Noble Inns4.0 out of 5.0

The Oge house bed and breakfast hosts an imposing figure and is beautiful upon entrance to the main lobby. The grounds were equally stunning. The house was beautiful and was a better price than one of the more upscale hotels. Our suite downstairs definitely showed the house's age, which was expected, but the upgrades of the tsubo jet tub were very welcome. The "fireplace" was amusing with it's lights, but was deeply lacking, as it only provided lights and a clicking noise, and no heat whatsoever was gained. Some of the creaking of the house gave an unsettling atmosphere causing little sleep to be had. The bed was comfortable and the headboard beautiful, but the blinds did not sufficiently blot out the 24/7 lighting outside, leading to more difficulty sleeping. The innkeeper at our arrival, "Lauren" seemed bothered by the imposition of having guests that she had to spend time serving. She complained of her duties in each encounter, making us want to stay away from the main areas to avoid her attitude as much as possible. The other innkeeper and the housekeeper seemed very friendly and more than happy to oblige. Breakfast was suitable and what you would expect for the price, but the lemonade in the lobby appeared to have spoiled and tasted terrible. With the attitude and sleeping difficulties of the venue, in future we will choose to stay on the riverwalk in a more mainstream and welcoming environment.
The Noble Inns are off future places to recommend or revisit. For a girls-only long weekend we decided a Bed & Breakfast would be more charming that a retail hotel so we booked a room at Oge House, one of the Noble Inns of San Antonio. Like an online dating profile the pictures and description are a bit more glamorous than the reality but the house has charm and its proximity and walk-ability to the Riverwalk, El Mercado, La Villita, The Alamo and other attractions is appealing. The staff is friendly and accommodating but unfortunately the same can’t be said for the owner Don Noble. While speaking to him about a problem he broke eye contact, sat down and starting working on his computer saying, “He had better things to do with his time”. This lack of hospitality especially from the Innkeeper himself was totally unexpected and sadly I feel the real problem stemmed from us not being a “traditional” couple. In summary, if you chose to check-in to Noble Inns I recommend you pack a Man for the visit if you expect courteous service.
We stayed the weekend at the Jackson House with my Brother and Sister-in-law from Michigan. The rooms were great and we loved the common area with coffee, water, fresh lemonade, Sherry and Port. The breakfasts served at Oge House were spectacular and not to be missed.
We arrived a little after the accepted check-in time of 3 p.m. on a Saturday afternoon in early June. The friendly young clerk on duty was charming and helpful. We were given maps and information and shown to our room on the first floor, a.k.a. the ground floor. It was a lovely two room suite with both interior and exterior access. We had our own tiny porch and it was a quick walk to the car to retrieve our luggage. The bed was large and comfortable, and the antique headboard nightstand combination was massive, almost taking up an entire wall. The air conditioner cooling, the TV large, the chairs comfortable. In the bathroom, we had an option of a large jacuzzi tub or shower. Breakfasts were tasty, filling and well prepared. Both the front and back porch were a welcome diversion before beginning a day of exploration. The interior public spaces were great for relaxing, reading, conversation, or just hanging out. The Oge House Inn is a southern girl’s dream come true—at least it was for this southern girl. Planted in the venerable King William District of San Antonio, bordering the quiet portion of the San Antonio River, it is a lovely and serene escape from the frantic hustle and bustle of the downtown area. However, all those sights and sounds are just a stone’s throw—walkable distance—away. An eclectic selection of restaurants is a brief five-minute stroll down Turner Street; the portion of the Riverwalk that backs up to The Oge House is a peaceful oasis and will take you anywhere you want to go. If your plans bring you to Central Texas, I highly recommend The Oge House for your next vacation. It is the perfect weekend or weekday retreat in this wonderful old city—the ultimate way of experiencing the charm and history of San Antonio.
This place is very clean and convenient. The staff have always been accommodating both times I stayed here. Even if you are business traveler to downtown San Antonio this is a great place to stay as you can walk to downtown along the River Walk, which adjoins the property at the back of the property (about a 1/2 mile walk). The porch is very nice to enjoy in the evenings. I will stay here next time I visit San Antonio.
If there is a prettier place to stay in while in San Antonio, I don't know if it. The river walk is almost right behind the house, and a lovely walk all the way to the Alamo, if you so please. The breakfasts were delicious and served in a cozy parlor front room. Our room was in the basement, so a bit on the dark side, but the cheerful furniture and lively fabrics made up for it. The only slight drawback here were the sheets, oddly bumpy in spots like a cheap fabric too often washed.
This lovely old home is in the historic area of San Antonio. Our room was on the 2nd floor front, so we had access to the outside porch. The room was a good size with period furnishings. Very quiet. I felt like I'd stepped back in time. The bathroom was small but adequate. In addition to the cooked breakfast, they offer cookies and lemonade at 4 and port or sherry at night. Tea is also available. Very civilized. The home is the mansion of someone famous in San Antonio history. All around it are other interesting old homes. The area is also known for its restaurants. Staff gave us a very helpful map with an annotated list of restaurants within a few blocks. The Riverwalk runs about 1/2 block from the house. It's very pretty but the more populated area with restaurants and shops is a 15-20 minute walk toward the center of town. One caution: The house has lots of stairs so you must be able to manage them.
This was a lovely place to stay and the facilities were very enjoyable. Breakfast was very different everyday and was ideally located for all the sights. Walking distance from the river walk and the centre of town. This hotel doesn't have lots of rooms so you need to book to have a choice. Every room has its own theme. Very quaint. Good internet .
Spent another weekend in the Riverview Suite at the Oge House. Love the private porch overlooking the River Walk, the large jacuzzi tub and the delicious breakfasts. The staff is always friendly and helpful, the chocolate chip cookies are a wonderful indulgence, and the parking is safe and free. I highly recommend Noble Inns for a romantic San Antonio getaway!
Wonderful antebellum mansion right on the riverfront in a distinctive historic district in San Antonio. We stayed two nights there and had a wonderful time in our suite, hosting friends and enjoying the relaxed ambiance. Breakfasts were okay, nothing special. Cindy was a first class manager, anticipating our every need. She gave us a detailed map of the area and excellent recommendations about local independent restaurants that were as first class as Oge Mansion. Definitely a gem among San Antonio places to stay!
