“Budget Place near Alamo with some risks!”
Reviewed April 9, 2010

I choose this motel cause of the price and location. It is only a few minute walk to the Alamo. There is plenty of free parking on site. There is a pool near by and rooms are quite accessible.

I have stayed in many places and never had a problem. However this place did not agree with me. It was in a bad side of town. Lots of hoodlums and run down buildings nearby. The motel parking lot had lots of bums in it and hoodlums as well. The rooms was ok, but not very clean. The toilet was not cleaned and stains of poo poo was all over the seat still. There was used Condoms on the floor. The walls were very thin and you could hear everything.
During the night for 3 hours a couple were screaming at each other all night. Till some guy yelled he would threaten to shoot them if they did not stop. They did.

Overall it was nice and close to the Alamo and price was very cheap.

So It was a tough call. IF your looking for a cheap place to stay its ideal, just be careful with your belongings. Can be rough.
cheers

The rooms are dingy, tiles off the ceiling in the bathrooms...some heaters did not work, or only worked part time....no heat in the breakfast room...food marginal...internet did not work for the 2 days we stayed....junk and garbage around but not in the dumpster...computer down on check out...only hand written paper to show charges on credit card....would not recommend any hotels operated by this manager in San Antonio.

We were only in town for the night to see the Riverwalk and Downtown... a stopover on a very long road trip east. We stayed here to save money. We weren't expecting much. The rooms are large and comfy, but very dated and dirty. The only good thing about this place was the WiFi. We were unable to take showers there because the bathtub was FILTHY and there was no hot water. **IT IS** within walking distance to the Alamo and Riverwalk, but the immediately surrounding blocks are a little scary and we were uncomfortable walking back and forth. Entire property needs renovation badly. As I said, it was just a road trip stopover... we weren't expecting much... we don't have unrealistic standards... but I don't think it's too much to expect to be able to BATHE. Would not recommend this place to anyone.

This hotel is only a few blocks from an entrance to the Riverwalk, saving us the hassle and expense of parking. They were in the process of remodeling, so hopefully it will be modernized soon... it was very outdated. But for the location and the price, we were very pleased. The continental breakfast was very convenient. We will definitely stay there the next time we visit the Riverwalk.

I think it's not a good option in San Antonio. It's a cheap hotel but for the same price you could find something better. The pictures are really different that the reality. It's a dirty place, smell bad and is not clean. I didn't have a good experience there. Moreover, the breakfast it's poor in quality.

Our destination was the River Walk. We stayed in a double (123). Price was half what the hotels on the river cost. Its about a 10 minute walk or easy drive to the River Center Mall / River Walk / Alamo. We drove and parked at the mall. I give the location a "B"

The staff was nice and helpful. I give them an "A."

I strongly suggest asking to see the room first . The first room I checked (105) smelled like wet dog/carpet. The second one was better. The overall cleanliness of the room gets a "B" because the shoer mate was stained (My Opinion: stains on things like bath mates, towels and sheets are a real turn off) everything else was okay.

The condition of the Hotel and Room in general was less than desirable. The outside, while clearly old, was clean but not super attractive - Functional. The interior needed repairs. Missing ceiling tile in bathroom, Some sheetrock repair needed. I give the condition of the room a "D."

The beds were not great. If you are used to pillow top comfort, this one is not for you. If you can sleep anywhere and you only plan to stay a night or 2, it works. I give the beds a "C."

The Breakfast gets a "B." Better than the average but not the best I've had. For this class hotel it was pretty good.

Considering the price compared to the others I checked in the area; the fact that we only stayed 1 night and we are mostly concerned with cleanliness and location, I would cautiously consider staying at this location again. Always check the room first.
