I stayed in motels like this 20 years ago. Cost was high compared to what you got. No breakfast, no TV listing; however, the coffee maker was great. I didn't feel as safe in this facility as I do in more modern facilities. Would not recommend it for a single woman.

Close to the Hwy seems to be loud.... but we found a family owned nice motel with big and clean rooms and really a great and very kind serviceteam. Short distance to downtown, hwy 290 and 35. Gasstation is 90yards away, vending machines are in the motel. Free wifi.... all together a good choice

surprisingly clean. The outside looks a little run down. The rooms all have been remodeled and are very clean. The beds are very comfortable. I would stay her again. Don't forget there is no more uber or lift in town. You will need to down load the app. Fare

Heart of Texas motel is a very simple property. I experienced both older and fully remodelled room. The old rooms are very basic. Clean enough (I've stayed in much worse). The property is not in the best condition, however, I didn't feel uncomfortable. Because my first room was farther away from the reception area, I did not have stable internet,...

Very basic and old furniture and facilities for very high price - $85 with tax. I asked why - "Friday evening!" was answer. There were only 5-6 cars on the parking. What is reason to raise price without clients ?!

We stayed the there on the night of October 10, 2014 and were supposed to stay until the 14th. We pulled up and were a bit nervous. Very run down. We checked in, the owner seemed nice enough. So we were hoping for a good nights rest because we were running a charity event the following day. We stayed on...

Not the Ritz but it served our purpose...a place to sleep and clean up. Yes, it's "dated" but that's not a bad thing...place was clean, we had no issues and we were pleased with the stay. Take it for what it is...a place to sleep and get cleaned up...at this, it's an average motel and worth future consideration

We stayed here for two nights during our trip to Austin for the "Tough Mudder" and it is what you would expect from a low-budget motel. We didn't notice any roaches/bugs but the entire place looks very tired and run down. The towels had stains and the vanity counter top had a huge crack down the middle of it. The...

We actually stayed for two weeks and if all you want is a place to sleep at low cost this place will do. At least when we stayed it was okay. Quiet but run down and needed a remodel. The room was clean but dated, the internet worked as did the fridge and microwave. It was a typical low rent...
