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,... More

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.

Average to very good hotel given age. The location was excellent; walking distance to local restaurants, shopping malls and movie theaters. Valerie, cleaning lead, provided outstanding service! Her bright and refreshing attitude about life and work experiences transcends all others in the working class.

Clean hotel. New mattresses in rooms. Quick check-in process. Nearby restaurants within walking distance. Breakfast on Saturday morning was very busy. Convenient location to Sea World and AFB and a quick direct drive to the airport.
