Bevare of getting a room that somebody checked in before you and moved out from because of a not working AC, refriguator or toilet. And not cleaned! Be sure they dont overcharge you if if you show a fixed price from a booking you have. The hotel charge 10USD for parking in an unprotected spot. There a lot of placed...

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

We spent 2 nights on our trip to San Antonio. The hotel building belonged to the San Antonio county jail, so it is considered a local piece of history. Although the lobby and other places are renovated, I would say that rooms need a kind of renovation. Despite this, rooms were really comfortable, with frigde and microwave. Breakfast was quite...

My family stayed here one night. Worst place in our whole trip from Ca to Tx and back. Building is an old jail and in an Ironic twist of fate it is now surrounded by criminals. No on site parking.
