First, I did not see any ghost or experience any ghostly events. Unless you consider low water pressure, decades old and out of date rooms (and I don't mean the ones in the original section), or over priced rooms as ghostly events. I have always wanted to stay at the hotel and was quite excited to be able to do... More

We have traveled to San Antonio several times. One of our favorite hotels is the Menger. This is a beautiful historic hotel situated next to the Alamo. The victorian decor takes you back to a different era. Not to be missed is the pub where Teddy and his Rough Riders actually gathered. My only suggestion is if you want the... More

Located next to the historic Alamo, Menger is a beautiful victorian era hotel with a rich heritage. I liked the location, it was very close to the river walk and walking distance from almost all places of interest. The hotel definitely needs some renovation. Some of my major complains were 1. Noise isolation or rather lack of it 2. Cooling... More

Outstanding location across from the Alamo and a real link with history as it was established in 1856. Price was reasonable and our room had access to a patio that overlooked the main street. Definitely worth a repeat stay on our next trip to San Antonio.

When we first entered the hotel is it is very beautiful with lots of history and charm. But after you get past that the rooms were horrible. No control over heat or cool. Half the team was frozen and the other half so hot it was nearly unbearable. My room was a little warm but I opened the balcony door... More

Walking into the hotel you get a real sense of the history that has taken place outside, and inside, of the hotel. The staff is polite and extremely helpful. I stayed in a large room with no view, but it was clean, the bed was comfortable and my stay was overall pleasant. I did get to peek inside of the... More

First of all, the location of this hotel can't be beat. It's right next to the Alamo, and the RiverWalk is easily accessible from a few points within a 5 minute walk of the hotel. There's a large shopping centre right next door with a variety of restaurants and a movie theatre. I felt pretty safe there on my own,... More

My wife and I stay every Halloween - it's haunted! (j/k, just has the reputation). Room was small but nice. Right in middle of downtown San Antonio across from Alamo (had a room w/ view of Alamo Plaza). Lots of shopping and restaurants all within walking distance, including popular part of the Riverwalk. Bar is nice. Lots of displays of... More

The menger is very historic. That means it needs a renovation. The staff is great, the valet quick and the lobby/check in quick too. Facilities downstairs are very nice, the hallways are fine. The room is very small, old and the bathrooms are out of the 1970s at best. Water was scalding or freezing in the shower. Enough room for... More
