"Great grand hotel"
This beautiful and historic hotel could not be in a better location for a brief sight seeing trip to San Antonio. Right next to the Alamo and plaza and just 2 short blocks to the river walk. The staff were helpful and friendly, and the room and all public areas were well kempt.The room rate was very reasonable and afforded great value. Would definitely […] stay at this hotel again and would highly recommend it to others. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient-that's about all."
$18.95 per day for parking, $19.95 per day for breakfast. The room was small, the bathroom shower sprayed water everywhere. The only thing good about our stay was the convenient location. Denny's, two blocks away offered a 15% discount to AARP members, breakfast was there most days. Would not stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for location and price"
Overall we would stay here again. It is older and bathroom was small, but very clean comfortable. Shower was awesome with plenty of water pressure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Historic Menger Hotel"
This is a great hotel with rich Texas history located adjacent to the Alamo. The hotel is a great place to stay in San Antonio if you are interested in the downtown area. We loved it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Riverwalk"
Front Desk Staff was very helpful when my credit card declined. My room did have 2 bottles of Voss water that had already been opened because the seal was broken. Enjoyed my stay mostly because of the staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful Historic Hotel"
The Menger was an amazing place to stay. The room was surprisingly spacious and very comfortable. You can't beat the location. I would definitely stay here again. It's old but well, that's what you expect because it was built in the 1800s. It's a beautiful place to stay and can't be expected to have all of the amenities of a new hotel. It adds to the […] charm, I think. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had an enjoyable stay . Comfortable, clean and very helpful staff. Reasonable price for good location ! Sunday brunch was very tasty. Will be back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
beds were very comfortable however we noticed the double rooms cost more and are a lot roomier and more updated. we had a room with a king size bed and was pretty small.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"location and history"
I couldn't have picked a better location! close to the freeway and right in the middle of downtown. The history of the hotel is fascinating and I love that they stayed true to the look and feel of the era. I read a lot of reviews about the beds and I have to say they are much better than I was lead to believe. They have added down mattress covers and […] are very comfortable.

Historic hotel that is well kept and clean. Great location to Alamo, Riverwalk and Mall. Didn't have time to go on the Ghost tour, but heard many great things about that.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel"
Very nice stay, only issue was a sporadic internet connection. Would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel is nice"
Probably cannot complain for the price. The room was clean, Check in was okay. Parking was valet $28.00 plus tax. I parked in the Rivercenter garage for $18.00. The room was small. Maybe bigger then a cruise ship. I guess in the 1800's this would have been considered a high class room. The towels, glasses, etc. were exactly the right amount. The glasses […] for making drinks were even small. Nothing extra here. I would stay again, love the histtory, but would go for a bigger room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Customer Service- Bar none"
I can honestly say that this hotel has been one of the most pleasant stays I've ever enjoyed. I've been to many different hotels all over the world and this hotel's customer service blew me out of the water. I was traveling with my ailing grandmother and the hotel went absolutely above and beyond to ensure her comfort, from making sure that there was […] a wheelchair available for us at all times, to ordering a walker for us so that my grandmother could move around comfortably in the hotel. She loved the experience, as did I. I can honestly say that there is no other hotel that I will ever stay at in San Antonio if it's not at The Menger. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I really enjoyed the stay, however the hotel does not offer much. I didn't like the fact that you have to pay an extremely high amount to use the computer. Too much money for parking. The wait was too long to get your vehicle. Other than that the rooms are greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was great. It is very old and historic which we like. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was outstanding. The location was right in the middle of everything we wanted to do. It was next door to the Alamo, across the street from the Riverwalk, and within walking distance to San Fernando Cathedral. We would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Historic Hotel"
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed are stay. We plan to stay at the Menger again. Thank you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was good. Didn't understand why there are no towel bars in the bathroom. Furniture was scratched and dinged up. Found a roach in the room. Otherwise enjoyed breakfast & beds we're comfy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent historic location"
We enjoyed two days at the Menger in San Antonio. The location is central to everything that we had hoped to visit, the Alamo. Riverwalk, and other historical sites. We could walk to the King Williams historic neighborhood. We felt very safe in this location. The Menger Bar was interesting. We used the pool and lobby areas as they were quite comfortable. […] The only downside was poor wifi service. For travelors like us, we use our iPad to plan out our day every morning for walks, drives and sites. The Menger's wifi was spotty and non-existent at many times inside the hotel. Everything else was fine. We enjoyed the "old" side of the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel, perfect location"
My husband and I stayed the weekend here and had the most wonderful time! The hotel was so beautiful and we really enjoyed walking the main floor hallways to look at the historical items on display. The River Walk was a nice stroll away, and with a stop at the Alamo only took a few minutes. We loved having dinner over the river and dancing at some club […] after. We will definitely be back to stay at the Menger soon! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Menger Hotel Stay"
I was excited to stay next to the Alamo in the oldest hotel in Texas, however my expectations were not met. The room was small and the bed was a twin, too small. Both ice machines on my floor were broken for the whole weekend so I was forced to go upstairs for ice. Breakfast was $45 for eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, & juice. I could have eaten at Denny's […] 3 times for that price. The pool was way too hot, not refreshing at all. i will not be staying there in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Well maintained historic hotel. Convenient to river walk. A good value. Only wish there was a room safe.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very pleasant stay in an historic place"
We were in San Antonio closing on our new home and preparing for our upcoming move and had a lovely time at this hotel pool side w balcony was a great room. Pool water was really warm but my daughter loved itGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Even though the hotel was built in the 1800's, the hotel has been maintained very well. The lobby is connected to the shops, so you don't have to go out in the rain. The travel information center is also located next to the lobby. It has an outdoor pool and restaurant. It's within walking distance of the Riverway Mall with a food court, Riverwalk, Alamo, […] and other museums. The rooms have a TV and coffee maker, no refrigerator or microwave. But with all the food available, none is needed! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"we loved the Menger Hotel"
perfect location the staff was very helpful. just the history of the hotel is enough to bring me back loved the poolGenuine Hotels.com guest review
One of the most interesting hotels I have ever stayed at. I was amazed every time I walked through the lobby and halls. It is so historical and fascinating. I reccomend it, and would stay again. Very nice pool area too! Perfect location for a reasonable price! Try the mango ice cream.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great historical hotel located right in the middle of San Antonio within walking distance to River Walk.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Menger - San Antonio"
My wife and I were in San Antonio for the first time and wanted to check out the Alamo and the Riverwalk. The Menger hotel was perfect for us. Our room overlooked the pool and hot tub, but we stayed so busy during our 2-day stay that we didn't get to use them. The hotel was steeped in history in it's own right. We had a wonderful stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Down town San Antonio."
Other than the hi valet parking @ $38, it was a great stay. Historical views, walking distance from everything. ♡ it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cool historic hotel, near EVERYTHING!"
Cool hotel with ghost stories and in the mere center of SA. The building in front is The Alamo, Rivercenter Mall is the building behind. In Rivercenter starts a lovely river walk, with river taxis and lots of restaurants and bars. The restaurant is very interesting, its unique architecture plus a nice juicy 12 ounce rib eye steak, and a very good guitar […] player, playing world classic songs makes you feel very happy. My room at The Menger was nice, always tidy and also room service was always fast. I, definetly would like to stay again at The Menger if I go back to this nice city.

"Historic and Beautiful!"
The Menger Hotel is so Beautiful. It is located one block from the Riverwalk. You are across the street from the Alamo and next door to the Mall. The food and coffee are amazing. The pool area is clean and well kept. The fitness room was nice. There is a garden area that is right out of Better Homes and Gardens. All the staff were very helpful and kind. […] It was clean, the bed was comfortable. I will definitely stay again. Thanks to all the STAFF! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Next to Alamo, and riverwalk.. Very historic hotel"
Loved the hotel, we found that not many families stayed when we did, more couples, so fewer children. Love the heated pool!!! Having the Alamo next door and the riverwalk 1 block away was great, easy walking to everything. The hotel has such wonderful history, beautiful stained glass, paintings, staircases, I wish the hotel would invest in a nice book […] that tells the history of the hotel, with lots of photos!!

"Amazing Hotel with Excellent Customer Service"
The Menger is one of the most beautiful and well maintained historic hotels. Like most grand dames she has a past, historically speaking, and is proud to show it along the walls which makes for a fascinating stroll through the hotel. .Friendly, competent staff make for a quick check in and the rooms are spotless and comfortable. The Colonial Room serves […] great food and especially their Sunday brunch. The location is excellent with the Alamo next door and the Riverwalk a mere half block away. My favorite hotel in San Antonio. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"We expected more."
Maybe it was a room we stayed in but it didn't look to us like it was eight 1800s.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lots of history"
Due to the age to this hotel there is a lot of history and beautiful Lobby, however, the rooms were disappointing. No fridge, no safe. No temperature control in the room. It was a chilly 68 the entire stay. Apparantly, the entire "new" part of the hotel is on the same thermastat, according to the Hotel Manager.Genuine Expedia guest review
"not what it seemed"
I booked a room at this hotel because of it's history, but the pictures they have of the rooms and building are way off. They seemed to be from a better looking hotel. It needs basic upgrades. I don't think I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I had a great time staying @ The Menger Hotel... Everything was walking distance... Alamo across the street, the mall at the back door along with Morton's Steak house, and you could get to the river walk thru the mall... I will stay here again very soon....Genuine Expedia guest review
good location - older building so thin walls and loud toilets but all in all good experience especially for the price and so close to river walk / alamo etc..Genuine Expedia guest review
Best San Antonio stay ever. Close to everything. Weather was outstanding. Not too many children (school still in session). Riverwalk was entertaining. Architecture was more than I expected. More to this hotel than rooms, spa and the usual.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very quirky and cool"
Located in the heart of San Antonio and a must stay for those who thrive on history. Kept up very well, and an overall very charming environment.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I enjoyed my stay at the Hotel. It is realy at the center of everything to see. I was suprised when I saw that my account was charged extral $60.39 when I was told I did not owe anything when I checked out of the Hotel. I still do not know what is this charge for. I demand to be refunded.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a location!"
We had trouble with the cooling and they promptly moved us to a suite at no extra cost. Enjoyed the historical aspects...Rough Riders, cowboys and ghosts.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Riverwalk Experience"
The Hotel history is amazing and wonderful to teach your children. The stay was very comfortable and the employees were friendly and kind. It brings back the history of building development.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
What makes this hotel so special is the history. You can feel it when you walk into the hotel... you can see it as you walk through the lobby. You can taste when you sit in the bar. The Menger Hotel, the Alamo, and the Riverwalk make San Antonio come alive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
