Quoted one price then charged another. Asked for non smoking room and called to confirm that I was in a non smoking room, but still given a smoking room.

Also charged a second time for no reason.

I learned this hotel charges by the hour also.

Don't go there. Sleeping in a car or on the side walk would be better than this place.

Do NOT stay here if you value your vacations. The rooms were dirty with cockroaches everywhere. The rooms were cramped and soiled. Had to ask for my money back even though they didn't want to give my refund. After about 1/2 an hour of arguing I did get my money back.

I don't know why this place has so many bad reviews but our experience there was great! The man at the check-in desk was super friendly and helpful. Our room was nice, we had a king bed, tv, microwave, and refrigerator. I saw a review online that said they didn't have many channels and that their wifi didn't work but they had over 60 channels and the wifi worked great when I hooked it up to my room. Another review also said that the rooms smelled like smoke which is not true. The main hallway has somewhat of an odor of smoke to it but only because some rooms are smoking and some are not, so that makes sense. The rooms that are for smokers are next to each other and the ones for non smoking are together as well so there should not be a problem with the smell. The room was very clean,so where the sheets. I had to check them because I read reviews saying that they were stained, which again was proven to be wrong. I went there dreading my stay due to all of the negative reviews but it turned out to be great! It was comfortable and everything in downtown San Antonio was in walking distance. I will definitely be staying here next time we visit San Antonio. My advice is ignore all the negative reviews and see for yourself. It's a very good price and a comfortable stay!

Room Tip: Choose a non-smoking one. :)

first of all - i never write reviews (good or bad). i'm making an exception this time. this is the most disgusting "hotel" i've ever seen in my life and i've traveled all over the world and stayed in some nasty places! the lobby, the outside, the hallways and the un-safe room were all disgusting and wreaked of horrible, indescribable smells! the shower curtain had mildew and stains on it and when mentioned to the front desk manager Mr Patel, he said it's made this way. really?! you purchased pre-stained showers curtains? i left this hotel after calling priceline.com to get my $$ back so i could go elsewhere. The RUDE manager, Mr Patel yelled at priceline on the phone and slammed it down yelling to me that he was still billing me for 1 nights stay and parking. wow-great customer service! i would rather stay under a bridge - it would be safer and cleaner!!! oh, in regards to safety. the security bolt on the door looked like someone had broken into that room before and they hadn't replaced the lock yet! RUN!!!!

This place doesn't seem to get good reviews but it was close enough to walk to the Riverwalk & the Alamodome. Has a fridge & microwave. It can be a bit noisy, will cost you $10 to park in their lot, the fridge wasn't plugged in so we lost almost a complete fajita dinner we were saving, and it's not close to any gas stations, and my fiancee said the room smelled. Sounds like a lot of complaints but I thought it was a decent value with a decent number of amenities.
