Due to financial constraints and the central location, I chose this motel/hotel. I very rarely go to Austin so this location was perfect for getting to and from downtown without any trouble or headaches. The room was standard and met our--me and my girlfriend's--needs, though the beds were pretty stiff. The AC units worked extremely well though the parking was a little tight. Considering most of our time was spent out of the room, this was a perfect fit. Obviously, I wouldn't mind a nicer place, but hey, it got the job done.
Thought it was a very good hotel at the price and met all my needs being so close to the city centre. An ideal hotel for travellers or for people who just want somewhere simple where they can have a good nights sleep. The only problem i had with this hotel was the first room they gave me had no glass in one of the window panes, which i was a bit shocked at, however as soon as i reported this they gave me another room right away with no hassle. Dont think it would really be suitable for families or romantics due to the location.
I had a fine stay here in very hot 100 degree weather. I was grateful for the small refrigerator in the room, the cold drinks vending machines and the AC. Nothing fancy, but everything I needed for three nights. They were very friendly an helpful at the front desk. I loved the option to cook a Texas-shaped waffle for myself as part of the simple continental breakfast (the batter was made, the timered waffle iron was on -) fun! Reasonable price was and is a priority of mine and I would stay here again.
This hotel was exactly what the doctor ordered. We paid a fraction of what we would have otherwise paid at other very similar hotels for the ACL weekend. We were close enough to downtown/Zilker and our favorite perk/guilty pleasure Starseeds cafe was a walk across the street away. The hotel itself left nothing to write home about positively or negatively which is a good thing, as the price point often is accompanied by negative traits. If you're in town for a show and just need a bed, fridge and a toilet, without any (negative) surprises, this place will fit the bill.
Simple and humble hotel. Very convenient to work at the LBJ Library, 10-minute walk. Not many restaurants around, except for a good ethiopian restaurant next door. Good places for researchers and very cheap.
The Rodeway Inn is a pretty basic budget motel. It's not much to look at, and has virtually no amenities (except for free wireless Internet access), but it's located very close to the University of Texas' main campus in Austin, and is in easy driving distance from downtown Austin and the Capitol building. I found the manager to be very professional and courteous.
It was expensive but what I wanted was a good night's sleep and it was real quiet so I got that. I didn't eat the breakfast so cannot comment on that. I would have liked more restaurants nearby but the one that was close was quite satisfactory.
Was a very convenient location to the stadium, no problems walking there. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were neat property was well maintained.
Friendly service a plus. Convenient location for capital.
