Holiday Inn Express San Antonio Sea World
Ranked #131 of 358 Hotels in San Antonio
Reviewed July 9, 2010

This is the ideal place if your planning a trip to Sea World! It's just down the street, and even better, a free shuttle to take you to and from for FREE! Parking alone is $40 at Sea World. And the restaurant next to the Holiday Inn was great, perfect stay!

This hotel was a great place to stay if you're going to Sea World or on that side of town. I was in town for the Final 4 which was downtown. I didn't mind the 20 or so minute drive into downtown because I didn't want to be around the crowd. It worked for me. It was quiet and the beds were SOOO comfortable. I was in a room w/ a view of the air conditioners - not a problem since I purchased for a very cheap rate on priceline. But it was still a fabulous room and did it's job - a good night's rest at the end of a long day.

There is local dining 5 minutes or so down the street in every direction but I was glad they had a restaurant onsite, very convenient. The food was Ok, your typical sports bar, TGIF type food.

THe hotel itself is very nice and well laid out and decorated. Don't hesitate to book this hotel. It is fabulous.

I choose this hotel based on past reviews and I was not disappointed. The reason for my visit was to attend the graduation of BMT at Lackland AFB. I called to the hotel several times before I arrived with many questions, I was satisitied with all answers and pleased with the help that was offered. The staff is very friendly and the front dest was helpful as well. Nothing was a problem. The rooms were CLEAN, spacious, well maintained. There is a full breakfast offered in the morning and early enough that we could eat before heading out to the ceremonies. There was in indoor pool/hot tub, daily newspaper, huge movie center across the street, Texas Roadhouse (great meal) is on the corner and we walked there. This hotel is very easy to get to Lackland. All rooms have a refrigerator and micro wave. It is located right off of 410. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

This hotel was newly open. The staff and facilities were excellent and the swimming pools were lovely. The grill attached to the hotel serced very good food at reasonable prices and the kids ate free! They also provided a free shuttle bus at your convenieince to Seaworld where parking would have been $20.

We stayed here while in San Antonio to see our son graduate BMT at Lackland AFB. I chose this place simply because it had an indoor pool, but we all really appreciated the comfortable beds, the breakfast buffet, and the ease with which we were able to travel to and from the base and get to downtown from there. We also enjoyed the wide selection of restaurants and shopping at the enormous, new Academy Sports down the road.

I was so relieved to have chosen a place that was safe, convenient, and reasonably priced. I would recommend it to anyone who needed to travel to that area.

My family stayed here for a week in August of 2009. This is by far one of the best hotels I have stayed at in a while. Our room was very clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great and always kept stocked with pleanty of choices to eat. We have 3 teens and were able to reserve a room with 2 double beds and a queen in a separate room for mom and dad. There is a movie theater across the street. It was close to Sea World. The Ingram Mall was near. I will be staying here everytime i go to San Antonio.

We spent 5 nights here while visiting family. The public areas and rooms are spotless (they even smell clean), the breakfast buffet is kept hot, fresh,and tidily stocked by pleasant servers, and the desk was staffed by friendly and efficient hosts. There were a lot of families staying here and kids playing in the indoor pool who all seemed to get along with each other. The corridors were quiet, as was our room, which had a nice view to the outskirts of San Antonio. We will stay here again when next we visit the family.
