This place is so sweet. Breakfast was lovely. The people where very friendly and helpful. Next time we gonna stay there again. The privacy was good. The lill things in the room made it special. Thank you so much.

We enjoyed the Star of Texas. The room, though not large (though the bathroom was) was very well appointed, the breakfasts were good and the location near the University was great - an easy walk from the Capitol and well served by buses to get further downtown. The service was quite impersonal for a B&B, though this was probably largely... More

The second time isn't always as good as the first, but in the case of The Star of Texas Inn it honestly was! The amazing staff accommodated my last minute request for a room one day shy of the recommended booking. I was initially placed in a large room and was kindly asked if I would be willing to change...

We had booked a room thru AirBnB and when we arrived there, it was hideous (I won't go into the details, but after 10 minutes, my wife said "I can't stay here"). Fortunately, I had remembered looking at the web site for Star of Texas - I called them and they had a lovely room for our two nights, just... More

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
