Great location if you're going to sea world and downtown. Not too far from either. Good, hot breakfast that includes bacon!! Friendly staff, indoor pool. Good place to stay at around 100 bucks. Free cookies at the front desk, and they even gave us a late check out! Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was no mini fridge...

Everyone was very helpful! Couldn't ask for a better staff. Breakfast was delicious and everything was clean! Coming back in December to celebrate my Mother's 85th birthday on Dec 25. This will be my home away from home!

A good friend referred this hotel to us and it did turn out to be above my expectations. Super convenient location, easy access from the airport and even better to get to the Lackland AF Base. It's next door to a couple of good restaurants, and a bunch of other things do do. Across the street from a big Cinema,...

We had a family suite. The room was comfortable. The showers hot water was not as hot as it could be. Breakfast was good. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool facilities were excellent. Not a new hotel, but for the price it was good.

The room was clean, modern, and well kept. It had all amenities one typically needs. The price was reasonable. The staff were friendly and the free breakfast service was typical of most hotels. I wish these types of hotels offered a higher quality breakfast. I'd be happy to pay extra for it.
