“Poor attitude on the part of the office help”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

The free parking was for the occupants only. When some friends came by to spend a couple of hours with us, their car was towed! Granted, they had told us that anyone other than the occupants would have to pay $10, but we assumed they would just add it to our bill. They were not at all clear on the procedure and it cost our friends $160 to get the car and were pretty belligerent about the whole thing. To add insult to injury, the parking lot was empty except for our cars and one or 2 others.

This hotel is bargain basement, no frills, but it was clean and well kept despite its age. But most importantly, it was walking distance to the Valero Dome. We went there to see the Alamo Bowl, and it was an easy to walk to the riverwalk, the game, and back again. The parking was free with the room and they had a fenced and well lighted parking lot. A good value if your main goal is to see the game and are not planning to use the room for anything but sleep. We felt safe there.

Room Tip: The hotel is split on two sides of a main street. we stayed on the side with the fenced parking lot...

We stayed here for one night and I can honestly say it was the worst experience I have had anywhere in the world! My husband, two small children and myself were staying here with another family and were so sorely disappointed with the experience. It was nothing short of unsanitary, filthy and smelly! We had to ask for a change of sheets, which we had to almost beg for. Even with the new sheets, the linens were dirty and we found hair and soil all over the beds and blankets. Clearly hadn't been changed between customers. I had to first scrub the bathroom and bathtub before safely bathing my little ones. Really disgusting. The front staff was rude and not at all helpful. The rooms were noisy and most of the other guests were partying well into the night, and we could unfortunately hear it all. This stay ruined my San Antonio vacation and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

I usually don't write reviews for chain hotels / motels, but this calls for one. There is not a lot to say about the hotel itself - it's a standard Days Inn room, with a standard breakfast so if you've ever been to a Days Inn you know what you'll get. What makes this place mentionable is the walking distance to the Alamo and the Riverwalk - because here you'll get it for a motel price. It's not right at the Riverwalk, but very close by and reachable by a short walk of about five to ten minutes (which at least for European standards isn't far).

The only downside at our stay was, that the Internet didn't work - which is OK seeing that the room was about half the price of one at the bigger hotels directly at the Riverwalk. If you're looking for an affordable place in San Antonio this is where you want to be.

Room Tip: We stayed in the separate building across the street, the main building seemed to be the better choi...

Nothing to rave about but really nothing to complain about. We stayed here our last night in San Antonio and pretty much just needed somewhere to sleep for a couple of hours after going out on the Riverwalk and then catching our plane at 5 AM. Hotel is not fancy but comfortable. Location is great.

This hotel has some bad reviews but we found it to be a great price considering where it is located, minutes walk from the Alamo. The room was clean and spacious and had everything we needed.

Really bad parking lot in the second part of the hotel, across the street from the office. Space is very tight and has a sharp corner near the exit. Sharp metal posts near the curb to keep you from running over their curb but they are too low to the ground to be seen, if you are too close to them. Major damage to my car.

Rooms were very small, drab and dated. Towels were very thin and only 3 per room. Awful. Also, $10 per car per night parking.
