For a first-time visitor, this motel was heaven. Fun, artful, very friendly helpful staff, perfect location! We stayed in two rooms: 262 and 117. Both were clean and comfortable. The place was booked for the NYE weekend, but the manager found us a great room to extend our stay. First come, first serve.
The motel is right next to Jo's coffee house, a favorite in Austin for great coffee and just hanging out. Amy's ice cream is across the street along with The Cosmopolitan Club for great blues. Many of the restaurants offer live music, so leave your car at the motel and walk down S. Congress Ave to enjoy Austin at its best.
