This hotel was fabulous! Plenty of parking, and the room was very clean and modern and included fluffy nice towels and little toiletries Had everything my daughter and i needed for her gymnastics event in the area We where greeted with very friendly staff when we arrived

The lobby, hallways and common areas where all very well kept We did jump in the pool and enjoyed it We also did eat the breakfast buffet, they do charge extra for the breakfast which we though came with the room but we paid it and where satisfied The server even went above and beyond and brought my daughter a bowl of strawberries because the buffet fruit bowl had run out and that’s all she was wanting Location was also nice, it’s close to enough fast food places to grab and go when running to the event and back We would definitely stay there again

Eden Rule

Rooms are typical for a hotel, the only staff member we experienced was nice They add odd amounts for deposits and incidentals so keep a close eye on your bill and charges I experienced this as well as others ahead of me in line discussing it at check in/check out

The worst part is it is very loud outside being as it is right off the freeway I’m usually not bothered by noise but between the loud cars driving by all night and the a/c system turning on and off every 10-15 minutes, this was a terrible place to stay if you want uninterrupted sleep Hope you are a heavy, heavy sleeper Sounded like a drag race going on as cars revved and sped past all night Had the a/c set as low as it would go because the room was very stuffy feeling, and I guess they have a timer set or the system is guarded because it would not stay on I’ve never had this happen Between the noise of the system shutting on and off and then the temperature getting stuffy, cool, stuffy, cool all night, I couldn’t sleep Overpriced to start with and then difficult to get any sleep made it worse Oh, and don’t even get me started on the sorry excuse for pillows Don’t waste your money here if you need to sleep and have an early morning or long drive the next day

Shared management with the Marriott next door (huge conflict of interest)Been staying here for 3~ years now, same account same company card, no issuesManager needs more training himself, as well as better training the staff at the Marriott next doorThe guy at the front desk here was great, was on the ball “ya no worry just need to verify it now, but my manager has to do it”

Manager says no because I got upset when given the CONFIRMED WRONG info next doorWent to a different location, had no trouble getting verified and checked in, 3 years down the drain due to bad management

I had an awesome experience at the Lake Austin Spa Resort this week The staff was fantastic – they were welcoming, friendly and willing to make great suggestions on everything from meals to spa treatments Everyone was super – the front desk staff, the food and beverage team, the spa staff, the activities team and the maintenance staff all went above and beyond

Keith Nelson, the resort manager, was particularly greatThe resort is casual, which I love, yet the food and services were top notch They are making noted upgrades and I expect it will be even better on my next visit I highly recommend!

Steam shower has tons of mold Swimming pool has algae and needs to be scrubbedThe massage didn’t last the entire time; it was cut by 8 minutes

If you go, ask for a timer or set one on your phoneThe staff is very friendly and welcoming They are trying to make the best of the situation The massage was goodFood and drink are ok A few drinks and we felt nothing and we normally don’t drink so we expected to at least have a buzzThe price…2 massages, lunch for one, and a few cocktails $800 This price includes 23% service/gratuity on everything $35 per person to use the showers and poolThis place needs a full renovation to even justify the price and hype

Kimberly Ketchersid

This was my second and final time using this spa Y’all there are so many better options in Austin; don’t be fooled !The good – my massage was wonderfulThe BAD -Total lack of professionalism by the spa attendants

No tour, no offer of water , nothing! I brought my mom as a guest and we received zero help whatsoever- the facilities – the hot tub was dirty with mold around the steps, the sauna was out of service and the steam room had one flickering light ( out of 3 total, 2 were dead)- the FINALE- undisclosed service charge We even specifically asked if it was included and I was told NO I added gratuity on top of the service charge Called twice to get clarity, even then they refused to disclose what the 23% was used for Until I refused and pressed for how much went to my therapist ( as she deserved it ) But there was no way I ate over $200 worth of trailMix and the amenities were not maintained!Never again

The hotel appears to be well kept, based on the two rooms we have seen We requested a move to another room only because it overlooked the meeting spaces and the air conditioning units We were moved to a room with better views from one corner of the hotel

The desk staff was very accommodating even with low availability Love the free underground parking, especially when the temperatures were soring above 100 F

David Schultz

Hotel is really nice, pleasant Bed was a bit too firm for our liking, but it’s impossible for a hotel to please everyone in this regard We were not impressed with the lounge on the top floor, it wasn’t all that busy but we were ignored for quite awhile before we decided to just walk over to one of the restaurants at the retail facility next door

It was my first time using this establishment and the decor was nice Once in the rooms I found them to be spacious and neat The couch was too hard for my liking but that’s just my opinion

The restroom, beds, tables and kitchen area was clean I would suggest the housekeepers check the pull out bed under the couch because food from a previous guest was found but mistakes happen and I don’t hold it against them or the company The staff at the front desk was professional and nice I didn’t have the pleasure to meet any other staff I did not get the chance to try the breakfast downstairs so I have no comment on it I did notice the gym downstairs and the restrooms and they were both clean The view from my room was amazing I could see the pool and the lights it was beautiful to look at I wish I had more time to enjoy all the amenities they had to offer

Matthew Rogers

I’m sum it up like this great ambiance and atmosphere the decor pulls you in and there’s a lot to look at The service is top notch everything is well stocked the breakfast is better than average with a lot of healthy options The rooms are really set up well with wide entrances big closets cuz you never know

They have large TVS and even larger bathrooms and come equipped with those common amenities, hair dryer, etc The staff is more than eagerly willing to do and complete almost any requests made, also they’re very knowledgeable of the surrounding area when it comes to activities and local restaurants new and local favorites

Jeremy Cline

Well-appointed rooms and surprisingly good breakfast Stayed here for a work conference going on nearby Two strange things happened while I was there: (1) this hotel has a bar, but no one works it at night – what?! (2) A few of us were working in the lobby area and were asked to relocate to make room for a staff luncheon

How’s that for good ol’ Texas hospitality?

We had our wedding at Lucky Arrow Retreat and it was fantasticIt started off rocky, and I have to say I was pretty nervous when I was being introduced to my 3rd venue contact, but we scored big with Amanda She was absolutely wonderful to work with! The whole staff is fantastic

Upon our arrival they had champagne waiting in our cabin It was very sweetI will also acknowledge that when wedding planning, it is ideal for a venue to offer as much as possible When I started wedding planning I wanted a venue with all-inclusive options, a built in rain plan, etc, But then we toured Lucky Arrow One look at the overlook and we were sold It’s gorgeous We also knew that after years of not seeing family and friends due to the pandemic, we wanted to extend the option to stay to our guests Everyone together, yet with privacy It was perfect We prioritized atmosphere and laid back vibes and Lucky Arrow 100% deliveredIn speaking with Jen, the GM, we found out there are a bunch of plans in the works for the property, including additional wedding perks So make sure to askWould love one of those perks to be discounts on anniversaries for those who have had their weddings there ;)As far as areas for improvements, I do think the property could use some more trash cans, particularly around the pool area In the rooms as well I was also very unclear on how to contact anyone if anything was needed (To be fair, I wasn’t receiving any text communication from Lucky Arrow, but I know other guests were)It will always hold a special place in our hearts and we love that we can go back and stay anytime


The first impression was not the best I had secured a Yurt for the weekend celebrating a birthday I knew that visiting this facility there was an opportunity we may get booked same day as a private party which could affect the overall stay

This is something you are told when reserving a yurt or cabin Without going into any further detail the management here made everything right for us and made more than fair accommodations They have a cute pool space with cabanas At the center there is a small hangout spot where you can drink ( they provide drinks for a few hours) and there are charcoal grills with everything you need incase you wanted to cook your own food up Although the Yurts are fun, they do let in lots of noise and if its in your budget I recommend spending a little more for the cabin The trail around the area is great for a quick walk We spent a lot of time at multiple breweries and wineries very close to here There is a winery located next door too! Fun weekend getaway from the busy city

Christian deLarios

We went here for a wedding It sure is hot down there in the summer, but we loved the little cabins that were outfitted very tastefully, with a much more modern, minimalist flair than we expected No TVs in the rooms, but that’s to encourage you to interact with your friends and other guests that are there

We now want to plan a fall or winter getaway down there with some friends of ours

I have stayed here before; 2 years agoThey have Breakfast Buffet 2 years ago there was fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, sausage, cereals, coffee, a self serve waffle station, yogurt, toast and more

This visit, they had prepackaged and warmed bagel sandwiches, waffles ready made, cereal, and coffee The coffee was seldom checked I tried to get coffee from an empty urnThe breakfast was not at all what I had expected from previous staysOtherwise, it was very nice

Shirley Patino

The staff, hotel and room itself were great Very nice hotel I am disappointed, however on the breakfast set up

It was was nothing but packaged items … boxed cereal, boxed oatmeal, packaged egg sandwiches etc our goal was to be able to eat a small breakfast before getting back on the road but are now inconvenienced with having to stop for a decent breakfast

Keith McCook

Friendly enough front desk, and a clean property, but lots of little things made our stay just ‘OK’ Not enough parking (had to park at building next door), below avg breakfast options (even considering COVID restrictions), and unusably slow WIFI Our room was clean, but showed signs of wear (paint chips, dented furniture)

Not up to Marriott standards

Clean rooms, comfortable beds, and GREAT location near the Oasis, lake, and Vintage Villas (where our event was held) Food trucks and a gas station are directly across the street A CVS next door and grocery store in front

Excellent service from the staff and tasty, tipsy drinks at the bar Ms Jean was extremely kind, helpful, and full of life; she made great drinks too! We enjoyed our stay A few others in our wedding party stayed at a different hotel and had an awful experience We Highly recommend the Hyatt No problems with excellent service and location


We stayed here for one night, saving us a drive for a nearby medical procedure the next day This hotel is clean and located well Loads of restaurants with 5-10 minutes

The only thing we didn’t like were the beds The pillows just get flat after a while, and the bed in our room seemed so hard Neither one of us got a good night’s sleep That said, if I stay here again, I’m bringing my own pillows from home The breakfast was scrambled eggs, sausage links, breakfast potatoes, and french toast sticks, along with the other usual items like cereal and toast The cafe lattes are fabulous

My girlfriend and I stayed in the White Cloud Suite for our anniversary, and it was one of the best 24 hours of our lives We felt at home immediately when we got there, and the room was beautiful and comforting We spent the afternoon at Travis Lake and woke up early to watch the sunrise through our windows, which had a gorgeous view of the lake

I could not have imagined something more perfect Thank you!!

Rene McClanahan

When you walk through the gate you are amazed at the tranquility and breathtaking setting! Everywhere you look are trinkets and little gems that Cata has collected from her travels around the world The pool and hot tub are so relaxing and we loved the sound of the fountain that soothed our souls The room was extremely clean, super comfy bed, and also decorated perfectly! Everything you could ask for was provided, from the bath robes to the bug spray

We felt like we were all alone, however, when we came into contact with the staff and owners, they couldn’t have been more gracious We truly enjoyed our four days there and highly recommend!

Jennifer Calero

We really enjoyed our stay Austin is beautiful, and this bed and bed and breakfast made our trip even better! If you are staying in Austin and you like nature, this is definitely the spot We would totally stay again and probably will the next time we are in Austin

My Husband and I have stayed here several times The rooms are always very clean! However, it’s pretty much always noisy, especially at night with people coming and going at all hours I requested several items through the app, and never received them

The amenities are well maintained and pretty quite! The lounge is nice and clean, as well as comfy

Emily Laney

Fantastic 3-night stay in this Springhill suites Lakeway location Manager David was especially helpful Rooms were ultra quiet, very clean, and spacious with West Elm furniture

Good parking and safe location within 30 min of Austin Bonus that they greatly improved the hot breakfast since a previous stay here This hotel is well managed and well maintained 12/10 stars!

Hannah Mac

THIS IS A WARNING FOR ALL WOMEN The room was nice, clean However, there was a night shift employee who brought it upon himself to come up to mine & my sister’s room, after we had left the pool, and use the master key to invite himself in to our room unannounced

No knock, no call on the phone My sister had just gotten out of the shower and I was about to get in Luckily we had the door stopper on the door otherwise he would have fully entered When asked what he was doing, he claimed there was an emergency alert going off My sister and I had not hit any sort of button, and we asked the front desk if there was even an emergency button to hit and they said no We were highly confused by this encounter, as well as fully creeped out We will not be staying at this hotel again, and I hope this does not happen to any other women staying at this hotel & traveling alone either

Loved my stay at this hotel The quality of toiletries provided is really good especially the Dove products ❤️ We enjoyed a nice swim in the pool; beds were pretty comfortable Reception staff is very sweet and gave us extra pool towels

The morning breakfast had a lot of options and was delicious Dairy Queen and Convenience store is right next to the hotel which is a big plus Would love to come back and stay again sometime

It’s a Holiday Inn Express, but it’s one of the cleanest locations I’ve stayed atThe staff is friendly and helpful The area is quiet with plenty of amenities within a mile radius

There’s a fitness center and continental breakfast (with actual food)The only issue I had with this location was the small parking lot I say this because if you check in too late, your options are extremely limited

The location of this lovely hotel is breathtaking Green, rolling hills make this a delight for anyone who wants to be away from the busy downtown area The drive up makes you feel like you’re not in Texas

The staff friendly and welcoming The rooms were spacious, clean and offered what we needed The showers are awesomely spacious The robes and a welcoming bottle of wine in the room, were a nice touchThe biggest downside, toilet room has no doors, so absolutely no privacy


Was in Austin for surgery Stayed here and considering the circumstances, my wife and I really enjoyed our stay Parked in the Apple lot without issue, the valet folks were very friendly, the lobby smells amazing, the people at the front desk were kind, the bar and restaurant were fantastic, the room was large with a wonderful view, and it was very clean

The food was so good though Highly recommend the margarita pizza and the vodka pasta The pizza was one of the most delicious I’ve had to be honestAnything we needed was promptly delivered to our roomWould definitely stay again, and actually have some fun when I’m not so sore from surgery

Ed Wu

First off, Hotel Granduca is a very picturesque place It’s a great location if you’re looking for something quiet or romantic The breakfast is also great

So why the 2 star rating? Well, at night after my wife and our two daughters finished taking a shower, they began looking for a hair dryer but couldn’t find one I thought surely they weren’t looking carefully, but sure enough, there was no hairdryer I called the front desk and told them there was no hair dryer The lady said that housekeeping provides the hair dryers Just to be clear, I asked if that meant there usually aren’t hairdryers in the room, and she responded by saying that’s correct I thought this was weird, but brushed it off as maybe some sort of new hotel trend I then asked if we could get one from housekeeping, but she said that they were off for the night and only they had access to the hairdryers I could get one the next day if I wanted Well, that didn’t sit well with my wife and two girls who all have long hair They basically had to dry their hair as best they could with a towel and went to sleep with damp hair Not fun The next day when we checked out, I asked the lady at the front desk about the hairdryer situation and she said that the hotel does indeed provide hairdryers in each room and that someone could have gotten us a hairdryer the night before Too bad that never happened Not sure if the lady I talked to at night was new, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a case of misunderstanding since I was pretty clear about what we needed It’s a shame that our stay at the hotel had to be ruined by such a trivial matterUpdate: They said they would reach out to me privately They never did Not that I expected them to, but if you say you’re going to do something, then you should do it

I loved the view The room wasn’t bad at all The bed on the other hand was very lumpy and uncomfortable

I woke up with back pain Otherwise the view is nice and the patio view is impeccable They had a two bed room available for $100 cash It was worth the view and the complimentary breakfast in the morning Had a small microwave and refrigerator in the room The curtains were nice, kept the room dark and has a beautiful decorative beach like picture Overall I’d definitely go back Maybe next time get a king bed Thank you

Mandi Wood

I booked on booking mcom After I booked they called me to confirm we told them we wouldn’t be there till late (1am) they told us we couldn’t check in after 11 an canceled our room and kept our money!!! Completely unfair!!!! And I Contacted Booking

com and they sent an email to this hotel to try to get our money back and they wouldn’t do it

Michael and Kimberly

The room was good But there are a few issuesFirstly, breakfast for the rate is just pathetic

A doggy bag containing a muffin and a granola bar The weekend was better but even then it’s bear minimum Considering how much we paid that was just sad; this is no $60 a night hotel roomAlso the on site cleaning The rooms are great… 10/10 The pool however in the time we stayed was never checked and there was empty bottles and food wrappers in the corners of the pool area all weekWhen I checked out there was someone there, clearly not the manager who just snapped the cards out of my hand and said bye No hospitality Honest it is probably a good thing because if she would have asked how my stay was, I probably would have asked for a partial refundIf this was a one night stop (which does seem the case for most) then this place will do If I would have known about certain factors before I would have just gone to the Hampton up the roadThis place has potential, but seriously needs hospitality and management training

I’ve been coming here for a long time If you stay for a few days you definitely will love it I’m sure!Our experience at Aloft Austin NW was a solid okay, decent, good, nice, enjoyable one! There’s not very much I can say negatively about the entire experience However, if the hot tub/pool is one of your prerequisites, don’t make my mistake and assume that they’ll be available During our 4 nights stay both the pool and hot tub were off limits, not for a good reason either; even though the pool and hot tub were in working order, all were denied access to the area because the lock on the door was broken(an easy fix that was obviously not a high priority) tough luck, s happens life goes onThe positives were a clean room and a quiet room The room service were super friendly and welcoming The reason I’m giving 5/5 and not 4/5 is because they refunded us an entire night due to the above mentioned discrepancyBe aware, if you’re expecting a luxurious experience this place might not be for you bit for the price we paid, the services were well up to expectations

We really enjoyed our stay When we checked in Regina was extremely helpful I was traveling with my daughter and had been assigned a room right next to the bar

She was kindly gave us a quieter room Later she helped by giving us water and a forgotten toothbrushThe room was modern and comfortable I would highly recommend

The location was good, near a lot of shopping I gave this a 3 star because for starters the hot tub was closed The pool is advertised as “heated” but it felt cold or at least my perception of heated was incorrect

The room was nice, kind of small, facing the interstate No noise, but when we got there the cable was not connected for some reason Then the bathroom door was hard to close/open I believe it was a handicap room so this would be def hard for someone who is handicapped to open and closeI tried to order some food from the app but was told it was not connected to the kitchen I didn’t know until I waited almost an hour and no service So I chatted down and was told we would have to order at the front deskThe mobile key didn’t seem to work for the pool I didn’t try for the fitness areaThe staff was nice, no complaints there, the main area was niceFor some reason on Saturday night there were a lot of kids roaming around They were running the hallways Not the hotel’s fault but still it did add to my experience thereI would probably come back again

Honestly, my wife and I could not have been happier with our experience at Vintage Villas Sam, our coordinator along with Alex made sure we were on schedule and also kept our guests in checkThey constantly checked up on us and made sure we were properly hydrated (it was a hot day) by bringing us water

The venue was so easy to work with and Meghan made sure all the details were fleshed out We were also surprised by how good the food was! In addition, the venue was absolutely beautiful All of our guests were blown away by the views 10/10 stars!

Vintage Villas was the perfect place for our wedding to happen! Samantha was an amazing coordinator for my mom and me to work with Everything went off without a hitch because of them Our wedding cake baker messed up the delivery date in their system, so we didn’t end up getting a cake delivered

Well Vintage Villas ran to HEB during our ceremony, bought a round cake and sheet cakes, and decorated them with our flowers It looked beautiful, we had a cake to cut, and the guests all said the cake was so good (but you can never go wrong with HEB 🙂 ) The guests also loved the venue and said it was the best food at a wedding they’ve ever had I would recommend this venue over and over to any couple or family wanting a stress free wedding/planning experience They are WONDERFUL The view drew me in, and the service sealed the deal

And I came here and was able to finally breathe again and enjoy myself I will gladly return here again

Mark Amdahl

Our stay here was during off season, so the restaurant was relatively quiet, but they made us comfortable and let us sit outdoor on the deck where we could enjoy the gorgeous view of the sunset on the water Amazing! The food was delicious and my steak was cooked perfectly But the real highlight was the incredible service and attention we received

The manager Bai (not sure if I am spelling that correctly) was gracious,helpful, and attentive Our server Armand was so warm, personal and kind They really made the atmosphere and the experience quite special
