I needed it for. Just a place to sleep and shower basically during the madness that is SXSW. Room was clean, linens were clean, area was pretty safe and quick 10-15 min walk to 6th street action. Outside looks outdated, but the inside room was updated enough for my taste if you aren't looking for much frills....

The motel has everything you need for a budget stay. It was clean and comfortable. Only issues were the air conditioning/heating unit was very loud so could not have it on and watch TV and it can be loud with people walking by your room. It is walking distance to downtown Austin but it is not in the heart of...

For the price, you really can't beat a deal like this. Awesome location, within a 5-10 minute drive from downtown and seemed very safe. The rooms looked they might have been recently renovated since they were very clean, nice hardwood floors, great shower. Mattress was okay, and the pillows were excellent. However, I did hear some rats/mice scurrying in the...
