We recently stayed at the La Quinta Inn, San Antonio airport for 3 nights and then again for another night on the last night of our trip. The staff could not of been nicer. The check-in process was very quick and smooth. We had a smoking room but upon arrival there was no ashtray, after calling the desk they apologized and had one delivered within minutes.
The room itself was very nice, not fancy, but very clean and spacious. Refrigerator and microwave included was nice benefit. Bed and pillows were very comfortable. Hotel was quiet making a good nights rest easy to get. We may have been lucky but even other guests were very friendly! Free coffee is in the lobby 24/7 and there is also a 4 cup pot in the room. If you ask at the desk they will gladly give you more packages that you can use in room.
Free breakfast was nice, not a "full" breakfast, yet much better than a continental and completely adequate to start off the day. Loved the Texas shaped waffle! There is a nice patio off the breakfast room, very pretty for sitting out and enjoying the day. We did not use the pool, however the area looked very clean and nice as well.
The hotel also offers an area shuttle that will take you to and from the airport as well as anywhere within a 2 mile radius. They even dropped us at a store and then came back an hour later to take us to the bus stop so we could make the connection downtown. I think we had every driver there was and they were all great, full of suggestions on where to eat nearby. We never waited more than 10 minutes to come or go, and most times only about 5 minutes, was like having a personal chauffeur. Super Benefit for such a reasonably priced hotel.
If you do not have a car, getting to the downtown area is easy. The shuttle will take you to the NorthStar transit stop, which is guarded and seemed very safe. From there you can take several buses to the downtown area, we discovered the #3 to be the fastest as it doesn't stop at all the stops. An unlimited day pass is only 4 dollars or one time fee is 1.20. I would suggest once downtown though to buy the "hop on/ hop off" tour rather than continuing to use the bus system. It seems to be quite good, but can be a bit confusing if you don't know the area. The hop on/off tours, while more expensive are good for 2 days and take you directly to the main tourist areas, very convenient.
Back to the hotel..we had checked out to go to the coast for a few days and then returned to LaQuinta for our final day. When we returned we got there at 10:30 am, way before check in time. There were no rooms ready yet, but they graciously stored and tagged our luggage in a secure closet and allowed us to utilize the shuttle and coffee services even though we hadn't yet checked in which I thought was great.
I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this hotel to anyone. The area is safe and there are a lot of stores and restaurants within the 2 mile range. Downtown is only about 8 miles away and not a difficult drive.
