I'm looking for a family friendly and safe place to stay for 9 nights. I currently have a reservation at this Sonesta ES, however, I heard there was a shooting there? Did someone die? Was it nearby or on the suites' property? This concerns me, especially because I've got 3 children traveling with me. I may have to check on other properties. Bummer, because I was really looking forward to staying at this place.
From what I see on the news, that was over on Jet Wing Drive which is about 15 minutes drive south of Austin Bluffs and Academy, where Sonesta sits.
I was there for 28 days between March and April and I had a great time. The rooms are comfy, the appliances work, and there's lots of space. We had 6 suitcases so the amount of space was great.
I would recommend staying there. If you're on a tighter budget, or prefer to be a bit more to the north, there's a bunch of similar places around Woodmen road and a few on North Academy.
It was a random shooting, someone chasing another car. Very safe neighborhood for families. A rare unusual event.
