Pros: Not a thing at all!Cons: The drug deals in the parking lot with plenty of thugs lurking around. The room itself was very stinky muggy and hot with cockroaches already living there permanently.
Only if you're desperate!Pros: I liked that I didn't die or get hurt.Cons: It's in a sketchy part of Austin. There are roaches everywhere. The bathroom floor was literally mushy, because water had gone under the stick-on floor laminate. Beds were far from comfortable, had a dip in the middle of the mattress. Pubes on the pillow (!!!!). No fridge or microwave. No closet.
But the people were the worst part. Other guests were so seedy the motel has a security guard at night and a CURFEW. I witnessed a fist fight and the police showing up. I heard a very loud verbal fight outside my window the first night, then the second night was worse: someone kept yelling, "NO PLEASE DON'T!" over and over, then I heard what sounded like physical struggle, and then a lot of human whimpering. I literally couldn't tell if they were male or female. It was horrifying. I called 911. I will NEVER stay there ever again.
Pros: Room was clean and comfortable. It was definitely on the small size for a room and was a little cramped for the 4 people we had staying there but for the price it was certainly acceptable.
Pros: LocationCons: Bed sheets stained, water pressure super low, very flat pillows, remote control for TV not working, requested to change rooms and not help with that
Do not stay here!!!!Cons: Found 7 roaches in the first hour! Water pressure wasnt enough to get the shampoo ouf of my hair. There is only sheets on the bed so if u get cold suck It up. Worst motel I have ever been to!!! Will not stay here again. Would rather sleep in my car.
No wayPros: NothingCons: Felt unsafe.. Looks like a hotel that rents by the hour. Suppose to stay 4 nights, stayed 1 night and went to a nearby wyndam for remaining 3 days of our stay.. We normally not very picky because we don't spend much time in a hotel room but this was a miserable nights experience..
Wouldn't stay here for free. Dirty, rude staff, uncomfortable beds....Pros: Nothing at all. My entire stay was upsetting. Unfortunately I actually had several windows open and thought this was the correct hotel I wanted, but I booked the wrong location. I have stayed in their two bed rooms and had no issue. Cons: Floors were sticky and dirty when we arrived. Seems like the cleaning crew probably mops 30 rooms with the same water. If they mop at all.
Bed was literally THE MOST UNCOMFORTABLE bed I have ever slept in at a hotel. It was lumpy and the springs were not good. Sleeping on a board with clean sheets would have been more desirable.
Non-smoking room smelled like a smoking room with the heavy attempted mask of a bad air freshener. It smelled like a bathroom stall at a truck stop.
Low water pressure from the shower made it near impossible to shower. However, the pressure from the sink was stupid high...like a jetstream.
Rude front desk staff who were incredibly unprofessional
- Check in was prolonged as they sat and laughed with a customer about his signature.
- Tried asking for two pillows, they stated they had no extras.
- Asked for shampoo/body wash and was told they had none.
- Called to see about switching rooms because of how unbearable ours was along with the upstairs neighbor who sounded like they were moving in and rearranging furniture until 2am, and then as early as 6am when loud dragging nosies woke us up.... Was told at 11pm they were booked full and was hung up on.
I've stayed at this location 3 years ago, in a room with two double beds and had no issues. The room was clean and the bed was pretty average. But the single double bed room I stayed in was absolutely unacceptable. I try to stay in Motel 6 because generally, I have no issues with their rooms.... But I will be calling their main office and reporting my stay. They need to definitely do something about the service at this location.
Non refundPros: We didn't get at time, because our flight was late twice, so i called motel 6 to said that we arrived late, at 8am and then didn't refund our money because we didn't stay there.
Gem in the middle of road constructionPros: Room was cool and the shower hot and relaxing.Cons: Road construction - but hey this is I35 there is always construction :-)
