Austin Motel

1220 S. Congress, 512/441-1157
Local legend has it this was the location of choice for illicit affairs involving the members of the Legislature during days of yore. Now it's the home of the cool pool, so close to downtown, yet so far out. Recent renovations have brought Nineties Jacuzzis and saltillo tile to this stronghold of roadside sensibility.
