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.

Clean and comfortable. Great staff.

Greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. Lobby and room were very neat and clean. Being just 2 blocks from the Riverwalk you can't beat the price/quality.

A great find

We had two nights in San Antonio and this was a brilliant choice of hotel to stay in. The guy on reception was welcoming,friendly and helpful - changing our room with no problem. The recption area is part of an old building and has a lot of atmosphere, and waxed wooden floors. Our room was comfortable and clean and a good size. All the staff were friendly. Continental breakfast could be had for a small charge and was fine. Parking is free. The Alamo and the Riverwalk were a 10/15 minute walk away.

Las Ramblas is a real find. Sit by the riverwalk, watching the tour boats go by and enjoy delicious tapas and a glass or two of wine.

If you had breakfast you had to pay for it. At the other 4 Best Westerns we stayed at during our trip, the breakfast was complimentary.

The hotel was within walking distance of the Riverwalk and the Alamo. A bus stop was next to the hotel, and the bus system is the best way to easily get to other attractions such as the zoo, botanical gardens, missions, Mexican Market and many more.
