Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DeeLynn We loved our stay.
Nice staff. Clean room. Loved the pool. It is walking distance from the River Walk. I didn't like paying for parking because I was told if you are a IHG member it is free. Clean and comfortable. Good breakfast, helpful staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jks521 Great stay
We stayed in May 2014. Staff was excellent and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. This was an excellent location short walk to the riverwalk. This was great because you don't have to deal with the traffic or noise on the riverwalk when you are ready for bed. We walked to riverwalk for every meal with no problem. We also walked to the Alamo. Parking was no issue thanks to being a member got free parking. However even if you have to pay for parking it's half the price per night than hotels directly on the riverwalk. Breakfast was excellent plenty of choices, it was busy and smaller eating area but we always prefer to eat in our room anyway. Will happily stay here when in San Antonio.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RonnieZ What a Great Stay
I first want to thank the desk clerk for having such a great personality. Pricilla ( 2-10 shift ) you are a great person to have working the front desk. I know each person that walks in that magic door gets the best care that is available from you.
The room was clean and very comfortable. You could not ask for a more historic place and the walk to the river walk and market is just the easiest.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Historic location in downtown San Antonio
We stayed at this Holiday Inn Express on a Friday night and it was very comfortable and the staff was exceptional. Monique at the front desk was very friendly and efficient in checking us into our rooms and very helpful in directing us to the Marketplace for Mexican food, only two blocks away. The next morning Monica was the cook on duty for the delicious breakfast. She made sure we were well-fed and was very friendly to all the guests, while making sure all the food items were replenished promptly. Staying in an old jail might not appeal to everyone, but the Holiday Inn Express has preserved the history of the building while providing modern comforts.

We arrived early into the morning and slept in we were headed to our son's Navy MA graduation the next day. That morning we were downstairs when breakfast was being put away. Ms. Monica took the time to get breakfast back out for us and gave us great advice on the area during Fiesta. We would recommend this historic site for anyone's stay.

Me hospedé con mi familia y nos sorprendió lo bien ubicado dentro de la zona turística de San Antonio. Si vale lo que pqagué. Un edificio histórico, con instalaciones cómodas y habitaciones amplias. Personal amable, superó mi espectativa al hacer una pregunta. No me cobraron tarifa extra de estacionamiento por ser miembro del Club. El lote de estacionamiento es muy confuso y pequeño.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cdoro75 Nice, basic hotel. Very clean
We stayed in San Antonio for a short family vacation. The hotel was very clean and well maintained. All the staff were courteous and professional. A wonderful breakfast included with our stay! Only complaint was the temperature of the small outdoor pool. It was too hot for my two children to enjoy, it was like a very warm bath. Overall, satisfied with our stay.

Great location - handy to Riverwalk, Alamo and other attractions
for visitors/tourists. Hotel facilities were great and the staff were
courteous, pleasant and helpful. Price is commensurate with
location and conveniences. You will not be disappointed to
book this location for your stay in downtown San Antonio.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GiGi03 Great time and reasonably priced.
The hotel was conveniently located and within walking distances to the Alamo and the River Walk. The limited handicap parking was an issue at times. Other than that, clean and friendly staff. Would definitely stay again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Harmony&Balance I wouldn't stay again
I checked in tired and needing to take a nap before a business obligation later. I had no shower curtain in my room. I called the front desk. 15 minutes later I found a housekeeper on my floor to tell her, It took a total of about an hour to get a shower curtain....no nap for me. The mirrored closet door would not stay shut and was between the bed and the bathroom making for a fun trip to the bathroom in the dark. The next day the housekeeper neglected to replace the coffee packs that I had used in my room. Then while I was at my desk doing some work on my computer, they swapped out my chair and gave me a freshly cleaned one...that was soaking wet. I was told "it should dry in a couple hours". That ended my work for a while. The room was very small. Noise carried.
I left the hotel a day earlier than planned and went to another hotel in the area. I won't stay here again, but the ghosts that are there did not bother me. Yes, the hotel used to be a jail and there were people executed there by hanging.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by D...Me Couldn't wait to CHECK OUT!
If sleep is what you expect in a hotel DO NOT STAY AT THE H.I.E. Riverwalk!
I will clarify that ALL staff was (or attempted to be) as helpful as possible EXCEPT FOR THE MANAGER, who seemed not to care at all about our concerns regarding noise in the hotel. Eric was VERY disrespectful & would not even stand up & look at us while talking when we were trying to find a resolution to the problem. . . people creating too much noise by letting (automatically closing) doors SLAM SHUT (both guests and employees). Also had to deal with: people using exercise room before (5:30am) and after (11pm) posted hours (that door lock is not on a timer), people congregating in hallway after late night partying - obviously drunk & quite disorderly.
Note this is an old historic building & the AC units are not on outside walls - no fresh air can get into your room, because they also prohibit you from opening the old windows. This was a problem when the AC unit started dripping water on our electric/electronic/computer connections. Maintenance took >4 hours to replace the unit - we could not use our room during that time.
This door locking/closing problem can easily be fixed by a small mechanical adjustment (or, God Forbid: instructing guests to be courteous of others) - if only the Management cared about such things! But, hey, once they have your money - what do they care!
Have NEVER experienced problems like this at any H I E, but certainly can't be sure it won't happen again at another location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amanda RC unique history and excellent service
I really enjoyed my stay here. The rooms were a little dated but clean and honestly the best shower i have had in a while. We stayed there in February and the pool and hottub were so warmthis hotel is within walking distance of most attractions . The best part of our hotel experience was twofold. One was the excellent staff, kind courteous and friendly. (Eric, Adrian, and monica especially) .two is the history behind this particular building...fascinating. all in all if i ever return to San Antonio I will definitely be booking the holiday inn express on camaron street

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chicago1964 Cold Trip to San Antonio
We spent 6 nights at this property and it was a great stay. The staff was wonderful especially Eric, Monique, Simon and the woman who prepares breakfast (I did not catch her name). The older gentleman who works overnight could take a lesson from them and learn to smile and speak on occasion. Each time we entered or left we were wished a good day and greeted. The rooms and the lobby were exceptionally clean. Loved having a refrigerator and microwave in the room. The location was great, close enough to walk to everything but away from the noise. The parking is convenient and Simon is great, if the lot happens to be full he will make sure you get a space and usually a better one than you left. He overheard me telling grumpy gus (the older overnight guy who never wears a name tag) that the guest washing machine was not working. Grumpy Gus just said thanks, did not ask if I lost money or offer any suggestions, Simon pointed to a room and said we were welcome to use those washers for free. Now THAT is customer service. I declined because it was late. The breakfast was free and always good, loved the pancake machine.
The only negative to our stay was the fact that there was no service to rent movies in the room. The weather was freezing so instead of being out as we planned we spent all our nights in the room. Would have loved to have had the ability to rent movies as almost every hotel I have stayed in for the last ten years has some sort of movie rental available.
Quiet, clean, friendly and a great value. Would definitely stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GoldenEye1 Great Location in San Antonio
I was very impressed with my stay at this property which was unique since it was originally an historic jail. Enough of the original details were retained to make it quite an interesting stay. It has a very good location in the heart of San Antonio and an easy walk to the River Walk and fine restaurants. Parking was easy with a secure lot right across the street. This was an excellent value for the price of the stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Satisfied Overall! Broken elevator
We had no complaints other than the elevator broke and your staff called quickly to have someone come out. Unfortuanately we had to carry several large bags down, but not anything you could help. In fact staff saw me and helped me.
So you have an awesome staff that all worked hard to make our stay comfortable.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Happy Photo Very unsatisfactory experience
Hotel was not up to expectations!!!!
Insufficient hot water for two days in a row. Hotel personnel had to reset boiler. Insufficient parking for hotel guests. Had to park in handicapped space. Area for unloading vehicle was extremely narrow. Loaded luggage cart had to be pushed up ramp. Shower was very poor. In all it was a very unsatisfactory experience, and was the worst HI Express we stayed in.
