This is a great little place for some fun on the Medina River. Place is clean and neat. Bathroom is large. AC works great and is in walking distance of the river as well as shopping and nightlife. Lots of Geocaches in the area if you are in to that. Beds could use an upgrade though!

Pulled up here with my mate whilst staying in Bandera for the night. There was a note on the door to say, call this number etc. Lucky my friend is American, otherwise it would of cost my phone a bomb to a call an American number. They said they will be down in a minute for us. We waited at...

We stayed here for a single night. It was the cheapest accomadation in town, but certainly the best too. Friendly landlady and nice people around. The bedlinen and towels were clean as were the room. You rent your own "cottage" and it even has a small kitchen. We sat at the porch outside in the night and enjoyed our home...

The cabin where nice and the staff was nice and helpful, but i think it's overpriced concidering the cabins. Anyhow we enjoy the stay, the possibility to go in town walking and the porch. The beds were fun but not really comfy, and the nights were very cold (extra blanket are provided)

To our guest that stayed at Riverfront Motel. We have heat or AC at our cabins, which are very nice cabins. We are not a 5Star Hotel in a large city we are small cabins across from the beautiful Medina river in a small rural town. Bandera, is a destination,....aka Cowboy Capital of the World...

Although we technically stayed at the Bunkhouse on Main, it is part of the River Front Motel's properties (just a couple blocks away from the rest of the cabins). I'm not sure what the main cabins are like, but the bunkhouse room was certainly the smallest and coldest hotel room I've ever stayed in. There was no central heat (just...

Reserved the Medina Suite, Bandera Suite and Hondo Suite weekend of October 12 and was OVERJOYED with the accomodations! Fully stocked kitchens, great firepit outside, very nice linens on beds, great towels! Felt like we were visiting family instead of renting from strangers. LOVED it and WILL be back!!!!

I can't imagine how reviewers are calling this place cozy. Cozy compared to the Overlook Hotel (from the Shining)? This place had a bad vibe from the minute we checked in. This is a hunting camp, not a motel. Mattress was missing the 70's and needs to go back. Extremely lumpy and uncomfortable. Blinds were warped and you could see...

In response to remarks on Trip Advisor: “We were expecting for 90 dollars...a week night reasonable, cozy and comfortable cabins”. River Front Motel is charming and cozy, nestled in the trees across from the beautiful Medina River and City Park. Each guest has their own individual cabin with a covered porch, where you can sit and observe the wildlife and...

Me and 3 friends stayed one night in 2 cabins. We arrived at 9 pm, so it was a short visit. But we were happy to see how spacious the cabins were and how clean they were. 2 deer were walking around the cabins, as we unloaded the car, very cozy! And we even saw an armadillo on the sidewalk,...
