“Very nice and good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

When we booked the Crockett, I was a little worried that it would be like other Historic hotels we've stayed at, small, cold and dingy. It was pleasantly not! The downstairs atrium has the old world charm and the rooms have the necessary modern amenities, including insulation from the cold outside! This hotel is literally directly behind the Alamo and a quick 3-4 minute walk down to the river walk. Good hotel, great location.

Very nice find! Excellent location to downtown, river walk and the Alamo. Perhaps my only complaints are the uncomfortable bed mattresses, which are too firm, and hurt my back the next day, as well as the heater that, when it kicked on, it could wake up the dead! Too loud, perhaps broken. Otherwise, it is a very nice hotel, and I will definitely be back to stay since it is so close to everything I like in downtown SA.

Room Tip: Get a King sized room, as the queen sized rooms are perhaps too small for most people.

Stayed at the Crockett thinking that it was within walking distance of the ATT Center but it is actually three miles away. The location is excellent and is close to interstate access and right across from the Alamo.

The staff was friendly and helpful but short since it was Christmas which was understandable. The room itself is dated and plain but ample room for two people. I enjoy staying in Historic Hotels, the Chase Park Plaza in St Louis is one of my favorites, but the Crockett could use a face lift to garner 5 stars.

I've stayed at this hotel twice, it's a good balance between location (convenient to several places by car, walking, or bus) and price. It's a very clean place.

Good Continental Breakfast!

Very Friendly and Responsive Staff

We enjoyed our stay at the Crockett especially with a view of the back of The Alamo. The room was spacious with a desk and chair. The toiletries were nicer than most hotels. The make your own breakfast tacos were exactly what I make at home:eggs, sausage, cheese and salsa. We paid a very good AAA rate which was an excellent value. There is a computer and printer in the lobby, and the RIverwalk Center ( shopping and food court) and the Riverwalk are a long block away. I rate this excellent because of the value of the room combined with the price and location. It may not be a luxury hotel but you are not paying luxury prices but it is first class and very clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I will stay again.

It was a perfect birthday getaway. I go to San Antonio 2-3 times a year and I truly enjoy staying in the Crockett. The rooms that overlook the Alamo are so wonderful. The breakfast is nice. The ease of being able to walk to some of the biggest attractions is also a big plus. The staff is beyond friendly. The rooms were warm and a perfect place to relax after walking around in the cold winter air. The bed was comfortable, I only wish there were more pillows. Clean and pretty all around.

Right behind the Alamo, you can't go wrong.

The Crockett Hotel is one of my favorites in San Antonio. It is a place I often use to get away alone or if I'm celebrating in the downtown SA area. Over the years, I've stayed there many time. I actually spent the last two New Year's Eves there and had a blast. One thing I love about the Crockett is the perfect location. It is near everything you would ever need downtown, meaning, you don't need to rent a car if you will be staying in the DT area.Good restaurants, bars and clubs, shopping, and of course, sight seeing - it's all within walking distance. The hotel also has an in-house neighborhood bar called "Ernie's" which is fun. Lots of tourists and locals mix and mingle there.

For me, it's a cozy hotel which is super clean and inviting. The price is is great for the value and service they offer is outstanding. As an added bonus, breakfast is complimentary with your room stay...can't beat that!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing The Alamo, good people-watching.
