Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cindy478 Great Hotel, but poor workout facility
The rooms in this hotel are spacious and clean. The staff is very helpful and polite. However, the workout room is pitiful. The equipment is old and uncomfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gray man Great place to stay in South Austin
I have stayed here many times over the past year. Having lived in Austin, I am familiar with the area the Holiday Inn Express is located. It is close to good shopping and entertainment. The best thing I have noticed is the staff has moved it up a notch since I first started booking my stays. They are much more friendly and attentive than before, and I don't mean turn around of staff. I think they have had better training and are more confident in their abilities to serve their guests. I was more impressed with the front desk assistance that always seems to come with a smile - a quality most hotels seem to have lost. Kudos to you, Holiday Inn Express Sunset Valley!

The room was clean and comfortable. The temperature was just easily adjustable. If I had to be picky, I'd prefer more breakfast food selection =) Overall a very satisfying experience!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chapel Dulcinea Terrible check-in and check-out
I booked the room for my family of 5 online. The online process was easy to work with. When arriving to the Hotel, it looked fairly new on the outside. When I checked in I was not given the room I booked online. I was told I reserved a room with a King Bed and Sofa Bed instead of two Queen Beds and Sofa Bed. I was told the Hotel was 100% booked and I could not changed my room. After I pulled out my phone with the email confirmation the clerk at the front desk said she would find someone that was willing to change room types on their reservation and she was able to get the room I originally booked online.
The room was okay. Basic size room with a sofa squeezed in. Not what I would call a suite room. I knew what I was getting before I checked in from the pictures online. Was using the Hotel because the wedding party wanted to be close to Chapel Dulcinea. The breakfast room was nice and the food was good.
The check-out was just as bad as the check-in. The Hotel tried to bill for more than I booked the room for. The hotel clerk said I would have to wait till Monday when a Manager was available to fix my bill. I called customer service for the chain and after an hour the Hotel was able to fix my bill.

No complaints. It was clean and comfortable! Everything was ready for us when we got there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Travelqueen50 Good Location close to West Lake Hills
We usually stay here when we are in the area. No complaints. It always smells so fresh and clean when you walk in the door.
Sometimes GPS goofs up but just stay on the feeder road and you will see it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Where am I today? Convenient to everything
I frequently stay at HIEs and this is a typical property. The rooms are clean and the value is good. This particular property is convenient to downtown Austin, the airport and virtually every other destination I needed to find in the area. For that reason I have stayed there on several occasions.
The one thing I would say about HIEs is that the breakfast gets old after three days and we find ourselves not availing ourselves of it after a couple of days. Having said that, if you are in a rush and need a quick bite, this is a good option. But for my wife who avoids dairy and gluten, the choices are very limited.
My only suggestion to this particular property is that I usually reuse my towel, but this property did not give a reuse option. This seems odd in a state that is experience a serious drought.
All that said, I will likely stay ther next time I am in Austin.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FloridaTraveler Very Nice HIE
We ended up staying for three nights while touring Austin. The hotel is neat and clean, and well maintained. The staff is very nice and welcoming. In particular, we want to recognize Rhenna, who was there when we checked in each evening. She is the best of the best. She is warm, welcoming, caring and extremely helpful! A genuinely nice person who is perfect for that position or any public relations position.
She, along with everything else she did for us, recommended the Royal India Restaurant, which is right next door. She was spot on; it is the best Indian Restaurant we have ever eaten at.
Many thanks to a wonderful lady!!

My expectations were exceeded from the moment I checked in until i checked out. The desk personnel, including the desk manager, were most helpful, and professional.
The room is large, clean and comfortable. I do recommend you request a pool view room, this will keep you away from the traffic noise that naturally comes with a property so conveniently located close to major roads.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SuzyBee Great location, but our suite was too noisy!
The room was spacious and very comfortable, with a luxurious king bed, queen sleeper couch, coffee and dining table with two chairs. The room had four big windows. Unfortunately, the suite was situation right on Highway 290 and a giant cement culvert. Very noisy. I had to wear earplugs to sleep at night.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by candyflamingo Holiday Inn Express, Austin
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
