“Great location and value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

We stayed there for five nights over NY, location is very good to get to river walk, downtown, etc. very responsive service desc and everyone else there! However, it reminds me more European hotels, when talking about room sizes, quality of fixtures and heating system, that is quite loud. Hot breakfast is great addition, if I could give four and a half stars, I would. Overall, very good value.

Stayed during the Alamo Bowl and New year's Eve. The hotel was full but service never wavered. Our only negatives were service at Earnie's Bar.. No table service and the sole bartender was swamped, and the higher the floor the weaker the free wifi reception.

The location is central to everything we wanted to see. No need for a car. The staff's recommendation to use the VIA system (bus) was spot on. No $20.00/night parking fee (it's everywhere in downtown) The stop was an easy walk. To and from airport $1.20. Other fares $0.60.

While I can't speak for all, our room came with a fridge and a HDTV with a great selection of channels. While not used the "Crockett" bath robes were a nice touch. The complimentary breakfast was typical with great uoumake waffles and the San Antonio staple of breakfast tacos.

Room Tip: There's a great view of the Alamo (I think odd number rooms) The higher the better.

The Crockett Hotel is a historic hotel located in the best part of San Antonio. The rooms are large and the amenities were good. The staff was extremelly helpful and the rate included a hot breakfast that was good.

There is a bar that is connected and had reasonable prices and a good bartender. We were on the third floor and there was a little bit of outside noise but it wasn't disruptive.

The location cannot be beat though. You can walk everywhere from here, the riverwalk is two blocks, the alamo and mall are across the street, and the alamo dome is 10-15 minutes away. The next time we return to San Antonio we will stay here again.

Room Tip: I would ask for an upper floor

When we booked the Crockett, I was a little worried that it would be like other Historic hotels we've stayed at, small, cold and dingy. It was pleasantly not! The downstairs atrium has the old world charm and the rooms have the necessary modern amenities, including insulation from the cold outside! This hotel is literally directly behind the Alamo and a quick 3-4 minute walk down to the river walk. Good hotel, great location.

Very nice find! Excellent location to downtown, river walk and the Alamo. Perhaps my only complaints are the uncomfortable bed mattresses, which are too firm, and hurt my back the next day, as well as the heater that, when it kicked on, it could wake up the dead! Too loud, perhaps broken. Otherwise, it is a very nice hotel, and I will definitely be back to stay since it is so close to everything I like in downtown SA.

Room Tip: Get a King sized room, as the queen sized rooms are perhaps too small for most people.

Stayed at the Crockett thinking that it was within walking distance of the ATT Center but it is actually three miles away. The location is excellent and is close to interstate access and right across from the Alamo.

The staff was friendly and helpful but short since it was Christmas which was understandable. The room itself is dated and plain but ample room for two people. I enjoy staying in Historic Hotels, the Chase Park Plaza in St Louis is one of my favorites, but the Crockett could use a face lift to garner 5 stars.

I've stayed at this hotel twice, it's a good balance between location (convenient to several places by car, walking, or bus) and price. It's a very clean place.

Good Continental Breakfast!

Very Friendly and Responsive Staff
