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 for riverwalk and Alamo

So close to the river without having to pay extremely high prices. Rooms are very nice and the suite was great especially having joining rooms. Breakfast was good.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Was able to experience the nightlife and get our nutritional needs met along the riverwalk with a safe and short walk back to hotel. Was also easy to get on and off the interstate.

Location was Great

The location and price was great. Only thing we didnt like was the door keys (cards) because they didnt work as smoothly as they should, we had to keep trying to swipe the card until the door opened. The pool was cute but small. The rooms were clean, the Fiji water available in room is sold for $5 at checkout. Thought the $25 PLUS tax per day parking (self or valet) was outrageous. Overall, would recommend this hotel for your San Antonio stay.

Just what the doctor ordered!

We chose the hotel so we could walk to interesting places in San Antonio, especially the Riverwalk. And that was great - we could walk down to a restuarant on the river each night. Rooms were clean, functional and quite adequate, although we are used to having a bar fridge and kettle. Free breakfast was simple but fine, although thin plastic cutlery and polystyrene plates & cups are not very environmental. Staff were helpful. The only problem we experienced was a faint paint smell in our room. We got a good rate on the internet, and the hotel was very good value at that rate. We'd recommend it to others and we'd be quite happy to stay there again.

Eat down at the Riverwalk. Lots of choices - Tex Mex, Irish, Seafoood, Steak, Pizza, etc - a vibrant atmosphere especially at night, and a good place for a stroll afterwards.

Comfortable and Relaxing

We were treated very well, from check in to check out. The staff was friendly,yet professional. The breakfast buffet was decent, with good fresh watermelon and cantaloupe. Ernie's bar was a good place for a relaxing cocktail after a full day of enjoying San Antonio. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Lived up to Expectations

We spent 6 nights/7 days at the Crockett Hotel. The location is outstanding-walking distance to everything in the downtown area. Cleaning service times vary daily between 9am-3pm, that being the only complaint, the hotel stay was one of our best.

Great downtown value

The Crockett is a San Antonio landmark. Adjacent to the Alamo, across the strett from the Rivercenter Mall, and a short block from the riverwalk, it's the perfect location. Nothing super fancy, but about half the price of others in the area. Very clean and comfortable.

Crockett

I traveled for a business conference at a neighboring hotel. The Crockett Hotel offered more amenities (breakfast, free wifi) for half the price with the pleasant experience that comes with an independent, historic hotel. The hotel bar does not include a restaurant, but they do have free popcorn! The hotel staff was very pleasant and helpful. It's hard to find more value for the dollar.

First SA Trip

The location was excellent. Walking distance to everything. You had to pay extra for parking but not any extra for vallette (probably didn't spell that right), but it sure was easier just to be able to walk everywhere instead driving. the price was good,service was good, and I would definitely stay at the Crockett hotel again!
