Recent guest reviews

Great hotel staff, and nice clean rooms. Asked for a recommendation on a restaurant with good drinks and the shuttle driver recommended Rita's on the river great place.

My husband and I love staying at this hotel. Everything was great! Beds were so comfortable. The free breakfast was very good with a good variety of items to eat. All of the staff were so friendly. They have a hotel shuttle which is excellent. We prefer to just leave our car there and have the shuttle drop us off where we need to go in the downtown area. The driver was very friendly and helpful.

The hotel is very clean with lots of amenities. The pool is lovely. They keep lemonade out all afternoon for guests and the cleaning crew is very friendly. They have a full breakfast bar, not just pastries.

I truly enjoyed my stay here this weekend. We had a total of 5 in our suite. The suite was spacious and great for the 3 adults and 2 children. This hotel is in a great location to get to everything downtown...just minutes away. The staff was very friendly and breakfast was great!

Hotel stay was great, loved the free breakfast and parking. Was only a short pleasant 10-15 minute walk to the Riverwalk and about a 20 minute walk to the Market square. Hotel staff was very polite and eager to please. If you don't want to walk to Riverwalk, the hotel offers a shuttle service upon request. Hotel was clean and family friendly, Had a great stay!

The rest of the hotel industry should take lessons on customer service from the hotel staff at Holiday Inn Express & Suites San Antonio Rivercenter. Talk about 5 star service! They were super accommodating, helpful, friendly. They have a shuttle van that takes you downtown. I didn't even need my rental car! The location is perfect. My room was clean and comfortable. I slept like a baby. I wish every hotel stay was as smooth and comfortable as my stay at this location.

The hotel and staff were great and the hotel shuttle service was a nice touch.

Great place to stay centrally located with a great complimentary breakfast and shuttle services to the most popular attractions around the area which is a great plus the staff was magnificent and attention to detail of all your needs I will highly recommend this place and will be back.

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Location was good with free shuttle service to local attractions. However, the shuttle vans weren't labeled. This made it hard to know who was picking you up. The room was very clean and spacious. Felt like a little apartment. Breakfast was a hit. Lots of choices and tasted great!

We had a nice time here. We had a king suite and it was very clean, seemed to be renovated, and quite a lot of room for us. The bed was very comfortable. The pool was also clean and well-maintained. The shuttle service was convenient although they took a half hour to pick us up after we called and that was in the pouring rain that we had to wait. Other than that we were satisfied.

The free shuttle to the river walk and convention center was great!

The hotel is only a 15 minute walk to the Riverwalk area and Alamodome plus there is a free shuttle that will drop you off at various locations throughout the city. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was accommodating and friendly. The free breakfast is AMAZING- it's not your typical continental breakfast but has both warm and cold options. Overall, I would definitely stay here again. You can't beat the price and you are just minutes from the heart of San Antonio!

This hotel was wonderful! It was the perfect location from the Alamodome and the river walk. They also had a shuttle that took us to the river walk and would pick us up also! The staff was very helpful and nice.

Clean and Friendly! Great time. Enjoyed our stay. Close to everything. It was a perfect place.

Place was nice would have be better if advise that they were remodoing. The rooms and hallways smilled like paint. would have been great to have know before i had booked the room. with an infant child the smells can be harmfull.

The staff was very helpful and their shuttle service was the best. Great location if traveling by Amtrak. The hotel is under remodeling and the only drawback to this was the swimming pool was also under reconstruction. The kids were disappointed by that. The breakfast was very good with a good variety for everyone.

This was a one night stay on our trip to Kingsville. We utilized the complimentary shuttle service to the River Walk; and my husband went to the Spurs game, so we were super close to that arena too! My kids enjoyed the pool and I was pleasantly surprised at the variety on the breakfast buffet (the same hotel in Kingsville didn't have flavored coffee creamers or chocolate milk like this one did :) ). Sounds silly, but I've stayed at nicer, more expensive hotels that offered worse breakfasts and service - and when you have toddlers, the variety is a perk! The hotel was being remodeled at the time; however, didn't bother us a bit. Janie at the front desk was super helpful and professional! The young lady at checkout gave us a bag of bottled water for our trip! My only complaint per se would be the walking space between the bed and desk. It appeared tight, but not a biggie for a one night stay for this family of four.

The hotel is not in a good area. They were remodeling so the elevator was filthy and smelly. They did offer a shuttle downtown which was nice. There was construction stuff at various places which made us feel uncomfortable.

Everything that the hotel had control over was great. The staff was friendly, accommodating, had a free shuttle to downtown, river walk, convention center, Alamo areas. We stayed last year and I forgot to request a room on the parking lot side. We had a ground floor room and the road noise was quite loud all night. The hotel is doing some major remodeling so you SEE that when you get there, but we never heard any noise from it, though we left early in the day. We'll keep staying there, the construction will be over soon and we'll remember to request a room away from the street next time.

Away from crowds. We didn't mind walking to River Walk along the busy road. Close to Alamodome. You will have to go into town for lunch/dinner but there is free shuttle service! A nice choice for my 18 year old son and I.
