Stayed in a river view room for a few days in Dec 2011 whilst attending the San Antoni Breast Cancer conference. Room was ok for a short business stay and had good wifi. Hotel is on the Riverwalk - but not in the main part. There is a path along the river so you can walk to that part, took... More

For a downtown San Antonio hotel, this place definitely has good value. Breakfast and Internet included for a low price. The rooms don't scream current and modern, but so what. The lobby and atmosphere have a lot of personality, and the staff was VERY nice. All in all, I enjoyed my stay.

Stay got off to a rocky start with a problem with our reservaiton, but the hotel made everything right. Access to Riverwalk is across the street - 1.3 miles from "busy" downtown, beautiful walk to Museum Reach area or downtown. The hotel was incredibly clean, the staff was eager to please in any way, and most convenient to trolley or... More

Parking is $18 per night not a good deal. No frills but ok of u can get a good deal. I feel they could have tried to scrub the tiles in the bathroom more and bought a shower curtain long enough for the rod. The staff was nice.

I was a bit disappointed in this hotel. It was listed as a 3 star, but did not feel like a 3 star at all. The hotel staff were really nice, which is why I'm rating the property a 3 instead of a 2. The hotel was very outdated and smelled - the carpet was old, basically everything was just... More

This hotel is an older hotel with upgrades. We stayed with our boys (ages 6 & 7). It was a very pleasant stay. The kids liked the birds in the lobby. The rooms were small, but comfortable. The beds were comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is a little bit further from the action of the riverwalk (especially... More

I stayed 3 nights here for business in San Antonio. Great proximity to the riverwalk and downtown locations. Large, clean rooms with ample sun coming in large windows. The front desk staff, restaurant, and everyone else were very friendly. I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting San Antonio!

Went to the hotel to be with my husband who was working out of town. Carly and Brandon at the front desk were very helpful. Having two babies with me they made sure I had help getting everything to my room. The staff is great and the hotel was clean. A great hotel to say the least.

My stay at the hotel was for a conference onsite. I would say that the staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. Upon check at 4pm, my room was not ready and I had to wait sitting in the lobby for about 40 minutes. They offered to phone me when it was ready- no call was ever received. I finally had... More
