Very dirty and nasty. Will never stay there again. Bugs everywhere did not want to touch anything. My bathroom got flooded because of the people on the 2nd floor. The people at the desk were not very nice. This place needs to be shut down!

I've stayed in some cheap hotels in my life, but this place was pretty bad! I would have changed hotels, but I had driven over 600 miles and was exhausted. Plus they allow pets. I had called ahead to request a ground floor room, but when I arrived they had put me upstairs. I asked to switch and was put... More

Stayed with the family (3 children) during the july 4th weekend. Was pleasantly surprised with the condition of the hotel. We booked the room with 2 beds for $60 for each night and it was worth it considering the rate in the nearby hotels was $70-$80. The hotel was clean for the most part. Only little wear and tear to...

Bugs (hundreds of cockroaches in one room, a variety of bugs in the other) kept us from eating in room. Breakfast was advertised on flyer in room from 7-10; actually times were 6:30-9:30 and not available at all at 7:25 on Sunday or Monday when we tried to get in. No 24 hour coffee as advertised as office was locked... More

We stayed here during our stay in San Antonio for the kick off of Fiesta. We looked for someplace to sleep, since we would be out and about most of the time. This place had the right price and the amenities we needed. I was actually impressed when we got to our room; it was better than I expected. The... More
