Pros: The hotel is in a wonderful location and the grounds are nicely kept, the front office/lobby area was clean and orderly. It was very quiet, which is
Cons: This area did not store what had been placed here so those comments were moved back to the 'experience' area.
Location: It is close to Dripping Springs and the hill country Galleria.
I have stayed here on previous trips. Everything was pretty much the same as in previous visits. Evidently, the management has changed and there are some updates that need to be made to the facilities. There was a noticeably unpleasant odor upon arrival. Since the room was clean, we assumed it was due to the cleaning agents used. A flat screen TV was installed on the wall, but the previous case furniture for the previous TV was still in the room and there were other cosmetic flaws due to the changes. Hopefully, this will be updated soon. We were also disappointed that the front office was not open for coffee as early the next morning as listed. These are minor things.

We are in the process of complete renovation, we just completed 10 rooms, all the rooms will be done in a few months.We currently keep the same operation hours like the previous owner from 7:30 AM to 12:00 midnight, and the breakfast is served from 7:30 to 9:00 AM, I live in one of the hotel room now, and always open the lobby and have the breakfast ready before 7:30 AM. We will serve the breakfast earlier after the lobby renovation. We will make your stay much more comfortable after the renovation. Thank you for your feedback.

Great potential

Posted Oct 17, 2016
Pros: Nice size rooms and location with view.
Cons: Breakfast selection was way too limited.
Location: Lakeway golf courses, Lake Travis, lots of restaurants and a nice big new park are nearby.
This hotel room was roomy and clean. The whole property has great potential to be a nice boutique hotel in the Lakeway area. New owner working to get it there.

Pros: Absolutly nothing!
Cons: Everything sucks
This hotel is horrible for the price they charge for a room. We arrived late after a wedding and had an early flight next morning. There was a party outside by the hotel pool and people were extremely loud. I called and asked the front desk guy if we could please be moved to a different room because people were too loud. He was rude and said he had no other rooms and there was no refunds. I asked if he could please talk to the people in pool since it was 2am. He said that was not his job and that if I didn't like it I could leave! We stayed but got very little sleep :-( The bed was very uncomfortable, room is very outdated. The bathroom was outdated and some tiles were chipped and coming apart. The toilet paper holder was rusted and broken. For the amount of money they charged for the room they could at least spend some money on updating and maintaining the rooms at hotel. This hotel has the worse customer service I've ever had.

Close but no cigar !

I chose this hotel because it was close to dripping Springs and a bike ride I was participating in for the weekend. I requested a downstairs room because I would have my bike and was given an upstairs room the only one available that they had recently remodeled and the room smelled like fresh paint which I'm Allergic and has a hard time tolerating. The stair steps were in bad need of being replaced or repairedThe TV did not work but staff were able to get it working. Overall I would say it was not worth $100 and don't plan to stay there again. I called the hotel a couple of times and no mention of remodeling

Nice hotel in Lakeway Tx

Renovations were being made to the total property by the owner. However Bing (owner) went out of his way to see that our stay was memorable. Great view and clean rooms are important to me and this place passed. While it does need updating the owner is doing just that. Our room was in good shape. You can't beat the price point if that matters. Very comfortable.

Love that area of Lake Travis!

Pros: The price....the new owners.
Cons: Maid service, better coffee is a must!, extend breakfast on the weekends to 10 AM at least,
Location: Great location just outside of Lakeway! Golf, Lake Travis, restaurant options, mall, grocery stores, anything and everything
The new owners were doing a lot of work to the property to bring it back in shape. Stayed there a few years ago and was quite pleased. Obviously, the previous owners quit putting money into the hotel. A few disappointments this time. Stayed two nights....they provided us more towels for the bathroom but did not clean the room for some reason? Beds were not made, trash still on the table. My wife thought the coffee was horrible. Weak like tea with terrible taste. Luckily there is a Chick Fil A almost across the street where we ate breakfast. Who closes breakfast at 9 AM on a weekend? Otherwise, the owners were friendly and I will give them another try. Best price in the entire area.....

Although our stay was one night, we noticed that the building had fallen in some need of repair. However, the customer service we received was very good!
