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.

Found this by accident but some of life's best moments are happy accidents. Quaint, quiet, and clean. I'm staying in one of the small single bed rooms. It has a comfortable full-sized bed, a small flat screen TV, a shower, desk and chair. Each room is a one of a kind and reasonably priced. Walked over to Doc's for dinner... More

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.
