We loved the location. It was in the center of everything we needed to see and do. The staff was nice and bacon was great.... The breakfast buffet didn't change day to day but it was good. Our room wasn't cleaned the whole time we were there and the phone didnt work in our room, 708.

The beds were old and every time you wanna sit on it, it made so much noise with just 1 movement... room was dusty, lamps and restroom where the supposed clean towels go... but other that it was a friendly stay...

Great area for a quick trip. Checking in and out was quick and easy. Valet was fast and friendly. Everything was in walking distance. Wish there was room service for simple things likes like water and basic essential.

The property is located close to all that SA has to offer. The Alamo. Riverwalk, theaters, restaurant's and bars.

I got a room with 2 queen-sized bed. The first room that I was given had not been cleaned, one of the beds hasn't been made. Then I was given an alternate room, which has a shower room on one side of the entry door, and the rest of the bathroom completely separate on the other side of the door. In the shower room, there is no hanger or hook, or any kind of shelf or table to accommodate towels or a change of clothes. It's a completely empty closet with a shower stall. This is certainly unique in my entire experience with hotels, and not in a good way. Needless to say, this was my first and last time staying at a Gibbs hotel.

Excelent staff. Very nice room. Interesting decor, Not cookie sitter hotel taproom.

Beautiful old building. Great location.

The Hotel was in a very convenient location to all the places we wanted to visit.

Amazing friendly staff, professional service. We are repeat customers for that reason.

We absolutely loved this hotel! The staff was beyond outstanding! The only thing we did not like was the toilet paper! We will defend still there again if we travel to San Antonio.

Great location and convenient for close street parking you don’t have to pay for.

The property is located diagonally across from the Alamo and a block from the Riverwalk. Sarah was very friendly and sweet every time we encountered her. It is a beautiful property. The cost of parking/lack of in site parking should be disclosed by the hotel. You shouldn't have to rely on reviews to find that out. Other than that this is a beautiful and friendly place to stay.

Lovely historic hotel. Our room had a nice view of the Alamo. Staff were super accommodating.

The hotel was right next to attractions and river walk. Hotel staff was courteous kind and professional. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Would definitely book again. Was a little pricey however

Hotel Gibbs had a really cool, historic feel to it from the moment you walked in the front door. The room itself exceeded expectations. It was a great experience all around, we will be back.

Excellent hotel, very nice stay as usual. It was much busier than normal however the world is getting back to normal and people are coming out.

The history. It was a very nice hotel. Super comfortable.

Cool view of the Alamo and tower of America. Nice classic look in the hallways and extremely spacious room.
