Overated cost for what you get
Check in was easy but I was not expecting to leave a full $50 deposit as well as credit card left on file. The room wasn't awful but for $300 I expected something more updated. Mattress was bad and the "jetted" tub was definitely in need of a cleaning. Didn't use it. Had to get extra pillows, only had 4 regular sized for a huge king bed. The tv was roku and had no access to streaming channels. Overall I wouldn't have stayed but it was non refundable. Won't stay again.

Nice Balcony view of Tower!
It was just a quick one night stay in San Antonio for us so i looked for something closer to the river. The balcony view of the Tower is what got me!!! Nice clean older place. Will look to see if they have rooms available next time we come back to San Antonio!!!

It’s wasn’t as good as I thought it would be, really old building and rooms were not like I thought they were gonna be. Bed was not comfortable and minimal sheets and pillows were old and worn out. Will not be staying there ever again

So quiet and peaceful
We had a lovely first floor room. The O'brien is so close to various sites and restaurants, it's the perfect San Antonio hotel. Our room was so incredibly quiet, we couldn't hear hallway noises or neighboring room noises. Great place to relax and get away. One note, bring your passwords for Amazon, HULU etc, the TV is ROKU friendly but you have to log in to your service to watch the channels. Pluto and Roku have free offerings.

8/10 Very Good

My husband and I had a little get away with some friends and this hotel looked so cozy in the pictures we saw. However we got there and the parking is ridiculous my Durango BEARLY fit you couldnt even turn a vehicle around you had to back all the way out in this narrow alley way looking area onto a 1 way street. The afternoon staff was so sweet and friendly however the night lady was rude and did not communicate with the customers and just seemed like she did not want to be there. We got up to the room it was nice and clean however when it was time to go to bed the comforter STUNK like if it had been washed with something that had grease so thats what it smelled like and it had no fluff to it at all.
