If your looking for big fancy hotel type amenities this isn't for you but if your looking for a clean comfortable oasis at a very affordable price this is it. The motel is definitely old and looks it but its not run down and the indoor parking was included in the price of the room. Room had fridge, microwave and... More

affordable for San Antonio - but wow - 20$/ night to park without prior notification on website or even before charging credit card. Heavy curry odor. Hallway hot and sticky. AC good in room. Seemed clean in the room. No security, doors from outside to main hot hallway open all night in a questionable part of town.

Quoted one price then charged another. Asked for non smoking room and called to confirm that I was in a non smoking room, but still given a smoking room. Also charged a second time for no reason. I learned this hotel charges by the hour also. Don't go there. Sleeping in a car or on the side walk would be... More

Do NOT stay here if you value your vacations. The rooms were dirty with cockroaches everywhere. The rooms were cramped and soiled. Had to ask for my money back even though they didn't want to give my refund. After about 1/2 an hour of arguing I did get my money back.

I don't know why this place has so many bad reviews but our experience there was great! The man at the check-in desk was super friendly and helpful. Our room was nice, we had a king bed, tv, microwave, and refrigerator. I saw a review online that said they didn't have many channels and that their wifi didn't work but... More

This place doesn't seem to get good reviews but it was close enough to walk to the Riverwalk & the Alamodome. Has a fridge & microwave. It can be a bit noisy, will cost you $10 to park in their lot, the fridge wasn't plugged in so we lost almost a complete fajita dinner we were saving, and it's not... More

Make sure that you will not be cancelling your stay for any reason. The 48 hour cancellation policy is a lie. I tried to cancel my reservation well before the 48 hours and they still charged for a room, when asked about it they became defensive and acted as if I was the one who not count the hours!
