  • The hotel rooms are absolutely gorgeous on the inside and out! Plenty of space within the unit, very nice employees. Overall an amazing hotel and I am definitely coming back.
  • The condo was very nice and clean inside. Great accommodations with plenty of fun things for the family to do. Couldn't use our outside patio set up due to a birds nest above it in the awning.
  • Very nice Worldmark by Wyndham resort. Has only 2 bedroom units. Second bedroom is upstairs. Has pool. Conveniently located within walking distance to historic downtown Gruene and river tubing.
  • World Mark new Braunfels is the definitive version of a Texas experience. I have stayed here 3 times and it is debatable to be my number one WorldMark. It's that good. The pool and exercise room are great and clean, combined with a friendly staff those factors make the experience better than the most hotels. The individual cottage houses are quaint and bleed Texas pride and tradition. The word panelling throws you into the heart of the vacation, with a unique loft build that will make you jealous you can't live here. With plenty of space and many different rooms, it is a great place to host a family getaway. The only downside is the occasional party you get next door and the long walk to the grills. If you get a lower house then you may be closer to the street than desired. However, hearing the music from the Gruene dance hall is something I personally enjoy. Overall this exceeded my expectations and had been home to some of the best family vacations.
  • Been here a few times now and have enjoyed it. Within walking distance to the Guadalupe River and Gruene. Close to Prince Solms Park and the Comal River as well.
