“Loved it”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

This was a great hotel. Extremely friendly service, starting off with Priscilla at check-in. Right off the bat, she gave us free parking for our 5-day stay, told us the best place to eat, and gave us maps of local sites. It's a unique hotel, in that it used to be a jail - now it is restored and very comfortable. My kids loved the pool (heated). Great job with breakfasts, as well. We tend to hit it late, and the food was always well-stocked.
Thanks for such a great stay!

My family was here for a wedding. The rooms were good and the breakfast was very good and plenty of it. The staff in the hotel were very helpful, especially Monica who worked in the kitchen preparing and keeping everything stocked. She was very helpful in locating areas to visit and just overall kind. The only downfall to the hotel was that the elevator was very slow. Enjoyed my visit there and would go again if the chance arrives. P.S. Very interesting that it used to be a jail.

Dear Mona,

Thank you for your recent review of the Historic Holiday Inn Express in San Antonio TX! I am sorry to hear of the elevator issues however due to the historic status of the building it is difficult for us to add on certain items. We do appreciate your feedback and hope to see you again the next time your travels bring you to San Antonio!

Small hotel in a historic building completely restored and up-to date. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Monique at the front desk went out of her way to make sure our stay was perfect. Enjoyed the breakfast buffet with variety enough for anyone and Monica works very hard to keep things fresh and flowing. Will stay here every time we visit SA.

Hotel is clean and very nice. Staff was outstanding and also attentive. Pool is very small and the workout facility is almost non-existence. There were five people in our group staying in various rooms and two experienced strange activity with their rooms, not sure if ghosts or electrical surges...! Parking is difficult at best. The area is a good walk to the river walk. The area is a little rough and the hotel would benefit from having an off-duty officer on premise.

Room Tip: Watch your heads on 5 floor low ceilings if your over 6'0.

A very unique hotel, being an old prison. Very centrally located, parking across the street, short walk to downtown, river walk, market and the Alamo. Good size rooms, breakfast included, friendly staff. Fairly quiet location and value for money. Will stay there again on my next visit.

All of the staff was helpful, friendly and made a point to make us feel welcome. Especially Monique. She is an asset!!! She was professional, efficient, and has an amazing personality. The beds and pillows were wonderful. Everything was clean and attractive. Nif the other Holiday inn expresses are anything like this one, I will definitely make them my hotel of choice and recommend them to anyone in need of a hotel room. Oops, I almost forgot the breakfast, it definitely was NOT continental.
