4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A walk though the halls brings to life the history of the hotel, the city and the era when it all started. Great location to step out the door to the Alamo, Riverwalk and other family activities. Beds a little cozy but very comfortable. Staff very accommodating.

This hotel is literally beside the Alamo! Though I did not stay here, I am reviewing this for the lunch I had in their restaurant. It was a very good buffet considering the price of $17+. The hotel lobby itself was impressive and clean w/ a beautiful inner garden w/c could be viewed from the restsurant. Location is also great... More

This is my favorite hotel in San Antonio. My guests who prefer to stay in the River Walk area are always very pleased with this well-preserved historic hotel. The location is perfect as it sits across from the Alamo and other tourist attractions, the River Center Mall with an Imax theater and the River Walk entrance is a very short... More

Built around 1859, and added to over the years, this is a lovely hotel, close to The Alamo. It is almost a time-capsule for the past, with antiques and paintings on display in public areas and a bar which is a replica of that of the House of Lords at Westminster. We were not staying, but had lunch there; a... More

If you're looking for a great, historic hotel in downtown San Antonio, this is it! The Menger's location next to the Alamo is convenient to the river walk (a couple of blocks) and many other local attractions. Our room, although small, was comfortable and had balcony access, which was nice. Every member of the staff was very friendly and spoke... More

We only live 2 1/2 hour's from San Antonio but come at least once a month. We absolutely love staying at The Menger! We have 3 children and love having the large pool and hot tub! We love to get a bottle of wine and sit in the rocking chairs in the garden courtyard at night. I can't say enough... More

My stay at the Menger was very pleasant. Hotel staff was excellent and room was very clean and comfortable. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent as well. I enjoyed the outdoor court yard as I was able to enjoy a cigar.

This motel is very charming. Has a lot of history to it. My room was small. Bed was big, closet was big. Room was small. But it was just me so, I didn't need much room. Bathroom had just a small pedestal sink. No counter space, but did have a small shelf to place toiletries on. The staff was very... More

My husband and I decided to go to San Antonio for a stop over on our vacation. We found the Menger Hotel online through hotwire and was astonished when we got here. Everyone was very nice and the room, although small, was clean and the bed was comfortable. We are very pleased and will stay here again.

I was not happy with the fact that I paid about $30 more booking it with this website, once we checked in I found out that it would have been cheaper booking my stay with the hotel directly. I also was not impressed with the hotel, I felt like pictures were deceiving.
