The Crystal River Inn
Excited to announce that we are under new ownership!

ATTN: The hotel is no longer a bed & breakfast. We are within easy walking distance of many great local eateries that we hope you will take advantage of as you explore downtown San Marcos. We are always happy to recommend our favorites, and can't wait to welcome you!

Crystal River Inn
A classic hotel in downtown San Marcos, Tx

At Crystal River Inn we understand that every guest is unique, and that's why we go above and beyond to curate your stay according to your preferences. From the moment you step into our lobby, you'll be greeted by a warm and inviting atmosphere designed to make you feel right at home.

Whether you're a connoisseur of fine food and beverage, an adventure seeker, or someone looking to unwind and relax, our team is dedicated to tailoring your stay to meet your individual preferences. From customized room amenities to personalized activity recommendations, we aim to make your time with us truly exceptional. During your stay, be sure to wander the town square only two blocks from our boutique hotel. We have a list of the hidden gems, local attractions, and the best spots to indulge in the culture and charm of our community.

And finally: We’re all about impeccable “invisible” service for our guests, which includes luxury amenities and personalized perks befitting a five-star boutique hotel — plus the added bonus of absolute privacy. During a Crystal River Inn stay, the space belongs entirely to the guests, with our staff on call 24 hours a day, ready to serve.
We also offer:

  • Daily turn service in guest rooms upon request
  • Customized itineraries and other special services upon request
  • Access to parking behind both our Crystal River Inn houses (first-come, first-serve basis)
