I was working at Ft. Sam Houston (about 13 miles away near the Walters St. Gate). However, I decided to stay here - because my flight out was at 6am - and I just wanted to stay in one hotel all week. This location worked out fine. Yes...I ran into some traffic on the way BACK to the hotel at night (it would take about 30 minutes...heading back to hotel at 430pm)...but in the morning - I made it to work in about 15 minutes (leaving hotel at 615am). I stayed for 7 nights. Everything about my stay was fine. I agree with some of the other positive comments (front desk very helpful/friendly). I was even impressed that staff walking around/in the hotel was friendly and said hello (sometimes at other hotels those staff just walk by).
I liked the area...just make sure you know to turn near the Chevron gas station (if you are heading North on Hwy-281 from the airport/downtown)...the hotel is a short block BACK from the Hwy281 service road...and it was dark when I got there.
Lots of good restaurants in the area. I went to the Magnolia Pancake Haus (about 1.5 miles away I think)...and it was a very tasty breakfast. There's a Target and some other shopping nearby. Also...if you ask at the front desk...they can help you find San Pedro Ave...and it was a quick drive to North Star Mall (and I really liked Luciano Ristoranti Italiano inside the mall).
The guest room was always clean (great maid service everyday). The refrig in room was nice...and lots of channels on the TV. I know this is going to sound "petty"...but the only complaint I had (but didn't tell anyone at the hotel)...was that on day 6 of 7 at the hotel - the maid took (removed) the bar of soap I brought from home and the shampoo I brought from home (it was just a small bottle)...but not sure why that would happen....but it was the last night so I just used the hotel stuff the last morning! Anyways...I would stay here again - because: great location, GREAT PRICE, easy parking, friendly staff, comfortable room, good water pressure, pretty lobby!
