We stayed in the Texas Cottage and everything was great. The two bedrooms and two bathrooms were perfect for our group of mom and dad, 2 year old and grandma. The full kitchen was immaculate and contained everything we needed. Beds were comfortable and clean. We could have stayed for weeks; everything we needed was there. Breakfast from Naegelin's bakery and fresh fruit and juice made it convenient. We will definitely return!
Thank you for your review! We are happy you enjoyed your stay and hope you stay with us again soon!! You are always welcome!!

When you pull up on the street and there are deer walking around in the neighborhood, you can tell it's going to be a pretty relaxed environment. And everything just got better from there. Attention to detail on the amenities and cleanliness. Just a block or so from all the downtown restaurants. And the Downeys are very gracious hosts. The only issue we had was that the router needed to be reset, and they took care of that right away. We will be staying here in our future visits to New Braunfels, and we will be looking forward to that visit soon..
Relaxing, quiet, clean and comfortable......that is the Comal Inn! Thank you for your review! Hope you are able to stay with us again soon........you are always welcome!

We came to New Braunfels as a short get-away to meet some friends. Since we were only going to be in town one night, B&B options were limited. I was pleased to find that Comal Inn allowed for a single night's stay. Upon arriving, we were greeted with the grounds -- separate rooms with porches that have you feeling you are the only person there, a quaint garden with seats & a swing, a water feature, blooming flowers, and songbirds, and safe, off-street parking. We sat on the porch after arriving and were lucky enough to meet the owner, Julie & Brent. They are a delightful couple who live on-site. We enjoyed our conversation with them. Prior to arrival, I emailed Julie with some questions about dining in the area. She gave us several suggestions and we were pleased with her advice. The room in spacious, but gives you a comfortable, homey feel. The bed is super comfy! We did not require breakfast in the morning, but we had been supplied with coffee, tea, orange juice, yogurt, water, and ice. We will most assuredly return to the Comal Inn on our future trips to New Braunfels!
Thank you for your kind review! The Comal Inn is home away from home! Located in a quiet neighborhood, yet a short walking distance to all the popular attractions, downtown NB, the Comal River, Schlitterbahn, and a short 5 minute drive by car to Gruene. The Comal Inn is a place to come relax, refresh and rejuvenate on your very own private porch, in the garden area with blooming flowers, birds, squirrels, and deer roaming the neighborhood and the grounds. We hope you will be able to come back and visit us soon!

My girlfriends and I needed a night away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life (i.e. husbands, work, children, etc.) so we booked a room (Cypress Room) at The Comal Inn, and we could not have been happier with our choice. We could only get-away for one night but wanted to float the river, walk to grab a bite to eat and sit on a nice patio and The Comal Inn satisfied all of those needs. Even though we stayed for one night, Brent and Julie had fruit, yogurt, pastries and water waiting for us in the room fridge. Thank you for the wonderful, clean and comfortable accommodations. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Brent & I are glad you enjoyed your stay! We strive to make the Comal Inn a quiet, safe, clean, comfortable place for all our guests to stay. Thank you for your kind review. Come back soon!!

With such a low price, I expected a lot less than my boyfriend and I received here. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was very clean and smelled wonderful. There was a great deal more privacy than I expected from the photos online. The day before Easter, we came back to the inn to find gourmet Easter-themed cookies at the door. Little touches like this made the stay even more special. The owners are a couple and live on site. The gentleman was very friendly and welcoming. The location is great- within walking distance of Schlitterbahn and many local restaurants, as well as a short drive from Gruene. Bonus: the tub in the Cypress Room has jacuzzi jets! ( Not in the description, as far as I know.) You won't be disappointed if you book with Comal Inn!
Thank you for your kind review! We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay. Our guests are important to us and we want everyone who stays at the Comal Inn to feel special! We hope you will be able to stay with us again in the near future!

The location was good and the room itself was fine, but there were a number of small problems that added up to somewhat unpleasant experience. From the Jacuzzi tub without working bubble jets (called, but couldn't reach anyone) to the TV remote that only worked from one spot in the room (new batteries?), there were so many things that turned what should have been a relaxing stay into a frustrating one. Most importantly, the pillows were terrible. They were so puffy that my neck physically couldn't stay in a healthy position and I am still in pain four days later. Then consider there are notes of what not to do, like "don't eat in bed." On one hand that is understandable, but there is no table in the room, so where are people supposed to eat. It is a B&B after all. People are expected to eat in the room and the only reasonable surface to eat on is the bed. It's the lack of thought about the experience of the guest that resulted in failure. On the plus side, the continental breakfast was nice.
First, let us say “thank you” for staying with us at the Comal Inn. We let our guests know from the time they make a reservation to when they arrive, that we live on property at the Comal Inn in the historic New Braunfels Cottage. We encourage all your guests to come knock on our door if there is a problem or an issue that needs to be resolved. Or, they can call us at the phone number posted and leave a message if there is no answer………if you don’t leave a message we don’t know who is calling and we consider the phone call not important and we won’t return the call. During your stay, we visited several times and it was never mentioned that there were problems. Yes, we have signs throughout the room stating important information for our guests. For example the one in the bathroom stating that if the Jacuzzi jets don’t work, then the reset button needs to be reset and where the reset button is located in the room. Yes, we have a sign reminding guests not to eat in bed. We provide nice, comfortable, expensive bed linens, blankets, comforters, and duvets. Some guests need to be reminded that spaghetti sauce, red wine, magic markers, crayons, sunscreen, etc. won’t wash out and will ruin the linens. In each room there are at least 6 pillows on the bed and 4 extra pillows in the closet………all different sizes and thicknesses. Hopefully one pillow will meet our guest’s likeness. Each room has it’s own private porch with an outdoor table & chairs to eat breakfast, and comfortable chairs and love seat to sit and relax in. We have recently added a table and chairs inside each room for those guests who prefer to eat inside the room. We invite you to come back and stay with us again!

Thank you for staying with us at the Comal Inn! We state on all of our advertising, marketing, website, and reservation agreement (agreement that all guests must acknowledge they have read and agree to before they can make a reservation) that we do not have an onsite dining facility. We state that your breakfast will be served in your room where you can enjoy your breakfast whenever is convenient for you....without having to get dressed up and without having to be in a dining room within a certain time frame. We have made every attempt to let our guests know what breakfast at the Comal Inn consists of before they make their reservation. Your breakfast will consist of a tray of assorted breakfast pastries/bread from New Braunfels' famous historic Naegelin's Bakery, fresh fruit, yogurt, orange juice, bottled water and coffee. Every guest should know what is offered for breakfast before they make their reservation. We invite you to stay with us again and enjoy our little Inn and all that New Braunfels has to offer!

Change of ownership has really helped in improving the overall experience.
We purchased the Comal Inn in January 2015. In both the cottages, we installed new flooring, painted the interior, changed out furniture and accessories. In the 3 private rooms, we painted the interior, changed out furniture and accessories. We gave the Inn a new face-lift.

Stayed for one night in the midst of a 4 week road trip. Wish we could have stayed much longer because it was such a pleasant change from the hotels and resorts we had been staying at. Would love to make another visit when we could stay longer and enjoy all that New Braunfels and the Comal Inn have to offer.
Thank you for your kind review! Yes, we are not like the typical chain hotels and resorts. We own, operate, and live on the property at the Comal Inn. Our Inn is small, quaint and cozy.
