Inn on the Riverwalk

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

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.

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

All of the staff, including the owner, were very hospitable! The location was great and there was a nice variety of options for breakfast. We hope to stay here again.


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


Great place to stay!

My husband and I booked this for our anniversary this year. All the hotels downtown wanted an extra 20-50 dollars a day for parking. These guys are on the riverwalk, and just a short walk from the center of the action. They have free parking for guests. The room was great, and so were the breakfasts. We will definitely stay here if we come back to SA again.


Amazing location

2.6 on April 17, 2015

Loved the patio area nestled in the centre of the city, perfect for relaxing and taking time out from exploring. The bedroom, number 12 was a little tired, needed painting and new bed covers. Great warm welcome from host Roland, just needs a little more attention to detail to make this a higher score.


We'll be back!

My wife and I stayed here in late March. The owner said he'd just taken over about four months ago. He was quite nice and open to suggestions. The breakfast was more than sufficient. Hours were a bit confining but not horribly inconvenient. The place is easy find and right on the Riverwalk, not a long walk from the restaurant and shops. It is also close to two breweries. Highly recommend.


Nice & quiet

Location was outstanding, a short distance to the restaurants on the River Walk. The balcony was very nice to relax on in the evenings. Breakfast was wonderful.
