Maverick Music Festival

We stay at this hotel a lot. It has tons of charm and you can't beat the location for the Maverick. We got a room upgrade and it was wonderful!

Very charming hotel, 2' walk from the Riverwalk

Posted Apr 1, 2015
Pros: charm, location, size of the room
Cons: maintenance could be a little better...
Location: 2' walk from the Riverwalk, where most of SA's life is...
Third year in a row that I choose the Fairmount Hotel for the same Petrochemical Conference attendance. They are generally very well priced, likely due to fact that they offer no breakfast / food services and have no gym and/or pool. But if you like a charming room in a charming building this is the perfect one... you can always get breakfast in one of the neighboring hotels which are walking distance... One thing to notice: wireless with quite weak signal, and often "falling off" - if you plan to work from your laptop, you may get frustrated with it... I mentioned it to the staff and hopefully they'll work this out soon...

Not as Expected

Posted Mar 1, 2015
Pros: Excellent location.
Windows cracked poor lighting broken chair sink drain plug stuck closed missing shower handle I expected more. Maybe a 3 star. This hotel has great potential but its not there yet. Owners need to invest more in this hotel.

Old and Older

Posted Feb 27, 2015
The staff was pleasant. Not very knowledgable about the surrounding area unfortunatly. It is a old hotel and with that comes some blemishes. My first room the heat didn't work and after the first night I discovered a leak coming from the celing. They moved me quickly to an adjacent room but this one was much smaller and the floor was severly sloped. When I laid in be I felt like I could roll out at any minute. Curtains were old and torn, cracks on the celing, the drain in the bathroom sink didn't work.... All in all I would not stay there again.

The Fairmount

Posted Feb 21, 2015
We loved staying here. The rooms are large with an old world feel, lovely antique furniture, wooden floors, tall windows, balconies, & a courtyard. The beds were very comfortable, and the bathtub was wonderful, large enough for a tall man that loves to soak after a long day. We love hotels with history, and The Fairmount has a unique story. The hotel staff was excellent, friendly & helpful. Willing to go the extra mile.
