Just left the Alamo motel two days ago. First let me say that you can never please some people no matter what . I for one was very happy staying at the Alamo. Yes the exterior isn't the greatest, but when you get into the room and see how clean it is you forget about the outside.The breakfast nook is... More

I was coming back from a bowl game at the downtown Alamodome which is about one mile away from this motel. I was stuck in heavy traffic and wasn't able to get into the hotel until about 1:30 in the morning. The staff was very helpful and accommodating even though we arrived so late. As far as the room goes,... More

I had to make a last minute trip to San Antonio, and wanted something cheap. I knew I would only be spending time in my room to sleep, as I would be having fun on the Riverwalk. I booked this online for $40 ($49 w/ tax), and wasn't expecting much. I was very pleasantly surprised. The neighborhood itself is not... More

We stayed here several times now and were here again two weeks ago. Very nice and clean. Had done some improvements since our stay last year. Comfortable king size bed, refridgerator, microwave and coffee maker. Flat screen TV. Nice, new rocker recliner that was a plus!!! Complimentary breakfast included. (Even some of your chain motels don't offer this!!!) No pool,... More

We needed a last minute hotel after SeaWorld and booked The Alamo Inn for it's price. Don't let that part of town or the outside of the building fool you, both the service and the room were great. We will definitely call again if we need a San Antonio hotel.

This hotel looks OK on paper. The reality is much different. Its dirty, run down, poorly managed, and a property to be avoided. It is touted as bei8ng close to the Riverwalk, with a free shuttle service. True enough. You can't wait to get of a a neiborhood with a bail bondsman business as a next door neighbor. Trust me...

We thought this room was a good price and we were not expecting anything out of the box. It had a fridge, microwave, a table with two chairs and a reclining chair which was a bonus. The king bed was extremely comfortable. The room was clean but really needed a spring clean. I cleaned the phone before I used it... More

Booked on the internet, checked in, entered the room and left. Do I need to say more? At least I know that you cannot trust a room for under 40 dollars. Beat up, old furnitures. Not one single nite would I stay there. I know other low budget motels but this one was far the worst. And the front desk... More

“All rooms are "off the street" and we heard no street noise. Place is small with lots of parking. We were in an RV and there was loads of room. Lots of grass made it very nice.”
