Wonderful Experience

The room is pretty spacey and well-designed. It's close to San Macros Premium Outlets and San Antonio. See full review

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.

Shockingly dirty.

The staff was nice, even if they gave me the wrong directions. They didn't even know the exit number. Our first room was so nasty. The kitchen had dried food all over, moldy sponge (they should provide a fresh wrapped one every time), and there was debris and hair and trash all over the edges of the floors, especially the bathroom! The toilet handle even had dried peanut butter on it. The couch was nasty and stained and falling apart, the cushions didn't even cover the spring pull out bed. When I asked to change rooms they were accommodating, yet acted surprised that the room was dirty. When I talked to another hotel guest they stated that their room was very dirty also, and they too had switched rooms. Our second room was better, but still had nasty debris on bathroom floor, mold along the outside of the tub, and toothpaste spots all over the mirrors and walls. We also found a spider in the bed. There was no bathroom soap and no hair dryer as they stated there would be. Also, the couch was torn with the stuffing falling out. I am surprised that there are any good reviews on this hotel!! We will never come here again.

Don't spend the money to stay here!

Where to start? I paid above market for this hotel and got a much cheaper hotel. It is not 3 stars and lucky to be 2. Paper thin walls-you can hear everything, one bar of soap in the bathroom, staff who can't speak English, no accessories(I needed an extension cord - none available, I needed some milk for coffee-cafeteria all locked up!), false drawers on kitchenette cabinets, old tv's, cheap plastic knives and forks and plates for breakfast, staff vacuuming during breakfast, no newspapers, things not working and items needing to be fixed. The only decent thing was the bed which was comfortable, but a comfortable bed does not make a 3 star hotel. Overpriced, and definitely would not stay here again. I suggest others avoid it too. Read the reviews about the noise from the freeway and train tracks nearby.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Inexpensive Mexican restaurant with large portions, and Cracker barrel within walking distance.
