Close to Riverwalk

This was a great choice for the balance between price and being close to the Riverwalk; 2 blocks from the Rivercenter Mall. The Hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was available from 6-9am, but there was a charge of $3 & change per person for it. They had hot breakfast items and kept the buffet stocked regularly. It would have been nice to have access to a pool but not a deal breaker for us.

Overall

If you had breakfast you had to pay for it. At the other 4 Best Westerns we stayed at during our trip, the breakfast was complimentary.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel was within walking distance of the Riverwalk and the Alamo. A bus stop was next to the hotel, and the bus system is the best way to easily get to other attractions such as the zoo, botanical gardens, missions, Mexican Market and many more.

Good location.

Visited the riverwalk several times. A short two blocks away. Desk personnel were very helpful in many ways. They even got us permission to use a sister motel's pool.

So So

The room is spacious and clean. The location is good, not so close to the river walk although it claims to be. It takes about 10~15 mins to walk there which is not so nice in hot weather especially when some ones requested money on the road at nights.

A Great Vacation

We had a great time. Our first trip to San Antonio. Weather was great, the Riverwalk is spectacular and the hotel was perfect for us. We got there in the evening so didn't want to take the several-block walk to downtown and the RW, so we tried Aldaco's at Sunset Station, within a block from us. It was great -- the food, service and ambience. Thank you to the reviewer who recommended it. Also had dinner at the expensive Little Rhein House on the RW and were a little disappointed. We ate outside and the gnats loved our (pretty darn expensive) wine. In fairness, the restaurant did give us another bottle. We didn't find the food worthy of the price, though. Besides that, a fantastic few days, and the people were great, especially Vicky. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, it was clean and we had plenty of room. Easy walk to everything - maybe just one block closer in would have been perfect.

The Riverwalk is beautiful, and we found the street level very interesting also. The Buckhorn and Texas Ranger Museums, the Majectic Theater, the Gunter Hotel and the historic facades of the newer buildings were all a real treat.

good vlalue for the money

A nice hotel, not very modern, but comfortable/ The location is in walking distance of the Alamo and the river walk. The staff could be more efficient

near the trolly route

Very nice staff, just wish this hotel was closer to the riverwalk and didn't have to take the trolly - at least the trolly (bus) stop was right outside the hotel. The city has good bus service which really helped.

take the blue route bus and pick a resturant off of the riverwalk - the food is much better.
