Cypress Room at Comal Inn

5 on April 30, 2017

We came into town for a weekend of music at Gruene Hall and the Whitewater Amphitheater. We have been coming to New Braunfels for over 20 years and have never stayed in the downtown area. We stayed in the Cypress Room at the Comal Inn and loved it. It was very clean and charming, and made it easy to walk to the Farmer's Market and other places to see in downtown. Definitely, we will stay here again!

Mountain Laurel- spring break

Our room was within walking distance to the Comal river and Schlitterbaun. This B&B is nestled in a quiet neighborhood. The room was clean and lots of brochures on what to do in the area. My husband and I had a relaxing time enjoying our anniversary. We would definitely stay here again.

Great Service, Great Stay.

I have been staying at the Inn on about 4 occasions and have been very happy each time. This last time I asked if they would put some Half & Half creamer in my room for my coffee.....and they did! Thank you and looking forward to being back.

Cute and quiet

We stayed in the Juniper room on a Saturday night. The room was clean, comfortable, quiet, and well-appointed. It has a private entrance from a private patio. There is a single cup coffee maker, microwave, and refrigerator. The owners supply assorted pastries, juice, fruit, yogurt, and water bottles in the room. I definitely recommend staying here. It is a good value. Our only issue was a plug-in oil diffuser. I immediately unplugged it upon entering the room because it released such a strong aroma (we could still smell it in the morning although it was fainter). We struggle with allergy issues and the strong smell from these type of plug-ins exacerbate our symptoms.

Only a quick walk to down town!

Cypress Room

Really enjoyed our stay at the Comal Inn. The room was very comfortable, the neighborhood was pleasantly quiet and there was plenty to do within walking distance. Will definitely have to come back sometime and stay longer.

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!!
