Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed our restaurant next door & bar located at the inn. In regards to the noise, we do our very best to let guests know that our hotel is a historic building and can occasionally allow for noise. This is also why we provide ear plugs for guests. As stated here: https://www.princesolmsinn.com/rooms. As for your experience with some of our amenities in the room, we encourage all of our guests to please reach out to the front desk if there is a problem so that we can immediately fix it on site. We hope you'll be able to look past these few things & allow us another opportunity to host you in the future.

The historic Prince Solms! We had a blast. The staff was amazing. Trent went above and beyond to make sure our stay was awesome. The Jazz Club in the basement is so neat. I will say the only bad thing is the love music from outside can be heard in your room. They provide ear plugs.

We stayed at the Prince Solms Inn for one night. There were pro's and con's. I do think I would consider staying here again, but maybe not during the hottest parts of the summer. We arrived a little before the stated check-in time of 3PM. We found easy parking on a side street and had lunch at Muck & Fuss next door. I highly recommend the restaurant, it was easily the best meal of our trip. By the time we finished, it was about 2:45PM, so we tried to get into the inn, but the door was locked. I recalled there was a note on the reservation to find someone at the restaurant to let us in. Jo was super nice and was willing to let us check in early, but the rooms were not ready. So she offered us a place to change into our swimsuits so we could head to the Comal for some rafting. Upon our return, the rooms were ready and we got settled. As everyone else has noted, the hotel is old. The rooms are old, but well-appointed. I was in room 3, the only one with a king size bed. My main issue with the inn was that I was really warm in the room. The ceiling fan is nice, very powerful and noisy. I can't sleep with so much airflow. We finally figured out that we could adjust the transom window above the door to let some of the air-conditioned air from the hallway into the room. The only problem was that the lights in the hallway were kept on all night. It seemed odd to me that there was no air conditioning in the room, or maybe there was, but there was no way to control it. I'm not certain. I will say that I slept pretty well and the room seemed to cool down during the night. I got up early to grab a coffee in town and was again confronted with the locked front door when I returned a little before 8AM. I get that a locked door is good for security, but what am I supposed to do when I can't get back into my room? These little details were not explained to us. I did try to call the property twice prior to arrival. I left a message the first time and my call was never returned. So I guess that is the second issue I had. I think the guest to property communication could be better. I get that it is a small property, but I would have appreciated that return phone call. Would I stay again? I'd need clarification about the A/C for sure, but assuming the room would be cool at night, I probably would. I like historical properties and the staff was nice when we interacted with them.

Being a location in New Braunfels during the summer you have to offer some type of parking for guest. Parking is a nightmare in this town. They mentioned they had spots behind hotel but all were taken by their restaurant visitors or local tubers. Really stinks cause the hotel is cool and has a lot of history.

So sorry Will, but we actually do have two parking lots, which includes our private lot, and the NAPA Auto Parts lot across the street.

My mom and I absolutely loved our stay here! Dan is such a wonderful manager and he is very knowledgeable about town’s history. Reasonable price, historical building, breakfast voucher to great Union Station breakfast...Muck & Fuss next door is a delightful place to dine outside. Delicious food.

We just spent the weekend at Prince Solms Inn and had a wonderful stay. We arrived much later than anticipated due to traffic in Austin but I emailed to let them know and we went to the restaurant next door upon arrival to meet Dan to get checked in. We were shown our room, told about a couple of quirks with a hotel of this age and that was it to the check in process. We enjoyed the hotel and while we really didn't think we would need the white noise machine or the earplugs we did use the white noise machine to fall asleep. We stayed in Room 7 and the restaurant/bar is just outside the window and the bar in the basement were a little noisy but not horrible and the white noise machine did help. However, nothing could have prepared us for the leaf blower guy at 7:30'ish the next morning. WOWZA what a wake up- haha I don't fault the inn for this and they would have no control over that. The only reasons I did deduct a star from the review was 1) they was no daily maid service, I was a bit surprised and felt like that should have been noted somewhere in the room because we were unaware. It wasn't a big deal for us but it would have been nice to have know before leaving the room for the day and 2) the bathroom was tiny (understandably so) but there was room for a little side table beside the sink which would have made getting ready so much easier 3) an extra blanket in the room would have been nice as the thermostat is in the hall and someone must have gotten warm and turned the thermostat down because we ended up being a bit chilly. Lastly our ceiling fan had 2 modes...off and sounds like it's firing up an airplane. We mostly had it off for this reason. The bottled water in the room was great as was the ice machine and coffee bar in the hall. We discovered the refrigerator down in the living area and found it to be stocked with water and soft drinks which was great to grab since we didn't have maid service. We didn't really see anyone at the Inn working the desk the whole time we were there and weren't exactly sure how check out worked. We just left and left our door open upon departure like the other guests had done so hopefully that was all that was necessary. A little bit more communication and a person on site would've added the last star to my review. With all that said, we would most likely stay here again as it was charming and very convenient.

A girlfriend and I and our two 12-year-olds stayed in the Klein House. It was perfect for us: giant comfortable King bed, 2 singles in the sitting room for the boys. We could be loud in the evening and the quiet allowed the boys to sleep in. It’s a fantastic location in the middle of New Braunfels - a block from the main square and from the river. We walked to the 444 Tubing Company just a block away on the river to go tubing on the Comal, after walking to the breakfast spot that we had vouchers for (the hotel will start providing breakfast once they have finished the restaurant next door, scheduled for September). The main hotel and the little house are beautiful. Plumbing was a little delicate, but that’s to be expected in a historic property. The one downside is that the porch/garden at the front of the house look out over the cement works across the street, though there’s not much to be done about that! The owners were super-friendly and helpful, allowing us to change in a bathroom after our tubing, even though we’d checked out. I can’t wait for the restaurant next door and the speakeasy bar downstairs in the hotel to be finished, and then we will be sure to go back!

The Prince Solms Inn is exactly what it is advertised to be. A hundred plus year old inn with small rooms, thin walls, squeaky floors and a great personality. If you are looking for plush rooms with all the amenities you won’t be happy here. We loved the place and have moved it up to our #1 favorite place to stay in New Braunsfels. The rooms are small, but comfortable, and are mostly decorated with period furnishings. A complimentary coffee service and a mini fridge with water and soft drinks was available 24/7. We also liked the slow paced and homey atmosphere of the Inn and staff. There is a large parlor inside and a covered area outside where you can sit and relax with friends or other guests. Upper and lower front porches face the main street and are great for people watching. With free parking and an easy walk to the old down town area and most of the water venues it was the perfect place for us.

This is the third time we have stayed here. 6 really large comfortable rooms. The Klein house cabin out back if you want more Privacy. We have stayed there as well. Janice and Dan make everything about your stay so wonderful !! We will always come back. Clean crisp sheets, coffee and water upstairs whenever you need it. Super quiet location and you can walk to every dining hotspot and bar in town. You can ask each day for all the towels and bedding service , it’s not standard but they will do everything to make your stay the best . I cannot day enough about this tiny gem of a hotel. Love it and can’t wait to go back!! FIVE STARS!
