“Very bad smell”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2007

We stayed at this hotel as everything else in San Antonio had been booked out due to conferences being held in the town. The internet site gave us the impression it was clean and well presented. Well...... we were exceptionally disappointed. The biggest problem being the extreme smell of cigarette smoke which had permeated everything in the room including the mattress, the sheets, the air....... We suffered through one night and on our arrival home the next day we needed to wash everything that was in our suitcases as well as air our luggage to try and remove the stale cigarette odour. Thankfully the beautiful city of San Antonio made up for this. Our group stayed in two rooms and both were equally disgusting.

Stayed February 2007

1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2006

Was not given room we reserved. My son had to sleep on the floor. Continental Breakfast was a joke. Banana and stale donuts. Will NEVER stay at this place again. Very small and very run down.

Contrary to their website, this motel does not have a pool!! It looked as if there was at one time, but I assure you, it is not there anymore. Also, it sits in a bad neiborhood. There are run-down buildings and homes next to it. Very ugly and uncomfortable.

  • Liked — The rooms were recently renovated.
  • Disliked — 110 degrees outside and no pool.
  • Tips/Secrets — Avoid this like the plague.
  • Stayed July 2006, traveled with friends
