My husband, 13 year old son, and I stayed here for two nights. We all thought the guy at the front desk was great. He worked every day we were there and always remembered us and talked to us.The rooms are very comfortable, and we all loved the beds and pillows. We liked that there was free parking and plenty...

Staff very helpful. Quiet location. Free parking. Walking distance to Riverwalk area and convention center. Great hot breakfast. Rooms very clean. Would definitely stay here again. Only criticism is the smallness of the bathroom. Bathroom door misses toilet seat by fraction of an inch.

We arrived at 1pm not expecting to be able to check in but our room was ready. I am so glad they did as around 4pm, the hotel really got busy as there was a game on between Mexico and America that night at the stadium close to the hotel. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, and went out... More

Lovely clean comfortable hotel within minutes from down town. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The rooms were large,clean, comfortable with comfortable beds. Loved having the pull out couch, fridge and microwave in the room. Other great amenities was the free shuttle that dropped you off in three areas of downtown San Antonio. It ran every half hour until... More

This hotel is an excellent location very near the River Walk. We took full advantage of the great breakfast bar each morning, and the nearness to attractions. We had no trouble taking our car down to the River walk on a late Sunday afternoon to enjoy a stroll on the walk and a great meal. There are many parking lots... More

The main concern we had was lack of sufficient parking spaces for the number of rooms. We had to park across the street in an un-lit parking lot not owned by Holiday Inn. Others had to park on street. The toilet 'roared' every time it was flushed which was sleep depriving~ and it rained most of the weekend and San... More

This hotel was great! Conveniently located to the Spurs game we attended last night, as well as being shuttled over to see the Alamo beforehand. The staff was awesome! They were friendly and went above and beyond with helping to meet our needs, particularly David. Ask for him if you need help! The rooms were spectacular, especially for the cost!... More

I needed to be near the Amtrak station and I arrived with a bad cold. Jane, the evening clerk was wonderful. I thought she was the best until I met the manager, Mahesh Fulani. He was incredibly kind and remembered to make sure I got taken care of by the hotel shuttle. The room was very clean, comfortable and safe.... More

We chose to stay at this location because of the reviews. Cost efficient, great location and shuttle service to the river walk. We decided to use the shuttle service to go to the River Walk. We had no problems getting there but getting picked up is another story. Bottom line nice hotel but drive or walk.
