Nice stay in San Antonio

The Red Roof Downtown San Antonio is well located not far from the Alamo and the Riverwalk. Unfortunately the room was not very clean and the cleaning personnel rather grumpy. The breakfast was poor.

Good Deal

The hotel was fine. Nothing special, but nothing bad. Location was great. Only 4 - 5 blocks from the Riverwalk and Alamo. We stayed here for the convenient location and we got what we wanted. Basic hotel room, but good price for the location.

A nice update

I've stayed at this location before and the refresh is quite nice. The big hairballs in the bathroom and the cleaning supplies left in the room were not, however. The staff is competent, but not exactly welcoming nor friendly. I wonder if they recruit from the DMV? The new $10/day parking fee is annoying as is the added charge for the room safe you must ask to have removed upon departure. Petty, yes, but so is the charge and the policies around it.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

It's about a 15-20 min walk west from the Alamo and another 10 min to the Riverwalk. It's reasonably located and the overpass under which one must walk is well-lit. Stay to the north sidewalk since the south side is usually populated with homeless camping out for the night. The police roust them during the day, but they're back by 9pm.

Very poor hotel

Check-in strictly enforced. We arrived at 2PM. They could have easily given us our room and gotten us out of the lobby. At 3Pm they "open the check in desk" and everyone waiting cues up. I'll give them credit for keeping track of who came in first, so they called us up to head the line. When we got into the room i found lavatory faucet loose. Then discovered that they had installed a regular toilet seat on an elongated toilet. It worked but very tacky. The rooms are very noisy. HIghway traffic kept me awake both nights we were there until about 2AM. Walls are so thin that you could hear noise from 5 rooms away. The second day, upon returning to the hotel at 830PM, after a long day out, found the room was not made up. I had to go down to the desk and threaten to call the police since they denied there was a manager on duty to receive my complaint.

Great night away

The hotel was very convenient for downtown and the staff was very helpful. I've been there before and I hope to continue to be a returning customer to the hotel.
