Happy with the service and room. We had issues with the 1st room, when we asked to be moved. They were very accommodating. About a half a mile from the river walk

Decent spot close to Downtown

Pros: location and cleanliness.
Location: St. Paul square and the Downtown San Antonio area are a short walk away, and the Alamodome is practically next door.
Chose this place because of the proximity to the Amtrak Station in St. Paul square (and the closeness to the SA Riverwalk). The room was thouroughly modern and updated with the new flat screen TVs everyone loves and had basic cable channels available. Plus it had a microwave (not that I used it - but still nice to know it was there). Cleanliness was up to par and didn't have any real problems to speak of. Overall not a bad deal for the price I paid and being so close to the center of town and the river walk without having to pay those river walk hotel prices.

Nice n Clean

Nice clean hotel, while it doesn't have any of the bigger ammenities like a pool, restaurant or bar (this is why only 4 stars) it is only a short walk (under 10min) to the river walk where you will find plenty of shops, restaurant, bars ect. Would I stay here again yes I would the rooms are clean the, the bed was comfortable as was the pillow.

Nice Place, Nice Price

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
This is the 2nd time we have stayed in the city view and it was again a lovely experience. Nice clean rooms, friendly staff. Modern and easily accessible to all major attractions. No problems parking either. We're in a band and didn't get weird looks for dressing eccentric looks any hassle for dragging equipment in with us. Will stay again next time we are in SA.

Great place and great value!

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet, free parking
Cons: no breakfast
This hotel was such a hidden gem! Not only did it look newly renovated, but it was very clean. I have experienced more expensive hotels on the Riverwalk that were less quality than this hotel. It's on the other side of the highway (near the Alamodome), but nothing a short drive or cab ride won't fix. The free parking was amazing and so was the whirlpool room we chose! Great stay & will be staying there again on our next visit!

Nice people, nice little hotel!

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: Noisy
Granted, this hotel is next to the railroad tracks and it's a few blocks walk to the downtown, but it's a cool little hotel. It's a great place for couples and folks on business. I'm not sure it has anything to offer for a family (no breakfast, no pool, etc.) and frankly I hope it stays that way. No offense, but I'd rather NOT see gum on the sideswalks and litter and fingerprints all over the elevator walls and hallways. The people running the hotel are very helpful. We had troubles, even with our GPS, finding the hotel, however after a phone call we were directed via a much easier route.
