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.

Romantic Get Away

5 on April 16, 2014

We stayed at the Inn on the Riverwalk for our 1st Anniversary and stayed in the Cottage with the whirlpool tub, complete with rose petals on the bed and balloons upon our arrival. We booked an in room massage that was truly relaxing and wonderful! The breakfast was DELICIOUS! This inn is located down the riverwalk away from the noise so the tranquil wrap around porch was lovely to sit upon while sipping coffee or wine. The staff is very sweet, welcoming and friendly. We will definitely stay at this lovely spot again! Alisha and Michael Wilson

Quiet and reasonable, but needs a little improvement.

The location and breakfast was good, but we can't recommend to people who put importance on cleaness.

week-end stay

Great location but starting to look and feel a little tired. Breakfast was at best ok and no real attempt to be made to feel welcome.

Surprisingly Nice

I originally booked a queen room for our stay. Read some not so good reviews but when I phoned the owner took the time to explain about the older homes and not everyone cares for this. We called a week before our stay to be told they had upgraded our room to a King size bed and more room. On our way to town they called to let us know they would be gone but our key would be attached out side on the mailbox. Upon arrival we found the key and the room, at first when we got there we were concerned about the area but found it to be just fine, tucked into a corner at the end of the block. It is for sure a leisurely 10 to 15 minute walk to the edge of most things on the Riverwalk. The ladies cooking and serving breakfast were very nice and gracious. Breakfast was filling and ok , not over the top, but good and warm to start out with. I wouldn't and didn't pay attention to the negative comments. This is a nice place to stay. We stayed 3 nights. We did have a small child in the next room the 2nd night full of energy which you can hear quite nicely because of the wood floors. She did eventually settle down and was fine the next night. Everything is good here and I would stay again. Nothing on a grand scale but for sure good for the money. If you want total luxury then this is not for you then go to the Ritz.. The Inn on the Riverwalk is a perfect down south stay over night place. Thank you, we enjoyed our stay, Chris and Joe, Champlin MN

Perfectly charming and quiet

We had our 2nd stay at this lovely place Jan 13 - 15. We stayed in the main house in a room that had a separate "room" for our kids. We love how charming the house is and it is perfectly tucked away in a quiet location on the riverwalk. There isn't central heat, but each room was provided with a space heater that was sufficient to heat the room. We were also offered additional blankets if they were needed. We found the service to be amazing and the breakfast was delicious. We will certainly be back again.
