BMT Graduation

The location is great for families looking to visit graduating Airmen. It's located directly off base and right where you want to be! I had an issue with the door latch when we first got there, but maintenance was quick to respond. Overall, a great place to stay for the price!

smelly room full of bugs

As soon as i stepped in smell of the room was not so pleasant. Found 3 bugs at sight and 4th one was on ceiling up above vanity. Requested refund through front office and told us that manager will give refund in the morning. Talked to manager on following business day and manager referred me to obz. Not just a bad room but bad customer service in general. Had to run around san antonio to find a room which took 3 hours. It had to be one of not pleasant experience of all.

Not the best place to stay

Room was dirty and dingy. And the lights in bathroom didnt work and couldnt be fixed. And because it was windy outside there was a ceiling tile that kept popping up. The guy at the desk tried to help, but since I was checking out in 6 hours I didnt want the hassle of changing rooms. Does look like at one point it was a nice place

the only positive was proximity to lackland

Building is in severe disrepair. Evident exterior hazards from falling down/loose molding and trim to rusted through support pole on stairwell. Rooms were moderatly clean. Mold on walls obvious ceiling/roof leaks galore, blood stain on carpet, broken, cracked and loose tiles galore. Toilet wobbled. If the county were to inspect this facility it would be shut down or condemned due to evident code violations. Pool was clean, hot tub was lukewarm ar best. Service staff was pleasant but there are serious language barriers. The only plus was that we could see our airmans dorms from this location and base acess was a snap.
