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.

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.

Location, Location, Location

Steps from the Alamo and across the street from the Rivercenter Mall, walking distance from the Riverwalk. I stayed on the second floor, with an Alamo view. Unfortunately, the street lights kept the room quite light throughout the night, even through the shutters. Next time I'll stay on the fourth floor or above.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

The Rivercenter Mall across the street is a good place to spend some time. The music in the courtyard, the Riverwalk boats, the IMAX, the dining ranges from the food court to Mortons which was a very nice dining experience.

Right in the middle if it all!

Location, location, location! This place is perfect. Directly across the street from the Alamo and the Rivercenter Mall, 5 minutes from the Riverwalk itself, and only a 10 minute walk to the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. Top it off with a great complimentary breakfast spread, friendly staff, and a great price and this place is hard to beat!

If you're a fan of sushi, make sure you get yourself to Sushi Zushi. They've got over 100 different rolls and friendly staff that gives you time to decide which ones you want.

Great overnight stay...

A great location with clean rooms and a nice ambience on a Saturday afternoon check-in. Friendly staff always asking if there was anything else they could do.

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.

Nice place, nice staff

We enjoyed our stay at the Crockett. It's super-conveniently located to the Alamo (across the street) and riverwalk (1-block). Rooms are clean, staff is nice. The room's a little small, but it's a historic hotel, so this makes sense... it's big enough. All told, a great value and a really nice place.

perfect location

I can't believe that I chose this hotel over the internet! It was wonderful! It was the perfect location--literally across the street from the Alamo. The rooms were small, but nice. Everything was spotless---the cleanest hotel that I have ever seen. Had a nice continental breakfast with variety. I was so lucky to have chosen this hotel, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
