This was our first trip to Austin. I am so glad we stayed at the Austin Motel. Our room was so funky, the Original hardwood floors were slanted, the bathroom small but everything was clean and the bed was comfy, great water pressure too. The location is great, we loved the south congress vibe. there is a fabulous restaurant next... More

This is a great place to stay in Austin. On South Congress Avenue it is near all of the cool shops and restaurants. My room was perfect and had everything you needed at a reasonable price. And it's very easy to reach the downtown area by bus or even walking.

My partner and I stayed here on the first Thursday in August 2014. Location is wonderful: easily accessible and an easy walk into downtown Austin. Check in was a breeze, rooms are need and tidy. Perfect for an overnight stay. Hot shower and a clean and safe room is all you need at such an affordable price.

Having lived in Austin for years, I'd driven by this place and always wanted to stay there. I've since moved away and recently had my wedding in Austin. We reserved a block of rooms at the Austin Motel for the wedding party and out of town guests. I love Austin Motel - it was funky, no frills, but each room... More

when I lived Austin, I had passed in front of this mortel and was interested in here. I had have a chance to stay Austin after I was back Japan, so I booked here. Reservation is only email or phone at that time. Staffs were kind, room was lovely and nice. and this motel is near downtown Austin.

We found this such a relaxing place, considering as soon as you walk out you're in the middle of Soco, and lots of action. Our room was wonderful, and we slept like babies here. The pool was probably our favorite of all our trips, and the grounds are just so funky and cool.

We stayed here August 2014, The room was very different - clean and retro is probably the best way to describe it , with artex walls with huge mural and old 50's style furniture, the room was very basic, with no frills, hairdryers are available from reception , no facility for making drinks. The staff couldn't be more helpful and... More

Great little motel if you want something unique. Loved that the motel was within walking distance of so many shops and cafes. We even walked to a jazz club across the street one night and then stopped for ice cream! Very clean rooms! The pool is clean and very private even though it is on a major street. Our room... More

What's not to love? Cool, retro vibe hotel, super friendly service and a location that can't be beat. Oh, and did I mention you get all of that for a reasonable price? Austin Motel has it all. From the pool to cool off in, ample parking and comfortable rooms. If you're looking for a luxury spot, this might not be... More

I really loved this place. It was extremely reasonably priced and the location couldn't be better in all of Austin. I like that it is family owned. The double room was tiny but extremely comfortable and cutely decorated. The place has charm. We relaxed by the pool in the evening, which was lovely. The pool is open until 11pm. Parking... More
