We stay we at this location whenever we are visiting friends in Austin. The staff is always excellent and their remodeling was nicely done. It's great to be recognized as a Priority Club Member

Easy to get in and out of Downtown Austin - 10 minutes by highway. For SXSW, it was a great option as the rate was affordable and the accommodations clean.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TechFan77 Clean & Comfortable
Although not the easiest hotel to find, when we called the front desk at midnight to get clarification on directions, the man was very helpful and pleasant; we were close by and he was so detailed that we had no further problem getting there. We found the room to be clean and the beds comfortable. All the staff was friendly, happy to assist with any questions, and eager to please. Our trip centered around the downtown area so it was wonderful being as close to our points of interest as it was. The only thing that needed attention was the tub/shower. It did not drain very well; I forgot to tell anyone, as it was not a serious problem. Otherwise we had a great experience and we would definitely stay there again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SALEEMFL123 Lousy cleaning crew
Eight in the morning, the cleaning crew started to knock on the doors. Between 8 and 9 they had knocked 3 times on my door. I felt that I was staying in a third world hotel. Why can't the management tell the crew which rooms have been checked out.
I will never stay in this hotel again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gray man Been here several times
Most of my stays have been very good, but a few times I've had not so good rooms and service. I stay in Austin frequently and have been at this HI before. I book in advance (don't even try to use the HI app) and check in after 3 pm but usually before 5pm and have requested certain rooms due to knowing which ones I DON'T want. Most of the time I get a good room, but a few times the rooms and service have been lees than par. For instance, I notice that the maid service isn't shy about eating breakfast with the guests and have come back to my room, turned on the TV and had a spanish language station tuned in. They have made some improvements though. Now the water heater works and the police have caught the vehicle break-in ring. All joking aside, this part of Austin does not have crime. In fact, crime is almost unheard of around the hotel, so this was an isolated incident that hopefully won't happen again. I do like staying here, as most of the staff are friendly, courteous and helpful, and it is a convenient place to stay. Food is average for breakfast, and there are plenty of places to eat or shop close by. Morning commute from Hwy. 290 is always congested, so you better leave by 7:00-7:15 am if you want to get anywhere. If your not in a hurry, relax until after 8:30-9:00 am before venturing out. Rush hour is pretty bad between 4:30-6:00 pm, so plan accordingly.
I will stay here again and again, as it is one of the better south Austin hotels.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ppra1 Better places for price.
Booked this room on rewards points and was still charged my credit card. Yet to see refund. Beds not as comfortable as usual in HIE. Breakfast food as usual in HIE sub par. I am platinum member and received two half size bottles of water on arrival. Hope that didn't break Holiday Inn giving away stuff that way. As I have said before HIE seems to be losing their edge that they originally had. Travel a lot for business and will start staying elsewhere.

We always stay at a Holiday Inn Express when we travel. We had a great experience as we can always count on the room to be clean and homey. The beds are always great.
Only complaint is this place is hard to get to due to all the freeway set up around the location. For some reason the address did not show up on our GPS but we found it after driving around the freeway system.
The location was very close to our family we were visiting, so location is good, directions not so good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WD79 Wonderful Staff
Stayed at the location twice and both times were great. The only hang up that I found was the fact they only have one washer and one dryer. However, they did provide me complimentary laundry detergent, softner, and dryer sheets. The front desk staff was very helpful. I wish I could remember her name but she let us borrow her scissors so that we could finish or last minute Christmas gift wrapping. Thank you. The housekeeping crew was top notch. They kept our room very clean and even left a courtesy note for a cleaning because we accidentally left the privacy tag on the door. Thank you. The wonderful lady working the breakfast room did a great job. She even helped my wife make pancakes for my children. Thank you. If I stay in Austin again, I will definitely consider staying here, and I would recommend this location to my friends and family.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eagle 1 Good accomodations and excellent service
The owner and staff of this hotel were outstanding in providing us with excellent service and responding favorably to whatever we requested. We have returned to this hotel for several years(staying for up to 2 weeks at a time) primarily because the owner and staff give us the feeling that we are with family. We wouldn't even consider staying at another hotel

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cyberpage Milliken Stay At Holiday Inn Express
The staff from the maid survice to kitchen to front desk were all friendly and knowledgeable. Everybody smiled and said hello (you don't get that in California). We had an excellent stay. Our son and his family just moved to Austin and we will be coming back. There was another set of parents who have been coming to your hotel and when their son moved farther away they told us they would keep coming to your location regardless because they liked the place so much.
We really enjoyed the breakfasts. The gravy was top notch and a lot of things to choose from. Your pancake machine was a hoot.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Allen1345 Worst Holiday Inn I have ever stayed in
From the staff to the bed this hotel was atrocious. I travel frequently for business and have experience many different hotels but this is hands down the WORST hotel I have stayed at. The bed was below average which is tolerable if you have good customer service. The staff is very unfriendly and when the customer brings up an issue they point the finger at the customer, instead of accepting responsibility. When the issue was brought to management's attention they take the employees side and never looked at evidence that would support the customer. I have not even heard back from the General Manager.... This has ruined my relationship with Holiday Inn and they have lost my confidence in how secure my possessions are in my room and more importantly how I am valued as a customer. I am very disappointed in how this was handled but even more how they completely avoided responsibility and pointed blame where it was not due.

Nice place. Have stayed there before. Handy location. BUT, room was way too dark. Lights replaced with low power CCFL and we could not see to work at nite. Went to store and bought halogen bulbs to use while there. Pain, but it lit up the room.

Got to room about 2pm. Room was cold. Set unit for heat with setting of 72F. Got back to room about 11pm. Room must have been ~85F. Turned unit to cool, but never felt any cooling. Ran setting to minimum, still no cooling. By morning, room was comfortable, just in time to leave. Duh!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barronda79 A great palce to stay in Austin
This was my first experience with a Holiday Inn Express and it was a great one. I was unfamiliar with Austin so the front desk folks went out of their way to be helpful and explain what was going on around the Hotel and where the good spots to eat were.
The room was modern, clean and up to date. The shower was great with plenty of water pressure and hot water in the morning.The TV was great, and the free wifi helped me get some critical business done as well. I stayed four nights and had a very good time. I will stay again for sure.

I love the housekeeping they made sure your room was clean as it could be. Overall Jamie made the 2 week there fly by. If you keep hiring people like her peoples will come back for life!

Stayed 5 days and nights in October 2013. Great experience. Will be back next time we are in Austin Tx. Love the breakfast every morning. So easy to get up in the a.m. and walk down the hall to breakfast. Loved the treats you have on hand for sale. Ice cream, dinner entrees, cookies and drinks. No need to go out for snacks or find change for a machine several floors from you. Love this hotel.

The hotel was a good location to where I was working and the bonus of having lots of options for shopping and food across the highway is a plus. It's kind of isolated itself which isn't such a bad thing.
