... had lived there for a spell, and so grabbing a selfie and sending it along with a "Hey, look where we are!" seemed like the neighbourly thing to do. It was a glorious sunny day at Solvang so we took breakfast at Paula's Pancake House, which was deliciously indecent, and grazed around for over an hour like two happy people with no particular place to go. After snapping some pix of the ferocious life-size wooden Vikings and caterwauling a few bars of "Clogging In The ...
... Whitley, Earl Thomas Conley, Cross Canadian Ragweed, and other songs I actually know the words to. Kalifornia has it's definite advantages, but has its eyes closed to the rest of the country. The conversations that are off limits in Kali are in the open here, everywhere. If you feel isolated in your concern about the welfare of this great land, if you feel surrounded by people devoid of patriotism; take a drive through the ...
Here we go again! For the last 5 years or so, Richard and I have taken turns choosing a destination for our summer location. This year was his choice and he wanted to go to Ireland. In researching this trip I decided to widen our itinerary to Great Britain (we'll visit England, Scotland, and Northern Ireland) and Ireland. The first half of the trip we'll sightsee via train and the second half we're boarding the Ruby Princess to take us to Scotland and ...

6) We bypassed long lines. Our itineraries included entrance to museums and attractions; we didn’t have to wait in line or pay admission fees. Instead, we walked right into the attraction. Some of our itineraries also included preferred seating.
7) We met new travelers. This type of travel gave us an opportunity to get to know others who shared our interest in China. ...
... like 12 or something like that. So there was Apple, GB, Jasna, Chris, Vynna, Me, Drew, Hessa, Roxi, Ice, Canuto, Ersie, Ron, George and Juan. (did I miss anyone?) Our first stop had to be McDonald's right? for breakfast and then another stop over at a McDonald's for lunch and then a bank just so we can deposit the money that we owed Chris for the room that he booked for us at the Hawthorne. I swear if we stopped by another McDonald's I would have thrown up...super ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Faust Hotel New Braunfels
We arrived at approx. 1400 hrs for a three day stay, the room was on the second floor and was hotter than hell, the window air conditioner sounded like a haybailer and would not possibly cool the room or allow a good nights sleep due to the racket. We advised the desk clerk (the manager was out) and she attempted to find an alternate room, however, the alternate was hotter than the first because it was unoccupied and therefore was not cooled (its A/C did not appear any better than the first!!) When asked, the manager was not expected back for the day, we decided the hotel was totally unacceptable and removed our luggage without touching anything in the room (or the alternate!!!) We advised the clerk we did not expect to be billed for this visit and began a search for another hotel (which was very difficult as it was a "holiday" weekend). Now, we have received a billing for the room!!! The hotel was called at 1600 hrs (on a friday) and was told the manager was gone for the day and was not expected back until Monday. This is no way to run a hotel!!!
I stayed at the Hotel Faust this past weekend (7/8-7/10), when a group of my friends and I decided to take our yearly trip to New Braunfels to go tubing and to check out all of the other fun things in town. I have always stayed in chain hotels like the Holiday Inn and have never stayed in a historical hotel or anything that didn't have a corporate logo.
I satyed here with my family during a summer trip. I thught it was an awesome place. Nice historical look, yet cozy. It is also haunted and I was lucky enough to experience the ghost first hand. A truly memorable experience.
Great place for WurstFest fun!
Stayed here during WurstFest and it was great! Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was funky like you expect in an old hotel. You don't stay at a hotel like the Faust to sit in the room and watch tv. Room was small but clean and bed was very comfortable. Shower was nice and hot. Great location for WurstFest! Recommend it anytime!
My then future husband and now husband stayed here before our wedding and after our wedding. it was amazing. The staff was great. one lady in particular, was so sweet. I would definitely go back.
Definately a nightmare!!
This was a very disappointing experience for me. This hotel is run down; the rooms are a mess and not taken care of, and the staff is rude and condescending. This is the place to go if you want to spend more for less and be treated like you are not worthy of such royalty. Terrible!
I stayed at the Faust Hotel in November 2004 and it was one of the worst hotel experiences of my lifetime. The hotel itself was disappointing, but it was the customer service, all the way up to the owner and general manager (Mr. Abbey), that was the true disappointment.
IT'S HAUNTED AND FUN:)
We had a blast at the Faust, stayed up all night looking for a ghost or something fooky, of course we didn't find or see anything, darn-it, maybe next time we will. We recommend staying there, and they have a bar.
