Love and want to support efforts to preserve historic buildings, particularly when open to the public. Preserving this former City Jail is a great example. Very well done! Couple short blocks from the Riverwalk, historic church with remains of Alamo hero's, reasonably priced, nice rooms, friendly staff ... but other than that ..... I've stayed a couple of times and...

I booked this place thinking I got the Holiday Inn Express closer to the River walk, this one was only 2 blocks away not to bad. it was a great place, What I didn't know was that it used to be an old jail in the 1800's apparently on the 3rd floor it was where the execution was being done.... More

We had a rather ordinary overnight stay at the Holiday Inn Express N-Riverwalk made EXTRAORDINARY by the service of your breakfast staff, Yvonne. She was VERY warm, friendly, helpful & witty, not to mention going completely out of her way to assist us with things totally unrelated to breakfast service. She was a joy and made our stay one to...

We didn't know about the hotel's history until we arrived. Very interesting! The hotel is ok for its age, but the parking situation is horrible. Although we paid the hotel to park, there are not many parking spaces in their parking lot. It was very hectic trying to get all of our items across the street and up the stairs... More

We stayed one night on our drive back to Dallas from South Padre Island. We chose this hotel due it price and proximity to the Riverwalk. Being from Dallas we are huge Dallas Cowboys fans and a pre-season game was showing the night of our stay. Although we've visited San Antonio several times we were unsure of where to watch... More

We came down to San Antonio to take our Daughter to Sea World and also enjoy the Riverwalk area. We enjoyed the history behind the building and how the staff seemed to enjoy it too!

My wife booked this for our trip to the Riverwalk and when we drove up I had my doubts. It's an old historic building that was once the Bexar county jail. There was nowhere to park (or so it seemed). First impressions aside, the staff was very friendly, the place was full of families, the rooms were pretty nice. It's... More

Excellent location (walking distance from Riverwalk and main attractions). Clean, good internet speed, very good fast breakfast. Definitely going back if again in San Antonio. The shuttle service is really convenient and parking is included.

We had a lovely time at this Holiday Inn. I'm a rewards member, so I always look for Holiday Inns when I travel. This one is about 5 blocks north of the Holiday Inn that's on the Riverwalk, making it 100s of dollars less and including breakfast. For the price difference, I'll walk to the riverwalk each day.
