Cheap prices, not a very good place to stay. Shady area, they had no smoking rooms, all of the available plugs didn't work had to unplug the refrigerator because the top plug was the only one that worked, had to charge one thing at a time. Wouldn't stay there again even for the price.

Thank Tammy J

I was not sure what I'd find by staying at a motel on the Northeast side of San Antonio and at first glance I was rather worried about my choice. Never could I have been so wrong. New paint, sinks/faucets, carpet with new microwave & frige, room was nice size and clean. Exactly what you want when you travel. The... More

I just stayed at this motel last weekend and have to say that its the worse motel I've ever stayed in. The first night I got there late and the sheets stunk and looked to be stained. The dresser drawers did not open, the tv stand was not straight. There was no phone books. The toilet and bath tub were... More

The place was very easy to find, right off the freeway. Complaints of shady area are somewhat unfounded. Little to no parking lot to speak of. Main office has a lobby as large as a bathroom stall, extremely small with no A/C. The single staff member I saw was nice. Most of the rooms were in the back with about... More

My wife and I just returned home from the graduation of our granddaughter in San Antonio. We stayed at the American Motel through recommendation from others at Trip Advisor. They were right! Although not much to look at (and no pool, grass, limited landscaping etc.) this place is well taken care of by by friendly on-site owners who know the... More

Room was small and clean but came with few extras. Staff was courteous and friendly. Beware of the handyman made bed frames in the rooms with 2 queen beds. I banged my shin terribly when walking to the bathroom during the night.
