“Going Green”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2010

This hotel is green and great! The lights automatically go out when you leave the room, solor panels and water collecting gutters. In the lobby is a touch screen panel that tells all about the hotel and how it has gone green. Really is innovative and interesting. Great all around service. This place is a great stay!

Not aware of the city I was hesitant where to stay. This hotel was about 15mins from Lackland AFB and offered a free shuttle back and forth. On top of it all it was in a safe neighborhood and a great value when you mention that you are here due to Lackland BMT events. I loved that the rooms were spacious and it was a green hotel, promoting environmental awareness. The wireless internet was always available and there was a restaurant on sight for convenience. Even though it was further away then some other hotels I would choose this one again. The only thing they could work on is the shuttle service to Lackland. Afternoon pickups tended to me tardy and the driver is quite the talker.

Check in was quick & easy, no wait. Plenty of bell carts. Lobby is beautiful plenty of couches to lounge in.
However my room (king bdrm) not so impressive. Decor is boring. TV kinda small, free internet access though. So this is a "eco-green" hotel...well they seem to have spent a good amount on the rain collection system. You insert your key into a slot at the front of the door to turn on the power.
There is a smoking balcony on the floor, the builders left splats of concrete all over the place.
The 151 runs right in front, noise is noticeable but not irritating. The room walls are very thin! I can hear the folks next to mine pretty clearly.
Other than that, Im not impressed, stayed at nicer Holiday Inn's. Got the rate on hotwire, prolly would of been more upset if I'd of paid full price.

I took my young daughter on a girls' trip to Sea World for a weekend in September and we booked this hotel at a very discounted rate through one of those websites where you can't see exactly what it is until you book it (I doubt I'm allowed to say the name). Anyway, this hotel was perfect for us! There is a wonderful kids pool outside next to the full-size pool, complete with little fountains. My three year old loved it! The hotel is very new and clean. The staff is very friendly. It was surprisingly quiet -- maybe because it was the off-season. It was ridiculously close to Sea World and there are plenty of restaurants and stores nearby. My only complaint is that there was no complimentary breakfast of any sort, and kids don't eat free when you book with a very discounted rate -- not a huge deal, though.

Okay, I am just going to put this in list form:
Pros:
1. Close to Sea World
2. Large Lobby
3. Business Center w/ Computer Access
4. Somewhat friendly cleaning staff
Cons:
1. Not enough parking! Had to park in a field in front of the property and tote our children to hotel after our Sea World adventure. Not fun in the least!
2. Think that they skimped on the insulation between the rooms to make a 'green' hotel. I could hear the family next to us talking in normal voices at 6 a.m. And I mean every single word.
3. Our water-saving toilet...ran the entire time!
4. They also skimped about 6 inches on the shower curtain! It wouldn't close and you just sat there in the shower and tried to get it to close while showering-very stressful!
5. Comforter was COMPLETELY stained and we didn't notice it until the next morning. The cleaning staff was very nice in changing it for us though.
6. I understand paying for the food you are delivering for room service, but there is a room service delivery charge as well? AND an 18% automatic gratuity? Not sure if this is standard now, but I was very surprised by this.

This is a very new hotel, close to SeaWorld and not far from Lackland AFB. We stayed here over a weekend for my stepson's graduation from Basic Training. It was convenient (once you figure out the access roads in Texas) and also fairly close to a Starbucks (couple miles away), a Target, etc. The rooms was nicely decorated, bathrooms were beautiful. It was also interesting to learn about the water usage and the many steps to become LEED certified. No - breakfast wasn't free but it was a good full hot breakfast (the waffles were tasty) and yes, there were lots of families but it's the SEAWORLD hotel. We enjoyed the pool, the restaurant and the hotel - it was great for what we needed which was a nice, clean safe place to spend time with family and hang out.

Beutiful, clean, best staff, great food at the restaurant, fair prices. Kids had free meals every night and they love it.
Shuttle to Seaworl is very convenient, nothing to carry we just put on our swimming suits and ride to the park!
