Mom slept past the complementary breakfast....our fault.
Easy booking & friendliness of staff.

There is only one restaurant nearby....no place to grab snacks. Having said that, the pizza place. Ext door is amazing. The claw footed tub keeps in line with age of hotel, but the bottom was badly rusted in spots and drain area was badly chipped...needs major attention.
Location to downtown, Riverwalk, trolley and double decker buses is very convenient. A well kept historical building, small boutique style hotel, well appointed.

There was no heat in the room. On top of that the windows were thin so they didn't keep the cold out. Also they didn't lock. The $10 per day parking is limited to about 10 spaces. When they are full you have to find a public parking lot and remember to keep adding money to park there or get towed! The breakfast area consisted of 3 small folding tables with 6 chairs. The walls were paper thin. The beds a full size not queen. My suggestion is to run. Run away fast! Checked out after 1 night of a 3 night stay.

Staff not welcoming, need to get double-pane windows, because the street noise was terrible, and poor air circulation in room.
The small size of the hotel. Not being a large "chain" hotel. Felt like a B & B. Except staff not as welcoming.

The road noise made it difficult to sleep.
The room was very clean and comfortable.

Very close to River Walk.

Street noise at night

Better lighting in room.Need "blackout" shade for balcony door so morning light doesn't awaken you.
Location,convenient reasonable parking. soft pillows..Large room in back of hotel so no noise. It was cold so didn't use balcony. It looked inviting even though there is no privacy from other rooms that adjoin the balcony. Maybe one could make friends !

- Breakfast, not a lot of room. Get up early if you want some.
-Excellent location, walking distance from river walk

Room smelt horrible, wet damp musty smell.
Fantastic location close to river walk and town and free parking

The hotel was close to all riverwalk attractions.

Great location, room was clean and comfortable, even for four women in one single room. I like the idea of having breakfast close to your room instead of a dinning area. Walking distance from our destination, close to many restaurants. In general, Great experience.

Breakfast seating area on second floor. Hotel is old and worn.
Location to Riverwalk.

We were very pleased with the way that the staff looked out for guests and directed them to the parking lot over the road. In addition we were allowed an hour later checkout at no extra cost which was useful to us as we had a late flight which was connecting to a long international flight.

Traffic noise, but I guess that goes with the location.
Location, access to riverwalk. friendliness of staff.

Bathroom size was uncomfortable. ..no fan in bathroom. Beds not firm enough. Breakfast area not very user friendly.not a good social area. Access to a pool would be nice. Room size was also uncomfortable ( too crowded).
Location. Cleanliness. Price was reasonable. Daily cleaning was good.

Nothing we didn't like about the O'Brien hotel or San Antonio.
Proximity to Riverwalk and all restaurants. Easy to get around and to all attractions. Very clean city, people very friendly and helpful.

With all the fancy furnishings - No fridge in the room?!. Noise from the street (single glazed windows). Super tight parking, absolutely no seating place to have your complimentary breakfast.
Great location, high end room furnishings, super clean, good service. Probably the best value for money near River Walk.

Musty smell in lobby
Economical, especially with breakfast included.
June 10, 2014
THE ONLY NEGATIVE THING WAS THAT THE AIR CONDITIONER DID NOT WORK WELL BUT WE WERE COMPENSATED FOR THE INCONVENIENCE
ENJOYED THE HOTEL AND THE MANAGER WAS WONDERFUL

It was a bit hot in some areas of the hotel including the rooms. You can't turn the ac down lower than 70 or the units will freeze. Definitely think they need central a/c.
The location was great, we were able to walk to various locations such as the Alamo, mall, market and the villita. The downtown atmosphere was exciting and we had a great view from our room.

Bathroom was very small (door even hits toilet when opening). Tough to move around in. For a room with two queen beds, you would think the bath would at least be able to have more room.
Room was very clean, nicely maintained. Beds were very comfortable and the location was very close to the river walk with restaurants just a couple of blocks down the river. Free breakfast was very nice.

No tv guide in the room.
The balcony. The proximity to the River Walk.
