I consider myself a prissy traveler for the most part but this trip was all about getting to Schlitterbahn. For two years in a row, we would drive up from San Antonio only to find the parking lots completely full :( Very sad. I was a little worried about some of the negative reviews but decided to chance it. Bottom line: If you are used to five star hotels you aren't going to get it here. I'm not sure you can find that in NB easily but the reason to stay here is if you want quick access to the park.

The good: Literally across the street from the park. We walked there and back.
Small and thus not full of screaming children
They have minimum age requirements so you're not surrounded by drunken college kids. Awesome
Had parking.
Units have small kithchenettes with microwave/fridge/small stove top and some dishes
Decent cable selection - a good thing since everything shuts down early here

The bad(annoying?)
Parking is assigned -but not obvious
On the checkout details it says you have to empty your own trash - I thought this was a little odd -but ok - whatevs
We had to dodge wasps on the way to our room - my husband got stung by one. The staff tried to kill them off but more showed up the next day

Room tip: Stay on the first floor? Wasp free?

Great accomadations for a family. Beds were like sleeping on a cloud. The view from the patio was awesome. Beautiful of the hill country and river. Walking distance to everything. So restful, peaceful and quiet. Loved every minute. Went home so rested.
Thank you so much for such a lovely place to get a way to.

This is the best place to stay in New Braunfels. I loved the owners and how accommodating they were. They made sure that we were enjoying ourselves constantly. The house was very clean and the deck on the back porch was so enjoyable as we spent most of our days back there. The furniture was comfortable and there was plenty of seating for all. Although the appliances were a bit outdated, they still did the trick. We had 14 people total and all of us had a blast. The house was like being at home. Thanks, Beth, for a wonderful weekend and for all your above and beyond efforts to make this trip a success.

I have stayed at this "resort" every year since1960. That was way before it was Schlitterbahn. I can tell you from experience that this resort is run the same as it always was. This stay was no different. Don't expect fancy rooms for the penthouse price that you pay. You won't get it. What you do get is a basic, no frills room, lots of noise from kids running up and down in front of your room at all hours of the night, and forget about sleeping in because of the water park noise. What you do get though is the best location for experiencing the water activities that New Bruanfels has to offer. Immediate access to the water park and the Comal river is just steps from your room to enjoy swimming or tubing. You can enjoy the river while drinking a few or more brewski's and not have to worry about driving. This resort is about the experience, not luxury. It never will be. I would recommend though that if you want to experience New Braunfels the way it "used to be", you better hurry before Schlitterbahn bull dozes the motel to make room for more water park rides. Just an honest perspective.
