“Cory the Night Clerk was awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Call out to Cory the night clerk. He was very very helpful regarding some discrepancies in rates and took care of them for us, no questions asked. He is very friendly and he offered ideas and suggestions about where to go and what to see. The day clerks didn't compare in friendliness.

I would recommend the hotel just because of him.

The hotel was nice; we enjoyed the complimentary cocktail hour....nice touch.

Room Tip: 5th floor has really high ceilings, not as closed in feeling.

I love visiting San Antonio and I highly recommend if you go there that you ONLY stay at the Comfort Suites Alamo/Riverwalk. Not only is the hotel decor absolutely beautiful, but the staff is super friendly and helpful with information about local attractions. The rooms are clean, quiet, and cozy and the breakfast is delicious. My favorite is the Texas shaped waffles!! The big advantage is that this hotel is smaller than some of the "big chain" hotels so the personal attention and warm welcome you get from the staff makes a HUGE difference and the fact it is literally blocks from the Riverwalk makes it the perfect place to stay. The parking lot is safe and secure and you will feel right at home. I cannot wait to go back on my next visit.

Our family of four ( two nine year kids) stayed here for five days. The hotel was perfect! We stayed in a queen room that was big! We had two queen beds and a pullout couch, microwave, and a mini fridge. A mini fridge and microwave is perfect for snacks and leftovers! We never ate out for breakfast because the hotel had a perfect continental breakfast. The pool and hot tub made the kids happy we when came back to the room mid day to do laundry,etc. Our room was clean and the beds were comfy. The young gentleman at the front desk was extremely helpful. This hotel is a short walk from the Riverwalk. We enjoyed the short walk each day. The price was just right too!!.

Booked a last minute trip during a Spring Break weekend with less than a day's notice and didn't expect to find the #4 rated hotel in San Antonio available. Turned out to be a great short stay at a good price.

I can see why they're rated so high...very nice room, fairly close to the Alamo, etc., but the people were the difference. Everything that they did demonstrated focus on the extra step for their customers. We had no worries and they ensured that we had everything that we needed, especially info.

Will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Be sure to tell them that you're traveling as a family...it seemed to get us a better rate.

Comfort Suites is the perfect distance from the downtown sites - close enough to walk to everything but far enough away to have easy parking and some peace & quiet. My husband and I decided to stay here for the great price, pool/jacuzzi, free breakfast, and easy parking. We walked to the Alamo and the Riverwalk (5 minutes or less) and enjoyed coming back to relax in the waterfall jacuzzi. The breakfast is great - eggs, cereal, waffles, coffee all day...and the staff was very efficient and kind. Will definitely stay here again when we go back to San Antonio.

Room Tip: We sprung for a room on the top floor - pretty good view of downtown.

We were EXTREMELY PLEASED with our stay. Our only disappointment was that the name gave the impression that it was on the River Walk near The Alamo, but it was a bit of a walk. Turns out the walk was WONDERFUL & it didn't kill us! The hotel van offered us a ride but we said we'd walk! Even after that we chose to walk the next day too! San Antonio is one of the MOST BEAUTIFUL cities at night. The breakfast was very good & very filling. Our two 9 yr old granddaughters had a BLAST! The pool & hot tub were PERFECT! We would definitely stay again!
