Wow this place was gross

This hotel was dirty inside and out. Had to buy bleach to clean the mildew from the shower before using. The Wifi didn't work, the room was dirty the sheets on the bed had holes in them and there was no comforter on the bed. The TV had a blurry picture. I didn't even go to breakfast if the room was that nasty I didn't want to eat the food. Will never stay there again, I'm just glad I only had to stay for one night.

Wouldn't stay here again

When I checked in the girl at the desk confirmed that I had requested a non - smoking room. She put us in a smoking room. These rooms have not been kept up. The carpet was stained, paint in bad shape, and overall not pleasant to look at.the sheet on the beds you could see through they were so thin. We were out of the room all day the next day. When we came back our sink had all kinds of gunk in it that was disgusting. Something had backed up into the sink. We were given immediate attention and the problem was not resolved. It took an hour and a half for them to move us to another room. Again it was a smoking room and smelled worse than the first one. This motel should be rated a 1 not a 2 star. I stay often at another Econolodge in another city that is really nice. I would not stay at this one again.

Inconvenience

This was a very bad experience for us. I understand a low end hotel and limited services, but there is no excuse a dirty room and bad customer service. • We requested a non-smoking room and got a smoking room. • There were stains on the bathroom door and behind the night stand. • Missing blankets. • No hot water in shower. • Remote control for TV not working. As for Customer Service: • No manager on duty at night when we got there at 12:30 AM. Nor the next morning. • Front desk did not know what to do. And didn’t give us information on who to call.

Not a family hotel

Stayed at this hotel just one night while we visited Schlitterbahn. Other people staying at the hotel seemed to be the working class. A lot of people were standing outside their hotel rooms smoking and drinking out in the parking lot. I didn't feel very safe at all. The hotel wasn't too bad as far as maintenance. About what you would expect for $60-$70.

Good cheap option

Stayed here after a day at Schlitterbahn (cheaper than anything in New Braunfels)

Reasonably okay!

Based on the reviews at this site I was a little scared to go with this hotel. But I was wrong. This is a nice place, friendly staff, neat room. excellent for a one night stay. very close to prime outlets, Mcdonalds etc. There was a bar next to the parking lot, which made me a bit nervous to park the car next to that, but fortunately nothing happened. I booked 1 day before travel, so the stay was a bit pricey for one night compared to the facilities.

Would not recommend it

The hotel is really close to San Marcos outlets, so location was very convenient. The bedroom was clean and it had a microwave in the room, it helped a lot. At night while sleep its hard to sleep since its noisy and at morning there was no hot water in the shower.
