Retro motel in a very good area in Austin to stay.
We were here when the Austin City Limits Festival was on so it was very busy and the staff were always very available. Brett at the pool bar was especially helpful and very knowledgable as well. Our room was at the back so reasonably quiet my only comment would be the air conditioner is very noisy when trying to sleep. We did get used to it after a couple of days and it wasn't bad enough that I'd complain.

Loved the vibe but overpriced for the value
This hotel has a great funky vibe and an awesome location on South Congress. The front desk touted it as “old school” (which means retro/not updated in any way), so it was interesting to use an actual key in the door. There was no microwave or in-room coffee, which would have been nice. I more or less accidentally booked it on a 3rd party site not realizing how expensive the remaining days would be, so I did have to check out after the first night, but had I been able to afford it, I would have hung out.
