The Faust Hotel
Travel Blogs from New Braunfels
Left hotel after breakfast at 10 and set TomTom for San Antonio but on minor roads again. Pass through lots of small towns, a lot of the shops on the main streets seem closed - wonder where all these people work, on the land or oil fields I guess. More wind farms on the hills again, Peter gets quite excited when he gets a bend in the road as it's so unusual - thank goodness for the cruise control. Stop for petrol at Ozona, it's still $3.34 a gallon (although US gallons are ...
Catrina is a precious treasure to us. She is a beautiful example of a woman that seeks the Lord. She is always moving toward being the very best person she can be. She has raised three fabulous children that today love the Lord. She has created a home that is not only one of beauty, but it is one that feels safe and secure to those who enter. She ...
We have been seeing these gi-normous cactus' since we came into Texas. Some of them are as big as a minivan. Many are more than 6 feet tall. Many times we have seen what appears to be a "cactus farm". They grow like weeds here.
When they say everything is bigger in Texas--It didn't dawn on us that meant cactus.

... limited displays. There is a pretty little courtyard and then you are done. Bottom line… we were glad it was free, because there is not much to see. We wish there had been more information about what happened here.
The Riverwalk is only about 2 blocks away from the Alamo, so we decide to walk down and have lunch on the Riverwalk. This area is an area 15 miles long that has shops and restaurants to enjoy. The shops were fun ...
... United Arab Emirates. I stopped in Dubai for a day or two both inbound and outbound during trips to the Middle East in 2009 and 2010. What a beautiful place; I want Rosalind to see it. But we quickly talked our way out of going (too hot in July, more frequent flier miles and hotel points, peak tourist season, etc...).
So we decided on China (another place on our bucket ...

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.
