Outstanding service, very clean.

The hotel was blocks away from the Riverwalk. It was exceptionally clean and the staff was very courteous. Rooms were spacious and couldn't be beat for the price. Free parking and free wifi made this a top choice over the hotels that were on the riverwalk.

Great place to stay!!!

I love this hotel. About the only thing they don't have that would have made this place over the top would be a pool.

Excellent staff, location and price

Right from check-in the reception staff were extremely helpful in suggestions and booking tours etc. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and have all necessary facilities. Air-con. is noisy but very efficient. Good breakfast offered. Trolley stop outside hotel but easy flat walking distance to most locations. Every request was dealt with immediately and would highly recommend this hotel.

So So

The room is spacious and clean. The location is good, not so close to the river walk although it claims to be. It takes about 10~15 mins to walk there which is not so nice in hot weather especially when some ones requested money on the road at nights.

Fantastic location and hotel

My sister took a few days for a catch-up getaway. The hotel was great. Extremely clean and comfortable. Access to the trolley/bus was across from the hotel. We never needed to use the car because of the great transportation system. We spent much time on the riverwalk shopping/eating and then a short ride back to the hotel. We look forward to making this an annual event and staying in this location.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

You can make a walk to the riverwalk but we chose the bus because of physical limitations for walking. What a great place to eat, shop, hang out.

Clean, convenient and reasonable

This was a perfect location for our visit to San Antonio to see our son's USAF Basic Training graduation- 20 mins to Lackland, 25 mins to SeaWorld, 5 min walk to Riverwalk and Alamo, 15 mins to Airport. The hotel is right off a main highway and the room was a good size with a seating area and the hotel is kept very clean. No pool but all other amenities.

Walking distance from downtown

The hotel was nice and clean. It was a short distance from downtown and the Alamodome for the concert I went to go see.

Great room, great service

We were just 2 blocks from the Riverwalk and all of the downtown attractions. We never had to drive the car. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the room was even better than we had hoped. This is a great place to stay.
