We stayed from 4/11 thru 4/16. We researched the place but it was better than we expected. One of a kind place in the best possible location for what we wanted. All staff were great, especially Drew at the front desk who went out of his way to make us feel welcome. (Enjoy your VT maple syrup!) Located on South... More

Easy to drive to, easy to walk anywhere from, rent a bike, have a good, strong cup of coffee in the morning...Yes the rooms are spartan, dated/retro, and ... Not plush, but who cares?! We loved it. Clean, a good bed, tv, wifi, that coffee in the lobby, semi-feral cats loitering about. Plus, you are smack in the middle of... More

Definitely a dated/retro feel, but that's the look they are going for, and surprisingly it doesn't look run down. Stayed in a king room, everything was very clean. A little nosier on the bottom floor but other than that no complaints. I can't remember the last time I stayed somewhere you could park your car right out front, but it... More

From the time I checked their website to the time I called to make a reservation to my 3 night stay, my experience with the Austin Motel has been really great. It's really conveniently located - with across the street from the Continental Club with loads of great restaurants around. The rooms were spacious, clean and a little funky -... More

If the object of going to Austin is to enjoy the city's unique. music and nightlife scene, this place is the perfect match. Across the street from the Continental Club and other venues are nearby in Soco. A short trip to 6th Street and Warehouse districts. The staff couldn'nt be more friendly. The buildings show their age with some quirks... More

We got what we expected with the Austin Motel. A clean little crashing pad in an excellent downtown Austin location. The decor of the room was certainly dated, and we expected that and had fun with it. I'd definitely go back, especially in warm weather, as the pool area looks really fun. The rooms are simple (no refrigerator- no mini... More

The Austin Motel has been around forever. It's your typical drive up to your door place. The room was okay. A bit dark. King size bed. A shower with "green" toiletries. Clean. A safe for your belongings. The price was certainly right -- I find Austin's hotel prices to be shocking but this was about $120 or so a night.... More

great service and great location in this Funky landmark hotel - The Continental Club is just across the road - restaurant, pubs and shops nearby and a market on Saturday - rooms a wee bit tired but great value for money and the choice of rooms is funky :):)

There is nothing luxorious with Austin hotel. But you get a clean room with everything you need for a good nights sleep, but nothing else. The pool area is pretty lsrge and in good condition. The staff is very helpful and positive. Very close you find Continental Club and many good restaurants.

If you need 600 sq ft in your room, look elsewhere. However if you want a clean place with sub $100 rooms and a fantastic So. Co. location, this is it. Not the Taj Mahal , but who cares. You can walk to dozens of places. It is quiet and the bed comfortable. No closet or dresser for your stuff,... More
