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..


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!


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!


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!


Failed in some areas

3.2 on March 23, 2016

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.


Quaint & cozy

Doesn't have dining onsite, but refrigerator stocked with some necessities & room had fruit & pastries available to enjoy.

Change of ownership has really helped in improving the overall experience.

Innkeeper Response
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.


Relaxing and charming B&B

4.6 on November 15, 2015

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.

Innkeeper Response
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. We want our guests to feel special and at home. We are located in a quiet neighborhood, yet walking distance to all the downtown restaurants and entertainment.


Wonderful place to stay in New Braunfels!

5 on November 11, 2015

We have been staying at Comal Inn for many years and this is our first stay since the new owners, Julie and Brent, took it over. They have really spiffied it up! The decor is very soothing and comfortable, the breakfast goodies were excellent and plentiful, and the location just can't be beat. Julie and Brent were eager to make sure that our stay was top notch and that we felt spoiled. We had a great time and will be back!

Innkeeper Response
We are so glad we have guests staying with us again and again and again. Whether you are a "first time" guest or a guest returning for the "9th year in a row", we want to provide you with a nice, clean, and comfortable place to stay. Make the Comal Inn your go to place when visiting New Braunfels, Texas!
