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...

This is not a "historical" site like the Driskel Hotel or the Stephen F Austin ( I think its still around), but is is historical if a 1930's tourist court can be. This inn is located in the heart of SoCo, one of the weirder parts of Austin, and the decore reflects the weirdness with antique furniture, SW tile floors...

The Austin Motel is in a great location on south Congress. You can walk to tons of places to shop, eat, or just hang out. You can also walk to downtown (about 10-15min), the bus to the airport, and a great running trail along a lake. For a great price, you will get a clean room and a nice pool...

South Congress is a great part of Austin but finding a place to stay that is less than $200/night and in walking distance of the fun is a little difficult. This motel is legendary and every time I come to Austin, I try to stay here but it's always booked. I got lucky on this last trip! I stayed in...

My fiancé and I traveled to Austin for a long weekend. Came here to visit friends. We could have spent the entire time just taking walking trips from the Austin Motel. It has it all, food, entertainment, interesting shops, beer, etc. It is also located a five minute drive from downtown or a five minute jog to some great trail...

My husband and I decided to stay on South Congress for the weekend even though we live in Austin. Loved it. Very quiet at night...no partying is posted on the door and they mean it. Another great thing. My husband has Athsma and the rooms are divided between prt and non pet rooms. Ours was non pet and had hardwood...

Stayed for a week here and loved it! Several friends had other rooms in the motel with various cool themes. Nice pool area. Incredible location near Continental Club and other cool bars and restaurants on Second St.

It's not the Ritz...nor do you want it to be. Themed rooms reminiscent of the 60's. Clean sheets, great towels...tiny showers, and a loveable cat in the lobby sets the tone. Prices are EXTREMELY reasonable and the location is in the middle of all the SoCo action. It just does not get any better than this for value, staff, and...

My friend booked this stay for a girls weekend before Christmas. Based on the pictures on the web I was skeptical. However, upon checking in I was enamored by the charm and kitsch of the place. The room was clean. The bathroom was functional but nothing more. The rooms had small refrigerators which were useful for storing wine and snacks....

Our room was clean and very comfortable. Not a fancy place, but a good place to rest and wash up. Stayed on upper floor in back - away from traffic was nice. The two front desk people we came into contact with were rude. Not a smile, not a please, not a thank you-just smart alec putdowns. Did not like...
