"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"
"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"
"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"

"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"
"Great experience, but the valet parking fee of $44 was too high for the area. This hotel is a good choice, but leave your car at home.2016-10-16"
"Great location. Excellent accommodations and staff. The hotel was expensive, but you get what you pay for.2016-02-04"
"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"

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.
