Great location - great value

Visiting San Antonio to get away and relax. This was a great place to stay. Easy walk to all downtown venues and easy on/off highway access. The room was beautiful and perfect for our needs.

A fairly priced and good breakfast at the hotel that saves time when getting ready to enjoy a great day at the Riverwalk or other attractions. Otherwise the hotel does not offer on-site dining - this didn't prove problematic as the downtown area has so many dining options.

Surprise stay.

We went to San Antonio for the PRCA Rodeo and saw the sights during the day. The hotel was within walking distance of many sights and close to the freeway for out-of-town trips. Although it was near a railroad, I never heard a train in our first floor room. I liked the low-cost breakfast buffet and internet access. The only problem we had was the small parking area. When we came back at night, we had to park in a bus parking lot about 1/2 a block away. There was no charge, but it would have been inconvenient if raining or very cold.

Purchase the combo ticket for the Trolly tour, boat ride and Emax movie about the Alamo. It saves you money and taking the trolly tour first gives you the lay of the land. Watching the Alamo movie helps you to understand what really happened there.

Loved it!!!

This hotel was great! The entire property is very clean, and the rooms were much bigger than I expected. It included a king bed, love seat, reading chair, and a desk. I would definitely stay here again....Oh yeah...Its also in walking distance to the riverwalk and the clubs.
