Quaint and Cozy!

We were pleasantly surprised upon arriving at The Comal Inn, as pictures just don't do it justice. The rooms were clean, organized, and came with plenty of snacks and towels and toiletries. Julie and Brent also were able to accommodate an early check in, which we greatly appreciated. The neighborhood is darling and it's a close walk to Schlitterbahn and the Comal River. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will stay again for all of our future trips to New Braunfels!

Mit viel Herz und Geschmack eingerichtete Unterkunft

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Alles ist geschmackvoll und mit viel Herz eingerichtet. Das Frühstück steht bereits für den kommenden Tag im Apartment, so konnten wir die Kuchenstücke bereits nach unserer Ankunft mit Kaffee genießen. Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Even though most of my ancestry is German, I don't know how to speak the language (I know only a few words). I wish I could respond back to you in German. I had to use "Google Translate" to read your review. Thank you for your kind words. We hope you had a great time visiting our awesome town and country. And we are glad you stayed with us at the Comal Inn. You are welcome back anytime!! Safe travels!! Guest Review via "Google Translate": We felt very comfortable. Everything is tastefully decorated and with a lot of heart. Breakfast is already for the next day in the apartment, so we could enjoy the pieces of cake after our arrival with coffee. We would definitely come back. Owners Response via "Google Translate": Danke für Ihre netten Worte. Wir hoffen, Sie hatten eine großartige Zeit, um unsere fantastischen Stadt und Land zu besuchen.

Love staying at Comal Inn. Close to downtown and the river and accommodates our group well. Cottage provides "at home necessities" and a great gathering place. Love rocking on the front porch. Thanks for having us again!

We really enjoyed our stay, the beds were like sleeping on a cloud. The pastries were dry and seemed old, but all the other foods was great. They think of everything you would need for a pleasant stay.

Cozy cottage

5 on May 03, 2016

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!!


Comal Inn Stay

4.8 on April 20, 2016

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!


A treasure in New Braufels

5 on April 19, 2016

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!

Innkeeper Response
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!


Booking Comal Inn again...ASAP!!!!

5 on April 14, 2016

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!

Innkeeper Response
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!!


Unexpectedly wonderful

4.8 on March 31, 2016

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!

Innkeeper Response
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!
