We stayed here for 4 nights and had a great stay. It wasn't easy to find a place near Riverwalk that was affordable, and this worked for us. Front desk staff is amazing considering their hard job. We were on 5th floor, 2 beds, and the heating unit was above our bed (building used to be a jail). I asked... More

Quiet dining and excellent friendly service from waitress Rebecca. Chef Aaron prepared an appetizer of chicken fajita nachos. The main course was a rib eye steak and a grilled chicken buffalo salad. The food presentation was very pleasing, portions were perfect, and the food was delicious! I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Loved our stay here. Excellent staff, didn't break the bank, great breakfast, wi-fi, just a couple blocks from the riverwalk. Our vehicle was parked the whole time we stayed. This hotel use to be a jailhouse. Our room was small, but hey, it used to be a jail cell. Just loved staying here.

Booked this location because of proximity to Majestic Theater and Market Square. Was a easy 10 minute walk each way. Hotel was clean and comfortable. I booked a 2 queen room and it met expectations, it was very basic. Did not use pool. On weekends parking is free with a short walk around the corner. It was a good value.

Great price but you sometimes get what you pay for. We recently stayed here and planned to stay 2 nights but checked out after 1 night. The staff was extremely pleasant and hard working but that couldn't make up for the fact that both of our rooms smelled moldy and unpleasant. We couldn't get the a/c unit to work in... More

The rooms were big and beds were comfortable. Friendly staff . What i didnt like was the parking and breakfast. Parking lot is small and all cars are cramped up not worth the $10 parking fee. Breakfast was not that great. So for me it's an average hotel. I didn't know this hotel was an old jail (last execution was... More

We booked for couple days in San Antonio for our wedding anniversary. The location is great! However, there's a terrible mildew issue, which was unavoidable and most pleasant in our room. We were also accidentally "checked out" a night early, which caused frustration on our part and a little confusion on theirs'. The situation was remedied, but definitely tainted out... More

My wife and I decided to try a Christmas stay-cation in downtown San Antonio this year, and we wanted to spend two days at the same hotel. We chose the Holiday Inn Express North Riverwalk because it's located perfectly between our favorite sites in the center of downtown. It was also a good deal for the quality of the facility,...

We spent 2 nights staying at this hotel and found it to be convenient since we wanted to be near the riverwalk but didn't want to pay for one that was directly on the riverwalk.
