I stayed here for four nights with a incredible deal from booking.com. The location was great. You could walk or catch a bus, trolley or river taxi to any major attraction. Get an outside room as the interior rooms are noisy due to the lobby noise. I switched rooms ten minutes after checking into my interior room. My exterior room was too bright at night due to a street lamp right outside my window. However, I made it work. Curtains or shades would work better than the shutters. Breakfast was nothing special, so skip it at least once and take the river taxi to the Institute for Culinary Arts Cafe at the Pearl complex for breakfast. I had wonderful French toast with rum raisin sauce and coconut cream and one of the best hot chocolates ever. Prices are very reasonable. Don't forget to pick up a bakery treat for later. I had the XS cake and it was chocolate heaven.

Nice stay with convenience to site attractions. The rooms were tidy and clean. The only problem is if you book online through priceline they may not place you in the bed type you "requested." The breakfast was filling with make your own waffles, cereals fruits and juices!
The only complaint is that the staff weren't well-trained about the history of the hotel, hence, the stay wasn't "excellent."

Whoever designed the atrium of this hotel knew nothing about accoustics. We unluckily had a room overlooking the atrium. (Half of the hotel's rooms do this.) The hard floor, brick walls, and glass ceiling all magnify all sound in the lobby. We could hear every conversation 4 floors below. The first night a person decided to practice the piano at 4 am. The second night we had barking dogs. And last night, the bar was full, with loud customers right below until well after midnight.
I value my sleep, because I am here on business, and have long days.
If this doesn't bother you, then this is the place to stay. All of the good things the other reviews have said are true--great location, quaint, historic building, etc. But if sleep is important, don't let them put you on the atrium side.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Alamo.

Thank you for your review after your recent stay at the Crockett Hotel.

We think of our guests as visitors to our home and feel badly when their stay is not above their expectations. Obviously one critical aspect to any stay is a good nights sleep.

We will take steps to address the issues you mentioned in your review. We have signage on our piano preventing its use until after 10 am each morning. Our staff will watch more closely during late night hours so people do not decide that this is a good time to play on the piano. The bar entrance door may have been left opened, allowing the bar activity to be heard in the lobby. We will ensure we keep this door closed in late night periods as it is intended.

Thank you for your otherwise positive comments. We will continue to strive daily to improve our hotel product and service to provide the best accomodation for our guests in the future.

We made a good choice when we reserved a room at the Crockett Hotel. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, the room was clean and well kept, the towels were large enough to actually be used and the water pressure was just right. There were several choices for breakfast and it was very good. The hotel is across the street from the mall, the Alamo and many of the local attractions. It is 1 short block from the Riverwalk.

The staff at the Crockett (especially Shirley) went out of their way to make my 60th birthday get-together a great experience. Sixteen of us stayed there in eight rooms and everything worked out perfectly. We all had rooms overlooking the Alamo, which was neat, and we used a large room off of the lobby for my surprise party. The location is great and the free breakfast was a plus with a wide variety of food....the Texas shaped waffles were delicious! Everyone said they would definitely stay there again. Thanks for helping make my 60th such a fun event. Bob
