This brand-new Holiday Inn is located right near the airport, making it the perfect overnight stop for families who are flying in late or leaving early and want to relax instead of rush. Or, you could make it your home base for the entire trip, since it also offers convenient access to downtown Austin, including cultural sites and the entertainment district. Kids age 19 and under stay free with their parents, and kids 12 and under (up to four) eat free in the onsite restaurant, making it a good, affordable option for families on a budget.
The Holiday Inn offers both rooms and suites, with varying amenities. Both include refrigerators, microwaves, luxurious bedding, complimentary coffee/tea makers and supplies (suites add free bottled water), and HD televisions. Cribs are available in guest rooms but not suites, but suites have a separate living area with a sleeper couch. They each include hair dryers and bath amenities. Rooms can be booked connecting but suites cannot.
Onsite, visitors enjoy an outdoor pool, fitness center, bistro restaurant, and lobby lounge. Wired and wireless internet are available in all rooms and suites, but are only free for IHG Rewards Club members. When it’s time to head back to the airport, make sure to take advantage of the complimentary shuttle service. Another free shuttle makes other stops around the area.

Came off the flight to check in and (before 3pm is a 50$ fee if not a member, smh). Had lunch which consisted of nachos and a cheese burger.
Nachos was massive and pretty good for an appetizer. Cheese burger was nasty...greasy, much smaller than bun and not good at all. Took two bites and was done.
Mentioned it to server (who was good btw) and she apologized but still charged bill.
$30.00....$30 for nachos and cheeseburger that was not even eaten! For one person, can only imagine bill for two or more would be. Smh...
Won’t be eating here again.
Hotel and room are extra clean and neat. Bed was very comfortable. Staff was so friendly, welcoming, and professional! Only 10 minutes from airport. Newer shuttles and drivers very pleasant. Thank you for a great night sleep and fantastic food!
