Stayed here the week of August 9th. Very clean, well maintained, wonderful staff, and way better than average breakfast selections. No downtown parking headaches as their shuttle will drop you off and pick you up pretty much all day (I believe the hours were 9:00 am til 9:30 pm). The only downside to this property is the location, as it... More

My family and I stayed here for two great days. The hotel is very clean and the staff is very nice and accommodating. This location is just blocks from the downtown and with a free shuttle to the downtown area was a great choice for us. The only downside to this hotel was the lack of parking and the pool... More

My Sister & myself stayed here for our "Church Convention". We were so pleased with the location, because we needed to be close to the Convention Center & Alamodome for our services & different sessions. Just to let you know, you can definitely walk to the Alamodome, if ever needing to stay there for an event. However, the Convention Center... More

I would try this hotel again. The place fresh and clean. It is 15 minute walk to the river walk and a complimentary shuttle is available. There was a very large convention nearby and not many options were available. The hotel room was comfortable and everything worked. The hotel was filled with convention goers and all the staff and facilities... More

I was in San Antonio for a class at the Culinary Institute of America. I was looking for a reasonable hotel and this definitely fit the bill. Beautiful hotel, just away from the hustle of the Riverwalk/downtown area. When I arrived I was greeted by very friendly desk staff. She was extremely helpful and was full of suggestions for restaurants... More

The rooms were very comfy and the breakfast was quite nice. This is an interesting place because it's on the "wrong side of the tracks". It is within walking distance of the Riverwalk if you're reasonably fit. It's not a dangerous area to be walking through (I hope) but it's clearly in the stages of new blood and new renovation....

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.
