Howard Johnson Inn And Suites Central San Antonio

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The outside seemed a little creepy. There were steel gates on both ends of the parking lot. The good thing was it kept bad people out. Down side is that you had to ask the receptionist to open the gate to let you out and back in after 10 pm.

Overall, it was a good experience. Loved the wheelchair accessible shower. Beds were comfortable. However, the breakfast was one of the worst we've ever had at a hotel. Orange juice was an orange drink rather than juice, waffle maker over cooked and eggs were bland. If breakfast isn't important, this would be a good choice.

Breakfast, wifi, microwave, fridge was appreciated

Receptionist was great. But the room was terrible. 3 of Every size towels except washcloth. Regular light bulb in bathroom we're Heat bulb supposed to be. Coffee maker was dirty and microwave had particles of food and food splatter inside

You truly get a great value with this hotel. Most of the staff members were very friendly, accommodating and pleasant. The quality of the room was very good.

Older motel with a lot of ugly repairs . I don't think Orbitz should have this motel on their web site !

The room was average the furniture is old needs cleaning perhaps replacing.

Front desk staff was terrific. Property in terrible condition. Pool/hot tub water was green! Carpet in room is filthy. Window sheers torn up, door would not self- close, vent in bathroom broken, dangerous light switch, cops were there twice during our 3 day stay. Pre-paid for 3 days with no refund available or we would have gone to another hotel. If the price is to good to be true...

It was ok for the price and I got a promo deal. It was not what I thought I was getting. The pictures were very misleading. The staff was friendly, the breakfast was ok but not great. Very outdated and one hall smelled like cigarette smoke.

The hotel was very clean, the staff was extremely pleasant and the grounds were very well maintained. Given the area of town I was a little concerned but as soon as I walked through the doors I was put at ease. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

This hotel is super easy to go to & from. It is located right on a on/off ramp. Check in was quick & painless. Parking was free & tree shaded. Our room was clean & pleasant. The pool is in the center of a beautiful courtyard. Every room opens onto this well manicured little park. Very well maintained. The sofa sleeper in our room was a little well-worn. There was no bedding for the sofa bed. We were too tired to deal with it, so we just used a sheet from the bed. It was very comfortable, just well worn. Breakfast was hot & hearty, but not well supervised. There is no attendant, so it is hit & miss if you get eggs, coffee, or batter for a waffle. They were good about refilling missing items if you asked, but to me, you shouldn't have to ask. Over all, I would recommend this place to my friends as a good place to lay my head.

There is really no excuse to let a building go to ruin such as the Howard Johnson in which I stayed. Even the sign of the hotel was broken. It was easy to miss this hotel because of it. True the rates are lower than other hotels but the parking lot was full so ... The hotel receptionist was lovely and efficient. My room door was so stuck I thought I was at the wrong door. The shower was moldy with broken tiles...handicapped accessible though. Air conditioning worked very well as my room was freezing in August. Bedding and bed was firm and clean. Obviously the staff is doing its best with what they are given. Someone renovate this hotel, or at least repair it. Location is convenient to airport, late night food and gas station. All in all I cannot recommend this hotel to anyone.

I like it of all! But the the cleaning chemical kindof too strong for me..we keep sneazing

Average area. Carpeting was so dirty I walked on a towel getting out of the shower to my suitcase. The towel was black. No towels in room. Had to go to front desk for towels after I undressed for shower. Mattress was very uncomfortable. First floor room so listened to the brats scream at the pool all night. Breakfast was 3 day old warmed up eggs.

Hotel was clean and room was arranged nicely. The hotel has a pool with hot tub in a courtyard that's protected by the building. The only complaint we had is regarding the breakfast. It was continental breakfast that had insufficient food for guests. There was also a sign saying not to take food back to the room, but there was insufficient seating in the dining area to accommodate more than 30 people.

Large room. Centrally located. Good breakfast with real eggs and waffles. Overall good hotel at greater price value.

Staff were very helpful and overall environment is good and price you pay is not that expensive compared to peers

Hot tub was out most of our stay and the staff wouldn't say anything to the parents of some loud kids.. But overall it wasn't bad

had a small problem with the door locking but was reolved right away.

My husband an I went to San Antonio for the weekend as a last get away before we have our baby. We wanted to be near both six flags and sea world so we booked this hotel for its price and location. While it is one of the cheaper prices hotels in San Antonio, it showed that in some areas. We had a cockroach in our room and a towel hanger was coming off the wall. I will say that the staff was wonderful and it has a complimentary hot breakfast bar which is always a plus.

Thank you so much for bringing this matter to our attention. I want to assure you that we take your feedback very seriously and all items below have been addressed and handled. Cops are at our property because we are a very small town inside of San Antonio and they keep a good eye in our property.
