Last minute stay

We decided to spend the night last minute so a lot of hotels where either booked or too pricey for the time we planned on being there. Our room was small but decent for the price, staff was friendly and efficient. Restroom was small, shower felt tiny and smelled a little humid. Don't expect anything fancy. It served it's purpose for the few hrs we where there and the free morning breakfast was great. Good location.

Great Room

I would definitely stay here again. The only issue I had was it looked like someone spilled something on the wall that was missed. I am getting ready to book my room now!

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.

The place was understaffed, they had one person running the place I had made my reservation online and still has about an hour wait.

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.
