so I visited this "resort" this past Tuesday as amazon had a trip deal, after calling THREE times to verify that the tickets included were for 2 days and both parks I ordered. I got all information directly from schlitterbahn as I am a firm believer in getting information straight from the horses mouth, and all 3 times was told... More

I'm actually writing this review as I lay in my bed at the hotel at schliterbahn. It's sooo bad I had to write it now! The location of the rooms are right by the train tracks!!!! The train runs by about every 30 minutes! And it's very very very loud. It's sooo bad that I would think schliterbahn would have... More

Leslieromo, Thank you for your recent review. I'm very sorry that the train disturbed you throughout the night. The Resort at Schlitterbahn does have a train track that neighbors the property. The City of New Braunfels has instituted a quite zone, meaning the train cannot blow its whistle at the crossings nearby, but you can still hear the train occasionally.... More

We went on a family trip with my sisters family. There were 9 of us and the reservations online were super easy. We stayed 2 nights and had a blast. Really love that we can start playing in the park even before we can check into our room. We were also allowed to stay as long as we wanted on... More

I've been going to Schlitterbahn since I was a kid, and now I love sharing it with my family! We make it an annual tradition to trek down to Schlitterbahn once per summer. We haven't stayed in the park in about 5 years until this summer. It really reminded me how nice it is to be close to everything, and... More

This is our 5th or 6th visit to Schlitterbahn New Braunfels but our first to stay on property overnight. I used a Amazon Local deal that gave us a room with kitchenette, a two queen bed bedroom and park entrance for 4 for two days for $179. This is like getting either two day park entrance or a hotel room... More

Went with children and grandchildren. Ages 1 to 60. There was something to do for all ages. We are planning our trip next year. Staying on site provided so much convenience that it allowed us to have more time to relax.

We just got back from a great trip! We stayed in room 1421 of the Schlitterstein Lofts. This particular room had a nice view of the Comal, not sure what the other lofts had for a view but it appeared some had more trees blocking the view of the river than others. We only had 1 set of steps to... More

This is awful... As much money as they get you would think they would update. The room is old, smells of mold, and everything is from 1970's. Tub is filty, and management wouldnt even speak with me about this, and basically said we could leave but wouldnt get a refund. Front Door has a hole in it... Save your money... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the park & being able to go back & forth between the park & our room for meals and naps. We stayed in the old section. The room definitely needs updating. We did not hear the train where we were, room #'s were in 160's. We will definitely come back again, but hope to stay in more... More
