    Cute hotel. Didn't realize we had to pay for parking. Breakfast was not the greatest. Apples were bad, hash browns were not fully cooked. Maybe because everything was cooked in the microwave. The city view was the parking lot.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Awful experience

    After arriving from dinner, we discovered a dirty room (items and trash from previous guests), dirty surfaces, mold on the walls, no blankets in the room, and had to kill a live roach in our room. They have a sign upon arriving that masks are mandatory, yet they do not enforce it, as none of the other guests were wearing masks. They charge $20 for their cramped, uncovered parking lot, $10 per person for breakfast, and charge you if you do not return the key card. We ended up leaving with our children to find another hotel. When letting the front desk know of our decision, there was no apology whatsoever. This experience ruined our family trip. I’m at a loss on how this establishment is open and operating, and charging as much as they do. They certainly do not put any of that money into cleaning and maintaining their hotel.

    O'Brien Hotel needs a little touch up here and there, but it's to be expected of such an old building. The street access was great, though be warned of the $20 parking fee they charge just for existing in the general area, even as a patron.

    Dissappointing

    A bug gave birth on a nightstand, hundreds of babies. Wiring on lamp had exposed screw connectors. Soap dispensers, 2 of 3 in shower, not working. Staff was receptive to issues. Brought towels and washcloths??? We went and bought some soap. This is an okay hotel but definitely needs some TLC, not anywhere near the price we paid.

    Since the property is historic that is cool. Great location walking distance to the Riverwalk. But hotel could use some cleaning. Bathroom was not in good shape at all.

    River walk was a 5-10 minute walk. Tower of the Americas 5 minutes, Alamo very close. Small and quaint hotel. Balcony was fun to sit and visit and see the Tower of Americas
