Way Beyond Expectations

5 on April 25, 2018

Our first Bed and Breakfast experience... we are hooked! If you are looking for a comfortable, quiet location in the heart of downtown San Antonio - this is the place. The property is on a secluded quiet street away from the noise, but close enough to the action. We loved our room so much we had a hard time leaving, however, when we did, we were less than a mile to everything we wanted to do. The staff treated us very well. We enjoyed the late nights of the Riverwalk and were very grateful that the staff understood when we slept through breakfast. My husband was able to pry himself out of our comfortable pillow top bed long enough to eat breakfast one morning - he raved to me about how delicious and fresh it was. There is absolutely no other place we will even consider staying in San Antonio after we stayed here

Excellent location, hospitable owner and family

4.8 on March 15, 2018

My fiance and I stayed at the Inn last weekend for one night. It was a well appointed spot on the riverwalk within walking distance or a short Lyft to anywhere on our agenda! The breakfast in the morning was a special treat. The family that owns the bed and breakfast is delightful as well. We will definitely put it on our list of best places to stay in San Antonio!

It was beautiful home away from home me & my family had a wonderful time and we are looking forward to coming back again.

We enjoyed sitting on the front porch and talking and looking at the people walking by. And all of us would set hours on the porch. Such a great place to vocation and feel free. And the owner Roland is awesome .

Great for a getaway !!!

5 on July 30, 2017

This is a great location for walking distance to anyplace you want to visit. The breakfast is amazing! The place it self is beautiful and antique. The room we stayed in was nice and cozy with an entrance to the patio which then over looks the river walk. It was definitely worth it!!

It's Great!

Great quiet comfortable B&B and on the river. Short walk to the loop on the river where all the stores and restaurants are located. We had a party of 12 and enjoyed our happy hours on the deck. The staff is exceptionally accommodating!

Fall in love with San Antonio by staying at this Inn!

4.2 on February 14, 2017

I don't know what we loved more: meeting the Inn owner Roland and getting to know his beautiful egg-laying hens; gathering our daily dose of recommendations from resident cool artist-local expert Karen who shared more fun things to do and see than we had time in the day; or being enveloped in our daily morning breakfast hug from our darling concierge/housekeeper Margaret. Oh and the breakfasts! Each morning's creation was more tasty than the next: screamingly fresh eggs, sizzling chorizo and bacon, Texas style French toast smothered in syrup, pecans and cottage cream, fresh berries of all types. We were so satisfied after breakfast we powered through our days needing only a snack until cocktail hour! This charming bed and breakfast is as comfy as it can be, with fresh linens, brand new soft towels and great renovated baths with a standing shower in our rooms. Roland assured us that full length mirrors and extra shelving were to be installed soon. Our favorite hangout spot was on the wraparound porch, where the day's sun rose and set, sitting on lovely old rocking chairs and wrought iron benches lined with antique pillows. We took our coffee out there, our beer and wine and snacks out there, and many photos of our new favorite people at this dear sweet Inn. Choose this Inn as your lodging and you'll experience the true charm of San Antonio. We certainly did!

Perfect place for our get-away!!

5 on January 31, 2017

Chose this place for the value and was pleasantly surprised with the facility, staff, the food the EVERYTHING! Could not have been more satisfied! Look forward to returning one day!!! Thank you for a wonderful get-away!

Beautiful location. Nice, clean rooms. Great customer service & hospitality. We couldn't obtain a reservation to a nice restaurant and our host was able to secure one for us. Awesome experience. 10 stars.

Amazing Little Place

5 on January 18, 2017

So glad to have found this place! We were looking for a place to stay on the River walk and this fit right into our price range with better service than any really expensive hotel. It's located right on the River walk, but on a quieter stretch, so you can enjoy the river and not be bothered by large numbers of people walking down the River walk. The staff played with our boys and made us feel extremely welcome. The rooms were clean and newly remodeled. I was really impressed that the bath towels were the size of the ones that we have in our own home, unlike the really small ones that you typically find in hotels. Breakfast was also Absolutely Amazing!!! I'm looking forward to staying here the next time we come to San Antonio to visit.

Beautiful location but had some issues during our stay

3.6 on January 12, 2017

The location on this inn is awesome. It is right on The Riverwalk and in a quiet neighboorhood. Breakfast was delicous. We did have some issues during our stay. The window sills in our room were literally falling apart on the bottom. But the owner is renovating and I think this was a temporary issue. on our 2nd night of our stay the fire alarm in our room went off at 630 am. It then proceeeded to go off every 10 mins for literally hours. It was so high up on the ceiling, they needed a ladder to disconnect it. The staff was waiting on the owner to bring a ladder and he still had not arrived when we checked out at 11. With that being said, our one time set of issues would not deter me from staying again in the future. You really can not beat the awesome location of the inn.

We really enjoyed our stay

4.2 on January 09, 2017

It is conveniently located right off the Riverwalk just a short walk to all the ships and restaurants. The staff could not of been more nicer and welcoming, especially Roland and the ladies who run the breakfast. When we come back to San Antonio we will stay here again.

Wonderful place to stay

5 on December 30, 2016

We visited San Antonio and the Inn on the Riverwalk on December 27 and 28 and couldn't have been happier with our luck and good fortune picking it. We loved walking on the Riverwalk including sitting in on a college rally between Oklahoma State and Colorado football fans the evening we got to town. They played in a Bowl game at the San Antonio Astrodome last night. One of our hostesses, Karen Evans, who also cooked a delicious breakfast for us both mornings, is a proud San Antonio native and a wonderful source of information on where to eat in her favourite city...she not only came up with great places to eat but places to see and things to do. The owner Roland Cavazos lives on site which is always a good thing when you have a B&B business.It's just another reason we liked staying at the River Walk Inn so much. It will be one of the highlight things we remember about our stay in SA right up there with the River Walk and the Alamo and the terrific restaurant scene in the vibrant city.

Everything was fantastic!!

A Real Gem - Right on the Riverwalk

4.8 on November 16, 2016

As former B&B owners, we sincerely admire the commitment that Roland has made to this property. During our 5-day stay, we appreciated the brand-new bathrooms, air-conditioners, comfortable mattresses, and plush linens with which he has just recently updated this B&B. Roland (along with his complete staff!) were among the most accommodating hosts we have ever encountered. When we arrived early (btw which could throw some B&Bs off), we were greeted by Kathleen, a very gracious receptionist who gave us the scoop on the area. Breakfast was wonderful - served in a spacious guest area with multiple tables and always with a smile and friendly conversation. As we left, workmen were just starting to work on the outside of the property - and even they were amicable. We feel we got to know real Texans right along with our visit to the Lone Star State. We hope to return to the Inn on the Riverwalk someday to witness for ourselves other upgrades Roland has planned. He's got a real gem there!

No complaints!

Wonderful experience. Great staff and owner. Recommend highly

quiet but close to activities

5 on September 26, 2016

my hubby and I enjoyed out trip to San Antonio. We loved staying at this inn. It was cozy, quaint, on the river and a moments walk to the activities. It was a perfect quiet getaway and we are able to take a nice morning run on the riverwalk from outside our door. The staff was attentive and caring.

Enjoyed our stay

Extraordinary Staff, Lovely Room

4.6 on July 31, 2016

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

3.6 on July 28, 2016

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!

4.6 on July 02, 2016

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

4.8 on June 16, 2016

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!

5 on May 22, 2016

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!

5 on May 17, 2016

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

Great stay in a great location

4.8 on May 13, 2016

We stayed in Cottage 22 which was very comfortable with an awesome porch overlooking the river. Our host, Roland, was very friendly and personable and was quick to ensure we had everything we needed. The breakfast was delicious with plenty of food. Our only issue was that the A/C unit in the cottage was somewhat loud. We'd recommend this B & B to everyone. The location was excellent and an easy walk to the restaurants and sites on the Riverwalk.

Pleasant and calm

3.8 on May 06, 2016

I would recommend The Inn at The Riverwalk for anyone looking for a place to stay in San Antonio in this price range.We had Rm. 13 which had plenty of space for my husband and me althou the bathroom is small. The owner, Roland, is very nice, and the cook went to great lengths to meet my needs. The location is great. Be sure to walk to the flour mill and across the river in the King William area as well as all the other tourist sites.

AWESOME host, location, & stay

4.6 on May 05, 2016

Can't express enough was a great host, location, & stay we had here. Add the welcoming, comforts, food, service, & accommodations with the extas - right on the river, comfortable front & bsck porch & patio, great breakfast, & SOO much more. Thanks for making our stay soo much more memorable. We'll be back someday!

Fiesta Stay

5 on April 28, 2016

My wife and I stayed in room 24. The room was spacious and clean. Bathroom was nicely updated and the mattress was excellent. Breakfast was delicious and Carol, the cook, was delightful and attentive. Roland and his staff are wonderful hosts. Inn on the Riverwalk is in the perfect location. You will not be disappointed.


5 on April 26, 2016

Our stay was great! The staff treated us like family. The food was delicious, and the cook was so sweet! It is just minutes away from everything on the river walk. We had an amazing experience. Thank you for a great stay.

Outstanding stay

4.6 on April 26, 2016

Everything went very well, my fiance and I had a wonderful stay. The staff was thoughtful and very considerate. The room we stayed in was really cute. Yes, it was showing it's age a bit, but it didn't really detract from over all experience. A very old house with a modern Jacuzzi, best of both worlds. The little mini chandelier in the bathroom over the bathtub sets a very nice mood and perfect lighting. The location is great for what ever we wanted to do. The bed was comfortable, the breakfast, freshly cooked right there in the dining room, the ac working very well, although, personally I didn't think we needed it at the time we were there. The even went a little extra for my lady's birthday, it was something small but at the same time they took the extra 30 seconds to acknowledge it. They also provided a little extra tip when I was planning a dinner reservation, it was the icing on the cake. There is a very good possibility that we will be back. Thanks and Hugs Shadow & Kitty

On the river with a jacuzzi

4.6 on April 26, 2016

Took my wife for a suprise getaway, she enjoyed everything from the home cooked breakfast to the semi private balcony and it didn't take more than 10 minutes before she got the jacuzzi started... Those 10 minutes were filled with kisses ;)

Gem on the river

5 on April 22, 2016

Inn on the Riverwalk is a lovely oasis on the river. Within easy walking distance of the tourist area with its numerous shopping and dining options, it lies in a quiet area of the riverfront, on the edge of historic homes and buildings. Our 3rd floor room (no elevator) was spacious, comfortable and eclectically-furnished, with--not one but--TWO balconies overlooking the river. The giant bathtub with a porthole window overhead was a lovely surprise. Staff were welcoming, helpful and professional and the homemade breakfasts were amazing!

Bike Trail Access at our Door Step

4.6 on March 30, 2016

We liked the personal attention received by the owner and the staff. They wanted to be sure we lacked nothing to make our stay most enjoyable. We really liked that we could just hop on the bike trail (Riverwalk) and ride all the way to Mission Espada. The breakfasts were delicious. We definitely will come back.

I picked the most modest room - huge bed and lots of space. Good breakfast and ultra friendly owner. It's right at the River Walk without all the noise and bustle of the downtown part.

We are trying to make a yearly visit to San Antonio and really enjoy staying at the Inn on the Riverwalk. Dr. cavazos and his family are very friendly and nice. Breakfast is always amazing. Love the victory home and great location to the Riverwalk.

Spring break trip

The Inn is in a great location, has a friendly owner, great breakfasts, and comfortable rooms. We will be back.

The only place we stay in San Antonio...been coming here 8+ years

5 on March 22, 2016

We love the Inn on the Riverwalk! We've been coming on couples well as with our family when we bring the kids to San Antonio for over 8 years. We are Spurs basketball fans and this is the only place we stay when we come to town for a game. (We live NE of Houston). Excellent gourmet breakfast...excellent atmosphere...convenient location...never had a complaint here in over 8 years. Love, love, love this place!

Get away weekend

4.6 on March 22, 2016

My wife found this place and we enjoyed it so much we are already thinking of the next time we can go down and stay. The service was excellent. Breakfasts were fantastic and its location on the river walk made it easy access to everything we wanted to do and see. Can't wait for our return visit.

Hidden Treasure

4.2 on March 20, 2016

Spacious room furnished with rustic antiques. The bed was very comfortable- it was hard getting out to make breakfast at 8:30, but the mango quesadillas were worth the effort. Beautiful hard wood floors, newly remodeled bathroom with jacuzzi. The best part was our front porch overlooking the river and a short 10 minute walk to the touristy part of the river walk. Friendly Texas hospitality- can't wait to go back!

Amazing Find

4.6 on March 18, 2016

We found this place by pure accident and were lucky enough to stay for a night. The inn and cottage are beautiful both inside and outside. The street was under construction, but it was still very quiet for most of the morning. They book quickly, so if you're looking at this place, it's best to get it earlier rather than later. And the view of the review from the porch is just awesome!

Loved, loved, loved Inn on the Riverwalk!

4.8 on March 16, 2016

Our stay at the Inn on the Riverwalk was just delightful. Our check in went smoothly, and the front desk gave us so much helpful information for our stay in San Antonio. We loved the beautiful location, and took multiple walks along this quiet part of the river. The breakfasts were outstanding- so creative and delicious. The owner visited with us every day and is committed to making the inn a wonderful experience.

Beautiful Place to Stay

4.8 on March 15, 2016

My first time at a B&B. This place was great. The Innkeeper Roland even met us for our very late 11pm arrival to help us get settled. Breakfast was a delicious affair both mornings. The house is right on the river walk but far enough so that is was very peaceful and quiet. But close enough that it was only a few minutes walk to the Alamo and other hot spots in San Antonio downtown. The rooms were very clean and comfortable giving a great nights sleep. Bathrooms was newly remodeled and very clean. I would greatly recommend this the Inn on the Riverwalk to everyone.

Will come back there.

5 on March 14, 2016

We 3 ladies enjoyed our stay in the cottage overlooking the River. It was convenient to walk to the hustle and bustle of the Riverwalk, yet far enough away to have a very quiet stay. The room was comfortable with soft sheets, thick towels, comfy beds and new bathrooms. The breakfasts were delicious and the innkeeper/owner was very friendly and gave us pointers on what to see and what not miss. We will come again, for sure!

What a treasure!

4.4 on March 08, 2016

What a treat to find such a great place downtown! The service was great and the food was wonderful! There are so many attractions within walking distance. You can't find a better location. We will definitely be back!

First experience with a B&B

5 on March 05, 2016

My wife and I stayed four nights here. Our son Noah graduated US Air Force bootcamp. We had to get up early in the morning to be at Lackland Air Force for the ceremonies so we could not enjoy the breakfast they include with the stay but they sound very good. Roland the owner of the Inn was very nice and spent time talking with my wife and me on deck that is attached to the house. Very pleasant person. I would recommend staying here very quaint and Downtown San Antonio Riverwalk is minutes away. I look forward to coming back some day and visit them again. Joe and Colleen Rose

A quiet retreat!

5 on March 03, 2016

Privacy and the comforts of home while having immediate access to the Riverwalk and all the lively aspects of downtown. Great breakfast cooks! Warm friendly staff. A preferred lodging.

Lots of potential

4.6 on March 01, 2016

We had a pleasant stay. Our room was quiet and exactly what we expected. We had a great nights sleep, bed was comfortable. It appears they are in the middle of a re-model, so while the room was clean there were lots of little things, like unfinished trim, and peeling paint. and a faucet that had the hot/cold reversed. Just little things that need to be taken care of to make it spectacular! This place is located off the main river walk area, but not to far! Breakfast was super yummy and served in the cute little dining room.

had a wonderful time!

4.4 on February 17, 2016

really enjoyed our stay (our second time there ) and REALLY enjoyed meeting Roland the new owner. it's cool to actually have the proprietor close enough to come hang out with our group and feel like we made a new friend! we do this trip every couple of years and will be staying with you again!! steve Daniel

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.

Good location and the staff and owner are very friendly. They do a great job of making you feel welcome!


4.6 on September 24, 2015

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!

3.0 on June 24, 2015

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.

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!

5 on May 13, 2015

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!

4.4 on April 12, 2015

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

4.6 on April 09, 2015

Nice and quiet area on the Riverwalk.

We would stay again . . .

3.6 on April 03, 2015

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.

Spring Break at the Inn on the Riverwalk

Great Inn - Terrible Beds

4.0 on March 27, 2015

I wanted to like this Inn so very much. The staff were friendly and great, the location is perfect (close to the river walk, but far enough away to be quiet), the food was perfect, and just generally a quirky little place that is just where I like to stay while on vacation. But,the beds. Oh the beds. Two inch mattress toppers on a cheap mattress do not make for a great night's sleep. We were traveling with a 6 month old, which has it's own challenges for restful nights, and the overly soft beds made for two nights without much rest. I had to move into the twin bed in the second room (without a mattress topper) just catch some zzzs our second night. I admit I like a harder mattress, so if you don't mind a bed without any support and supper soft, then this place is for you. We stayed in room 12, and I peeked in room 11 between guests and it seems like the mattress situation is the same in every room. Really a great value, and cute little place, but for us the sleepless nights were a huge drawback. If you aren't as picky a sleeper as us, then this just might your perfect place!

Great Experience

4.8 on March 15, 2015

The experience was wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were three blocks from the main section of the Riverwalk. It was a beautiful walk. The city disappeared in this little get away. The only negative I have is that there is no heat in the cottage rooms. In the winter it is cold! They do have space heaters. I wish the jets in the huge spa bath tub had been functional for the bubble bath that night, but it was still great. Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend them. I will return there in the future if I get the opportunity.

Great Little Getaway

Enjoyable Stay

Had a nice trip to San Antonio. Inn was a quite, relaxing place to stay. Breakfasts were wonderful.

Relaxing and Romantic

5 on March 03, 2015

My boyfriend and I stayed on the 3rd floor suite for a weekend.He booked it on his own and the owner and staff helped him through it all..It was beautiful and peaceful. He asked me to marry him on the balcony overlooking the Riverwalk. What a wonderful place.. The Inn will always, always hold a very special place in our hearts! But, on to the actual stay- Our room was great, wonderful view of San Antonio's skyline and the bed was very comfortable. The staff-where do I start? They were accomadating and caring. They pointed us in to the right direction for some great spots. Try Rosario's on a Saturday night for dinner-fun and delicious. And we walked..nice touch. Breakfast was nothing short of amazing! Friday morning, "Mom" served up some yummy breakfast tacos and on Sunday, they offered an array of deliciousness from fresh fruit and yogurt parfaits to cheesy eggs...cooked fresh for every person that makes it to the breakfast room. There was a wedding and reception at the Inn on Saturday and for a second, we thought it was going to affect our stay--not at all! We just opened our balcony doors and listened to the overflow of laughter and tunes. The Inn decorated the space beautifully. I would recommend this gem to anyone wanting a romantic and nice time within walking distance to the Riverwalk's sites.

February Stay

4.4 on February 25, 2015

Stayed at the Inn for a few days while down visiting family. The location was great with Riverwalk access right outside of the Inn. There was a slight walk to get to the "populated" area of the Riverwalk, but the quiet nature of this portion was pleasant.

Pleasant and well located B & B

4.2 on February 24, 2015

This is a cozy B & B that needs a little updating. It would have been wonderful for the little porch area of our room to have some chairs to sit in instead of the extra 2 twin beds. There really wasn't a place to just chill out with a glass of wine anywhere except outside and it was too cold. Staff is very pleasant and breakfasts were cooked each morning. The location was excellent. Bathroom was very small and there was no place to hang a towel.

Excellent stay on the River Walk

4.8 on February 24, 2015

This was the first time I was in San Antonio and I reserved this hotel on line with no input from anyone. I read some of the reviews and became a little nervous, but I was genuinely thrilled with my stay. The Inn is directly on the River Walk but off the beaten path. It is still within walking distance of the shops and restaurants without the disturbances of the crowds. The first morning there, we had complimentary room service for breakfast. The remainder of the days we had breakfast in the dining room. The breakfast was freshly made with eggs, toast, ham (most days), and fresh fruit. Coffee, juice, and cold cereals were also available. The inn keeper spoke with us nearly every day. The room was clean and spacious with a private bathroom and a porch we could sit on to people watch. We were also in proximity to rental bikes and spent one day riding along the River Walk to the missions. It was a great place to stay and it promises to get even better with some of the ideas of the new owner.

Perfect location on the River Walk

4.0 on February 18, 2015

The Owner and Staff helped make this a great stay. The rooms are comfortable and quaint. Breakfast is good, but the location to the River Walk is what gives this B&B the edge. If you like to walk or run, this place is in the perfect spot to either hit the Restaurants and Bars or to just walk by the coolest section of beautiful vegetation and the King William area of San Antonio with the most stunning homes in town. We are coming back.

February stock show

5 on February 17, 2015

It was a very lovely room and very friendly staff Great view and very relaxing stay.we had long days at the stock show and it was nice to come and be able to soak in the big tub.

Great location

3.0 on January 02, 2015

this B&B is in a great location. Park the car in their parking lot and then walk to all the main sites in San Antonio - the Riverwalk, The Alamo, The Mall to name a few. The bed was comfortable, and the room was clean. The whole place could do with a programme of maintenance, refresh of paintwork and repair to some of the woodwork. Breakfast was good; I especially liked the pancakes with syrup. I would stay here again.

Family get away

3.8 on January 01, 2015

Staff was very friendly, breakfast was delicious Thank you


3.8 on December 22, 2014

This Inn has the best location on the Riverwalk, for privacy, and accessibility. Located on the tail end of the main Riverwalk, you have a nice ten minute walk to everything. On a Friday night you want to be away from the hustle and bustle at 3 am. We stayed in Spa 17, room was clean but dated, Bed was comfy though.

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

5 on November 18, 2014

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.

Inn on the River Walk

3.0 on November 18, 2014

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


5 on November 17, 2014

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

4.2 on November 03, 2014

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

4.4 on October 20, 2014

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!


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.

Amazing time!

4.8 on October 09, 2014

My mom & I really enjoyed our stay! The inn was gorgeous! It truly felt like home away from home! The icing on the cake was the wonderful staff! Will be staying at the Inn again whenever we visit San Antonio!

I was referred to Inn on the Riverwalk by a friend who had stayed there. My husband and I booked one night midweek. Our room was neat with a great view of city skyline, trees and the river. a comfortable bed and great water pressure in our shower. Our stay was peaceful and quiet and we look forward to going back.

A View of the River Walk

4.2 on August 15, 2014

Stayed 2 nights and enjoyed every minute


3.6 on August 04, 2014

We wanted a nice n relaxing place while on vacation and we found it. We love the homey feeling, tranquility and the view of the riverwalk. The room smelled fresh n clean but needs a deep cleaning (like the fan and bedframe). The staff was great! They aimed to please. The Inn is far enough from the noise but close enough to walk to the noise. We enjoyed ourselves and if we go back to San Antonio we will definitely stay here.

Great value with groupon offer

4.0 on August 01, 2014

We just stayed here for a two night stay. The free breakfast was very good for a cold breakfast. Lots of pastries (fresh) to choose from. Fresh oj and coffee. We had the hot breakfast day two and it was hot when we got it and was good. Yes you can eat somewhere else for the same price but it was nice to have it brought to your room. We stayed in cottage 23 and we sat outside with our breakfast looking at the river. The inn is older but not where I was disappointed in it, just felt like a older home. Walking distance from everything downtown and river walk. Down quite street where it was peaceful and privet. The staff was more then friendly. Great B&B experience and would recommend staying here even more so if you get a groupon special!

Enjoyable stay in San Antonio

3.6 on July 29, 2014

This was just what we needed. By the time we got our bearings of the area and the riverwalk we were very happy to be on the "calm end" of the riverwalk. It was peaceful yet close enough to the everything that we could be "touring" within minutes. Highly recommend the Inn on the Riverwalk.

Worth the time and money

4.0 on July 19, 2014

I have stayed at the Inn several times and even had my wedding there. I have never been disappointed with the service or the rooms. They have changed their services in the last few years, but still worth the time and money.

great location. great staff. very helpful and friendly.

3rd of July

3.0 on July 08, 2014

The location was outstanding; however, a section of the river walk that leads back to the inn is closed at night and you have to "go up to street level" to get back. It can be a bit confusing. The room was ok, but a bit ran down. Bed adequate but not spectacular. All in all a good deal if you want to be near the main river walk without having to pay the high prices of the big chains.

Initiation to the Riverwalk

3.0 on June 24, 2014

Great access to the riverwalk. One suggestion is to have a protein source available at breakfast such as hardboiled eggs.

Good place to stay

3.8 on June 13, 2014

The staff was very friendly and considerate from my initial inquiry to the time we checked out. We stayed one night. Upon arrival we were very pleased to come to a quiet dead end road right on the Riverwalk. The location is fantastic! Our room was lovely; the air conditioner however, was quite loud and challenged our sleep. It did keep the room plenty cool. We had hoped for more protein at breakfast (eggs, peanut butter or meat). Breakfast was mostly muffins, bread and other pastries. We would like to go back and stay at the Inn on the Riverwalk and continue exploring San Antonio.

Stay at the Inn on the Riverwalk

4.2 on June 08, 2014

We stayed at the inn on 06-04-2014. Our room was clean and the view from the front porch was wonderful. We walked down to the Alamo and to the downtown portion of the Riverwalk. Tina at the front desk was the best. She gave us great ideas of where to visit, this made our trip much more enjoyable. The breakfast was good, it was a cold breakfast but they had several opptions. Overall we would definitely recommend The Inn to friends and family.

Quiet Location

3.2 on June 04, 2014

This is an older in tucked away on the quiet end of the Riverwalk. My two favorite things about the stay were breakfast on the balcony (we brought ours up to our room) and ate on a quiet Sunday morning and the Innkeeper. I wish I could remember his name but he was very sweet and the breakfast was just delicious! I don't really feel like it was worth the value - we go to B&B's all the team in Fredericksburg and I can get a much nicer room for the same price, if not cheaper.

Best Bed & Breakfast experience for honeymoon.

4.6 on June 01, 2014

My wife and I came here for our honeymoon and stayed in the Penthouse suite. It had the most beautiful view of San Antonio that we could imagine. The staff was extremely friendly and the breakfast in bed package is a must do! We look forward to staying here again for one of our anniversaries. Thanks!

Wonderful getaway stay on the riverwalk

5 on May 29, 2014

I loved my stay at the bed and breakfast. The convenience and easy walking distance to all the action on the riverwalk was perfect. Just close enough to walk but yet also just far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of your own special retreat and piece of the riverwalk. The Inn has beautiful, nicely furnished and decorated rooms that are comfortable and inviting. Some of the rooms even have walk out balconies to enjoy breakfast and morning coffee overlooking the water. You get a very "at home" feel as soon as you walk through the doors. I would definitely recommend the inn for a romantic getaway for two, girls weekend trip, or just a relaxing retreat out of town for one. Thanks to the owner and the staff for an amazing stay, will definitely be returning in the future! - Kelly

Anniversary visit trip

2.6 on May 27, 2014

This was a getaway for our anniversary, when we arrived it was apparent that the facility is in need of repairs both inside and out. The staff was very friendly, the breakfast was very good. We opted for the roses, wine and chocolates. The roses were a very nice touch and took my wife's breath away. As far as the wine and chocolates I would have expected a better selection of chocolates and wine. The room was comfortable and the view from the 3rd floor was beautiful. The place is nice, but don't expect the Ritz, the pictures on the website are somewhat deceiving. I would go back; however, I don't think I would spend the extra money for the "3rd floor" with the wine, chocolate and roses options.

We'll be back

5 on May 27, 2014

This was our best experience by far with a bed and breakfast. The staff was warm and helpful, the accommodations were outstanding, and the dining was first class. It so happened that it rained during part of our stay. There's something wickedly romantic about standing on a balcony, overlooking the San Antonio river, sharing a bottle of wine and watching others scatter to get out of the weather. Seriously, folks, this place is charming and comfortable and deserves your attention. Don't pass up the opportunity to stay here. We'll make it a point to. -Darrell and Dawn Maloney-

Wonderful location

3.2 on May 06, 2014

This is a wonderful, relaxing place to stay - especially if you have a group. Our porch faced the Riverwalk and was the gathering place for our group. This is a short walk to the main portion of the Riverwalk - which is a positive in my mind - you are just far enough away from the main portion to have some peace and quiet! The staff was very accommodating and helpful with directions and places to eat and visit. I would definitely stay here again.

Much better than staying at a hotel.

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.

2.4 on April 08, 2014

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

week-end stay

3.4 on April 08, 2014

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

4.2 on February 15, 2014

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

5 on January 18, 2014

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.

Love it!

4.8 on January 03, 2014

We stayed here for this New Year s Eve...Great location! Quiet, quaint, the staff and breakfast were awesome...definitely will be back...Thank you...

Perfect for family get-togethers

4.0 on January 02, 2014

We had three families that stayed on the second floor (rooms 13, 14, 15) It was the perfect setting for our group that included small children. The location was just right for walking to the more touristy area but still far enough away to escape the crowds. Joe and the rest of the staff were very accommodating and pleasant. The only suggestion I have would be more places for storage (ex. drawers or shelves). The bathrooms were extremely tiny and most of our toiletries had to be outside in the room. (Nothing we couldn't work around but was inconvenient). I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to someone who needs a place for a group to meet and enjoy themselves.

My Favorite B&B

4.8 on December 30, 2013

I have stayed at this B&B four times. I recommend it to everyone who says they are traveling to San Antonio. I feel like I'm staying at my grandmother's home instead of an impersonal hotel room. The location is perfect and I enjoy the view from the balcony. While you enjoy breakfast on the deck, you are overwhelmed with how serene your surroundings are. I will be back!

worst stay

1.0 on December 09, 2013

stayed there dec.6 and it was the worst stay ever. we had to take a cold shower and they dont tell that there is no central heat, it was very cold in that house. all they provide you with is a small heater. we checked in late and had to wait an hour in the cold for someone to call us and no one ever did and we had to keep calling. they dont tell you anything. I will never stay or recommend anyone there. what a waste of money it was for us.

A great place!

4.4 on December 03, 2013

We stayed over this past Thanksgiving weekend....we were in the penthouse up on \the 3rd floor....great view with two balconies ...very private up there....the room was large and comfortable...the bath had a jacuzzi...the bath was spacious...the Inn is located about a 10-15 minute easy walk to the River Walk.. if we are in San Antonio again, we'll stay at the Inn....did I mention the complementary breakfast?...very nice and convenient...John H.

We had the Honey Moon Suite. It was lovely. We used the balconies for photos. Every service we requested was just right. The food catered for the wedding was really great. Everything was wonderful!

Perfect stop

4.6 on August 03, 2013

This was a perfect stop on our cross country trip. Great location right off I-10, and within walking distance to the Riverwalk area. The room was so cute and quiet. Breakfast good and service was very nice. I would definatly stay here again.

Didn't want to leave!!!!!

5 on July 25, 2013

My Trip to Texas was for my 17 and 20 year old kids to attend a convention in Austin. I researched The River Walk and found the Inn's website. The 4th of July was the best we've seen. We sat in front of the main house watching the fireworks. The room was comfortable and felt better then home. The staff was was amazing and was there for us for all needs. Breakfast: awesome. I did not want to leave. Unfortunately the kid's convention in Austin was the top reason for the trip. The hotel we stayed in the city..... no comparison (yuck). I loved that the bed and breakfast. It was on the Riverwalk but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of tourists. Thank you to the staff! Loved it. :)

Celebrate retirement

4.8 on June 12, 2013

After retirement we planned a road trip from Florida out west through all the states ending in Montana and back across to Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina and back home. Staying at the Inn on the Riverwalk in San Antonio was a true delight. We fully enjoyed it. Beautiful location, clean, quiet, the innkeepers were friendly and very accommodating. Wish we could go back tomorrow, but will certainly be back.

Birthday weekend

4.8 on June 12, 2013

My fiancé and I came to San Antonio for his birthday and found out about the inn online. We stayed in cottage 27 and absolutely loved it! The room was very clean and extremely private. The breakfast was delicious! The eggs and hashbrowns were very well seasoned and the French toast and pancakes were wonderful. We also enjoyed the fresh fruit bowl. The breakfast definitely exceeded our expectations. Staff were very friendly. And it is only about a 15 minute walk to the heart of the riverwalk! I would recommend everyone to stay here!

Romantic Getaway

It was close enough to the main part of the riverwalk yet enough distance away for peaceful quiet when we wanted it. Great place and nice people working there.

Our stay at The Inn on the Riverwalk

5 on May 14, 2013

We stayed in cottage number 24 and our friends stayed in cottage 22. We were all very happy with our rooms, the food etc. The people are very friendly and eager to help and please. I only drink decaf coffee which is hard to find in San Antonio but they went out of their way to make me some on the first morning and the next two mornings there was decaf coffee waiting for me. Lovely place to stay.

Dream Wedding

5 on May 01, 2013

My husband and I got married here two weeks ago. I found the Inn when I was looking for affordable all inclusive wedding destinations. I could not believe the price for an all inclusive wedding! It was so affordable! Tina, the wedding coordinator, was amazing. She was always cheerful and accommodating. I know they do weddings every weekend but she made it so perfect. It was completely stress free. The entire staff at the Inn were wonderful on the wedding day. We stayed on the top floor. The room was beautifully decorated and very clean. I expected the floor to creak or to hear other guests but it was sooooo quiet. The room had two private balconies. It was the perfect place to sit and unwind at the end of the day. We stayed two days here and then went to the Crockett Hotel, it was awful! We really wished we had stayed our last day at the Inn. A huge thanks to the entire staff at the Inn. We are hoping to be back for our anniversary trip next year! Kristen (Silvers) Garrett

Run, don't walk, away from booking with this inn!

1.2 on April 24, 2013

For a recent 4 night girl's getaway, we picked this inn for the location, rate & pictures. Pictures well staged or from a previous owner. Arrived in the evening, pre arranged with staff. No porch lights on for our arrival; made reading the intro letter & code for key pad difficult! Room 13 is very tired. Twin bed had no sleeping pillow or blanket. Worst part was pulling back the cover to find that the bed had been used by a previous guest. Slept that night wrapped in the only blanket we could find in dusty armoire. The queen bed had no blanket; found one in an open guest room. Queen had a plastic cover on the mattress under the thin sheet; uncomfortable & noisy. Removed the next day by request plus got a new blanket. There were no drawers, so no unpacking; requested luggage racks & got one; second arrived next day. Armoire had 3 plastic hangers. Windows did not open; paint peeling & chipped on bath & bedroom walls/woodwork. Interior appearance of the inn is the same. Deferred maintenance is a huge issue at this inn. Tiny bath wouldn’t be an issue if clean & sparkly. Mold on the floor in front of shower was disgusting. Shower a joke; faucet was laden with calcium; no fan for moisture. Bath door closed/opened with a yank. Big bottles of cheap shampoo & conditioner. No robes or make up mirror. By the twin, only light in the space was on the fan with a pull cord; I had to stand on my toes to reach it. Fan dirty & creaky. Dining room: No table cloths & not set; silver & napkin rolled up on the counter. No decor first day; last 3 days tired paper flowers for fiesta. Pre made: eggs in a warming tray which staff microwaved with cheese after selection of side dish; French toast, pancakes set out for help yourself service. Coffee was awful (we’re from the west); powdered creamer. Never saw the owners, only staff during day. Unusual refund policy. Couldn’t afford to lose pre payment, so we stayed. The location is ideal & staff friendly.

The room was great , my room had a great view :) the breakfast was great the staff was wonderful

We Totally Enjoyed our Stay!!

3.4 on April 10, 2013

The Inn was recommended by a co-worker that stays every time she travels to San Antonio. Our experience was wonderful. The room was nice and homey, breakfast was good and short walk to the main portion of the river walk. Free parking. When we arrived I had apparently not booked right online for their gas saver promotion, but was told that if I check back in the next morning a manager would be able to credit me. We stopped in the next morning and as we were told the manager credited the gas saver promotion for me to my card. I am looking forward to going back again as it's been since 2011 when we were there. I recommend the Inn to everyone that I know is planning a trip to San Antonio. Will be going back this summer hopefully

Beautiful stay, beautiful location

4.2 on April 08, 2013

Dear Inn Staff, We so much appreciate all the hard work you do to keep this place beautiful, there must be so much to do on such an old building. But your location is PERFECT - just a couple mins walk to everything, and on the most calm and beautiful part on the Riverwalk to stay. The family and I had a wonderful visit resulting in a perfect vacation. The food at the breakfast was lovely and we were so pleased with the service and kindness of all the staff. We already planned to come back next year. Thank you.

So much fun for a Girls Weekend!

5 on April 07, 2013

We decided to have a “girls weekend” in San Antonio at the spur of the moment. This location was ideal. We walk everywhere this weekend. Its also tucked back in a quiet secluded part of downtown. We definitely want to come back…. This time with our significant others ;-)!

Great R&R

5 on April 07, 2013

The Inn on the Riverwalk is like a home away from home... If you need some down time away from the hustle & bustle from everyday life... The Inn on the Riverwalk is just what you need to relax & unwind. JMG San Antonio, tx

Love Nest

5 on April 06, 2013

Love the location - we have stayed here several times over the years and the staff are always so helpful and friendly. We call it our Home Away From Home whenever we want to get away for a few days for a romantic weekend. It's a great location downtown with easy walking distance to EVERYTHING! ....breakfast was yummy too!"

Not like what you see online

2.8 on March 27, 2013

The rooms are way smaller than they appear on the site. Just a room with a bed small tv and bathroom. Great size tub! It was cozy but not worth the five hundred dollars spent for two nights. Easy access to the river walk night life. But for the amount of money spent we could of gotten something better right in the heart of the entertainment.

Riverwalk Vacation

4.6 on March 22, 2013

We stayed in Cottage 22. It was right on the Riverwalk. We just walked out of the cottage and down the steps, about 10 minutes to the heart of the Riverwalk. You can also hail a water taxi as well. The room was clean, had coffee pot and fridge, hair dryer and plenty of room for belongings. We were able to sit out in the shared wrap around porch and enjoy the morning. We didn't eat at the inn, except to grab some coffee. That's just because there are so many great places to eat, we already had our meals planned out. The staff was very helpful, too. We loved our stay, and hope to stay there again soon.


1.8 on March 12, 2013

This is an old Victorian home and is truly Victorian and a little run down. The beds were the best part of our stay. The bathroom was not up to my standards for clean. Breakfast was O.K. but nothing to brag about. T.V. was very small and not many channels but at least it did have one! we were on the River but you a several blocks from the action. In my opinion way over priced for what you get.

Good time at the RiverWalk B&B

4.6 on March 11, 2013

This older B&B is directly on the river, a twenty minute walk from the busy area... and yet quiet, clean, and well run. The rooms are not large but not small either, many with a porch with small table and 2-4 chairs, a good place for snacks and drinks. The breakfast is delicious, offered on time, and friendly folks serve you. We will certainly return to the Inn on the Riverwalk!

Old but Charming

4.2 on March 06, 2013

We stayed for a week-end at this charming B&B, the location is excellent, just a short walk to the Alamo and the Riverwalk. We stayed in the Traditional 11, although the room was old it was clean and comfortable. The staff and very nice and our breakfasts were excellent. We used groupon and had no issues in doing so. We would definitely visit again.

Mini Vacation for two

4.4 on February 22, 2013

We went on a groupon special. The staff were great. Loved the room and the view.

Pleasant Stay

A very relaxing weekend. Beautiful area on river. Beds are Comfortable, outstanding breakfast. Charles & Marianne

Not recommended

1.8 on February 09, 2013

I cannot recommend staying here. Our bed wasn’t conducive to sleeping or anything else. It was a 30year old mattress with a 2inch foam topper. The pillows were basically the pillow case. We stayed one of our three nights. When my wife and I woke up in the morning, not very well rested, neither of us wanted to stay. We didn’t even want to take a shower we just left. Light switches and or lights didn’t work. Coffee pot didn’t work, noticed it wasn’t plugged in, plugged it in and it still didn’t work. Found the collection of extension cords on the ground, unplugged the lamp, plugged in the coffee pot and it finally worked. (Not what I paid for). The bathroom had an oversized tub that required a step stool to get in. The grout around the tub was all cracked and peeling away, it appeared clean, but wasn’t inviting at all. All In all the property wasn’t in good shape. I asked for a refund and was told a manager would call me, that did not happen. I am very disappointed with the overall experience and if the y are hell bent on keeping my money I would only ask that they buy a mattress and some pillows.


2.6 on February 08, 2013

We stayed last weekend at a great low price for our Traditional Room 14. I was very disappointed in the presentation and quality of our room ( tiny, rickety wicker table with a bizarre lamp on one side of the bed, thin bed cover and sheets, an armless fabric office chair on wheels at the wood desk and our remote control to the old TV didn't work.) We told the front desk about it the next day, but it STILL did not work the second night In the bathroom, the toilet paper holder was broken and sitting on the commode back. This was fixed on Saturday without our saying anything. There were cigarette burn marks on the sink and of the two bath towels, one was not a bath towel, but a harder style, like a bath mat. The window air conditioner was dusty and dirty. The breakfast food was very basic with cold french toast or pancakes on the buffet and no indication of how to eat it hot. I asked the pleasant serving woman to re-heat it in the microwave and she was happy to do it. There were coffee grounds in my cup. But, we did really appreciate the Christian music playing, the to-go cups for coffee, and the all-access to this area for water and seating. We especially enjoyed the patio off this area since we didn't have one for our room. I was so surprised they had NO seating area like a living or family room for guests. Other pluses were the location within walking distance to downtown and other areas for shopping and eating. The Riverwalk outside the home is well kept and beautiful; the views depend on your room. The area felt safe enough despite occasional homeless people. The front desk woman was nice and helpful and surprised us with breakfast in bed since it was our anniversary. The Inn itself was probably the saddest thing. This beautiful old home is falling apart.

Definitely worth a return stay!!

4.4 on January 29, 2013

I stayed here for a mini high school reunion recently and was very pleasantly surprised at how "cute" the accomodations were. The staff was very welcoming and helpful and the location was within walking distance of may attractions. The Inn does need a few updates here and there but they have maintained the charm of the B&B with the original wood flooring and antique and vintage decor. The beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was good. My only regret was that we didn't discover this place soon enough to reserve all of the rooms for our event. I would definitely stay here again!!

Excellent Stay

4.4 on January 15, 2013

It was our 10th wedding anniversary and this was our first time at a B&B The staff was fantastic and very helpful with navigating through San Antonio for us being 1st timers. The house had a certain charm about it and our room was excellent. We were within walking distance of everything. When we go back for another visit, there are no doubts of where we will be staying again.

Weekend getaway in walking distance of all river walk activities

4.4 on January 01, 2013

My husband and I spent a weekend here for a little getaway, and it is a very cute place within walking distance of all the restaurants and shops on the river walk, or the King Williams district walking the other way. Breakfast was excellent, and service great.

Great Location and value!

3.2 on November 20, 2012

We stayed in 2 rooms at the cottage. Great Location to enjoy San Antonio! Clean and a good value.

Awesome Romantic Get a Way

5 on November 02, 2012

I brought my girlfriend here for a birthday surprise and my expectations were exceeded!! The owner of the Inn provided a beautiful flower arrangement for my girlfriend and she was totally blown away by the kind note and flowers. The room was great and the breakfast was super yummy! Thumbs Up for the Inn on the Riverwalk! Thanks Scott and Johanna for a memorable stay.

Awesome Place

5 on October 25, 2012

My husband and I have stayed here a few times...we love the great view all different sides and it is close to everything from shopping to lunch and dinner. I recomd the stay to anyone. To all people who have wrote a bad review they must have issues because I see nothing wrong with this hotel. Thank you Tina and staff

A great Mini-moon overall

3.2 on September 28, 2012

We received a call on our way nto say they closed the office at 5pm, but our key would be in an envelope out front on the mail box. I was scared we would not have something we needed and no one to provide it. As it was we were fine. They had weddings both nights we stayed, which was not a problem the first night as we went out, but the second night they had the reception outside our room and we were trying to have a quiet romantic night on the porch. They shut them down at 9:30pm, so it was not a complete failure. We even danced to a song. The food was good, though not great. Also, going through this website did not allow me to order breakfast in bed, which is an option for $20 more. The location could not have been better!!! and the main house river side porch is worth the money.

Perfect Get Away!

5 on August 30, 2012

We had a girls get away a the perfect place. We booked the cottage acroos the street stayed on the wrap around porch to catch up. Had an home cooked breakfast everyday. The staff was so helpful with planning our 4 day adventure. Even help us with packed lunches for our trip to the lake. While we stayed there we got a chance to see one of the Weddings. TRuly breath taking. You get all you need in this one bed and breakfast. Look no where else this is the place.... I am now planning a christmas trip back with my family.

LOVE the INN on The River Walk !!!

5 on August 22, 2012

We had a wonderful youth group retreat at the INN on the River walk in San Antonio!! First of all the reservation was so easy to make via email and the FREE Parking, Wi-Fi and Full breakfast won our group over right away. The front desk staff greeted us with a big smile and told us about all the attractions in the area as well as providing us with marked city maps!! We arrived early so we parked and started our sightseeing right away. The Inn called when our rooms were ready and waiting for us just a few hrs later!! Our group was on a budget so we really enjoyed hosting a pizza party on the back patio of the INN with a perfect view of the river & hemisphere park tower. The rooms were comfortable and the decor was very cozy. Our group felt right at home and secure. We got a good nights rest and started our day off with a full breakfast (fruit, french toast, eggs, bean taquitos, cereal...juice coffee..great service) then packed up to finish our visit to the Alamo city. The Inn allows guests to check out at 11 am but keep vehicles parked in their lot until 2pm for extra time to sight see.-that saves between $7-12 in parking elsewhere near attractions. The Inn also offers special discount on area attractions as well so be sure to ask about those as well!! Over all we rate the in a 10 on a scale of 1-10!! We recommend this B & B to families, couples and especially groups!! --- Sincerely L Mclean

Great place to stay in San Antonio

4.2 on July 31, 2012

We enjoyed our stay and loved the breakfasts. Best eggs I can remember and a good variety of breakfast choices in addition to the hot plate. The porch was great with a nice view of the Tower of the Americas and the River Walk. Very close to all the action on the River Walk. Comfy bed and pillows. We would stay there every time we are in San Antonio.

Cute B&B on the riverwalk but needs attention

2.4 on June 06, 2012

My husband & I stayed at the Inn on the Riverwalk 05/25-05/28 in cottage # 23 (with the murphy bed). It was out first time to stay at a B&B and it was a little dissapointing. The attention to detail was lacking. The light globe over the bathroom sink was broken and one light bulb was out, the bathroom wallpaper was peeling at rolling at all of the seams, the murphy bed has lights in the top (which I never figured out how to turn on) and had two differnt type light bulbs ( one was a night light style & the other was a regualr bulb), The artwork in our room was very cheap with frames that could not have cost more than a few dollars from Wal-Mart. The bedding was old and nappy-had a rough texture from being laundered so much and was in need of replacement and finally the A/C unit did not work properly. It would not cycle on and off so you were either freezing cold or hot and had to keep adjusting it manually to get it to shut off or turn on. There was a hand written note on the A/C unit stating the unit was old....Housekeeping did come in the first morning but we didn't see them again on the following two days. We had two packets of coffee for the entire weekend. W also never saw the owners or Inkeeper's. There were two weddings during our stay amd we never saw them for those events either. The breakfst was good although, we only had breakfast on the first day. The outside of the homes needed a lot of attention as well. Little things like the ceiling fans on the porches were full of insects and dirt in the globes and could really see it when the lights were turned on. There was a lot of peeling paint and broken path lights in the flower beds. Again, it was very dissapointing as this was a gettaway we really looked forward to.

Lovely place

My husband and I wanted a cozy place to stay in San Antonio for our Honeymoon. We were very pleased with the Inn on the Riverwalk. It was quiet, and did not have all the noise like you might find at other locations on the Riverwalk. The breakfast (and staff) were Awesome! We are seriously thinking about returning for our 1st year Anniversary. Mr. & Mrs. Robinson

Perfect River Getaway

5 on May 02, 2012

The Inn on the Riverwalk is one of the best kept secrets in San Antonio. The staff is GREAT. The breakfast is wonderful. Short walking distance to all you need. Don't miss this if you plan to come to San Antonio. Beats the heck out of noisy, stuffy hotels.

Wonderful stay!

4.4 on April 15, 2012

My fiancee and I hadn't been to San Antonio before. This was a wonderful find!! Very quiet and close to everything. The room was perfect and the staff very polite and friendly. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend!! Chad & Lisa

Old doesn't have to mean dirty

1.6 on April 10, 2012

We stayed at this B&B over 8 yrs ago and it was clean and convenient. In the years past it seems our room we stayed in has been let go- The bathroom was filthy- not just dirt but mold around baseboards and the wallpaper was yellowed, stained, and peeling off the walls. The wooden floors had dirt and grit residue- The in room fridge wasn't working well so I check the plugs- only to find what looked like an extreme fire hazard- there were extension cords running all ove the room with duct tape on them and more than three items plugged in and run all over. It did not look like it would pass an inspection.

Nice weekend getaway

3.4 on February 14, 2012

We stayed here the weekend before Valentine's. It was a great get away. The house itself could use some TLC but we were very comfortable and the staff made us feel right at home!!

Personable Service

Margaret and Tina definately went out of their way to ensure that we enjoyed our stay to celebrate our 1 year anniversary and recent engagement. The breakfast was delicious and we certainly enjoyed the great view. The garden room was certainly unique and we had a great time on our weekend getaway. Emily and Dustin Austin, TX

Anniversary getaway

3.8 on January 22, 2012

The Inn on the Riverwalk was a great place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The location is on the river but, not the crowded area. It was a nice walk to the restaurants and night life of the river walk. The receptions recommended a great restaurant in the King William district, Rosarios. The food was exceptional as was their prices. The inn is an old house, the bathrooms are small but, more than adequate. The patio was nice and would be a great place to sit, relax and enjoy the view in the spring or fall.

A special place for now and always ....

5 on December 30, 2011

We actually not only stayed at the Inn, but held our wedding there. We couldn't have chosen a better place with staff that was beyond excellent. This wedding was arranged from as far away as Europe (where the bride was stationed), to our nation's capital ( where the groom was stationed), to San Antonio where Tina Gonzales, Erin her assistant, Margret one of the many staff members, Maria the day cook, the wonderful chef that cooked our wedding dinner, John our bartender, Jesse the DJ, Johanna the officiant, and the other great staff members made this an event to remember for all of us. If you are looking for place that will cater to your every need, look no further. The place is such a jewel just as bed and breakfast alone that you will want to return year after year as we have already made plans to do so. We can not begin to explain what a fantastic job the Inn and the staff did to make our day so extraordinary. From the smallest touches of arranging the decor, to helping us get welcome baskets for the guests staying at the Inn, this venue is truly a jewel and a very special place. As a bed and breakfast, this place is a find indeed! A stone's throw from numerous places to visit in the downtown area, great service, and real home away from home!

RR indeed

5 on November 22, 2011

this was where we spent our first night together when my husband came home on RR from Afghanistan. It was more than i expected. The staff are so accommodating and will to service. Our place was quiet and away from noisy downtown. our porch viewed the Riverwalk and so we took a stroll one morning to King William district. The roses in the room were so beautiful that i took them with me everywhere! Breakfast was delicious and i was sad when we had to check out. We didn't get to honeymoon after the wedding so this definitely made up for that. i would stay there again and highly recommend that you do too!

Comfortable lodging in a great location

3.0 on November 03, 2011

The Inn was very warm and casual; certainly not fancy. The accomodations were comfortable and the staff very friendly and helpful. Location is very close to the major Riverwalk activity scene, but still in a quiet area itself.

Memories for a Lifetime

4.6 on October 29, 2011

Our Reunion was a group of older Ladies.....internet Friends who try to get together every other year. Nine states represented...even Alaska. After a year of planning, we got together for a wonderful weekend. The Inn bent over backwards to make sure we had Memories of a Liftetime! Every member of the staff did everything they could to make sure we were comfortable and request was to great. No matter what your occasion, you have to stay at the Inn on the Riverwalk!

October 1st Wedding!

4.8 on October 06, 2011

We could not have asked for a better place to get married than the Inn on the River Walk! Perfect is not a word we use often but it applies here. Everything was top notch, including Tina and Erin, our coordinators. It truly was the best day of our lives due to the amazing service, great views, cute house and proximity to the riverwalk. We felt really taken care of. We would recommend The Inn On The River Walk to anyone as a place to get married or even just for a vacation. We will be back!

Not exactly has "homey" as I expected.

2.4 on September 23, 2011

Location is awesome, especially for the price. The breakfast was nothing special--I had expected from my stays at other B&Bs that it would be more gourmet. This was not. There wasn't a stove in the kitchen if that tells you anything about the breakfast quality. (Eggs seemed like they were the type from the large restaurant container where they just microwave them.) Also breakfast was essentially the same both days on the weekend. Also, the first I'd seen in a B&B was a tip jar to tip the woman who put your food on a plate. (I guess she cooked too.) To be fair, she was not the owner, so perhaps she's not paid well, but for the quality of the breakfast, and that we didn't get it served in our room, I felt like the amount we were paying was already quite adequate without the staff asking for additional tips just for putting food on our plate. (We bussed our own table both days.) This place was not at all homey. Unlike other B&Bs, we didn't meet the owners nor did they appear particularly involved. (To be fair, I think the woman who owned it was there briefly on Saturday--to tend to a couple of newlyweds--I guess my husband, friend, and I wern't spending enough money there to have either of the owners stop by and say hi.) The management, check in, cooking, etc. was done by other people. It wasn't the nice, sit-down-for-breakfast-and-get-to-know-people type of place. Check-out was the girl at the desk throwing our keys into a bowl on the desk. She didn't even say thank you. I thought our bed was clean, although my friend who had 2 other beds to choose from in the room, said that it appeared that the sheets on both beds hadn't been changed--she found hairs all over the sheets.

Inn on the Riverwalk

4.6 on August 10, 2011

My husband and I stayed a night in June and we got the $99 special. We got the third floor room with Jacuzzi. It was lovely and the view was awesome and it's great to relax on the porch with coffee int he morning. So convenient for a lovely morning walk.We only wish we had more time to stay in San Antonio. Well maybe next year we will.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Inn.

Great Place to Stay!!!

We loved staying here. The room was nice, big and clean. Porch access on the river was great. They even let me use the gas saver promotion even though I didn't book it right on the website. (i apparently over looked it or something) They still let me use the promotion! Thanks guys! Highly recommend and will be coming back! Steph and Gary, Azle TX

Inn on the Riverwalk

4.0 on June 26, 2011

My wife and I stayed here for our 10 year anniversary. The employees were very nice and accomodating. The room was small but nice and clean and located right on the Riverwalk. Our only complaint was that it advertised a balcony which turned out to be just a small porch. We had looked forward to Fiesta, but it turned out not to be our thing. Nobody's fault. We're looking forward to coming here again, maybe upgrading to the honeymoon suite next time.

Great Concierge; OK Room

3.6 on June 09, 2011

We stayed in cottage 23. Check-in was smooth. Room was clean. Located directly on the Riverwalk, but 8-10 min walk to the heart of the walk where the shops and restaurants are. Room and bathroom could have used some basic improvements. Paint was chipping in several places. Plug in plates were protruding from the wall. Wallpaper in the bathroom had water stains and was peeling. Bathroom had a wire shelf, but it was difficult to stand toiletries on it. A small table by the sink would have done wonders. Tub was clogged. We reported it. However it was not fixed by the time we left. Another trash can in the room would have been great. For what we paid, I would expected the condition of the room to be better. On a positive note, the room was cleaned every day and we had fresh towels. Room was spacious. We did not hear our neighbors. Porch area was very nice for sitting. Erin at the front desk was the best concierge I have ever had. She knew the city like the back of hear hand. She recommended multiple great restaurants and pointed out wonderful tourist spots. Her attitude was upbeat, warm and friendly. Breakfast was just average. It was worth eating, but nothing special.

getaway for a day in San Antonio

5 on May 23, 2011

Our first trip to the city and this was an excellent place to begin. The service was awesome, and the room was beautiful and very handy to all of the important sites of the city.

First timers- will be back!!

4.8 on April 26, 2011

We had never been to San Antonio so had no idea where to stay or what to do. Boy, did we book the right place! The innkeepers were wonderful...everyday we appeared at the office with our maps with us and said "Help." And they did! The setting was perfect quiet and peaceful. So thankful we stayed here!


4.0 on April 12, 2011

This was our second stay here, the first one being about three years ago. Although I am used to the comforts from chain hotels from my frequent business travels, I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this B&B. The owners and staff are so friendly, helpful and accommodating and make you feel like part of their family. The rooms are quaint, clean and comfortable. They have air conditioning and ceiling fans, which is nice for those warmer days. The breakfast is made for you when you are ready and was always hot and delicious. The locations was good and easy to get to. We walked a few minutes along the river to get to the popular part of the Riverwalk and never felt unsafe. A few minutes walk in the other direction took us to nice residential areas. Mornings and Evenings on the porch were always a must for us. It is a lot more homey than staying in hotels.

Inn on the Riverwalk

4.2 on March 18, 2011

Overall the Inn on the Riverwalk was a great choice. It was very convienently located in so far as walking distance to the Riverwalk, and other places of interest in San Antonio. The staff was super nice and totally helpful. The cook for breakfast was just a delight, she took pride in her job and breakfast both days was outstanding. The only real nitpick I would have is the size of the bathroom in their standard room is very small, you are very hemmed in. The solution to that would be to stay in one of their rooms that have a full size bathtub. Our next stay there, we'll be following our own advice and stay in one of those rooms.

Could use some improvement

4.0 on March 10, 2011

Our cottage #23 could have used some new wallpaper in the bath and some fresh paint. Dan served up a great breakfast, love his flapjacks. Staff at the desk was impersonal and cold.

19 degrees of Riverwalk

Although all the San Antonio fountains were frozen due to the cold, we loved the Inn. The location was great and our upgrade to the Honeymoon Suite so lovely, with jacuzzi, balconies and sitting room. Breakfasts in the dining room with chef, Ken, were terrific and their idea of a van tour of the missions was perfect for us.

Great service, but....

2.8 on February 04, 2011

My boyfriend and I went to Inn on the Riverwalk for our anniversary for 2 nights. Staff were very friendly and nice. We enjoyed the location, free parking, wifi, the view, the breakfast,; However the bathroom (shower only, no tub) was very small, 0nly 1 of us could fit and bathroom floor was ripped and partially black (mold?). The building was beautiful, the room was good size, but interior was a bit old style. On the top of that, on the first night we found the roach on the stairway, we stayed at 2nd floor but on the next day, when we went down for the breakfast, the roach was still there. We went out all day, and came back that night, again the roach was there, that made us to think the staff does not clean the facility very well. It was gross and I was scared if it came into our room. On the next morning, the roach was there again, I am glad I didn't walk around the room with bare feet. Overall, this place was ok, we felt they over charged for that quality of the room.

Fantastic Inn!!

5 on January 19, 2011

We just spent 4 days at the Inn and it was fabulous! So homey! Very clean, quaint, and the breakfasts are to die for. I can't wait to stay there again. Thanks Johanna, Margaret and Maria, for making our stay so warm and comfortable.

A B & B you don't want to miss

4.0 on January 15, 2011

We stayed at this B & B 4 days. We were given a complimentary upgrade to the honeymoon suite which spacious and very clean. The staff are friendly and fun. We can't wait to return. Oh and KEN the breakfast cook makes the best darn flapjacks! Along with celebrating our anniversary we were planning on golfing, however, the weather didn't cooperate at all. BRRRRRRRRRRRRR. We loved walking along The Riverwalk.


4.0 on January 14, 2011

The place has no correspondence between price and quality at all. The rooms are not designed with efficiency. The bathroom is small and uncomfortable. Placed too many unnecessary items in the room. The light is poor. The most terrible thing is breakfast time, as oil and saturated reused using pervades the entire hotel and is impregnated in the clothing and hair.

Happiest Day Of My Life

5 on January 01, 2011

I could have never asked for a better wedding location and venue than the Inn on the Riverwalk. It WOW'ed my entire family. Everything turned out gorgeous. It is a night I will remember for the rest of my life. We promise to come visit on every anniversary to thank our new best friend Tina. Thank you girlie, you are a miracle worker! Ismael & Valerie

The staff and the location was awesome

5 on December 27, 2010

I would like to say that the staff here are great and awesome, we enjoy ourselfs peaceful. Maria the cook made a great breakfast... I would be coming back more. thank you again

Everything was great.

5 on December 12, 2010

The Staff at the inn made me feel at home and welcoming, everything was perfect.

Great Thanksgiving Getaway!

4.2 on December 04, 2010

My husband and I had looked at several options in downtown San Antonio when he found the Inn on the Riverwalk. We had a fabulous time there. It is so convenient to everything downtown. We could walk anywhere we wanted to go. It's a beautiful place in a quiet area. The staff is friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the breakfast. I hated to leave and look forward to returning.

Anniversary Weekend

3.6 on October 11, 2010

I was lookingfor a place to celebrate our wedding anniversary when I discovered the Inn on the Rivverwalk. We had stayed in a B&B for the first time in Hershey PA. Since that was such an enjoyable experience I was hoping to find a lovely B&B in San Antonio. What I found was a haven of beauty and tranquility on a quite part of the Riverwalk. The staff was helpful and very anxious to please us. Reservations to area restaurants and transportation arrangements made our stay very relaxing. Our room was clean and beautifully decorated. A delicious breakfast was prepared and served by a very friendly and effecient staff. We will definitley stay at the Inn on future visits to San Antonio.

We were on a Mission....

4.2 on September 29, 2010

to find the "perfect" place for our reunion. As this was my very first time at a B & B, I wasn't sure what to expect. They were friendly, informative and happy to help me with anything I asked. This Inn is absolutely charming and the staff goes above and beyond. I knew the minute I stepped into my room that this was the place we would meet. Our reunion is in 2011 at the Inn of the Riverwalk. I recommend you check this jewel out....

Cozy Weekend away

5 on August 22, 2010

This was the first time to stay at the In on the Riverwalk, have to say was the best vacation we have had. The room was beautiful with a patio overlooking the river, great place for coffee in the morning. The staff was excellent, helpful in every way making diner reservations for us and giving geat advise on where to eat. It was also enjoyable to have a hot breakfest made by the chef every morning. Perfect location on the riverwalk walking distance from any where you would want to go. While there we got a chance to see johanna perform a beautiful wedding ceremony on the river. We will be back in march for a family friends wedding, know it will be amazing, cant wait.

Wedding Nov 2008

4.2 on July 27, 2010

Although we did not stay at the Inn because we live in town we had our wedding there November 28,2008. Johanna was great as well as all of the other staff we came in contact with. We picked Inn on the Riverwalk because we loved the location and that we could get everything we needed there. We spent months looking for the perfect place and person to officiate and when I toured Inn on the Riverwalk and met with Johanna I knew it was the place. I loved that Johanna was able to work with me being out of town (in the military) and with short notice too. I have since had two friends plan their weddings there and both were very pleased as well. I will continue to recommend Inn on the Riverwalk to brides to be as well as travelers visiting the riverwalk.

Inn on the Riverwalk Room 21

3.4 on July 20, 2010

I stayed in cottage spa room 21, and was very pleased when we first entered the room. After looking a bit further into the room i found that some of the furniture in the room was in poor repair. The wardrobe was difficult to open and close. The spa tub was in need of major attention, it looked as if it had been installed by a complete amatuer. The rim around the tub wasn't sealed and if water got above a certain level it would spill out and go inbetween the tub and the tile surrounding it and get trapped between. This is ultimately going to lead into water damage and a rotten wood floor. I was very pleased with the breakfast and the service that the staff provided to us. The massages in room were also very nice. I would probably stay again, but may look into a different room.


5 on June 27, 2010

My daughter was married at the Inn a couple of weeks ago. Everything was absolutely perfect. Tina, the wedding planner, now my good friend made it all seem effortless. It was their "dream wedding" and we would go back in a heartbeat. Thanks to everyone who made it such a spectacular day!!!

Our Wedding this Weekend

5 on May 31, 2010

We checked in on Friday Morning and left on Sunday. We rented the penthouse suite. The room was clean and cool. We had all the amenities of a regular hotel and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was made fresh both mornings with coffee and juice; all were excellent! Friendly staff, it really felt like home. Wedding party commented their stay also felt like home. Wedding Planner Tina Gonzales was excellent really catered to us. Johanna officiated the ceremony did an excellent job! This was the happiest couple of days of my life in all seriousness and you guys helped make it happen Thanks a Bunch!!!!!! Keith and Margie Wilson

Relaxation & Spa

4.8 on May 21, 2010

We were a group of 5 friends from 2 cities that met at the Inn on the Riverwalk. We planned to have just a relaxing stay and I had a spa for the girls. Cabin 12 I believe was perfect for our spa with the extra bed and couch. This was our first stay and didn't know what to expect. It was GREAT! The location was perfect and all the sights were within walking distance. (And we are a young senior group.) The best part was you Johanna, Tina and Chris, oh and of course Buddy. You all made our stay so wonderful. The service and food was beyond our expectations. We feel we left having made new friends. We plan to return next year sometime. Rita Cobb and Friends Brenham, Texas

Texas Friendly in every way!!!!

4.8 on May 19, 2010

This is a wonderful B&B to stay at away from the craziness of a hotel. The rooms are beautiful and inviting and the staff are so "Texas" friendly. The fresh breakfast prepared by a wonderful chef are served to you personally. I wish I could stay there once a month at least. It is a wonderful break from a busy homelife.

Sisters Vacation

4.0 on May 18, 2010

My sister lives in Illinois and I live in San Diego so we decided to meet in San Antonio as we have never been there before. I must say that the staff at the Inn on the Riverwalk certainly went above and beyond when it came to taking care of our needs. They got my boarding pass on their computer for me, thanks Tina and Chris made the best breakfasts each morning, that his passion, and Lydia the housekeeper was very sweet working around all the stuff we had in the room to make our beds each morning. And Johanna was so sweet to basically let us do whatever we needed, like go in the refrigerator for ice or get coffee whenever we wanted, a great team of youngones there. The location was great they back up to the riverwalk and it was so quiet there but you are only minutes away from all the action of the city. We will definately be back again. Thank you Lynne D half of the sister team.

A beautiful spot

4.6 on May 05, 2010

We really enjoyed the bed & breakfast, especially the location. It was a beautiful walk along the Riverwalk to all the shops, dining, music, etc. The only concern we had was the tiny bathroom and tiny shower with the immovable shower head. Everything else—the room, the breakfasts, the hostess and especially the location were great.

We found a second home again.

4.8 on April 20, 2010

After staying in another San Antonio B & B for years and then having it close, we were afraid we would never find another home away from home. Tena was so great to be around and the rest of the staff also made us feel right at home. Chris was super on the weekends. Things were peaceful and the down home feeling was wonderful.

Best Kept Secret in San Antonio

4.8 on March 28, 2010

Tucked away on a quite street, within 15 minutes to everything. Friendly, customer focused service with a smile. Comfortable room, felt like home.

Great Honeymoon!!!!

5 on March 23, 2010

My wife and I rented the penthouse suite and we were stunned. The views from the two balconies were amazing. Tina the innkeeper was excellent, she went above and beyond what anyone at a hotel would do. The food was good, chris is the best chef and the most friendliest. We will for sure be back hopefully every year to spend our anniversary at the inn on the river walk. John and Christy Curry Bonham, Texas

A weekend to remember....

3.6 on March 22, 2010

We came across the Inn on the Riverwalk while planning our Wedding. I could not have asked for a more spectacular venue to celebrate one of the most important days of my life. Tina Gonzales exceeded our expectations and made our special day absolutely amazing! Services before, during and after our wedding were first rate. The complete team at the Inn made not only us, but our guests feel at home. We felt like we were the only wedding in the world!! Every detail from the grounds, food, decor and so much more was attended to. There are not enough "thanks" in the world to show our appreciation!

Not the restful night we expected.

2.8 on March 19, 2010

My husband and I stayed at the Inn for our 15th anniversary. It is a charming building at the quiet end of the riverwalk. The room was shabby chic but the bed was comfortable and on the balcony we had a gorgeous view of the downtown area/riverwalk. We had a wonderful dinner and returned to the room to go to bed. At first there was some noise from a neighbors tv, but they turned it off by 10pm and we fell deep asleep. Around 11pm we were awoken by this horrible noise on the stairs. We then were kept up until 2am by the people above us walking back and forth. The next morning we were woke up by breakfast being set up below. The walls and floors are way too thin and voices and any noise just carries right through them. When we packed to leave you could hear entire breakfast conversations and all the noise of the dining room so a nap before we left was impossible as well. Overall I would have to say we were extremely dissapointed and felt like for the money we should have stayed somewhere else.

Room with a VIEW

3.6 on March 12, 2010

My husband and I were in SA for a conference. We opted to stay here rather than near the convention site. I'm happy that we did. The convention center is about 3/4 of a mile away so you'll need to be "up" for the walk. However, we enjoyed the walk along the riverwalk each time we made it. The daily breakfasts were very good, and our penthouse room was a "home away from home" for us. We hope to get back to SA soon. The Inn on the Riverwalk will be our choice again!

Great place!!! Will go back and stay again

5 on February 19, 2010

We had our wedding there as a last minute thing. Service was amazing, very affordable, beautiful location, great staff, lovely room! Will go back and stay again!

Beautiful location

Professionally managed Inn

3.6 on February 09, 2010

We stayed for a weekend and the Innkeeper was making us feel welcome and made everything smooth and easy.

Our Dining review is made up

5 on January 27, 2010

It is 1 month shy of 5 years ago in which my brother and sister surprised me with a wedding gift to stay in the penthouse my first night married as a husband. Frankly I know little of the service their because my family made all the arrangements for my wife and my stay. We checked in and and went up stairs and was amazed by the room. It was so romantic, quiet from the busy river walk. The view was amazing and the little time we spent outside was an easy walk to the commercial river walk. The room with a jacuzzi was such a dream we didn't want to leave. We partied so much that night on the river walk we totally skipped breakfast. I am making a reservation as we speak for the room for my 5th wedding anniversary and hope this time we experience the whole package of a bed and breakfast. Regardless of eating breakfast here this place creates memories.

A Great Place To Stay.

5 on January 24, 2010

Beautiful place to stay,The staff was so nice and what a good cook they had. we will be back.

The best Location but

3.0 on January 20, 2010

This property has a great location and easy parking. Its very simple and not the 'historic' bed and breakfast that is often found. Has a great view of the skyline if you get a room with a balcony on the east side...great to relax have a beer or sip on some wine. The beds were soft and sheets were comfortable. It was however a bit run down and could use a refresher as some exterior wood was rotten and gave it a shaby appeal. The beds were soft and sheets were comfortable. Over all, did not seem to be really clean, but managable. Breakfast was plain.

Fantastic Last Minute Wedding

4.4 on January 06, 2010

Dear Joanne, Andrea and I wanted to thank you for all your and your staff’s help in putting together our wedding on such short notice. I am still amazed that with a couple of phone calls and emails every detail was worked out and then arranged by you so that all we had to do was show up and enjoy the wonderful establishment and beautiful setting. We were thankful for the last minute rearranging of the rooms so that all the family could be accommodated. The rooms were beautiful, the food was great and most importantly the ceremony was awesome. Thank you so much for everything. Dave and Andrea Johnson

Exceeded my expectations

Great stay, cozy, close to the riverwalk.

One-of-a-kind Place

5 on December 30, 2009

We have ben traveling across the US from Seattle to Naples with a stop over in San Antonio where we definately found this one-of-a-kind place.


5 on December 30, 2009

This place was awesome. The view from the balcony is breathtaking. The breakfast is the best ever. The owners were so nice and helpful.

"Perfect for us; Perfect for our wedding."

5 on December 17, 2009

On the evening of November 15, 2009, we exchanged our vows on the riverwalk, held our reception on the terrace patio, and shared our first night married in the romantic penthouse suite. In the morning, we enjoyed a delectable breakfast on the balcony overlooking the city. Words could not ever describe the gratitude we feel for the kindhearted "family" at the Inn on the Riverwalk. There will always be a special place in our hearts for them, by providing us with such an irreplaceable memory. Thank you from Richard and Tarry Parks.

Home away from home

5 on December 08, 2009

We were treated like family., Our room was beautifully decorated and very comfotable. Breakfast was delicious-try the hashbrowns. We were sad to leave, and I miss it already. What a wonderful place to stay!

Wonderful, Memorable 1st Anniversary

4.6 on November 16, 2009

My husband and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary at the Inn November 2009. It was more than we expected with personal touches such as a rose petal heart, chocolate kisses, hand written note from the owners, chef-prepared breakfast made to order with a fantastic view! We stayed in Spa Room 21 and it couldn't have been more romantic. We only used our car at night to travel to Chart House in Tower of America's and to the Spurs game. We were able to access the entire riverwalk easily. We absolutely loved the entire experience and will be staying here again on our next trip back to San Antonio! Thank you so much!

An excellent find

4.2 on November 10, 2009

Took a couple of days out whilst my husband was working in Texas. Excellent location, comfy bed and the french toast was delicious. Just left the car and wandered around the sites. The mexican restaurant recommendation was excellent.

Whilwind Trip

4.4 on October 12, 2009

Well this was our second time at the Inn, Room was great, There were some new changes, some we liked, some we didnt, My husbands motto , "If it a broke dont fix it"! We liked Your Front desk Gal Teresa, always quick to help and satisfy our needs, didnt care for the new gal, To Pushy! and in your face, we couldnt get a word in edge wise, takes a way from the class of the Inn. Parking was a little tight at times,But still a great value,and this time we were pleasantly surprised at the wonderful breakfast spread,loved those muffins! Over all we still enjoyed the place and will come back next visit. Remember Johanna and Scott,Sometimes the old is better than the new, your place represents quiet charm, not loud, in your face.

Outstanding Inn And More

4.6 on October 09, 2009

If your Into Great Inns Make This one a Must! We Had a Room with a View, Direct Route to The River Walk, Free Parking, Great Price compared to Standard Hotels, 24 hours Entry, And a Free Breakfast, with a Special Homemade personal touch. We will never stay in a Hotel Again. We looked at there different rooms, each one was unique. You can count on us to return again.

Our Research Paid off!

4.2 on October 05, 2009

We were looking for a out of the way place just to spend some time away from the day to day trappings, I did a lot of searching on the net for the perfect place and low and behold we found it. The room had a charm, we felt like we were on our second honeymoon, so quiet, gave us great directions to all the hot spots in SA The River walk was a step a away Parking was free, which was a big plus they offered a free Breakfast that was just so much more that a toaster and a box of cold cereal, I wish they did Lunch and Dinner there as well, and we wouldnt have gone out. Scott and Joanna we will tell our friends to get to Texas to Stop In at your Cozy Inn, It was a time we will always cherish.

Great Place for a Private Getaway

4.2 on October 01, 2009

This is our second stay here great room, very secluded great price! and this time around the Breakfast made our Stay complete! A Good Home cooked meal, and Great Conversation,It was a complete package!Cudos on the New Changes, We will be back again Next Year!!! A++++

Good-bye to the National Chains!

5 on September 29, 2009

What wonderful results from a spontaneous decision to stay somewhere other than the chosen conference national chain high-rise hotel. A 5-10 minute beautiful walk along the river to the meetings beat the noise & waiting on elevators; The breakfast, company, and atmosphere superb; the room rustic, home-like, lovely, and comfortable; The atmosphere alone would have made the stay worth while; everything else was a bonus! I will be back every time I need a temporary home in downtown SA.

Perfect Wedding

5 on September 26, 2009

My Husband and I had a small, 6 guest wedding ceremony to predate the larger one next summer. We rented the penthouse for a VERY reasonable price- expecially given the location. The ceremony was held on the balcony/deck. The view is breathtaking and the pictures turned out stunning given the lighting at sunset. Everyone commented on the beautiful atmosphere. The room was romantic and the service excellent. Johana did a wonderful job performing the ceremony with grace and flexibility. I would recomend this for a romantic getaway or for a wedding, to anyone!

Labor Day Wedding and stay

4.4 on September 17, 2009

We had an excellent stay. We contacted JoAnna about 6 weeks prior to getting married and set everything up with her. she was very easy to work with. When we arrived she greeted up warmly and helped us get settled into the rooms. The hospitality was remarkable. We will be back

25th Wedding Anniversary

5 on September 03, 2009

Our first Bed & Breakfast...exceeded our expectations. Perfect location for walking to the riverwalk and other attractions. The Penthouse balcony view was awesome to overlook the river and downtown San Antonio. The room was adorned with roses waiting for us! A quiet and romantic place to stay.... we'll be back.

Inn keepers are for keeps...

4.4 on August 26, 2009

This was the perfect location to enjoy the city. We walked everywhere! And it felt perfectly secluded, even though it's right on the riverwalk. We followed all of Joanna's recommendations, and they were all excellent. Well done!

George Wedding

4.0 on August 26, 2009

We really enjoyed our stay, it was peaceful and relaxing. Johanna did a great job of trying her hardest to accomodate us and make us feel welcome. We appreciated her true kind heart and gracious spirit. We will most certainly be returning. The room was very romantic and relaxing. Perfect wedding getaway!!

Weekend wedding 8/15/09

4.2 on August 24, 2009

Just wanted to say what a great weekend we all had. The wedding was wonderful. Johanna and Teresa did a fantasic job. The flowers, cake, decorations etc. were all beautiful. We were treated with great care by all at the inn.

Wedding Weekend

5 on August 19, 2009

The service, breakfast and attitude were fantastic. Everyone was so friendly and everyone in our group enjoyed their stay. It was a relaxing atmosphere and it really felt like you were at home!

The Perfect Wedding

5 on August 19, 2009

Our wedding was held at the Inn on the Riverwalk this past weekend - I cannot express how great Johanna, Teresa, and their staff was. My wife and I met with them two months before our wedding to pick our date - we rented out the entire main house and had two other rooms in the cottages next store. Johanna and Teresa handled everything for our wedding - the setup, the ceremony, the cake, the food, and the flowers. Their efforts made our weekend so stress-free and I cannot thank them enough. We paid them for everything up front and put full trust in them to get everything together for our special day - and they did a phenomenal job! The Penthouse suite has to be the nicest get away room in San Antonio, especially with the rose petals that led up to it with the romance packages, which included chocolates and Champaign and a dozen roses that the Inn gave to us as a gift for our wedding. I can go on and on forever, but will simply end it with - this place is awesome, my wife and I and all of our guests really had a great time, and I would highly recommend this place to anyone who loves Inn's or would love to have a perfect stress-free wedding! KK & SCK

Kevin & Stacey's wedding

3.6 on August 18, 2009

We were guests at the Inn for my son's wedding 8/15/09 which was perfect down to every last detail. The work put into the event by Rev. Johanna and Teresa (wonder woman) was above & beyond. We took over the entire house and part of the 2nd house for the event and they couldn't have been more accomodating. Thanks for everything.

The Perfect Escape

5 on August 04, 2009

We felt welcomed the moment we were met at the door by Johanna. We came for a quiet, romantic weekend and our stay couldn't have been more perfect. The accomodations were comfortable and charming. Breakfast was hearty, hot, and served with a huge smile. We'll be back. Who needs noisy, impersonal hotels when this kind of hospitality is available? We'll be back---definitely!

Retreat to old-fashioned charm hidden in the middle of a bustling city

4.6 on August 03, 2009

My new hubby and I got engaged on June 9, 2009. We decided we did not want to wait to get married, nor did we want a large wedding. Two days after getting engaged, we started looking for venues- hoping for an August 1st wedding date. Fortunately for us, we came across the inn on Google and made a call. Lo and behold, August was booked...EXCEPT FOR August 1st! I knew that our special day was going to be incredible from that first phone call. Teresa is clearly a well experienced event planner; she is flexible, knowledgeable, and made us feel at ease. Johanna gracefully and willingly adapted the traditional ceremony to include our personal vows and other requests. Both our ceremony and our reception were absolutely perfect. Likewise, the inn's rooms, service, and breakfast were all incredible. We will definitely be returning to the inn for future visits to San Antonio.

Romantic Weekend Away

5 on July 22, 2009

My husband and I had not been anywhere without our three small children in three years. We chose the Inn on the Riverwalk as our romantic getaway, and it really exceeded our expectations. It is set right next to the riverwalk, yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown that it was so quiet and calm. Our room was cozy and relaxing. The homemade breakfast was fabulous and we already have plans for our return trip...we are bringing the whole family this time!!

Just Like Home

4.8 on July 21, 2009

There are several words that can describe my stay at the Inn on the Riverwalk. Quaint. Lovely. Charming. Beautiful. I traveled to San Antonio for my niece’s wedding. Her wedding was also at the Inn on the Riverwalk. I found the staff to be very personable and friendly and made me feel very much like a guest at their home and not a traveler staying at a hotel. My niece’s wedding was beautiful. The decorations, cake and ceremony location were gorgeous. It rivaled high end weddings that I attended. I peeked at several of the rooms, as many family members stayed here as well. Each room was different, but still had a feeling of being at home. This event was particularly different for me because it was the first time I’ve traveled without my husband. I was a bit stressed because I’ve never been somewhere overnight without him. The Inn on the Riverwalk was great because I felt very much at home, not like a stranger in a cold hotel room. This eased my mind about traveling alone. When I left for the airport, the staff hugged me! How great is that? My husband and I travel extensively and we’ve stayed in many five star hotels (TheWaldorf Astoria, The Plaza Hotel in New York, The Wynn in Vegas, The Bellagio, The Phoenician - Scottsdale, etc.). The Inn on the Riverwalk was just as wonderful as those top hotels. Many thanks to everyone there! I enjoyed my stay! C. Finney, Philadelphia, PA

Inn on the Riverwalk

4.4 on July 20, 2009

Romantic, charming Victorian in a great location right on the (quiet stretch) of the Riverwalk. Clean, comfortable, and lovely rooms with ceiling fans, hardwood floors, and window a/c., wireless internet, cable TV, yummy breakfasts, and friendly staff!

Run like a family for families!

4.8 on July 17, 2009

The Inn on the Riverwalk was a perfect get away for our 7-year anniversary. The location is AWESOME! You can walk along the river to the Riverwalk, the mall, the Alamo, the Children's Museum - all sorts of fun! Johanna was so welcoming and included lots of special touches to our stay - complete with leaving a fun little booster seat out in the lobby so our 17-month old could play in it. It was great having two rooms so he could sleep in one, and we could stay up late. She even allowed us to stay late the day we were checking out so he could get his afternoon nap in before we drove home! Betty also makes the BEST breakfasts - fit for a king and queen. Lucious fruit and unbeatable French toast. A great place with lots of special touches - like personalized notes and Hershey kisses when you arive. Make the most of this great deal!

Second time around

4.4 on July 15, 2009

We have stayed at Inn on the Riverwalk before and found it to be such a delightful experience that when we learned we were going to be in San Antonio for a convetion--there was no question about where to stay. It's just like home away from home.

Welcomed Back

4.6 on July 09, 2009

This is the second time I've stayed at the Inn. Unfortunately the weather was very hot. We were welcomed like long lost relatives. This place is just as charming as the first visit. If you are expecting modern and completely restored, you won't get that here. It is like going to visit your most loved and adored grandmother's house. Betty, Theresa, Lydia and Johanna are not your grandparents but they make you feel very welcome. The rooms are clean but like most homes of that era, there is always something that should be painted or fixed. We found it convienently located to the convention center, shops, King William Historic District and of course the pleasure of the Riverwalk. It was cheaper than the hotels in the area and parking was free. Even though the weather was excessively hot, we were still able to enjoy the deck for an early morning coffee. Breakfast was different each day and fresh flowers were on tables. I am looking forward to the next visit to the Inn.

I stay here everytime I go to San Antonio

5 on July 05, 2009

I travel from the Dallas area to San Antonio 3-4 times a year and always stay at The Inn On The Riverwalk. The rooms are immaculate, the hospitality is the best of anyplace I have ever stayed and the breakfast is wonderful...great variety of food and very tasty!Johanna & Scott went above and beyond to make our stay the best it could be and the location on the quiet end of the Riverwalk makes for a very peaceful and enjoyable escape. I highly recommend this B&B to all of my friends and to anyone who travels to San Antonio and is looking for a great place to stay!

An adorable and serene get-away in the heart of San Antonio!

5 on June 24, 2009

The Inn on the Riverwalk is such a great B&B. If you're headed to downtown San Antonio, this B&B is just the place! It is right on the riverwalk so the views are amazing and very beautiful but it's also very quiet and peaceful on this end of the riverwalk. It's an easy walk to the more action-packed area of the riverwalk where the shops & restaurants are. The rooms are adorable and the staff is very nice. If you love the B&B experience, you'll love Inn on the Riverwalk.

Mitchell-Powell Wedding

5 on June 18, 2009

Perfect venue for our wedding. Lovely facilities, that are quite, private and very romantic. Just blocks from the "restaurant district" but far enough away that you don't see the tourist traffic. Staff is very friendly and the breakfast is wonderful. Would highly recommend. We stayed in the Penthouse Suite for our honeymoon and other guests stayed in both the main house and the two house across the street. Made is so nice to share breakfast the morning after our wedding. We had 85 guests attend our wedding but could have had more because of the deck and patio behind the house.

Over nite stay

3.4 on June 18, 2009

The staff was really nice. Gave us directions to everything and breakfast was GREAT!!! The patio/balcony was really nice in the evening and morning. The room was nice but we had a room with a small seperate room for my teenage son but he couldnt stay in that room for long because it was HOT! The bathroom was really small and the shower head wouldnt move. There was an AC in our room but not his. The rest of the house was REALLY hot. I was expecting the B&B to be right on the riverwalk where all the hotels, shops, etc were but you have to walk a few blocks to get there. We came across several homeless people sleep on the sideway near the B&B.......that made us a little uneasy. It was nice and an ok price........staff was very nice and helpful!

We went there for our honeymoon! It was so sweet! They had rose petals leading to our room then on through to the bed where they had a huge heart in rose petals w hershey kisses on every other petal! It was so cute! The food was very wonderful and just perfect to start our day.We enjoyed the area and the attractions especially the river walk.

first timers and a first rate time

5 on June 04, 2009

Inn was the best choice I could have made for our first time at a B&B! My girlfriend and I loved the intimacy of the inn, not at all like a cut and paste hotel. The staff was superb and the whole atmosphere left you refreshed. Plus, just about everything was within walking distance. We will definitely return.

Two year Anniversary

3.8 on May 11, 2009

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. It was a very nice experience. The owner and the rest of the staff was so helpful as well as resourceful. We parked our car and walked to all the attractions. We even ordered in, Champagne and all. It was great!


4.4 on May 06, 2009

My husband and I stayed here for our mini-honeymoon and it was PERFECT! The room was great! The house itself was completely charming! It is a really great location, too. Far enough away from the action of downtown so that the area is quiet but close enough to everything so that it isn't a long walk to get to all of the main attractions. I would highly, highly recommend this place. Also, when I called to book the room, the owner was so chatty and helpful. That was really great. The only small thing I would suggest improvement on would be the food. It tasted really great, but it wasn't a big selection. Minor detail compared to all the other awesomeness. :) Thanks for a great stay! We will be back for sure!

relaxing stay

4.2 on April 13, 2009

We couldn't have picked a more welcoming place to stay. Staff made us feel like we were right at home.

Wedding at the Inn

5 on March 31, 2009

On March 14th, 2009, we got married at the Inn on the Riverwalk. Johanna, her husband, Teresa, and the rest of the staff were "over the top" accomodating. The rooms were wonderful, and the reception area looked absolutely fabulous. The breakasts also were very delicious. We highly recommend anyone going to San Antonio to stay here. It is a very close walk to everything and peaceful in the evening. We can't wait to return. Pete and Janet

Second Honeymoon

3.0 on March 20, 2009

This was my husband's first B&B experience and we were not disapointed at all. We liked the fact that the Inn was so close to the River Walk, that we did not need to use our vehicle for transportation. The owners have done a great job for having this B&B for over a year. We would like to come back in the future and see how much the owners have grown as Innkeepers and how much more they will personalize the place. I have been at other Inns and I must say that I missed the interaction with the Innkeepers. I did feel that I was in a nicer version of a hotel, but more personal service and interaction will make this place a great place.

Rustic peace

2.8 on March 19, 2009

A friendly atmosphere, but a little more rustic than expected. Nice location to walk to sites. Not quiet (can hear other guests), and the room is too small for the price.

Perfect Setting

5 on March 13, 2009

Words cannot describe what a perfect and intimate setting the Inn was for my brother in laws wedding. From the ceremony on the riverwalk to just a few steps for the dinner. We could not ask for anything better! Teresa, Johanna and the caterer went above and beyond to make this evening a special memory! Thank you so much and we will definitely visit again!!The Tarango Family

Complete HAPPINESS on the river!

5 on March 10, 2009

My family of (4) had our BEST Christmas EVER at The Inn on the Riverwalk! The master bed was heaven on a cloud! And we had such a peaceful song filled morning with the birds singing outside! The walk to the river from the Inn was invigorating and we enjoyed the sites along the way! The owners, Johanna & Scott , with the staff were sweet as can be! We have wonderful memories for a life time!!!

Homey - yet Private & Quiet

4.2 on March 03, 2009

This charming b&b is a gem. Johanna and Scott (and Scott's mum) were all gracious, easy-going and accommodating of any request we made. We loved the views, the peaceful location, the views from the porches and deck (all w/ Internet access) and - above all - the comfortable, homey feeling of the place. Scott's mom cooked a hearty breakfast every morning (with fruit, yogurt & granola available too). All three of us (my dad, brother and I) enjoyed our stay and congratulated one another on our excellent discovery!

relaxing stay

4.2 on March 03, 2009

A little piece of heaven in the middle of a busy city. The owners were a pleasure.

Wonderful Stay

3.4 on February 26, 2009

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Inn on the Riverwalk. We thought the Penthouse Suite was very romantic and felt like home. We loved the wonderful balcony that overlooked the Riverwalk. We had some problems receiving ice, and the jacuzzi tub stopped working one night. For the most part we had an amazing time. We spent our anniversery in this Bed and Breakfast and we will be back. The owners Joanna and Scoot seem very nice. The breakfast was good as well. We would recommend anyone to stay at this bed and breakfast if you want a romantic getaway on the Riverwalk. We will definetely be back soon. Sincerely, Kaleigh & Blake

great place

4.6 on February 12, 2009

The inn was very clean and comfortable and the help was friendly and informative. Will visit again.

Great Place for Meetings!

4.6 on January 12, 2009

Our company recently held two days of planning meetings at the Inn on the Riverwalk. The location was great and the staff provided outstanding service! If you're looking for a meeting location that is a liitle bit off the beaten path yet near all the SA downtown activities, quiet, charming rooms and with good meeting space, then I highly recommend considering the Inn for your next meeting!


4.0 on January 05, 2009

Each moment was delightful. The wedding ceremony was perfect! And, the individual attention and food a wonderful bonus. Scott and Dana

Thanks for Everything!

5 on December 30, 2008

My Husband & I got away for the Christmas Holiday cause our son passed away in August. His B-day is on Christmas Day & this was a nice getaway from home. I want to thank the Staff at Inn on the Riverwalk for a wonderful time. Thanks for the hard work!!!!

the BEST B&B!

5 on December 01, 2008

It was a wonderful stay. My honey treated me to a stay at The Inn on the Riverwalk - what a treat! It was perfectly located downtown in the middle of the three main districts that you'd want to go visit. Everything is within walking distance, which makes your stay so much more romantic with strolls through the historic city. Loved it and can't wait to go back!

Home away from home

4.4 on August 31, 2008

I’ve had the pleasure of visiting the Inn on the Riverwalk multiple times on business trips. Never again will I stay in a hotel when I visit San Antonio. My experience at the Inn is like a home away from home. Johanna, Scott & Betty are always warm and welcoming, the rooms are stylish and comfortable, and the location is perfect. Nothing beats sitting out on the balcony at night with a panoramic view of the city. I can’t wait for my next business strip!

Hospitality Plus

4.4 on August 04, 2008

We had a great time and were treated like family. Schott, Johanna, and Betty were so hospitable. Food was very good and room very nice.

Perfect location and very dog friendly

3.4 on July 30, 2008

Three of us, plus one dog, stayed in one of the cottage rooms. It was perfect for all of us - the room was very homey and comfortable. Close enough to walk to the main drag on the riverwalk yet far enough away to enjoy the peacefulness of the King William area. It was also worked out great for our dog - the walk way by the river had doggie waste dispencers and was perfect for early morning runs.

Great B and B

4.4 on July 24, 2008

Love the house, location, and owners! Scott and Johanna make you feel at home. Dining room is nice with a deck/balcony off of it...great view of the river and Tower of Americas. We will definitely stay again!! I have already recommended this place to many friends!


5 on July 24, 2008

We were treated like royalty. The room was beautiful & the people running it were the best.

Inn on the Riverwalk

4.6 on July 23, 2008

What a wonderful place to stay in San Antonio. It's within walking distance to the main "hubba" of the River Walk. Clean, beautiful accomodations and the innkeepers were such gracious people. Friendly and went out of there way to make sure everything ran smoothly while we were there. Great experience and I would recommend this B&B to anyone.

It was all we could ask & made our time in San Antonio relaxing & thoroughly enjoyable.

Great Little Inn

4.6 on July 22, 2008

We had a great girlfriend weekend (10 of us!) at this quaint little B&B! The house is convenient, clean with a great dining room and nice outdoor deck to lounge on with your friends. The breakfasts were fabulous! The owners were wonderful and very helpful! I would highly recommend it to anyone going to San Antonio!

So perfect

5 on July 22, 2008

Scott and JoHanna are the sweetest couple, so eager to please. The rooms are quaint, the breakfast excellent. Short walk to down town. We will definitely be back.

Awesome Location, Few problems

4.0 on July 21, 2008

Many positives - excellent service, kind people, yummy breakfast, beautiful view & location...but the bed in room 15 was awful, squeaky & "hole in the middle", the sheets were scratchy and towels (wash cloths) were scratchy.

Innkeeper Response
It is with our deepest regret that we weren't able to correct this guests experience prior to their departure. Each person's mattress comfort is different, and we have a couple of mattresses in stock to swap out if we become aware of an uncomfortable guest during one's stay. Our linens/towels are serviced by a company that also provides to local hotels in the neighborhood - we apologize for this guests experience and again, if we'd known - would have been happy to replace them with better quality.

- Johanna Gardner (innkeeper)

Perfect Stay

5 on July 16, 2008

The Inn on the Riverwalk was ideal as it is ideally located, clean, quaint, good food, friendly, helpful staff.

Great Location!

3.4 on June 25, 2008

Nice place in location directly on the riverwalk. The neighborhood is not much of a neighborhood however with tall condo towers and parking lots surrounding the inn. Room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom was small and tile had some mold and ceiling paint was peeling a little. Shower curtain did not even cover the entire opening. I'd stay there again.

small gem in middle of downtown

3.8 on June 24, 2008

lovely accommodations in middle of bustling downtown San Antonio. Lovely walk along river to main RiverWalk. If one wants to see it all, walk can be a tad long, especially in heat. Good to space your time so can return for rest then walk back. Very desirable to be close yet far enough from the hustle and bustle of tourists. Lovely serenity by the river. Hosts very accommodating.

A Great Place to Stay

4.4 on June 01, 2008

Charming bed and breakfast, located just a short walk from the Riverwalk. It was beautiful, our room was perfect, and Scott and Johanna were excellent hosts. It was quiet, peaceful, and very relaxing. We would definitely stay here again!

Nice quiet little place to relax, great attention to detail

4.6 on June 01, 2008

I booked this place as a surprise for my wife on our 2nd anniversary. On the reservation page there's a section where you tell them if it's a special occasion and if so, what the occasion is. So when we got to our room, there were rose petals in the shape of a heart on our bed and a "Happy Anniversary" card handwritten by the owners. Joanna, the lady that co-owns it and works the counter, was very friendly. Her mom also works there as the gardner/breakfast cook, and she is equally friendly. Breakfast was great! We had blueberry pancakes, bacon, sausage, fresh fruit, coffee, and various juices. You'll smell the food cooking about a half hour before breakfast officially starts, the scents seem to waft through the air in the mornings. The room we booked (#16) was a bit small compared to others I've been in, but it was decorated well, was comfortable, and very very quiet. We also had a nice little balcony overlooking the riverwalk which we shared with our neighbors to the left and right. If you're looking for a nice quiet little get away and still want to be on the riverwalk, this is a great place. I would highly recommend it.

Best choice by far

5 on May 25, 2008

What a wonderful stay, right on the river and a short safe walk to the clubs and restaurants on the busy section of Riverwalk. Scott and Johanna were very personable and the room was clean and well decorated. Far better choice than what was available for hotels this close to the action.

Customer service at a great B&B Texas

4.0 on April 25, 2008

Johanna and Scott Kiltoff are a hardworking young couple who excell ar customer service. Their genuine smiles are very welcoming and the rooms are very comfortable. From the flowers outside to the ones in every room, they bring a real "homey" touch to this quaint inn. You're a guest when you arrive and a friend when you leave!

memorable 30th birthday for my wife

5 on January 21, 2008

I surprised my wife with a trip to San Antonio and a stay at this Inn. They completely exceeded all of my expectations in every way. I asked them for a favor to set out pictures of my wife from childhood and when we got to the room, not only did they set them out, they put them out on the bed in and around a heart shape made of rose petals. They definitely went above and beyond the original request and showed that some places to care about customer service.

Christmas Break

If you want a comfortable Inn to stay at within easy walking distance from the River Walk this is the place to chose. I recommend the Penthouse with it's verrander and river views. Peter and Anne G.

I Wish I'd Found You First!

5 on October 25, 2007

While at a conference during the week, I stayed at one of the nice chain hotels on the Riverwalk. While pricy, it was close to the convention center. We stayed over the weekend for fun. When I looked around for something less expensive for the weekend, I was pleased to find Inn on the Riverwalk, which was also pretty close to the conference hotel. I was kicking myself to discover that it was such a great place, location, and price, and even included breakfast. How I wish I'd stayed there during the conference! It was so much less than the chain hotel, even at the discounted conference price, and just a short walk to the convention center. I really wished I'd found the Inn before booking at the chain. The Inn had all the amenities for the chain that I wanted and much more, and at much less money.

Relax, Unwind and SHOPPING!

4.0 on September 20, 2007

I have stayed at so many B&Bs I lost count. But I have never stayed somewhere like this before. After a long week of work, traffic and life's other junk I went to the Inn on the Riverwalk and literally melted! This is like being in the middle of nowhere, 10 minutes from the mall! My room was beautiful, clean and charming. It was just so peaceful you often thought you were alone on Earth. I was only a 10 minute walk from the mall.(on the very beautiful riverwalk). Everyone was so nice but Betty rocks! She makes the very best French Toast on Earth. I think I could smell it from my room! I work in the B&B industry, I visit a LOT of B&Bs but by far this is my very favorite place!

Romance on the River

4.6 on September 16, 2007

My husband and I stayed in the penthouse at this adorable B&B. It felt secluded and private but was just a short stroll down the riverwalk to all the clubs, restaurants and shops. And the hot, hearty breakfast was exceptional! This place has got to be the best kept secret in San Antonio!

This place was a life saver!

4.8 on September 16, 2007

My husband and I got into San Antonio on a Saturday afternoon and there were no rooms available or they were outragiouly priced at any of the several hotels we stopped at. Then I remembered this bed and breakfast that a couple of my girlfriends and I stayed at previously. It's just south of downtown and right on the river! When my husband and I got there, they had only one room left and it was extremely affordable. (Apparently there was a big event going on that particular weekend.) It is now under new management and the staff is very friendly. They were even willing to make arrangements so that we would have the room for another night if we chose to. They've expanded the property and were in the process of sprusing up the main home with a fresh coat of paint, but the rainy weather was keeping them from finishing that project. We were very thankful that the Inn on the Riverwalk was able to accomodate us with short notice and I know that we'll be staying there again when we visit San Antonio.

Beautiful, Romantic, Great location!!

5 on August 31, 2007

I had the wonderful pleasure of staying in the suite at this wonderful B&B. The bed was very comfortable and I particularly loved to deck with views of the Riverwalk. The location was great. It is just a few minutes walk to the hustle and bustle of the riverwalk, but the B&B is located off of the main strip so you still get the quite and privacy. I highly recommend it!

Outstanding location and accomadations!

5 on August 29, 2007

We stayed at the Inn on the Riverwalk this summer and we had the greatest time. Not only were the accomadations very nice but the location was spectacular. We were just a few minutes walk along the riverwalk to shopping and restaurants. We are planning to return to San Antonio later this year and we are planning to return to the Inn on the Riverwalk.

Charming B&B in beautiful setting

4.8 on August 24, 2007

I loved this B&B. It was totally charming and the service was excellent. And I was able to walk to all of the great attractions on the Riverwalk. I would recommend this to a fried absolutely.

Good location and value on River Walk

3.4 on July 22, 2007

Twenty paces to a beautiful part of the river walk - quiet and removed from the crowds, but only a five minute stroll along the river to reach the restaurants and clubs. Good breakfast buffet prepared fresh. Convenient no-cost parking. Some of the rooms are carved out of a big old house so light switches, bath room layouts, etc. can be little clunky, but location, service, and total cost make this a good choice - we'll be back.
