“Excellent cabins”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

Stayed here with friends, walked into Bandera in <5 mins. Quiet setting, and feel you have your own place rather than a hotel room. Would recommend.

There are not many places to stay in Bandera but this one is recommended. It consists of individual detached cabins (although numbers 6 and 7 are semi detached) close to the river and the park in Bandera.

The cabins are basic with pine furniture but are kept very clean, and with the location are perfect for a short break in this great little town.

We arrived on a Wednesday which was fortunate as there is a communal bbq each Wednesday in a bar in the town. All you do is buy your meat from the local meat market shop and turn up. The bar supplies for a nominal charge all utensils which you will need plus a side salad and potatoes. There is then live music and dancing. All the cowboys come to town so even if you do not dance the people watching is fantastic. We understand that at the weekend there are simulated gunfights and rodeos. We would love to have seen them. The people in the town give you a very warm welcome.

We will certainly try to go back someday and would stay at this motel again.

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!
