A nice quaint cabin. Right next to the beautiful medina river where you can tube down and make a nice day at the park. They do charge on the weekends to get into the park $5 per adult. Take your own or they have a company that rents tubes about 2 miles down the road. People are very friendly at... More

Located near all the attractions in town & has a beautiful park area with a gazebo for hanging out with friends. The cabins were clean & spacious & the staff was very friendly & helpful.

If you're looking for the Marriott keep on going. This place is a throw back to the 50's traveling public. I thought it was a cool distraction from the corporate lodging experience. Our room was clean, had plenty of towels and was comfortable. No smoking but each cabin has a nice porch with plenty of chairs. It's a little pricey... More

The location was great! It is a very easy walk into town and to the park across the street. It is a older property but the room was clean and the staff was friendly. They cleaned the room and provided fresh towels each day. We would stay again.

The main facilities are eight cabins in a loop around a lot facing the river. These are self-contained spaces with a double bed and two singles in main room with small kitchenette (refrigerator and microwave) and bathroom. Basic furnishings include on armchair and small folding table only, plus a TV and dresser, so you won't be lounging around here except... More

This property consists of a series of cabins across the street from Riverfront Park and about a block from the 11th Street Cowboy Bar. Great location, I just wish they took care of the place. Here are the problems I found: The cabins are not very secure. My door was very hard to pull and latch shut while two of... More

We choose to stay here for one night in Bandera the 'cowboy capital' of Texas. The location was fantastic as we could just walk into town meaning that we could have a drink together in this fun little town. The accommodation was lovely, the photos really don't do justice to the inside of the cabins as they are really spacious,... More

...and when it comes to the River Front Motel there is absolutely nothing wrong with that!  Highly recommend staying here when visiting Bandera.  Located right off the Medina River and within walking distance of Bandera's restaurants, bars, and sights.  Online reservations are quick and easy. Office staff is friendly and accommodating. The little cabins themselves are quaint, clean, and well... More
