Alamo

Would recommend Sat, Nov 7, 2015
Our group enjoyed our stay there. Only one problem, one in out group got ants in his room. He was moved from that room to another that was very nice. We enjoyed the bar & friendly bartenders. The breakfast buffet was very good. The close proxcimity to the Alamo was great.

shower did not work

Would recommend Wed, Sep 23, 2015
The sink and toilet worked just fine but, the shower barely trickled a stream of water. Upon check out, I Informed the front desk clerk about the issue upon check out. I requested a voucher for another stay, instead I got a voucher for a serving of their famous mango ice cream, which was excellent. . I have stayed at the Menger in the past, and was very pleased with previous stays. A word to the wise, check out the shower when you first check in to your room.

Football Week-end

Would recommend Tue, Sep 15, 2015
We had been in the lobby of the hotel on previous trip & decided we wanted to stay on next trip. We weren't disappointed. Loved stepping back in time with this wonderful hotel. Room was nicely furnished and welcoming. Breakfast buffet was great. The location was in the middle of everything, didn't need to rent a car & that was a relief. Can't wait until our next visit.

Fun Texas getaway

Would recommend Tue, Feb 10, 2015
This is an historic hotel. While the details are quaint, they are not always that comfortable. We were kindly upgraded to a suite one of the nights we stayed there. The standard room bed was more comfortable than the iron bed in the suite. We were there in mid-December and one of the lobbies was undergoing renovation. I'm sure it should be lovely when completed. All in all, the location is great and I would recommend the hotel to anyone on holiday in San Antonio.

Thanksgiving Weekend in San Antonio

Would recommend Thu, Dec 4, 2014
All in all we had a very positive experience with this hotel. Pros: it's across the street from the Alamo; two blocks from the heart of the Riverwalk; easy access to the highway for the rental car; valet parking; Wi-fi was free, easy to access, and dependable; hotel staff service was EXCELLENT in all respects; classic, old-time hotel (still had four full size phone booths in the lobby#; beautiful old-time dining room; food was good; beautiful pool and separate outdoor garden and courtyard. Cons: if you want the latest and greatest in decor and certain amenities, this hotel is not for you; you have to appreciate certain elements of days gone by; most rooms have double beds #not queens or kings); air conditioning in the room was difficult to control, sometimes it became too warm while other times it was too cold; rooms show signs of wear and tear and deferred maintenance; we understand there is a renovation plan in the works; one of the wall sockets did not work as another example. However, the room and hotel were clean. If you can get past the "datedness" of the rooms, then I think you will enjoy your stay. If you can't, you probably should stay elsewhere (like in one of the nearby "chain" hotels).

Attractions

Alamo is worth seeing, and the entrance is less than a block away. We also walked to the Alamodome (15 minutes) to see a UTSA football game Saturday afternoon.

Would recommend Mon, Nov 24, 2014
My husband and I stayed here for an evening and have a wonderful stay. The hotel is beautiful and we will stay there again. But be warned that the rooms are pretty snug--like a European room.
