“Clean motel and friendly check in by Raj”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Stayed during Labor day 2012.
We had two rooms 213 and 214 we stayed for one night, My first impression looks like la Quinta.
I was wrong, I had really easy check- in and once in my rooms I noticed tidy, clean room, the rooms have a good seize bathrooms and decorations are up to date. Beds are very comfortable and the sheets look new. Overall a good experience and would stay here again much better than la Quinta. The breakfast is ok, ready to get you started.

I was a little concerned about this location because I booked on Hotwire. It looked dated in the photos and had read some negative reviews. All in all, our experience was good. We only stayed one night and didn't have the breakfast. We always have our own with us. Our room was clean and we were given a non-smoking room as requested, even though Hotwire can't guarantee it. Staff was friendly.

Chose this motel due to its' location close to Lackland, and the Ramada name. I gave it two stars only due to the fact that the staff was wonderful!!! Our room's air conditioner had been leaking and didn't realize until the second day that half of the carpet was soaked and the room was musty smelling. We didn't report this right away, due to the fact that my husband didn't want to change rooms, and thought surely the housekeeping would report it. The rest of the carpet was vaccuumed, however, filthy, you couldnt walk on it at all without shoes or the bottoms of your feet would be black. Definitely does not live up to the Ramada name and price. Much nicer motels in same location, won't visit a Ramada again. OH, and it is located right across the street from the fire department and police department, good luck sleeping through the night!

I stayed here when I had to attend my husbands Lackland basic training graduation. It was a good location overall, really easy access to the main roads and has Wendy's, Denny's and a couple other restaurants within walking distance. I actually ended up in a handicapped room due to availability but it was in no way a problem. I had several of my in-laws book here as well without encountering any problems. I felt safe while here even being a young woman alone and I thought that the room was well kept and clean. They give plenty of towels and toiletries that I didn't need to use much of anything I brought. The continental breakfast was good and simple with even some prepackaged food if you are on the go. My only problem was that from my room I could see the Wendys drive-through window which in itself was not a problem but I could also hear people ordering. Thankfully, however the AC made it barely noticeable.

We stayed here for Lackland Graduation. We arrived before check in time and to my surprise they had our room ready. It was very nice 2 queen size beds, fridge,microwave, hair dryer,coffee pot. A nice table and chairs to sit at for work or eating. The beds were very comfortable,3 queen size pillows and a small deco one,made for a great nights sleep. The air conditioner was great, it was so hot! The bathroom was clean,had a great shower massage shower head,perfect after a day at Lackland AFB. They have a continental breakfast, cereal, bagels, Danish,muffins fruit, coffee, tea,juice,yogurt and the best waffles. You make them yourself, they are shaped like the state of Texas! The staff was great! Every time I needed something they were there to help. I needed scissors boom scissors, I needed an envelope I got one, needed help with the Internet, I got it, maps yes! San Antonio freeways are a nightmare! They are not user friendly to those who have never been to San Antonio. So the staff was very helpful getting us where we wanted to go. They also have a pool looked very nice but do to a very busy weekend never got to go for a swim.

Room Tip: Rooms facing La Quinta are very quiet. They are on the backside of the hotel. Also use gps to get ar...

We stayed for 3 nights and it appears the cleaning staff does not do a good job of cleaning. When we returned from our outing the mirros were still dirty, the coffee pot
had dust which indicates nothing was dusted. There was a small roach on the shower curtain and the sink was leaking water from underneath which caused a foul smell because carpet was getting wet. I believe the cleaning staff just goes in and vacuums and changes bed covers if needed and provides new towels other than that they don't wipe stuff down. My son walked around in his white socks after showering and they were filthy, only shows how dirty carpet is. They need to hire more cleaning staff or make sure the cleaning staff is doing their job because it is gross. Just imagine the germs on the phone, tv remote, door knobs, etc. that is why it is important that everything gets wiped. We also noticed some sort of stain on the wall in the restroom.
