I read the reviews and picked the Crockett over the Menger even though a friend said to stay at the Menger.
Upon entering the front desk staff was not friendly but not rude. They didn't tell me anything about the place i.e. free breakfast... etc.. Upon entering it is just an old building with no character. I love history and old buildings but this place was just boring.
The bar looks like an after thought. It also is not appealing to the eye. We had been told the Menger bar had much history and was beautiful with rich old wood. So we spent our cocktail time next door instead of at the Crockett.
The room was a typical hotel room, clean, average in size,
I had a corner view of the Alamo, a nice touch for a history buff. At 5 p.m. a loud speaker announced that it was closing. This was fine. However, Sunday morning at 7:45 a.m. that same loud speaker started announcing something. I found out later there was a benefit race going on. The announcements went on and on so I finally got up because I couldn't sleep.
The only good thing I can say about the Crockett was location to River Walk, a huge shopping and restaurant area worth checking out. Take a gondola ride when you arrive to see everything. It is 3 miles long with paths that get crowded on the weekend so the cruise around it is worth the money.
There are many hotels in the area. If I ever went back I would stay elsewhere.
