My first day I didn't have clean towels and my room wasn't clean

Had a very comfortable night. Maybe it is not a 5 star hotel, but we really rested well. And also happy that our money rested well too :D Excellent price and good service, delicious breakfast. very good hotel! I think it was a great decision to stay there.

The entrance looks good but then when I walked into my Non smoking room it smelt like smoke. Opened the door to the bathroom to find a dead roach. Figured it might be because we were on the first floor right by the entrance and usually that would be a deal breaker for me but every other hotel was booked for Memorial Day weekend. Went to lay down on the bed and my pillow smelt like stale cigarettes it was so bad that I put my clean shirt on it so I could smell my laundry detergent instead of smoke. The next day I went to turn the actual on only to find blood spatter on the wall, I'm not talking a small drop of blood either it was a fair amount. The hotel staff were average but I will never stay there again. I slept fully clothes including a hoodie bc the room was so dirty. Yuck!!

Hotel was fine for a night but needs some updating. Choices for meals very limited. Staff was nice and room was clean.

My son and I only stayed for one night. This hotel is basically "You get what you pay for:" The staff was great, but the location was pretty terrible. It's less than a block away from a lovely gentlemen club and didn't feel all that safe. Single mom with my son, I made sure to carry my mace with me. Although no disruptions or conflicts, I personally felt a little uneasy. Overall good experience, but next time I would more than likely opt for a better location.

Ok, don't expect much. Housekeeping needs to pay closer attention to their job...good breakfast

Staff was polite and helpful. The fact that this is a pet friendly hotel is much of the reason I chose it, and for a 2 star hotel, it mostly met my expectations. The $20 pet fee raises the price quite a bit, but relevant to other options when you need to accommodate your pet, it is probably the most reasonable. Directions in google maps need to be updated for all of the Quality Inn hotels in San Antonio. Finding the hotel was a problem even with the specific address, because the specific address is not recognized by google maps. This Quality Inn is a tad less expensive than the one off of exit 162. i was staying in San Antonio to be near the SAMMC hospital, and this Quality Inn as a little farther than the other one, but close enough that I think it was worth the better price.

last minute trip, friendly staff when we arrived late that night. Rooms were decent although rug seemed a bit dirty

The staff was very friendly and courteous , the room was comfortable,,,but not very clean....I had a cock roach in my bathroom...a spider in the drapes...didn't appear as though the bath tub had been cleaned.....

I booked this hotel for it's convinient location near Cowboys Dancehall. We used it just for a place to sleep with little drive distance. Staff was not friendly or attentive, room was clean and comfortable, has a late check out which was good, car was safe, and apart from the spider that woke me up by crawling across my neck in the middle of the nigh, I have no true complaints.

There was not an electrical outlet in the bathroom. The bathtub surface was peeling you could see the porcelain below the powder coating spray. The hotel was at capacity and in the mornings there was no hot water. The iron did get very hot. The room was clean and up to date decor. I felt it was over priced for the quality. The morning breakfast area was very crowed. The area where you make your breakfast selection was too small for the amount of people trying to get in to prepare their breakfast.

When we checked in, I noticed there were only two other cars in the parking lot, one I'm assuming belonged to an employee. Turns out there may have been only 2 other rooms with guests. There was no central air, only one wall unit under a window. In San Antonio in August, air conditioning is my best friend. When we arrived the air was off so we had to wait 2 hours for it to cool down. It appeared no one had stayed in that room in quite some time as a spider seemed to have built himself a rather large nice home in the bathroom sink. The wrapped soap was yellowed with age. All in all, it wasn't bad. It was a bed to sleep in and the a/c did eventually get very very cold and cooled the entire room and bathroom. If you're looking for something high class, this isn't it, but if you just need somewhere to stay in a bind like I did, it was good enough.

When we arrived we were greated with a smile. Very professional staff. The location was right off the freeway. The hotel was clean, quiet and comfortable. We loved it and will return.

Room was just okay...nothing great! Bathroom was extremly small, not even a sink counter to put stuff on. No microwave in room as stated online. Swimming pool was a huge joke...way too small! Beds were hard and the pillows smelled funky. Continental breakfast was a big joke too! Stale pastries and toast, nothing much more...not even worth trying! This hotel was way overpriced compared to what other hotels in the area were and there were no extra perks to off set this. EXTREMLY DISSAPPOINTED!!

Not a 5 star hotel, but the staff was great and the place was clean and comfortable. Located right on the freeway with easy on/off access and everything you need within minutes.
