Our group has stayed here at least once a year for the past 25 years. In the past couple years the management has continued to improve the property. The pool looked better than ever, the grounds were well maintained, and the remodeled rooms were noted and appreciated. The AC worked well and the bathrooms were clean. Staff was accommodating and...

Our sorority had our formal here at the end of March! It was an amazing weekend with such accommodating staff. They really work with you to give your organization the best rate for such large parties. The rooms are perfect being so close together, it literally felt like summer camp for adults haha. Right on the river with amazing other...

I loved having the river so close to my room and only a short walk away was the pool. The staff was very welcoming to the lodge and could help me with anything that I needed. The rooms were well furnished, spacious, and updated. We enjoyed having the full kitchen to make a meal and eat it down by the...

Sad to see the negative comments about this hotel, my family stayed there last summer and had a blast! We loved the onsite tubing, and the river is right there on the property so you can tube right back to your room. Besides that, there's a lot of things to do not far from the lodge. At the wildlife park,...

We walked into an extremely clean room! It smelled great and they even turned the ac on before we got there so it would be cool for our arrival. It was right on the river and we enjoyed campfires nightly along the river. You can tell they have put a lot of work on this property to improve it! Can't...

The Lodge is filled with fun and friendly, helpful staff! Most of the clean, welcoming rooms have been remodeled with rustic Texan décor and make you feel right at home! The pool is pristine and the lawn vibrant green on an early post summer morning. (I’m an early riser!) But most of all, nothing beats jumping right in the river...

Pretty sure there's a guy living next door. We came back from a concert at river road ice house and this guy was sitting right outside our door. He looked like he was meth'd out or something. The room was gross and way overpriced but we were going to make the best of it until the creeper was hanging outside...

This place is nice, however, it could be so much more. Location is right on the Guadalupe River--prime location. Outdoor bar area is super cute. Pool is OK. Rooms are super dated and in need of a lot of cosmetic help. Little things like the room being super dark because 2 light bulbs were out of the fan, pictures of...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come on down and enjoy our laid-back, family owned river lodge in New Braunfels along the beautiful banks of the Guadalupe River. The Lodge is a place to let your hair down, relax, grab a cold beer and enjoy exciting activities on the river, from kayaking to tubing and rafting. Play a game of volleyball, dive into the sparkling swimming pool, or play video games on the big screen in our clubhouse. If none of that strikes your fancy, head to historic Gruene for some local shopping, enjoy our Texas flavors or people watch with a glass of Texas wine under the trees. Don't forget to check out Gruene Hall, the oldest dance hall in Texas. Later in the afternoon, back at The Lodge, relax in a hammock under the canopy of pecan and black oak trees. As night falls, the fireflies let you know that it is time for a campfire, s'mores and maybe a ghost story. Our accommodations and location are perfect for Snowbirds or Winter Texans as known by the locals. Many of our rooms have full kitchens and queen-size pillow-top beds. "It is a wonderful property with none of the cookie cutter look and feel of "today". It is a home away from home feel." ... more   less
