Ok Hotel for the Money, had ethics problem with Front Desk Clerk

Overall, nice, clean hotel, right near where I wanted to be. Good value for the money. Problem: I mistakenly booked a smoking room. I thought it was a mistake but apparently I did. I then asked for a nonsmoking room which they agreed to give me for $10.00 I thought ok no problem. She then told me ok rebooked me and said it was $40...$10 per night. Perhaps I shouldve known that but when she originally said $10 I thought that was all it was going to be. I then said no I don't want the nonsmoking room just give me the smoking room...I'll just tough it out. After an awkward silence she said I'm sorry but we don't have ANY SMOKING ROOMS AVAILABLE and that she would have to give me a non smoking room at no charge and then quickly changed her mind and said it would be $20.00 extra for the 4 nights. You can imagine my thoughts at this point. After holding back my true thoughts of the situation I just agreed and said just give me the room as I had flown all day, it was late and I had to get up in 6 hours. While the Hotel met my needs and I had no other issues if I go to San Antonio again, which is likely, I will not stay there because of their dishonesty

Airman's graduation stay

We arrived Ina Wednesday evening and checked out Saturday morning. The stay was mostly comfortable. There was a fire station directly across the street from our room (215) that had a few emergencies in the middle of the night while we were there. It will wake you up but, hey... your life ain't as bad as whoever called the fire department. The room was as clean as it could be. You can tell that it's been around for awhile and gets high traffic volumes. It's a little far from base (approx 10 miles) so be prepared to pay cab fare. It was an average of $30-35 each way. We were hoping for a place to have a drink near the hotel on Friday but nothing was in walking distance. There is however, a McDonald's, Wendy's, Bill Miller's (bbq chain that was cafeteria like), and a Denny's. The hotel offers a free breakfast with sausage links and Texas shaped waffles among other quick breakfast options. We didn't get to use the pool (it was rainy) but it looked nice and well kept. Truthfully, we so much on taxis while we were there, we could've probably stayed somewhere more pricey on the Riverwalk were everything (and I mean everything) is going on. Either way, we had a great time in San Antonio.

Average to slightly below...

Staff was friendly. Room was dated but basically clean. Nice towels. Free breakfast was average. Bed hard as a brick, which is ok for me but most folks would not like it. Hard to get in and out of parking lot during peak traffic but otherwise ok. Would recommend to a friend on a budget!

easy access to Lackland AFB

I was not aware that it was a motel not a hotel. It worked out much better then we expected, management was very pleasant.

Convenience

Front desk clerk was extremely helpful and pleasant. Property was clean and well maintained. Location was about 5 minuites from Lackland AFB, 10 minuites from Sea World and 15 minuites from downtown San Antonio, plus it is located on major highway with convenient GPS directions to anywhere. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would not hesitate to use this facility again.

Convienent location to Lackland AFB, Sea World and Riverwalk

The hotel is 1 block off the freeway. There are three restraunts in the parking lot and a Mexican seafood place across the street. Less than 15 minu7tes from Lackland AFB. 10 minutes from Sea World and about 20 minutes from the Riverwalk. The room was clean and housekeeping came every day. Breakfast was ok.

What happened in our room when we were gone...

Staff was very nice and accomodating. Really hard to get into the parking lot-there is NO easy way. What was disturbing was what happened on Saturday, 09/01/2012: we left the hotel to go to Lackland and then to Austin. Room was not serviced. I was told there was a "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door. We didnt put one on or see one. When I reached for a soda we had on the desk, I discovered someones reading glasses were there. They were not there before we had left in the morning. I immediately contacted Tony at the front desk, who was apologetic but not too concerned. Someone put a "DND" sign on my door and was in my room-I am SO not comfortable with this. Thank goodness we took anything of value with us, but that still does not remove the fact that someone was IN my room going through MY things. I honestly will not be staying there on our next trip to San Antonio, which I might add will be soon along with the 2 other parties that came with us. Sorry, my wife and I were creeped out.

*STAY SOMEPLACE ELSE*

This is the kind of hotel you stay at when you do not have any other options. The start we checked in at around 3pm, the desk clerk left us standing at the desk to take a personal call. Without going into a lot of detail, I was a little uncomfortable listening to the call. The room was dirty and had a old moldy smell. I don’t think the room was cleaned recently, the bathroom had hair in the tub and sticking to the wall. This was not a little hair, it looked like someone was shampooing a dog and the room was just left. There were holes in the walls behind the doors where the door knob when through (lack of wall stops). The beds were old and abused and the room furnishings did not match, it looked like the room was furnished with second hand office furniture. And the highlight of the hotel stay. The second entrance to the hotel is locked a night so your car is not stolen. The types of people walking around the facility let me to wonder if some of the rooms were rented by the hour. Again, stay someplace else unless this description sounds like your kind of place.
