... the situation to the lady on the other end of the line (Lynne Meeks). It seems that the information she had did not match the information we had right there in black & white. OK so part of the problem was we had purchased a Rand McNally GPS first then returned it because we thought we had found something better. As it turned not, NO! So that's when we went back and made the big purchase of the Magellan GPS and a few other items, all on this receipt. Lynne pet ...
Together we have almost twenty years sober. But most of the time we act like children; clumsy, emotional and misunderstood. I am critical, and impulsive, she is trusting and reckless. Most of the last two days I've spent finding the balance between the child in me, and the adult. I tell her to slow down, stop playing, look straight ahead. Words that often put out the fire in us, but keep us safe. ...
Left for Brisbane, Australia today! 16 hour flight from Dallas to Brisbane non-stop. eek! Fortunately, I was extremely tired so I passed out right after dinner was served. Did I mention they gave us PJ's? Yep, PJ's!! You gotta love flying business class on ...

being in Texas, where people talk to you on the train or bus or in
line. When we said we were from Texas, their eyes would light up -
definitely more romantic than saying you were from New Jersey.
Driving a car from Scotland to south England was a little too much. Actually driving in UK was stressful - not good for our relationship. You absolutely need it for the Highlands of Scotland, but we could have used ...

I am grateful for the opportunity to be retired.
I am grateful for Forrest putting this trip together.

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.
