Staff extremely friendly service great location great
Hotel was clean, the staff was friendly, exclusive access to the Alamo and Riverwalk
The location right on the riverwalk is excellent! Hotel is very nice and staff is very friendly! Would definitely stay again in the future. My only compaint about the hotel is the cost of parking. Valet parking is $40 and self parking is $30 per night. Very expensive. If you stay a few nights parking ends up costing you as much as an additional night's stay.
Fabulous location, very friendly staff who were very accommodating. Excellent bronch every morning. Wait staff in the restuara to were friendly and helpful. Room was a reasonable size but bathroom was a little bit worn. On the one day we forgot to leave a tip, the cleaning staff did a less than adequate job cleaning the room.
Great location. Beautiful hotel
Location was wonderful, room was clean Hotel was dated. Too expensive for what we got. Upon return to our room we discovered our AC was not working. Front desk sent up a tech but he couldn't fix it. So they gave us a fan.... No one from mgmt contacted me and no apologies. Just nothing. I paid less for my room at the beautiful La Cantera the night before.
The view of the room was amazing! Enjoy time on the top level pool with an amazing view of the city. Construction on the second floor during the day.
Front desk staff were exceptional as were housekeepingfolks as we travelled through the hotel.
Centrally located in Downtown, you are minutes from most sites and right on the scenic river walk. Nice and helpful staff will greet and assist you. sound proofing. With construction across the street waking you up at 6:40 am, easily hearing the conversations of others in the hall ways and flushing of toilets, sleep was easily disrupted. shower tub and carpet had stains/not fully cleaned. bathroom fixture groves had visible dust collected. really small pool, not sure if its that i'm from Miami, Fl where there is many pools. its about the size of the elevator hallway and maybe 4 ft deep.
Room was nice and orderly. Friendly staff. Couldn't get the room cool enough. Didn't sleep very well due to the room not being cool enough. Very humid.
Convenient to Alamo & other attractions! Easy entry!
Rooms clean. Easy access to riverwalk. All employees helpful and friendly Nothing
Great breakfast, lovely bathroom, comfortable beds. Very slow elevators. Unfortunately we were leaving the same time a large group from a convention was checking out and the 3 elevators could not keep up with the demand.
Enjoyed the kickback and proximity to riverwalk. they charged my card $482 dollars for parking when it was only supposed to be $46. Took them a week to refund the money and then they still charged me for the parking!! What a joke! Where is the coustomer service?
Location Elevator use was impossible, walked down stairs from 15th floor with luggage.
Excellent hotel near the heart of the riverwalk.
I was very surprised that not only did I get free breakfast with my stay but also free dinner (buffet) and 3 free happy-hour drinks each day! The staff was friendly (sometimes almost over-friendly), and the location was perfect. Highly recommend. Room smelled like chlorine when I came in, and the water tasted heavily chlorinated. The room was a bit poorly lit, and the windowsill outside the room was consistently overrun with pigeons. Glasses as opposed to plastic cups would be preferred (for the environment), and a safe to lock up valuables would have been nice. (I prefer not to have to take my passport with me everywhere.)
The room was small and we couldn't even upgrade
Location is adjacent to convention center, staff is very professional and strives to make you feel welcome. Rooms are clean and everything worked. Rooms are dated with sound transmitting walls. Amenities are business travel grade without the higher end amenities expected for the price.
The service from the hotel was very much as I would of expected. As soon as in pulled I to valet, the valets were very kind to not only greet and open the door, they immediately unloaded the car and took me inside to check in. With warm greeting from the staff, I was very impressed with how clean the entire hotel was in addition to the room. Great service and defiantly will be back One if the employees seemed to have a little bit of attitide considering that all I asked for was to have shaving cream sent to my room. Other than that, everything else was fine.
The staff was very friendly, helpful, and professional. Train noise in the early morning hours outside the hotel and noisy visitors next door and down the hall.
Very nice accommodations. Breakfast buffet was understaffed, was not explained properly
Location was right no the river. Beautiful Lobby Rooms were very comfortable, awesome view of the tower. Valet Parking was $37 + Tax = $40.00!
Everything, but the outdoor smoking areas were in direct sun or behind pool area that had no air.
From the complimentary brunch at Ruth Chris, to the friendliness of the staff, i am impressed everytime i come here.
I didn't like that when checking in they ask for my credit card again after I had already paid $857 online. Not knowing that valet was not included they kept trying to swipe different amounts to charge and blocked my card for suspicious faudulent charges. Terrible communication cuz they could've asked me what card I wanted to use, nothing. Also valet customer service was horrible while my sister was arriving in her vehicle with my nephews she asked for help carrying her luggage off and was ignored by valet. He could've called someone for help, but definitely not worth the money, never again
Beautiful view. Very peaceful. Didn't realize there would be 60$ charge for parking
I loved the location. Steps from the river and the mall. My room had way too much wear and tear. The head board was all scratched up. The tub has cracked and rusted and was clogged up the water would not drain when i took a shower. The door handle was at 5 o clock instead of 3. The room did not feel like a Grand Hyatt room. It felt like i was at a cheap hotel. I suggested to the manager that that room should not be occupied untill it get fixed.
Hotel had lots of activities planned for families and kids, including egg hunt and wake up call by the Easter bunny. Super friendly staff and very clean. Excellent access to the mall and food court area for those that like different tastes on a budget, but also quick access to very nice restaurants as well. Some of the activities were at the other Marriott across the street
Housekeeping was fast. Location on the river walk was very convenient. The room and bathroom were very small. There was also a very strong scent of perfume that was overwhelming when you walked into the hotel. We noticed it every time we came into the hotel during our stay. It was almost nauseating. Parking was expensive. It was the week of Thanksgiving and the front desk seemed to be severely understaffed.
Location, easy to find, by riverwalk. Oh, the people working there, OUTSTANDING IN EVERY ASPECT! Nothing, would stay there if the prices were better!
How close it was to the river walk. The smell on our floor and room size.
Near Convention Center. Bathroom was not clean.
The hotel was great and the staff was nice as well by accommodating you with the services and room. We had a great view and we could just walk downstairs to the river walk. The river walk was close but the places we wanted to go to were further than expected. Overall the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter was great especially since it has a mall right down stairs. I did not like that you had to pay for parking. Your paying a price you would think that that would be included. Also there was no mini fridge in the room for food.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating! The fee for parkig at the hotel was ridiculous, $36 per night.
Right on the RiverWalk, Hotel Contessa is luxury meets romance. My sister stay here on spring break and had a wonderful time. The staff was helpful and the city is definitely tourist friendly. Filled with history, charm, and luxury, downtown San Antonio along with the Hotel Contessa were great for our girl's getaway. Although the city is tourist friendly, we did got lost. Also, the Hotel Contessa needs to hire more people on their housekeeping staff. During our stay, housekeeping forgot to clean our room one day. Other than that, things were great.
Check In was easy. Hotel room sitting area was actually very comfortable and functional to use, unlike most average hotel suites. Location was great. On the Riverwalk plus just 2 blocks from literally everything. Self parking lots were super close as well, if you don't like waiting for the valet everytime. Hotel desk staff were business friendly, but it did not feel genuine. Which is the opposite of everyone else we met in San Antonio. This was one of the friendliest cities we've encountered!! Also the tub in our room did not drain properly, so you stood in water while you showered and the faucet was loose and spun all the way around.
THE staff was very accommodating and very nice. Everything was provided before I would ask for it. Overall, a great experience . Love the old Spanish charm that the hotel is made off. Very charming ambiance. The session that I attended in San Antonio finished every 2230 in the evening. I did not like that the hotel restaurant is close early like around 2200. I wish the restaurant is open 24 hours. I also wish that there is a Starbucks inside the hotel for the convenience of all the hotel guest.
The suite was great - nice sitting area, spacious bathroom, good bedroom and everything worked perfectly. The hotel's location is directly on a loop of the riverwalk which is good because it puts you right into the attraction, but is not on the main section so it's much quieter and easier to find a dining place. Parking is available across the street from the hotel and the street itself is not as busy as those nearer the Alamo. Parking at the hotel is a ridiculous $36/night and they charged for two parking spots for our two motorcycles even though we actually had both bikes consolidated out of the way in the valet area not even in the parking garage. That was irritating. The hotel staff were polite but very cold and decidedly unfriendly. Don't believe I did anything to be offensive or difficult - I didn't even argue about the parking issue - but all of the desk staff (two in the evening, one in the morning) gave the impression they had much better things to do than speak with me.
very clean, great location, friendly staff,
Cyn from the front desk and Michael at the concierge desk were fantastic! They helped make my stay amazing!
The front desk staff was unprepared and it to over 45 minutes to check in
nice "earthy' atmosphere and location love the suite option very expensive valet parking and no self parking lot poor room service options and other snack options no balconies or windows to open poor ventilation in rooms small pool and hot tub broken
Location and large size rooms Issues with hot water and terribly slow and incompetent valet
Made a special stop at the river walk on our five day trek from Pittsburgh to puerto Vallarta Mexico. Stopped to enjoy the beautiful view and exeperience the river walk. The resort was absolutely gorgeous. Unique with design, very friendly conceierge, and beautiful room layout. Our one and only critique, and rather silly at that, after pulling in with our vehicle and stopping at the front valet, the attendant seemed almost shocked when we said, yes we would like you to park the car, and replied with an almost doubtful "are you sure? Wouldn't you like to hear the prices?" Though I'm sure he was just trying to do his job and avoid later frustration, the tone in which he asked us the question was borderline offensive. Young man if we can afford to stay where we are staying we certainly assure you we can afford to park.
Very clean. Polite, professional staff. Wife enjoyed the spa and the gym is very nice. Good location for visiting all of the tourist spots in san Antonio. No hand rails in the bath tubs/shower. Fell twice getting into and out of the shower. Sides of the tub are very high. Too many children running around the halls unattended, noisy. No frig or micro wave in the room. Onsite food and drink is very expensive. Ice machines are far apart on the floors. no vending machines for late night drinks/snacks. Valet parking is very expensive. View was nothing spectacular because of the trees surrounding the hotel.
Good location near the convention center and the Irish pub with the crazy and fun piano entertainer. I just can't understand that any hotel in the world today still charge you extra for internet access. is there any other single thing that annoys 100% of their guests as much as this? Just add the cost on the room price and looks like your generous. Now these hotels just look greedy.
The Menger is very historic and literally right across the street from the Alamo. There are lots of things to do that are within easy walking distance that give you the San Antonio experience. The historic nature alone is worth the stay. We didn't get a room in the old, original, historic section. Our room was outdated and in need of renovation.
We liked the location so much!! Just besides the Alamo, and the hotel is nicely preserved!! You can see the age of the hotel in the rooms! The bathroom was extremely small but usefull. The valet it's on the expensive side!!
Ordered breakfast off the restaurant menu. It was high priced and the portion size was small. 1 breakfast taco with sides was $16!
I stay here often and I have tried other places it's so luxurious for the money and the location is in the middle of everything!
Location is excellent Beds are quite narrow. Air conditioning went out one night. Thankfully, it was repaired the next day.
San Antonio's 1859 hotel was all it promised. Perfect central location next to the Alamo, and the Menger Hotel itself is rich in history, generously displayed throughout the building. The room itself was just fine, but I am interested mostly in the ambience outside the room (so long as the beds, showers and such are good). We will return. One note of special interest: the maid was a great source of info; cheerful and helpful! The view from the window? - a wall! Next time we will ask for a courtyard or other external, interesting view. Otherwise, all was well.
Historical, legendary hotel - also comfortably contemporary ... Plus, the staff at the front desk was polished and helpful. They made us feel they were serious about our enjoyment of the hotel. Would have liked to have stayed another day to enjoy more of the amenities, such as the Menger Bar and its TR Rough Riders connection. Note: You really need a "none of the above" category for the second question on who was in your party -- none of those definitions fit. This was frustrating and I almost didn't write this review, but decided to submit it by checking "group of friends" even though it's wholly inadequate to describe my party, which was me, my sister, and mother, and my sister's boyfriend.
Beautiful hotel with charm and character. So close to everything and convenient for someone on foot/ for public transport/ for tours. Great pool. People working there were very nice - allowed late check out at 1:00pm. A bit noisy at night - one night it was loud drunk tourists, once it was random construction at restaurant in mall next door, & once the fire alarms went off. I don't think it's the hotel's fault though.
If you want a little history stay, this place is it. This place is great old school hotel with the oldest bar in town. Has a nice pool and inner garden to chill. Nice helpful staff Rooms were clean and large. The shower could have stronger flow and pool service coming around a bit (there is a phone to place order) but that is not a big deal. Location is perfect - Riverwalk starts right here and Alamo is a cross the street Can't open windows in the room (the old bulding) Shower has weak water flow
Central Location: Beautiful 150 year old historic hotel, literally across the street from Alamo, Numerous attractions, Riverwalk Mall, Ripley's, Wax Museum, Guinness Records, etc.... Short trolley ride to Historic Market. We used it as base of operations. Bought all-day passes to attractions and walked back to hotel to cool off/swim when needed. Lots of food nearby too. Hotel staff gave great service too. Kids loved all the museum like stuff in the hotel. The bar has a mirror with a bullet hole next to it they say Teddy Roosevelt shot in it on a bet when he was there recruiting his rough riders. Been here several times. It is our 'go to' spot for San Antonio. The parking is very expensive. Thirty dollars per day - but it is expensive in the entire city and you do have unlimited in and out privileges. The hotel is really old so it has a few rough edges. The pool tiling needs a bit of repair, some of the doors stick a bit, the elevators are small, floors are a little uneven and a bit sloped here and there, etc. It has a lot of "character", but I guess refurbishing an old hotel is like restoring an old car, you never quite manage to get all of the rattles out of it.
The historic portion of the hotel is beautiful! Rooms are small,full size bed... but very nice and very clean. I would like to suggest that better quality sheets be used on the bed... sheets were way to big, so they tangled up at your feet. The beds are not the most comfortable to begin with and the sheets only made it worse.
The hotel's location can't be beat: a block away from the Alamo, a couple blocks away from the convention center, and right next to a shopping mall with a wide variety of restaurants and stores. The staff was very friendly. The room worked for what I needed, but it could have been better. The bathroom was small and was, for some reason, built 6-8 inches higher than the rest of the room. You could hear everything through the walls.
The staff and the place are great !
Great hotel overall. I rated it down because the valet situation gave me hell a few times. Give yourself plenty of time for valet to get your car, especially when it's raining.
Bed was comfortable Bed corners are very dangerous, I end up with bruises because bed woods expand from mattress and you can hit your legs easily unless you are very careful. I had the opportunity to talk to other guests and they complain about the same dangerous corners. Bathroom have to many gabs on counter and your personal products can fall while cleaning is happening and you will never find them. If your leave something you have to go to a website to file lost and found. That is very far from what is the main reason of hotels, customer service...... Very poor in that part. Most rooms the city view is the windows of the next building.
We had nothing but trouble with Kayak and Getaroom. The Getaroom staff, in fact, was terrible. I will never use Kayak or Getaroom ever again. The Valencia was great, though. Wonderful staff.
Everything was great. The staff are all amazing and go above and beyond to make your stay even better. I will definitely be coming back. The only thing that was annoying was how exspensive the things were in your room mini bar.
Staff was unprofessional. Check in was at 3, we got there at 7 and the room still wasnt ready. While we waited for 45 minutes we had to get dressed in the public restroom and my girlfriend had to straighten her hair in the hallway because there was no outlets in the restroom. After we finally got our room we had to rush to the spurs gsme that we had planned and ended up missing the first quarter all because of the staff at the hotel. We decided to switch hotels the next day. Other than that the hotel was really nice looking.
We have traveled often and frequently. We arrived and found that the best service, ambience, and dining was apparent. Our room was perfect, room for our luggage, etc. Can't wait to return.
I liked the friendliness of the staff, the attentiveness of the staff always willing to help. Hilda the housekeeper kept the room cleanliness very well and orderly. I am happy with my experience. It was a great location right on the river walk.
Great location since we could walk a block and a half to the majestic theater. Beautiful room, nice view, but the restaurant was closed for dinner and the breakfast was $63 dollars.

We really appreciated the location of the hotel, it was really convenient in that sense, it was within walking distance to many attractions and restaurants. The staff was also really friendly. Almost everything was perfect, but it would have been nice to have a mini fridge in the room to store our own food and drinks. Also one of our beds was squeaky and that made it uncomfortable to sleep on so better beds would have been nice.
We waited 30 minutes for our car after check out. CALL AHEAD...way ahead!
Location was great Kind of dark interior needs brightening.
location is great, staff was friendly hotel is under renovation. any and all pictures you find on line are completely inaccurate or downright deceptive. even the official website shows a hotel that does not look anything like this one. rooms have no soundproofing so you hear EVERYTHING. bathrooms look institutional, ceiling tiles hanging out of the hallway ceilings, etc.... the place is a mess, loud and not very pleasant to stay at. only saving grace was we didn't spend much time in the room.
The location. Within walking distance to the Riverwalk and The Alamo. Also many fine restaurants located nearby. Also, the staff was very friendly and accomodating. The hotel is in the process of a big time renovation. There was a slight inconvenience at times because of construction dust and noise and elevator shutdowns.
Hotel had large rooms very clean. Staff was very helpful and friendly
Location Staff was very unhelpful and place was really dirty and loud besides the room because it was under construction.
Close to Riverwalk, Alamo. Good breakfast, Service Despite rebuilding activities a good stay is possible. Compensated by excellent free lunch for two Warm water shower not on temperature.
We really enjoyed our stay.
Location was great and the staff that was working was excellent This was not up to Wyndham standards. Was still under construction which was not indicated on the site. Restaurant was temporary and staffing almost non- existent . Things were old and not updated in the rooms.
Friendly staff, excellent sized rooms, convenience of location to major city attractiions, quick response to issues. Shame about the construction, but that is a fact of life re hotel lifecycle.
We loved the hotel. It was very beautiful and clean. Even tho they were renovating we didn't hear a thing. The staff was magnificent and always helpful. We will be staying there again. Only if we get a room with a view of the park. Lol
The staff was great. Food was good. Great location The hotel in under renovation and it didn't look as nice as it have looked. I realize is an older hotel and it's good that they are renovating. Just wished I was there after renovations were completed. I was not aware of construction when I booked.
Air conditioner in the room would not cool below 74 degrees. Too warm to sleep comfortably.
The only thing we did like was the fact that it might be haunted. I have pictures if globs of hair in the drain and strands if hair on the sink faucet and floor.
Room, location, close to activities All good
Beautiful room friendly staff
Overall clean Downtown and river walk location. Valet parking should be part of the overall expense. Coffee machine wasn't maintained. Mini bar wasn't inexistent however an offer sheet is advertised.
Great Stay! Room was clean, spacious, and beds were comfortable.
Excellent hotel with a nice view of the Riverwalk. The room and restaurant were first class and the staff was very helpful. Well worth the money The only problem we saw was around the pool where there was debris and refuse but there were also a lot of inebriated people there when we got there which might account for stuff on the ground and in the pool.
Yes The view
Got there about 11 am. Had a nice clean room ready for use. Staff was friendly. Had a free shuttle to take use to the river walk so we were save in an area we did not know. Not thing. Everything was great
Fairly convenient location, within a short walk of market Square, slightly longer walk from Alamo. Heavily stained carpet, hair in bathtub, dirty toilet, peeling wallpaper. Needs updating and throrough cleaning.
The staff was friendly and very helpful Internet was difficult to login to and wasn't a very good connection
Bed&linens were very clean and comfy. 4 pillows per bed! The staff was friendly from the front desk, to restaurant, to the maintenance guy who brought us pool towels. I was traveling my myself but had a couple friends visit to use the pool and it was great. Lots of families, but quiet rooms can't hear other guests Hot tub bubbles were broken.
It was the best The fact it was so clean and friendly !!!
Free parking and shuttle service were very pleasant surprises based on previous stays in San Antonio. Loooong walk to our room
The staff was nice except for housekeeping. The location was nice. Parking was good. Housekeeping staff were rude. The pool was dirty, the rooms are poorly ventilated. Woke up and everything in the room was damp. The carpets in the room were nasty and stained. The staff started vacuuming the hallways at 9:30 at night while my kids were sleeping. The kiddy pool tile was crumbling.
I thought the location would have been closer to the river walk
Close to downtown Internet connection was terrible. Mold coming out of our AC. No ice machine on our floor. Carpets were dirty. Bed was not so comfy.
I thought that the facility was clean and comfortable. Staff that we encountered were all pleasant. We visited during remodeling so check-in was a bit odd. I also thought the shuttle service was a bit weak. There are so many places to travel in San Antonio that market square seems like an irrelevant spot to travel too being that it is only 2 blocks away.
The price was right. The place was worn and old, the facilities need a considerable upgrade. Also, the site, though near the Riverwalk, isn't as close as it seems from the description, and is in a bit of an industrial neighborhood. The hotel was also understaffed, and there were long wait times for any service at the front desk, especially close to checkout time.
Clean, friendly. I was happy with our stay. There wasn't any continental breakfast available...
The view and customer service was great! No microwave or fridge. Not very clean. Found hair on our beds and some towels. Mold in shower and in sink.
The people working on cleanup (Maid) she make A really good job Just one people working on that the front desk she look so happy on she jop look
Staff was great and location to the river walk was perfect. Hot tub was way too hot to use and pool was too cold to use. Everything else was ok. The hotel is clean but much like the rest of Texas, nothing has been updated since the 80's.
Clean updated rooms. Bathrooms could use to be renovated some. Or at least clean the tile
We only stayed for one night so this was perfect. I like how they had an option for gel body wash instead of the bar soap that leaves your skin feeling kind of tight. I like how the valet guy suggested we park for free on the street instead of spending money on valet since we would be there for one night. That was really helpful and he seemed to genuinely care for us to save $$$! We are a young couple and brought our 5 year old so every bit counts. The walk from the boardwalk was only about 10-15 minutes but still fairly close to the hotel. We came earlier than our check in and when I asked the front desk if our room was ready so we could possibly check in early she seemed to have kind of an attitude. We mainly came out to swim and when we went swimming the bottom of the pool felt as if it were coming up? Like as if there was a film covering the pool which was kind of interesting. While in the hot tub there was a couple smoking pot which was not okay, seeing that there were children and families everywhere. When the staff came out to check it out he did not do anything or tell them anything. The couple had thrown whatever they were smoking off the roof so they weren't caught with it but it was fairly obvious that they were smoking. I thought that they would've handled it differently but the staff member seemed okay with the situations and even told the other staff me ever that everything was okay....when that was definitely not.
Location - location - location - right on the Riverwalk. Conference facility was well laid out and easy to navigate and handled our 300 attendees well. Concierge was very nice and helpful, as was transportation staff. Food was above average, especially a lunch that was part of our conference. Had a billing problem that hotel desk staff (including manager) seemed unwilling/unable to resolve. Problem rested with the hotel, but I had to go to our conference coordinator to finally take care of it. Unnecessary run around that should have been quickly resolved. Room WiFi normally requires extra fee ($9.95/day). Only free in the lobby. Luckily, my conference arranged free WiFi for attendees. Seems a poor method of getting a little more money out of a guest.
The view was amazing and the room was very clean and home like The location was a little sketchy the hidden room fees and they gave us a different room than what we originally booked we booked a deluxe suit and the hotel just gave us a random room and said they did not receive our reservations even tho we booked weeks in advance.
I didn't know that when we made our reservation that we had been sent to a third party site. My fiancé had an emergency at work and we needed to reschedule. The hotel was fine with it, but it had to be done through the booking site . Unfortunately the booking site wouldn't allow it. We lost our money I will never book a hotel with kayak again. Nothing
Great location The bed was uncomfortable. I got a discounted rate thru booking.com and still paid too much for this room. The bed was hard and creaked. I would expect this at a cheaper destination but for $190+ per night this is just unacceptable. Also, who charges $30 a night plus tax for parking? IN SAN ANTONIO?? Who are you trying to fool? We know space is not this much of a commodity. Felt ripped off. Will absolutely not stay here again, and I'm definitely avoiding the Wyndham name in the future.
Valet was wonderful, staff was very friendly. Easy to get in/out of hotel. "River Walk" entertainment area was within 10 minutes. The river walk portion it is close to is far from the "River Walk" entertainment district. Room had black hair on the ceiling in the bathroom.
The room was nice and clean and we had a view of the riverwalk from the room. Wifi was free, not all hotels in the area offer free WiFi. The wait for the elevators at checkout time were intense. We were on the 20th floor and ended up taking the stairs all the way down bc the elevator was full every single time it came to our floor.
Location to riverwalk Cleanliness of the room was disappointing
The hotel has a great location on the riverwalk in a quieter area next to the mall. The room we had (handicap) was very large, and the bed was comfortable. The lobby was nice, there was a starbucks in the lobby, and the food at the bar and restaurant were good. This was one of the biggest hotel disappointment I've had in the past. year. I traveled over 200 days in the past year and stayed at quite a few different hotels, so I don't say this lightly. When we first walked into the room (905 handicapped) the bathroom stood out as an eyesore. It was at least 5-10 years past when it should have been renovated. The grout was multiple different colors that made it look like it could be moldy, the wallpaper was peeling from the walls, and there was a general lack of craftmanship in the way it was constructed. The final straw was when I went to take a shower, and the shower head connection was leaking and spraying water in all directions. It wasn't just a loose connection, because I was unable to stop the leak. This is something a guest should never have to deal with at a chain like the Marriott. I asked the front desk to be transferred, but because it was a busy time the only available room was the room below us (805). This bathroom was in slightly better condition, although there were a few cracked and chipped tiles. Although the shower head worked, it was a very low end and cheap looking model. The bigger problem was when my wife tried to take a shower the first night, she was unable to maintain a constant water temperature. It would alternate between cold and very hot. She showed me how red her feet were, and I can only imagine what sort of a problem this could pose to an elderly or handicapped person. The other problem was the terrible tv reception while we were trying to watch the sugar bowl in our room. It would constantly blur or pause, making it nearly impossible to watch the game. Fortunately or unfortunately, the reception on the large tv's at the bar was fine. In summary, this is not the type of property I would expect for a Marriott. For the time around the new year the value wasn't bad (just under 200) however I would have preferred to spend 50% more on a room that looked like it had been renovated in the past 10-20 years. In the past year the only time I have experienced bathrooms in this sort of condition were in $50 rooms in towns with less than 5000 people. Buyer beware.
Was impressed by everything... I think I heard some unexplainable noises during the night ... Nice location
Location is great right in the heart of San Antonio next to the Alamo. Room was clean but very small. Trying to reach front desk and room service repeatedly at night and no answer. Finally answer and the late night food was just quickie microwaved crap. We couldn't even eat it.
Location, location, and location! Hotel is right across the Alamo with plenty of cheap public parking around the area. Also, the warm chocolate chips cookies from the front desk are a plus. Outdated hotel facility and Kayak's incorrectly rated hotel stars do not match the overpriced money for my stay.
Cookie!!!! Wife liked cookie!!! It was a very nice experience me an my wife enjoyed it greatly No microwave in rooms or fridge.
The location was great. Short walk to the convention center, riverwalk, alamo. The staff was also very friendly and nice. The building is old and the rooms show it. My first night there was a some fan, or machinery noise that made it impossible to sleep. I was able to switch rooms that night which was nice. One morning I had no hot water. The staff listened, but didn't seem concerned about it. I only had one breakfast at the hotel restaurant, but it was quite underwhelming and definitely not worth paying for.
The view from the room was fantastic! The location is also great! The room felt like it needed to be steam cleaned with bleach... The room appeared to be updated sometime in the early 2000. But has not been maintained well. The bed was as hard as the floor. The shower head was loose and the bathroom smelled of old urine. We ordered Breakfast to our room the first morning. The breakfast was good and when we where ready to leave for the day I called to let the staff know so they could come up and clean our room. We where gone the entire day and come back to the same mess we left that morning... At 250 a night plus 30 a night valet parking This should have never happened. That night I went to drink a water bottle the staff provides for you in the room and there was no seal on the lid on either bottle. The cleaning person didn't even bother to change our water bottles. just filled them up with tap water and called it a day. If you are looking for a clean room with basic hotel services I would look past this place!!
Valet was $35 ...should have been included with hotel
This hotel was very nice! Our room was ready when expected and they placed us with a corner room with a great view, for no extra cost. Staff were great and the check in/check out process was so simple! The location could not have been better for the main attractions, such as the Alamo and Riverwalk. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.
Everything I think the parking at $30 a night is a little too pricey.
Great location. Comfortable view. Parking was difficult. I wish the stay came with parking instead of having to use valet. I had to pay for valet and to park right outside each day as I have to have quick access to my car. Although it was a nice hotel, I won't be staying here again.
Although I was stuck with the smallest room they have it was still cozy and comfortable. Also they were also low staffed but despite that they were still friendly. I thought the valet was overpriced and they should at least allow one free parking per reservation
Location Could not think of anything we did not like
Location Bathroom was filthy, the food in the restaurant was terrible
- At $230 a night it was a below average hotel.
The staff was great. The rooms were clean. Even when house keeping forgot to clean our room twice, they sent someone over immediately to clean it up. The breakfast attendants were super friendly, especially Rudy. The breakfast could use better variety of fruit and swich the sausage with ham once in a while. The pool was so cold, I thought icebergs were forming.
the location 1. the 25usd/day for parking 2. the parking fee announced upon check out only 3. the not very pet-friendly 4. the state of the room
I loved everything but most of all the valet Chris who took such good care of two old women...his mother would be so proud of him. Please if you can tell him Mrs. Whitehead and Mrs. Nall so appreciate all he did for us.
The beds were very comfortable, and the view was great Air conditioner dripped a puddle onto the floor, and 25 bucks a day to park my own car... just to have trees drop berries all over it that stank so bad... then birds eat them and poop all over the car too. I got to drive away angry after a relaxing weekend.
Valet, Joe, was very helpful and friendly.
Everything is good If you are going to advertise free breakfast then do it
The coffee was good & it Was convenient to Riverwalk and Alamo. Walking Distance The door was hard to open and close because of the deadbolt. Kept getting stuck. Paper thin walls, you have to pay for parking and the safe in your room also Some of the staff was rude.
Was convenient to Riverwalk and Alamo. Walking Distance. The door was hard to open and close because of the deadbolt. Kept getting stuck. The sink faucet was about to fall off and the hot water barely came out. The sink was free standing and not any room to put anything around it. The shower head was so strong you could hardly stand under it. We were only able to get very few channels on the tv. On the vending machines you could only use a credit or debit card. I thought was inconvenient. We did report this all to the front desk as we left and they said these issues would be fixed. I hope so because it could be a very nice, convenient place to stay.
Great location for the money. Very dirty floors. Sheets had to be changed they were filthy. Not a good experience. Front staff w were nice but housekeeping was a joke...
Location The bed linen was cover in stains, the walls had stains and what looked like mildew. The shower was disgusting plus the water came out with such force it hurt. The floors were filthy so don't walk around barefoot. Hotel said they underwent an upgrade, but definitely doesn't look like it. Free breakfast is a joke. Will NEVER stay at this hotel again.
Perfect for a night in downtown SA.
Nothing to like here. The internet service in my 5th floor room was poor. Then the crickets moved in. I killed three of them and counted 5 more down the hall from me. While I was at the font desk talking about the lack of Wifi, two very angry women guests came down to check out because of all the bugs. The interior is worn and does not present as clean. There was a puddle of water in the middle of the floor. They offered me a room on the second floor where the Wifi was better but even to my male nose, this room smelled stale. I decided I'd seen enough and many thanks to Kayak for getting me out of this mess and into the Best Western Sunrise Suites (1 block away). Same price range and a high quality hotel. BEWARE THE RED ROACH INN!
Staff was rude. Door was missing the bottom liner so you could hear everyone that walked by.
Everything was good, and it was a surprise. I went in thinking it was a real dive, based on the reviews I read after booking my room. I was there for 3 nights and I cant complain about a single thing, rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, staff were really friendly, and it looks to be quite a new motel, or has been recently renovated. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone! Cant say anything bad, it is a 2 star hotel that is more like a 3 star. The rates were not cheap, but seeing as there was a convention in town, it was a whole lot cheaper than nearby hotels. If I had to take a guess, some bad reviewers either got some real bad staff attitude or they expected 4 star service.
Overall nice clean hotel for the price That we had to pay $15 daily for parking
Walking distance to downtown (riverwalk/Alamo) but its a sketchy area if you are alone. Many homeless and cat callers around. Rooms were modern and looked just like the pictures. Staff was friendly and helpful Sheets were dirty, asked for new ones and we're still dirty. Add on extra charges after initial booking fee, must pay for parking, ADA accessible restroom was constantly wet. Showers must run for ten minutes before water heats up, refrigerator didn't work, roach came out of restroom drain.
Walking distance to alamadome for events. sorry breakfast. slow maintenance. we had a slow drain in the tub and reported it everyday and it still was not fixed when we left.
