I have stayed at the Austin Motel several times, each in different rooms. It is more personal than a chain and has much more history and character. Some rooms are nicer than others. Some could use updating. All were clean and liveable. They rooms are not cheap, but all places on South Congress have gotten pricy. The location is the... More

I just spent 5 days with my husband and son at the Austin Motel. I had read the reviews so I knew it would not be a 5 star hotel. It was clean and the staff was helpful. Each room seemed to have a different decor and some more up to date than others. We stayed in the back building... More

Great location to walk or cab all over South Austin. The room was clean and nicely decorated. Staff was friendly but didn't go out of the way to be helpful or make recommendations about things to do. One complaint...the bed and bath linens were a bit old and overused.

I almost hesitate to review this place, because if they book up solid every time I want to go there, I'll be mad! I just love locally owned businesses, & this one is a gem. The room was clean, bed was soft, & most importantly, the AC worked great. We didn't have to get in our car to eat, shop,... More

We absolutely LOVED our stay in the Austin Motel. The location was perfect for strolling on South Congress, walking to the park, walking to the bridge to watch the bats and also walking into the main downtown area. As you can tell we didn't have a car so walking distance was a huge bonus for us. I agree the bathroom... More

Austin Motel is in a great location, right on Congress close to lots of shopping and restaurants and just outside downtown. Staying here is really different. The room size was ok but the bathroom is really too small. This is more like staying at a friend's mom's house than a hotel or motel. We booked two rooms and one was... More

On South Congress, close to shopping, restaurants and nightlife. No breakfast included, but a great coffee bar (Jo's) right next door. Locally owned and operated, with a nice homey touch. Not the most modern facility, but clean and tidy, and each room has individual touches. We really like the pool and the artistic outdoor decor. Book early -- we were... More

Visiting from Alaska and came into Austin for a night of music. Had seen this motel a few days before And thought we'd give it a try. Read the reviews, made our reservation! We were Not sorry! For the people that are expecting Ritz Carlton fluffy towels, this is not the place for you. For all of you expecting a... More

We stayed for two nights at the Austin Motel. The pool was great but cold. The room was basic but that's what you are paying for. The room was clean, bathroom small, and the floor sloped... a lot. But it adds character to the place. The motel was conveniently located on the South Congress strip - so lots of choices... More

I have stayed at Ausin Motel several time and it is always good to be back. This hotel has a perfect location right across the street from Continental club. The rooms are quite small, but clean and with a comfortable bed. Our room was renovated and in good condition. The staff is friendly and helpful. Thevpool area is nice and... More
