Great stay!

We enjoyed our stay here. We left our car parked there the whole time we were there and used the Via trolleys. Great way to see the city and save $$. Would stay there again. Helpful staff. Very friendly. My children enjoyed the indoor pool. B/C it's indoors, though, the chlorine smell is pretty intense.

Never Again

The location is very scary but I guess you get what you pay for. The rooms were damp and moldy and even with the air on and the windows open it was hard to breathe. We found blood on our bed sheets and had to call the front desk several times to get the sheets changed. We ended up going to a store to buy all new sheets and pillow cases so that we could sleep comfortably. With all the extra money I spent, we could have just gone to a 4 or 5 star! We will never ever stay here again! NEVER!

Ok Place

First let me say the Staff was always friendly and helpful. The hotel is old and the room is fairly clean but the furniture is never moved to clean the floor under it. That was obvious. The fold out couch mattress is extremely uncomfortable and needs a new mattress. Our room faced a pet sitter building that starts taking dogs at 630 and they bark all day long. The hotel was a decent price but I probably will spend the extra 10 bucks a night to stay somewhere else.

Nice place to stay

Because we don't drive, the hotel is a bit remote from downtown. Otherwise, it is an ideal place to stay.

Good Value Close to Downtown with No Parking Fees

Loved this place! 2 king sized beds plus a sleep sofa. 42 inch flat screen TV. Good free continental breakfast. No charge for parking like other hotels in the downtown area. Very friendly staff. Only problem encountered was a hair dryer which did not work which was replaced promptly. Close to Market Square and downtown.

What you lay for

Best thing about it is that it has free parking.. It is pretty close to the center of San Antonio but nothing is within walking distance. It's perfect place to stay in if you just need a place to sleep and have a car.. The staff was very nice and cooperative.

Conference Trip

This place is nice. The service was excellent. It is an old place but somewhat clean. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was GREAT! There is only one thing and this hotel has no control over it. That is location. I took the shuttle to here. I was planning to walk to the conference. Location is not an ideal place. BUT overall I was satisfied.
