“More than I expected from a Hampton Inn”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

Definitely more than I expected from a Hampton Inn. Location is prime for visitors and rooms are above average for Hampton standards. Walking distance from several tourist attractions and plenty of restaurants to try out.

I have to say that while finding our way to this hotel, I was very worried about what we had gotten into. The neighborhood around the hotel is bad. Very trashy and run down. But when we got to the hotel I was relieved to see this hotel was MUCH better than I had anticipated.

While there was a $15/day parking fee, it was much less than most other hotels and the parking lot was gated.Check in was fast and the lady at the front desk was very friendly - we got a room on the 5th floor facing the highway. The room was very nice and the bathroom was large and clean! The heater/ac worked very well. My only complaint about the room was that the bed was too hard for me which got me with an aching back in the mornings. My husband on the other hand loved the bed!

They also offered free breakfast. And it wasn't just the normal continental breakfast found at most hotels. Not only did they have cereal, muffins, and toast but they had a waffle station, oatmeal, eggs, sausage, country potatoes, and biscuits and gravy. Granted it wasn't gourmet food by any means, but it was set out nicely, it was hot, and it was FREE. They also provided coffee and ice cold lemon/orange water all day.

Lastly, the location! GREAT! Just a few blocks from the Riverwalk and the Alamo but far enough away to avoid the traffic and busy streets. All in all we really enjoyed our stay here!

Not knowing San Antonio, I was a little concerned about the neighborhood, based on reviews of this and other hotels. Not to worry! While the immediate area was pretty empty at night, I never felt uncomfortable as I walked the two blocks to the Alamo or the three blocks to the Riverwalk. The hotel was what I expect of a Hampton: clean, comfortable and helpful. The front desk was extremely helpful with my computer needs, and the locked parking lot was a bonus, even though there was a charge.

I was in San Antonio for the Rock and Roll Half Marathon, the hotel was a few blocks from the Alamodome, so very conveniently located. Also a short walk to the Riverwalk area. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Pool had a great area to stretch out in the sun, but the pool wasn't heated.

two blocks from the Alamo, Riverwalk Mall and Riverwalk and easy walking distance to Hemisphere Park, this hotel is a great value. The back faces the interstate and there was noise from traffic in my room but it was worth it to be able to have easy access to San Antonio without needing a car. The breakfast area is clean and well supplied. As always, beds are very comfortable.

Mt husband and I were in San Antonio for a wedding and sightseeing. This Hampton Inn was 1 & 1/2 blocks from Alamo and Riverwalk . Was perfect distance from all things to do. Hotel felt very safe and was very clean and staff very friendly and helpful. Also, parking your car was in a very safe location.

Good location, Hotel is 2 blocks from the Alamo and a short stroll to the Riverwalk. It's also 3 blocks away from the busy and crowded Commerce St. Hotel was clean, quiet and each room has a microwave, coffee maker and refrigerator. Other amenities included free breakfast and free Wifi. Staff was very polite and the rooms were comfortable, altogether a good value. I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking to stay close to the Alamo and the downtown area of San Antonio. Don't forget to try a meal at the Schilo's Delicatessen for a old time German Deli treat.
