What a beautiful place! Austin’s Inn at Pearl Street is so wonderful and I absolutely fell in love with the decoration. We felt so at home. I appreciate all the love and dedication the owner, Ms. Bickford has invested into this piece of artwork. We stayed in the Gothic Suite and absolutely loved it! We enjoyed sitting out on our lovely private balcony, enjoying a nice glass of Texas wine, cheese and crackers that the Inn brought to us that Saturday evening. A staff member was so kind to call a few days before our reservation date to remind us of our booking and make sure we did not have any questions, which is so thoughtful! The Inn's staff was very helpful and efficient, when had questions about a few local restaurants they were wonderful at answering all of our questions. The Inn is so charming and comfortable. I wish we could have stayed longer! We know the next time we come to Austin, we will definitely be staying here. Thank you so much for opening your house to us. We really enjoyed our stay!

Welcome to the Inn on Pearl Street where the doors don't close and the windows are always open! I wanted to like this quirky Austin hotel, but there were just too many problems. We stayed in the Oxford room for 2 days and the old-fashioned atmosphere of the room was just old. The windows in the bathroom had been painted open, leaving a good quarter inch gap at the top - nice and drafty! The bed was 4 feet tall (huge!) and the only table was crooked so our stuff just rolled off. The furniture might be antique, but none of it has been restored or well-cared for, so it just looks like a garage sale in progress. There was a huge rug in the bathroom that caught on the bottom of the door almost preventing opening/closing. The breakfast was no better than the standard cereal and toast you get at any cut-rate hotel - no hot breakfast, no options, no one around to help serve. As if this wasn't enough, we had accidentally left a package of souvenirs at the Inn and called them to ask if they could mail it back to us. They called me back several hours later and explained that I would need to pay $25 for them to take the tiny package to the post office, and then I'd have to pay for any packing and shipping fees involved. Then they conveniently hung up on me. I can't understand why this hotel has deteriorated into such a shabby place. I'm all for keeping Austin weird, but you are better off going to a standard chain hotel for half the price.

I rarely write things up good or bad but this place left me with such a bad impression that I felt compelled. I stayed over labor day weekend with a group of people. I can see why some people might find this place "interesting" with the themed rooms and "unique" knick knacks. But sadly, there were far more negatives that outweigh the so-called 'charm of the place.' Management: Before we even got there, the innkeeper/owner put us through hoops for the reservations. She was not exactly welcoming and made it fairly clear that she just couldn't be bothered. While signs were put up everywhere to be considerate of other guests, management nevertheless decided it would be ok to run a very loud washer right outside the very thin doors of three of the rooms in small hallway of the upstairs of the Burton House BEFORE 8 am on Sunday morning. Location: Random. Near UT but nothing else much around there within walking distance except the taco cabana down the street. Bed: Both houses smelled musty. The odor in the Burton House, in particular, was awful. Something between a mix of stale cat urine and mildew. Some of the rooms in the Victorian House were fairly decent. The rooms in the Burton House were shoebox-sized. Some might call it mysterious, but overall the feeling/experience was just creepy. The walls are paper thing so be prepared for others being able to hear you or being able to hear others while they are using the facilities (oh yeah, this happened). Breakfast: Unless you call bad coffee and pre-packed danishes "breakfast," I would skip it.

My boyfriend and I had always been curious about this B&B, as we drive by it often and are always admiring the beautiful lights that are strung in the yard. We went to stay for a night when they offered us a very generous discount, and absolutely loved every part of our stay! Our room (the Gothic Suite) was in the yellow house, was beautifully furnished and extremely clean. The suite also included a second, equally lovely room with a comfortable twin bed as well as it's own porch overlooking the backyard. We spent a lot of time in the yard, and loved the hammock and all of the lights in the trees. The dining room had a wide variety of great things for breakfast (Nutella, cinnamon rolls, fruit, yogurt, etc) The owners were also incredibly accommodating. Checking in and out was a breeze. Everything about this bed and breakfast is comfortable and cozy; I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Austin for a few nights!

The Austin's Inn at Pearl St is the place for you! We stayed in the Far East room. The furnishings were beautiful and the experience relaxing. It is located near all the hot spots too. A true destination spot for tourists or those looking for a urban get-away.

Awesome place; great service; wonderful room; and charming grounds. Would have been 5 stars if the wireless & electric sockets worked
Response from the owner - a year ago
From “great service” to “charming grounds,” thank you we aim to please and are happy you enjoyed your stay with us! Our wireless service is available through U-Verse and like all hotels and places using wireless, at times, they tend to not be totally reliable, but sorry you were not able to connect. As for the plugs, we can only imagine that possibly something got unplugged to accommodate a phone charger and did not get plugged back in, this happens. We do strive to continue to keep up with the small maintenance issues and appreciate your patience and understanding the concept of our 100 year old “boutique hotel”. Overlooking the few flaws allows for the uniqueness and quaintness to shine through and we do our best to keep everything running smoothly. Thanks again, and we hope to welcome you back soon. -Austin’s Inn at Pearl Street
