It's a lovely, historic hotel, and the location is terrific. The lobby, the bar, and the facilities are all beautifully done. Unfortunately, I had to change hotels after the first night, because it was so noisy that I could not sleep (admittedly, I am a very sensitive sleeper - if you are not, it would likely not be an issue...

The hotel is beautiful. It's a historic hotel and is decorated accordingly. When you enter, you immediately get a feel of a high class hotel. The service is great. They help you with everything. But... Once you get inside of your room, you are greatly disappointed. Everything is old and shabby: the carpets, the windows, the furniture - everything! The... More

The Menger Hotel is a great hotel to stay, the location is perfect, it is directly oppostie the Alamo and walking distance to the riverwalk restuarants and bars. The hotel itself is clean, rooms were perfect for a short stay, the historic charm of the hotel has been maintained which makes it that little bit more special. The staff were... More

I booked a room and ghost tour package, since I grew up in San Antonio but had never experienced the city as a tourist. We checked in (front staff very helpful), were given our keys, and were happy to find we were in the historic section. Went to our room and were even happier to see we had been given... More

We loved this hotel! I asked to stay in the historic section of the hotel and we were pleased to get a room with a balcony overlooking Alamo Plaza. The staff members were very friendly and accommodating. The location is excellent and is literally right next to the Alamo. The pool was great as well. Highly recommend!

This hotel has done a wonderful job in maintaining the historic charm of the property while giving the guest all the modern conveniences needed for a great stay. Walk the halls and look at all the old pictures of the place and get the feel for the old world charm that still lingers there.

Didn't stay in hotel but has brunch there. Hotel was old but very nice. Lobby and bathrooms: clean and orderly. Staff couldn't have been nicer. Restaurant in hotel - superb. Would definitely stay at Menger Hotel next time I was in San Antonio.

This is a beautiful old hotel that people need to quit applying modern standards to. If you want a Holiday Inn Express then go stay there. The creaky steps add the the wonderful ambiance of this classic place. It's location is perfect for anyone seeking to do all the touristy bits of San Antonio. The Alamo visitor's center is in...

Since I was going to be in San Antonio for a conference over the weekend of Halloween, the Manger only seemed appropriate as it has been rated in the top 10 most haunted! No, never saw any ghosts, but the stay itself was worthwhile anyhow. The service was good and the room was comfortable. Because of the age of the... More

I like old hotels. I like the Menger. Yes, the single queen bed room is small, but it's big enough, and the price is fair. Overall, the dimensions of the place are human-sized. Comfortable, not grand. It's quiet, the bed is comfortable, and the building is solid. The lobby is lovely, with some interesting art. The restaurant is beautiful, the... More
