“great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

We stay here every summer for 1-2 nights when we go to Schitterbaun. It is a good value and 40-60 dollars cheaper a night than the chain hotels a tenth of the mile up the road. Breakfast is limited and we love to cross the highway 46 to eat a hot Mexican breakfast at the Palm Restaurant in the morning (American style options also available.) We don't usually swim at hotel so didn't evaluate the pool closely. The rooms are clean. The air conditioning is fantastic and easily adjusted. Our room was cool on arrival. The beds are fair.The manager was friendly.
I wouldn't want to stay for weeks, but this is a good value for a family on a budget.

Second stay here. Staff are pleasant, rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Didn't use pool but is a reasonable size and clean. Good location - approx. 45 mins Austin and San Antonio. Recommend visiting Gruene for dinner.

Our first time at this place. Apparent recent "face-lift" to the structure, but owner missing details of customer appreciation. More "motel" feeling than "hotel". And yes, they nave a nice vinyl banner that says "motel". But, we've stayed at other places where you REALLY feel welcome. This was basic, basic. Roof over your head and dry. Upside - it was away from freeway and train tracks. And location was easy-in easy-out. A 2-level structure with room entry from outside catwalks and parking lot facing doors. No elevator for elderly, handicapped or lazy. Stairs are the concrete kind housed in metal stair-tred pans, which are rusting out with some edges beginning to curl and are trip hazards. If stairs are being ignored, then what else has the fresh coat of paint covered up? Our room was not vacuumed well. Left-over debris here and there. The shower curtain had mold along the bottom edge of it - yuck. The room had been re-caulked poorly and was already pulling away from the backsplash behind sink, around baseboards and tub area. The bathroom just felt "yucky". It was a feeling and usually feelings are right. The air-conditioner worked, but ever so slowly and low/underpowered. The A/C "clunked" every time the compressor kicked off, occassionally waking me. There was dust everywhere on top edges, surfaces, etc. And a nice yucky filthy bathroom door handle with sort of "gunk" on the handle. We didn't touch it. For the budget-minded this could work. For us though, we will NOT be back. Worst thing was, upon check-out, the person did not ask "how was your stay?" If a place has no interest in your stay, they don't care, and don't care if you come back, which we won't. There are too many other places in New Braunfels that "want" us to stay with them. Lesson learned - sometimes trading $5/night is not worth what you get out of the deal. Do your homework and use Google Street-vue to do a "virtual drive-by" to see your next hotel and the surroundings. And call the hotel and ask "how old it is" and "when was the last facelift/remodel". Check here on TripAdvisor to see what others are saying and online at other sites to check out your next place to stay.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else where you and your money are appreciated.

Positives: Room was clean & people at the front desk were very nice. Convenient location off I-35.
Negatives: Neighborhood is pretty sketchy - Pawn Shop, EZ Loan, laundromat, liquor store, Dollar General, etc. in the nearest strip mall. We were worried that our car might be broken into -- We parked under a light in the parking lot & it was fine. Wifi in room didn't work, and AC was shorting out so we had to turn it completely off. Note to Verizon Wireless users - There is no service inside the room, but you can get one bar in the parking lot.
I was not familiar with the Executive Inn brand but it appears to be a low-budget chain -- Lower than LaQuinta or Holiday Inn Express. More like Motel 6 or Super 8. While the people at the desk were very friendly, I'd look for different lodgings on our next trip through.

On check-in, I was told there would be a $50.00 pet fee; something I was not told when making the on-line reservation. When I questioned it the clerk became very adversarial and told me it was all my fault and if I didn't like it I should talk to the manager the next day, which I did. I learned the reason for he clerk's rude attitude: She learned it from the manager ! He repeated the same story with the same combative attitude and acknowledged the the $50.00 was more important to him than his customer.

I have never experience such a lack of customer relations skills, nor such total indeference.

The bathroom was suspect having questionable stains (??) on the wall and mold on every seam of the grout.

I imagine that instead of cleaning the hot tub the just added more chlorine. I think the water is supposed to be blue, not cloudy green. I reeked of chlorine for some time.

There many better choices in New Braunfels at less cost.

Staff was nice at our late arrival, the location is perfect and the price was very affordable! The only down side is the hot tub isn't hot and the breakfast has a limited selection. As much money as you save and the kindness of the staff make up for the only 2 not so bad remarks! We will definitely come back.
