Where is the hospitality? – We booked a message for my husband and later a ride to dinner in their car. When I called to confirm, they had both the car and message booked at the same time. I would not have booked it that way, and when I went to cancel Meegan blamed me. I am in the travel business in customer service and this place has none. The brandy advertised for evenings was in a dusty bottle in a location that was anything but inviting.
The atmosphere is COLD! The common area was not inviting at all.
Other guests asked me to suggest activies in the San Antonio area, As Meegan was out of ideas.
Southern Hospitality is Non-Existent – Oge Inn is very proud of its view and the prices reflect this, not service or comfort. We reserved months in advance for a special anniversary. The 14 day refund policy is iron-clad and will not budge for a sad, but true story of job loss 12 days in advance. In addition to deposit loss, they did not want to refund a gift certificate towards a postponement of the trip stating that it would only be applied towards a future two night stay. I am sure normal gift certificate purchases do not have to agree to minimum night stays. So, rather than lose $750 (for a two night stay), we decided to forge ahead. The spouse now needed to work that Sat due to the family's job loss. An arrival of 6-7pm (actual 5:30pm) required multiple negotiations to be greeted in person, rather than be left with the code for the front door and find ourselves to their premier suite. We weren't crashing on a friend's couch. Breakfast is only available 8:30- 9:30am on weekends with coffee at 8am or so. The Riverview suite is as pictured with a pleasant bathroom. The bed, however, is as historic as the house. I padded a comforter on my side to try to achieve a couple hours of sleep and my husband borrowed the chair pads to place on the floor to offer more cushioning and comfort than the bed allowed. At 7am, we got reservations at The Westin Riverwalk, since by this time I was hallucinating about their heavenly beds and forfeited our second night's stay at the Oge. The breakfast was measured and skimpy, extra not being offered. We had a friendly, plentiful, courteous breakfast at The Guenther House on our way to the Westin. We have stayed at bed and breakfasts that were half the cost of the Oge, with twice as much care and consideration for actually having repeat visits (George Blucher House in Corpus, Brazos B&B outside Brenham). The amount we spent at the Oge would have paid for the nicest suite at The Westin Riverwalk, do yourselves a favor and skip this meager offering.
A classic plantation house that recalls an earlier era. – The Scene
This Greek Revival-style home sits in the shade of a towering palm. It was built in 1857 by a Texas cattle rancher and converted into a B&B in 1991. The home's expansive gardens overlook a quiet section of the River Walk. From the white wicker chairs on the front porch, guests can enjoy the tranquility of the historic King William neighborhood.
The elegant dining room features individual tables where gourmet breakfast is served. A grand staircase leads up to guest rooms decorated in period antiques. Although steeped in the area's rich history, this B&B offers plenty of modern amenities. Bedrooms are furnished with premium cable TV and modern baths. Third-floor rooms offer access to the verandah or a private balcony.
