    For our stay in July 2012, the location and the good price we got on the Riverwalk was very good. The hotel is old and every effort hasb been made to upgrade it. It was a nice room all in all. I am happy and enjoyed it.

    The parking lot. There was parking but it was small, cramped, hard to find a spot, had to wait for someone to leave to get their space, had to squeeze in unmarked spots that were way too little and had to share the lot with all kind of police cars. The a/c was loud and you either had it on or off.

    The design of the Lobby.

    The staff was not that nice, they did not even tell us about the ammenities or ask if we would like help with our luggage. They did not even direct us to the elevator or show us in the direction our room was. We basically had to learn everything on our own. Considering the Riverwalk is why people go to San Antonio they didn't even bring up the Riverwalk. We also do not like the fact that they said they were on the River walk but yet you have to drive to get to any restraunts or shops and pay $10 or more to park. They also charge $18.00 a night for parking in their hotel!! That is ridiculous. Our hotel bath tub started leaking black stuff and maintenance took forever to come fix it so we left our room after getting tired of waiting. It was fixed when we got back late that night. The A/C worked perfect during the day but did not work good at night. We were sweating.!! It was actually a very gloomy room that seemed a bit scary. The experience was terrible and we will not be going back to that hotel or to San Antonio.

    convenient to my business meeting site big, airy lobby good, tasty selection of breakfast foods nice swimming pool area clean, well-maintained

    $18/night parking fee wi-fi too sporadic in room coffee at breakfast could be better

    The staff were very friendly and helpful! Breakfast was included in our booking which was nice and cheap and it was't too bad. Eggs, sausages links, bacon, toasts, yogurt, fruits..etc. It was a typical hot/cold breakfast just like at home. The service was great!

    The room is too warm eventhough we turned it down to 73 degree.

  • 5.4

    Friendly staff. Valet service.

    Room was tiny because our room wasn't ready so got different room. Room reeked of paint there were wet paint signs up paint smell gave me a migraine.

  • 8.8

    Staff was awesome and friendly

    Someone smoked pot on our floor incessantly and had to cancel the 2nd night of our stay.

  • 7.4

    Staff were wonderful, bed was comfy, view was delightful!

    The toilet leaked when you flushed (not a huge inconvenience, just noticeable). Pool side beverages were majorly over priced. Self parking was not worth the 16 per night, could not find a parking spot at all.

    Access to Riverwalk

    Pay for parking, I will not go back unless you have free breakfast and parking

  • 9.6

    The hotel was great and the rooms with the balcony was a great surprise.

    The bathroom could use some TLC. The bath looked old and the tub backed up with water when taking a shower

  • 2.8

    really nothing

    you could hear every conversation the people in the rooms next to you would have, there really wasn't any privacy in that matter. the bathrooms did not look like they where cleaned very well, almost as if they just sprayed the cleaner and rinsed it off. the room also did not smell good at all, even from right when we walked in there was moldy smell that seemed to come from the AC unit. and when we turned the unit up in the morning to make it a little warmer we left it that way for the day, when we returned from our day the room had an even worse smell that it had when we first arrived. over all not worth it, i would spend a little more money and get something that was closer the riverwalk (even though this place is on the riverwalk, it really isn't close to anything that you will want to do in your day. about a 15 minute walk to everything worth seeing) so again over all not worth it, spend a little more money and get a better hotel that is actually on the riverwalk or don't try and stay in the river walk at all if you are really trying to save the money, this hotel is not worth it and i will never stay there agin.
