Location is off interstate. Rooms in very back buildings are quiet. Check in staff were very helpful and changed our room . We reserved Non smoking but 1st room reeked even though it was NON SMOKING. Next room was fine. Clean and a comfortable bed. Free parking but no Wifi. Tub needs to be replaced along with the flooring. Still,...

Front desk ladies are very friendly but I will never stay at this hotel again! 1st room they placed us in was dirty, non smoking room but the sheets had cigarette holes. Our final room was better, floors looked unkept and Only had thin sheets to sleep. Would not recommend. 2 stars because the customer service was great but hotel...

Worst place in San Antonio to stay. Plumbing rarely works. Loud. Smells. Beds are dirty. Staff is rude. Office closes at 9:00 pm. Just plain NASTY. I will never be coming back to this place. I'd rather sleep under a bridge. I never saw the manager on site

They seriously need to scrub. A new can of paint would help. Hair left on on the floor. At least the keys worked. They had no nonsmoking rooms. But I did not smell anything. The TV channel selection was poor

Normally, when my wife and I go to San Antonio two or three times a year, we stay with relatives. But due to circumstances, we decided to stay at a motel on our last trip and, not only visit with relatives, but go out to eat and site-see downtown before going home. Since the Motel 6 - Ft. Sam Houston,...

Newly remodeled Motel 6 which sits next to numerous fast food restaurants. Check in was a little slow but I contribute that to the clerks being very "Texas" friendly and wanting to talk. Check out was quick. Room I had was very quiet(3rd floor) and this location does have elevators to make the trip up/down easier on your joints. Only...

I checked into this Motel6 because i usually have great experiences with them. Friendly staff, safe locations, clean. The orange rooms are ugly, but I can easily get over that. The location here is unfortunately not the best and not the worst. Since I was traveling alone with my daughter, I would have felt safer at a different location. It...

Very nice motel, and the staff was very helpful and professional. The rooms are all renovated and up to date, for the price u can't find any place better. They have good security on property in the evening and he is always visible.

We stayed at this hotel because we are relocating to San Antonio and arrived very late at night. The manager, who is very rude, even refused to let me throw my trash on the property; he said he was going to charge me. We needed to extend our stay, Long story short, he told us he wasn't going to rent...
