“Nice hotel, but it's not on the Riverwalk.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

We assumed with the name comfort Suites Riverwalk, that the hotel was on the riverwalk. It was not. It was walkable, but one of our friends had a broken foot, so we had to take a taxi. It was only $6 each way, but we wanting walk out the door and be on the riverwalk. The room itself was very nice and fairly large. The staff was friendly and helpful. The view...not so hot. We looked at I-35. I will say, that Even though we were a block away from the interstate, there was no traffic noise in the room. Very well insulated.

Stayed April 2013, traveled with friends

I Recently Took A Trip From Michigan To Corpus Christi That Entailed Staying At 5 Different Hotels.This Hotel Had The Best Staff, Cleanest Rooms, Best Breakfast, And It Was Located In A Place That You Are Not Paying The "Premium Price" Of The Other Hotels Closer To The Riverwalk. It Was Only Three Blocks Away From All The Attractions By The Alamo. My Kids Loved The Pool And My Wife And I Loved The Hot Tub! Thank You For Making Our Time That We Spent At The Hotel Very Comfortable.

Four of us (one adult and three older teens) stayed the first week in April. I don't think you can beat it for the price. Staff was very friendly, room was decent, and it was within walking distance to all of the attractions. We didn't have any problem with the parking, nor the walk to or from the Riverwalk (even returning at night around 10pm). Our room faced the freeway and there was no real noise issue. Would stay here again and recommend to others. I didn't get a chance to eat the breakfast, but the kids said it was good.

We stayed in San Antonio for our vacation. My husband, my 2 sons and I really had ha great time. The hotel staff were very helpful. The breakfast was great, they even had waffles in the shape of the state of Texas. Everything was clean and well maintained. The hotel was in walking distance of all the area attractions. We would definitely stay agin if ever back in the area.

The bed and pillows were great!!

The parking lot is under the freeway and the hotel is a stones throw from the raised interstate. Very noisy, I will add. While staying at this hotel, we walked to the river walk which is a very long walk. They offer a shuttle, I recommend taking it. Anyhow, while staying at this hotel we were approached by a homeless person asking for money, they were either drunk or on drugs and couldn't open their eyes and were falling all over themselves. Scared my children, and myself. After reading the good reviews on trip advisor i feel misinformed. Im considering not using trip advisor anymore after this unsafe experience. Anyhow, This happened while walking out of the parking lot. Then my husband was approached by a man trying to sell him drivers license and social security cards in the parking lot. The floors of our hotel room were quite filthy, would actually make our feet black. San Antonio is a lovely town with many wonderful hotels that are actually on the river walk, as they say. Next time we will stay at one of those.

This Comfort Suites was top notch! From Georgia Rios the hostess, Jessie (maintance & shuttle driver) to Cory at the front desk...they were all wonderful. The room was clean and very comfortable, the maids did a great job each day. We used the pool and the hot tub and they both were clean and just the right temp. The sitting area around the pool is great for winding down at the end of the day. The wine, beer and cheese spread Tuesday-Thursday night is awesome! Everyone at this hotel goes out of there way to make sure that your every need is taken care of. Please don't hesitate to stay here and if anyone has questions I would be happy to answer them if I can.

First of all we loved the room!!! very clean and spacious. very comfortable beds and loved that there was a fridge and microwave and sitting area in every room! great for families with kids!! the pool and hot tub was very clean and very nice! really nice workout room even though we were on vacation and only used it once! ha! although the hotel is not directly on the river walk we walked there many times its a very easy and beautiful walk to downtown, very close to a ton of nice restaurants and the mall. the putting green by the pool was really cool and they even provide putters and golf balls. the hotel was nicely located, was easy to get to six flags, air force base, malls, movies,etc.
I would like to mention a few names in reference to customer service... we based our decision to stay at this hotel from conversation with megan while we were at home trying to decide which out of the many hotels in the area we wanted to choose. sometimes if it is your first time to a city this can be very nerve racking, maybe scared you are going to drive cross country and the hotel isnt what it seemed like by pictures, etc.. she was very patient the 5 times we called before we hit the "confirm" button, very thorough with info, we felt she was very honest about the city of san antonio and the accommodations of the hotel and was very sweet and didnt make me feel like i was asking to many questions. my husband approached cory on 3rd shift about an issue and he went over and above to help us with this issue and was also very kind and very professional and all about customer service gave us great ideas of places to go and great directions on how to get there, and he also was kind enough to slip us a nice personal message to thank us for staying with them, LOVED that!! melissa was a very professional manager and showed true leadership with the operations of the hotel. i also want to say the housekeepers were awesome very polite and respectful to our belongings, we didnt worry a bit leaving cherished items in our room when we werent there, the breakfast supervisor georgia was outstanding. the food was great and they have texas shaped waffles! very cool ;) based on the people we met and the quality of the hotel and customer service we will most definitely be back to stay each time we go to visit our daughter in the Air Force, one other thing that was really awesome was that for our daughters boot camp graduation, even though she wasnt staying there with us, they had a wonderful cake made just to show they appreciate her service, very touching. Tara and Mike, Sevierville, TN

Room Tip: all rooms are suites with sitting area. the whole hotel was always quiet (very sound proof)
