Situated along the lively heart of South Congress’ famed strip of restaurants, clubs, and shops, Austin Motel is considered a beloved, quintessential part of the city’s authentic history. Operating as a motel since 1938, the property features 41 rooms, a bar, 50’s-style outdoor pool, and modern conveniences all set amidst classic mid-century roadside motel architecture that reflects the property’s long and unique history. Now operated by celebrated hospitality company Bunkhouse, the property’s newest chapter melds its uniquely Texas spirit, reflected in the original bones and iconic neon signage, with Bunkhouse’s authentic flare and distinctive design touch. At the center of the property lies the iconic kidney shaped pool and lounge area, sprinkled with reproduced mid-century chairs, tables and lounges set under classic red & white umbrellas. The hotel’s all-day restaurant, Joann’s Fine Foods, is inspired by California diners and the hearty Tex Mex fare of Austin.
