Normally, when my wife and I go to San Antonio two or three times a year, we stay with relatives. But due to circumstances, we decided to stay at a motel on our last trip and, not only visit with relatives, but go out to eat and site-see downtown before going home. Since the Motel 6 - Ft. Sam Houston,... More

Newly remodeled Motel 6 which sits next to numerous fast food restaurants. Check in was a little slow but I contribute that to the clerks being very "Texas" friendly and wanting to talk. Check out was quick. Room I had was very quiet(3rd floor) and this location does have elevators to make the trip up/down easier on your joints. Only... More

I checked into this Motel6 because i usually have great experiences with them. Friendly staff, safe locations, clean. The orange rooms are ugly, but I can easily get over that. The location here is unfortunately not the best and not the worst. Since I was traveling alone with my daughter, I would have felt safer at a different location. It... More

Very nice motel, and the staff was very helpful and professional. The rooms are all renovated and up to date, for the price u can't find any place better. They have good security on property in the evening and he is always visible.

We stayed at this hotel because we are relocating to San Antonio and arrived very late at night. The manager, who is very rude, even refused to let me throw my trash on the property; he said he was going to charge me. We needed to extend our stay, Long story short, he told us he wasn't going to rent... More

I leave reviews for everything now, and I call them as I see them. I was in a pinch and needed a room, and pretty much everything I normally stay at was booked solid or way overpriced (in the hundreds of dollars). I have stayed at motel 6 before, so I pretty much knew what to expect in most cases.... More

Room cost about $125 for 3 days. The pictures of the room and hotel are exactly what you get. The room was updated with modern deco and was very clean. Even had a flat screen TV. For the price I was expecting the place to be run down, its not top quality but it was better than what I expected... More

The place was less than $50 for two of us. It was a perfectly functional room. Two beds, table with two chairs, a shower, towels, a toilet, a tv. It was a no-frills room, but I was just there to sleep, and we managed to do that quite well. The room was very clean and modern looking. The pool looked... More
