First off, if you're looking for a "resort" (as in a 5 star experience), keep looking. This place is "fully equipped" but bare minimums. My family and I have stayed here 3 years in a row... first with 4 people, then with 5, then with 10 people just this past weekend (Aug. 14-18). I'll make a bulleted list so I... More

The Other Place is located right in the middle between a public entrance to the Comal River and the Last public exit. One of the last free Comal River swimming/tubing benefits in New Braunfels. Rooms are clean but basic. No TV but that's not why you come here. Fully furnished kitchen. Lots of opportunities for the kids to play with... More

You can toob the river constantly right around this complex, which sits on a small peninsula. All these condos are very clean and have a deck that overlooks the Comal... More

Just returned from our annual Memorial Day weekend getaway at The Other Place in New Braunfels. We are always treated wonderfully and couldn't ask for a better group of folks in the front office. The cottages are always clean and the location is perfect since it's centrally located in town. I want to thank Barry and the staff for another... More

We have stayed at The Other Place Resort for the past three years. We enjoy the setting, green space and nature in the heart of town. The personnel are great and attend to your very need. We will be back next year.

My family has been coming to The Other Place for a mini-family reunion for 19 years. We love the fact that we can each stay in one of the separate units, but gather together as desired. The grounds are perfect for kids, particularly younger ones, with a small playground and lots of room to run around. With the kids are... More

With the can and bottle ban in place on the Comal River tubing is a family friendly thing to do in New Braunfels. The Other Place Resort was a perfect place to stay on the river. The resort is on a part of the Comal which is shaped like a horseshoe which means you can tube for 30 minutes and... More

First, don't let the word Resort fool you. This is very upscale Cabins in the woods! Love the atmosphere -very laid back. You honestly feel like you are in the woods, except you are in the middle of town. Perfect for easy access to all river activities and to Schlitterbahn. Secluded family place. We have stayed multiple times and WILL... More
