This isn't a bad hotel but we were a little taken back with the location. We were there for the Drum Corp competition at the Alamodome. The description reads San Antonio N Riverwalk so we fully expected to be in the middle of everything on the Riverwalk. The walk wasn't bad but you walk under the expressway and over some RR tracks - homeless people (we're guessing) were in the lot next to our hotel. Gas station had questionable people around it. We were told this was a safe area but we didn't feel comfortable after dark except the night at the Alamodome when everyone left the stadium together.
The people working there were FABULOUS! From check in to the drivers who dropped us downtown to the cleaning crew we met in the hallways. Rooms were clean including refrigerator, coffee and room for our luggage. A/C was ice cold! Breakfast was hot - delicious and plentiful! For such a small location there was an overflow space able to accommodate everyone and run efficiently keeping items filled and guests happy.
Overall we were satisfied. Parking was included at our location which was nice. Check out was easy and we were allowed to hang out while we waited for our son to arrive in San Antonio.
