                  the hotel was close to my destination

                  didn't like the hotel's over all appearence

                  Friendly staff. Close to downtown area and target/walgreens in case of an emergency need (e.g. toothbrush, etc). Breakfast was filling.

                • Couple
                  6.2

                  Probably the location and the cleanliness of my room. It was very clean and the staff were very friendly. It is not a luxury hotel but for the price I would suggest to everybody to stay here

                • Couple
                  7.8

                  The price was unbeatable. We were in a convenient location, and the service was fast and friendly. The room was what we expected, but what's most important is that it was clean and comfortable. The room had great cable and even had a microwave. I've never stayed in a Super 8 before, but I would definitely do it again.

                  The furnishing are cheap, but it's what we expected. The room was quite loud since we were placed next to the office.

                  The hotel was equipped with everything which was very convenient. The free breakfast also included scramble eggs and bacon which was fantastic.

                  The only thing I would note is that if you are staying in a room on the first floor you might want to wear ear plugs when you sleep because it was noisy around our room. All in all though, great, great, value and I would stay there again.

                  This is the 3rd time we've stayed at this Super Eight. We travel down from Dallas to watch the Texas Stars Hockey team play in Cedar Park. The main reason we book here is the great rate we've gotten online and it's a descent Hotel for that price. Usually, at these rates you get what you pay for, a nasty Hotel room! I think it's the best kept secret in Austin when the rate is right.

                  The Hotel was fine but the Google Map has them located across I-35 on the other side of the highway.

                • Group of friends
                  7.4

                  For what you pay, this hotel is perfect. Their hot breakfasts are novel (Texas-shaped waffles!) and their amenities are abundant (ironing board, hangers, desk, refridgerator, cable with HBO).

                  A few concerns: the walls are paper thin and cool air from the AC escapes pretty quickly. Expect to have the AC on most of the time (both for airflow and noise reduction of I-35 outside). Also, the refridgerator is within a closed space, so the dissipated heat stays near the fridge and essentially warms the contents inside (expect to crank the fridge up as well).

                  Staff is supercool, rooms are cosy&clean and the breakfast is awesome! Plus free coffee the whole day :)

                  Good price. And they had breakfast.

                  They ran out of the good breakfast stuff by 8:30ish.

                  The location was great for the graduation I was attending.

                  The hotel rooms definitely need renovating. I paid $119 for a room that should have gone for $50. As a result, I felt I was taken advantage of and won't stay at the hotel again.

                • Couple
                  8.2

                  I work in the hotel industry and thought your staff was very friendly. The girl at checkin even wished me a happy bday after noticing the date on my drivers license. Their was always a housekeeper busy cleaning and smiling as well.

                • Couple
                  7.0

                  I like the convenience of the location- just four miles from 6th street, and I like that it's so laid back. Good place to stay when you don't want to be bothered.

                  Our room was a little dirty and worn in- some carpet needed replacing and the door to the bathroom was banged up and looked less than that. Plus I got a smoking room and it smelled like it hadn't been aired out in a while. But other than that, the room was fine.

                • Couple
                  9.6

                  I Liked the location and the price

                  We booked a King size bed only to get up to our room and discover it was two full/Queen bed. Went to the front desk and was told that some famous boxer was checking in and they gave my room to them.

                • Older travelers
                  6.2

                  Location within reasonable taxi distance of town. Note it is not "close" to downtown.

                  Usual problem of any hotel on an interstate : 24/7 noise of 18 wheelers.

                • Single
                  9.6

                  I have leg problems. I notified the staff prior to arrival and I was placed in a ground floor room just at a handicapped parking space and easy walking to the lobby for breakfast. The breakfast was wonderful for a simmple get started meal for a busy day. Location was perfect for UT access and the location of my meetings. I will be returning for more meetings and will book with Super 8 Univerfsity again for sure.
