I called last minute and was able to get a great room at an amazing price. This place is very nice and clean. The views from our balcony were amazing! It was 29 degrees the night we stayed, so the fireplace in our room was awesome! It was very cozy and romantic! They offer a variety of wine and other...

Thanks so much for the great feedback about our accommodations and staff, I'll be sure to pass along the kind words.

We stayed for our anniversary. The rooms are very nice, with large oversized jacuzzi tubs. We were able to walk down to the banks of the Guadalupe River from the hotel, where benches were set up, and enjoy a bottle of wine to celebrate. Just a few minutes walk from downtown historical Gruene, this hotel is also perfect for people...

So glad we decided to book this hotel which is about a five minute walk from the centre of Gruene. Whilst other accommodation might be closer, none have the magnificent views like the Gruene River Inn. As soon as you enter, you find yourself in another world - a majestic high ceilinged living room with huge windows blows your mind...

This is a review for the Red Brick Cottages behind the Red Brick Inn not for the Gruene River Inn Building. It is exactly as Kay describes it below. It is a dump! It is in very bad need of an update. The staff are very nice and helpful but they need to do something about the RB "cottages". It...

Thanks for spreading the word about our one-of-a-kind view of the river, Mery! I'll be sure to let the staff know how much you enjoyed your stay. Besides possibly adding coffee pots in the rooms, is there anything else we could improve on for your next visit? All the best, Bill Evans

Stayed here on a Friday and Saturday night. Didn't have any problems with noise like some other reviewers but we didn't get back to Gruene until 1A each night so maybe that's why. Stayed in the Comal room. Clean but sparsely furnished with nowhere to place a bag or suitcase other than the bare hardwood floor. You have to walk...

We stayed in the little red cottages that are in town near Gruene Hall for a girlfriend reunion. The location is great but the units are shabby. The furnishings and bedding look like they all came from a garage sale in the 80's. The bedspreads looked like they had not been washed in years and smelled like perfume from the...

My husband and I stayed here on a whim for only one night. Our room was cute and cozy, with a gorgeous view of the river, however there was no fridge or microwave in the room. This was simply inconvenient for storing leftovers or beverages. When staying over night anywhere, a fridge and microwave is always a must for us....

Jillian. While it's great to know you and your husband enjoyed your stay, I think you bring up some good points about areas where we could improve. We will certainly consider adding refrigerators and microwaves to the rooms, as the last thing we want to do is inconvenience guests with having no place to store leftovers or drinks. As for...

My girlfriend and myself stay here every time we spend the nite in Gruene to catch a concert at Gruene Hall. The inn is very nice as it is right on the river. The rooms are nice, and the balcony is a great place to sit at night.
