What a Great Visit

4.6 on August 18, 2014

My wife and I are not "B&B People"...or so we thought. We have had one prior B&B experience before Prince Solms Inn, and it was not our favorite - we usually prefer nice hotels and the services and consistency they typically offer. However...for Christmas, we received a $100 gift card to bedandbreakfast.com, and opted to use it for our one night stay in New Braunfels so that it wouldn't go to waste. We were blown away by the friendliness of the staff, wonderful decor, comfortable rooms, and an overall good experience. Upon checking in, the man who was helping us said, "Oh, you selected a room that I think is too small...I'm giving you a free upgrade." What a way to start your stay! I must say, Prince Solms has potentially converted us to B&B people!


excellent stay

Delightful Experience!

Our room was so nice and the owner, Al, was the most gracious host my husband and I have ever encountered. He bent over backwards to make our stay comfortable and the service and rooms are excellent. Very clean and every room is so different from the other, but they are all lovely. Thank you again for making our stay a very nice memory.


Warm and hospitable hosts, yummy breakfast and great location!

Third stay at this B&B and can't wait to go back!


Charming…and Convenient!

I stayed at the Prince Solms Inn for a full week while traveling around the Hill Country for business, and I found it to be the perfect home base. And I mean that – it really felt like home. Cozy accommodations, exceptional customer service, and a great breakfast! One day, I even missed breakfast, and was delighted to find fresh fruit, yogurt, and orange juice in my room when I arrived back at the inn. Also, the location in downtown New Braunfels could not be better – you are right on the main strip and seconds from great restaurants and other historic attractions, like the newly-rededicated county courthouse. I hope I find myself back in town – and back at Prince Solms – some day.


Favorite place to stay in NB

4.6 on January 16, 2013

The Prince Solms Inn is a unique and historical inn with genuine freindly service. My wife and I frequent the inn any time we're in NB for any of the local events or concerts. The innkeeper is one of the nicest and most accommodating owners I've ever stayed with. The rooms are period, the floors sqeak, and the bathrooms are unrenovated (small). We love the place because its original. The breakfast is great although we seldom make it downstairs choosing to sleep in. The Piano Bar downstairs is a great place to spend the evening. Your walking distance from downtown or $20 will get you round trip to Gruene.


Prince Solms Inn was fantastic!

We stayed there New Years Eve, piano bar in the basement of the Inn, very convient and close to the old town square, about a 2 block walk. Would recommend to anyone to stay here. We will be back!!


Wonderful!!

We stayed in Sophie's Suite. I wanted to hear the piano music. Unfortunately, I wasn't feeling good & we stayed in the room only to hear obnoxious noise. The piano guy bailed out. Then at 2am I heard a very loud "thump thump thump" noise. Wishing it was the spirit lady that is known to roam the inn but, it was the guys cleaning up the bar & threw the trash can down the stairs rather than walking it down. OTHER than that we had a WONDERFUL stay!! Very good breakfast!!! Slept very well in the king bed. The room is decorated in Victorian style with New Braunfels history. There is a small frig, microwave & large flat screen tv. We stayed after Christmas but, more than likely I would pick a room upstairs away from the piano bar/patio if you stay during the summer or Wuerstfest.
