You won’t be in the heart of SoCo if you stay at this Best Western, but you’ll be 5 minutes from all the action—and you’ll save considerable amounts of money. Good insulation in the spacious, attractive rooms keep you from hearing the nearby freeway—the hotel is on the I-35 frontage road—which is convenient for trips to central Austin and out of town. Lots of grassy areas, a tiled garden patio with a pool and hot tub, and a good on-site bar and grill make a stay here pleasant, while in-room refrigerators and microwaves and the inclusion of a full breakfast, parking, and Wi-Fi in the room rate add to the pocketbook appeal.
