Check in on 8/12/2009 for a three night stay overlooking the Riverwalk for the purpose of sightseeing the Riverwalk and surrounding area. Our room was the size of a very small hospital room which was located 150 steps (150 yds) from the nearest elevator on the 3rd floor. Since my wife had had hip replacement surgery it was necessary for me to use a wheel chair from the motel to initially get her to the room. Upon my complaining, the staff offered two other rooms which I checked. They both contained old furniture with either a view of the front street or pool area and rooftops! One half of our first day in San Antonio was spent looking for other suitable accomodations. We subsequently checked into the Holiday Inn, on St. Mary's Street on 8/13/2009 which provided excellent accomodations for the remainder of our stay. As a Priority Club member, this was a very unsatisfactory reservation!!!
