Pros and cons

Was in town to see my son graduate from Air Force basic military training at Lackland AFB. The Antonian was a decent hotel with spacious clean rooms. Was close to the downtown attractions but was also in a rather "seedy" part of town, too. Overall, my stay was pleasant. David

Bad Choice

This was one of the worst hotel experiences we have had in a long time. We had no hot water from day one. We let the front desk know every day, and it was never fixed. The first full day there, our room was not made; however, we did receive a note from housekeeping saying sorry, they had run out of towels. Didn't bother to take out the trash nor make the beds. The second day there, we had gone out early and come back to our room at 4:45pm to rest before going back out for the evening. Housekeeping had not made it to our room - they were still 3 doors down. Around 5pm, we had to leave our room, so they could "straighten" the room. Same issues. This hotel has a good location; however, it is NOT worth the aggravation! Heed the warning at the front desk to check your room thoroughly before checking in, they will not fix problems that arise once you have checked in.

Misleading

We got to the hotel and they could not find our reservation..finally found it an hour later..the pool was not heated, there was not a work out room as described online, the breakfast buffet was limited to 1 plate per person with very small portions, there was nowhere to sit and eat as a family in the lobby for breakfast, the food was cold, they ran out of coffee, the halls smelled like smoke. My husband said we will not be back even if it is free..

Not all that

I would not recommend this hotel at all. The pool was not heated like the web site stated. The hotel allowed dogs. The hallway smelled like dirty dogs. There was no plug for the bath tub, so we could not take a relaxing bath.It did have great hot breakfast.

Dining tip: In Hotel

If you retire to the hotel early, you should definately order from the delivery menus that the hotel provides in your rooms. We ordered from the Simple Chinese resteraunt, the food arrived fast, hot, and it was delecious!! I wanted to eat in every day.

Don't book this hotel

Worst Hotel ever. The breakfast facilities were filthy and basicily none excistent. A box of donuts would have been better. You had to stand in line for ever while the staff cooked pancakes one pancake at a time. Which still was raw on the inside.You could not get to the juice or milk or toast the way the Hotel had set up the breakfast.Would never go back.

Did not meet expectations

At first they could not find our reservation. Then they told me I was there on the wrong day. [...] I needed a handicapped room for my mom and they gave us a hearing impaired room. Since there were no grab bars in the bathroom they gave us a shower chair, very unsafe! [...]

No receipt for the bill received

My name is Phil Mueller, not Natalie. Also, I did not receive my receipt for my stay[...]. And, the person at the hotel desk would not give me a receipt. This is a real problem. Please rectify this. Send my receipt. Thank You
