***TERRIBLE, AWFUL, WASTE OF OUR MONEY HOTEL*** Spoiler: 1.If you want to drop your dollars for crummy service look no further! Come here! 2. Experienced another guest having a car accident in the parking garage upon departure because of poor design and lack of managerial oversight for the valets. Watch out! Spent almost as much as I would have at... More

This hotel was old but had been remodeled but was in a nice place. You can walk right out on the river walk from the hotel. The only problem was the elevators were very slow and had a lot of problems. The work out facility was also outdated and some of the machines were broken. The rooms were clean and... More

This hotel was within walking distance of The Alamo and other attractions. Rooms were ok, however for us having no carpet was an issue. Don't appreciate stepping onto a cold floor in the middle of the night. Also, rooms were a bit small. Staff was very nice! All in all, OK.

My fiancé and I ate at the bar and was served by Alex. He talked about sports with my fiancé and our food came out really good! My rib eye was perfectly cooked and my fiancés was as well. Big kudos to Chef Aaron. We will be back just because of last nights experience with the these two young men.

I had the opportunity to stay at this property on a recent trip to Texas and thought it was one of the nicer stays at a Holiday Inn. We had a great view from the room of the river walk and could access the river walk from the hotel, though you had to figure out the elevators to do so.... More

I know the Holiday Inn at Riverwalk was an older hotel. When I arrived I was very surprised to see a modern lobby and the rooms were very updated and very clean. The room was very spacious, everything was new. Floor was hard floors and not carpet. The bathroom looked completely new. The hotel is in a very good location... More

This Holiday Inn surpassed my expectations by leaps and bounds. Not only was the front desk and banquet staff amazing so was the building itself. The room was just amazing. Wood floors, a balcony facing the river and comfortable bedding made for a great stay my two nights in San Antonio, Tx.
