About Events with Austin Motel
The Austin Motel opened its doors in 1938, and its landmark neon sign has been brightening South Congress Avenue ever since. The redesign was inspired by a few decades that stood out as important moments in the motel’s history: the 1930s, when it was built; the 1950s, when it was in its heyday, and the 1980s, when Austin was sort of at the end of its “cosmic cowboy” era, right before the city started changing.Operating under the mantra “So Close. Yet So Far Out,” his recently remodeled 41-room motel, with classic motor court exterior, is centrally located in the heart of Austin’s most interesting cultural district and is close to downtown. The 24-hour reception desk and retail store caters to guest needs and offers snacks, drinks and interesting mementos.The Austin Motel is the perfect spot for hosting your next birthday party, social event, or non-traditional corporate event. We don’t have a conference room, but we do have the best pool deck in town, a large outdoor courtyard and several other options for interesting event settings that reflect the real spirit of our city.
