Room was fine but the entrance to parking smelled strongly of smoke and hallways also smelled funky. Walls are thin and you can hear the train outside and other guests

Front desk attendant was confused at check in and took forever to make a room switch. Hotel was not very clean. Work out facility was disgusting. $20 a night for parking??? Not sure what other options there are for travelers so it felt like a hidden expense.

Thank you for your review of your recent stay. It is unfortunate that parking was not to your preferences as parking in San Antonio is limited and our USD 19.99 fee is minimal compared to many other hotels in the area. We apologize for this misconception, though the price is listed on our Travelocity page for the convenience of our guests. We have also passed your concerns about your room and our service along for review and hope to see you again for an even better experience.

I didn't like at all of the smell of spry fragrance at the hall way (after get out from the elevator to my room #415) and inside the room. The smell of the spray too strong and not a decent fragrance make both of us headache. They should used the fragrance that lighter or none. So, I had to lowest the air conditioner to remove the unpleasant away from my room. The environment should be fell clean air. All other are good, and just steps from River Walk.

I like that just right across the street is the riverwalk. Inside all of the plant life gives it a similar feel to the riverwalk environment. It is a little dated in the hallways, but the rooms were more modern. The showers in the rooms were very disappointing and the tub didn't drain well at all

The "river view" is a view of the river in the simplest form. There is nothing but concrete and water. Don't be fooled by the river view option. Also a 50/50 chance you'll get a balcony you can go out on. if you are able, request a room with a balcony. Parking is crazy and very small spot. Be careful if you have anything larger than a sedan. Didn't get a chance to try out the other amenities like the pool.
