“Excellent experience”
Reviewed 17 October 2011

I live in ND and needed a motel in San Antonio for several days. I researched MANY accomodations there - looking at price, location (in relation to Sea World, Air Force Base and downtown), breakfast, free parking and accommodations for five in the room. I narrowed down to a few but seemed to come back to this motel as the best one. It was not located in a great part of town but other than that the experience from arrival to departure was excellent!! After several days at the motel we would have liked a variation in the breakfast but we were extremely happy to have a breakfast and it was tastey. The room was large, had a fridge and was very clean. The four staff members that I dealt with were all extremely helpful and polite every time. The breakfast was all good and fresh. The seating was small but we had no problems ever having a spot. The pool area was a little small but very warm and clean. The parking was free with a large lot. The temperature in the room was nice and the beds had new comforters that came only half way up which I love rather than the old awful comforters that motel beds usually have cuz I usually take them off anyway. I would recommend this motel and if I went down there again I would stay love to stay at this motel. We stayed Sept 14 to 19th and it was very warm outside but the motel was a great temperature. I used the laundry facilities and had problems getting the detergent out of the vending machine but I was promptly reimbursed. The stay was very favorable.

We arrived late evening and check in was a breeze. The staff were friendly and knew their job. The room was one the 3rd floor which was a bit of a problem with 6 suitcases and only one elevator. It meant one had to stay with the car while the others had to que for a while and do shuttle runs with the cases.We had booked a suite which was more than adequte even with 4 adults and all the luggage. The breakfast was very good with plenty of choice.The down side was that there was'nt enough tables so sometimes you had to wait for a table or eat standing up.The car park had video camera monitoring although someone did have theit truck broken into while we were there.There is'nt much to do around the hotel but its a five minute walk to the trolley stop and about 15 minutes walk to downtown which saves on parking costs.

Very clean rooms, staff very friendly and helpful, continental breakfast was more than sufficient. We were quite surprised at a full size refrigerator in the room. It was a little too close to the interstate, but we were looking for accomodation downtown and this is where we stayed for 4 days.

The location of the hotel was SO convenient to the riverwalk and trolley. The riverwalk is about a 10 walk away, and the trolley is just on the next block - which was particularly wonderful for the return trip back to the hotel after a day of sight-seeing.
The hotel itself is full of 19th century, Arts & Crafts decor. Original wood floors (building was once a warehouse) are beautiful and intricately laid. The breakfast buffet was delicious, and there was even a free, limited choice, dinner. Definitely would return next time we're in San Antonio.

Room Tip: Period lighting is a little dim in the rooms.

Never again will i stay at this hotel. Horrible! When we arrived we saw that it was located in a bad location, at checking the manager was so rude. The rooms are nothing like shown on the internet and they have a weird smell to them. The hallways and the elevator are so hot. Dont expect a good breakfast all they offer is waffles, hard boiled eggs, cereal, toast and bagels and to top it off me and my sister in law got sick from eating their food. The pool is small and their towels have a lot of stains on them. The hotel is run down period. They need to renovate this hotel!
