A nice place and very close to UT campus for parents wanting to go and visit. Our room, (the library room), was small but there are bigger rooms and this is not unusual in an old structure converted to a B&B. Very comfortable bed, the complimentary glasses of wine when we arrived were a nice touch and the continental breakfast was quite good. On the whole an enjoyable and relaxing place.

We really enjoyed our stay at the pearl. It's very convenient in location. The house is lovely. The only thing I was disappointed in was the breakfast. It was a Continental breakfast which was ok but would have prefer more homemade choices of muffins and such. Other than that we loved our stay.
We appreciate you taking time to review The Pearl and are very happy you enjoyed your stay with us! We are sorry the complimentary breakfast did not meet your satisfaction. We do offer and serve a special hot breakfast in your room for an additional small fee and hope you will return and choose that breakfast option. However, we also offer in our breakfast room with our compliments.. an array of breakfast foods from hard boiled eggs, Greek yogurt, with a European flair of ham, cheese to a variety of fresh fruits, cereals including homemade granola, as well as an assortment of bakery goods, juices, sodas and ice water with lemon. Also, many guests love our fresh coffee and tea station. The Pearl has been thriving in downtown Austin for over the past 20 years and are happy to be able to still offer the good rates we do that include FREE parking, Wi-Fi and breakfast at no extra fee. We hope to see you here again in your future travels. Thank you again!

Our dapperbag photo shoot was a success thanks to "Austin Inn at Pearl Street. The owner visited with us while we were setting up for our shoot in and around the Inn. The staff was so accommodating and made us feel at home! The grounds and rooms were charming and perfect for our bags. The location of the Inn made it easy for us to get around town. We can't wait to visit the Inn again.

We were big fans - we stayed in the french room and it was beautiful. It's an old building - so be mindful that some things may be a tiny bit creaky or loose - but the service was outstanding, the decor was phenomenal, and everything worked perfectly (AC, water, etc.). The shower was really nice. The bed was super comfy. And the location was good, too! We loved it there.

My husband and I had a great stay at the Pearl Inn from the moment we arrived! From the lovely and charming decor to the beautiful peace courtyard we instantly fell in love with this bed and breakfast. We were given a quick tour and then had complimentary wine/beer served in our room! The owners and staff were all so friendly and helpful...especially in trying to give us directions to several places my husband wanted to go! They even looked up restaurants and made recommendations to several places since this was my husbands first time to get to see Austin. We had booked the Venetian room and were very happy and comfortable during our stay! The ambience is very relaxing and serene, only wished we had booked a few more days! My husband and I can't wait to return again. I had booked this online as a surprise for my husbands birthday and it was absolutely wonderful!!!

Very charming B & B. Wonderful customer service. Nice and Clean rooms and bathrooms. We stayed in the European Room and the bed was very comfortable, however, the TV did not work (even after being fixed), not that we were there to sit in the room and watch TV, but would be nice to catch the weather, etc. The breakfast is nothing to write home about but is the basic self serve cereal, bread, and pastry breakfast to get you moving.

We stayed for our anniversary and while the lady running it was super nice , and the room was cozy ... It was rather loud at night , and the room adjacent too us turned on a hall light twice ( after we turned it off ) and the doors had glass on top to where this light was shinning in .. Not only that but for the price , the food was a muffin and some fruit ~ Very saddened by it over all

We stayed in the French room and it was very nice. The toilet would continually run after every flush but wasnt really a big deal. The staff was very nice and helpful in navigating the city. It wasn't super close to good restaurants and shopping so we would drive everywhere but it was only a couple minutes drive. The only big negative I have is that it's on a busy street so the traffic was loud as night but all and all it was a good place to stay.
