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.

You can't beat the location!

The location is awesome! It is literally right across the street from one of the entrances to the Alamo. It's close to the mall, riverwalk and lots more. It was very clean, comfortable. Breakfast was more than adequate. If you are driving, you'll pay $20 for valet parking but that is the going rate for all the hotels downtown. Great stay, fantastic location. Would definitely stay there again. Ask for a room facing the outside. It's quieter than the ones facing into the lobby.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

There is public transit (not the expensive tour buses!)that will get you many of the places you'd want to go. It's called "Via" and we used it a few times to go to the Market (El Mercado). It's a $1.20 fare one way but **here's what we learned on the last day** if you ask for a transfer pass, it's only another $0.15. So, a round trip bus trip from the Alamo to the Martket was $1.35 a person. Save those tootsies! (Kids are even cheaper!)

Visit to the Alamo

This is a historical hotel just one block from the Alamo in downtown San Antonio. It was very convenient for our visit. It is also a short walk to the Riverwalk and across the street from the mall.

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!

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.

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.

Great Location, good bargain

Really, the best thing this hotel has going for it is the proximity to the Alamo and Riverwalk. You're literally across the street from the mission, the historical Menger Hotel (and bar), the Rivercenter Mall and no more than a couple hundred yards from the Riverwalk. My only complaints would be the generally lackadaisical staff - except for the manager on duty, who was very personable - and the $20/day parking, which I think is a little ridiculous. The breakfast also leaves a lot to be desired (but you wouldn't expect to be wowed by a hotel breakfast buffet, anyhow). That being said, we would definitely stay there again. The few annoyances/inadequacies are far outweighed by the overall value and location. Also, we went in February and the weather was absolutely perfect. I've traveled to San Antonio in the middle of July before and it was near unbearable but the weather this trip could not have been better.
