Great location, lots of charm and very friendly staff
The moment they realized that we are traveling with a baby we got upgraded. Everybody was very friendly and helpful - perfect place to stay for a couple of nights!
You do hear street noises but that‘s the trade off for being in the city center!
I love the retro experience at the Austin Motel. For an 80-year old motel, they have done a nice job with updates, while maintaining the feel of the era. You can’t beat the location. Everything is walkable. We love the outdoor pool (although the weather was so cold we didn’t take advantage as we had in past Octobers). The service is great and Joann’s, the restaurant next door, is excellent. We have stayed here almost every visit to Austin and love the experience.
The cost has skyrocketed since my first visit in 2003, when it was still a pretty quiet neighborhood. We returned in 2010 and have returned every other year since. Once it changed hands, the price increased exponentially, especially for ACL weekend. I truly love the place, but it is still an older hotel with few amenities for $450 a night—-not sure I’ll do that again.
With a stay at Austin Motel, you'll be centrally located in Austin, steps from South Congress Avenue and within a 5-minute drive of Lady Bird Lake. Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. Free self parking is available onsite.
