I only booked this hotel because I was running out of options and the city was filling up with tourists and spring breakers. My biggest mistake was not realizing that every room is a smoking room. There were burn marks in the nasty carpet and blanket on the bed. Walls are VERY thin and the floors creak. Breakfast was a...

2 stars because on the outside, you wouldn't think it's that terrible. Check in was pleasant. Walk in to room: the room reeked of cigarette smoke, the bathroom light was flickering like a strobe light but not as badly, the bed blanket had cigarette burn holes, and the bed sheet had hairs on it and just felt unclean. I made...

Horrible experience, from the get go but we had no choice, we had been driving around and everything was full, it was after midnight, first thing we noticed was people outside rooms drinking and having a good time,. At the check in window there was a sign saying that no guests were allowed outside rooms after 10pm, I asked the...

Went down to San Antonio for a weekend getaway, did I pick a bad weekend (August 1st), they had a convention there. Every hotel I called near the Riverwalk was booked. Every location was overcharging for the weekend. I called in to my Choice Privileges Rewards Program and this is the location they referred me to. I am a elite...

This place was horrible. The pictures are not close to what this hotel is. The bed was a king size box spring with a smaller mattress. Everything was extremely out dated on the inside. Oh the outside was fine, inside dirty, smelly and a dump. Never stay here again. Continental Breakfast? If you want to call stale several day old...

I've stayed in many hotels and motels over the years, and this is in the bottom two. I stayed here for four nights while visiting my husband who is stationed at Fort Sam. Pros: the woman who checked me in was initially very friendly, and the bed was comfortable. Unfortunately, that's about it. The room was noisy (it's off of...

Where should I start?! When I walked into my NON SMOKING room the first thing I noticed was the heavy stench of old tobacco. The first thing I saw; multiple cigarette burns on the floral comforter. Not only did the comforter have obvious cigarette burns, the sheets had NOT been changed! The pillow coverings still had old mascara marks, tears,...
