After randomly finding this place after trying to find a jet ski to rent last minute, we quickly found the staff is extremely welcoming and friendly. Any questions we had were answered, any needs we had were met, the food was amazing, the atmosphere was cozy and one of a kind. I plan on returning more than just once.

A last-minute, spontaneous decision turned out quite well. Spoke directly with Georg on the phone (i'm not a reservations service type). He confirmed my room and the deposit/confirmation process went smoothly. James met me at the office for early arrival, showed me around the marina and got me settled in a nicely-appointed room. Spent a delightful Friday evening watching the sunset from the deck. Up early and rented a pontoon boat for tour of the lake. Luke checked me out on the particulars (it had been a while) and off I went to explore. Honda 90 performed perfectly. Dallas and Luke met me at the dock to secure the craft as I came in. Gave me a 9 on 10 scale for the landing. Completed the paperwork, had a pleasant time talking afterward. Observed them rescue a guest boater whose engine had failed. The folks seemed most grateful for the tow. Spent the afternoon visiting nearby Kingsland and boat shopping on a steady wi-fi. Watched a Netflix movie and turned in for another good night's sleep. I will return!

The folks at LBJ Marina were very accommodating and helpful. The boat we rented had some engine issues. Rather than being disappointed and offering a refund, they were able to find another boat for us even though it was a holiday weekend. They threw in the towable free and were very nice.

 Great experience

Review by Procrastinator  on 9/7/20 10:38 AM

With all other places booked, we rented from LBJ Resort & Marina as a last resort. We would’ve been better off not going to the lake at all. Not only was the young staff very stand-offish when we arrived, but the boat itself was in terrible condition. The seats were ripped, the engine made strange sputtering noises when in neutral, and the boat didn’t even have an anchor. We were about 20 minutes away from the dock when we realized the anchor was missing. When we called the marina to try and locate it, they told us to look underneath all of the seats. After an unsuccessful search, we found no anchor and were told to return to the dock for one. When I realized that they charged us OVER $100 for gas, I asked if there would be any chance of a refund for the gas used to return for the anchor. I was then informed that the guy who gave us an anchor apparently made a mistake because THEY DO NOT PUT ANCHORS ON THEIR BOATS unless you purchase one. Completely incompetent staff, overpriced rentals, and subpar equipment at best. I paid $650 for a rental that was only supposed to be $400.

 Pleasant and professional

Review by Rene on 9/6/20 9:13 AM

Like most procrastinators I waited till the day prior to my trip before attempting book a boat and jet ski for the entire day. I called every rental place in the area that my Google search came back with, and found nothing available. The last number I dialed was Lake LBJ Resort & Marina, who fortunately had exactly what I was looking for. The call from their staff was pleasant, respectful, and informative. When we arrived to pick up the rentals, I was surprised to see that the boats were not the latest and greatest, top of tier, and newest of the bunch, but this was a last-minute rental on a busy Saturday. This was the last boat available boat anywhere on the lake. Needless to say, the day went off without a hitch, and my friends and family had an excellent day at HSB. Reading a couple of comments and feedback like “Piece of Junk,” makes me wonder if that reviewer was also a last-minute renter during a busy weekend. I cannot speak to their issue with the boat having mechanical issues, but I can confirm that Lake LBJ Resort & Marina are NOT criminals. Aside from my last-minute rental, the team was professional and pleasant. I will rent from them again, but way in advance for one of their nicer boats I saw sitting there. Pros: Pleasant, professional, easy to use web app, and excellent communication during the rental processes. Cons: Maybe a little pricy for the boat that I rented, but worth it for the time I had.

 Piece of junk

Review by Unhappy  on 9/5/20 10:30 PM

Paid premium price for a piece of junk!! Had a 40 th Birthday and rented a boat for a7 hour day on the lake and was told the boat we were supposed to be renting was having engine problems so they substituted one in pitiful condition. Then we’re told they would discount the rental because they couldn’t provide the correct boat Didn’t happen these guys are crooks!!!

 Easy and reasonable

Review by Amateur on 8/22/20 7:56 AM

We researched other marinas in the area. LBJ has the best prices, newer boats and on-line reservations made the process so easy! Check in went smooth, staff friendly and made sure we understood all about boat and directions before we left the dock. Would definitely use them again!

 Pontoon rental

Review by Chuck on 8/22/20 7:52 AM

Had a a very enjoyable rental. The boat we had reserved was not returned in time , so we were upgraded to a bigger boat.

 Awesome Experience

Review by Karen  on 8/11/20 6:26 AM

We can’t say enough good things about renting boats from this facility! The boat was ready when we got there, it was super clean and any requests we had was taken care of. We rented 3 days. Two pontoon boats and two wave riders. Just made the vacation exactly what we had hoped for. The owner went out of His way to make sure we were happy and we had the right equipment! Would rent here again in a minute!

 Great

Review by Ozbren on 8/11/20 2:05 AM

Lake LBJ Resort and Marina made renting a pontoon so easy! Their website is user friendly and showed me what was available for the date and time we wanted. Once there, signing the paperwork and getting the boat was quick, we were on the water in no time!

 Rented pontoon

Review by mel on 8/10/20 7:51 AM

Called and was told to go online. Reservation process very easy! Called a couple of other places. One had a minimum hours and the other was unresponsive to the contact form, email and voice mail. This place was a bit out of the way, but OK. I wouldn't call it a "resort" but we only were renting a boat for 2 hours. Can't say young staff practiced COVID precautions - sign on door said only 2 people at a time and if you have fever don't come in, but no masks and really doubt they disinfected boat at all given the quick turn around. Otherwise, everything was fine and we enjoyed our outing. One thing was the cost of a gallon of gas - they filled it after we got back - was $5+ and the amount of gas we supposedly used (8 gallons) was very questionable. Just saw the charge on our credit card bill, so just wrote it off.

 Rented a Tritoon

Review by LisaM on 8/3/20 9:20 AM

The staff was very professional and polite to us. We are moving to this area in a few months and will definitely rent from them again!

Review by Satisfied Customer  on 8/2/20 9:36 AM

We rented a pontoon for the evening. It was a very nice outing. The staff was friendly. The prior people who rented came back a few minutes late but the staff quickly turned the boat to get us on our way only 15 minutes late

 Great rental

Review by LA on 7/31/20 12:54 PM

We rented a ski boat from Lake LBJ Resort & Marina on two separate days this July. They were one of the few places that allowed us to rent the boat without also paying for a captain. The boat was not new, but it was perfect for teaching our kids how to water ski. We had so much fun the first time that we decided to rent the boat again the next week. When we arrived for the second rental, they upgraded us to another boat (I think the other boat was being worked on) which was even smoother than the first boat! Great way to get in some fun family time while also socially distancing. We will definitely rent from them again.

 Would rent again

Review by JC on 7/29/20 8:53 AM

Rented a pontoon for 8 people. We are new to boat renting and the staff was very helpful in showing us what to do and where to go for tubing, cruising and swimming. Enjoyed our 4 hours.

Review by J on 7/25/20 11:39 AM

We rented the pontoon with the 135hp and it wouldn’t go over 10mph. We couldn’t even pull kids on the tube. Not worth the money.

Good boat and good folks. Rented on 07/16/2020. Only problem was the “timing”. The party that had our boat out just before our time slot got a late start so they came back in late. Will definitely rent again.

Review by DO NOT RENT FROM THIS PLACE on 7/24/20 1:24 AM

When we booked, the listing said "BRAND NEW PONTOON BOAT"....BEWARE! We got a 2016 used boat. We did not complain at first, but upon taking the boat out, an hour into the ride it started to sink. We made it back and told the owner and he completely flew off the handle. He yelled and screamed and didn't even listen to what we had problems with on the boat. We asked him to calm down and not yell around our small children after he followed us outside, but he continued to scream in our faces. He said we would get a full refund after I argued that half wasn't good enough. We have only received 3/4 as of now...this owner scared our children to death and definitely made us all uncomfortable....even his own staff. RENT FROM ANYWHERE BUT HERE! We are business owners ourselves and this is unacceptable and very disappointing! This guy is hot headed and out of control!
