Juniper Room

4.4 on September 12, 2016

The pictures do not do these rooms justice, my boyfriend and I stayed in the Juniper Room and it was just lovely. Everything is so clean and well put together, it felt very comfortable and most definitely a home-away-from-home, a perfect place to spend a long weekend! The breakfast pastries provided were delicious (there were so many different types), and the fruit was fresh and crisp. If the weather had been cooler, we would have walked to the center of town - it's only a few blocks away. We made use of the propane grill one evening, there are basic grilling utensils provided including tongs and a brush to keep things clean. The patio furniture is adorable and very comfortable to relax on; the wifi is fast (we were able to stream videos) and reaches outside. All of the linens were nice, and ample towels were provided. Overall, this was so much nicer than staying at a hotel (and super close to Schlitterbahn and Comal river floating) and hopefully a trip I can convince my boyfriend to repeat when the weather is cooler and we can spend more time walking around town. Thank you so much for the hospitality and the comfort!

Great place to stay. We will be back.

This was a wonderful place to stay. All the extra touches were so sweet. Fromt the fruit cups and water in the fridge to the off bug spray. Everything was awesome.

Just perfect!

Julie and Brent thought of everything we would need for your stay. Delicious pastries, yogurt and fruit for breakfast. Ice in the frig. Wine glasses and corkscrew! Even bug spray on the porch, so we could enjoy the covered porch and pretty garden. Lots of info in the room on what to see and where to eat. We will definitely stay there again!!

Lovely Weekend

We had a lovely weekend at the Inn. It was so nice to be able to travel with another couple and share a space that had a common area and two complete rooms.

We had a lovely weekend at the Comal Inn. The place was quiet, clean, and the owners were friendly. It is the perfect place for two couples to stay and have privacy and a space to gather together.

My family and I stayed here. The accommodations were just as pictured. The Juniper Room was lovely. I would certainly recommend staying here, and should we be traveling in that area I will stay again. Thank you for the most relaxing and beautiful environment.

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

4.8 on July 10, 2016

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.

Innkeeper Response
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. Und wir freuen uns, Sie bei uns im Comal Inn. Sie sind jederzeit willkommen zurück !! Sichere Reisen!!

Feels like home, we love coming back again and again!!

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!
