The location of the historic Crockett is the best thing about this hotel. You are right across the street from the Alamo, across the street from the huge mall (behind the steak house sign) and a block or two from the Riverwalk.
The staff was wonderful including one gentleman who always remembered my name when he saw me (and I have a very hard last name for most people to pronounce, I was very impressed by this!).
The hotel was clean. Some may find the lack of heavy curtains on the windows allowing too much sun in the room (they have a thick wooden blinds); also the bed was a little too firm for me, but I did get used to it. Otherwise, the room was always very clean as well as the bathroom.
There was no microwave or small refrigerator in the room--I don't know if the Crockett has rooms like that but I did not request one. As I was out touring most of the day and night, it did not prove to be a big issue for me. There were no laundry facilities, but again I cleaned my clothes with some soap and water and allowed them to dry over the bathtub. It worked O.K. The outside pool was small in size, but still OK with only 2 or 3 people in it.
I read complaints about the breakfast - it was the same every morning but it was included in my price and it was a good start every day. Just loved the Texas shaped waffles, which you make yourself! I looked forward to my Texas waffle every morning.
That being said, I found this a great hotel for my purposes of touring the Alamo and downtown San Antonio. There may be more luxurious hotels with more and larger facilites, but this was just great for me.
I would recommend this to friends visiting San Antonio and would definitely stay again.
