Thé room too small and breakfast it’s to poor and you don’t space to have breakfast and they charge you for parking

It was a nice considering that it is an old hotel, not bad free breakfast

Very nice, great location and great price. I definitely would stay here again.

The hotel was far enough away from the center of town so it was quiet

Excellent location a block away from river walk, nice staff, clean room, good breakfast, and is convenient to everywhere.

Enjoyed our stay! The staff was polite the room was nice and clean. Short walk to the river walk about 2 minutes! Price was great for the room and location.

Great location. Great price for the area. Breakfast included which starts the day off on a good foot. Room was good size and beds very comfortable. Older hotel without the amenities in the far costlier ones in the area. But I found with all the things to see in San Antonio I did not use. This hotel has a nice homey touch. Would definitely stay on my next trip to SA.

very convenient location. heat in my room wasn't working, but they gave me a space heater, so it was fine.

When we first checked in the room had dirt or soot on the bed sheets and had a horrible musty smell. We went to front desk and they immediately changed our room to an upgrade which was much better.

The staff was amazing. Mike and Jorge especially went out of their way to make our stay like being home. I would give them more than 5 if that was possible because they totally gave us stellar service. Our room have a jetted tub which made for the perfect soothing bubble-y end to a long day of experiencing San Antonio by foot and barge. And don't even get me started on the waffles! Yummy blueberry waffles in the shape of Texas. How cute is that?

It's not the biggest hotel but it's nice and quiet and not busy.if you are looking for something with a good place this is the one .

My husband and I had a very nice time in San Antonio and including our stay at the O'Brien Hotel. The hotel staff was attentive and pleasant, our rooom was clean, spacious and breakfast was good. The location is perfect, less than half a block to the riverwalk, we also walked to the Alamo and their local market, which is a must see as well.. Highly recommend this well priced hotel.

Great place, good location in walking to downtown. Parking was limited but ok. Overall a good stay for 1 night.

Great location, staff, and facilities. We had a great time in San Antonio thanks to this hotel. Walking distance to the river walk and safe area to walk during the night. Highly recommended!

Nice, very good localization. Walking distance to places of interest and to conference center.

Stayed here overnight for a weekend trip.Hotel is close to riverwalk and easy in and out access . Not enough parking for the amount of rooms though, so if your lucky you can park across from the entrance . Stay was comfortable .

Great place and location is awesome. The river walk is at your front door.

There was nothing 'boutique' or charming about this hotel. Location was great! Hotel seemed a little 'seedy'. Cleaning staff almost non-existant. Carpet in my room very dirty! Bathroom water pressure, showerhead & jacuzzi tub fantastic after a long hot day touring sights.

This is an older, historical boutique hotel that is very nicely restored and is pristine condition. The beds are very comfortable with pillow-top mattresses. Rooms are clean and comfortable. You get a continental breakfast that can be quite filling. The best thing, however, is the staff. Being first time visitors to San Antonio they were very helpful in recommending things to see and do in town. We couldn't have asked for a nicer, friendlier staff. The location is within walking distance of just about everything in town. There are many large, more modern hotels in the Riverwalk area, but this place is a jewel. You won't be disappointed.
