We traveled to San Antonio for our son’s graduation from USAF Basic Military Training. The room was very basic with 2 queen beds but had a flat screen TV larger than most hotels along with a refrigerator and a microwave. The area is on the sketchy side, but the location of being literally 100 yards from the gate to Lackland...

We came down for my brother's Air Force Ceremony at Lackland AFB. This was the only place that had reservations left and so we jumped on it especially since it was right next door to the Lackland. Unfortunately, we were unaware of staying on base and saving money as compared to here. The rooms were run down and mediocre, could...

I stayed here for one night, since I was visiting a friend at Lackland. It was extremely cheap, so I was prepared for less-than-stellar accommodations, but this place is still pretty rough. There was graffiti on some of the (old and rickety) furniture, the door to the room was really hard to open and close, and the bathroom light flickered...

Affordable and still has so much more to offer. They have a good breakfast and are so close to so many restaurants if you want something a little different. The staff is so friendly and goes out of their way to make sure you have all the info you need to get around.

My family stayed here for 5 nights for my son's graduation from BMT. The best thing about this hotel is that it is right next to the Valley Gate. That's it. The room was so out dated and nasty. It did smell musky. The toilet ran constantly and the tank leaked so the bathroom floor was constantly wet. The sink...

I stayed there for my boyfriend's graduation USAF Basic training and would return to stay. The staff was very friendly and respectful. The room was clean. You can walk to the base that is within walking distance. It has fast food restaurants around and a Walgreens a accecible away. I definitely would return to stay there.

I booked this online, so I could attend my Nephew Graduating from AFB training. The motel is next to the base, and I was able to walk to ceremony. Hotel room was painted lime green, toilet was non functioning, and the room smelled of mold. I stayed two nights and couldn't wait to leave. Staff was very nice, but don't...

The worst place i have ever been in. Came in and smelled of mold. Big puddle on floor and the carpet was soaking wet. Ceiling falling apart. Nothing was plugged in. Food left in the fridge.
