Good for the price and clean. Here is a suggestion though.....having traveled extensively this is a general suggestion to all Patel property's. If you don't know how to cook without curry, don't cook for your guests

The room was very large and clean. Bed was comfy. TV in bedroom was snowy and no movie channels but wifi internet was fast. Only downside was we were caught off guard by $150 deposit required because we booked thru a 3rd party web site rather than theirs. We would stay there again.

I stayed here for my son's basketball tournament. The rooms are huge. It has a full kitchen with stove and full sized fridge. the beds were a little hard but not too bad. plenty of space to spread out in the room. It has a living room seperate of the beds. It looks like they had recently done some renovations... More

Pretty good for the price, friendly helpful staff and clean room, although they need to do a better job cleaning around the furniture and in the corners. There were two separate areas in the room with a queen bed in each one. The room also had a full sized refrigerator and a small stove and sink. The location is close... More

Easy to find and in a quiet enough location. Room was very spacious, had a small kitchenette and lots of storage for our family of 4. Our room was clean, comfortable and cool. Everything worked and we had no real problems during our stay. It worked for us as a good "home base" during our visit to San Antonio. Only... More

I got this hotel through Priceline's express hotel deal, and both priceline and this hotel messed it up big time. To begin with, Priceline advertised it as '2Q suite', and it was not actually suite. There are 2 room kind of spaces in the room, but they put each bed in those spaces and my family had to sleep separated... More

Price was fair for month long stay during San Antonio Rodeo. Close to ATT center for commute. Bathroom was HUGE. Good lighting, 2 tvs, comfortable beds, plenty of towels. Good value for price. We were comfortable being there for so long. Nice to have small kitchen to cook food. Carpet was dated and some stains but overall average. I booked... More

What I liked: 1) My room was very nice overall. It was big, and it appeared as though there had been recent remodeling done. 2) The staff was very friendly. What I didn't like: 1) Even though the room was nice, the rest of the hotel needs work. The carpet in the hallways really needs to be replaced. 2) My... More

Large room with separate living and bed area. Living room has couch, nice chairs, desk. Two queen beds in bedroom. I was in a suite with Jacuzzi. Everything is comfortable and roomy. Carpets in the stairways are stained badly. Biggest issue here is TV situation. Old-style flat screen TVs in living and bed area. Not HDMI TVs, so of course... More

This place is about 35 minutes from Six Flags Fiesta Texas, about 15 or 20 minutes from the Riverwalk, and about 10-15 minutes from the closest Walmart. Overall this is an okay hotel, just not worth the price (specially not the one shown on their website). Eventhough the room is spacious, once you sit on the bed, the whole magic... More
