Stayed for one night during spring break in San Antonio. Best Price, close to the Alamo and River walk. The room was clean and very nice for the price. I would stay again!!!

Dirty, run down rooms. Desperately in need of basic repairs, general upkeep, and a DEEP cleaning. Would have stayed somewhere else but reservation was not able to be cancelled. (should have been a red flag)

Located just north of the AT&T Center, and minutes from downtown. Very convenient for my trip to San Antonio! BIG kudos to their customer service folks. I left an item in the hotel, and they held my item for me until I could arrange for FedEx to pick it up. I didn't wake up in time for the hot breakfast,... More

Stayed here for work and the front desk lady was extremely rude and sarcastic. The halls smelled like wet dog. The door lock was broken. Refrigerator smelled and wasn't cleaned or plugged in. Microwave was dirty. TV was nice, breakfast was average. The area was a shady part of town not much around. The beds were comfortable. Just needs some... More

I booked this sad, smelly room through Hotwire, as a $140 dollar room, knocked down to $70. I've had previous positive experiences with Hotwire so I thought I would, again, be getting a great deal. In a word- no, the room and overall hotel is shabby, but definately not chic. The non- smoking room smelled like an old bar (smoke,... More

The bed slept good and the set up of the room was great for the price, however there were black bugs all over the sink and in the coffee maker. Also there was a bad odor in the room.

This motel is a little aged but in good condition. The staff was friendly and the rooms were okay. Don't expect a 5 star motel but it is a very good value for the price. I would stay here again.

The front desk people were awesome. They helped with directions, transportation and just general advice. The hotel exit can be a little problematic. You have to get off a ways before the hotel or go down a do a loop because it is on a one way street. The bus stop is right there at the hotel. This is nice... More
