“Great for "odor sensitive" people!”
Reviewed 27 August 2010

Love that I can smell NOTHING in this hotel! Not cleaners, not stale smoke, not carpet stuff.... just nothing! Wonderful! Room was very roomy. Stayed here a long time ago when it was owned by a different company (national chain) and it had been allowed to fall into disrepair. It was old, and dark. Rooms now have a clean fresh look/feel to them. Great Job Crockett! Staff were very friendly and helpful also.

For starters, the history of the Crockett Hotel and it's namesake is like none other. The temperature outside that day was hovering around 100 degrees, but the room temperature was just right, the beds were comfortable and the room was spacious. Breakfast the next morning included delicious fresh fruit and those super Texas waffles.

The Crockett is located behind the Alamo--for a Texas history enthusiast, that alone is impressive. It was fun to look down on the street below that night and see the lighted horse drawn carriages, especially the one that looked as though it could have whisked Cinderella away from the Ball. San Antonio really is a fun place to visit!

The hotel representatives were excellent. They were courteous, helpful, and very knowledgeable about the area.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent visit to the Alamo City. We are extremely pleased that we lived up to our reputation as a great historic, boutique hotel in the heart of our city!

We strive every day to exceed our guests expectations. We will share your comments with our staff. For 101 years, the Crockett Hotel has been a favorite of many, when travelling to downtown San Antonio.

Thank you again. We look forward to your return visits to San Antonio.

We booked our trip with hotel and air through AAA, for a lower price than I found advertised elsewhere on the internet. Our only extra travel expenses were the luggage fees and the ground transportation (Airport Express, great job). The rate included a breakfast buffet - nothing fancy, but it was more than adequate and kept us from buying another meal each day. We loved the Texas Wafflemaker on the buffet, and almost bought one in a River Center Mall store. The room was comfortable, had a nice view of the rear gate of the Alamo, the nearby Emily Morgan hotel, and some other Alamo Plaza skyline. The room did not have a safe or a refrigerator. The hotel offers free internet access, we just had to request the password at the front desk. The lobby also has a computer with pay access, but you can log onto the airline sites and print your boarding passes free. Ernie's bar, on the lobby level, is a relaxing place to have a drink and a quick snack. I think the hotel parking fee was rather expensive (one reason why we didn't rent a car); but the hotel is in walking distance to everything in and around Alamo Plaza, and the trolley and bus service was very handy for trips outside the immediate area. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and found the hotel to be a great value.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent stay at the Crockett Hotel. Special thanks for your kind words, for Eduardo's efforts to make your stay a special one. He is typical of the kind and caring staff that help operate the Crockett Hotel on a daily basis. A small, dedicated staff with our customers always top of mind.

As a historic structure, we have a number of room configurations and it is difficult to post a photo of every single configuration. What photos are available on our website are the most typical of the three bed types that we provide (double double, queen and king bedded rooms)

We look forward to your future visits to San Antonio, the Alamo City.

I stayed here with a friend to celebrate my birthday weekend and would recommend it and book a future stay. The location is fantastic, close to the Alamo and River Walk without suffering through the late-night noise you get from a river-front hotel. The price was great and two of my favorite things were the very nice continental breakfast (with Texas-shaped belgian waffles!) and the Haagen Daz room delivery. They will bring you a pint of ice cream and deliver it to your door - and in the heat of the summer it was a great way to cool off after a day of sight-seeing. The only minor disappointment was the pool - it's not much to write home about - but we weren't there to swim.

We stayed one night at the Crockett Hotel and used Priceline to book the room. The rate was decent (especially considering the proximity to the Alamo) but the front desk attendant was shocked when we arrived with 3 small children because the reservation only asked for the number of adults. Like some others we were "upgraded" to a suite. The room was large but the fold-out sofa sleeper was the single most uncomfortable "bed" I've ever had the displeasure of sleeping on. A bed of railroad spikes would have been infinitely more comfortable.

If you're claustrophobic you'll HATE the elevators and if your key card won't work you run the risk of getting stuck in the elevator while you wait for someone else to summon it.

The continental breakfast was just slightly above average but the make-it-yourself waffle station causes the line to back up severely. It took us 20 minutes just to get our food and get seated. By that time the eggs were ice cold.

Parking is also a complete rip-off. You pay a handsome price to have your car parked in an easy-access surface lot adjacent to the hotel.

Overall I'd recommend the hotel - if you can get the room for less than $80 a night, otherwise look elsewhere.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay at the Crockett Hotel.

We use our customer comments in training our staff and to improve our level of service for our future guests. Also we know that many guests use these reviews to make their future reservation decisions. We will try to add some points of clarification so our guests have all of the facts when deciding to make hotel reservations.

We enjoy supplying rooms to Priceline shoppers. Their confirmations do stipulate that when buying a room on Priceline that the room will accommodate 2 adults. As such, we book Priceline guests in our rooms with 1 queen sized bed. We allow customers to upgrade to a larger double double when available, but this is always provided on a space available basis. Part of the price savings for customers from a Priceline booking is less flexibility on room type, etc. so we recommend if specific room requirements are needed, contact the hotel directly.

Our hotel is a 101 historic structure. It provides a great environment, with close proximity to all there is to see and do in San Antonio. We have two guest elevators which were completely modernized in our most recent renovation (2007). The one thing that could not be changed with them was the original size of the cars or elevator shaft. Many people find them an interesting feature of a 101 year old hotel. The key access in the elevators helps us control access to the guest floors to ONLY our hotel guests. This provides a high level of safety and security for our customers.

Parking in the downtown area is limited and virtually any hotel in our area will have a charge for parking a vehicle. We own our parking lot, a surface lot with limited access, and it is staffed 24/7 by our parking personnel. The charge for parking is not included in our rate as nearly 1/2 of our guests arrive without a car. Our current overnight rate provides unlimited in/out and is quite a bit less than most of our neighboring hotels (many are charging $25-30+ for this service). We continually review the parking prices in our market and are determined to stay at or below the average, providing a value to our customers that need to park a vehicle while staying with us.

Once again, thank you for your feedback. We hope that your review and our additional information will help future guests to the Crockett hotel to thoroughly enjoy their visit to the heart of San Antonio!
