Very clean and well maintained. A little challenge to access as you have to go past hotel and make a U-Turn and access from service road. Nearby restaurants like Saltgrass Steakhouse. One of the most personable and efficient check-ins. I believe the front desk person's name was Gloria. She did an outstanding job. She had my IHG bonus points posted...

Amenities were awesome, staff was very helpful and nice. Room was very clean. Thomas at the front desk was awesome. I did not take advantage of the pool, but the free parking definitely came in handy. Seeing as San Antonio is so huge- A car rental is a must.

I was in town working. I first tried a extended stay that was further away and dirty. After talking with the manager to work out a nightly rate I moved in. I was there 23 days with no issues.

I have to say the room had some unusual issues such as phone cord broken, iron marks in the carpet, broken wheel on the chair, stained bed skirt, broken sink stop, and insects in the bathroom. However, I told Emily, the desk clerk. When I came back to the room I had a new phone cord, a new chair, the...

Had a great stay, hotel employee was very friendly, the room was clean and they allowed some guests to stay in pool after closing. I was a bit surprised that a Holiday Inn would charge for extra towels, which I thought was rediculous, but luckily we didn't need any.

We chose this place as they had some price promotion via Hotels.com. Compared to the motels we've been staying the last few nights, it was comparable in terms of comfort, layout and convenience. It was easy to get to and fro from SeaWorld, and there were restaurants nearby. The bedrooms were clean and spacious. The Wifi was quite poor though....
