Our Experience

Everyone at the hotel was friendly and helpful. The bed and pillows are extremely comfortable. We got dinner one night in the dining area and it was pretty good. They have free shuttle to the Riverwalk which is awesome. Once the shuttle drops you off everything you need or want is within walking distance.

Hotel is within walking distance to Market Square making it convenient for touring the area. The rooms were very clean as was the rest of the property. The staff was very friendly as well.

Good and bad experience

Plus: Less than a mile walk from the River Walk (with a free shuttle if you can't walk less than a mile). Minus: Room was half flooded because of a leaky A/C unit. Plus: They moved us to a new room. Minus: There is an unexpected charge on our credit card that the hotel still has not fixed for us. Overall: Probably worth it for the location and cost, but keep in mind you may run into some issues along the way.

Never Again

The staff was alright, the room temperature was great, but the rest was horrible. There was no microwave or refrigerator in the room. There is one microwave next to the vending machines that was dirty. The pool was dirty every day. We stayed 4 nights and they only changed the sheets once. Holiday Inn used to have breakfast....no more. There is a restaurant/bar inside, but never went. There was also mold in the hotel room above the bed and in the bathroom. The parking is a bit crowded too. The best thing was the Riverwalk was within the distance to be picked up or driven to from the hotel.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Have the hotel drive you to the Riverwalk and short distances, you can't find free parking any where and the closer you get to the Riverwalk the more it costs. The River Center Mall has a parking garage right next to it, near the front. I didn't know it was there and we walk for about 18 minutes to get there. Plus, I'm from a dry heat the humidity was unbearable...take shorts.

Not impressed

We were passing through San Antonio for one night and planned to take kids to river walk. We chose this hotel to save some money since it wasn't on river but they offered shuttle so we would have easy access. I saw it had shuttle info but I actually called to verify with hotel because with 2 very small children, walking was out of the question. By the time you pay for parking/taxi you could have just stayed on river walk. Anyway, I was given hours for shuttle 3-9pm. Well at check in I asked how to contact shuttle and was told it isn't available on Sundays. Well that would have been helpful info!! Our other issue was cleanliness. Room wasn't impressive but worst part was the toilet. Toilet seat was covered in urine spatter. So gross!
