Suitable for conference travel

The hotel was adequate for my needs. It was clean although a bit worn around the edges. The mattress was a bit soft for my taste, but I woke up with no aches or pains. I attended a conference in San Antonio. I thought the hotel would be closer to the convention center than it actually was, but found a short cut via Villita street that cut walking time in half. The hotel is right on the river walk, so you can take the scenic route to all the downtown tourist attractions. Although It's on the quiet end, I felt perfectly safe walking to and from the convention center at night. I think the best thing the hotel has going for it is it's staff who were friendly, responsive, and helpful.

winderful location

Rooms are very nice. Staff was awesome. Room was a little cold, but very comfortable. The location is awesome if you are wanting to visit The Alamo or the Riverwalk. Highly recommend it for its value.

Very nice overnight stay

We had planned a one night stay as we moved on to other places but found San Antonio to be very delightful and this hotel was conveniently located. We will return on our way back.

Mixed Review

The hotel d├ęcor is pretty cool and it is a great location. That said, the room smelled so strong of smoke that we could hardly sleep. It was not a designated nonsmoking room but seriously you should not walk in and go oh yuck this smells like smoke. Have ya ever heard of fabreze? Also it was the 4th of July and there was a pool party going on until 3:00 a.m. and we were poolside. For what we paid a night I expect much more than a smelly noisy night. Just for the record I am not a complainer but hope you take my comments and improve in the future.

I DONT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL!

First, the costumer service doesn't give you a good costumer service. Second, they 're selling room for a not reasonable price, coz' the fact that the room sucks. Some of the employee's are friendly, but the costumer service over the phone is really bad. I dont recommend this hotel. And the same day i was checking out, somebody was complaining about the rooms too because it was bad all in all

Good Value

My family stayed in two rooms. Overall, the rooms were adequate but the bath tubs needed to be replaced since it is slippery and the fixtures are old and rusty. Staff was nothing special. The common areas were old and needed to be updated. To highly advertised for what it really is.
