Great Spot and a Great Price
This condo was an excellent and more affordable alternative to a hotel. The photos are exactly what the condo looks like and are not misleading in any way. The place was immaculately cleaned when we arrived. The bathrooms were well stocked with toilet paper and the kitchen had paper towels and dishes readily available. The laundry area was equipped with a washer and dryer that both worked very well and the televisions were simple and easy to operate with a wide variety of channels as well as DVR service. The owners were very accommodating and willing to assist, but kept their distance enough in order to allow us to enjoy our stay without interruption.
There were a few areas of the floor that were damaged due to structural shifting but were covered by rugs; if unaware a person could easily lose their balance and fall down due to these uneven spots. I am 6'3" and was able to sleep in the bed alongside my wife and use the shower, but I think anyone larger than me would need a bigger bed and higher shower head. The beds were queen sized which is noted in the description, so use your own judgement of whether this is large enough for you. There were plenty of blankets, linens, and towels for the week that we stayed there and they were all very comfortable.
The location is great, very central to a variety of places for eating and shopping, whether you desire local foods or chain stores. We especially liked The Domain, an awesome outdoor mall with a very nice movie theater that serves food and beverages (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic). The neighbors were friendly when we saw them, however the college aged adults below us did play loud music on a weekend night until one in the morning. There is a very nice hospital within a 2 minute drive of the condo. Thankfully we did not need to visit it, but it is there in case it is needed while visiting.
The fitness center was the only substandard portion of the apartment complex. It would be great for someone wishing to do cardio exercises on one of the treadmills, elliptical machines, or rowing machine, but there is only one weight machine in the gym that is comprised of cables and pulleys. No free weights were to be found, so no real weight lifting.
Overall this was an excellent place to stay and would definitely recommend this condo for friends and family to use if they were wanting to visit Austin.
