This place is great. I only wish the weather had been nicer during our stay. It was cold and windy. However our room had a good heater, including heated tile in the tub area of the bathroom, a nice appreciated feature. The location is superb for exploring the funky neighborhood. I'll stay here again, on my next visit to Austin.

As soon as I get here my mood turns into great mode. It is not very fancy but the feeling is right. Grab a sixpack on the way here, fill the sink with ice as soon as you arrive, get the code for the poolarea and enjoy.

We stayed here for three nights last week, and we loved the hotel and the location. The rooms are all decorated differently and have all the standard features, but the true worth of this hotel is both the location and the price. It is located right in the SoCo shopping area, with lots of restaurants, clubs, and shops all within... More

We found this motel online and booked a Valentine get away. We chose it after reading the Southern Living Article and looking at the cool pictures. It is exactly that, a cool old style motel. We happen to love vintage retro style and appreciate renovated spaces plus the location was great! The staff seemed friendly, very helpful upon arrival however... More

For those of us on a budget; and/or dealing with our Canadian dollars being at such a low exchange rate (29% less than U.S. dollar!) the Austin Motel was almost perfect for me. I traveled as a single female senior; although I can easily pass for my late 50's. The bed was VERY comfortable; the rooms are appealing with the... More

I've stayed at the Austin Motel several times over the past 5 years and have always had a good experience. The location is wonderful -- it's in an area of South Congress that reminds me of Greenwich Village with popular restaurants and shops .. and it's a 20 minute walk from central Austin (the Capitol) or you can take a...

This was my first time in Austin and I was very hesitant about where to stay to be close to all the landmarks. Apparently I made a right decision. If you don't expect from motel to be a 5 star hotel then you will not be disappointed. The motel is very clean and has everything you need, but the keywords... More

The location of this motel is brilliant. It's on the doorstep of the best part of town if you want to experience Austin. Great restaurants, food trucks, coffee and shopping.book a suite for more room and parking at your door.

Stayed at the Austin Hotel several times while in Austin for business. Stayed in the small single rooms due to short trips. The rooms are simple, but clean. The location is excellent - with the S. Congress area right out the door. Plenty of great hip restaurants and bars to enjoy following a work day.

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
