Overall Score3.0/ 5
I was in Austin this week for my 3-year-old son's eye sugery. I made a reservation at least a month prior to our stay. When I made the reservation I asked for an early check-in, due to the surgery and that we would be done by 11 am. When making the reservation the operator said that would be not a problem at all. We can get you in at 11 am. When I arrived at the hotel at 11 am, I went to check-in at the front desk and she informed me that she was not able to check us in that she didn't have any rooms availible. I proceeded to explain our situation and explain that when the reservation was made that we had told that it would be no problem to check in early. The clerk said well we don't have any rooms available until 4 pm. When I asked to have my money retuned so that I could go and find another room she said that I would not be able to do that I would have to call your service. So I went to my car to see what I could do with your service. When a manager got on the phone and we explained out situation he was able to call the hotel manager and believe this, I got right into a room. So the meaning of this is that they lie if they tell you that they don't have any rooms ready or available the chances are they do! Once we where able to get into the room the experience had gotten a little better. The room was nice and clean. The only thing is I wonder if this was not just a hotel. I believe that they allow people to live in this hotel. In passing, some of the rooms had their door open and you could tell that they had not just been staying a few nights but had been there for awhile. For the price of the room and the problem that I had at this hotel I would say that I will not come back to this hotel and stay again.
