La Quinta on Military Drive is located close to the gates of Lackland AFB. Not the typical continental breakfast as they served Waffles made hot on the spot. Wireless iNternet is a plus. The room was spacious, beds were comfortable, and the photographs of cacti zoomed in were pleasing to look at.

BMT Graduation

At end of base fence...very close, very nice. R. turn out of hotel takes you to base gates. Stayed in 2nd bldg. As quite as any hotel room near major hyway. Small pool but didn't go to swim. Nice breakfast. Friendly Helpful staff, with good language skills. Room clean, Shower small but plenty of room for its purpose. Room plenty large, King bed, comfortable for a hotel bed. Air unit, plenty cold. Good Hotel for convience and price for Lackland AFB activities.

Perfect for Lackland AFB visit

It was the closest hotel to Lackland AFB. At times it was a little hard getting out of the property due to a busy street. Also would recommend you get the pool side, as it is away from the traffic. Some of my family stayed on the street side and it was very noisy for them. Our side was quiet.

stay

This hotel was nice and they took very good care of us. They could use more seating for breakfast. They obviously know that their main patrons are for the military. Could use more elecrtical outlets for laptops and cell recharge. Pool was nice and clean with ample amount of towels. Staff was extremely helpful and nice. Overall a very pleasent experience.

The only thing close is the Air Force Base, which is why we were there. Some convience stores and small mall close. Very easy to get to all other attractions in the area.

Easy access to Lackland AFB & Sea World

We were in S.A. for a graduation from basic training. The AFB was in walking distance from this hotel. We also were not too far from Sea World. We commuted into downtown S.A. easily & we liked that this hotel was out of town so to speak. There were not alot of dining options around & that was about the only bad thing about this location. It was clean,quiet,and fine for this kind of trip. It's nothing fancy. It has continental breakfast, a pool, and friendly staff. It was a good value & for a family of 4 the room was fine. We had an enjoyable stay & would likely stay there again.

Check out the Air Force planes on display at the base. You can get a visitors pass & walk around the base. My kids,husband, and I alike were amazed at the planes & took some great pictures! How often do you get a chance to touch a fighter plane?? You have to check them out!!

Wonderful

The room is not fancy but was clean and neat. We only had time to sleep and bath as the AF keeps you busy. But it was perfect for our needs. Very easy to find and just moments from the AF base. Id stay there agin if I had to. Good price and very comfortable.

Go to the River Walk in San Antonio. Take the bus from AFB. Get tickets for boat ride of River Walk at base. Go early in the morning as it gets very crowded in the afternoon. Then walk it. You save buying tickets AFB.

Great location

Our son graduated AF BMT March 11th and we were pleased how close the La Quinta was to the base. We had 5 rooms and all were clean and comfortable during our 4 day stay. The early morning breakfast was good, plentiful, well stocked and appreciated.

Use your cell phone/ car GPS to find the best route for dining options. Also download to your cell phone the application [@] to find restaurant seating and make reservations enroute, very cool app.
