came to Texas to visit family for 10 days and needed to find a cheap, decent hotel near family and friends. though there are no food machines, laundry area or 24 hour coffee available the hotel was relatively quiet and peaceful for a good nights sleep most nights we were there. they have an amazing waffle maker, which shapes the waffles like the state of Texas that I found very amusing :) ... the coffee in the morning was terrible, but there are many stores close by (valeros just across the street) that served decent coffee and we were able to purchase small things we forgot to pack and snacks.
I do need to find out how to add points for our stay to our windham points card so we can stay cheaper next year. over all, for the price it was well worth it and we enjoyed our stay. thank you

Not an easy Hotel to find at night. You have to enter from a side street, not clearly marked. The Hotel is on the way to Schlitterbaun, several food places near by. Montana Mikes Steakhouse on property, we did not eat there, this trip. They have a hot breakfast of biscuits and gravy or waffles, no fruit, still not bad since it is part of the price. Don't expect much, and you won't be dissapointed. Bed was soft, pillows were flat, easch bed had three pillows on them. Older property, ok for the money. Nothing special.

I went with some friends to New Braunfels to experience tubing and we picked the HoJo being that we were only staying one night.

The Good:
Bed is comfortable.
Conveniently located near main drag, restaurants, etc.
AC worked great.
Showers have hot water.

The Bad:
It's an older property...it is what it is.
Attracts younger crowds and large groups.
Breakfast was sub par. (Waffle maker, powered juices, stale bisquits and bagels but there's fruit) Better off going to McDonald's.

If you are looking for luxury, bell hops, room service, romance, or VIP treatment, then this isn't the place for you. Good for one night of sleep...nothing more, nothing less.

The hotel was very dirty and the property looks very run down. When you enter the room, you will instantly smell a musty, damp, humid smell. You will not be able to sleep. When we checked in the guy at the front desk began stalking us at the side of the hotel where we parked our car and were removing luggage. We did not even eat the breakfast there, and it is not a very comfortable place to stay in terms of security and cleanliness. Do not stay>> Save your money to spend at another, cleaner hotel!!

Room Tip: Do not book online make sure you check out the rooms before you pay!!!

It is disappointing to learnd that you didn't have pleasant experience with us. We strive to make our guests stay best possible. I assure you that the smell issue being handled appropriately. As for the desk clerk, they are trained to walk around the property time to time for our guest safety. The clerk was making usual walk and not stalking you. There was need for you to feel that way. Thank you for your time and review.

We checked and went around to the side entrance which the staff said was closer to our room. Upon entering we (my wife and I along with two children) were immediately blasted with the stench of marijuana smoke that filled the stairwell and the second floor.Once we were settled in my wife called the front desk attendant who claimed there was nothing he could as he was not able to search rooms. The room was musty and had not been cleaned very well after the previous occupants. My 13 year old daughter found a pubic hair on the towel hanging in the latrine. At this point I went and requested new ones and after fumbling around in a closet the guy at the desk gave me the last three he could find. This was just the first three hours and I could go on about the next day and a half but I think y'all get the point. I will never stay at a Howard Johnson again as long as I live. This place was a dump all the way around. The guy at the desk overnight is extremely rude and seems content to sit there and collect money for having a hotel near multiple tourist destinations because he knows unsuspecting people will wander in no matter what. There is a microtel right across the street that I will utilize for all my future travels to New Braunfels. Thanks for nothing Howard Johnsons.

I remember you stayed in room 211 and I did go check the hallway to see if there is any weed smoke and did not smell anything. We take pride in our property and take smoking illigal substance very seriously. We strive day in and day out to make our guests stay the best possible. But I am surprised to see the review coming from you who discriminated me after telling you that you will be charged for the damages at the pool area which included missing chair, broken umbrella, broken emergency phone, two lounge chair in the pool along with other guests bar b q pit!!, Which we had on our securuty carmera. nontheless, we appreciate our guests time to review our hotel, I thaught our future guests should know what you can do to public/private places like hotels!
