I stayed here for about 1month and can't complain. Breakfast is simple but free. Good Location, close to everything. I enjoyed my living room being separate from my bedroom. I definitely recommend this hotel.

When I booked I did check some bad reviews, but went ahead and still booked. Hoping things would be different and improvements made. I was disappointed. First off it is fair distance to the riverwalk and the walk is not convenient! The hotel lobby did not reflect that it was part of a big chain. Lots of improvements needed here... More

Hotel is near downtown San Antonio; many attraction sites near by. Front desk staff, Larry is very friendly and helpful. Room is big , roomy, and cold; and wheelchair is accessible into bathroom. Breakfast is fantastic, egg scramble has low sodium. Overall, I have great experience with the service.
