The historic Austin Motel sits just south of the Colorado River and Downtown, in view of the State Capitol and walking distance to the famous bat bridge. Part of the beloved South Congress neighborhood, the motel is surrounded by some of the city’s most interesting dining, nightlife and shopping, with easy access to bus lines and Austin’s lovely hike and bike trail that connects to Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool and the Barton Creek greenbelt.

41 guest rooms and suites, the best swimming pool in town, and a lobby shop on South Congress: Austin Motel is the place to chill deep in the heart.

Property Amenities

Who’s to say what our best features are? To some, it’s our proximity to The Continental Club. To others, it’s the kidney shaped pool and lido deck. There are many things to love about the Austin Motel, but our most valuable amenity is our amazing, longtime staff who are available around the clock to offer their insights and opinions on pretty much anything – need dinner reservations, a cab or suggestions about where to go two-stepping? Just ask. They love to help.
