Comfortable home away from home

The room was bigger and had more than we originally thought! The sofa turned into a sofabed and there was a big refrigerator as well as a mini fridge, a hot plate, a dish drainer, utensils, microwave, toaster, and coffeepot. You really couldn't ask for more, especially if you're having an extended stay. Our curtain had a rip in the one layer, but the heavy dark one didn't so it still kept light out in the morning. They give out samples of Loreal hair products for shampoo an conditioner! That's the nicest hotel shampoo I've ever had and it came with an additional creme treatment that left my hair super soft! Beware of cockroaches outside! But the hotel doors meet the ground so they can't get in unless you let them and they're everywhere in Texas so it's not the hotel's fault. Seriously, they're everywhere at night.

Easy access

Obviously recently renovated. New paint, etc. pleasant staff. Hallway carpets need cleaned. Room was spacious. Sofa couch in living area was a bit uncomfortable. Would stay again for the price, staff, easy access on I35.

They can do better

The hotel was ok not perfect, the location its to far from the tourist area. The staff at the front desk was rude not at all costumer service the same thing with the staff in charge of the breakfast but the worst was the housekeeping for some unknown reason they took my shower curtin and did not put another one when i call the front desk the womenwho answear the phone was rude and told me to go and talk to the latina lady that she was on my floor. Worst staff ever! I could have paid $10 more qnd stay at a better hotel but i know that for next time i visit san antonio tx

Spacious room

The suite room is large with a comfortable bed, mini-kitchen, and a sitting area. Pans and utensils are provided so one can prepare a meal in the room. Breakfast is also provided by the hotel. The only minor inconveniences were adjusting the air conditioner vent, near ceiling on wall, so it did not blow air directly on us and having to frequently jiggle the toilet handle. This hotel is near train tracks and if you are sensitive to noise, the train whistle at night may bother you.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

There is a Mexican food near the hotel to walk or drive to which has good food. A short drive away is a restaurant that serves fish, including oysters, which is very good.

San Antonio trip

Staff very nice, free breakfast good. Value ok, will pay more for better Hotel & location next time in the area. Location not the greatest, surrounding neighborhood not the greatest to say the least. Lots of road construction going on in the area, lots of road workers staying in the hotel. Also tractor trailer parked in the parking lot & its refrigeration unit running all night. (LOUD) Disappointed overall.

Definitely Worth It

I was extremely impressed on how nice the hotel was. It wasn't expensive to stay there at all so I wasn't expecting the best quality of a room. However, it was like a mini apartment. We had a kitchen, living room, big bathroom, and big bedroom. I couldn't have been more happy.
