The Austin Motel is a great looking classic American motel dating back to 1938, it's been restored (and then some) to it's former glory and is a great place to stay if you want to get a feel for the real Austin. There can be a little street noise at times so be prepared.
I stayed there with my wife and two sons in Sept 2005, it was my 5th visit to the city.
Austin's a great fun city and the this Motel fits well with the spirit of what the place is all about, quirky, rustic, and dare I say "funky"
It's not that cheap though and some of the staff are a little moody, though this might be part of the "cool Austin" attitude.
The rooms are nice, the ac works as does the ceiling fan, fridge tv etc, no kettle though and they don't get "English tea" very well there, though there is a great coffee place right next door on Congress Ave. The area has plenty of great food to try, mostly tex mex or plain mexican done the way it should be.
I would recommend the Austin Motel to anyone,
