“Liked the Drury...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2005

We stayed at the Drury Inn on the Riverwalk for two nights the second week in July. There were three adults and two teens in a double queen room. The room was adequate in size for the time we spent in it. It was a very tastefully decorated room. The best thing I liked about the rooms were the very comfortable beds. A small negative is that the only place to have privacy to change clothes when you are sharing with other people is the tiny bathtub-toilet room. The counter top with sink is on the outside in the room which is good when sharing a bathroom with others. But overall the rooms were very nice and comfortable. I read a review from someone that stayed a few days before we did and commented on the long lines at breakfast and afternoon snacks and drinks and the noisy crowded pool. Yes I did experience this too. But if you come down to breakfast before 8am there was no line and you got a place to sit. Then it would get very crowded about 8:30am until brk. was over. Same with snacks and drinks, get there before 4pm. if you don't want to stand in line for drinks and snacks, but don't plan your day around that. The snacks are popcorn, chips, with cheese sauce and salsa and weak alcoholic drinks and soda from dispensers. At night the pool on the roof did have lots of kids in it, but it is a nice rooftop to lounge at the tables and chairs and look at the city lights and buildings around you. There is a 10.00 a day parking fee for the garage. I liked how you could enter the parking garage from the floor your room is on and park on the same level as your room which was convenient. I got the special SAVE rate which was good price for a room on the Riverwalk, 99.00 Sun. night and 119.00 for a Mon. night. The location is great, elevator goes right down to the Riverwalk. Also if you want an inexpensive meal and don't want to eat in their restaurant (Texas Land and Cattle Co.) there is a Subway sandwich place and a small deli-grocery shop around the corner from the front doors street level.

This place was so nice. The room was beautiful, clean and spacious. The location was perfect-right on the Riverwalk. The breakfast was wonderful and the onsite restaurant was very good too! I can't imagine ever staying anywhere else while in San Antonio.

The room was clean and spacious. The breakfast was hot and much better than at most. We received 2 free drinks and popcorn in our room, as well as, free long distance. They also served free drinks and food in the evening. The "extras" made our stay enjoyable and the staff was extremely friendly. Also, the location is very convenient on the riverwalk.

We stayed at this hotel after reading reviews of it here. Thank you! I loved it for my famiy. The manager's reception was great with free drinks and snacks. Our room was awesome, with a comfy king bed in a bedroom and a fine sofa bed in another room for the kids. Separate TV's were great! The breakfast was one of the best we've had for free in a hotel. We got the room for a steal (with a coupon from the paper) compared to anything else on the riverwalk. We would love to go back again!

After reading the raving reviews about this place, my husband and I decided to stay here for 2 nights over the 4th of July weekend.
The room was very clean and the location was excellent, but if you want a nice, adult relaxing weekend, this is not the place to stay.

We tried the cocktail hour the first night we were there. You had to wait in a long line to end up with mediocre wine served in a plastic cup. Although there was a nice seating area, most of the tables were full, and those that had been vacated were piled with empty cups and dishes. The tables were also dirty and there was absolutely no ambience. Lots of kids running around getting sodas from the fountain dispensers, etc. We decided not to do the cocktail thing again and left before we even finished half of our drinks.

The next morning, we thought we would try the free breakfast. Same story. Long lines and no place to sit. We left and went somewhere else where we could sit down and be served.

The pool and jacuzzi on the roof are open until 10:00 PM. After a very hot day, we thought it would be nice to go up there and cool off and relax before the pool closed (about 9:30). No such luck. The place was jammed with kids running, yelling, splashing and doing cannonball dives. The jacuzzi was full of kids, too. We never had a chance to get in the pool or the jacuzzi and it was definitely not peaceful. We travel quite a bit and have stayed in many hotels with pools. I have never seen a pool so packed with kids this late in the evening. None of the parents were interested in getting the kids to quiet down. I think they were all trying to wear them out before bedtime.

Maybe it was overly crowded because it was the 4th of July weekend. I'd say if you are on a budget and have a family traveling with you, this is a good place to go. If you are an adult couple with no kids and want a peaceful weekend on the Riverwalk, spend the extra money and go to another hotel.

My husband and i came for a night.......the outside at first made me think of "old". When we stepped inside though....wow......newly renovated. The dining area was great........free beverages and snacks. Free breakfast.....just really nice.......over looking the river. You can catch a trolley and/or bus just outside the hotel. Our room was wonderful....the bed was the most comfortable i have experience in a hotel. The room was very clean and modernized. We had free internet access. We had one hour of free local phone calling which we didn't use. The A/C worked well beyond perfection.......it was 100 degrees outside. I will definitely stay here next time and it's so convenient to the riverwalk! Enjoy!

We reserved two two-room suites across the hall from each other for a Friday - Sunday "girls weekend" for 12. The rooms were fabulous and very spacious - the balcony in each room was wonderful as well. I had requested that balloons be placed in each of the suites in our theme colors - I was delighted to see 12 balloons in each room of hot pink, black, and silver ! The suites offered a long countertop equiped with extensive cabinetry, a microwave and mini-frig. We were lucky to have incredible weather the entire weekend and spent all of Saturday lounging at the spacious and beautifully designed pool area on the roof. Many girls in our party were excited to see the great breakfast offered daily. The hotel was very close to everything - Dicks Last Resort as well as Howl at the Moon among other restaurants and night clubs. The hotel, in my opinion is a great value for the nightly charge and exceeded ALL expectations. One recommendation however, would not be to order to-go food from the Texas Land and Cattle on sight...we were dissapointed in the quality...
