For one there are people walking all around the parking lot. Some are waiting for the bus since there's a big bus stop across the street but then there is also a big group of homeless people in the area. Room was disgusting and dirty. There was used ear swabs on the floor. And hair everywhere when we came into... More

My Dad and I stayed here last week for one night in San Antonio. Prior to the start of our trip, I was reading the reviews below about it and it made it sound like I was going to have to fight for my life to get in and out. Let me say that some of the negative reviews don't... More

We chose this motel due to its location and the fact that we were only passing through with a few hours to sight see. The hotel is a short drive from Interstate 10 which is convenient and appears reasonably well maintained. The room was very clean and air con worked well, although there was initially a slightly lingering damp smell... More

This place was very convenient to where I needed to be and great for the price. Market Square was so close as well as the Riverwalk. The staff was great and very helpful. I read some other reviews about street gangs and drug users around this motel, but I didn't experience any of that. I am a woman and was... More

We got to the hotel at about 1AM, so the lobby is closed and you have to go to something like a bank window. Apparently, the staff feels too unsafe to leave the door open in this neighborhood. So I go to the window and a sign says Please Press White Button- but there is not white button to press.... More

We stay here when we go to San Antonio with kids. With exception to all the drug users that hang out under the freeway bridge and that back parking lot used as a route by them it's great. The security does real good at keeping things under control.

The motel laundry was broken and non-functional, door safety latch was missing half the equipment, and the phone didn't work because there was a dangling wire where a phone jack should be. I didn't feel safe at this location, and it seemed like I was in a ghetto. It was the worst Motel 6 I have seen. The pool was... More

Room was comfortable. Convenient location with a McDonalds next door. Room had no fridge, microwave or coffee pot and was apparently set up for a single person stay.

It is a motel, so don't expect much. It is clean, but not romantic nor beautiful. To me, it seeemed a bit pricey, especially since it's not downtown. At least, the employees are nice. If you are a solo traveller in San Antonio (or a backpacker), this is a good option for few days (SA doesn't have hostels, unfortunately).
