“Great location, HUGE room!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

We were very happy with this hotel, even though it is an older hotel it is in a great location within walking distance to the river walk, the Alamo and any thing else you want to entertain you. There also is a bus/trolley stop right outside the hotel. The rooms are gigantic for the price and include a fridge and microwave! Nice beautiful updated bathroom and great flat screen tv with lots of dresser/storage space if you need it. Our room even had a sleeper sofa and recliner!! The grounds and interior of hotel are very clean and the staff was very friendly.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

I appreciate all La Quinta hotels for their rooms, service, and free breakfast. This one also had a trolley stop right in front of the hotel! Fare was $1.20 each way ($4 for a daily pass), and the trolley drivers were extremely helpful regarding restaurants, attractions, and stops. Hotel staff members were very helpful as well. I do wish they could sell the $4 pass as we would have to go to a less convenient spot for that. We did not expect to have a living area as well as the two beds, so that was a treat. Again, I appreciate the staff. Although it was too cold to swim and the pool was closed, it was extremely clean. There are no restaurants near the hotel, so plan to eat elsewhere, preferably the Riverwalk.

Nice well informed staff gave us info on trolley hours and route for site seeing which is better than paying for parking. The breakfast was not up to La Quinta standards it had eggs but were boiled and had no bacon/sausage/ biscuits. The location and staff are great when something was not working they fixed it immediately. The room was large and clean. Hotel has on site laundry room/business center. I would stay there again considering the staff did what they could to make it a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: bring your own snack than pay hotel prices

No doubt this centrally located LQ gets hard use in a convention and tourism epicenter like SA. The first time we stayed here it was impressive for its fantastic price and overall good condition. Last stay, it was looking a little worse for the wear. Still a great bargain and a super location for those who like to go downtown but also be near King William and South Town/hipster areas, but I would hesitate to rec it any longer to anyone who's fussy about appearances.
