I have stayed here multiple times and will again in the future! I was a nursing student and needed to be close to St. David's Hospital (which is right next store, you could walk there!). It looks like a small, older, Mom and Pop Motel but, it will suit your needs nicely! It has a small parking lot and sits...

This hotel is literally on the access road therefore, very noisy. There is no adequate parking and once parked, you could barely back out. They said they were pet friendly so I paid a pet deposit and an extra $10 per night however, there was absolutely no place to take the dog out. I had to walk around the building...

Other than close to downtown, this hotel is in a terrible location. No sufficient parking, right on the interstate access road (and i do mean RIGHT on). Pool was nasty. Room was clean, but not at all comfortable. And the AC was not turned on, even though we had made prior reservations, and it took over 2 hours to get...

Pathetically dirty inn. Needs some serious upgrades. Based on previous reviews, the owner doesn't seem to care. Proximity to downtown is probably the only positive here. Worst $110 I've ever spent. Avoid at all costs!

The Rodeway Inn University is a great place to stay if you need an inexpensive spot near West 38th Street in Austin. My husband and I were very pleased with the friendly and helpful staff. As requested, our Room #208 was on the ground floor. The two comfortable double beds had wonderful puffy pillows, clean sheets and cozy, colorful bed...

Dump,These pictures do not reflect the rundown state of this hotel.Pictures must have been taken the day the hotel first opened. Definitely not worth the money. Chose this hotel because of limited availability for the F1 at the Circuits of the Americas,although organisation for the race was fantastic,this hotel let Austin down.

Although this location is near downtown and the university, this hotel sits right on the highway (I-35) and a busy service road. It is very noisy as you can hear the traffic in the room. There is absolutely no curb appeal and the décor is mismatched and very dated. I would not stay there again.

I have stayed here several times with and without my spouse over the last three years. While not inspiring or a destination in any way, this place serves its purpose and serves it well. If you are in Austin to experience the town and wish to save money for just that, then Rodeway Inn is a good choice. Access to...

This hotel is very well located - on I-35, less than a mile from UT Austin, and about a mile from downtown Austin. I was able to stay there for $60, although that rate may have been a result of me booking at the last minute. It's shaped as a tall U, which makes it feel protected, small, and comfy...
