Like the other reviews said - this is a great value. We had the smallest room with a shower and double bed for only $65/night. The room was cute with hardwood floors and some kitschy decor that fit in with the spirit of the motel. Also, it is right on South Congress so you can walk to several great restaurants and shops. Jo's Coffee is right next door for the best coffee ever, along with breakfast tacos and yummy baked goods. If you don't mind walking, you can walk up Congress and get downtown and even to the University of Texas campus. The folks at the front desk were just great, very friendly and helpful. So for the budget conscious traveler, this is a great place to set up camp when visiting Austin.
But...if you like your amenities, then this may not be the place for you. It was ok on cleanliness, but not quite up to my general standards. The bed was so mushy that we rolled into the middle of it and everytime the other person moved, I'd wake up. The buttons on the TV were missing - apparently, someone was going around stealing the buttons for some strange reason. The shower wouldn't drain properly and had standing water in it; no clocks; threadbare towels; some small red ants; and bring your own toiletries because they essentially provide some soap and skimpy shampoo.
