When we were planning our road trip a couple of months ago and decided to stop in Austin I knew I wanted to stay at the Lone Star Court. It has a mid-century, rustic, Texan theme that I just had to see for myself.
Lone Star Court did not disappoint. As soon as we pulled we were greeted by a neon sign and a 1950s Roadmaster.
The lobby was warm and inviting, decked in leather and hides, with western memorabilia displayed on the mantle and shelves. A turntable played old school country records which felt very “Welcome to Texas”. This room seemed like a great place to hang out on such a dreary overcast day but I couldn’t wait to make it to my room.
The pathways are lined with orange rockers and aqua doors, one of my favorite retro color combinations everrrr. This sight made me so happy!
The suite we stayed in was the most perfect place to kick my feet up after a loonnnng day. The living room area had a comfy mid-century style couch and a television, which is all I really want in life. A sliding wood door separates the two rooms.There was also a little dining table surrounded by Eames style molded plastic chairs that was covered in fairly priced mini bar snacks. The good stuff even!
It also had a SMEG refrigerator with more snacks and drinks – from water to wine and spirits. There was an excellent selection in there, which I promptly took part in before our dinner at The Water Trough (the hotel’s on-site restaurant.)My favorite part about this room was probably the bathroom though. You’ll see why.This shower and claw foot tub saved my lifeeee! It was just the thing I needed after a 9 hour drive.Plus how pretty is it?! I love the penny tile floor and black and white color scheme.Clean, crisp, white sheets and a fluffy mattress! This bed felt like heaven! The grounds of the hotel have a few places to eat- The Water Trough, a bar and sit down spot, and The Feed Store, a food truck with quick bites. The grounds also have a ton of places to hang out around firepits and a pool.Lone Star Court is conveniently located next to a mall and lots of shops and restaurants, but when you’re in the court you kind of feel like you’re in their little world. One where you can relax in rocking chairs and drink a cocktail out of a mason jar while listening to the sounds of country western.If you want retro vibes with tons of modern conveniences, check out Lone Star Court during your next visit to Austin.
Thank you to Lone Star Court for a wonderful Stay!
