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.

Check Your Sheets and Bed

Horrible stay experience, booked 3 rooms for 10 days, two rooms had money and items mysteriously disappear which seemingly all staff said manager has to be the one we talk to which is never there. One room was canceled and moved to another after staff went and checked bed to confirm it was bedbugs or ticks and sure enough they pulled out both beds and moved my guys to another room. No compensation just a tube of oinment for one of my guys that got was bit by those bugs for about a week after we ruled out mosquitos. Breakfast was ehh, ac was cold, ice machines broken, parking horrible. Never returning to that hotel.

Comfortable Rooms, great Customer Service

For the price, it was a decent hotel. The room was fairly clean, however a few times we didn't get shampoo, the guest services button didn't work on the phone, just little things. One day, she left her cleaning supplies, but I guess that at least means she used them! I've stayed at Ramada before and this hotel was not as nice as most of them I've stayed at. No elevators if you're handicapped. The hotel pool is okay, but it's across from the drive-in at a fast food place, so the whole time you're in the pool, you can hear people ordering food. The breakfast was okay. I'm usually okay with continental, but it was marketed as more. The "More" was manufactured egg circles and biscuits in a heated pan. Slightly disappointing. On the positive side, plenty of fast food places you can walk to, and it's located right off of Rt. 410, so easy access to downtown and Seaworld, though a little confusing to get to Lackland-- take the Valley Hi exit. There was a gentleman that checked us in and worked evenings (2nd shift). He was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. I wish I could remember his name, because his customer service took this from a 1 star hotel to 2 stars on customer service alone.

Take the Valley Hi exit, Exit 4 to get to the military base and bring a case of bottled water, the machine only has soda.
