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.

San Antonio Weekend

This was my second stay here. The first was two and a half years ago. The Hotel is still clean, staff is still friendly and the location remains great! It's right behind the Alamo! It is next to the glorious Menger Hotel and down the street from the tour bus offices. The much-improved Riverfront Mall, with Morton's Steakhouse, Macy's and an AMC movie theater is literally 100 feet away! There is no restaurant, but the RiverWalk is two blocks away! I LOVE this hotel.

Greatest Location

If you are planning a trip to San Antonio and intend to spend most of your time in the downtown riverwalk area this is one of the greatest hotels you can ask for. It is literally steps away from the Alamo and right across the street from the Rivercenter Mall and Riverwalk itself. Definitely a great idea if you want to avoid having to drive around town. The front desk was very friendly and even let us check in early. They also allowed us to keep our car in the valet parking the next day until we were ready to leave free of charge. The hotel is nice. It's somewhat old timey but everything is nice and it has a free breakfast which is convenient. The hotel also has a bar inside. I would definitely recomend staying here!

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

We took a Ghost Hunting tour which took place literally steps away from the hotel right in front of the Alamo. It wasn't scary or anything but it was interesting and a fun way to get to know San Antonio. There were also horse and carriage rides that took place almost right out our hotel. It was definitely a great place to stay for entertainment purposes.

Good location accessible to Riverwalk

The inside of the hotel was very clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly. The breakfast included was not exceptionally good, but we were really not staying at the hotel to eat the breakfast. Easy access to the Riverwalk and right across the street from the Alamo. I would consider staying at this hotel again.

Just What We Needed

It was raining outside and we decided to valet park. It was easy to check in, room was clean and ready when we got there. Walking distance to Rivercenter Mall and Riverwalk, as well as the Alamo and other tourist spots.

"GREAT HOLIDAY VACATION"

It is in a great location, everything in a walking distance, downtown! The Alamo is just crossing the street, as is the Rivercenter Mall entering from the Morton's Restaurant (on the opposite side of the hotel's restaurant)... It's a great place to stay, nice, comfortable and great breakfast included!!! I would definitely stay again on my next trip to S.A.

If you are really hungry and want to eat for 2 at the riverwalk, choose Rio Rio Cantina and ask for the "botana grande"... it's DELICIOUS and you'll be full for the rest of the day/night!

Location, location, location!

I thought this hotel was definitely value for money. Number one, the location is GREAT! It is right behind the Alamo (one of the must see in San Antonio), and it's about a 3 minute walk to the Rivercentre Mall at which you can walk along the Riverwalk. It's beautiful. The only wrinkle is that the breakfast isn't all that great. It was mostly cold breakfast with the only exception for scrambled eggs. But it's better than nothing! Also beds are comfortable and the shower works perfectly fine - not like one of those showers that either freezes you or scorch you. STAY HERE!!

Clean, comfortable, great value with breakfast included. Within walking distance of major attractions. Would have been helpful to have a "daily events" calendar of local happenings.

Outstanding holiday getaway!

The Crockett Hotel is outstanding - perfect location. Located directly behind the Alamo, easy walking access to the Riverwalk, Market Square and Hemisphere Park. Trolley service is on every corner and all destinations are marked for ease. Very safe and clean area for walking day/night. The Crockett Hotel is a must for everyone - huge continental breakfast options, staff was helpful, bar was entertaining and the rooms were very clean, as well as the rest of the hotel. After a great deal of research on the various hotels - we are very pleased with our choice of The Crockett Hotel. You rock!

River walk convenience

Love the location right behind the Alamo. Easy walking distances to SA attractions. Welcoming hotel staff and excellent car valet. Inclusive breakfast could be better. Quiet most of the time except for the intermitant noisy ice machine on the 6th floor.
