Clean and comfortable bed.

by George-of-Pinawa on 04 Jan 2015 (Couple Traveller)

Our room was very clean, and the king size bed was comfortable. The location provided walking access to downtown. However there was not much else going for it. The location was noisy (traffic noise). The heater made the room either VERY hot, or cold--we couldn't get it to achieve a reasonable temperature. There were 2 bath towels, but only one hand towel and one face cloth. There were no extras in the way of microwave oven, refrigerator, or iron, except there was a hair dryer. A room key require...

A diamond in the rough

by Frank K on 18 May 2014 (Business Traveller)

If you're on a budget and need a secure, quiet and clean place to stay in San Antonio's downtown area, this place is it. I've stayed at the River Inn quite a few times over the years and never had any problems. In fact the owner Umesh, is quite an entertaining person who also cares about the comfort of his guests. I'm sure you would agree that owners and managers of most smaller properties rarely say anything to their guests. To me, that makes a huge difference when I stay at a hotel or motel.

Friday night bed bugs

by Maria V on 18 Mar 2014 (Friends Traveller)

I requested a room with two double beds and was initially given a king size bed with mirrors everywhere and a beach painted on the walls. Not our kind of room. We asked to be switched and were given a different room. There was no undersheet covering the mattress and instead there was just a regular sheet that you slept on under the cover blanket. We think we got bed bugs from this motel since there was easy access for the bugs from the mattress. Cheapest motel we found near the riverwalk but you...

Good luck if you can sleep

by Raul B on 05 Jun 2013 (Friends Traveller)

When my and my friend arrived in the afternoon for check-in we were a little bit scared about the place. It is really the kind of area you should expect a gunfight. The room was nice and the A/C worked really good. But in the room next to ours, a couple was discussing, working and having sex during the whole night. My friend could not sleep at all. Not only because of the noise, but also because he was scared someone breaking the window and ask for our belongings. Only good point, cheap and clos...

I stay at the motel, when I come down from Houston,tx to visit family and friends. I like the location, it's very close to IH 35, IH10. The people who run motel are very friendly. The location and price of rooms, I think are a very good deal. Stayed over 10 times haven't had no problem, nice place to kickback, also a/c units keep the room nice cold.
