We love this place for us and our two young children (ages 6 and 3) because the lodges are CLEAN and a lot like RV camping (here's where the not quite glamping comes in) with carpet, linoleum, private bathroom, kitchen, TV, beds, and air conditioning in a great small community of other friendly families. Sure your knees touch the shower... More

What a great place to stay. We had so much fun and we will definitely be going back. The kids are still talking about it. Definitely a family place. I can't believe I had never heard of this place. Can't wait for next summer. The kids always had something to do.

My family and I have visited here once every year for a decade. What once was a lovely "coming home" kind of experience has turned into another cattle drive operation just getting you in and out of their hair. The desk staff are unpleasant and appear to be just trying to get through the day. The cabins, while compact; are... More

We were expecting a nice lodge and so it seemed for the pictures. However each unit is rented out as two rooms. We had the upper room with small kitchen for $189 per night. The place was like Travelodge or super8. Clean but very basic and small. The bathroom was smallest we've ever had. The cupboard doors are metal and... More

Thank you for your stay with us and for providing feedback. We recently updated our room pictures on the website and do feel they are an accurate representation of the room. However, our A-frame cabins are the original cabins from when the property was developed decades ago, so some rooms are smaller. There are cabin configuration options that are more... More

Our family has been going to Heidelberg Lodges for at least 22 years. Our boys were probably 8 & 6 when we first stayed at Heidelberg. My husband, youngest son (now 26), our daughter-in-law and myself just were at Heidelberg last week. We love the family atmosphere, pool and the river. What my husband and I really appreciate about Heidelberg... More

This was our first time at HBL and we had a blast. I call it a tri-fecta. You have a pool, the comal river and close to schliterbaun. We will be back soon. The only item that was shocking was the rental fee for canoe and paddle boats. But the free towels made up for it.

We have been going with a group to Heidelberg for 8 or 9 years. We always have a great time. The staff is fantastic. It may not be the fanciest of places, but it is well worth the money. It is so close to everything. There is always something for the kids (and adults) to do. I hope we end... More

Heidelberg Lodges have always had a soft spot in our heart. We took our children there many times when they were young and have always raved about Heidelberg. We had our 6 year old grand niece staying with us over her spring break and decided to re-live the fun. We were there March 16-19. It was definitely not what we... More

Thank you for your review. We apologize about the pool not being available. Our goal is to have it open by Spring Break. However, with all the wet weather this year, we weren't able to get it cleaned and refurbished properly in time. Our Winter Texan guests are all normally very friendly and accepting and I am sorry you encountered... More

If you're looking for an "off the beaten path getaway" check out the Heidelberg. We stayed last weekend for the night. It was off season so we had the place to ourselves. Pool not up and running yet, but we were there to kayak on the Guadalupe. Stayed in 1 bedroom #4 upstairs by pool and Comal. Nice location. Bathroom,... More

Stay two nights with my family. Booked after labor day and got a reasonable rate. Loved that my cabin faced pool and was adjacent to river. I found cabin to be stocked with appropriate utensils. My kids loved the game room and friendly staff. I was a bit wary when I read reviews that mentioned the vacation Nazi that worked... More
