We checked into the Courtyard River Village not knowing what to expect, but knowing that we wanted a full-featured hotel, close to Gruene Hall, and close to the river so we could tube. We got all three in this hotel. It's a nice hotel (nothing elaborate), but definitely all the amenities of a hotel (as opposed to a B&B). It's situated about 40 - 50 yards from the Guadalupe river, so you can go to the rivers edge and swim, tube, or take a chartered boat ride. It's also within 5 miles or so from Gruene or Rock-R tube rentals on the Comal. Don't expect a resort atmosphere, but definitely fits the bill for a weekend trip to the Hill Country!

I really want to say this is the best hotel I've ever stayed in. The grounds are immaculate, besides having grounds and not just concrete! Balconies overlooking the river. I understand the pool is saltwater. The staff have has always been extremely courteous! Price a little steep but as long as it goes back into the excellent upkeep, I'll pay.

The hotel is just a few miles away from Schlitterbahn -- very convenient. There are also several restaurants within a short distance -- IHOP, Chili's, Sonic, to name a few.

The hotel has an outdoor pool and a small beach area that leads right into the river. We didn't go down there but could see it from our hotel room.

We had to change rooms a couple of times, which was a little frustrating. I booked two rooms and asked that they be next door to each other. The front desk person put us in two rooms that were technically next to each other, but the door to one of the rooms was around the corner. So we asked to move one room so that the doors were across from each other. Then later on we kept hearing this loud noise below our room and found out that the laundry facility was underneath our room and it would be running all night. No bueno. I asked to change rooms again and we got moved up to the 4th floor. At last we could finally settle in and relax.

The rooms had the world's tiniest hotel room fridges I've ever seen. You could barely fit anything in it, and it took forever for it to get cold. There's a microwave in the lobby by the front desk kiosks and "gift shop/snacks" area if you need it, but It would've been nice (and much more convenient) to have a microwave in the room.

The hotel had a limited selection of TV channels, and my son was upset that Disney Channel was not available. They did have Nickelodeon and the Cartoon Network -- but those channels switch to adult programming in the evenings. And since this hotel is on Central Time, those shows start even earlier. Something to think about, Courtyard management.

We didn't eat breakfast here and we only ordered a couple of sandwiches one night from the restaurant/bar area in the lobby. The sandwiches were underwhelming. We ordered reuben sandwiches -- not very difficult to make, but the server did not warm up the sauerkraut or drain it well (it came from a can) so when we got back to our rooms to eat, the bread became very soggy and almost inedible.

I don't know if I'd stay here again. We got a great rate for two rooms -- it would've been the same price for one room in San Antonio. I might check out reviews for other nearby hotels before staying here again.

Room Tip: Avoid Room 220 -- it's above the hotel laundry facility. Rooms ending in 01 through 17 have balc...

If you stay at Courtyards, you know exactly what to expect with the room. The location is great as it is on the river where it maintains at least a 15+ feet deep which was great for cannonballs off the pier for the kids and is located close to all the attractions. They have a "beach area" for the kids to play in at the river which is nice but small. The grounds are very well maintained with several different seating areas on the lawn, pool, and river. We did have to complain to the front desk and let them know we had four people three nights in a row before we were able to get more than two towels for our family of four when housekeeping made up the room so that was aggravating. The pool is clean and well maintained. They have live music on the weekends and happy hour specials. We would stay here again because of river access and location.

This is a good quality Courtyard property. The breakfast buffet was of good quality and reasonably priced and the prep staff warm and helpful. Check-in staff was friendly in a rather forced way, perhaps showing the wear and tear of a high traffic weekend (wedding plus lots of families with children). Also, we were rushed to check out--had trouble locating carts due to high volume of folks checking out at the same time and someone came by the room to ensure we were checking out on time. The recommendation to get a River view room is probably worth it. The balconies are pretty small and most face the pool so there isn't any privacy if you sit out. The salt water pool was pleasant and the rooms have plenty of storage and space to hang wet things. The river is nice to look at but we were expecting to be able to get in the river, swim, kayak, snorkel. This part of the Guadalupe is deep and more like a lake as you go around the bend. Lots of ski boats. Not safe to be in the water in anything slow going on the weekend (this confirmed by in-laws who live on this part of the river and own kayaks). So, generally a pleasant experience but we were baffled by the price which we assumed was based on access to the river. If you want to stand on the docks and fish or own a ski boat, this is definitely worth it. If you are expecting, like we did, that the price reflected easy access to the river, you'll be disappointed.
