Austin’s most iconic sign.

Austin Motel is actually one of Austin’s coolest hotels with fun but tasteful room interiors, a great restaurant, and one of the coolest pools in Austin. They throw a pretty mean pool party. It’s famous for the huge neon sign which has been an Austin icon since the motel opened in 1936. And yes they know what it looks like.

The restaurant, Joann’s Fine Foods is exceptionally cool as well. With an awesome 1950s diner feel that fits the vibe of Austin Motel perfectly. They serve up great food, (don’t miss the chicken fried steak) and stunning cocktails. Best of all, they serve reasonably priced beers.

Austin Motel is on South Congress which is just south of downtown and a really cool location in it’s own right with great shopping, restaurants, bars, and of course live music. This is a popular location with younger visitors to Austin. It’s great for couples, and groups of friends. The rooms are stylish, clean and have everything you need. It’s not luxury, and it’s not trying to be. But, this is way nicer than many 4 star hotels. it’s owned by Austin Hotel company Bunkhouse, who own most of the small cool hotels in Austin, and set very high standards. All of their hotels are exceptionally well run and really cool.
