What a great place to stay. Myself, my sister, my 5 year old nephew and a friend stayed here for my brothers graduation from the Air Force at Lackland AFB. The AFB was about a 20 minute ride, which had we stayed at a hotel on base my brother could had visited us on his base pass (just for future grads families). But this place was a real treat if you are staying to visit the Riverwalk. I would recommend driving the short distance to the Riverwalk and parking closer. That is only because of all the walking we did while we were on base. The Alamo is only about a mile from the hotel if you are the adventure type with more energy than we had. Sea World is only about 15 minutes drive.
The hotel was very clean and wonderfully decorated. It is a historical site, being a former county jail in the early 1900's. The people at the desk were very nice. On our late arrival at 12am the lady at the desk heard us say we were hungry and put together a little goodie bag of some fruit, cookies and water.
Not much parking at the hotel, but for $8 a day they have a bigger parking lot just around the corner with a quick shortcut to walk back to the hotel.
Our room had a microwave, coffee maker and a fridge. The beds were oh so comfy and were very clean. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was great.. muffins, waffles, toast, cereal, eggs, sausage or bacon, biscuits and gravy. Along with various juices, coffee, tea and milk. Served at 6am during week and 7am on weekends.
No traffic noise, nor any noise for those that are light sleepers.
This was a 10 out of all the hotels I have stayed.
