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...

Clean but small room with no refrigerator or microwave. Wi-Fi trouble during our stay. Charged for parking whether you parked in their lot or somewhere else. No complimentary breakfast ($9.95). Turned shower dial all the way over to Hot and water was only Warm.

We stayed here very last minute on a recent trip to San Antonio. Although it is considered "riverwalk" area the actually action is a little bit of a walk away. The rooms were clean enough but the bathroom was TINY. My husband and I couldn't be in the bathroom at the same time while getting ready. The tub in our... More

We booked this hotel through Priceline or I would not have chosen it. The reviews are so mixed I was a little worried about what we would find once we checked in. We were pleasntly surprised. We found the hotel to be good and the room clean. The front desk people were very friendly and helpful on several occasions. Our... More

This hotel was fantastic. The rooms were comfortable and the location to the river walk was excellent. The front desk staff were very helpful to our group and also had no issues facilitating what we needed above a hotel. My biggest problem was the constant harassment from security. Every time I would walk in or out I was approached by... More

I was prepared for this hotel to be awful because of the reviews. Yes, it is old and yes parts of it are very old. But it was clean and #1 while in San Antonio was excellent air conditioning. I would stay here again just because I know that I can cool the room down very well. The beds are... More

A cool lobby with animals couldn't prepare me for my "standard" room and miniscule bathroom. The room was clean enough, but with all the wasted living space, I questioned the choice of only allowing one person in the bathroom at a time. The staff was nice and informative, for the wife and I were there for a wedding that came... More

Where do I begin. Went on a day trip and ended up staying the night and wound up here. Greatest value vs. the rest on the Riverwalk. First off the receptionists at the front desk just rocked awesome personality and pointed us to closest restaurant which was good by the way. The hotel have me a Miami feel in my... More

I was unhappy with this hotel as soon as we got to our room-I went into the bathroom to find that not only had it not been cleaned but that there was urine all over the toilet seat and floor. I promptly exited the room to go complain and found a maid in the hallway so I told her and... More

We booked two rooms through military ITT as it said it was on the Riverwalk. It was just a peaceful tranquil 15 minute walk along the riverbank to the hotspots. Or you could catch a trolley across the street. The rooms were small but very comfortable. The staff the most friendly people that actually make you want to return just... More
