This was a stay in low season so it was rather quiet. We really liked sitting on the porch looking at the Comal River. A few tubers floated by. The water was a little chilly getting in but rather nice once we took a plunge. It was clean and the management was cordial.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit with sleeper. There was 6 adults and 4 children. Though we were crowded it gave us the opportunity to spend it doing things together like playing board games. There is a great porch for just hanging out. The weather did not cooperate on us most days and one day the river... More

The inside of the cabin is dirty, outdated, un-quaint. Dirty carpet. Not again Front desk was nice, has ymca feel. Not worth the money $180 a night. Have to wash your own dishes & take your own trash out. Close to Schliterban, downtown walkable.

My family and I have been coming here for 15 years. It is a quiet resort where you can enjoy the Comal River at your back door. It is directly across the street from Schlitterbain's 3rd park. The front office staff is very friendly. We always rent out the River room which has 9 bunk beds. It's like a camping... More

We have been going to The Other Place for over 30 years. We go every year for our family reunion. We love the common area outside of our cabins where the whole family can gather outside and airbag the picnic tables and socialize together. There is also a volleyball court, horse shoe pits, and a place area for the kiddos.... More

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
