Old building, old furniture, but all clean. Rather great rooms; perfect shower, plenty of towels. Swimming pool is a plus. Parking in front of the room Good location: walks to the centre and near to clubs and restaurants. No breakfast available, only coffee and energy bar. Expensive bottle of water; expensive motel all so.

The Austin Motel, on South Congress, is a landmark itself. But it's comfortable, well located and the staff is great - everyone we encountered was terrific. We stayed there for two nights and they're so accommodating. It's just a few minutes walk to downtown and within a stone's throw of all of the shops, restaurants and watering holes on S.... More

Having stayed at the Austin Motel a number of times over the past decade, the recent change in ownership has left me rather dismayed, All the quirky sculptures and decorations that were a key feature of the motel, especially the old car used as a planter. have been sold and removed. Prices have shot up, Nearly $200 a night in... More

For anyone traveling on a budget like me, this place will be your go to when travelling to Austin. The rooms are kept very clean, and even though they are a bit small, they are very cute. I don't know how they managed, but it is quite a quiet hotel, especially considering the location. If you are expecting a boutique... More

Had a terrific weekend in Austin, thanks in main to staying at such a great motel - location, staff and facilities ticked the box. We did book one of their larger rooms which was very airy and spacious. Some of the other rooms looked a little small so would recommend requesting a larger room. We'll be back!

I stayed here two nights but wish I could of stayed longer. Austin motel is in an excellent location on South Congress. The Continental Club is practically a block away. There's dozens of restaurants and shops all within walking distance of the motel. There's even a bicycle rental across the street that can easily take you to the Congress bat... More

We stayed one night in this little Motel and loved it. It was clean and quite and located in the just the right place in Austin. Close to so many shops and restaurants as well as the capitol and 6th street. It truly makes you feel like you are in another decade.

My gf and I stopped at the Austin Motel for the night. Great little place to stay. My room was on the lower floor but up on a hill behind the main office. The hotel itself is old. Don't let that fool you though. It is in very good condition. Our room had actual hardwood floor's throughout. A nice comfy... More

Spent a single night here. It's an old Motel that parts have been there since 1933. Well maintained and clean. I've stayed in many new places that could learn a thing or two from the Austin. It's not the Four Seasons or the Ritz but it ain't the Motel 6 in Skansville either

The best thing about the Austin Motel is the location on the strip with great restaurants, stores and the Continental Club. It is a short walk to the riverfront and down town, As advertised, the decor keeps to the 30s, at least in room 133. Free parking is a plus, but we did not take advantage of the pool. On... More
