The old timers at the Maya Meetings stay
at the Rodeway Inn, within walking distance
from the UT Austin campus. My darlin'
companion and I came to the party late, so
we've never managed to snag a room at the
Rodeway -- they're usually all booked up.

I found the Austin Motel online when I was
looking for an alternate place to crash during
the meetings, and I immediately fell in love
with the way the website design appropriated
this crazy phallic neon sign as an ever present
icon that was repeated many times over in
the global navigation (although I think they
may have redesigned the site not too long ago
-- but I'm posting by Sidekick and I'm too lazy
to check). It's a perfect example of design
so bad that it's good.

The motel continues the bad design theme --
a 1930s motor inn, it's been redone in true Austin-style
with full size photographic wall friezes
and funky random themes in which pictorial
representations of tropical plants figure

It's also cheap. Half the price of the Rodeway.
Which pretty much seals the deal.

So it became our hovel of choice when we were
in Austin -- or mine, at least. My sweetie found
my taste for this kind of funkiness questionable
at best, but the rate sold him too, so he pretty
much let me do what I wanted to do. (Smart man.)

Only it seems we weren't the only ones to
fall for the Austin Motel: the last couple of
times I've tried for a room around this time of
year it's been booked up solid with
SXSWesterners, and this last time they
referred us to the Hotel San Jose right
across the alleyway.

The Hotel San Jose is another mid-century
modern do-over -- each room is its own little
bungalow, appointed in a way that would make
Dwell Magazine terribly proud. The website
advertises that each room has its own Eames
chair (no foolin') and the door handles look a
whole lot like the ones Wittgenstein designed
for his sister's place.

My sweetie's complaining that the hemp soap
smells like dirt, and the lime green flip-flops
placed for my convenience in the bathroom could
be mine if I didn't mind shilling out 20 bucks for

I suspect this place is a whole lot hipper than I
know how to be. And it costs just about as much
as the Rodeway. So we're back to square one.

But the robes are awfully comfy, anyway.

our dirt cheap motel in athens right near the bars, cafes and shops that Athens is full of. Athens was a welcome surprise from Bangkok. It was much more mellow and calm. Traffic seemed bearable, (ie. I'd give it a whirl if it weren't such a pedestrian friendly city). Apparently Athens is plagued by smog but the weather was great when we were there so it kept the air cleaner than it normally is there.
