There are several on or just off of S. Congress, mostly boutique hotels. The exception is the South Congress Hotel, a full-service hotel right in the middle of the S.Congress activity. Boutique hotels include the Austin Motel, a 50s style motel that has been renovated; the Hotel San Jose; a motel renovated to a modern rock style; Kimber Modern, about 1 block off of S.Congress; and Hotel St.Cecelia, about 2 blocks off of S.Congress.
There are a few B&Bs and any number of short-term rentals, often homes, that are closer than the downtown hotels.
Other places listed in earlier responses are NOT on S.Congress - Driskill, Embassy Suites, Staybridge, Wood Spring and Omni.

Every Wed-Sunday there is free live music at Guero's on S Congress. Every Sunday there is free music at Jo's Coffee shop, just down the street from Gueros. At various times of the year, you can find free music at auditorium shores. If you google "free music in Austin" you can find all kinds of cool, free, fun stuff in Austin.
