Built more than 100 years ago, renovated hotel is just steps from Alamo
The Crockett Hotel provides the best of both worlds: classic old-school charm with brand-new furniture and amenities. The hotel was built on the site where Davy Crockett and his settlers defended the southeast palisade of the Alamo during a 13-day siege in 1836. The Alamo is just steps away and guests walk to the nearby Alamodome or Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. The outdoor pool is surrounded with gorgeous landscaping. Guests indulge in a daily complimentary breakfast bar. High-speed wireless Internet is free.
Highlights
  • More than 100 years of history and newly renovated in 2007
  • A mere 18 steps to the Alamo
  • Within walking distance of many San Antonio attractions
  • Complimentary deluxe breakfast bar served daily
  • Free high-speed wireless Internet
Rooms

The Crockett Hotel was first built in 1909, and then added onto in 1927, there are varying floor plans, room styles and suites among the 138 guest rooms. All have been renovated in 2007 and decorated in shades of sage green and cool cream. Regardless of room type, all guests enjoy free high-speed Wi-Fi, Gilchrist and Soames bath amenities, in-room movies and video games, and room service from 11 a.m to 2 a.m.

Features

Ernie's Bar, on the ground floor of the Crockett Hotel, is a close place to unwind. Guests cross the street and use the spa at the sister property, the historic Menger Hotel. The Alamo Plaza spa offers massages, herbal scrubs, wraps, facials, salt glow and other body treatments. A sauna and pool are available as well. The River Walk location connects guests to a myriad of upscale dining and shopping choices, inside the Rivercenter Mall. Being 18 steps from the Alamo and on the site of Davey Crockett's stand will thrill history buffs.

Great location!

You couldn't ask for a better location fire the price in downtown San Antonio! Just across the street from the Alamo, shopping, and a block from the river walk! Rooms were clean, well equipped, and nice. The bathrooms were a bit dated, but clean. Continental breakfast was fine, but I would have like done healthier options. Staff was friendly, and helpful. No complaints about our stay, what so ever!

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Two ways to the river walk....Cut through the mall across the street, or cut through the back entrance to the Alamo. Either are much cooler walks (temp and sites) in the San Antonio heat.

Location Awesome!

The location of this hotel is great and you can get it for a reasonable price-literally right behind the Alamo and next to Menger. Free room wifi is nice-was perfect for looking things up-my computer connected right away-a bit slow and timed out once or twice-but whatever-its free. Everything else is you get what you pay for-so its pretty ordinary-nothing to write home about. The hotel is old, but the room was clean. Our shower drain was a slow drain, which was kind of annoying but livable. Breakfast has different closing times depending on day of the week-food was similar to any budget breakfast buffet. Hot food trays and waffle maker didn't look particularly clean-so I avoided them-but they had cereal and muffins. So the hotel was great if you want a cheap hotel with a fantastic location and you don't expect to stay in your room much. If your room overlooks the lobby-you can hear voices crystal-clear and if someone happens to hit the right spot-you can actually hear their conversation with front desk instead of just muffled talking. Also, you can hear ppl open and close doors. So probably not a place for someone who is a light sleeper. You need to put the tag on your door for someone to know to either not disturb you or to come clean the room. When we forgot to the put the please clean now tag up-no one came till really late when we came back to rest, and both times we forgot to put the do not disturb tag someone came in while we were sleeping. Overall-location fantastic, really close to the Riverwalk-just walk across the street and through the mall, hotel comfort is as expected given the price, but it was clean. I'd stay again-though I don't mind just having a place to shower, sleep (and in San Antonio-a place to take a short mid-day nap when the heat and humidity is high) and I'm not a light sleeper. If I were pickier about comfort and amenities-I might look for something else.

A great place to stay at a great price.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Located behind the Alamo and across from a large mall that connects to the popular Riverwalk, it is within walking distance of most things of interest. It's reasonable price includes free WIFI and a breakfast buffet. I stayed 6 nights and would highly recommend the hotel.

Rverwalk and Alamo Convience

Hotel was convenient to the Convention Center, Riverwalk and the Alamo. Free Breakfast and Internet. Way overpriced and we got a "special". Room was just a basically furnished hotel room, nothing out of the ordinary.

Very nice stay

Extraordinary location, nice small room, well renovate, very clean, good services, staff pleasant. Very good breakfast. For parking, after comparison, I suggest to take the valet hotel 20$/day + taxes is competitive with around offer.
