Value for money

It's nowhere near the center of San Antonio but we had a car so that was fine. It was easy to find and a really easy drive to all the shopping malls etc. THe room had a couch area with a TV, a bathroom and kitchen and fridge which was really useful and a really comfy double bed. The staff were lovely too! The hotel was great value for money.

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.

Best hotel we've been to in a long time.

Very happy with the location, price, and cleanliness of the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I have been in some very bad hotels and this was one of the best for a reasonable price. The location was perfect for going downtown to the Riverwalk or going out of town to Austin.

Very famil friendly

The Hawthorne hotel was everything we hoped for, the rooms were very clean and comfortable. I loved the way the rooms were set up, and the staff were very friendly. I'm looking forward to another stay at the Hawthorne hotel.

Great Value

The Hawthorn Suites represents an outstanding value and offers easy access to San Antonio attractions. The rooms were larger than average; the common area was roomy and clean; and the service staff was very friendly.
