This place was truly a great stay. The Motel, from what I understand has been there since the 1930s, but it is meticulously restored to its 1960s condition. Everything from the rooms to the grounds had a great swanky 1960 vibe to it which was unlike any other place my wife and I had stayed. The other reviews will mention the great location to shopping restaurants, entertainment etc. but what makes this place special is its very authentically put-together step back to the 1960s. Super cool, super out of the ordinary. The Austin Motel is now our first choice when staying in Austin. The stay was a refreshing break from corporate cookie cutter hotels no matter what the class. The staff was great and the rooms and grounds were meticulously clean and cared for.

My flight into Austin was very, very late and so I had only a few hours in my stay. But the staff was super friendly and efficient, and the room was funky in a fun and good way. Morning breakfast options within easy walking distances were plentiful.
