We stayed at this B&B while passing through Bandera. It is separate from the River Front Motel, but is booked through them. The lovely young lady who checked us is gave us information about the town, restaurants etc. The B&B itself was perfect. Its a historical landmark, we felt like we were staying at a friends house. Breakfast of fruit,... More

My husband and I stayed in one of the rooms at the Bandera Bunkhouse which is right next door to the Chiken Coop. This was during Bandera's Madri Gras Celebration weekend. We found it to be very clean and tidy. The room was not very spacious but was adequate for us. The bathroom was very clean also. We would stay... More

I have stayed here several times and love it. The cabins are not luxury, but they are always clean, the water is hot, and the property is well kept, and it is located right by the river. Walk two blocks are you are in historic downtown Bandera..!!! Why stay anywhere else..?

We just stayed here for the one night, but could happily have stayed longer. These cabins are nestled in a great little town, close to delicious home style comfort food, one of the funkiest bars I've ever been to and just on the edge of a truly beautiful piece of park land!

We stayed here one night and it was good for the price. It was a log cabin inside. It was the perfect location to the river park. I would be back. It was primitive but we like that in a log cabin in a country town. It wasn't bad.

Stayed on a Friday night and expected a cozy cabin. Got a small cell. Bed and a toilet, that's about it. TV was so small couldn't see it over the bed rails; would have sat in a chair but there wasn't one in the room. No rugs on bare floor. Chairs an the front porch, but one had the seat... More

Not for the price we paid, cabin #6 off of main street though not numbered was ok once we found it, kind of spooky location though. bed was ok. Walked into the bathroom and NO MIRROR. How does one get ready for anything without a mirror?

We were expecting for 90 dollars...a week night reasonable , couzy and comfortable cabins. We found probably 20 year old, never renovated extremely basic rooms, that were minimally insulated with visible holes along the entrance door trough which the freezing cold entered. This compares extremely unfavorably with any e.g. La Quinta hotel, where for 70 dollars a night you even... More

I came here to work I have never traveled to work and enjoyed a place so much. Clean room. Wonderful bed. Walking distance to town. Quiet!! Deer everywhere. I just cannot say enough good about this place.
