              Cheap and decent, although it's noisy (highway). Good for the University. Excellent classic breakfast and good little restaurant next to the hotel (Star Seeds).

            • Family with children
              8.2

              Very friendly staff.

              The second night some people were using the pool at 4:00 in the morning and were very loud. They might should have the pool close at 11:00 pm and open at 7:00 am

            • Family with children

              Your on-line description of the hotel said it was 2 block from the University of Texas (with walking distance). That was very misleading because it was more than 2 blocks. The campus is very large and after walking almost a mile or as your add says 2 blocks we may have been on the outskirts of the campus. We ended up taking a Taxi the first morning and then learned the route to get there by car for the rest of our stay. Also there were no elevators and the pool was a joke!

            • Single
              8.2

              great staff, especially the front desk. Funky 24-hour restaurant is fun too with pretty (hot) waitresses. Though I didn't use the pool, I appreciated it being there.

              it is located next to an overhead freeway, I didn't mind but others might.

            • Group of friends

              The rooms were clean and had been updated.

              When I arrived at the hotel, they did not have my reservation. Fortunately they were able to provide me with a room and charged the expected rate.

            • Single
              7.4

              I was allowed to check in early. The queen room I had reserved was not ready for an early check-in so I agreed to a double room that was. The room was clean & cool. The a/c worked great! There were sufficient towels & amenities.

              The parking lot was undergoing some construction during my stay. The workers were taking up a lot of the very small amount of room for parking so it was tricky getting in & out. The parking lot is very small. The "continental breakfast" left a lot to be desired. Some overripe bananas & a couple of packets of instant oatmeal don't exactly qualify but I guess you get what you pay for.

              8.2

              This Days Inn is run very well and gives you good value for the money. The staff was very helpful and courteous and the room was clean and comfortable.

              The location is a problem. They advertise University/Downtown in their name but they are only convenient to the University (20-25 minute walk to the meeting I had). "Downtown" was at least a 45 minute walk and in the heat we had (100° +) it was impossible for my wife to walk there while I was at meetings. If you are without car, count on having to take taxis to get "downtown".

              7.8

              The room was very good I spent two nights; I walked up until the center 2 miles and walked back in the night and I feel safe.

              poor breakfast, no continental just juice fruits milk and cookies. outside the rooms there is noise because of the HWY but inside room was very quite and clean.

            • Single
              9.2

              The staff was very helpful and friendly.

              Noise, both because of the thinness of walls resulting in the noise and the highway.

            • Single
              7.4

              Good value for money; very friendly and helpful staff.

              Some rooms do not have windows. Breakfast is very basic (no meat or cheese, for example)

            • Couple
              8.2

              Fair staff, near 24 hour restaurant, comfy bed

              It is near the highway, so if you are bothered by sirens, try another hotel

            • Single
              7.0

              Rooms excellent for the price. On par with much much more expensive rooms elsewhere.

              A bit of a walk from University campus (I had business at the AT&T Conference center) and 6th street (heart of downtown) rather far away

            • Group of friends
              7.8

              Room quality, cleanness, location

              The hotel is located close to the highway, so there is quite noisy even during the night

              9.2

              Close to university. Very nice and helpful staff

              A little bit too close to highway, although not really noisy. Very small pool
