This is an average motel located close to San Antonio but not in a great neighborhood. It's about a mile east of the Amtrak Station, not a good area to walk at night. I spent two nights there (solo) and would probably stay again, but not with my family. This is not a reflection of the motel, just the area.... More

I chose this motel over a "known" hotel because the reviews were higher. This motel was in a bad area of town and was worse once we got to our room. Our rooms smelled like after shave and cigarettes. We had a King size Non Smoking Room. There was a napkin wrapped around the cable wire where it was plugged... More

The hotel is good for the price or a quick stay, the owners are really nice and even offer shuttle service. Location is pretty good with just a short bus ride to the main attractions. Clean room and friendly staff was exactly what we were looking for during our weekend stay. Great hotel if you want to save $ and... More

We picked this just because of the price and convenience to downtown tourist attractions. Drove up and it was not the nicest area of town. However, gated and secure. The room was large, very clean, and nicely kept. The review saying 2 star not more wanted luxury at low price. This was very nice. Better reviews for cleanliness than the... More

We stayed at this motel during our spring break visit to San Antonio for a week. What impressed me most is how friendly and helpful the owners of the motel are. The property is about 1.5 miles from downtown (not walkable), but they have a free shuttle that drops you off at Danny's from which you can walk to all... More

Only stay to save money. Don't stay if you want decent towels, decent sheets, decent breakfast, Kleenex in the room, safe electric, or a nice location. There is free wifi and the room was large with a MW and frig.

I wasn't sure just what we had chosen as we drove up to the motel, but I was pleasantly surprised from the very friendly and helpful management staff to the pleasantness of our room. We had preferred to spend our dollars else where than on our sleeping accommodations but I feel we got as good a value with this motel... More

The staff here are awesome. We got in a little late so there wasn't any parking close to the room. They actually moved their cars so we could park near the door! The room is huge, clean and very nice. I definitely recommend staying here.

Just left the Alamo motel two days ago. First let me say that you can never please some people no matter what . I for one was very happy staying at the Alamo. Yes the exterior isn't the greatest, but when you get into the room and see how clean it is you forget about the outside.The breakfast nook is... More
