I cannot believe I was charged for these rooms. To begin with when I arrived I was to have 2 adjoining pet friendly rooms with queen beds they only had one room for me so they put half of my family in a room across the hotel. Then rm 253 bed closest to bathroom has a huge slump in mattress,...

I check out tomorrow and although the saying..."You get what you pay for" rings true here. I still feel robbed! Mind you, I am a country person so I can rough it. I didn't expect 5 Star but descent. The first room on the bottom floor wouldn't warm up. Unfortunately, we got here during freezing cold/snowy weather. They moved me...

The first thing we saw on opening the door was roaches. The smell was hideous.The bathroom hadn't been cleaned for a "LONG TIME". There were dead roaches and a dead scorpion in the tub. There was "NO" room service-no clean towels or sheets, no bed made. We immediately complained and set out to look for another room. Everything close was...

I chose this hotel in spite of poor reviews, based solely on it's location to the Lackland AFB. We were in town for our son's graduation. We checked in to the hotel only to find a filthy room, with bed bugs. We were in the room for less than 30 min. before we checked out. I captured one of the...

Although we were there for the BMT graduation, we decided that was the closest place to stay at...however, one night there was too much. The place is dirty, seedy office help, and not worth saving money to stay. I was there with two teen girls, and did not feel completely safe. It looked nothing like the pictures posted in their...

We booked this motel specifically to be close to Lackland. It is one mile to walk to the reception center. Not bad. We didn't have to rent a car. The hotel is really not that great. As most other posters have noted, the color scheme is ugly. The taxi driver warned us not to allow any females in our party...

Had a pleasant stay, convient and close to the base. Beware of the flyers that are left on your door. Ordered a pizza from Donatello's Pizzaria and it took 1 1/2 hours to be delivered and the pizza was horrible. And when I got home the business double charged by credit card and refused to refund my money so I...
