Latest Review

" Clean and relaxing. Breakfast is standard fare (pancakes/toast/fruit). Right by the university so plenty of cheap eating options close by. A short bus ride into central Austin (6th St etc). Limited parking and I got lucky getting a spot. The staff here are first rate. Very friendly and helpful and that's what makes this place a winner. Quiet during the night. An events board is updated daily letting you know what's happening in this fun city. "
