First off, do not let the pictures fool you. Whereas the hotel might have looked like that one day, it does not look like that anymore! Where to start. We were greeted by a staff that couldn't be bothered to look at us until she finished cleaning the desk. Once she finished, instead of greeting, all she did was give... More

Checked in and headed out, came back and realize door was unlocked.Nothing was stolen,thank God.Sent a fixer upper to room in 10 min. Fixed the problem. Next morning same problem.The owner needs to fix many things if he expects people to pay these prices repeatedly.

Hotels in the Riverwalk area are pricey, but we were able to get this hotel for $97 per night during spring break (on Priceline). It is on the river, but not in the busy commercial area of the riverwalk. A trolley stopped right front and a river taxi stop (on the river) was about 1/10th of a mile from the... More

Stayed 3 nights for a mini family vacation. Was very impressed. Although not in the heart of the riverwalk I did enjoy this quieter location between the museum reach and mission reach as we were able to walk both. Trolly stops right outside and can buy an all day pass from the hotel for only $4 making it easy to... More

This is a great hotel with a great location. It is at the end of the Riverwalk. Its about a 10 minute walk from the busy part of the Riverwalk. The hotel was very clean & updated. I'd stay there again

I chose this hotel because it was considerably cheaper than the conference hotel where I was supposed to attend a professional convention. My experience was mixed. Pluses: 1. Rooms are large and comfortable. 2. Breakfast is excellent. 3. Staff are friendly. 4. Price is right. Minuses: 1. Location is not near most business or entertainment destinations in the city. It's...
