Charming inn with friendly and accommodating staff
Posted Feb 13, 2017
The best word to describe this inn is charming. I came to Austin on business and stayed at this inn because it was priced right and was near the convention center. It also had a decent rating here. I'm glad I did. I'll be coming back with my family at some point. They'll love it.
The inn consists of separate houses with little courtyards and gardens in between and around. My room was in the Victorian house. The downstairs portion of the house was all comfort areas, including a dining room, a reading room, a waiting room and a larger living room. You could host a medium-sized reception in these areas. Upstairs were the rooms. I believe there were three in my house, plus a cozy common room with a balcony. The room was comfortable and clean. There were some imperfections (slightly peeling wallpaper, for example), but nothing unclean.
The continental breakfast runs from 8 to 10, but guests are welcome to serve themselves any time before. I had early meetings both days I was there and needed to eat breakfast at 5 a.m. No trouble. Everything was ready, just kept in the fridge.
The staff were very accommodating. They offered me wine or beer (free) when I came in, and Kelly actually ran to the store to make change for me. All around, it was a great experience.
Note this is not like a hotel with 24-hour office hours. But you can check in/out outside of office hours. You just have to let them know in advance.
