Parking was expensive. Around the hotel, you have to pay for parking everywhere. I feel if you are a guest parking should be very minimal.

We checked in early around 12:30, we were informed that our room was not ready and they would text us when it was, we never received a text telling that our room was ready. We finally asked at 4:00 if our room was ready and we were told it was ready at 2:30. We never got our wake up call and we almost missed out flight. Coffee maker in room did not work A very very disappointing stay.

Dear Dan, Thank you for being our guest in San Antonio. We're very sorry to hear there was an issue with check-in and with a wake-up call. This certainly isn't the standard of service we aim to deliver, and we will mention your comments to our team so improvements can be made. We'll also check the coffee maker for repairs or replacement. Many thanks for bringing this to our attention so we can improve our guest experience going forward.

We had a rental car and drove from the airport to the hotel. All was good until the next morning when I had to get to Lackland air force base for a graduation ceremony. The hotel lost the keys to my rental vehicle and I had to take a taxi to the graduation ceremony. I was dropped off at the base and had to walk 2 miles in the cold to get where I needed to be. Had to stand in the cold because I didn't have a car to wait in until the ceremony began. My mother went down to see what the problem was with the missing keys and the hotel did find them so she was able to pick me back up. Once back to the hotel I wanted the hotel to pay for my taxi fee. They refused. They did however take the parking charges away for our 3 night stay but I didn't feel that was enough. They should have paid for the taxi as well because of all the inconvenience that their negligence. Needless to say, I will not stay at this hotel again. I don't feel they appreciate their patrons!!
