Down-to-Earth motel. When you're tired of ultra modern, ultra chrome, and the uber-perfect styles, try out the Austin Motel. Each room feels like a guest room in your favorite friend's house. The suites are more decked out, but still comfy. They are nestled in an absolutely PERFECT part of Austin, Texas. Stay here and you've got coffee and wi-fi in...

Stayed here for a girls weekend with some friend from Seattle. This hotel is walking distance to nightlife, shopping and great restaurants/bars. The room was clean and comfortable the one that I stayed in over looked the terrific pool. Would recommend this to my friends and anyone who wants to experience Austin.

Due to unusual moving circumstances, we found ourselves in need of a place to spend a couple of nights in our hometown. Decided on Austin Motel, as we are local business owners and wanted to do business with another local place instead of a corporate chain. We couldn't have been more pleased. The room was cozy and comfortable, like staying...

This hotel is a close enough drive to downtown Austin for the nightlife and action. It's just a walk to see the bats come out from under the Congress Street Bridge. Within walking distance are great bars and places to eat. I would recommend the Hobdobby! Upon our arrival we were greeted by a cheery lady welcoming us to Austin...

Excellent accommodation for the price. Room small but clean. Furnishings and decoration very quirky and individual. Amazing pool. Unbeatable location very near to great bars, clubs and restaurants. Staff friendly and helpful.

I can't say enough good things about the Austin Motel - we simply loved it. Our Greek-themed room was beautiful and comfortable, the staff were great and the location is unbeatable. Situated right in the heart of the SoCo strip, the motel is spitting distance from dozens of fabulous restaurants (don't spit on them though, please) and a very easy...

My wife and I stayed at the Austin Motel for 1 night in June 2013. We arrived in Austin very early (10am) and I immediately called the hotel to see if we could check in early so we could use the pool. They said that regular check in time was 3pm, but to stop by around noon and they could...

This motel doesn't need another glowing review but here goes... A decent price, a great location, funky decor with lots of individuality. Bonus: I had a chance to do some laundry. A short walk across the street to the amazing Continental Club, and you're right on the main SoCo strip without paying exorbitant prices. I dislike tacky touristy stuff but...

This 1930s era motor hotel on South Congress is in the heart of the happening SoCo area, surrounded by chic and quirky boutiques, restaurants of all kinds, and clubs. It is convenient for almost all Austin activities -- central but not in the jammed-up downtown traffic that starts just across the lake to the north. The place is simple to...
