Detailed Reviews
Samuel A wrote a review Feb 2023
3.0 of 5 bubbles
I stayed at this hotel because of the glaring reviews. It was mid-priced. And being a franchise of a known chain, I thought this must be a great place to stay. I was wrong. I knew from the photos that this was a very old building, but the photos also made it seem that they have done a good job remodeling. They have not. After I checked in, I regretted everything. I wonder who wrote all the positive 10/10 reviews. Remodeling was cheaply done where old parts were poorly blended with the new. There is rust and stains everywhere (carper, upholstery, towels, sheets). Bathtub was poorly installed and of extremely low quality. It felt as if I am walking on a flimsy piece of plastic with no support. The breakfast was sad. Very few options, perhaps to save wherever possible. Rusty toaster and moist beagle. Dark parking lot with a posted sign that the establishment is not responsible for break ins. The whole thing was just a mess. This probably should have been independently run as a local one-star motel at half price.

The hotel is located very conveinetly to Schlitterbahn & the river. Rooms were clean. NO hot water in shower but scalding hot water in faucet. Pool area was clean but quite dated. The room had a mildew-smell that would not go away. Guests staying above our room was increadibly loud until about 2am. Sounded like they were playing tag running around up there.

Property was very nice. room was very cold... The way my family likes it. Food is very close by as we were wiped out from a day on the water. We will defiantly be staying here again when we visit the river of Schlitterbahn water park since it was only a 7 min drive to the main gates.

I know I was getting one of the cheapest hotels in the area, but I guess I expected a little more. The lobby “welcomed” me with puddles of a spilt drink all over the floor, discolored chairs, and very warm temperatures. The check in process was simple enough and they were able to get me into room on the first level as requested. The room itself was pretty poor, specifically the bathroom. Most metal fixtures in the bathroom were rusted and there was a hole from pipe repair in the ceiling above the shower. Due to this hole, we asked for a different room but “none were available”. We asked for tape to at least cover the hole ourself but they never got us any. We ended up sticking a bag in the hole to just ensure privacy. It was a small hole surrounded by a damaged ceiling, but still, you never know. The shower floor was very worn and uninviting. We also had light bulbs missing from one of the bedside lamps. It’s not super quiet due to being near a busy highway, but I think that’s common to most places in the area.

The only plus side was that the bed was comfortable and it was the cheapest option. I also liked having a fridge and microwave in the room. I wouldn’t say don’t ever come here.. but if you do, don’t expect much.

The Howard Johnson by Wyndham New Braunfels provided a pleasant and memorable experience for me. From the accommodating staff and impeccable housekeeping, to the complimentary parking, my stay was both safe and secure knowing that there was always someone at the 24/7 front desk. I'm glad to have chosen such a reputable establishment for my lodging needs.

They lied about having a pet friendly "tude" and that me and my 4 legged friend would enjoy it here. Nope. The room was nothing special and the outside was not very pleasant. It looked like the neighborhood is not in a good place. Staff was trying to charge me half price of room for my dog. I declined but they still wanted their money even though I arrived at 3 pm. They had plenty of time to rebook it.

The first room electrical hazard air conditioner was leaking into outlet and carpet was soaked moved rooms. The room had a broken bed, broken toilet, shower would not drain and rusty nails sticking out of carpet. And a dirty tissue in the bed. I wish I could upload video of outlet sparking and soaked carpet , broken bed , and rocking toilet. Would not recommend.

Our stay was a real disappointment. The breakfast area was unlit, and I'm not even sure they served breakfast as the people at the counter never mentioned it. The room was warm and musty smelling. The room had been cleaned, but there were no bath or hand towels, and there were only three pillows on the bed. We had to find a lady doing housekeeping and ask that this be corrected. The coffee maker didn't work, the shower curtain rail was nearly pulled out of the wall and the toilet seat was loose.
