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.

Extraordinary Staff, Lovely Room

My husband and I decided to change the remaining 6 of our 7 night stay at the Marriott on the Riverwalk to the Inn on the Riverwalk. This proved to be such an amazing feeling! I am SO happy we did. Roland and his staff were superbly accommodating in our smooth transition. Roland was so friendly and would just chat with us on a regular basis. He made us feel so comfortable. Every morning, the breakfast was superb! The dining area was sweet and lovingly decorated. Our room itself was lovely and relaxing. I especially enjoyed the ambiance of the chandelier above the jacuzzi! I loved sitting out on the porch every day to read with the outdoor ceiling fans above for that ever-so-refreshing breeze - during the hours that were just too hot to walk around, this was heaven. And, being right on the riverwalk and far enough away from all of the noise of restaurants and crowds, it was absolutely divine. We couldn't have asked for a better location - peace and quiet, but within less than 10 minutes from the shops and restaurants, and no more than 15 minutes from King William District. It was perfect! Those 6 nights went by very quickly.:) Thank you, Roland and Staff! We will surely be staying with you again when we return to San Antonio. No doubt about it. Warmly, Stephanie N

Great location

The Inn is right on the Riverwalk, and is an easy walk to all the activities. The Inn main building needs upgrading, cracked Windows, unpainted surfaces, and is due for a paint job. The Innkeeper is a friendly sort, and his staff is great.

Enjoyed our one-night stay along the riverwalk!

Had a great stay at this quaint location along the riverwalk. At night we walked the 15 minutes or so along the river to access the many restaurants, bars, and attractions at the heart of downtown. The next morning, we took a nice run along the river in the other direction. Staff and owner were awesome, providing a delicious breakfast, great service, and helpful recommendations. Unique, highly recommended way to experience San Antonio.

Only regret is that we didn't stay longer

We got in much later than planned, but that wasn't a problem. The staff emailed me with directions. We payed a little more for the room with the view and it was well worth it. The room was cute, the service was great, and my husband and I are already planning our trip back!

Awesome Location, InnKeepers, Owner/Breakfast

Home away from home!

From the moment we arrived we were welcomed and made to feel at home. The quiet street set the tone for a great weekend. Downtown is a mere 5 minutes stroll down the River Walk. You will not be disappointed if relaxation and good company is what your looking for. Breakfast was perfection and highly recommended.

successful Birthday!

Took my wife here for her birthday 3 years ago and loved it so much we came back this year. It was even better now than before. The new owners are putting a lot of love into this B&B. The rooms are amazing and reasonably priced. 10/10 would do again
