My husband and I spent one weekend in an upstairs cabin at The Other Place Resort. I love eating breakfast al fresco in the balcony where you feel like you can reach the tree branches, watch several curious squirrels running up and down the trees. And then, there's a doe and her two fawns on the grounds by the river.... More

We had one of the cabins that faced the river. It was great. Bed was comfy. Shower was a little tight, but great water pressure. Kitchenette was perfect. Area in the middle with sand volleyball, playground, grills, etc. Location close to main streets, and also Schlitterbahn and several river entrances. Would recommend, and stay again.

We went on a end of summer trip, kind of last minute, we were not sure what we were going to get...what a pleasant surprise! From the outside the cabins have a German town vibe...the insides were neat and clean and looked like they had been recently updated. Every room had a balcony that faced the river!! The grounds themselves... More

Love, love, love this place! Our first time to stay here based on the recommendation from a friend. Older facility, but no worries ... it's a great place to stay. Not sure if it's a family run business, but they sure made it seem that way & treated us that way. The location is perfect ... right on the Comal... More

I just returned from my annual trip to The Other Place in New Braunfels. It's perfectly located on the Comal River in town. Barry, Sarah, and the office ladies are fantastic, and welcoming every time I stay there. There's plenty of river access, or if you just want to sit by and visit with toobers floating by, I highly recommend... More

We were on the Comal River. You could literally hop on outside our door. We used Texas Tubes to shuttle back up to the top of the river. There are grills and a playground in the center of all the rooms. It is the best little place. Literally walking distance to Shlitterbahn. It's rustic, but great location and full kitchen.... More

This was a stay in low season so it was rather quiet. We really liked sitting on the porch looking at the Comal River. A few tubers floated by. The water was a little chilly getting in but rather nice once we took a plunge. It was clean and the management was cordial.
