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.

Don't go when it's cold applies to all of San Antonio but to the Crockett Hotel in particular. The heating system is just not up to it. It was noisy - ("wake you up" noisy), relatively ineffective (I kept a doggy bag from Boudro's on the window sill one night and it stayed cold) and did not extend to the bathroom, which at least had some heat lamps. Other than that, it has a modern lobby area, a reasonably good bar, and breakfast. I don't think it's a full-service restaurant - I never saw them serving anything other than breakfast, but the breakfast was okay - mostly breads and pastries. We typically went over to Schilo's Deli or the Menger for breakfast. The room itself was fine - a reasonable size, everything we needed. Not much of a view, but that wasn't a criteria.

We held our company retreat at The Crockett for 2 days. We had a small group (10), but the boardroom was perfect for our needs. Our group had the 2 rooms that adjoin to the boardroom as well, which was very convenient. Check-in was quick and efficient. Everything was ready to go when we finished our meeting. We had a room overlooking the grounds of the Alamo. Compared to others in our group, our room was a tad smaller, but still more than enough for our purposes. We were street side and it was very quiet. We went to Ernie's (hotel's bar) before dinner. Great happy hour specials! Heather, the bartender, was great. Very friendly and had our orders down in no time. We enjoyed Ernie's so much that we changed our after dinner plans to return there instead. The staff was friendly. Breakfast was great. Breakfast tacos and Texas shaped waffles...what more could you want from a hotel next door to the Alamo? Great job Crockett Hotel!!

Room Tip: Ask for an outside room with a view of the Alamo grounds

Very nice hotel across the street from the Alamo. Check-in and check-out was quick and painless. Super nice ladies at the front desk. Best of all we received a nice up-grade to a large junior suite with the rounded windows facing the Menger Hotel. The complimentary breakfast had a nice selection of rolls, hard boiled and scrambled eggs, fruit, make your own Texas shaped waffles and more.

Ernie's bar on the first floor has an extremely reasonable happy hour (cheap!) and the popcorn is constantly popping.

Great location just a short walk from the River. Parking is $20.00 per day. Your can pay less a block or so away but we found the parking at the hotel to be very convenient.

Room Tip: Just be nice and see what happens.

The location was excellent, didn't need to use the car, The Alamo was across the road and the riverwalk was either through the shopping centre or two blocks away. Hotel staff very distant but helpful when asked. Breakfast was very average, scrambled egg varied in quality, no fruit. The room was large and comfortable, the partner hotel was almost empty when we went to try the restaurant one night. There is a car park fee of $20 per day not shown on the price detail.
The Alamo was lovely with a lot of history and the gardens were quiet and serene, the Riverwalk was great during the day and changed again in the evening when everyone came out to dine. there were fish, steal Irish, Mexican restaurants along both sides. The cathedral was beautiful but the market area was more for Mexicans with there arts and crafts.
