This hotel was in the perfect spot without breaking the bank. Approximately three blocks from the river walk made the trip. The hotel is a historical site. Was formally the county jail but now converted into the hotel. Our room was very spacious with a very high ceiling. The renovation looked great. The staff did an excellent job keeping the...

Picked this hotel because it was close to the Children's Hospital - my son had an appointment on Monday and we though we'd make a weekend of it. As we drove by my son commented that it looked like a jail. Surprise! It used to be a jail, the Bexar County Jail. They actually had hangings on the second floor....

Nice, comfortable beds. My only issue is that this is a historic building and air conditioning is a big portable unit hung on wall about 7 ft up. It blows right on both beds. It may be different in another room. Breakfast has lots of options.

I booked this room online for two reasons: it was a Holiday Inn and it was advertised as being within walkable distance from the river walk. I expected the hotel to be up to the usual Holiday Inn standards and this hotel was not. We walked into our room and found a huge burn on the carpet, someone had dropped...

I chose this hotel for two reasons, one the tag "Holiday Inn" and other, its proximity to river walk. I wanted to spend time in downtown closer to attractions. Kayak showed me two options one is Wyandhan and other one is Holiday Inn express. While Wyndhan with breakfast are costing me 15 dollars more, the biggest turnoff for Wyndhan was...

We stayed at the old Bexar County Jail that Holiday Inn Express has renovated into a hotel in downtown San Antonio, Texas near the Riverwalk...the fact that it was an old jail was a drawing point for something different besides the fact that it was $100 cheaper than the normal Holiday Inn Express nearby...the staff was very friendly and accommodating...

Had no idea it use to be the jail and was built in the 1800s.....lot of history about the place but the rooms are modern with high ceilings. Staff is excellent!!! It's within walking distance of the Market Square but the 9 blocks to the Alamo area was too much for older folks. Stay here, it's fun
