Good service, bad matress!

Overall the stay was great. Clean room and great shower. Breakfast was awesome, loved the eggs. That bed, though, was awful, like sleeping on the floor- too hard!! And we were expecting free parking. Upon arrival, we were told parking comes with a fee of $14 per night. For this area it's a reasonable fee but not when you're expecting free. So bring a thick mattress pad or even an inflatable mattress.

PAY TO PARK??

Let me start by saying the Hotel is spotless clean! The room was very nice and comfortable. It is a block and a half from the Riverwalk and about 4 blocks from the Alamo so the location is great. Now for the bad. They charge $15.00 a day to park your car and call it an Amenity. That is bad enough but the parking lot is small and on the second day it was full and we were told there was another lot a block away and we could park there and yes we would still be charged the $15. The bed was hard as a rock (which is a personal complaint) breakfast was somewhat lacking to be polite for the level of hotel it was but to end on a positive note the staff was excellent.

Could have been better

Noise and staff helpfulness keep this hotel from getting high marks. We asked to be moved to a different room, didn't happen. Our remote didn't work, took a day to get a new one. Chain on toilet flusher kept coming loose, never got it fixed. They sent maintenance to our room once but we were napping and had "quiet please" sign in key card scanner and when we didn't answer the knock on the door they tried to get in anyway. Good thing we had the door locked!!!!!! Walls are very thin and floors squeak when the people in the room over you walk across the room.

Great vacation

Leisure trip with family to San Antonio. Hotel staff very helpful/friendly. Excellent breakfast options daily. Would recommend better lighting in rooms (need all 6 lamps/fixtures on at night.) Took in Alamo, Riverwalk, Zoo, PRCA Rodeo. Enjoyed the sights, food and culture. Biggest challenge was figuring out the transportation system (bus routes.) Drivers were always helpful.

Concert weekend

The hotel was the perfect location for concert in the Alamodome. Everything was in walking distance. We did not have to worry about finding parking to the concert, to the restaurant, and to the church for mass. The staff was very courteous and helpful, and always had a warm smile.

Clean and Convenient

Very pleased. We had a good experience at this hotel in the past and chose to visit again - this time with friends. The hotel lived up to our expectations once again. We especially enjoy availability of full breakfast.

Nice place to stay

Hotel was a nice place to stay. King room was very comfortable and only complaint would be it was illuminated entirely by lamps and not all that well at night. I would question calling this hotel as being river-walk as it was on the other side of the freeway (still in walking distance I guess) and closer to the alamodome.
