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!!

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.


Everything was fantastic!!

About the innkeepers

Born and raised in San Antonio, I enjoy good conversation, wine and travel. I'm a practicing dentist and in 2014 I acquired Inn on the Riverwalk, which was the first Bed and Breakfast I stayed at two decades ago. I enjoy providing a comfortable, friendly, home like stay in a unique setting for our guests. In my spare time, I enjoy the lake, beach and my kids.
