Have stayed there on more than one occasion. Always been like a home away from home. Clean, the food is good, within walking distance of downtown Gruene, not noisy at all. I recommend Gruene River Inn to any and everyone.

As a professional musician I spend alot of time in hotels. This is one of my personal favorites. The staff is courteous and a accomidating. The view of the Guadalupe river is enchanting. Spend a few days at the Gruene inn. You will not be disappointed.

I am glad I only had one night here. The mountain climb to our bedroom along tight winding wooden stairs was like a tree house and is a danger if there is a fire. The room was uncomfortable and not very clean, soap scum in the tub and dirty floors. A creaky, uncomfortable bed. Rules of what not to do...

Not so bad, but not so good. Bed was hard as a rock. Bathtub faucet leaked and no shower. Had no view of anything. Was close to a lot of shops and food places and within walking distance. Nice people and were helpful when TV did not work. Had a little continental breakfast which was good. If I go back...

The price is cheaper than most other places in Gruene because it is further out from the Gristmill and all the other places but not by much. We stayed for $125 a night. The guest living area where breakfast is served was very nicely done with easy chairs, tables, and a great view of the river. The hotel sits atop...

We really enjoyed this Inn. The view from our balcony was unbeatable. Snacks and drinks are readily available and the breakfast is good. It is the same assortment every morning but there is enough variety to keep you satisfied: breakfast tacos, waffles, bagels/pastries, fruit, cereal etc. I slept great in the bed but the train kept me up the first...

I just read in a recent review that someone paid $145 a night at the Gruene River Inn and we paid $165, so now I really feel ripped off! The rooms are very small and very basic, with the view from the balcony being the only saving grace. There is a large notice posted in the bathroom advising you that...

We booked Gruene River Inn last minute during Spring Break 2012. We wanted an overnight "getaway" and I was so frustrated at the prices/night that we were being quoted. (Seriously - $300 for a 2* in Port A) Even in Gruene - we were looking at $175+/night. Noticed a friend of mine on Facebook had mentioned Gruene River Inn and...
