    Stayed here for family visit to San Antonio. Wanted to be near River Walk, and this place fit the bill. Clean rooms, great staff, decent breakfast. Will be back!! Will book a room with balcony on next visit, as rooms are on small side.

    No restaurant on site but there is a pizza place next door. I do not think there are any suites or jacuzzi tubs. The balcony rooms do not have private balconies. Nice place but probably not for romantic getaways.
