BMT Graduation

We stayed here for our daughter's graduation from BMT. From the moment we checked in, every staff member we encountered was friendly, courteous and willing to offer assistance. They were knowledgeable about the graduation, directions to the base and specifically offered breakfast starting at 5am on the days that families need to be heading to the base bright and early. I would especially recommend this hotel if you are attending BMT graduation ceremonies at Lackland AFB. You really can hear Taps played at night!

USAF BMT Graduation

This hotel is an excellent place to stay if you want to be near Lackland but not on base. Even on a very heavy traffic day it was very quick from here to BMT Graduation. I would have rated the amenities higher but the poor breakfast selections did not permit that. The hotel is showing its' age but it is clean.

Mixed review

I was a late arrival after midnight. The room that I was given was all the way in the back where I had to walk along two buildings and across a bridge. The room smelled of dog and over all was disgusting. I asked to move and was given a room in the first building. It still had a smell but was not as offensive.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

This was very close to Lackland AFB. Only $5 by shuttle to get on base or a very short drive. For that it was acceptable.

Close to Lackland AFB

The hotel was close to the base. It had a nice pool the staff were very nice. The bed was extremely comfortable. They really didn't do a good job cleaning. We had to go to the desk as well as talk to the house keeper.

Ick and Ugh

More like a bad motel 6. Not like new la quintas. Dirty bath with hair everywhere. Wet carpet. Old walls. Not worth $100. Better to pay $40-50 more per night than trying to remember the date of your last tetanus shot.

Perfect for BMT Graduation.

This was very close to the AFB and made going back and forth so convenient. Very clean and beds were comfortable. Nothing fancy, just showers in our rooms for instance but it was great for our purposes! Staff helpful and breakfast decent.

Good choice for Lackland AFB families.

Close for families visiting their Airmen graduating from Basic Military Training. The rooms were very clean.The beds were very comfortable, and the water pressure for the shower was good also. The staff were very polite and attentive to our needs, and the hotel was easy to find. I would stay here again. One negative was our room was next to the fitness/ laundry room, and was noisy at times. Check out the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema for a dining and movie experience with your Airman.
