very bad stay

we arived at the Hotel on sat 20 Oct and we were not greeted with very much curtesy. The Front desk staff was very rude and very slow at getting us checked in. When we got to our rooms they reeked horribly of bleach and were not in the best condition for the price of the rooms. We have stayed at cheaper hotels that had much better service and cleaner rooms. I would not recommend this hotel to my worst enemy. one of our rooms the toilet seat feel off and the wash sink faucet wasnt even attached to the sink. definately my worst stay ever in San Antonio. We couldnt even enjoy the pool as it was green and very dirty looking. The sheets had cigarett burns in them and the safety lock for the door wasnt even properly attached to the door for safety measures.

Great weekend getaway!

Our suite was ready right away when checking in! Pleasant service from front desk! Bed was very comfy! From the outside it looks like an old hotel but the inside is updated-- very nice and modern!

Not what we expected

Our family went on a San Antonio vacation. The only thing we did at out hotel was sleep. The room was smocking after we had booked non smoking, the carpets were wet, the fixtures on the ligh switches and the lamps were broken, the sheets were dirty and there were a few bugs. The pool had broken tables and chairs and the water was not clean. The tables around the pool were also ver dirty. It was not a great experience. The staff was unfriendly as well. The rooms were also very loud, you could hear everyone running around in the hall and talking.

Not horrible

My boyfriend had a basketball tournament so we just needed a place to rest up for the weekend. The hallways were kinda smelly and it was very hot walking into the room. The air condition didn't make the room cooler for about another 2 hours after we got in. I tried calling for more towels but no one answered, and I had been informed that a employee party was going on so I'm assuming that's why no one answered in the front.

Good Value, good location

Older facility kept clean with friendly staff. Quiet though just off the freeway. For out of town folk the Texas service road system takes a bit of getting used to. Just 5 minutes from $8 parking at convention center.
