Loved this hotel.

The room was quite comfortable! Instead of the typical blah hotel blanket, it had a nice comforter like blanket which was a nice change from the norm. For the price and the location, I can't imagine being happier. I've already recommended this hotel to family who plan to visit the city later this year.

Best Western Sunset Suites-Riverwalk

Great hotel. The first night our room was on the street side and it was loud. We moved to the parking lot side the second night and it was much better.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

There is a Denny's close by, but the hotel breakfast was enough for our family and a great price too. Trolly access is available right across the street and was a great help to navigate around the city for a low fare. Watch out while dining out on the Riverwalk if you are a large party....the gratuity was brutal.

Great Bang for Your Buck

This Best Western has large comfortable rooms and a very good location, requiring only a short walk to the Riverwalk. The buffet breakfasts included pancakes eggs and meats in addition cold fare and was well worth the nominal fee. Parking was free. The staff was very helpful. We felt we received a great value. My family and I greatly enjoyed our stay and would return in a minute!

A Great TX deal!

This hotel is within walking distance of Riverwalk. Tower of Americas, the Alamo and other attractions. Parking was free, as opposed to hotels directly on the Riverwalk. The hotel and rooms were immaculate. The breakfast buffet for $3.45 was an excellent deal. I would recommend staying here to anyone who does not want to pay the inflated prices of staying directly on Riverwalk. There was no pool or attached restaurant, but we were not interested in either of those. Lots of eating choices on Riverwalk.
