Reviewed April 24, 2012

I think we were the first guests to stay in this accommodation which is a 2 minute drive from the main site. It was sooo peaceful and relaxing here, and had everything you could need. Fully equipped kitchen, washing machine and separate dryer, massive TV, recliner sofas. Only one suggestion: a few chairs and a table for the front porch (they may be there by now).
Would have liked to have stayed longer but there wasn't much going on in Bander when we visited.
Overall a great choice (Sycamore).

We really liked it here. It was offseason and incredible value at $40. We got a spacious and spotless cabin. It would have been 5 stars, but the bed was soft and there was a streetlight just outside the window that meant the room was a bit light. But we would definitely go back.

I have been staying at the River Front for many years. We are there every holiday weekend. We love it there. Have never been disappointed with them. They will always work with you to make your stay is a good one. Clean rooms, peaceful and not far from all the adventures in Bandera. You will never regret a stay at the River Front.

We stayed a few nights here at the River Front Motel, and it was one of the best I ever stayed at by far!!! The rooms are very peaceful and private like a mini house for you. Service was always there when needed (if needed). The river is right there and Christmas lights where up when we went and what a sight to see, deer came right to the front and you can feed them right out your hand. Bed is kinda springy, I slept fine though, for others it might be a little umcomfortable just fyi. Other then that rooms were great and a wonderful experience will visit again!!!!

Room Tip: we got two rooms both were really nice

We stayed one night in this hotel on our road trip round Texas. The hotel is a set of individual cabins, which we really liked, so no noisy neighbours! The room was lovely, and a nice clean bathroom, good comfortable bed. The only downside was that the air con was so noisy, we had to turn it off and swelter, or leave it on and be cold, but be kept awake by the noise. The ceiling fan just blew hot air around. Other than that, however, I would definitely recommend this hotel for visitors to Bandera. It’s walking distance to the town centre for an evening meal and some music at Arkey Blues! (Although not on a Monday, it was dead, and the owner was closing up at 10pm when we arrived - she said to come at the end of the week when the live music is on). Nice location close to the river and an ice cream stand for an afternoon siesta!

We made an impromtu trip to Bandera, Texas with another couple and our 2 daughters 25 and 28. We booked two cabins at the River Front Motel. They were individual cabins right across the road from the Medina River and a short walk from the main street where shopping, bars, and restaurants were so no car was needed. The cabins looked a little dated on the outside but were adorable on the inside. The furniture, bedding and decor were all really neat. Even the towels were great. Really fun time. Sat on the porch at night and deer walked right by within 20 feet.

Room Tip: There only about 12 cabins, we were in #10 because it had a king and 2 twins, it was near the road b...

We certainly had a far different experience than several of the reviewers below. We checked into Room #6 at the River Front Motel and were very pleased with the quality of the room, the help from the front desk, and the reasonable price ($90) for this 1920's motor court on the Medina River. The room was very cute and clean, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, TV, and one of the most comfortable queen beds anywhere. Short walk to the river's edge and into downtown Bandera, the Cowboy Capital of the World, with some nice shops and easy-to-get-to restaurants.
