When we checked in, the staff was very willing to give us directions to all the attractions we planned to visit. They gave us information regarding public transportation and tips on restaurants and "must dos". The room was very large and even though we were next to the interstate, suprisingly quiet. Covered parking was an extra plus! Breakfast was hot and plentiful.
Every staff member we encountered seemed truly tuned into meeting every need. We will stay here next time we go to San Antonio.

This is a beautiful property, and although the "walking distance" may be exaggerated, there is a very convenient free shuttle to the major attractions in the area, and it is also convenient to the reasonably priced trolley line. Our room needed some repair in the bathroom, which they offered to fix right away, but we passed because of the mess and inconvenience. Otherwise our stay was very satisfactory. Hotel personnel were very friendly and accommodating.

We were in San Antonio for a short getaway during the Labour Day weekend, and decided to stay at Comfort Suites after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. It was the right choice! The hotel is conveniently located a few blocks away from the RiverWalk and the Alamo, and we had no problems finding the hotel. We were also impressed with the hotel staff's service and breakfast selection. Although we arrived late in the evening, Michael at the reception was extremely pleasant and helpful with our check-in/ check-out procedures. It definitely made our stay in San Antonio an enjoyable one!

My husband and I stayed at his hotel during a quick trip up to San Antonio from Corpus Christi to pick up a friend from the airport. We both agreed that the bed was the most comfortable bed we'd ever encountered at any hotel. In addition, the staff was friendly and helpful. The pool area was relaxing and the complimentary breakfast was exactly what we needed! The hotel is close enough to walk to the Riverwalk. If we have cause to stay overnight in San Antonio again, the Comfort Suites Alamo/Riverwalk will be our first choice!

My mom, grandmother and I stayed at this hotel on a Sunday night. It was extremely quiet at the hotel and they didn't have their shuttle running to the Riverwalk, but what a gem! Michael at the front desk checked us in and gave directions and recommendations for dinner. He was helpful in printing our boarding passes for our flight the next day since the business center printer wasn't working. I work for a hotel management company in Minnesota and I am extremely picky because I see the inner workings of hotels every day and this hotel exceeded all of my expectations. It was very quiet even though it sits next to the freeway, I never heard any noise all night or the next morning. The breakfast was great from a nice clean area to the choices of food. I didn't mind that we had to drive downtown because my grandmother couldn't walk the 5 blocks to the Riverwalk, but if I stayed with other family it would have been an easy walk downtown. I cannot rave enough about this hotel and the service. I would recommend this hotel to anyone heading to San Antonio for business for leisure. Thanks for making the last night of our girls only trip wonderful!

It was roomy..Clean..Staff were friendly..Internet was down in rooms..I enjoyed my stay..I don't like the part that my card has been charged 4 times for a one night stay..We left the second day cause we wanted something a lot closer to the riverwalk so we didn't have to walk so far..Other than that it was a good night..We got there late..

The Comfort Suites has nice spacious rooms, a great breakfast and good customer service. The hotel is also elegantly decorated with Thomasville Furniture and a beautiful lobby. Also, a shuttle to the local attractions.
But, after the initial fee for the room they add on a $10 per day fee for parking, either underneath a highway or in their small (can only fit 6 or so cars) lot outside the hotel. . Also, if you plan on doing laundry--you should make sure you have lots of quarters--laundry is $2.50 to wash and $2.50 dry one load. Also, the hotel is not necessarily on the river walk, do not be fooled. It is next to the highway, about a 5 minute walk to the river walk. Also, although they do have a pool and a 5-hole putting green they too are "under the bridge" --- the bridge being an on ramp to the highway. So, while swimming and golfing, make sure you bring your air plugs. The pool is also very narrow, it almost looks like a lap pool. The pool can only fit about 10 adults.
The Comfort suites is a nice place to stay but just be aware of the small issues. We were able to have a wonderful stay despite the small issues. The breakfast buffet was wonderful- they had a wonderful breakfast room and the room was very well appointed. The hotel will give you a nice theme of San Antonio. Rates are higher if you book ahead, but you can get a deal if you book last minute.
