Room was average. Old and cheaply done. Highway noise and other guest noise at night was very loud. Toilet was not fastened to floor. Refrigerator door opened opposite of cabinet door. No elevator. in spite of a very poor hotel facility, the staff was extremely friendly and polite.

Stayed for a Lackland graduation. Other family members stayed somewhere else and were jealous of our amenities. Breakfast every morning, new room, pool/spa open late and a great front desk that gave me directions, bus routes, and suggestions of where to go in the area. Would definitely stay here again.

Our stay was great. We were in town for an Airforce BMT graduation. Hotel was very clean and welcoming. The staff was great and the desk Manager, Stephen, was by far the best!! He went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. He even let our family use the breakfast area to sit and visit after graduation....

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights during our sons graduation from Air Force Boot Camp at Lackland Air Force base.

From parking to front desk, the hotel was awesome. I've stayed here before and would gladly stay here 10 years down the road. They seem to always keep it up, when walking to my room. Someone was touching up paint. So looks like they plan to keep it looking amazing!!
