Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry about the beehives, they are notorious this time of year! We will definitely get them taken care of. Thanks for letting us know. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay otherwise, and we hope to see you again soon.

Room With A View

Pros: We enjoyed the view of the little town from our back porch of our room.
Cons: The grounds looked like they needed some attention.
Location: Perfect place to stay near San Antonio for Seaward or spend the day in the little town down the hill going to all of the little shops.
Very friendly office staff greeted us and were very helpful. The room was decorated with old photos from the town down the hill.Very nice.

Great Hotel just close enough to San Antonio

Pros: Beautifully landscaped property with plenty of parking!
Cons: A complimentary breakfast would be nice!
Location: Plenty of history in this little town! Great antique shops and little boutiques.
I was pleasantly surprised! The room was large and very comfortable and had a balcony with a great view! Very quiet place on the outskirts of a very charming little town! I will definitely stay there again!

real nice location

Pros: location, looking over medina valley
Cons: would love to see a garden spa tub in that big ole tiled bathroom, and nice chairs on the balcony. the chairs outdoors were the adirondacks
Location: i loved the overlook and watching birds and deer....if we left , it was to eat nearby
this trip was all about R&R and thats what we got......a nice room with good beds and a good tv...we ate all our meals around town. The bathroom toilet is a low to the ground and your knees do get a workout.

It was quiet, serene and peaceful.

Pros: Its serenity.
Cons: Their breakfast.
Location: South of San Antonio and near Natalia where we picked up our newest member to our family, a 12 week German Shepherd puppy.
It was a wonderful experience and I do plan to go back again.
