Awesome short weekend stay

Nice, clean hotel. Not too far from the Riverwalk and The Alamo. The staff at the front desk was very attentive and so courteous made me feel so welcome. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel has Starbucks in the lobby, which is so convenient. Municipal courts are facing hotel, kind of noisy, but overall, a nice hotel.

Christmas trip

The hotel location should have included a note that it backed up to the courthouse/bail bonds area. Didn't feel comfortable walking anywhere from the hotel. $10.00/day for parking was extreme considering price for the room and location of hotel. Atmosphere was noisy, other guests could be heard down hallway and other rooms from inside out room. The only positive was the van driver, Fernando. He was excellent. I would not chose to stay here again.

Christmas trip

This hotel did not meet my expectations. First was the location. Had I known it was located by the courthouse/bail bonds, I would have made other plans. The $10.00 parking rate was ridiculous considering the location and price of the hotel. I had some unplanned downtime in my room and was shocked to see the lack of variety in the channel selection. The curtains did not pull together at night to block the sun in the morning. The sound level from outside the hotel and in the hallways could be heard inside the room. The cleaning service arrived at 430-530 in the afternoon. A little late. The only high note was the van driver, Fernando , he was excellent. I would not stay at this hotel again

always comfortable

This is one of my favorite places when it comes to choosing quality. You are in the middle of everything, you have a good service, good breakfast and very comfortable nights. So no more to add, this will be one of my continuos choices everytime I go back to this place.

Great deal! Close to downtown

We got an amazing deal on this hotel for a quick weekend getaway. The location is great; it is not on the riverwalk but the hotel offers a free trolley so you do not have drive. The room was comfortable and clean. There is no central air and was a bit muggy with the window unit but overall a great deal and nice hotel!

Good, but not great

Room smelled stale and the shower was poorly designed (when you take a shower, water was everywhere). Other than than - it was okay. Only value customers got FREE breakfast... Trolley brought us to the River Walk, but never picked us up (we had to walk back about a mile - no biggie).

very pleasant stay

Our experience was a very pleasant one, since the hotel has a fantastic location close to the river walk, the staff is very nice and the room comfort is great specially with the nice pillows! We would definitely stay here again.
