Thought we were in a cheap motel

The experience was terrible from the start. The only access to the "resort" was thru what looked like the back door which stays locked at all times & no one was available when we arrived to let us in. Finally a cleaning lady who appeared to be on a smoke break saw us & decided to let us in using her access card. I guess if the check in desk wasn't on a different floor than the entry floor this wouldn't be a problem. Once we finally checked in & was shown to our room we discovered that the king bed studio we purchased online AND had a confirmation for was not the same room we were given. We were then told that room wasn't available because it must always be available for the person who owns it as a timeshare IN CASE they decide to come. So I'm dumbfounded as to why the room is even advertised then??? As compensation for the mix up we were given several discount coupons to local restaurants & theme parks. We were also supposed to be added on to a seminar for Saturday morning #which I was charged a $20 deposit for# where we get a $125 Visa card afterwards only to receive a call that morning to say there was no more room in the 9am session THEY signed us up for but we would be on standby for a later one that day... we never received that call. The room was not cleaned although we stayed two nights & when we asked for more towels after the first night, they were placed on the end table in the living area instead of in the bathroom. The room overall was subpar, I would rate it on the level of a motel or MAYBE a one star hotel. There was dirt & stains on the walls, caked-on dirt in every corner especially in the bathroom and water stains on the ceiling. I CAN NOT believe the Wyndham brand would put their name on an establishment such as this and I will NEVER stay at that location again.

Nice Stay, Great Location

I just got back from spending 4 nights in the WyndhamVR. I enjoyed my stay as the room was clean, in a great location, and the staff was very helpful. I especially liked having a small bedroom separate from the living/dining area. I would definitely stay here again. Now the minor negatives. The bed was harder than I liked (personal taste). The washer/dryer didn't dry. Lastly, I wasn't aware that the hotel was part of a time share chain, and I was a pitched a time share by one of the staff on the phone. Not a big deal, but kind of annoying. I had no problems with noise as some of the other reviewers complained. Overall I was very pleased with this hotel, and I would definitely stay here again.

Hidden Jewel

This little time share/hotel was lovely. I have stayed at many hotels in San Antonio but none matches the charm and authenticity of San Antonio like the Wyndham Riverside Suites. The staff upgraded our room to a riverview and it was beautiful. Not exactly on the river but within steps of the most populated area and restaurants on the river. If you get a chance, definitely chose this location- we will from now on.

Great way to stay together!

This is an older hotel with lots of character. The view out our windows over the Riverwalk with Christmas lights was fantastic! Parking is a walk and loading/unloading is on the street. It is a great place to stay!

To get to the restaurants, all you have to do is walk out the hotel and go down the stairs to the Riverwalk.

Wyndham at River Walk

It's not really a hotel. It's a time share. All of the rooms are 3 room efficiency type rooms. They're very clean and everything is there, but the hotel is very old. Furnature is old, the hallways are very narrow and very little offered in the way of condiments. A comfortable room, but not worth the big bucks they charge.
