"This motel was horrible. The room was filthy, and there were fingerprints on everything. The floor was dirty, and the AC didn't work well. The bedsheets were stained, and there were burn holes in the comforter and chair. All the hangers had a sticky substance on them. There was mold on the cloth shower curtain, and the drain had hair and soap scum in it, so the shower didn't drain well. The towels were discolored. Don't stay here.2020-09-03"
"Convenient to Hwy. 281 and the River Walk, but far enough from the tourist area. The hotel was elegant and the furnishings were nice, but the mattress wasn't comfortable and I didn't sleep well. The employees were pleasant and courteous. The on-site restaurant was expensive, so we ate out. No continental breakfast, and the in-room snack prices were exorbitant. Not a hotel for the frugal.2015-11-26"
"The AC didn't adequately cool the room. Parking for guests was inadequate, and one parking area was a block away from the hotel. Consider staying elsewhere.2020-08-31"

"We had a wonderful stay. The hotel was within walking distance of Baptist Medical Hospital. Our room was nice and had a view of the River Walk. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The restaurant food was great, and we enjoyed the bar. There was even a grassy area for pets. I highly recommend staying here.2018-09-03"

"The check-in clerks were really nice, friendly, and welcoming. I felt right at home, and they made my stay comfortable. However, we texted valet parking when we checked out and ended up waiting 30 minutes for our car. We weren't too happy about that. Consider parking in the non-valet lot next door for $25 per night. I do recommend staying here because of the friendly staff.2019-06-25"
"The AC air in the 1st room smelled like mold. The toilet was clogged, and the towel rack fell off the wall when I touched it. I was moved to a better room, but the AC air still smelled like mold. All in all, my stay was a little poor but comfortable.2020-04-12"
"We had to change rooms 3 times before we felt comfortable enough to sleep. Among the issues were peeling paint, gaps around the doors, old, tube TVs, stained carpeting and bedding, scum in the bathtubs, and a faint smell of heating fuel. The staff went above and beyond to try to accommodate us, but there was only so much they could do considering what they had to work with. Find another motel.2015-03-03"
"Nice place to stay. The hotel was just a block from the Alamo, and the front of the hotel is at the spot where Santa Anna's troops breached the Alamo wall in 1836. The bathroom was large. Parking wasn't included in the room rate, but there was public parking next door. I had a comfortable stay. 2020-06-28"

"The hotel was clean and looked safe, though it was right next to a gas station. It smelled like smoke when I entered since people smoked right out front, but the room was odor-free. The employees were nice and helpful. Standard breakfast provided.2017-06-10"

"Great location and good rates. The AC in my hotel room came on with a blast of cold air and a roaring sound. The toilet paper holder wasn't stable, so the roll kept falling off. My room wasn't cleaned until I called the front desk at 7 PM. The employees were helpful. 2016-11-08"

"The hotel was quiet lovely and modern, and had an uncluttered atmosphere. Great kitchen with dishes and everything needed for a meal. The TV was on a swivel bracket, so it could be seen from almost anywhere in the room. The bed only had 2 small pillows, though.2016-02-10"

"Excellent location. The hotel was nice and in good condition. We had the Do Not Enter sign on the door and were annoyed by the phone calls and cards slipped under the door complaining that housekeeping couldn't service the room. Avoid the greasy food at the Cactus Cafe.2017-01-24"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
