This boutique hotel is a modernized revamp of a retro motor court motel—its live music, bonfire parties, and dipping pool reminiscent of a classic Texas swimming hole have made it a destination for the young and hip. This is the place to stay for quirky Americana touches without skimping on quality, cleanliness, or luxe amenities (including a supply of bath-and-body products made in California by modern apothecary, Lather). Located in North Austin, the vibe here is definitely social—all the outdoors activities make great opportunities to meet fellow travelers (and locals), have a drink, and hang out. The on-site food truck court, in true Austin fashion, is a big bonus.
