I thought the room was very roomy and nice! Had a few run-ins with some crickets, but all in all, pretty good hotel. The staff was very helpful...I actually plan on going back the end of this year!

I made a reservation through Expedia.com. This reservation was for two rooms for two nights. When we arrived late Friday night, we checked into our rooms. As we entered the room, we smelled a foul odor. These rooms were filthy. The carpet was stained and dirty and looked like it has never been steamed cleaned for a long period of...

Changed room once due to ants everywhere, then checked out early when I woke up to roaches crawling on my stuff!!!! Wanted a refund and they refused. I...

Over all the room was clean. The front desk clerk was lax, chewing on a straw the entire time while checking us in. We got to the room and it was not what I booked. Had to go back to the front desk to chang rooms. But that's not the worse thing. It is a very undesirable location. The outside...

Other than that, the location was very close to the Alamo and Riverwalk. Hallway and room didn't have that cheap motel smell. Linens were well stocked. They served...

Do not pay full price for this hotel! I paid a discount price from expedia and was still disappointed! Heated pool? Yea, right, more like cold and dirty! Work out room? Huh, more like storage closet filled with luggage carts. Oh yea, there was the one work out bench (that my husband had to set up). Very noisey, next to...

Stayed here for 2 nights over spring break. Our room was clean, however, there was a beer cap from previous tenant on top of TV - stayed there the entire stay. Makes you wonder how well the housekeepers are doing their job. The alarm clock was broken and you could not read the numbers on it at all. Called front...
