Reviewed 15 September 2011

I went to visit my husband at Fort Sam Houston. The people were very helpful giving me directions and even drawing me a map. The room was very clean. However on the 3rd day i was there, the housekeeper didnt come until about 4 in the afternoon, i didnt even have towels until almost 5 pm. The rates are very good for what you get. the only thing i would change is the breakfast. They dont have a lot to eat in the morning. its a "you get what you pay for" moment. Other wise it was an awesome time!!

The second night we found not one clean towel in our room,instead we find again dirty floors and a dirty towel on the corner of the room. We called front desk and explained everything that was found on this day and prior day. The lady said she would leave a note to manager to inform her. We knew booking this hotel it wasn't going to be a modern updated holiday. Inn but was at least expecting a clean comfortable room,instead it was the worst dirty hotel! I Do NOT recommend! Unless u don't mind dirtyness.

We didn't like the fact that none of the ice machines were working in the middle of July. We had ice chest that we wanted to fill to cut down of the cost of buying beverages. We paid cash for our room once we arrived but the hotel still charged my credit card for the full amount too.

My family and I enjoyed our stay here. The room was big and spacious. Everything in the room worked well ( hair dryer, tv, internet, ac, microwave, refrig., etc). The pool was clean, and the hot tub was relaxing. The service was great!! Everyone was very hepful with directions to our many places to visit. It was more than expected for the price.

Room Tip: We were downstairs in room 135, which was close to the pool, front office, vending machines, and we...

This my second time staying at this hotel and each time was great. All the staff are kind and helpful, the rooms are clean, when ever you call for something they are there. And the breakfast is spectacular. All of this for a great price.

We got a great deal by booking through this hotel's website. It was cheaper than all the other famous ones. We enjoyed our stay. The pool was right off our suite and the hotel
location was very convenient. Natural Bridge Caverns and the Wildlife Ranch were within 25 minutes drive. The staff were very friendly and the hotel was family oriented which was very convenient for us. There is a supertarget nearby and plenty of shops and restaurants. The only downside was that the breakfast did not include a lot of varieties and fruits as it was advertised in the hotel description. I got my fruits on our third day after having to ask more than twice. We would definitly stay there again.
