My friends from the midwest were coming for a visit during classic car weekend and wanted a small boutique hotel, close to shops and fun. The Coach found Kimber online and I went to check it out. I fell in love.
They stayed all week, we had so much fun on the courtyard deck and loved every aspect of the motel. Vicki and her staff were gracious and welcoming.
Kimber Modern is close to all the action on South Congress and a short cab ride or biking adventure to South First Street (new Austin attraction! with wonderul La Patisserie, a french pastry shop) and downtown.
I highly recommend. If you are hesitating because there is no pool, just grab a cab and go to Barton Springs, located nearby or to Deep Eddy. Both are wonderful swimming holes!
