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.

Great Place to See the Riverwalk

The hotel was clean; the rooms had a flat screen TV with computer hookups and a full size refrigerator. The AC worked well and kept the room comfortable. It is close to the Riverwalk, but not so close that you are paying top dollar for location. There were two wedding parties -- one each night -- but things calmed down early enough for us. It is also convenient to the airport. Staff got us cabs very quickly. Cabbies were great too. Overall a positive experience.

A Hidden Gem

The Best Western Alamo Suites is a hidden gem. I stayed there for four days and during my stay, the service was extraordinary. The staff was always willing to help our every needs from fetching taxis, to changing money, to providing the best products and breakfast food possible. their breakfast provided something for everyone. The only negative aspect is the location. This hotel is located several miles from Downtown and taxis can get expensive. Not on a comfortable walking distance. However, public transportation is accessible and at a great rate. Take time to learn the routes and your trip will be wonderful. A plus is that it is walking distance from a wonderful Mexican bakery.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

For vegetarians, The Original Mexican Restaurant on the Riverwalk offers good choices for vegetarians. A great choice is the calabacitas quesadillas. Another choice is the chile poblano stuffed with calabacitas. These are wonderful choices on the Riverwalk. For desert, you must try the Mexican bread at Mi Tierra. The vegetarian choices are not great but the pastries are delicious.

EL PASO TRAVELERS EXPERIENCE

THE HOTEL EXPERIENCE ITSELF WAS OUTSTANDING. EVERY COMFORT IMAGINABLE WAS AVAILABLE. THE LOCATION HOWEVER, WAS VERY MISREPRESENTED. THE RIVERWALK WAS MUCH MORE THAN A MILE DISTANT AND THE HOTEL LOCATION WAS SITUATED IN A DISMAL UNSAFE APPEARING AREA; UNFIT FOR FEMALE TRAVELERS.
