My husband & I stayed 2 nights at the Faust for his birthday weekend. Hotel is old and historic, so it's going to have it's charm & character flaws. The room we had was an executive king (room 217), which I felt was a nice size. It included a microwave & mini-fridge. The bathroom was small, but funcitonable. Kind of... More

We spent the weekend here. Upon arriving, the lobby is really charming. The attached bar has pretty good food and decent prices, although it's not the cleanest it could be. But that's where it stops! I appreciate historical hotels, however I do not want the room's beds, carpet, bedspreads, etc. to also be 50 years old. We stayed in a... More

I can only rate the brewery as we didn't stay at the hotel. Beer & food was good. All of the beer was tasty. I had the beer soup. I loaded it up with all the extras. That may have been a mistake. Sauerkraut overpowered the taste of the soup. Everything else the family had looked and tasted great. I'd... More

Since 1929 this hotel has stood in this stop. It was originally call the "The Travelers Inn" (I believe). Then purchased by Walter Faust and after his death the hauntings. Well, didn't encounter any ghosts but rooms are all original settings for that time period and rather small (even the king size rooms). But, hey, you go for the atmosphere... More

If you like history and beautifully restored old things, stay here for a night or two. My daughter was not as enthralled as I with the 1920s charm because everything was smaller and simpler back in those days. I loved it. I found out after checking in that it's haunted by Walter Faust and friends. We didn't experience any haunting,... More

Stayed at the hotel a couple of years ago and it was a great experience. This time we just stopped at the pub for a beer and a quick bite to eat. Very friendly atmosphere and diverse selection of beers. Highly recommend.

Had a room for five nights over Fourth of July weekend. Totally full, full restaurant and bar, difficult parking, and I agree with the smelly room comments. However, I complained, and the AC was "looked at" and seemed better the last 24 hours. Not odor free, but improved. The desk managers and all personnel were very friendly and accommodating. I...

An older hotel in the style of European hotels. It is clean enough and comfortable enough. Rooms have antiques but flat screen TVs. We had a coffee maker, refrigerator and microwave too. Staff is reasonably friendly but frequently not at the front desk which is only a problem if you leave your key when you go out. Some new carpets... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights so that we could enjoy the outdoor activities in and around New Braunfels. I found the hotel to be clean and charming. We stayed in the King Executive Suite, which was filled with antique furniture. It was small, but very clean. It had a good-sized refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, and... More
