4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

I got exactly what I wanted -- a safe, clean, affordable place to spend one night on the way to someplace else. The staff was pleasant and efficient, the room was decently sized and clean, the bed (while not the most comfortable) was acceptable, the pillows were a bit squishy for my taste, the AC worked well (but seemed unnecessarily loud), a big TV, plenty of hot water in a decent and clean bath with lotion and shampoo amenities offered -- all for less than $50.00 per night. Score! The motel was a bit difficult to find as it is OFF the "main drag" and there is not a lot of signage ... but once located it is easily accessible to that "main drag". The parking lot was well lighted and the neighborhood was really more residential than commercial.
Sure -- this motel is not the most up-to-date -- but it is clean and safe ... and about $100.00 cheaper than New Braunfels Super 8. And, finally, it was on the highway AROUND San Antonio so I did not have to deal with all that traffic!
