Very comforting and pleasant stay,, I would definitely recommend to friends

First, the key cards did not work and they took a while to make them work. Carpet next to the beds was sticky. Next morning my wife woke up with 11 BED BUG BITES. If the room was refundable, we would have moved to a different hotel. So, the best we could do was ask for a different room. The new room fortunately did not have bed bugs. However, it had 4 A/C compressors just outside the window. Their noise kept us from getting decent sleep. Next morning, we had to buy ear plugs to make stay for the next 5 days manageable. At breakfast, the last morning, all the milk cartons had gone sour. I had a few spoonfuls with my cereal before I realized it and I was worried about getting food poisoning on top of all the other disasters. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. With the "Holiday Inn" brand, I expected better.

Orders King Room and got 2 queens. Also floors. Walls thin. Kids in room above us were loud. Woke us up at 7am Sat am. Very annoying

We were in need of a last minute hotel because other plans fell through, it was an excellent price for a friday! staff was nice, it was exactly what we needed to be able to stay one more night. breakfast was delicious as always! a little sad that they didn't have cranberry juice-it's my favorite! the only thing I noticed was that there was a smell near the elevators, not sure if it was from a nearby room or the pool or what. otherwise excellent and we'd stay again if we are in that area!

The hotel lobby was very nice and comfortable, but the room could have used a bit more care and cleaning. When I went to my room the first time, I noticed hairs on the side of the bathtub that hadn't been cleaned. The mattress and pillows were way to soft. The mattress was so bad that I couldn't turn over. It was like sleeping on a bean bag. Also, the free WiFi never worked. The desk person told me that they were working on adding another router which should fix the problem in the future. The only good think about this hotel was the free daily continental breakfast and the extra friendly staff.

Friendly staff, no problems. There was kinda a musty smell all 3 days in the hall way.

it was pleasure to stay in this hotel Ireally enjoied

You can't go wrong if you stay here. Friendly staff, free wifi, super clean rooms and good breakfast.

Was there for the USAF graduation. About 15 minutes to Lackland AFB The rooms and hotel was very clean, beds were very comfortable, staff was friendly

The rooms were absolutely clean. The entire staff was friendly. The breakfast area was kept supplied and clean. That last was difficult because of several large family groups. But they did it. They even kept the coffee hot and never ran out.

Enjoyed the night. Very quiet. Since it was spring break and I was alone, staff put me on top floor so the spring breakers wouldn't keep me up.

Very convenient to Sea World, NW Vista College and UTSA. Hotel staff was friendly and check in was a breeze.

The staff was very nice. They were always willing to help. Sometimes the dinning area was too crowded and there weren't enough tables or chairs, but other than that we had a good time.

good the doors are very loud closing and woke us up very early in the morning

It was very good, we will be back. Everything was clean and breakfast was great!

Everything was great! No complaints at all. Breakfast room a little crowded but food kept being refilled in a timely manner.

Goiod location on 1604 loop around San Antonio. Rooms were clean and nice. Breakfast was simple and good.

Was a nice relaxing stay at the Holiday Inn. The breakfast was good and they had delicious coffee. the only complaint I had was I checked in a little early and the room they sent me up to was not ready. So they put me in a different room that was right next to the elevator. It wasn't too noisy during the night but during the day there was a lot of commotion. Other than that it was a good experience

The hotel was comfortable. The bed was a little to soft. The continental breakfast was good. The only complaint I have is when I checked in it was a little early and the room they sent me up to was not cleaned yet so the room they gave me instead was right by the elevator. It was just a little noisy at times. I came to San Antonio to visit my boyfriend who is in school at Lackland. The hotel was about a twenty minute drive from the base. It was a little further than I thought it would be. Overall it was a nice relaxing stay at the Holiday Inn.

The room was clean, the staff was nice and the pool was clean. The hotel sits right on the loop and getting on and off to go to our destinations was easy. There is a Sonic practically in the parking lot (with the friendliest workers I've ever encountered at a fast food place) and a restaurant right next door (Texas Two Step, I think it was called). I would recommend the fried pickles for a starter; they were awesome! The hotel breakfast was better than I've had at other places I've stayed. We had no problems at all and would stay there again. Tip: Being that it is a new hotel, it didn't show up on my TomTom. If you have that issue and don't want to upgrade, just put in Braun Pt and it'll take you to the shopping center next door :)
