Friendly staff, convenient location near downtown and spacious and comfortable rooms Noise from the freeway can be bothersome at times
Clean. Good breakfast selection. I called before scheduling my stay. I was told the hotel was on the river walk. It was not. But it was walking distance away.
old hotel not really well kept. furniture was stained There are nicer hotels in San Antonio for the same price. This was a $50 hotel not a $100 one.
The beds were SO comfortable. It was clean, smelled good, and rooms were a good size. I'm a light sleeper and didn't notice any noise. The blackout shades kept the room dark and cool which was nice. There aren't many food options in the area, but we wanted to be near the AT&T center, which we were. No complaints about the hotel itself though
The breakfast is a great value and great selection of items which included fresh fruit. It's a nice room where the breakfast is meant to be eaten. The breakfast preparation staff member, Jennifer, was very nice and accommodating. When I arrived to the hotel lobby about 8:30pm on a Tuesday night, there were 4 non-threatening drunk people loitering in the lobby. After checking in, I needed to use the business center to print my flight boarding pass for the next day. The business center, small room adjoined to the lobby w/ 2 computers, had 2 very loud obnoxious adults on those computers loudly talking with one another in an argument. I wasn't patient to wait for them to leave; fortunately the hotel rep allowed me to use one of the computers behind the counter under her supervision to print my boarding pass. I stayed only 1 night. My room was on the 3rd floor in the middle of the hallway. It was VERY noisy! People constantly talked loudly while walking in the hallway past my room during evening and nighttime hours. Many people allowed their doors to slam shut during evening and nighttime hours. Then there were several times during the evening/night when small children were running down the halls making noises. It was difficult to get peace and quite during sleeping hours, which is the whole purpose of staying in a hotel. Needless to say though I was hoping to sleep peacefully, I wasn't able to sleep well at all. The exhaust fan in the bathroom didn't work, disallowing foul bathroom odors to be evacuated. I didn't like that the bathroom sink is actually located next to the hotel room door, outside of the bathroom, just as you walk into the hotel room. It's an awkward location. I paid in advance for this room. When I checked in, I noticed that the nightly rate was $20 less. If I had not pre-paid for the room, I would have saved $20. The staff would not provide any reimbursement.
First, City View overbooked. This was not communicated to Kayak, so after traveling when I arrived at 3AM, a very disgruntled employee stormed out of the back and told me through the locked door to leave, they have nothing for me. After statng that I have a reservation, and showing him the confirmation, he told me that "Kayak" overbooked them and to leave or he would call the police. You read that correctly. I asked for his name, which he refused to give to me. After asking again to look at my confirmation, I decided at this point I did not want to give them my money after this experience. We left and were forced to travel 2 hours home after a very long day and night already spent traveling. I called City View moments after leaving to again try and get the employees name, but was hung up on. I will say Kayak handled this situation beautifully, even going as far as to cal me to make sure we were accommodated. This was not a miss on Kayak's part, it was City View first for not notifying Kayak or myself of the overbooked rooms, and second, for handling the manner upon my arrival so terribly.
Hotel is super clean (spotless!) and modern, with free unlimited Wifi and friendly and helpful staff. There are complimentary maps of the downtown area at the front desk. Our King room was well-appointed (mini fridge, ironing board, air conditioner, microwave, coffee maker - which I didn't use) and my husband wanted me to mention that it always smelled good. Bed was comfortable as well. Much more budget friendly than the hotels right in the heart of the Riverwalk. About less than a mile walk to the central downtown area, which can be a bit more daunting when the weather spikes or drops (it was 32 one morning when we ventured out for breakfast). Easy access to the Alamodome and amtrak station, though. Since it's close to the Amtrak station you can hear the train blow its horn, but it was only in the morning (a reasonable time - nothing horrible) and we ended up using it as a secondary alarm clock. No bar or restaurant onsite but we didn't need any of that and tons of places in San Antonio deliver so the lack of room service wasn't off-putting. Would definitely stay here again!
The lady at the check-in desk was the only thing my friend and I liked about the hotel. Half of the lights didn't work. Beds were dirty. Rooms were dirty. The lamp in the room looked like it had been through a few hotel room brawls. The bathroom was dirty. The room smelled awful and shady people hung around and stopped by the hotel even if they weren't staying there. This hotel is in such a bad area and has such horrible clientel, they run your license plate number when you check in. For two young girls I would not recommend this hotel unless armed. Seriously. We checked in, got one look at the room and checked out. We stayed at a better, safer hotel.
Easy to find... right on frontage of major highway...easy to travel to downtown san antonio....very clean, comfortable and spacious room...free breakfast...free internet There was nothing i didnt like.
Convenience to I-35. That's about it. Was given a room with an open come can, trash on the floor, TV on, and beds undone.
The food was really good over all its a good place for family just getting started on travels and looking to save money. it was not clean as it should have been services was not as professional
Jut needed a place to sleep and dress. It served my purpose. Problems with the door not working properly and heater was a little nosy.
Not much. This was NOT a 3 star hotel. It would have been a fair deal at half the price.
Three of four lamps didnt work, one was even in pieces leaning against the wall. The phone in the room did not work either. Dead bugs on the floor, I understand its Texas but this was ridiculous. Restaurant is closed and so is the bar even though it is advertised online as being there. So much wrong here to even list.
For the location ~1 mile from the River Walk and Alamodome, it was a great price. Nothing fancy, but the rooms were clean, and the bed was very comfortable. It doesn't have special amenities, but for a quick visit, it was a great spot.
I liked the location of the hotel, it was within walking distance of everything I needed and had bus stops right outside. The bus comes by every 15 min. My stay was very comfortable, no amenities though. The hotel is a non-smoking hotel but my room smelled strongly of smoke, especially inside the bathroom.
The rooms were clean and tidy The rooms were not soundproofed and there is no mention of the trains that pass close by throughout the night alongside it being on a very noisy street. I would have thought that families with children would be placed at the back of the building and not on the main road.
It was a bed and close for me to access the San Antonio Fairgrounds. The bed was solid rock, and there was no fridge/microwave in the room. The front desk staff did not speak clear english, and also it is rude to change from english to your native tongue while dealing with a customer. This is America, the language is english!
the online information read they offered continental breakfast but at the time of our stay the staff at the check in office said it was discontinued until further notice. We were looking forward to the continental breakfast to save time and money.
My room was clean and fresh towels everyday The bed was not Queen size more on the twin/full size.
Easy access to n fro downtown San Antonio The floors and microwave dirty
The room Location , train was close by
The staff was friendly, that was the only good thing about this motel. The shower handles were not clean, you could tell they have not been clean for a long time. There was roaches. It was disgusting. Roach crap on the microwave, roaches in the microwave. It was NASTY!!! I would never stay here again. I DONT NOT RECOMMEND!!!
Hotel has a decent location I didnt like anything about this hotel
The location was close to the AT&T center. The room had a strong smoke odor, there was a bug near the bed. Overall the room wasn't very clean.
Closeness to military base I had 2 rooms. One cleaned but no clean towels. Other room not cleaned at all
The room had a modern look to it. The water pressure in the tub and the sink was bad. The tub got full of water too quickly, and the water in the sink squirted out.
Good enough for the price.
The first room the bed sheets were stained. I was moved room and that bed had even bigger stains on the sheet even some cigaret burn, even though it was a non smoking room.. It was a really bad experience staying here.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
thin walls, you can hear everything from the room next door to the traffic o the highway. i don't even think the room ever went up to temp poor insulation, noisy, took the attendant longer to acknowledge me than it did to book the room.
The bed was too hard
The location was convenient for downtown and the riverwalk. I disliked EVERYTHING else!!! I don't understand why anyone would give this hotel a good review. First off, there was a lot of construction going on right in front of the hotel, which I know is not their fault, but still very inconvenient. The facade of it was horrible (must've been enhanced with Photoshop for the web). The employee at the front desk didn't quite know what she was doing and took forever to check us in. The room was horrible. Very outdated and could have been a lot cleaner. In fact, I had to take a towel back to the front desk because it had stains on it. Also, I found hair that did not belong to me or my family members in a couple of different places. The bottom line is...DON'T STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!! I suggest somewhere near the airport or medical center. It will be convenient enough and won't cost as much as staying downtown or on the riverwalk.
Close to the Alamo and Riverwalk Breakfast sucked and the towels were cheap
Front of house staff was very nice and the room was very clean.
Nothing it was nasty! The bathroom was dirty The toilet has pee on it I had to clean! Towels were dirty! It was just gross!
Close to where I needed to go
I was there for Fort Sam Houston's AIT graduation and the location of the hotel is within 2 miles of the visitors center. The room was very clean and the front desk staff was extremely helpful and pleasant when I had questions about directions.
Great location. The staff is friendly .. The room was okay for it's price The bathroom smelled like urine , the pillows and bed were not comfortable , the cover sheet were smelly too
It's close to the downtown area. The river walk and the city parks are all close. The room was very nice and the people working there were very friendly. Not really. I would definitely stay there again.
Staff were polite and helpful. Room and hotel property was substandard for cleanliness and maintenance. Our room clock never worked and we asked for a new clock every day for all three nights we were there and they didn't seem to have one to replace it. We rely on a clock at night.
Clean room with couch, microwave, iron w. iron board. Great location. Freezer should be de-iced for the refrigerator get cooler.
clean rooms, comfy bed, great customer service, great price, safe-feeling part of town nope
Access, price Expected better building maintenance
We traveled with 4 kids so having 2 rooms for the price of one was really what led me there and what kept me sane for the 6 nights we were there. The free breakfast was not good. The cereal listed on the dispensor was not what was in there. Very small selection and quality of danishes. We ended up going out to eat for breakfast, but I wasn't mad because the price I paid for the room was such a steal.
My family booked a room here based on the reviews and price. The front desk offered a price of about $50 more than what I paid, even after telling them the price I could get online. I told them I'll book it online since the price was better. My wife personally wouldn't use the covers/blankets cause she felt the room was dirty. The room was cleaned daily and we did notice this. It's wasn't too far from the sights we wanted to see and places we wanted to visit, but it was a little off and tucked away. The breakfast was decent. I would highly recommend searching elsewhere for the price. The Microtel next door to it looks a little better.
Its really good for the price, the best option for sure for those looking for a cheap getaway. The breakfast was really poor, just bread and cofee....
The drive from the fort to this hotel is very easy even for an out of towner The room's air was not turned on so when first coming into the room it was VERY hot inside and it did not cool down until the next morning when we were leaving if you are looking for a place to just lay down and sleep and don't necessarily care about the bells and whistles than this hotel is a good one
They were prompt at getting what u needed Toilet was broken tub drain was slow so water wouldn't go down the drain fast enough
I liked the rate I got through booking.com and I really liked the size of the rooms! It was nice to not feel cramped in a tiny room. Lots of space!
The hotel is dated. We stayed in the King suite. One side was cold (side near a/c) and the other side was warm. The room was exceptionally clean and the staff members were mostly helpful. However when I called the front desk on one occasion to ask about the wireless signal loss, I was abruptly cut off and dismissed. The location of the hotel is not desirable. The area is safe, however there are no good restaurants or stores nearby. The hotel is dated. The pool is ridiculously small. The wifi did not work consistently.
The location, price, size and cleanliness of room, very nice, professional and helpful staff. I truly enjoy my stay at Travelodge Fort Sam/AT & T Center.
I cannot say enough kind things about the helpful and friendly staff at the travellodge. Our room was ready, clean and spacious. The continental breakfast was fresh and filling. I might add that they had a free gourmet coffee machine avaliable 24 hrs in the lobby that was the best coffee in all of San Antonio. I really appreciated the staff going the extra mile and printing out our boarding passes for the following day. That was very helpful and they didn't have to do it. I would not think twice about staying there again or recommending it to someone else. They made you feel like family. It was not downtown where most of our business was. But they can't do anything about that. I would still stay there anytime I chose to visit San Antonio again.
Staff was so helpful and kind, but the hotel was awful, I expected a 3 stars hotel, and it is just a 2 star motel (hotel de paso). The room wasnt clean as it should be, and room was so dark, I really expected something better. I will not return to hotel
The location is central located perfect to get to everything. The microwave in the room didnt work. We didnt have an iron or a coffee pot. Our room key continually didn't work, being that we were there only to sleep.it was tolerable. While we were eating breakfast they came and removed the items at exactly 9:30 am because time was up even though we were still there and the waffle iron had just heated up. Tub did not drain when you took a shower.
staff was not polite, not pleasant white trying to get direction to hotel, light bulb out , alarm clock not working and there was a foul swell in hallway
Great customer service and awesome housekeeping! Breakfast could have been a little better.
I requested a fan when I booked and after I got to my room. Never received one. The towels were horrible, the shower didn't work properly and there was no plkace to put the soap....strange. The sheets didnt fit the bed either. I've stayed at better hotels in the uk & Ireland then this one. Not worth the money!!
The breakfast was good There were a few days that our room wasn't cleaned and we had to go to the office and ask for towels.
The bed was very comfortable. AC was noisy and temperture control was by on until cold and off until hot.
The owner/manager was very helpful and friendly. He provided a personal shuttle to the event I was in town for. He also allowed a little longer check-out time knowing that my event would not be over prior to his normal time. Very nice man. Also, the water pressure was fantastic so after my race the shower felt so good!! The beds were a little hard, but I was so tired, I didnt mind terribly.
Peaceful and quiet!! The staff was very friendly. They went above and beyond to insure you were satisfied with your stay. Pointed out things to do and how to get there. We will be staying again!!
Shuttle service to the River Walk was one of thr reasons that sold me on making the reservation and it worked out very well. The Manager was very pleasant and helpful. The area.
I liked staying here because it was clean and it was quiet and very simple Just what I was looking for. Not the most upscale place but no interuptions and very close to everywhere we wanted to go. It said we were supposed to get free breakfast but I had no idea where to go to get it. And I never seen any signs about the shuttle service they offered.
Helpful friendly staff, free shuttle into city. Nice quiet area.
The kindness of the staff, the shuttle to the city centre: very practical,e ven if you have your own car. light breakfast, but just enough...except on saturday: there is no breakfast on saturday, and we did not see any information about it.
The big screen tv All of it. If they have it at a 3 star then motel 6 is a 5 star. I hated to have to stay there but since it was already 5pm the day before 4th of july everything else was already booked in the san antonio area. I have stayed in bad areas and hotels but that was when I was younger and didnt have kids. The sounds of gun shots at 11:30-midnight is why I feel like the location was not so good
Attened work related conventtion. Limited selection for breakast.
