We stayed here for two nights while in San Antonio in a suite that was comped to us by a family friend. The hotel is not on the Riverwalk but about a ten minute walk away. They do offer a free shuttle to and from the Riverwalk area on the hour and half hour until 10:30 pm. The property is... More

Nice small hotel,staff very friendly. Pool only big enough for one, sorry but not recommended for family, but if alone on trip for business , its ok. Breakfast was buffet but not very good! Plus it located in not so good area of town.

This hotel was close to everything and quiet. Parking was free and food was fair. The room layout was strange and bathroom was small. A/c worked very well there were two tv's in two rooms but only one remote??? The carpet was old and had a lot of stains throughout the building. They have down comforter and I'm allergic so... More

Hotel was in walking distance of the Alamodome which was another benefit for us. The room was nice with a comfortable bed and other extras. The cinnamon rolls for breakfast was the best I ever had along with other great selection to choose from. The staff at the front desk was the best also. Over all a great stay.

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 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.
