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.

The Gruene River Inn sits high above the Guadeloupe River with balconies and great views. Interesting Inn with B&B amenities. The Rio Grande had high ceilings, a queen bed with SW decor, a huge jacuzzi tub and gas fireplace for colder weather. The balcony was small, but room to sit and take in the view. Friendly owner, lots of snacks... More

Great view from balcony. Nice rooms with gas fireplace adds special touch. Great breakfast. Super friendly staff to greet you. Snacks available in main area in case you get hungry at night (very thoughtful). Close to attractions. Bed was comfortable -- wish it was a little larger. Can't wait to get back for another overnight stay!

I called last minute and was able to get a great room at an amazing price. This place is very nice and clean. The views from our balcony were amazing! It was 29 degrees the night we stayed, so the fireplace in our room was awesome! It was very cozy and romantic! They offer a variety of wine and other... More

We stayed for our anniversary. The rooms are very nice, with large oversized jacuzzi tubs. We were able to walk down to the banks of the Guadalupe River from the hotel, where benches were set up, and enjoy a bottle of wine to celebrate. Just a few minutes walk from downtown historical Gruene, this hotel is also perfect for people... More

So glad we decided to book this hotel which is about a five minute walk from the centre of Gruene. Whilst other accommodation might be closer, none have the magnificent views like the Gruene River Inn. As soon as you enter, you find yourself in another world - a majestic high ceilinged living room with huge windows blows your mind... More

This is a review for the Red Brick Cottages behind the Red Brick Inn not for the Gruene River Inn Building. It is exactly as Kay describes it below. It is a dump! It is in very bad need of an update. The staff are very nice and helpful but they need to do something about the RB "cottages". It... More
