Best of Austin 2001
Best Motel: Austin Motel
(Readers Poll, Architecture & Lodging)
"So close yet so far out" are not just words on a marquee for this 1938 landmark. Restored in the mid-Nineties by the tireless Dottye Dean, it has become a destination for everyone from touring musicians to anyone just looking for an alternative to generic freeway lodging. Each room is decorated with its own unique finds, and many regulars have their own favorites. Affordably priced, with a great pool looking out on South Congress, the Austin Motel adds real character to your home away from home.
1220 S. Congress, 441-1157
