We arrived at 1pm not expecting to be able to check in but our room was ready. I am so glad they did as around 4pm, the hotel really got busy as there was a game on between Mexico and America that night at the stadium close to the hotel. The staff were very pleasant and helpful, and went out...

Lovely clean comfortable hotel within minutes from down town. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The rooms were large,clean, comfortable with comfortable beds. Loved having the pull out couch, fridge and microwave in the room. Other great amenities was the free shuttle that dropped you off in three areas of downtown San Antonio. It ran every half hour until...

This hotel is an excellent location very near the River Walk. We took full advantage of the great breakfast bar each morning, and the nearness to attractions. We had no trouble taking our car down to the River walk on a late Sunday afternoon to enjoy a stroll on the walk and a great meal. There are many parking lots...

The main concern we had was lack of sufficient parking spaces for the number of rooms. We had to park across the street in an un-lit parking lot not owned by Holiday Inn. Others had to park on street. The toilet 'roared' every time it was flushed which was sleep depriving~ and it rained most of the weekend and San...

This hotel was great! Conveniently located to the Spurs game we attended last night, as well as being shuttled over to see the Alamo beforehand. The staff was awesome! They were friendly and went above and beyond with helping to meet our needs, particularly David. Ask for him if you need help! The rooms were spectacular, especially for the cost!...

I needed to be near the Amtrak station and I arrived with a bad cold. Jane, the evening clerk was wonderful. I thought she was the best until I met the manager, Mahesh Fulani. He was incredibly kind and remembered to make sure I got taken care of by the hotel shuttle. The room was very clean, comfortable and safe....

We chose to stay at this location because of the reviews. Cost efficient, great location and shuttle service to the river walk. We decided to use the shuttle service to go to the River Walk. We had no problems getting there but getting picked up is another story. Bottom line nice hotel but drive or walk.

Not as pricey as the downtown San Antonio hotels but you do save. On the plus side, clean hotel, friendly staff, and pretty quiet (compared to the River walk, a busy airport is quiet). On the minus, a good trek to downtown and not lot of restaurants close by. So for families with children, you would need to drive. But...

This Holiday Inn Express is located just east of I-37 on the east side of downtown San Antonio. I gave the hotel four stars for a number of reasons, including the very friendly, helpful staff, clean comfortable room, full, tasty breakfast, and especially the shuttle service to downtown attractions. Although other reviewers have mentioned that is is within walking distance...
