Austin Motel’s delightfully suggestive sign may serve as the unofficial gateway to South Congress, but it has so much more to offer visitors. An institution since 1938, it showcases the perfect mix of historic charm and local quirk, making it the go-to place for visitors who want an authentic taste of the city. Glimpses of classic Austin are fading fast, but Austin Motel – which rightly calls itself “modernized but not commercialized” – remains true to its roots.
