We chose to stay at this location because of the reviews. Cost efficient, great location and shuttle service to the river walk. We decided to use the shuttle service to go to the River Walk. We had no problems getting there but getting picked up is another story. Bottom line nice hotel but drive or walk.

Not as pricey as the downtown San Antonio hotels but you do save. On the plus side, clean hotel, friendly staff, and pretty quiet (compared to the River walk, a busy airport is quiet). On the minus, a good trek to downtown and not lot of restaurants close by. So for families with children, you would need to drive. But...

This Holiday Inn Express is located just east of I-37 on the east side of downtown San Antonio. I gave the hotel four stars for a number of reasons, including the very friendly, helpful staff, clean comfortable room, full, tasty breakfast, and especially the shuttle service to downtown attractions. Although other reviewers have mentioned that is is within walking distance...

My daughter and I spent a month in the USA. We stayed in a good variety of hotels, mostly 4 and 5 star. This was the least expensive we chose in the whole time and was by far the BEST.

We stayed for 2 nights after coming from San Diego. As soon as we got there we loved the atmosphere of the Hotel. It was within easy walking distance to the shopping centre (12-15 mins) and the Riverwalk or you could take the free Hotel shuttle. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. We wished we could have stayed longer!...

It was very easy to get here from the airport even though they do not have their own shuttle service. What they do have, however, is a shuttle that will take you to the River Walk or the Alamo free of charge all day long. Everyone who worked there was just so very nice! The internet was slow, but the...

Stayed here the night before the Rock & Roll Marathon on 12/6-12/7 - the staff was so flexible and accommodating with regard to adjusting breakfast availability times and check-out for runners. It was quiet, clean, comfortable, and RIGHT AT THE START LINE! Couldn't ask for more!

Thank you for your comments! We are always excited to see so many dedicated runners when it comes to marathons in the downtown area. And setting up breakfast a little earlier than usual was the least we could do to show our appreciation for your efforts! Congratulations on your run and we hope to see you again real soon!

I was in San Antonio on business and found this hotel to be well located, clean, modern and VERY quiet. Well situated close to I-37 and downtown San Antonio. At most, about 10-15 minutes from SAT airport and 5 minutes drive from downtown. Staff were very friendly, accomodating and helpful throughout my stay.
