Holiday Inn Express & Suites San Antonio-Dtwn Market Area

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Good location, plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 kids, breakfast was delicious!

free parking, supper spacious, clean, modern rooms, nice pool, everything you need and right on edge of downtown. A walk to Mercado Market, easy access to freeways for travel. Simple but adequate. No scenery but functional spot. and affordable!!! Did find one dead, belly up Cockroach, heh, can't complain.

Need a shuttle we spend over $200 more for cabs!!

We went to a party to SA in the night we arrived there was no parking and unsafe leave my car

The hotel is being renovated. When we went the 2nd floor and a part of lobby was still under construction. But, hotel staff is really friendly. Breakfast was really good. The rooms are huge. Living room, bedroom and small kitchen area. Really spacious. Had little problem with the bathtub plumbing. Overall the stay was really pleasant. Just a mile away from river walk.

Great location Clean and good service event thou when we visited they were doing the construction...Will stay again next time.

Location was great and we were able to walk to downtown San Antonio within minutes. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Clean and comfortable room. Would definitely recommend!

It was just decent. I only stayed for one night, so I did not get the full experience. The breakfast is just your average hotel spread, nothing fancy.

The Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites is now a familiar home away from home for yours truly. The rooms are clean, and the free wi-fi helps me feel at home. The free breakfast gets me on the right foot for the day. Overall, you can't beat the value. Other hotel chains charge for internet and parking. Not so here! HIE Rocks!!!

Hair in my coffee, wash cloths, different color yellow spots on towels, heater doesn't work, continental breakfast was placed for 10 people-yet 40 were waiting in line for cereal and a muffin. There's NO room service. Mold in the bathroom walls. But cheap.

We decided to do a weekend getaway before school starts back and took a 4 1/2 hour drive to enjoy the river-walk and market area. The hotel was easy to find and close to everything we planned on doing. When we arrived our rooms were ready, no waiting. Our rooms were very clean, fresh smelling and very comfortable. The people at the hotel and surrounding businesses were very friendly and helpful when trying to find places. I will most definitely stay again and recommend this hotel, we enjoyed our stay and enjoyed the peace and quiet we had in our rooms. Good Job Holiday Inn Express!

Great value. Clean hotel and friendly helpful staff. Great breakfast every morning. Short walk to Marketplace and easy walk to trolly to get downtown. Easy 10 minute drive to Lackland, 15 minutes to airport and 5 minute drive to downtown.

Staff is wonderful, especially the girls serving breakfast, they made sure everyone was taken care of. Rooms very nice & clean. Location ok, not much for restaurants nearby, also a shuttle would be nice since cabs are expensive in San Antonio. Overall nice place to stay

Our staff was great! Even though they were working on a new floor, the staff was great and very accommodating!

4.5 out of 5 for a hotel this type. great customer service.

Yes, a little farther to the Riverwalk, but this hotel is great for what you pay for. Nothing fancy. Does the job. Parking is available for free. Easy access to I-10 and 35.

Clean, extremely helpful staff all the time, $6. To $7 cab fare ride to Riverwalk. We rented a car because we had to get to Lackland AFB which is only about a 20 minute drive. Easy on easy off highway. Free parking and continental breakfast was big factor in selecting this hotel. I would definitely stay here again. It filled all our needs. The signs in San Antonio really are a bit confusing. If you bring a GPS make sure it is updated the names of roads have changed and that can get you really confused and turned around. The highways are not very user friendly.

it was fairly easy getting too the staff was very nice an informed, breakfast was breakfast could have had more fruit and selections of hot items. overall we wernt let down thats why we continue to use holiday inn express

We truly enjoyed our stay - the room was huge - bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was good. Extremely quiet (other than some highway noise which wasn't loud enough to bother us or keep us awake!). Easy to find, and within driving distance to everything, although as other reviewers have indicated it's a little far to walk to downtown. Highly recommend - will stay again!

If you are not afraid to walk about a mile and you are on the budget, this hotel will suit you fine. You can walk to the riwarwalk downtown in no time. The hotel itself is very nice, clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly, breakfast are OK.
