Positive Reviews

Walking distance from the Alamo and more.

El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel is located within walking distance of many of downtown San Antonio's famed attractions. The Alamo, Tower of the Americas, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, and San Antonio River Walk are all located within one mile of the hotel.

Pleasant pool area recommended.

A number of guests recommend the hotel's pool and sun deck, the latter of which features sung loungers, fire pits, and a seasonal Tiki bar. Guests report that the whole setting makes it easy to relax.

Pet-friendly property.

Guests planning on traveling with their furry friend are welcome to stay at the hotel, a detail that proves popular with a number of guests. A non-refundable deposit is required though.

Negative Reviews

River Walk location not central enough for some.

While El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel is situated on San Antonio River Walk, the hotel's location proves a little too far out of the way for some. The hotel is located in the Museum Reach area, which is about 30 minutes further down the River Walk from the main restaurant area.

Some cleanliness issues reported.

A number of guests experience issues with cleanliness during their stay. According to reports, guestrooms are not always thoroughly cleaned between guests, while stained linens, furniture, and carpets are routinely recounted.

Room size seems to vary.

While some guests find their rooms to be spacious enough, others report that rooms can be compact and uncomfortable. Guests needing room to spread out may wish to keep this in mind.
