  • Do you have parking?

    We have our own parking lots, one at each house. There is adequate parking for one car per room.

  • What is your cancellation policy?

    Usually we require 72 hours notice. If you are staying with a large group or are coming at a very busy time of the year (a la South by Southwest Music Festival), we may require up to a month notice, a deposit and a contract. Be sure to read the confirmation email upon receipt. Be sure to read the cancellation policy that comes with your confirmation email. Details vary, so I can't post them all here.

  • What are check in and check out times?

    Check in time is at 3 PM. Check out happens at 12 noon. We can be somewhat flexible with both times; give us a call or email.

  • Do you have air conditioning?

    Yes, both places have central air and heat. Some rooms at the Star of Texas Inn have their own units.

  • Where in Austin are you?

    We are located 2 blocks west of the University. We are also about 16 blocks from the fun part of downtown. That's about a $7 cab ride, or a 40 minute walk. There are numerous bus routes to and from downtown and some are free. Google map.

  • How far are you from the airport?

    We are about 20 minutes from the airport. The cab ride will cost about $25. You can also arrange with Super Shuttle. The Super Shuttle charges $24 for the round trip.

  • Do you accept children or pets?

    We no longer accept pets at all, at either property. Children over the age of 5 are welcome.

  • What is there around you to do?

    There are more than 120 restaurants downtown. There are many places to eat within a 6 block radius from here:

    • The Clay Pit has great curry.

    • Mars Restaurant has a lot of southeast asian cuisine.

    • There are numerous pizza places, burger joints, wing shops, etc. We are right next to the University, after all!

    • The Dog and Duck is a cool place to play darts or pool. The beer selection is good, and they have a patio.

    There are several great hangouts nearby:

    There's a lot of other stuff in walking distance:
