Fodor's Review

What used to be a fading 1938 motor court is now a beloved, quintessentially-Austin motel. Sitting pretty in the heart of South Congress’ famed stretch of trendy restaurants, clubs, and shops, this crash pad is a favorite with trendsters and artsy folk, who hang by the classic, kidney-shaped pool. Funky, throwback rooms are all unique, ranging from sedate to outrageous, from a diminutive all-white room to a '70s-style flamingo room, decked out with shag pillows and multicolored leatherette chairs. The staff, made up of laidback locals, aims to please.
