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

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.
