Stayed here for five nights on a work trip. Location: quick walk to the convention center, across the street from a Riverwalk entrance, McD and Subway right next door, walking distance from convenient stores, Ripley's, Alamo etc. Accommodations: Super comfortable bed, very clean, AC worked well (and you need it in July), even the towels were nice not […] rough and dry, mini fridge, blow dryer, iron & ironing board, desk, it's super cute old fashioned place overall, they have a good breakfast, quiches, oatmeal, cereal, bagels, fruit, scones, coffee, tea, juice, milk, more than I thought, they give you lemonade and cookies in the afternoon, wine in the evening. Staff: Friendly, nice, helpful Overall: If I ever go back to San Antonio, I'm staying here hands down. A very home like atmosphere better than a chain hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Perfect for a weekend get-a-way! It is so closer to all of the Riverwalk restaurants than any other hotel! Walking distance to everything we needed for the weekend! The staff is very helpful and nice. It felt like staying at a home rather than a hotel. Breakfast was homemade, and they had fresh cookies and lemonade in the afternoons. Wonderful, wonderful […] time! I highly recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"In the center of San Antonio"
Great location, we walked everywhere to include the tower of the Americas. It's only steps away from the river walk and the Alamo. The hotel is quiet and comfortable, blending modern convenience with the classic architecture of the city. The staff is friendly and courteous, always aiming to please. They provide snacks and wine every afternoon and the […] included breakfast was fresh and delicious. Only down side is that there is no hotel parking and we were challenged to find public parking on the 4th of July with the crowds. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right across from the street from the Riverwalk"
The Riverwalk Vista is a great place to stay. Extremely clean, very comfortable, nice staff. Good breakfast, drinks always available (coffee, tea, water), lemonade and cookies in the afternoon, free wine in the evening. Not much to look at on the outside but the inside is full of antiques, rooms are spacious, bathroom is very updated and large, bed […] super comfortable. Every review I read before said the rooms were noisy. I didn't think so. I could hear some cars on the street but that's it - and not something I found disturbing. Really enjoyed my stay here and it was way closer to attractions than many big name hotels. I could walk everywhere and I saw and did everything. Hotel is right across the street from the River Walk and one street over from the Alamo. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was a wonderful departure from cookie cutter chains. The location couldn't be better for San Antonio downtown destinations. It seemed more like a bed and breakfast. I would definitely stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"San Antonio Sleeper"
The property is very charming and the location is excellent. The stair access for entry into the hotel was a little challenging for my elderly parents but they loved the history of the building and friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"truly memorable hotel"
This is a true gem. Hotel is a historic landmark that was renovated with loving care and thoughtful design touches. Located right in the heart of San Antonio, overlooking the Riverwalk and close to the Alamo. Not for sensitive sleepers as neighborhood can be noisy, but just a fantastic place to stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely historical hotel at the riverwalk"
Fab location and lots of atmosphere in this Eco-conscious historical mansion on the waterfront. Comfy beds, all mod cons, scrumptious breakfast. We even got an upgrade to the largest room.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was in town for work but my boyfriend traveled with me. This hotel is wonderful. The staff was wonderfully pleasant!! The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was beautiful, we loved the building is older and there was a card with the history of the building. Parking is a block away but easy for us as we were in walking distance of everything we needed. […] We will definitely stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We stayed 3 nights 4 days in San Antonio, and was very impressed with the Riverwalk Vista. The location was perfect for everything we were wanting to do and see. The service at the Inn was phenomenal! We are already planning another trip to San Antonio and will definitely be staying at the Riverwalk Vista!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Adorable hotel! Great breakfast, cookies, wine!! Must stay here when in San Antonio!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Would totally recommend to anyone."
I was not expecting the River Walk Vista to be as nice as it was but I was pleasantly surprised. My husband and I loved staying here and would love to come back for a visit in the future. It's located right off of the River Walk which is really nice and the inside is decorated in a rustic home-like feel. Our room was perfect and we felt like we were […] staying at someone's house instead of a hotel. The breakfast was a nice add on along with the glass of wine before going out for dinner. I would totally recommend to anyone that is looking for a great experience in San Antonio. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Location was very convenient, the inn itself is very charming. There are a lot of small details that really show how much though the owners/staff put into it. The breakfast is pretty good and the rooms are spacious with tall ceilings.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly staff, great location, great food"
My wife and I stayed at Riverwalk Vista, we were in San Antonio for a retreat and came a couple of days early just for the two of us. The staff was so helpful, directing us to great restaurants and sights to see. Free wi-fi. The food at breakfast was very good, the hospitality time from 5-8pm included free wine and other drinks. The hotel has a lot […] of character, which was a nice change from staying in other hotels, which are really all the same. Our room was at the end of a hallway and we felt like we were the only ones on the floor. Plenty of little sitting areas for sipping wine or reading. The Riverwalk was right across from our hotel, the Alamo was two blocks away, everything we wanted to see was within walking distance. The only complaint is that the street outside the hotel is busy through the night, but with the air conditioner and fan running, the sound proof glass and shades the hotel installed, it really wasn't too much of an issue for us. For those who are light sleepers, it may not be the best location. We would recommend this hotel to our friends and family and will stay there again when we return to San Antonio.

"Wonderful two day getaway"
We loved the hotel for its historical significance, the location so near the Alamo, RIverwalk, and downtown. The breakfast was one of the best we have ever eaten. The staff was very helpful. Everyone we met in San Antonio was very friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A wonderful experience"
The Riverwalk Vista is a wonderful experience. Breakfast in the morning, cookies in the afternoon and wine in the evening all included. The location is perfect. Right across the street from the Riverwalk and only a couple of blocks from the Alamo. The parking situation is a negative, however. If at all possible, do not drive to the hotel, take a cab. […] There is a loading zone in front of the building, but only for two cars and it is usually full. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and were directed to a nearby parking garage, but it was also full. Spent another half hour waiting for a spot to open up in the garage.

You feel like your having a room in a family house, but with total independence. I got shocked and suspicious when i arrived since there was no reception, but as soon as you get in, u feel how special it is. Location is great as well.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Loved this Hotel"
Listed as one of Americas Historic hotels with modern bathrooms and furnishing. A must stay, good for business and leisure. I highly recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel with great staff!"
We really enjoyed the hotel this past weekend. Great location right near the River walk entrance. Three great bars with 100 yards. Really cool rooms with comfortable beds, pillow, etc. Updated for older hotel and had a lot of history. Only possible negative is they do not have on sight parking and on a busy weekend made things a bit difficult.Genuine Expedia guest review
We loved the place and the set-up. Great room! Quiet too. But, the parking or lack there of, is annoying. We had to pay $24 to be in the city lot over night. Thank you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charcater and convenience"
This hotel is wonderful! It's close to the Riverwalk, the Alamo and shopping! It was full beautiful character with the original exposed brick. It's a small, but very secure. Loved every minute. :-)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet stay, right next to everything"
I definitely recommend this bed and breakfast! It was so cute and personalized - I loved the older style building (without all the negative aspects of an older building). You're basically staying on the riverwalk, and even with a bar two doors down, there was no real road noise. I slept like a babe! Cookies in the afternoon, wine in the evening, and […] a personally cooked breakfast. This place was very charming and I'm so glad I stayed here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A surprising find"
This is a first-rate hotel. It is sharply decorated and the staff is very friendly and helpful. It is steps away from Rivderwalk. Don't let the steps and the door bell that greet you upon arrival throw you off. Go ahead and ring that bell. You will be entering into a lovely experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The experience was very enjoyable. The amenities and food were wonderful. The only negative is the lack of parking. You must park one block away. We will definitely recommend the Vista to others.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Needle in a hay stack"
Upon arriving, the innkeeper enthusiastically helped me with my bag & called me by my first name. When she showed me my room, there was a teddy bear nestled among my pillows. That,...spoke volumes to me. The historic inn's playful & comfortable sense was clearly personal with that gesture. The room's 15 foot ceilings didn't compromise the warmth of […] the space regardless of 32 degree weather outside! A journal was also available for you to leave comments about your stay. These are all the things that mainstream hotels can't & don't offer you. . . . I loved it! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel! Walking distance to many of the main touristy areas, very nice and accommodating staff, rooms and hotel smelled and felt really clean, loved the historic feel of the place and décor, great continental breakfast, and reasonably priced! Would definitely stay again! Would prefer to stay here any day instead of the big chain hotels in the […] area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A hidden jowl in the middle of the city"
Don't be fool by the exterior of this hotel because once you get inside this hotel, you will be exposed to the friendliest staff and gorgeous interior architecture: from the wooden stairs (I just used the stairs instead of the elevator because the simple use of it made me feel like royalty), to the wooden floor, this hotel is awesome. You will get an […] excellent breakfast buffer with cold and hot items to chose from, fruits, cereals, juices, a wide selections of tea, and many other things. Around tea time, you will get fresh hot cookies and coffee/tea or hot coco. And around five, you will get white or red wine. At any time, there is coffee, water and tea for you. The common area is spacious, never felt crowded and you have a newspaper (to be shared with others). The rooms are wonderful, comfortable beds, with AC and and big and spacious walk in showers big enough for 2 ;-) Needless to say, we had a great time at that hotel. The staff is super friendly and wiling to go that extra step to make your stay even better. You do get access to a local pool and a gym ... however, I did not try neither of them so I cannot comment about the quality and distance from the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
My wife and I spent Christmas week at the Vista and could not have been happier with our selection. Centrally located in town, across the street from the Riverwalk and full of historical photos only added to the great accommodations and very friendly staff. Our 2 sons really liked the furnishings and room comfort along with the various seating areas […] to read, enjoy wine and just hang out and watch the people enjoy the city below. This was our first trip to San Antonio and when we return we will go back to the Vista. While looking for places to stay, I liked the small room count but was not sure what to expect. Well, believe me it is well worth it. In my opinion much better than the high rise, fancy hotels that are all around the area. From the home cooked pastries, coffee and friendly Innkeepers sitting down to talk and get to know each other - to the really nice rooms with fantastic showers (big part of my impression of a hotel) - all around it is a winner! Our room was on the 3rd floor so we just walked out to get coffee and treats. Wife and son loved the "cookie of the day" and they put out wine every day @ 5 pm to enjoy. Make a reservation - you won't regret it! Dal & Susie - Chatham, NY Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Someone Please Open a Window"
The hotel is cute, historic, & very close to the Riverwalk, an entrance being across the street. The lady I met upon check-in was very nice, & the breakfast they provided was wonderful. I appreciated that they had a diverse tea selection, & that they let it be available at all hours, as unfortunately we often had to leave very early in the morning to […] get to Lackland AFB for my sister's ceremonies, so we couldn't get breakfast. Also, the afternoon homemade cookies are AWESOME. Despite all these nice things that the hotel had to offer, the room itself was dismal. It smelled somewhere between wet dog and mold. We ended up spending most of my time at my parent's hotel instead simply because we couldn't handle the smell of our room too long. The first night I thought maybe it was because the room hadn't been rented in some time, & it would go away the next day when the cleaning lady came in. It didn't. The windows are sealed shut, presumably as part of noise-proofing from the busy street below. (It neighbors a McDonald's which usually had loud teenagers & drunk people at night) No air + terrible smell means not much sleep, & the bed sheets felt slightly damp at all times, much like when you don't run them long enough in the dryer. I think that was more from absorbing the moisture in the air however. I really want to recommend this place, but room comfort is a pretty basic requirement that needs to be fulfilled before considering amenities. Find a way to let in air into the rooms!

"Old building but very comfortable and accomodating"
Only there for one night. Neat old historic building that's been converted into a hotel. Easy access to the Riverwalk and although parking is an issue it's not very far from the parking garage, less than a block. Only issue we had was from the road noise especially at 1:30-2am when the city crew decided to power scrub the sidewalks directly below our […] 3rd story window. The staff was very accommodating and knowledgeable about the area and gave great suggestions on places to see and things do in our short visit. Breakfast was awesome, and although not a lot to choose from it was very filling delicious. If we make it back down there we will more than likely be back to this hotel but will ask for a interior room or non street side room if possible. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Felt like home"
Great location, clean rooms, friendly staff- we felt so comfortable-like we were homeGenuine Expedia guest review
The Riverwalk Vista was a wonderful inn (more than a regular hotel). The staff, Pat, Catherine, David, were friendly and very helpful about where to eat, where to go and how to get there. Breakfasts were ample with some special dish made every morning. Water was replenished in the room refrigerator every day. The ambience was very San Antonio - in an […] old, historic building that is located in the heart of SA with a quick walk to the Alamo and the Riverwalk. We would recommend this place to one and all.

Riverwalk Vista is in a great location by the Riverwalk and Alamo. The breakfast was good and the evening wine offering was a nice touch. The hotel staff was excellent. It was a great alternative to a more pricey hotel on the Riverwalk. The room was very spacious, as well as the bathroom.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Home away from home."
The staff was fabulous - extremely accommodating and helpful with tips on worthwhile sights, how to get around and even insider tips. The attention to details - breakfast, snacks, home made lemonade and goodies, teddy bear on bed and rubber duckie in the bathroom- makes you feel as if you're going home to a cozy, familiar place after a tiring conference, […] meetings and sightseeing tours. The interior decoration is absolutely charming and gives you an impression of what the local, older homes could possibly look and feel like. The only downside is the poor internet access and dim lighting in the room if you have to do work and access emails. But otherwise I highly recommend staying here for a relaxed, homey and even romantic stay in a beautiful city. Oh, the location is unbeatable in terms of getting to the sights, Riverwalk, other major hotels and conference center for business meetings. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Overnite site seeing"
Oversized rooms, nice. Location good. Staff very accommodating. Hotel is an old warehouse and has some quaint characteristics. It is old so do not expect a modern room, although it was clean. To enter you must go up 10 steps which is difficult if you have large luggage pieces. Parking is also off site at a parking garage across and down the street. […] Cost is $12/nite with no in/out or you pay again. Most would not need as everything is pretty much within walking distance. Breakfast good and added touches of cookies and wine in the afternoon.

I loved this hotel. It was located right in the heart of all the activity on the river walk. It is a small hotel and feels very intimate. I rarely saw another person in the hall. The rooms are gorgeous with tons of character from being an old historic building. Loved the hard wood floors and brick walls. Bed was comfortable and they provide many complimentary […] things...such as free wifi, snacks in the lobby everyday, wine in the evening and breakfast in the morning including a hot dish. There is not a river walk entrance to the hotel. You have to come up to street level but it is right there when you come up the stairs from the river walk. I would definitely stay here again. I love boutique hotels and hotels a little different than the normal chains. This one didn't disappoint. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice historic hotel"
The building was a neat old structure. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The cookies and lemonade in the afternoon were a nice suprise. The breakfasts were ok but the "hot dish" tended to be very small portions. The downside; the bedroom was only lit with 3 small lamps so was dark t read or use your leptop unless right under a lamp. The hotel is […] on a busy street and the trolly bus stopped frequently below my window for several minutes of rumbling (though after 9:00 it stopped). The air conditioner was loud but that decreased the bus noise. There was no wi-fi and had to check out a cord to get internet service. The staff was friendly and helpful. Liked the keypad front door and the riverwalk right across the street. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
