Here's an excerpt from one of our reviews: "This was the first time to stay at the Inn on the Riverwalk, have to say was the best vacation we have had. The room was beautiful with a patio overlooking the river, great place for coffee in the morning. The staff was excellent, helpful in every way making diner reservations for us and giving geat advise on where to eat. It was also enjoyable to have a hot breakfest made by the chef every morning. Perfect location on the riverwalk walking distance from any where you would want to go. While there we got a chance to see Johanna perform a beautiful wedding ceremony on the river. We will be back in march for a family friends wedding, know it will be amazing, cant wait!"

  • Johanna Helping MDA.org

    Yesterday, Johanna, owner of The Inn on the Riverwalk was hauled away and put in jail for having a big heart! The event was hosted by Boudros restuarant on the Riverwalk. Johanna successfully was able to raise her bail of $2000, so she got out ok, but everyone at the Inn and the MDA staff had a good time helping raising money to help Jerry's Kids.





    Together, The Inn on the Riverwalk and lots of friends, helped MDA provide vital services such as:

    MDA Summer Camp - A magical week of fun and independence
    Outpatient Clinics - Families see the top specialists for their disease
    Equipment Assistance – Help obtaining and repairing vital medical equipment
    Support Groups - Families and the people MDA serves sharing and caring together

  • more riverwalk weddings

    If you haven't already seen our wedding blog - go to weddings and choose 'wedding blog'. We host at least a wedding a weekend at The Inn - and sometimes more than a few!

    The Inn on the Riverwalk is located on a cuddle-sac and allows us to offer intimate ceremonies and wedding receptions right on the Riverwalk, downtown San Antonio.  

    Have you watched our wedding video online?

    The majority of our ceremonies take place on the steps leading to the river, the lime stone wall with two half lime-stone columns on each side and the beautiful vegetation are a beautiful accent to the perfect wedding site.  See our gorgeous wedding photos in our online gallery:

    Many brides/grooms chose to decorate the railing with greenery and ribbons.  The Main Room seats 35 guests comfortably and with our extending patio, overlooking the riverwalk, another 30, seating 65 guests total.  We've also accommodated as many as 100 guests, but with limited seating and buffet style reception food.  It worked out wonderfully (see our reviews on weddingwire.com).

    Our Wedding packages are completely custom and can be altered to meet your specific budget. We specialize in being a one-stop shop, eliminating all your worries as we can have the minister, flowers, cake, photographer, music, decorations, food and drinks all ready for your arrival.

    Have you read our blog yet? Lots of great stories and photos:

    We’d love to have you visit us so we can showcase our beautifully romantic venue on the river.  Excited and can't wait for the email response? Please feel free to call us at 210.225.6333 to set up an appointment with one of our in-house wedding planners.

    Our number one goal is to help you experience the wedding of your dreams.

  • Traveling Photographers from my home town in England

    Anna from brightonAnna is from Brighton - from the same area of England that I was born and raised! I got to practice my British accent again . . .it was delightful having her and her family here to stay for a few days.

    Both her and her hubby are traveling photographers for travel guides!! . . .she says they go everywhere to take pictures for AA and other travel guide books. They are on their way to Mexico from their home base, now in Scotland. Her hubby doesn't like traveling by plane - so they got to America by ship, and then traveled to San Antonio via a train and will continue their journey all the way through Mexico in the next 7 weeks. Wow - what an interesting and exciting occupation - and best of all - they get to take little Eva with them . . .she's gorgeous!
