Crystal River Inn
A classic boutique hotel in the heart of San Marcos, Tx
Nestled in the center of San Marcos, at the gateway to the magical Texas Hill Country, lies the historic Crystal River Inn. Just 5 blocks from the crystal-clear San Marcos River, we are the town’s only boutique hotel and moreover, the oldest inn in Texas continually operated by the same family. We’ve been here since 1984, offering simple elegance and lots of Hill Country fun. You’ll have your choice of 9 designer rooms in 2 historic buildings, each with unique features such as fireplaces, canopied beds, and luxurious tubs. Your overnight stay will include a great seated, plated breakfast with favorites like bananas foster crepes, quiche with hollandaise, or eggs benedict. Then, we invite you to relax, be lazy, and do nothing....or, enjoy an uproarious murder mystery, a beautiful garden wedding, an unparalleled outlet and downtown shopping, or a fun local festival. The sparkling nearby river is waiting to show you the best in all kinds of year-round water sports. No matter what you’re in the mood for, our Texas-friendly family team is here to send you home with wonderful memories.
