Great Value!

We stayed here as we passed through on our way to the coast and were pleasantly surprised with how well we did for the price. We did get a king size suite, so we had a little extra space. The Riverwalk was maybe a 5 minute drive, so it was really convenient to just go out to dinner and stroll. The only complaint I would have is that when we got to the room the floor was still a bit wet from being cleaned, but hey, I know it was cleaned! The front desk help was also very pleasant!

Bed bug bites

Everything was perfect until the last night. I got bitten by bed bug bites in Room 314. The hotel and staff is wonderful but the creepy crawlers are there sharing a room with you.

Nice stay

Overall great place to stay to tour the city. Not close enough to safely walk downtown and back, but a 2 minute drive if you have a car. Free parking and the room was huge, with a full size fridge and a half wall between the bed and the sofa bed. Pet boarding building next door, and I could hear the dogs barking at times, but not when I was trying to sleep.

A Hidden Gem

The Best Western Alamo Suites is a hidden gem. I stayed there for four days and during my stay, the service was extraordinary. The staff was always willing to help our every needs from fetching taxis, to changing money, to providing the best products and breakfast food possible. their breakfast provided something for everyone. The only negative aspect is the location. This hotel is located several miles from Downtown and taxis can get expensive. Not on a comfortable walking distance. However, public transportation is accessible and at a great rate. Take time to learn the routes and your trip will be wonderful. A plus is that it is walking distance from a wonderful Mexican bakery.

For vegetarians, The Original Mexican Restaurant on the Riverwalk offers good choices for vegetarians. A great choice is the calabacitas quesadillas. Another choice is the chile poblano stuffed with calabacitas. These are wonderful choices on the Riverwalk. For desert, you must try the Mexican bread at Mi Tierra. The vegetarian choices are not great but the pastries are delicious.
