My husband, son and I took a trip down to San Antonio to visit Six Flags, Sea World and the River Walk, and we originally were going to stay at La Quinta. Well when we arrived at La Quinta we were told that they did not have any available rooms until 3 in the afternoon and we had gotten there some where around 5 in the morning. So we decided to look for another hotel. Well the Drury Inn was fairly close to La Quinta so we decided to try our luck and see if we could get a room there.
My first impression of the hotel was that it was clean and well decorated. We were greeted right away by a very nice man at the front desk, and to our surprise he said that they did have rooms available for us. So we checked in which took less than 10 minutes and we asked him how close Six Flags and Sea World where to the hotel, and he kindly showed us a map and gave us directions to the places we wanted to go. After giving us our room key, he also gave my husband and I two drink cards that allowed us to get free alcoholic beverages during our stay (which we did not use). He then suggested that we come down to the eating area and eat breakfast which was free. Sadly I don't remember the name of the man that helped us check in (I think his name was Jose, but I'm not too sure about that) but he was extremely nice and helpful.
Our room was nice and clean, and had a up to date plasma TV, and sitting area with a computer chair. It also had another chair close to the window where you could sit and relax. The bathroom was very clean as well. The hotel is a "green" hotel, so the toilet has two buttons to flush, one was for urine and the other for your more heavier waste. The only complaint I can think of about the bathroom was the shower's water pressure. It was very weak and it took a while to get the shampoo out of my hair with such low water pressure, but then again they are trying to be conserve water, so I can appreciate that. The beds were a bit stiff, but they were nicely made, and I still got a great nights sleep. The TV had basic cable, but it was okay because we we still found something to watch. Plus the hotel offers free WiFi and we had our laptop so we were able to get on the internet and watch some YouTube. The WiFi was pretty fast, it didn't lag or anything so that was a plus.
We later went down for breakfast and lucky for us there was not that many people when we went down there. The breakfast was nice. They had a pretty good variety of things for you to choose from, eggs, sausage, gravy, biscuits, waffles, grits, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, juice and coffee that type of thing. Our son is pretty picky with food, and even he was satisfied with the selection of food that they had. As side from breakfast they even offer food at around 5 or 5:30, which consisted of hot dogs, nachos, chicken tenders, nothing really big, but it filled us up enough to where we didn't feel the need to go and buy anything from outside. They also have free popcorn and soda from 3:00-10:00 which is great for those times that you want to stay in and watch a movie.
The hotel has a indoor pool and a gym that is over looking the pool. We went sometime during the afternoon and there was no one there but us, so it was a nice relaxing time.
The cleaning staff did a great job of making sure that our room was clean and that we had clean towels everyday. The hotel staff in general was nice and very helping. I did not run into not one rude person that worked there for my entire stay.
Over all The Drury Inn is a great hotel that is very close to six flags and Sea World. The hotel is nice and clean and the people are nice. And for those reasons we plan on staying there again for our next trip to San Antonio next year.
