South Congress is a great part of Austin but finding a place to stay that is less than $200/night and in walking distance of the fun is a little difficult. This motel is legendary and every time I come to Austin, I try to stay here but it's always booked. I got lucky on this last trip! I stayed in the 2 story section and had a room on the top floor. The only complaint is that the walls are paper thin so people having a normal conversation in the rooms on either side of me could easily be heard...my floor boards were squeaking so pretty sure that was annoying to the person below me when I was walking around early in the AM. But honestly, it is a great price - just bring ear plugs and you'll be golden. My guess is that the one story section of rooms might be a little more quiet. The room was very clean, the people manning the front desk were fun and helpful and the wifi signal is so strong that you can even use it at Joe's Coffee Shop. Definitely will be back if I can manage a rez for the next trip to SoCo.
