“Very good for a short stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Nice smelling lobby and nice smelling rooms. Everything was clean, the staff was very accommodating. What I liked the most was the shower. It seems you can't get a decent flow anywhere these days, including your apartment, but not in this case! Almost like a massage shower.

They also have a small pool (adequate for kids) and a usual continental breakfast in the morning.

All in all - what else would you wish for a little family R&R on a tight budget?

It was ok considering we just needed a place to sleep for the night, but not worth the money. Front desk lady seemed annoyed that I was bothering her by checking in. Room had a musky odor. I was disappointed to see the powdered eggs and mystery meat sausage for breakfast. Otherwise, they had a decent variety of fresh fruit, waffles, cereals, etc. They lady that prepared the breakfast was very polite. Water pressure in the shower was surprisingly great. Mattresses are very hard. Didn't appear to be in a good location although it was still quiet on a Friday night.

Excellent find! Our hotel we had reservations at originally called and canceled our room after we were on our way!! Found this room in Internet and so glad we did!! Easy off and on to interstate with gas station right across street! Room was excellent!! Breakfast looked really good but we decided to get on the road instead if eat. We vacation every year at Port Aransas and this will definitely be the place we stay at every year!!!

We stayed here because our experience in Houston had been so good. This property had a hot breakfast, orange and apple juices, waffles, eggs and sausage, oatmeal with skim and whole milks so we ate breakfast here more. The room was large and very comfortable. The HVAC was temperature controlled which is a big plus for us. We were in #110 and our car sat right outside. Of the places we visited in the area it was easy to get back to Division Ave as it drops south off I-10 to I-35 then off quickly. Very nice stay.

Everyone was great from the time we checked in to the time we checked out. The room was very clean. We had clean towels when we returned in the evening and the beds we made as well. Breakfast was delicious and the lady preparing it was very friendly. We will retutn again.

We went San Antonio about a month ago. I like their friendly staff, and free hot breakfast. The motel is close to downtown and the price was reasonable. Rooms were clean with digital flat screen tv, and high speed wi-fi service. We stayed there for few days and the housekeeping staff did a great job. We will definitely go back. Keep up the good work guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We came for Thanksgiving to visit family and tour the city. I must say for an Econo Lodge, this hotel exceeded our expectations! A full hot breakfast with eggs and waffles, and HD tv in the rooms! We could stock up on food and drinks in the room since there was a microwave and fridge in the room as well. Rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff was super friendly. Just a 5 minute drive to all of the downtown attractions, which was super convenient!!
