We found this charming inn listed in Lonely Planet and boy, are we glad we did! The place oozes authenticity, good service and friendliness. It is perfectly located right on the Riverwalk - really, RIGHT ON the Riverwalk - on a centrally-located but quiet street, so you're right downtown in an island of tranquility. The atmosphere is relaxed, the rooms... More

When we pulled in the parking lot, my husband was a little skeptical. But don't judge a book by its cover. It's a quaint older house, tastefully decorated and surprisingly inviting. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms have unbelievable views of San Antonio and the Riverwalk. When I read the description I thought this Inn was located a... More

I wanted a bed and breakfast experience, as I celebrated my birthday in San Antonio last weekend, and I was very happy with my experience at Inn on the Riverwalk. It's in a quiet area right on the river, close to the King William District, and only a 10 minute walk along the river to the bustling restaurants and shops,... More

This place is awesome! A bed and breakfast with a relaxed and country feel--but right in the heart of the city! The innkeeper/owner was the nicest and coolest host that anybody could wish for. He had great suggestions for local eating and sightseeing. His positive attitude and great enthusiasm for not only the inn, but just life itself, was infectious.... More

I am actually giving it 4.5 stars, rounding up. The location, the hospitality and the breakfast deserve 5 stars. It's located right on the Riverwalk, but on the quiet portion of the river, very near the beautiful King William Historic District. We preferred to stay in a place where we could walk to all the attractions on the Riverwalk, including... More

We've stayed at other B&B's and this one is unique. If you demand a luxurious, spacious mansion with perfectly appointed rooms, a four star breakfast and service you will not enjoy it here. But we DID and can't wait to go back. It's in a great location, the staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable. We met the... More

My partner and I planned a getaway wedding at the Inn on The Riverwalk in San Antonio, TX. The entire event was planned over the phone from Fort Worth, so I was a little concerned with setting it all up site unseen. The staff and the Inn were just fantastic to work with, they took care of all the details... More

This little bed and breakfast is a nice little addition to the usual mass marketed hotels in the busy lands of tourism. We were in San Antonio to watch an USAF basic training graduation. Showed up on a Wednesday evening. I don't think there was another soul in that whole house. Left on a Sunday, and the last 2 nights... More

Our bed was great. The linens were very soft. The bathroom needs a serious update. The water barely spritzed on you and the soap and shampoo left for you in the bathroom were not a good quality. I was very disappointed in breakfast. I was expecting something fabulous (because it a bed and breakfast) but there was yogurt sitting on... More

My son is in the Military, so we planned a week long visit with him in San Antonio. I thought it would be nice to stay at a B&B mid week. I had never stayed at a B&B, and thought this would be a great way to experience San Antonio. When we arrived in San Antonio, we stayed at a... More

I am terribly sorry for your unfortunate experience with our room #27. I want to thank you for your review, based on your review you are absolutely right that room is of major need of rehab. Myself and the owner have taken that particular room "out of service" for the next several months to bring up to reasonable standards of... More
