We had never been to Austin before and did not know what to expect when we booked at the Austin Motel. Location and price were the deciding factors. The Motel is a good old fashioned Motel. Our room had been updated in the not too distant past -- bathroom had newer tile etc. Our room was dubbed the Great Wall... More

We stayed for three nights, along with others attending a wedding. If you're looking for a Marriott Courtyard or the like, this is not your place. However, if you want a change of pace and want to be convenient to the downtown and South Congress Street action, this is your place. Great shops and restaurants all within blocks. Check out...

Nice folks, a great location. It was an easy walk to Palmer Auditorium, Congress Ave. (bat) bridge, Town Lake, night clubs and restaurants. Like a block away from the Continental Club. The grounds were well tended. The pool appeared attractive, but I didn't use it. The room had glazed tile flooring, a tube TV situated in a very difficult to... More

I was not the research person on this stay which is a good thing, no pressure. If you are looking for a "Motel" this is just that. Thank goodness they still exist! Personality and intimate in a neighborhood which meets the same description. I stayed in a Suite since we were 3 people. Once I checked in the room it... More

I really like this motel. my boyfriend and i try to stay in family owned independent motels/hotel and this is just what we were looking for in Austin. It was really cozy and the owners were helpful in giving us suggestions of places to go for dinner/drinks. Austin Motel is also walking distance to 6th street and many other bars... More

Rooms are funky, all different, not like a chain motel. People friendly, location perfect for old Austin We loved it. Need to ask for blow dryer, iron. Don't stay here if usual chain amenities are what you need.

Austin motel is a throwback to a simpler time. Each room has a unique character, and location is outstanding and prices are some of the best in downtown Austin, We went with friends ( visiting all the great bbq spots) , one of the couples found their room was not to their standards and moved to a different motel. The... More

Great place to start a trip of Austin discovery. It is not a cheap motel but a class act with great prices. Likely the best price you can find very close to downtown Austin where you find 6th St. I stayed here new to town waiting for my apartment to be ready and was very glad it all worked out... More

Stayed for 6 nights at the Austin Motel and it was very good. Nice to have the entrance to the room right off the parking lot. Lots of stuff going on around there as well. Funky shops and good restaurants. Doc's Motorcycle Works is across the street and has great food and so does the South Congress Cafe up the... More

Stayed in 143. Room on back side of motel (quieter). Spacious. Warm tile floor. Solid place, nice front desk people. If you want to ride/walk around SoCo, this is one of your best spots. The bed was comfortable and pretty large. Nice hot shower.
