If walkability and location are your main hotel-selection criteria, the Austin Motel is perfectly situated in a trendy South Austin neighborhood. Stayed for 3 nights on a business trip and would absolutely stay here again. This hotel is an easy, 1 mile (15 minute) walk to the downtown convention center, and is situated in SoCo near an endless number of restaurants, clubs, and shops just steps away. After checking out, I asked if I could keep my car in the hotel parking area while I went to lunch before leaving town, and the hotel staff happily accommodated my request.
*great SoCo location
*free parking (in an area that is difficult to find parking on the street)
*funky, eclectic vibe
*value for the location
*towels (paper thin)
*old-building outlet locations not conducive to charging phones/electronics near beds (expected that issue due to hotel age)
