Internet not working x2 during my weeklong business stay and no one able to help. Changed rooms due to broken AC / room like a sauna. Sat in lobby for almost an hour to stay cool until AC could be checked and they asked me to bring the old keys back down to desk after I moved ... Really?! I... More

After a long drive, we arrived at the hotel around 11:30am, knowing that we may not get my room, but thought I would check. To my surprise, they had a room open and my coworker and I were able to check in early! The hotel is located in a "fair" location. Close enough to where our conference was without taking... More

Really enjoyed staying at this hotel! Great location, free parking, free breakfast... What more could you ask for? They even have a complimentary shuttle that leaves every half hour and it will take you to the river walk or market square & pick you up. The first driver, LouAnn was very sweet & friendly & knew her way around the... More

The hotel is close to riverwalk area and downtown (~1-1.5 mile). But the temperature in July is extremely high so we had to drive from the hotel to a public parking near the riverwalk. Thus. the hotel is not close enough. The stay was convenient but the breakfast was not, especially for vegetarians.

Good hotel- a 5-10 minute walk to the river walk area. But prices are better than most, breakfast was very good and it was a clean. Obviously remolded recently but not a destination hotel. Pool too small to list as an amenity in our opinion. Would use again.

The hotel was close to downtown and the River walk..The staff went out of its way to make you happy. The young lady at night was a A+ in helping us find places to eat. The rooms are old and needs a make over but it was clean tho.

Can't say enough good things about our stay here! We stayed for 3 days. I will review as many aspects of the hotel and our experience as I can: I'm going to start by saying we stayed in May and the hotel was busy but did not seem to be fully booked and high season had not started yet.

I can't believe the level of service that I received at this property. From the front desk people to the maintenance man. Everyone was real and personable. I felt like everyone appreciated my business. While the hotel is a bit out of my usual comfort zone for location it made up for it with the customer service. Room was very... More

We spent a week at this hotel and were very happy about our stay. It's only about a mile away from the Alamo in downtown San Antonio, so the location is great. We had our own car, but opted to take the complementary shuttle for most of our trips downtown. Everyone at the hotel was very friendly and helpful, they... More
