About

Welcome to Inn on the Riverwalk. Situated along the picturesque bank of the San Antonio River, near the historic King William District, our inn offers a romantic escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. From the moment you enter this carefully restored, turn of the century home, you'll be entranced by period details such as high airy ceilings, original pine floors, shingled cupolas, and wrap around porches. The entire house is an ideal setting for family reunions, wedding receptions, or small business conferences. A stately pecan tree towers over the house and shades the exterior courtyard. In the morning you'll wake to a full breakfast, prepared by our chef. Breakfast may be enjoyed in the dining area or alfresco on your private porch or balcony. In the evening, a gently cascading waterfall just up-river lulls you to sleep.

Great Spot on the Riverwalk

4.2 on December 11, 2014

Stayed 2 nights in Cottage 23. Porch right on the riverwalk just south of the main action. Easy pretty walk to riverwalk restaurants and businesses yet quiet and conveninet place to stay. Restored older home was quite nice and staff were extremely friendly, helpful and accomodating. I would definitely stay here again.

Nice place - I would return


Perfect Stay

I can't say enough good things about this Inn! The people who work there are just the nicest people! I mentioned it was our honeymoon and they upgraded us to the honeymoon suite from a cottage room. That sweet gesture alone blew us away, then we walked into our room and we were amazed! It was the perfect room for our honeymoon. We loved the balcony overlooking the river and the skyline. The cold breakfast was so good, all the good treats we never get at home. We did splurge for the hot breakfast one morning, and it was delicious! Thank you to the wonderful staff who made us feel at home. We have recommended this Inn to anyone who will listen.

Lighting could have been better in the room. Very convenient place to stay.


Excellent!

We stayed in cottage 24 for our 3rd anniversary on 11/1/14. The room was beautiful and well kept. The riverwalk was about 10 minutes away. Everything was in walking distance. There was a complimentary breakfast everyday that included muffins, pastries, bagels, tea, juice, and coffee. Lots to choose from! All the staff that we came in contact with were very pleasant. When we returned home I noticed I forgot my make up bag. We live 4 hours away so driving back to get it was not an option. They sent it to me in the mail. That was beyond awesome and great customer service! Will stay again if we are ever in San Antonio and would recommend it to friends and family or just anyone looking to get away for a romantic weekend! So much better then a hotel.


Cant wait to go back

I stayed in Cottage 43 (because everything else was booked) it was really cute and comfy. Next time I want to plan ahead and get one of the better rooms. Staff was super cool and helpful.


The rooms were disappointing

2.0 on October 26, 2014

When I booked room 13, I picked it based on the charming picture that is on the website. When we got to our room, there wasn't anything charming about it. The furniture in the picture is nothing like what is actually in the room. The bedspread is obviously very old and worn. The bathroom does have a shower stall, but the rest of the bathroom was very small. There isn't a place to put your toiletries. We were very disappointed to find out the the breakfast provided was a continental breakfast of cereal and prepackaged muffins and pastries. Nothing was homemade, but for an extra fee you could have a homemade breakfast. For the money that we paid for the room, I don't think this is acceptable. The location was very peaceful and was on the River Walk, but you have to go up to the street and walk quite a ways to get to any of the restaurants on the River Walk. There was not a nearby trolley stop. The only thing positive that I can say about this location is that when you are in your room, it is very quiet. You can't even tell that there are other guests.


We will return

This was second time here and we will be back. Comfortable bed, clean room, good breakfast, and a short walk to The Riverwalk.


Fun Get-a-Way!

3.4 on October 19, 2014

We had room on second floor with a porch that looked over the River Walk. Very quiet during our stay, easy walk to all the festivities! Breakfast was simple but enough for us!


Satisfactory

3.2 on October 14, 2014

There wasn't really anything "wrong" with our stay, It wasn't exactly what the website made it out to be. It could be that we had never stayed in a bed and breakfast before and I was expecting to be welcomed enthusiastically. We had never paid this much for a room before, but since it was our anniversary we decided to splurge. I got the feeling that there main focus is on weddings. We stayed during a wedding and I almost felt intrusive, rather than welcomed. The rooms were nice and the view was lovely, probably couldn't get a better bargain for actually being right there near the riverwalk. Bed was actually very comfortable and that was a pleasant surprise. If you book here,My only advice would be to ask if they have a wedding scheduled for that weekend. Overall, satisfactory but I will not be returning, it did not meet my expectations for what I was anticipating.
