Overpriced Let Down
You’re probably asking yourself “Does this live up to the photos?” Answer: No. I was excited about staying here because it looks so cool, but I knew in the back of my head it wouldn’t live up to expectations. The check in desk and restaurant are very cute and nicely redone. The rooms are not gut renovated, feels more like a DIY patch job. The novelty wears off as soon as you pull into the back parking lot. The room has a key lock and doesn’t feel super secure. It also had a little bit of a moldy smell, the bed was uncomfortable, I could hear every word of the neighboring rooms conversations, there was no heat, and the shower didn’t drain (even after alerting staff). What you are really paying for is access to the S Congress area as there are not a ton of hotels around. If you’re on the fence about staying here I’d look elsewhere.

Relaxing stay
Wish we had brought our swim suits, that's what would have made our stay better. Everything else was great. We enjoyed the lobby coffee then breakfast at the cafe. Room was comfortable and fun with lipstick wallpaper.

Always pleased with our stay!
This is our 2nd stay at Austin Motel and they do not disappoint. (We would have more stays under our belt but depending on time of year, if you don’t book ahead then you’re out of luck. They sell out quick for a reason) Yes, it’s an older property that is motel style but don’t let that fool you into thinking it cheap or cheesy, to me the style is one of the appeals. Each room we stayed in and others we were traveling with, each had rooms that had their own decor and personality. Front desk is also very kind and eager to answer even a few silly questions we had. Loved the pool when we stayed this past summer too. Location is a plus, it happens to be located on Congress and is walking distance to some of the best shopping, definitely some of the best food and food trucks and if you’re a night person there are some really good bars located all within walking distance. So personally I love Austin motel and if it’s available for when I come in town, then I will choose it over other chain hotels in the area. Keep Rockin’ Austin Motel! 🤘

Reservation fail!
They totally messed up our reservation! And my 21 year old son ended up sleeping on the couch.
