"The hotel was beautiful, from the lobby and grounds to the room. I liked the bedside clock with temperature and forecast. No shower cap provided, and the pillows and towels weren't as plush as I like. My only big complaint was that I didn't get the wake-up call I requested. All the employees I met were gracious and professional. The amenities were just adequate, and The Carillon restaurant wasn't open for dinner on Thanksgiving.2019-11-30"

"Great place to stay, especially if you need to be near Austin Heart Hospital. There was a Denny's restaurant within walking distance of the hotel. The room was clean, and the bedding was excellent.

"The AC in our hotel room didn't work. We called the front desk and were told someone would be sent right up, but no one ever came and no compensation was offered. I was disappointed that breakfast wasn't provided, and the only coffee was expensive Starbucks.2016-03-10"
"This motel was disgusting. The front desk clerk was eating tamales when I arrived and didn't wipe her hands, so the room cards and receipt got grease stains on them. The security latch on the door was broken. There were No Smoking signs everywhere, but I counted 11 cigarette burns on the edge of the bathtub. Don't stay here.2022-05-27"

We decided not to stay.2016-03-08"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
