Was there for Business and visiting friends and was very surprised by the excellent location, plus the accommodation facilities and great friendly staff. If in Austin and would like to be away from downtown and at the same time being able to walk there this is the perfect spot.

Stayed here before and loved it so back we came. Just as quirky, whimsical, and excellent as our previous visit. Kudos to Milly, the breakfast chef, for her delicious broccoli casserole and fantastic blueberry muffins,but also for her friendliness and help. Star of Texas is not five stars, it is the "Star" and lives up to its billing in unique... More

We stayed recently for a campus visit with our prospective student. It was so nice to leave the car parked in the lot at the B&B and not worry about finding parking on campus. We were able to walk every where we needed to go and we felt like we had a great introduction into campus life as there were... More

On first sight seems rather old and shabby but the rooms are really comfortable and bathrooms more than adequate (was in room 14 which has a bath and shower over). At first it also seems odd that you never see the owners etc except for someone briefly refilling the breakfast spread. TV very basic. But the wifi was super fast... More

Stayed for a week at the Start of Texas Inn while working in Austin, and loved it. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and cosy. A breakfast of bacon and eggs, fresh fruit, toast and cereal was perfect. Free lemonade, soft drinks or juice every day. Our hostess even offered me the use of a washing machine for my laundry. When I... More

This was a great place to stay for meetings I had at UT. The proprietors are very friendly and accommodating - they let me print my boarding pass, for example. The information about Austin they have in the rooms is very helpful, and it's easy to get to restaurants, etc by walking. Despite warnings it would be noisy outside, I... More

Star of Texas B&B was exactly what my husband and I were looking for in Austin. We were in Austin for an opening exhibit at the Harry Ransom Center on the campus of University of Texas and for the UT football game so we wanted to be close enough to walk to both events and not bother with parking. Star... More

The location of the house is really great. We had no desire to drive a car while we were in town. We had an easy trip in from the interstate and were able to park and walk to take the bus everywhere we wanted to go. The bus downtown was about three blocks away and so easy to use. The... More

Overall the house is quite run down. Ceiling leaks were visible. I was afraid the ceiling frame might end up falling. As to security, anyone can walk in from the street and make the inn their own home. There was no proper check in time. Keys were left in the door. Anyone could have duplicated the house keys. Housekeeping was... More

This is a once lovely 19th century home. The millwork and balconies are very nice. Overall, the house is a bit run down. The good points: the bed was very comfortable and we slept well. Last night, this place was very quiet. The not so good points: the shower is within a claw foot tub and is not user friendly.... More
