Decided to get away for the night with no place in mind to stay. Ended up here by luck of the "vacancy sign" and we were pleasantly surprised. The room was less than we budgeted for, on the water, and very comfortable! The gentleman at the front desk was super nice and we thoroughly enjoyed out time! Thank you for... More

Spouse & I stayed here during the annual American Music Fest at Gruene Hall. It is within walking distance but not directly in Gruene. You will have a 10 minute walk. Unfortunately sometimes this was difficult since Gruene doesn't really have sidewalks and the traffic during festivals and weekends can be heavy. If you have small ones, this might not... More

Booked the Comal room here and this has been the most relaxing place I've stayed at yet. Quite, quaint, relaxed and accommodating. Besides the jetted tub, which I LOVED, there's free snacks, coffee, tea, drinks (for a small fee) and even cake to help yourself to. I didn't get to enjoy breakfast though because my classes started early. There's also... More

We stayed on the weekend, the place was nice, needed a little updating. Like the beer garten behind the building, except at night when we were trying to sleep. It is right in the heart of everything- so that made it worth it.

My husband and I stayed here last weekend and we will stay again. The view from the porch was out of this world. The girl at the front desk was very friendly. The room was small but quaint. We watched the tubers float down the river. What a perfect stay. Thanks Gruene River Inn. Oh yes.... It's Walking distance to... More

A friend and I were in Gruene to attend a concert at Gruene Hall and wanted a place within walking distance. The Red Brick Inn is a home that has been converted into a bed and breakfast style lodging. (Breakfast is actually served at the Gruene River Inn down the road). Our room was called "Ernst Nest" and it had... More

We travel to Gruene often, the Gruene River Inn is our go-to place to stay. Yes, it is a little bit further of a walk that the mansion but considering the difference in price, I will walk a little bit further. Plus, there are all sorts of fun places to stop in on the way. The rooms are clean and... More

When I made reservations, it was the only place available to accommodate my family, the only place walking distance from all the Gruene fun, so I reserved it, paid for it, and called them several times, because I wasn't sure about it....since it is under the umbrella of Gruene River Inn, and I knew I didn't want to stay that...

This is my wife's and I first stay at the Gruene River Inn, and it most certainly wont be our last. The rooms were very clean, as was the entire place. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, always smiling. Awesome view from our balcony. Fixing to reserve for next year!!!! Keep up the good work GRI.
