The best thing about the hotel is its proximity to the Alamo; when on the Alamo property you often glimpse the Crockett Hotel in fact, about 20% of the rooms overlook the Alamo. The second best thing is that it is possibly haunted. The room I was first offered smelled of mold and had a view of the interior courtyard; a gracious front desk employee moved me to a room with a view of the restaurant across the street. The rooms need to be updated and refreshed. The pool, while extremely small, is across the street nestled in a garden like setting.
