I spend the night before Thanksgiving at the Crockett Hotel. It is a very quaint hotel and the Manager Eduardo Alcantar was very personable, professional and friendly. The room was very nice. The only thing that could have made it better was the city cleans the streets after 12 midnight and the powerwashing was very loud....hard to sleep through that. But, the hotel food was very good and being in walking distance to everything was awesome! I am so glad I stayed there!

The staff was very friendly and the rooms were very nice. We were able to walk to the Riverwalk and the mall is across the street. Would definitely stay again.

How can you complain about the location? Directly across the street from the Historic Alamo and a wonderful 2 block walk to the Riverwalk! Park and enjoy what San Antonio has to offer. The staff is very courteous, helpful and sincere. Breakfast is just fine, too. The bar (though smokey at times, which is usual for most bars in SA) is relaxing and staffed well. The rooms? Huge, clean and well appointed. A GREAT value for the location. You cannot go wrong!

I WOULD DEFINiTELY RECOMMEND!! I was a bit hesistant when I booked this hotel, thinking it would be too much like a Holiday Inn. San Antonio was pretty booked up this weekend and our only other choices were in the $400 range. The reviews seemed pretty good so I decided to go for it. The rooms were simple, yet quite lovely. The initial starkness was probably due to the blinds, but I came to really like it for our four night visit. The staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful. Our first room was near the elevator, which was noisy, and knowing they were totally booked I was reluctant to request another room. Fortunately, it was early in the day and they were able to accommodate us. Both rooms were really very nice. Breakfast was OK, and yes, the waffles were very good!! They offer coffee all day, which was a very nice touch. The location is great, right across from the Alamo and mall, just a couple of blocks from the Riverwalk. We spent quite a bit of time walking the Riverwalk, but the restaurants weren't great there. Best eating secret - Morton's across the street w/$5 appetizer menu & reduced priced drinks 5-6:30 and after 9pm (Best deal anywhere)!!

I have to say I logged onto Tripadvisor.com and read some reviews prior to booking our wknd with them. There were mixed reviews but we thought let's stay somewhere that has a bit of history, so we did.
The hotel staff at the front desk was friendly enough. The location was great, close to all the major attractions.
We got to our room and was shocked to see how little it was, but not only little, it was totally plain; hardly anymore than a Motel 6, from their bedding to their drapes to the furniture, and I'm not exaggerating at all. The bathroom was so small that we didn't have enough room on the tiny vanity top to put our stuff; hardly anymore room to put a couple of toothbrushes and paste.
The complimentary breakfast was less than good. We got there about an hr before closing so they shouldn't have run out of anything. They offerred waffles which were adequate; they also offerred scrambled eggs that were cold. Even the new batch brought were almost cold, definitely not even warm. Their toasters took almost forever to do bread much less bagel that were, by the way, totally tasteless. The orange juice and coffee were good.
At $200.00 per night they still have the old type TV's rather than the LCD TV's. No DVD players either.
Their parking was totally unreasonable at a cost of $25.00 per night with parking offerred elsewhere in close proximity at less than 1/2 that.
We will not ever stay at the Crockett Hotel, San Antonio again!!!!

Pros: Great location, literally right across the street from the Alamo. 100 yards from the Rivercenter Mall and Riverwalk. Valet parking costs $25 per day. Outdoor Pool, no hottub. Continental breakfast is good. Comfortable bed. Hot showers, good water pressure.

Cons: Reception staff is not that knowledgeable. Elevator requires your room key to swipe, but DOESNT WORK 90 percent of the time, and you end up waiting 5 minutes to take the elevator up. Room televisions are ok, remote controls are antiquated. There is complimentary wireless in the rooms which is ok, but the business center downstairs charges 8 dollars for like 10 minutes of internet, with a printer. The room shades don't close all the way so if you like a dark room, good luck getting to sleep. Rooms smell a bit musty.

Great potential, but alot of the little things are overlooked.

The Crockett is simply charming and the location can't be beat. The suites are perfect for a family traveling with small children. The breakfast was delicious and the staff are delightful. A great value too! Why stay in any chain when you can stay next door to the Alamo!
