This property consists of a series of cabins across the street from Riverfront Park and about a block from the 11th Street Cowboy Bar. Great location, I just wish they took care of the place. Here are the problems I found: The cabins are not very secure. My door was very hard to pull and latch shut while two of... More

We choose to stay here for one night in Bandera the 'cowboy capital' of Texas. The location was fantastic as we could just walk into town meaning that we could have a drink together in this fun little town. The accommodation was lovely, the photos really don't do justice to the inside of the cabins as they are really spacious,... More

...and when it comes to the River Front Motel there is absolutely nothing wrong with that!  Highly recommend staying here when visiting Bandera.  Located right off the Medina River and within walking distance of Bandera's restaurants, bars, and sights.  Online reservations are quick and easy. Office staff is friendly and accommodating. The little cabins themselves are quaint, clean, and well... More

This is a great little place for some fun on the Medina River. Place is clean and neat. Bathroom is large. AC works great and is in walking distance of the river as well as shopping and nightlife. Lots of Geocaches in the area if you are in to that. Beds could use an upgrade though!

We stayed here for a single night. It was the cheapest accomadation in town, but certainly the best too. Friendly landlady and nice people around. The bedlinen and towels were clean as were the room. You rent your own "cottage" and it even has a small kitchen. We sat at the porch outside in the night and enjoyed our home... More

The cabin where nice and the staff was nice and helpful, but i think it's overpriced concidering the cabins. Anyhow we enjoy the stay, the possibility to go in town walking and the porch. The beds were fun but not really comfy, and the nights were very cold (extra blanket are provided)
