    Good location, you can walk to the Alamo or the River Walk in under 10 minutes. Clean room and when a mysterious "parking charge" appeared on my bill without any mention or warning, the staff removed it without a question when I approached them about it. Breakfast was OK, nothing special but it got the job done. There is a parking lot across the street. Good shower.

    The lady who checked us in was very rude...no tact at all. I regretted booking with them after dealing with her! That said, we never saw her again after that. The other staff members were much more polite. The bill quickly rose from the initial quote...including a parking charge that was never mentioned or explained when they gave me a parking pass. They removed it without a fuss but I thought that was unnecessary sneakiness.

    The staff was extremely friendly. The hotel was in a great location. The room was very clean and very comfortable. It was an incredible value for the price.

    Located very close to the river walk. Clean, Comfortable, we felt right at home.

    I liked how close it was to the Riverwalk. I liked how I was able to leave my car parked in their parking lot for two days without having to hunt for parking downtown. Everything I wanted to do in San Antonio was within walking distance of the hotel. Hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. The room was nice and comfortable for a couple to stay in. I liked how they had complementary continental breakfast.

    I could hear some street traffic noise in my hotel room during the day.

    Lovely room, and very comfortable bed.

    Coffee with the cont. breakfast was not good, at all. Also, when I frist arrived at the hotel, the parking was a little confusing, had to circle the block several times, before I figured out where to park. The parking area itself was very convenient to the hotel, once I found it. Would suggest that the parking information be included in the hotel descripiton/information on the web site.

    Nice and clean place, but it's best asset is location. A short walk to the Riverwalk, the Alamo, Hemispehere Park, etc. And forgive me if I forgot to say... with parking!

    The bathroom is really very narrow and uncomfortable. Be careful when going in and out the bath tub because you can easily have an accident, especially is you have a knee/back problem.

    Close to the river walk and only 3 floors.

    Room could have been cleaner. TV could have been better equipped for stations.

  • Older travelers

    The location was excellent. The staff were very nice. I was surprised by the range of options for the breakfast. Great coffee maker in lobby. Chocolate and bottled water in the room. Didn't see any little kids. Thought the hotel was almost empty - didn't hear my neighbors, but saw them in the morning so they were there.Small facility so easy to come and go. We could leave our car in the parking lot after we checked out.

    The windows appear to be the originals - single pane glass. We were in the front, second floor (only 3 floors). The buses outside were really loud in the afternoon after we checked in. I didn't think I'd be able to sleep (we leave on private road so not used to any road noise), but did although with my head wedged between two pillows. It was much quieter as the night wore on, If I stay there again, I'll pay more to stay in the back - won't stay in a front room again. I also didn't like that there was no tray for the soap in the shower (an old tub converted to shower).

    Very friendly staff, very fine position, just near the Riverwalk.

    Poor breakfast, no space for breakfast. An odd and unpleasant smell in the room and on the entire 1st floor.

  • Couple

    Close to the riverwalk.

    It is very old looking outside. There is no wifi internet and parking is not free.

  • Single

    Great value for the money. Close enough to the Riverwalk for my tastes.

    The room had a very strong, musty smell.

    Complimentary breakfast, all-day free coffee, excellent location to downtown and Riverwalk

    Lack of fridge and safe deposit box in room

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    What I like best during my stayed was, the hotel was very close to all the restaurants.

    The hotel does not have enough parking

    location; breakfast included

  • Single
    9.2

    The location was very good, close to Riverwalk and reachable cheaply with the city bus direct from the airport. Although I was told at check-in that wireless internet wasn't available in the rooms (only wired), my room right above reception did have a wireless signal.

    Noise from buses and such in the street was a bit too loud in my room. Also, the sound of the elevator was noticeable just outside my room's door.
