Inn on the Riverwalk

129 Woodward Place , San Antonio, TX 78204-1120 USA (Show map)


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.

Charming home and cottage on quiet street directly on the river walk. 10 min walk to the center of the restaurants and the Alamo.. We were able to bicycle south from there to visit the historic missions. Nice breakfast, eggs cooked to order, scones. Owner, Roland was very nice and friendly.

We were so excited on how close this was to the riverwalk and a number of resturants. It was a truly wonderful place to stay. The only thing that wasn't amazing, was the restroom. I thought there was a bathtub, but there was only a shower. it could have just been the room I rented though, so if that's important to you, please look it up. I love staying here and I can't wait to go back.

Inn on the RiverWalk flawless wedding

5 on September 10, 2015

The Inn on the Riverwalk, did an exceptional job on preparing and executing our wedding. The staff is fun an very sweet, and go out of their way to make sure your wedding is absolutely flawless. I am glad we picked the Inn. We went through all kinds of places before we found them. They worked with our budget, and in the end it was the best possible choice for us in San Antonio! I will never forget their hospitality, all of our guests were enamored with the staff and the building itself. They lined up the caterer, and the flowers, decorated the place perfectly. I was very impressed and highly recommend this place for any small quaint wedding!

Planned the perfect elopement wedding

5 on August 29, 2015

My partner and I planned a getaway wedding at the Inn on The Riverwalk in San Antonio . The entire event was planned over the phone from Fort Worth, so I was a little concerned with setting it all up site unseen. The staff and the Inn were just fantastic to work with, they took care of all the details for us. When we arrived we were so pleased with the character of the Inn. The main building we were told, was over 100 years old. It was well kept, clean and quiet. It sits right on the river with a fantastic view of the river and the city skyline. Our wedding was held the next morning outside on the steps to the Riverwalk. The entire staff was there to take care of every thing that need to be done. As a gay couple we were worried about being accepted. the staff treated us with all the same respect any couple would have been given. We were told that we were the first Same sex wedding since the SCOTUS ruling in June and they were very excited to be a part of it. I would especially like to thank Kathleen who I worked with to plan the event and Margaret who also helped with planning and doubled as our wedding photographer, both were there as well as other staff members to make sure everything went off perfectly.

Lovely B&B

4.8 on July 18, 2015

We loved the location of this B&B. It was quiet, beautiful and a very short walk to the main area of the river walk. The free parking is a bonus, as is the wonderful breakfasts. The building is old but that is what makes it charming. The bed (rm 13) was very comfortable and the view out the window overlooked the river. The only issue we had was locking the front door if you leave after hours. We had trouble making the code work.

Nice stay right on the river!

Overall we are glad we chose to stay at the Inn on the Riverwalk! The pros are the location--right on the riverwalk in San Antonio, but not in a noisy area. It was so quiet, and our balcony had an outstanding view of both the river and downtown. The balcony was beautiful during both day and night. Even though it is not located right in the heart of all of the action of the riverwalk, it was only a 4 or 5 block walk along the river to get to shops, restaurants, and the Alamo. One of the BEST things is that it has onsite parking, and many of the other inns don't. We parked our car and then walked to see all of the sights. We never had to worry about the downtown traffic and public parking expense. The breakfasts were very good, and the staff was friendly. A wedding was planned there one of the afternoons of our stay and I saw how hard the staff worked to make it so special and beautiful for the bride and groom. Now the only "con" that I have is that the rooms were not as clean and fresh as I would have expected. I noticed that the trim around doors and windows was old, dirty, and needed to be painted. The fixtures in the bathrooms were old and stained. And our bedspread was tired and worn looking, definitely needed to be replaced. Our friends' room had a light out and even after reporting it the light was not fixed. They also had an issue with the shower spraying water around the bathroom. However, most of these things would be an easy fix if the owner just took the time to take a close look in each of the rooms. Then what a gem this place would be! All in all, I would stay at the Inn on the Riverwalk again because of the quiet location, value and convenience to all of the sights in San Antonio.

Nice place!

My husband and I spent our 19th anniversary here for 5 nights. The ladies at the desk was very helpful with the room. Also the ladies that cooked the breakfast was friendly and excellent cooks. I highly recommend this inn.

Charming and Comfortable B&B

Our home away from home

3.4 on May 16, 2015

We love The Inn on the River Walk and have been coming there for years. The staff is so nice and the atmosphere is so homey. Plus we love being right on the River Walk. However, the inn has been becoming shabbier and shabbier over time. Everytime we come, I pull some weeds. We're so happy that a new owner has taken over. This spring things have started looking up--hot breakfasts were reinstated and some work was being done on the patio. By our next visit we hope the building itself and the rooms will be refurbished. We want to keep coming back. Nan and Chris Parson
