A Great Place for A Family – I would strongly recommend Habitat Suites to friends and family. A family of five, we had a two bedroom suite - two bedrooms with a sleep away couch. Everyone was comfortable in the hotel. The kitchen is fully loaded with a refrigerator, electric stove, microwave, pots and pans.
We were very impressed with the breakfast and the evening brunch. There is absolutely no reason to go out in the time for a better breakfast unless you want a steak for breakfast. Infact, we felt that we only needed to be responsible for one meal a day.
The staff was very pleasant.
Stayed almost every year – We keep coming back here whenever we visit Austin. From arrival when we are greeted by friendly staff, to the big rooms & nice kitchens, to the great healthy breakfasts, we like it. Even the landscaping is organically grown & edible.
I like the Green consciousness that is followed in running this place day to day. Wish we could walk to get somewhere besides Highland Mall, tho. The location means we need a car or to ride on city buses for a while to get downtown.
I love this place! – Habitat Suites rocks for multiple reasons:
1.Green, green, green. The most sustainable, amazingly conscious hotel I have ever stayed at and they have been that way before it seemed important.
2. Great suites, one and two bedroom with kitchen, which let's me cook when I want, which saves me money and is more healthy.
3. The grounds are gorgeous! Fig trees bursting with ripe figs, native landscaping, lovely pool and hot tub not overloaded with chlorine. Could use some aesthetic work, but water is clean. Truly an oasis along I-35.
4. Free Breakfast and happy hour. Great breakfast where you can get hearty whole grain cereal, or bacon and eggs. Starbucks coffee, Tazo tea and regularly stocked black tea from China. Offer Sucanat, not just sugar. Even udon noodle soup for Asian travelers.
5. Staff is great, but they are light staffed on weekends, so just be aware.
Location is odd, but the access to I-35 is relatively easy if you use St. John's exit. Yes, Sugar's in next door. Ignoring it is easy. Highland Mall is not a destination of any kind, so hop on the highway to shop elsewhere. Also,it is an older hotel, so furniture is dated to early 90's. Could use a fashion update in the rooms, but otherwise clean.
I've stayed here and family has stayed here multiple times. I actually lived here 30 days after a house fire and loved it. My kiddo loves it too!
Great Place for the family! – What a great place to stay with a family. My two little boys loved the pool and the food in the morning! Best value in austin!
Habitat is Nice Habitat – This was a great stay. I love this hotel and will return again. It is a good place to stay.
My wife and I are from Bradford, Massachusetts and missed the comfort of home, but habitat was a nice home away from home. Very spacious!

best place to stay – We liked staying here and will stay here again. It was close enough to UT and downtown that travel time was not an issue The breakfast buffet and happy hour snacks were good, beds were comfortable and we had a full kitchen in our suite. It was perfect for staying over with children, not so sure I'd go here for a romantic vacation, but great for a family trip.
Great getaway, breakfast and close to attractions – I have been staying at Habitat for over 8 years and always felt it is a hidden gem. The initial attraction was it was one of the first "green" hotels, but the added bonuses include quiet, serene surroundings, an oasis pool with a waterfall and gardens. The fabulous full breakfast buffet includes fresh and organic offerings alongside some delicious breakfast entrees, Starbucks coffee and Tazo teas. Staff is always friendly and helpful, and the proximity to attractions is very close. A great deal!
Great Hotel – This hotel is a great place to stay for people visiting Austin or even people needing an extended stay. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean, the staff is super friendly, and the breakfast is by far one of the best hotel breakfasts I have ever had. Perfect place for families to stay. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Highly Recommended – A great selection of beverages and snacks each evening. Comfortable and clean rooms. Relaxing atmosphere with beautiful natural surrounds and peaceful silence not expected in this location which is very good (close to downtown) and within walking distance from the mall. Free hot breakfast that includes eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, hot and cold cereals, fruits, juices, milk, coffee and teas. Also has a Happy Hour with a vegan/vegetarian choice along side the ‘normal’ types of selections. Even has posted quiet hours notices to guests. Highly recommended!
great suite hotel – The room was very clean, the grounds were beautiful, and the breakfast buffet is the best I've ever experienced for variety of food and hot tea. Everyone on the property was very friendly and helpful.
