Good value in downtown San Antonio

Close to Riverwalk and Alamo, and not nearly as expensive as the hotels closer to or on the Riverwalk. Breakfast, Wi-Fi, and parking were all included in room rate. Nice size room with comfortable bed. Room lighting was dim, making nighttime reading or sewing difficult.

Great Bang for Your Buck

This Best Western has large comfortable rooms and a very good location, requiring only a short walk to the Riverwalk. The buffet breakfasts included pancakes eggs and meats in addition cold fare and was well worth the nominal fee. Parking was free. The staff was very helpful. We felt we received a great value. My family and I greatly enjoyed our stay and would return in a minute!

A Great TX deal!

This hotel is within walking distance of Riverwalk. Tower of Americas, the Alamo and other attractions. Parking was free, as opposed to hotels directly on the Riverwalk. The hotel and rooms were immaculate. The breakfast buffet for $3.45 was an excellent deal. I would recommend staying here to anyone who does not want to pay the inflated prices of staying directly on Riverwalk. There was no pool or attached restaurant, but we were not interested in either of those. Lots of eating choices on Riverwalk.

Best Western Sunset Suites/RIverwalk

We were in San Antonio for my son's graduation from Air Force basic training. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was on first floor and faced Commerce St. Was noisy due to traffic. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting room on backside of hotel or upper floors. Location very convenient to Riverwalk area and easy to get onto interstate to go to Lackland Air Force Base.

Delightful Surprise

This hotel is in a perfect location! You are close enough to the Riverwalk to enjoy the restaurants and shopping, but far enough away not to be involved in the touristy atmosphere. The trolley being right outside the door was a big plus.

Great Stay

There are so many great things to do in San Antonio. We ran out of time. We were impressed with the hotel. Nice staff, extras like Bath & Body in the bathroom, water fountain had orange slices in it, candy at the front desk and the best bed I have ever slept on in a hotel. The room was beautiful as well. Some may have thought it was too dark, but we loved it. No overhead lights, but plenty in the room. Was walking distance(two blocks) to the Alamodome, RiverCenter Mall, the boats on the RiverWalk and the Alamo. Also a short walk to the Towers of America. A trolley stop was right at the hotel and you could do the loop for a $1.10 or $4 all day pass. Parking lot is small, but they had parking available if full. Key card didn't work one time, but was solved quickly. Breakfast cost a little over $3 but was very good. We had a great stay and will be back.

At the Mexican Market, we ate at one of the best places. According to a local, it is something you must do. We loved it. Building had tons of atmosphere, food was great, waiter was awesome, lots of pastry you can buy that was reasonable when you leave. They also come around and play and sing for you at your table for a small fee.

Everything was great!!!

Although breakfast wasn't free it was worth the very small fee, $3.00. Bed was the most comfortable ever!!! Staff was very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed San Antonio in November, normally go during the summer. The riverwalk as well as Sea World weren't too crowded.

Took a boat trip to the new north part of the riverwalk, very much worth the trip for the beauty and uniqueness. Got to go through a channel! There aren't many shops or restuarants up there yet so eat before leaving the old part or take a lunch with you.
