Last Fling Before School Starts

  • 5 of 5

I wrote a review as soon as I got home but for some reason it wouldn't let me submit. I'll try again.

Last Fling before school started! Three days on the most beautiful river in Texas, The Comal. We as Grandparents have always thought if we could provide the opportunity for our children and grandchildren to spend some time together we would keep them close. Well it has worked. We have been bringing our family to New Braunfels since they were small children. Over the years we could always count on "The Float Inn ", first known to us as Camp Warnecke, to be the perfect place. The views of the Comal, the condition of the Condos, have not ever disappointed us. Through the years our kids interest have changed. But they have always enjoyed what this beautiful spot has to offer. When they were toddlers and pre-teens we spent most of our time at Schlitterbaun. Now that they are college age and high school age they enjoy floating the river, eating at Pat's and the Gristmill and taking country western dance lessons at Gruene Hall. My 82 year old husband was floating and staying up with his grandkids. I want to be just like him when I grow up. I waved to them off my balcony facing the beautiful Comal River. I had the best seat in the house. We could recommend this property to any of our family and friends and by the way have done this. Also being 78 years old and not too technical I really appreciated Suzanne talking me through the new fangled lock process. Which if my kids or grandkids had been there it would have been a breeze. Loved our time at "Float Inn 2# Thanks Sonja Angelo

Great location for relaxing river/Schlitterbahn fun.

  • 5 of 5

This was not our first trip to New Braunfels/Schlitterbahn area, but it was our first time to stay here. The condo was clean, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was stocked with utensils and the location was perfect. It was very relaxing to sit on the back porches and drink coffee in the morning and watch the river flow by. You can literally walk across the street and down one block and drop your tube in the cold Comal for 30 -40 minute float. The chlorinated portion of the Schlitterbahn is across the street as well.

Great place and location!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for a getaway in New Braunfels. There was 7 of us and we had plenty of room. Downstairs has the kitchen, 1/2 bathroom, dining area, and living room with one of the balconies overlooking the Comal River, while the upstairs had the master bedroom and it's own private balcony which is also overlooking the Comal River, and guest bedroom with two full beds. The condo is completely equipped with nearly everything you need for a small getaway, including a stocked kitchen of cooking supplies and bathrooms with great towels. The location was great as it has it's own access to the Comal River that is near the end of other floats including Rockin R, and you can bring your own tubes and get out at the condo's access. I would definitely recommend this condo for anyone. I will be checking out this condo for future stays in New Braunfels. Thanks Suzanne for the great stay!

Beautiful property with fabulous view of the Comal!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Float Inn 2. The property was clean and beautiful. The balcony views were fabulous. The property has direct access to the Comal river where you can swim, float, and snorkel. It is also directly across the street from Schlitterbaun water park, an easy walk if you want to avoid the parking traffic. We had a great time!

Great Location and Accomodations

  • 4 of 5

We did not know exactly where the location was while booking online. We were very happy to find out that it was directly on the river and across the road from the water park. Could not have been better. Easy walk to everything we wanted to do.

Accommodations were very clean with cookies even waiting on the counter! Nice supply of about anything you needed. Soaps, trash bags and all the little things. We had ample room for the seven of us that stayed. Two balconies overlooking the river were great to sit out on.

Only little frustrating thing was the gate directly outside out location was locked most of the day Sunday and forced us to walk down a couple hundred more yards to get in and out.

Would definitely go back.

Memorial Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The condo is in a great location right before the Rockin R exit. We had a group of 8 and we were comfortable. There are 2 large patios overlooking the Comal River. Suzanne, the manager, was great. She was available anytime we needed her. Definitely will rent again.

New Braunfels, the city of 2 rivers, is famous for 'tubing' or floating down the river. Locals and tourists both enjoy the river year round. The Comal River is in your backyard inviting you to observe local wild life or jump in for a swim, kayak trip, or relaxing float. Downtown New Braunfels is home to the oldest bakery and hardware store in Texas. Pick up an apple strudel from Nagelin's bakery. Shop for souvenirs at Henne's Hardware. Step back in time to the early 1900s to enjoy a good meal, happy hour, or live music at the historic Phoenix Saloon and Chili Parlor. Visit the Sophienburg Museum to learn about pioneer life of the German settlers who came to New Braunfels in the mid 1800s. They are all within walking distance of the condo. Don't forget to visit nearby Gruene which is a national historic district. Visit Gruene Hall, the oldest dancehall in Texas, to hear live music daily and see where legends like Willlie Nelson, Lyle Lovett, and George Strait have all played. Be sure to visit the old fashioned ice cream parlor at the General Store, eat at the Grist Mill overlooking the Guadalupe River, or taste a Texas wine at The Grapevine. Nearby Landa Park has a miniature train, the 'Founder's Oak' dating back to the 1700's, a lake for paddle boating, a dance slab for free evening concerts in the Summer, Panther Creek hiking trail, and pavilions for family picnics. Enjoy a scenic drive up River Road to nearby Canyon Lake to rent a boat or jet skis. Natural Bridge caverns is nearby. San Antonio's Riverwalk, Seaworld, the Alamo, and La Valitta (shopping district for authentic Mexican crafts) are only a 30 minute commute. The outlet mall in San Marcos is only 20 minutes away. Visit Austin's famous 6th street and see why Austin is the 'live music capitol of the world.' There is so much to do that you will want to keep coming back to New Braunfels as a guest at the condo!
