“Two Nights At Crockett in San Antonio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

We loved this hotel! My last visit was 25 years ago and I was impressed with it then and even more so this time. The charm and hospitality is timeless. The accommodations were updated and modern without losing its historical charm. And, the saying "Location, location, location" is absolutely perfect for the Crockett. It's across the street from the Alamo, the plaza for catching tour buses, the mall, and across the street on the other side from the mall. Great hotel!

3 days of pure joy! Look out the window at the Alamo! Take a short walk to the River Walk, and wonderful restaurants. Tour buses stop a block away. And, the horse carriages go right out front. Our room was large, but for a historic hotel, it was very well kept!

We stayed overnight in San Antonio and had a limited amount of time to visit the Alamo and the Riverwalk, and this hotel was literally across the street from both. It's a lovely older hotel that's well-staffed and well maintained, with full amenities and plenty of good choices for breakfast. The bed was very comfortable and the room was spotless.

We were really impressed with the Crockett. We entered the impressive lobby, and were greeted by a very efficient desk clerk, who made us feel like VIPS. The rooms were large, sparsely decorated, and very clean. The hallways were a bit dreary, and the air conditioning was somewhat noisy. We had a leafy view of the Alamo Park, and the River Walk was just a few short blocks away through the River Center mall. The free breakfast was similar to what you might find in chain hotels, with plenty of choices. Best of all was the very small, but attractive pool area that made you feel you were in an oasis in the city.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Alamo.

I absolutely loved this little hotel! It is in a prime location and walking distance to everything cool.
The rooms on the inside of the building face the atrium so be sure to ask for a room with an outside view. The rooms are small but very neat and kept clean. I absolutely loved all of the brick in this hotel and the history about it.
The breakfast was decent but we really didn't eat there much so I can't give a fair review on the rest of the food. Morton's is directly across the street and its def worth the visit! Its much easier to stay parked at the hotel and walk to all of your nearby destinations... which is plentiful. Checking out took us a bit longer as everyone seemed to be checking out the same day and they only had one person at the front counter. None the less, its worth the stay!

Even though the Crockett is my second favorite place to stay in town it is owned and operated by the owners of the nearby Menger my #1 choice. Until the evening before I left I didn't know that there is the "old" section and the new section. I stayed in the new section so I can't attest to the other. My room was spotless and was thoroughly cleaned every morning. However said the service was the worst they've ever scene, was based on my 4 day stay way off base. My only complaint is that the entranceway is small and it lacked a ramp for the disabled. (I admit I could have missed it) On my last evening I spoke to the hotel GM (sorry I'm poor with names) who filled me in on the history of the Crockett. Nearby are some places I'd suggest that you visit while in town. The famous Menger Hotel Bar is only a short walk away as is the Alamo. both Riverwalk and the Imax are a short walk away. One thing about the weather it can get cold and rainy in the winter and the summers are very humid. We like to go in mid spring and early fall because of the weather and there can be less tourist than in the summer.

I recently stayed at this hotel while attending a conference at the convention center, just a short riverwalk away. My room overlooked the wall surrounding the Alamo...nice. The Crockett is a sister hotel to the Menger Hotel, another favorite of mine located across the street.
