This Red Roof Inn is located a few miles north of the University of Texas in N Austin. It is right off IH 35, and is also close to every major highway that is in Austin. This hotel is in an older building with rooms you enter from the outside. The rooms themselves have been very clean (both stays), and the staff was courteous,polite,and very helpful with directions. The neighborhood the hotel is in the outskirts of has little to be desired, but there is security on site, and their guards actually patrol on foot instead of occupying a desk. Their rates are affordable, and because they are a little cheaper than most, they do not offer a breakfast. Only coffee and papers are available in the morning, but they have a coffee machine, so tea,cappuccinos,or chocolate is also available. There is also a Mexican restaurant on site, and they open early if you wish for breakfast tacos or even a couple of eggs. This restaurant has a good menu, large portions, and really will save some cash because it is really affordable. Try the beef fajita burito!
