Quiet, no sleeping issues. Very friendly reception. Never any wait or hassle at reception, easy check in and out. Likewise fast and easy to get into internet.
Car park outside with enough space as you would expect from most hotels in the (Western) US.
Good breakfast featuring hot food not the same every day, nice variety.
Typical chain hotel which usual pros (reliable) and cons (boring predictable rooms) and usual quirky features (like having to turn on 6 lights in the room to illuminate it, with no main light). Mind you this is probably all true of 90% of hotels in the US.
I think I paid just over $100/night for this, which is about right.
Didn't see any dinner in the hotel, an Indian restaurant next door is the only eating place I think within less than 5 minutes walk. It's not at all like an Indian in the UK, a little more arty and different with a lot of vegetarian dishes. Although, for cost as well, I preferred the pizza place go out the front door of the hotel, turn left and walk 5 minutes until you see a sign with something like "Farmer's Market: Sprouts" and head towards that looking for the pizza place then on your left, decent large pizzas for $5-$10. With a car of course wide variety of restaurants available.
If you don't have a car this is about 10 minutes walk from the San Antonio Caltrain station.
