We found this "quaint hill country escape" with hiking trails and a spa retreat on groupon. Usually we have great luck with groupon finds. Not so much this time around... The hotel had obviously been recently renovated and the rooms were nice and clean and the staff was friendly. However, I would not recommend this hotel for a getaway. There is NOTHING to do in Castroville, although Fernando's does have really good food (with Wheel of Fortune on TV). The spa supposedly exists, but by the time we checked in at 4pm on a Wednesday, they only had one massage appointment available 2 days later, an hour before check out. Nail salon and facials were completely booked through the weekend. It is a short 20min drive in to San Antonio, which is how we spent our days. Next time, we will probably stay in San Antonio, with a groupon on the river walk (like last time) for the same price.
