Great location and value

I chose this because it looked convenient to the Alamo and had easy access and parking. It satisfied all those expectations. The room was comfortable. Refrigerator was a bonus. Service was excellent.

Great spot: Good Hotel

The staff was very helpful. The location is excellent. Breakfast ends at 9:30am... maybe it would have been a bit better if it went at least until 10:30am. Besides that, it was a great experience!
