I was not sure what I'd find by staying at a motel on the Northeast side of San Antonio and at first glance I was rather worried about my choice. Never could I have been so wrong. New paint, sinks/faucets, carpet with new microwave & frige, room was nice size and clean. Exactly what you want when you travel. The... More

The dresser drawers did not open, the tv stand was not straight. There was no phone books. The toilet and bath tub were... More

Room was small and clean but came with few extras. Staff was courteous and friendly. Beware of the handyman made bed frames in the rooms with 2 queen beds. I banged my shin terribly when walking to the bathroom during the night.
