Walking back to our room the first night, the hallways were lined with trash, dirty linens, and room service plates from that AM. Second night, slightly better. Not what you expect at this price point.

We had a fantastic family vacation! It seems like many of the issues described from the spring are being corrected. We stayed 4 nights and there were plenty of valets available, but we opted for self parking and always found a spot. The golf cart shuttle was running most of the time, but we also figured out you can enter the conference center at the bottom of the hill and take the escalators up to the lobby which was quick and easy. We were able to check in and get a room around 2pm with no issue on a Friday afternoon. Daily housekeeping was still unavailable but we saw housekeeper training while there so it looks like they are working to rectify that. We did have to ask for extra toilet paper but it came within 10 minutes. All common areas were clean and they had landscaping crews hard at work on the gardens. River Bluff was popular but not overcrowded and seemed to be appropriately staffed to include cocktail servers. My daughter loved the daily activities and nightly s’mores with many other kids. I golfed both courses at the TPC and was pleased with the service and hospitality. I do agree with others that $250 a round is a little steep for the experience. The only food option we used was Starbucks which was fine. I did notice waits for the other restaurants pretty much all hours they were open. There were plenty of great local restaurants within a 15 minute drive that we enjoyed. We’ll definitely return at some point for another getaway.

Stayed four nights and were very disappointed. We've been to other JW Marriott locations and understand tradeoffs due to the current pandemic (no stay over service, for instance). But this hotel seemed to be at full capacity with a fraction of the usual staff trying to keep up - and not succeeding. This became painfully clear as things started going downhill quickly. As we walked into the hotel, my wife immediately commented that the place did not seem very clean. The large mat at the entry doorway was very soiled, as was the floor further inside - not good signs. While checking in, I asked about the possibility of a room upgrade, having been a Platinum member and current lifetime Gold member. The front desk representative promptly informed us that no upgrades remained since most folks who stay at the hotel are Platinum or higher and I was just at Gold status. I'm ok with no upgrade availability, but thanks for making my family and I feel undervalued with that comment... On to the room itself. The carpet was noticeably dusty and the room was very stuffy and seemed as if it had been turned over quickly. There were no tissues in the tissue box, which we found tossed under sink. Some toiletry items were missing and there was no sign of the small complimentary pack of cleaning wipes we've been accustumed to during this pandemic. There were a couple of hairs here and there and a few obvious stains on the bathroom door frame - again, strikingly below standards we've seen at other lower tier Marriott hotels, let alone at other JW Marriotts. We had asked for a roll away bed for our daughter - which we found left out in the hallway, and without any sheets. To housekeepings' credit, they were prompt in bringing sheets up once we called to ask for them. During our four night stay, we asked for towels only once. This turned out to be an unpleasant experience a couple days in. We noticed that room service staff was cleaning a nearby room. My wife went and asked if she could have five towels. The room service person promptly proceeded to roll her eyes, sigh loudly, and exclaim "5 towels!?!?!!! " - to which my wife felt obligated to say that four would do if that was ok. If anything, this certainly seemed indicative of an understaffed, overworked, and overwhelmed group of folks. In addition to hoping for a very comfortable stay, the main attractions for us coming into this hotel were the lazy river pool, overall facility amenities, and the grounds. The lazy river could definitely have been cleaner but all things considered (lack of sufficient staff and overcrowded), it was passable. The grounds were, understandably, not in the best of shape, having been damaged by the storm this past winter. We never ate at the restaurants given the limited food selection and disproportionately high pricing – in other words, adding up to an exceedingly poor value…. as was the entire facility experience overall, and our stay. We will not be back to this hotel.

We have stayed at the JW Marriott in San Antonio four or five times now. We recently had our worst experience, and unfortunately, we can no longer recommend the property. I suggest you get an Airbnb and go to Schlitterbahn or maybe try out the Hill Country Hyatt. As a Titanium Elite member and soon-to-be Lifetime Platinum Elite member is pains me to say this. The hotel is charging pre-pandemic prices for subpar mediocre service. The hotel needs to reduce its occupancy rate, set expectations with guests and charge lower rates. We didn't experience any "Unparalleled luxury," as their website claims. I've stayed at Courtyard Marriotts with better service. If you do stay at the property, be prepared for: - Long check-in times, we waited 30 minutes to check-in and 3 hours for our room. - No housekeeping service; it is DIY cleaning. The website says there is a "commitment to cleanliness," just not in your room. - Delays in getting fresh towels; we had to call back hours after our original request. - Slow valet service. We canceled, got a refund, and switched to the self-park after taking me 35 minutes to get my vehicle the first time we used it. - Long waits for food/beverage service at the pool; some staff suggested we order food ourselves at the RiverTop Grill for faster service. - A fitness center without fresh towels - Bars and restaurants not operating in in pre-pandemic hours - Frustrated staff (it isn't their fault management is overselling the property) - Watch out for the golf carts; on two different occasions, staff members almost ran into my children or me. If you are going to attend, I recommend the following: - Use the Bonvoy app to communicate with the hotel staff; this will make things so much easier. Thoughts and prayers if you have an issue that requires you to go to the front desk for assistance at a busy time. - Bring your kitchen-sized trash bags; the tiny trash cans in the rooms will fill up quickly. - Bring your own shampoo/conditioner/body wash - Bring a cooler with your food and eat from it as much as possible; this will significantly reduce how much you spend. - Bring snacks to the pool; this will also save money. The staff at the entrance to the pool said small amounts of food were acceptable. - Use UberEats (or preferred app) to have food delivered to the property and meet the drivers upfront before the valet area. Lots of families were getting pizzas and eating in the reception area. - If you do valet, don't try and pick up or drop off your car at a busy time (e.g., check-in/checkout). If you don't valet, be prepared for a long walk, but still faster than valet. - If you have a ton of luggage, get your luggage cart the night before, you won't be able to get one in the morning near checkout times. We did have positive experiences at the 18 Oaks restaurant, the Kids Club, the water park in general, and with the nightly s'mores. Bottom line, stay away, this property isn't worth the current $ rates or the category 6 points rate.

Beth R wrote a review Jul 12
My husband had a conference so we spent three nights here and were aware of bad reviews before we arrived. Waited maybe 15 minutes for check in - they did try to direct us to a Queen room until we pointed out that was not what we reserved - and bell hop was present. We declined valet and parked close by. The room was clean and noted that housekeeping spent at least 45 minutes for each turnover room. Those that arrived expecting daily service did not do their homework. And you should put your empty cans and bottles in the recycling cans by the elevators. Cold breakfast buffet was included for platinum elite as the executive lounge was closed and it was good with fruit, sweeets, boiled eggs and smoked salmon. The spa was closed the days I was there. Most of the employees were working their butts off - but management supervision was lacking. Our balcony overlooked the front entrance and the valets were constantly running to cars in 90 degree heat and with masks on. The pool staff was friendly and prompt. I saved my seat at the adult pool with a towel by 9am. The Mexican martinis were good and the lazy river could use an afternoon cleaning. Some of the landscape, as in much of the area, was affected by the February freeze. So the real issue: Breakfasts were good but there was a 30 minute wait with many empty tables - probably because with the system in place it took 20 minutes to bus a table - never seen anything like it. Apparently the trays cannot come into the kitchen until they are completely full. I watched (and took pictures) as an outside table was cleared by pushing over glasses and tossing all napkins in a pile on a chair to clear space for the huge tray. Then ten minutes spent trying to get everything stacked on the tray. Then the big shoulder lift and things go tumbling. Broken glass lies on the ground for another ten minutes until everything is cleared, cleaned and ready for next customers. So where are the managers at breakfast, at the fancy steak house (the steak was good), in the halls where used glasses lingered for days or at the lobby?? I don’t think that I ever saw one and that is the crux of the problem here. Perhaps they don’t want to abide by the rules that all employees wear masks. No guests wore masks and I suppose that the managers did not want to have to wear theirs either. Perhaps Marriott should take note of all the negative reviews and look into why management is a no show here. We are platinum elite and have stayed at about a dozen Marriott properties since pandemic started.
