"Menger Hotel is a wonderful Hotel & Museum Piece"
My second stay at the Menger. - Wonderful hotel and Spa for something that is 150+ years old. - Sits adjacent to the Alamo and within walking distance to the River Walk and great dining and shoping. - Affordable rates for San Antonio and its not just a hotel - Its a museum! The Antigue furniture and decor is Amazing. - My room had an Antigue Bed (Modern […] Mattress) and furniture that was incredible. Like a stroll back to yesteryear.

"great place to stay"
This grand old hotel has so much charm and great location close to all our activities. The room was kept clean, the breakfasts were very good. Spa, fitness center and pool were great to have in the heat of the day. Would stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A historic stay"
Excellent location central to many things to do and the Alamo is across the street! Was really clean and in good shape for a place built in 1859 and the staff are all courteous and professional. Believe it or not, I was able to catch some nice pics of ghosts at the hotel and at the Alamo. We will be going back soon and bringing more friends and fam […] ily.

"History and ghosts"
If you are looking for a luxe hotel with modern ammenities the Menger is not for you. BUT if history, charm, antiques, friendly staff -and the chance to spot a ghost is interesting to you - this centrally located hotel is ideal! I enjoyed my stay and will be back! Special thanks to Eddie and Ophelia!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Brought a colleague from Scotland on his first trip to Texas! He loved The Menger and is a fan of TR!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The three of us; myself, my sister, and my cousin all had a great time. The Menger is a wonderful piece of history and it is very well maintained. Very clean rooms and terrific staff. The showers were clean and water hot. The beds were comfy. All of it was grand!Genuine Expedia guest review
"We had a good stay."
Very minor problem with key not working and a slow sink in bathroom. The staff was excellent and the hotel is charming. We decided not to go in the pool that was pretty cold. We thought the bar was beautiful but being by the bathrooms it seemed to have a weird odor. We had drinks elsewhere. Food in the dining room was wonderful. Sunday we got up late […] and missed a la carte and didn't want a full blown buffet. We wanted coffee and sweet rolls or a small breakfast. This hotel is fabulous in location being across from the Alamo, most transportation options, the River Walk and IMAX which had a great feature on The Alamo. The people who work there are very gracious and helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was fun staying in an historic hotel. The air conditioner was cold and loud and ran continuously which caused me to have have an amazing nights sleep. The shower was amazing, lots of pressure and lots of water. And did I say it is right next to the Alamo and the start of the hop a bus. Staff very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"glorious old hotel"
The Menger is a beautiful old hotel that has seen better days. The rooms are clean but a bit worn. I noticed frayed carpets and it was just dated. But the showers were hot and none of those low flow heads! The AC worked great (a must for San Antonio) and the beds were very comfortable. Removations are under way so it would be worth checking back at […] some point Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Just stayed there on my last leg into Houston. Menger is always comfortable and service with a smile. Welcomed my dog and me. great rest.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent historic hotel"
Right next to the Alamo and the San Antonia River Walk, this beautiful hotel is like a museum where you can use the inventory. Live in a historically decorated room and enjoy excellent food in the hotel restaurant. Wi-Fi is included and is fast. Absolute top notch all around.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome visit..part of history!"
Had an awesome time..convenient to riverwalk. .alamo...and tours. Felt the history and even the presence of the ghosts!Genuine Expedia guest review
"The room was too small"
At the price of the room it was too small, had no coffee pot no micro wave or refrigerator and the temperature could not be adjusted so it was so cold that my wife and I came down with sore throats the staff was terrible at giving directionsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the River Walk"
We were there for a wedding at the hotel and enjoyed all the hotel had to offer. Very pleasantGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location for all the must-see sights"
The front desk staff was like family! LOVED THEM especially Diego! My daughter and I would ONLY stay at this hotel if we visit San Antonio again. Perfect location and centralized to all fabulous sights - RiverWalk, Mall, Alamo, museums and districts.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great location and history, average tourist hotel"
As a San Antonio native I can safely say this is an awesome place with a lot of history and heritage. It is one of the must-see sights steps away from the must see sight of San Antonio. It has a lot of awesome perks like pool and bar, but it's not the "must stay" place it used to be. I would recommend it for a short stay for the history and ghost/haunted […] factor. The rooms are small and it has gotten a little dingy but it's still nice for an out of town family. The area is almost too touristic to stay there for an extended period of time.

Historical hotel that has some excellent public areas. Rooms are a little small, but ok for single traveler. Fitness equipment needed some work, but was serviceable. Clean. Next door to the Alamo. Comfy bed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was in a great location and well maintained. I did not appreciate paying $30 a day to have my car sit on their property.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Menger, the only place to stay."
This was our third time staying at the Menger, and enjoy it more each time we stay there. Being right in the heart of the city, not to mention right next to the Alamo, makes this the place to stay. Our room was very clean and the hotel was always in great shape. You will not regret your stay at this historic hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"TOO MUCH HISTORY"
Top destination for Texas Independence History...1859Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Needs a freshen up"
I'm certainly not an advocate for completely gutting historic properties but carpet, paint and upholstery needs to be freshened every decade or so, and my beloved Menger is overdue. Still a nice if slightly funky place to stay and usually a good value in an increasingly expensive San Antonio.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to down town"
Shower head sprayed water all over the bathroom, tub wouldn't drain while trying to shower,was charged an extra $50 a night upon check in and the total cost for valet parking for my stay even though I wasn't goin to use it the entire stay which equaled to over $300 I wasn't told I. Would be charged for. Little single cup coffee maker that would spill […] coffee everywhere but the cup. The only decent thing about the hotel was it was close to the river walk and had a nice commons area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We arrived late and regret we didn't have time to enjoy the hotel accommodations and features as much as we should have. It was nice to have a souvenir store on site as well as a bar, although the historic bar was loud and crowded, and for that reason is more suited to a younger dating crowd. We were across the street from the Alamo and family entertainment […] and only minutes on foot from the Riverwalk. A very convenient location for seeing downtown San Antonio. I would recommend it to anyone who is coming to San Antonio, especially if only staying one night. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Satisfied in San Antonio-Superb location to everyt"
Our stay at this hotel was very enjoyable. Loved the Historical aspects of the entire area, and after a hot day of sightseeing, what a way to relax beside the beautiful pool and gardens. The lobby was breathtaking in beauty and the historical significance of the lobby made the stay even more enjoyable! Close to everything we wanted to see: The Alamo […] - right across the street, the Riverwalk only a block away, the buses and sightseeing tours just around the corner.

"Great historic hotel."
If you want history, this hotel is for you. Ghosts and all!Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is an historic hotel next door to the Alamo. If you are looking for classic this place is for you. The room was small and the bathroom was for one. Closet door and bathroom door can't be open at the same time but the lobby and staff made up for the size of the room. We had a front room and thought it would be loud but didn't hear a thing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very Interesting historic hotel"
I loved the pool.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice historic hotel"
Whereas the rooms are clean and reasonably renovated, the hallways, elevator and HVAC in the public areas could be much improved.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Historic family Trip, see the Alamo"
Perfect place to stay for us. We only had 1 night and 2 half days to explore and show our 10 year old the sites.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Quaint older hotel full of history"
We loved our stay at this hotel! It was so quaint and full of history. They honestly had the best staff I have ever seen. Customer service was top notch! We were served in a timely, friendly manner. They have the best pool in downtown San Antonio with a pool side wait staff to serve us. We really loved our stay and can not wait to go back!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel, close to all the great tourist areas."
Good experience considering it was being remodeled. The hot water in the shower was inconsistent. The Alamo, shopping, places to eat and the Riverwalk were all nearby and all within walking distance. The only bad thing was the parking, the fees were atrocious and too expensive.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a sweet place to stay for a short visit. Due to the age of the Hotel it might be uncomfortable for long periods of stay. The shower I had would give pockets of really hot then really cold water.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was our first time staying at the Menger, the location is awesome. My only complaint is the room was a little outdated and I felt the towels should have been replaced (old and stained). The staff was friendly and the ambiance was great! We would stay again and plan too!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I just love everything about this hotel! The staff are so nice and everything is hassle free. They truly care about their guests. The Menger bar is wonderful and the atmosphere is great. The location of this hotel can't be beat! Right in the middle of everything and you can walk everywhere. This is definitely a boutique hotel that I will always chose […] to stay at. Thanks, Menger for a wonderful anniversary trip with my husband! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is very nice but the rooms are small and the jacuzzi is above the ground. Food is very good and the bar is also goodGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect vacation hotel"
Had a wonderful experience. My family made regular visits to the hotel from mid 50s to early 70s. Great memories then and made more on our recent visit. Planning to book soon for Christmas holidays. Location is perfect for downtown events and travel to other locations is easy. The rooms were great, service wonderful. Only negative, no ghosts.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Historical hotel next to the Alamo"
I booked the Menger Hotel through Expedia with my flight. The hotel was even more beautiful than I expected. It was so historical as well. To think that I was sitting where Teddy Roosevelt had organized his Rough Riders was just amazing. My flights were delayed both ways but the stay at this hotel made up for those inconveniences. The Menger Hotel was […] in a perfect location for walking and sightseeing. It was near everything! I will stay there again for sure! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful historic hotel"
The Menger is a beautiful historic hotel. Though the rooms were small the beds were very comfortable. Unfortunately the bathroom leaked everywhere and all the towels were used to mop up the floor. I was also under the impression (from the ad) that I could get a view of the Riverwalk from my room, but this hotel is not on the Riverwalk. (Riverwalk is […] across the park and down the stairs, not at all visible). Food and Bar were nice, and it had a full size pool. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
