This hotel is foreboding on the outside, as you take in the bars on the front windows, as is appropriate for a jailhouse, which this building was for decades from the late 19th century until 1962, Apparently it was remodeled and opened as a motel in 1962. I stayed on the second floor, and found it eerie to know that...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 6 March 2017

everything met my expectations. the one thing i was not expecting was that this hotel is a former jail. I booked directly through holiday inn's website and missed the part where it's described as a renovated jail. the guest checking in in front of me was excited about this and was telling me all about the ghost stories he'd read,...

Stayed at this hotel with my girlfriend the last few days of April. My daughter had booked it for us and when I read some of the reviews on Trip Advisor I had some concerns. I was very pleasantly surprised from the time we arrived. There is no onsite parking but the valet service was excellent and the parking was...

This hotel, which is located in a historical jail building although you wouldn't know it from appearances, was a great place to stay. I was in San Antonio one night and spent both days sightseeing. I got there in the morning, before check-in time, and the hotel had the valet park my car and let me leave my suitcase behind...

I didn't know until I checked in that this building was the county jail for over 100 years. Apparently they even did executions inside of it. I'm a huge scaredy cat, so that kind of freaked me out. I had a nice stay overall though. The daytime staff was super nice. The nighttime staff was a bit less so-- the...

Off the beaten path, but still close to everything. Nice staff, nice breakfast spread in the morning. Huge rooms. Only one elevator and it can seemingly take forever to get to you. Good A/C, good water pressure in the shower. Only two complaints: 1. As we were leaving to go downstairs for breakfast on our last day, there were two...

Very nicely decorated and clean hotel. Staff was very friendly. The is no parking at this location other than paid parking which can be added to your bill. It's not expense compared to other parking options around town. The beds were very comfortable and the room was extremely clean. Only issue I had was check in was at 3 pm....

Great position within walking distance from Alamo and river walk. Had to pay $17 for parking, which was valet parking at car park elsewhere as hotel has no car park on site. Had to ask for bedding for sofa bed for children a few times. Breakfast mediocre with limited space as renovations going on.

My husband and I really had great time. The location was great and was walking distance to a lot of awesome places. The staff was friendly and went above and beyond to ensure satisfaction with our stay. The bed was comfortable and the rooms were really clean. The breakfast was really good as well.

There is a lot of construction going on around the area, you have to get valet parking & it costs a little extra...not a big deal. The room was very clean and a lot of space! The pool is small and there isn't a hot tub but defiantly a great spot to cool off! We were just here a night...
