“Don't Bother”
Reviewed 16 March 2011

I was looking for a good deal close to the Riverwalk for a weekend stay. Prices were reasonable so booked this hotel.

Big mistake...not only did the microwave, fridge and safe not work...after walking around for 7 hours on Saturday we return to rest in the room for a few hours. We had not been there 10 minutes before the room started smelling funny and we could see smoke forming. No alarms or smoke detectors every sounded. We were on the second floor and the room below us to the right had a minor fire but lots of smoke. Fire Department showed up and knocked out the window in our room. Management sent us to their other motel a Super 8. Room located next to highway in really bad neighborhood..needless to say the vacation became over halfway through....manager said he would refund the one night haven't seen it yet....

I was leary of this motel based on the reviews it had gotten but could not beat the price so I decided to take a gamble......glad that I did! If you are expecting the Ritz-Carlton this motel is not for you. However, if you are expecting a great value, decent clean place to stay, and a convenient location this motel is for you. The trolley stops right outside the hotel and you can ride it all over town. We bought a $4 pass and rode it all day (we got our moneys worth on that deal, downtown, market square, hotel, back downtown, riverwalk, etc). My daughter really got a kick out the trolley - and that is saying something for a teenager. We had our small dog with us on this trip and everything went smoothly. The office has a view of the entire facility (we had been concerned about our car while we were out and about) and it is manned 24/7. All in all this was a fun Spring Break trip and when we go back to San Antonio we will probably stay there again.

Room for two cost $79.89. Two queen size beds in large clean room. Separate dressing area and bathroom. Staff was friendly and informative. Breakfast buffet included cereals, rolls, and make-your-own waffles. Hotel was five short (half) blocks from Alamo, River Mall, and River Walk and was an easy safe 5-10 minute walk. Enjoyed our stay here.

I am not picky by any means. My husband and I travel a lot and usually stay in budget accomadations. This place was below my thresold of acceptable. For the price I didn't expect anything too great. However, the room was very small and located right in front of the elevator on the 3rd floor and next to the family that managed the place. We were awaken every morning at 6:30 am with the children banging on the wall and/or slamming the door. The walls were paper thin so you could hear everything going on in the hallway. The room smelled of some thing unidentifiable but whatever it was it wasn't pleasant. Shower curtain was the dirtiest thing I have ever seen. I think there was blood on it...

Great location and very close to the North extension of theRiverwalk, but you might want to consider spending a bit more for something nicer if you like to sleep in and enjoy pleasent smells in a clean room. Cheaper price if you call the hotel directly.

The grounds are "under renovation" and definitely need major overhaul but when done the price will likely go up. The outside looks terrible, dirty, stained, falling apart. The room carpet very dirty. Found 7or 8 hairs in the shower - disgusting. If you don't mind the kind of hotel were people stay on the weekly or monthly rate, you will do okay here. The room had the amenities of a good hotel and the king sized bed was comfortable. The location was awesome - short walk to downtown Riverwalk area. The morning breakfast was great and the woman in charge of it was on her job, which the cleaning staff was not. I came here because of the coupon in the travel coupon book was way cheaper than any other hotel in this area. I see why.

I read a lot of negative reviews about this hotel and almost changed my non-refundable booking a few times, so I am happy to report that

a) the bathroom was clean with no stains
b) the airconditioner worked very well
c) there were no scary insect manifestations
d) there were no homeless people hanging around nearby or in the grounds
e) the safe was attached to the room

I never spend much time in hotel rooms but I did spend most of one day in this one due to heavy rain and it was fine - good high speed internet, decent tv with lots of channels and waterproof. Also, all guests seemed to be quiet which made for a great sleep of a night.

It IS a run down hotel in many ways, but the staff are good and it is fine as a base from which to explore San Antonio. The area around the centre of San Antonio and the Alamo plaza are both scarier than the location of this hotel.

It was not very clean, but the value is great.
I need to find another hotel in the same area for the same price 80.00 per night.
My recommendation would be questionable
