There was an issue with my reserved room upon check in, although we thought it would be rectified the following day, it still wasn’t Ultimately we made the best of a bad situation However their General Manager took care of my concerns & made sure by the time I checked out, I was a satisfied customer

Because of him, I will rebook with this Holiday Inn I love great customer service♡He exceeded my expectations!

Driving up, it looked like a regular priced HiltonThe parking lot was super clean, spacious and well lit, as I got there at night As I entered the lobby, it was immaculate and huge

The outside doesn’t do it justice There was a bar area that reminded me of another hotel but this one looked even betterI got to the room and it was very spacious 2 king beds with room to spare The window took the full length of the wall The TV was a decent size as it was hung on the wall instead of being set on the dresser like some hotels There was certainly enough drawer space had I needed it There was a spacious “mini” fridge, a coffee maker and all sorts of appliancesThe bathroom was also spacious This bathroom had plenty of counter space and the towels were so fluffy There was even a towel rack inside the shower so you can hang your towel in there instead of hanging it on the curtain rod No, the towels don’t get wet while being on that towel rack eitherI had the best sleep there with the comfortable mattress and their just right pillows I will definitely return

Denise Denton

We loved this hotel!! The staff was very friendly, especially George He went out of his way to let us know we could check in at our earliest convenience (rather than the normal check-in time) Our room was clean and comfortable and we both slept wonderfully

Breakfast was what I would normally expect of a complimentary breakfast We loved it here and will definitely be visiting again in the future!

Darolyn Dann

Overnight desk clerk was VERY UNHELPFUL and acted like he really hates his job Our reservation through Hotelscom had issues and a single bed was booked instead of a double

Tried to appeal to hotel right after room was reserved, and the clerk (Yogi?) refused to assist with moving rooms, told us to book directly next timewhen he was telling us no is the only time you could hear satisfaction in his voiceWe went to the car to try & make calls & find alternatives to our reservation My husband needed to use the restroom, so he stepped back in the hotel to use the lobby bathrooms He asked where they were, the clerk directed him to them However the bathrooms were locked When my husband asked him to unlock the restrooms, the clerk looked him in the face and asked if he had a reservation and was staying with the hotelPetulant clerk, horrible customer serviceAt no time did the clerk attempt to assist in anyway, even seeing a family with kids Nothing offered as far as roll away beds, extra blankets for a floor pallet, nothingThis is someone that should not be in hospitalityIt was our first time using this hotel to visit family that moved recently to the area We are making sure all our friends, coworkers and family in the area know to avoid this hotelTry La Quinta next door instead!

Ernie Heyek

Nice hotel, but not a Plus It is a normal Best Western We stayed at a Best Western Plus in Pecos Texas which was awesome!! We thought all Plus’s were the same, apparently not

Pool wreaked of chlorine, which is not sanitary, so bad my eyes burned walking by it Overall it is a good place to stay Beds were comfortable, shower stream was strong and the breakfast was good

Located right off the freeway Easy to get to Front desk staff was very helpful and accommodating

The room was clean along with the bathroom Breakfast was well supplied At breakfast, the staff could have cleaned the tables in between parties to ensure cleanliness for the next guests Overall, great stay and I would consider staying there again in the future

Alyssa Allen

Lovely time spent at this hotel Was there for 4 nights and stayed on the 4th floor with my grandparents in 405 Didn’t hear a sound, which was nice

When we asked for more toilet paper, it took a while for someone to bring it to us, but other than that, everything was clean and well-keptShower didn’t shut off all the way, so we always had a drip in the bathroom, and the bathroom sliding door was REALLY hard to close all the way It got stuck on it’s track a few times and it’s a heavy door For two elderly people, it was difficult for them to shut all the way and muscle it closed or openThe beds and pillows were comfortable The breakfast was great! I loved that they had different flavor mixes for the waffles They always had normal, but on a couple days, they also had banana bread batter and cinnamon roll batter They switched up the proteins each day as well, which was nice The juices tasted great- not too sweet and not too watered down

Tanner McQuivey

The Homewood Suites by the San Antonio Airport was the best hotel I have stayed in First of all, our room was immaculate Everything was very clean and orderly

Next, the service was incredible We ran out of towels on day three and called for some more They came to our room immediately with fresh towels and an amazing attitude Additionally, the food was so good Usually, I don’t expect much from hotel breakfast’, but this one had everything I needed In the morning and at night, we really enjoyed using the exercise and pool facilities Everyone there was so friendly and helpful All of the guests at this hotel were just so kind and pleasant I will definitely stay at this hotel again!

Hello Itsme Bear

It is not what I expected for the brand name “Hilton”, the price & as a gold member The customer service was good & the rooms were spacious & niceNow the cleanness was not quit there

The elevator doors were damaged & buttons were filthy, not something that should be overlooked especially during these COVID times!I doubt the bedsheets were changed as a pillow case had a horrible brown stain on it & there were what appeared like pubic hairs between the sheets 🤮 The shower had mold & the shower curtain stains The glass turn table in the microwave was missing which caused our popcorn to cook uneven (The cleaning staff should be supervised!!)The fridge was a good size for those with extended stay The breakfast was really sad & tasted horrible There were apples turning brown in the fruit bowl, not very appealingThis Hilton hotel had more of a Best Western type feel to it, definitely not what I was looking for

S Morris

I read a bunch of reviews before booking and was unsure of what to expect during our stay Many of the reviews complained about the staff and cleanliness of the hotel During our 3 day stay the staff was friendly and helpful

The room was clean and well kept We booked a 2 queen studio and the space inside was incredible and plenty of room to spread out Even though we did not use the kitchen it was spotless including the refrigerator The gym was perfect for being on the road with a cable machine, free weights, bike, treadmills, and elliptical machines My only suggestion for the hotel is to replace the pillows because they are worn out comfort wise I stay in a variety of Hilton properties and I would definitely recommend this location

Best place Safest I’ve been to in San Antonio Clean

Worth the money Quiet Great full breakfast It’s my go to every time I visit San Antonio here forward Don’t let the area discourage you I was leery at first but don’t regret my stay I’ve registered for rooms in way better areas and the hotels were shady and crime infested This place was worth every penny

Rod

Honest review:Completed my stay this weekend 4 issues that were concerningUnfortunately the smell of smoke resonates through the whole hotel that is smoke free

Seems to be seamed into the walls and carpetA/C unit is very loud, turns on and off throughout the night Not the best for sleepBreakfast was absolutely horrendous, we had to buy food next door Eggs were from the powder, biscuits were hardI would’ve left a higher review but for lack of professionalism from staff Had dinner delivered without a forkI had kindly asked the the front desk for a plastic fork around 5pm I was told , sorry no we close at 9AM Nothing I can doI left it alone, since I’m not that kind of guest, but we ended up going next door again to get a forkI do understand if I was asking for breakfast but I just really wanted a fork to finish my meal There was roughly 9 guests in the entire hotel, the silverware probably within 15 feet of reception area I would’ve appreciated an effort to attempt to please a guestSometimes it’s the small things that ruin an experienceUnfortunately I will never stay at a best western again do to this experience

Ramone Holmes

The staff was nice, friendly; from the point of us checking in things went down hill1 Hallways smelled like smoke, my mother n law room shower was not working, the refrigerator was not working as well, my room up stairs every time you use the bathroom I have to take the top off the toilet and mess with the floater so the bowl would fill up

The hotel is decorated nicely The staff was inadequate The hotel was not equipped

No towels when needed Not enough towels for the number of guests in our room No linens except the ones on our beds No roll out cots in the hotel The sliding bathroom door would not stay closed No water pressure in the shower Tried to check in at check in time and was told no rooms were ready The pool was cool, shape of Texas, however it was green waterThe food sucked! Milk was sour Apple juice was bad They were out of all condimentsI will never stay in this hotel again nor will I recommend it to anyone!

Heather Lee

Vehicle was broken into in broad daylight at 930am Hotel staff was less than helpful Due to safety concern especially for those that are traveling I would not recommend

Nothing of value was in sight to spark thieves interest We have stayed here before without any issues but will not be returning-not necessarily because of break in but due to the lack of concern/customer service from young hotel staff In response to the hotels claims the video was shown to us only in partial not given to us No one yelled at any of the staff and it is well within our right to post a review as any other customer can I also did not say that to the staff but to my husband The police were called and report was filed Detectives will be in touch with your establishment And thank you for blocking us as we had no intention of returning The benefit of San Antonio being a tourist city is there are plenty of other lodging options(many with a higher level of concern for the publics safety) Given the response from the hotel I am very glad this is a public forum so all possible lodgers can see what they may have to experience first hand and the manner it will be addressed Picture is worth a thousand words as they say and given the other poor reviews travelers be wary! Thank you for your concern vehicle has been detailed and window has already been replaced

Bradly Lovell

First I have no clue why anyone would rate this place low It was perfect The staff was very friendly and helpful

Everytime we walked in we were greeted Rooms had plenty of space and was very clean Breakfast was great nice selection Lobby was very big plenty of seating Pool was clean and amazing Location was perfect easy on and off of the highway Just far enough from downtown where you don’t have to pay the extra money I highly recommend it

Chelsea Guimbarda

The room was very accommodating for our stay The bed was soft, the towels were fluffy, overall the room was very clean and the parking lot is very well lit at night The only down fall I came across was during check in, the front desk agent did not stand to greet us and check us in, he remained seated in his seat during the whole check in process

Not a big deal, just felt a little unwelcoming

Courtney Koback

I’d love to give this place more stars, but from the beginning we weren’t impressed Arrived around 315 (and were told on the phone check in is anytime after 3) we were told our room wasn’t ready And that someone was checking the room, No big deal but once we got to the room the shower was gross had a few hairs in it and wasn’t wiped down at all

I even took a photo that I wish I could attach Not sure what was “checked” thenWe drove about 13 hours from TN and didn’t want to deal with moving rooms, so we ended up going straight to bed We cleaned it ourselves the next dayThe breakfast was horrible waffles tasted like cardboard And there wasn’t much of anything elseFor being a fairly new hotel I expected a lot better

Where to start

Bathroom had a not-so-clean bathtub and the only toilet paper roll was almost gone Room walls could use some paint Bed comforter had a drop of dried blood on it Looked like it had been washed, but who wants to see that?! Also, I am a light sleeper, so I kept hearing the whistle of trains passing by throughout the nightBreakfast was okay; I have had better

We had a fantastic time at this hotel! I love that they have a parking garage connected to the hotel which makes you feel more safe as you come and go The rooms are very clean and smell great The staff are fantastic

The hotel is close enough to enjoy all that San Antonio has to offer without feeling like you are right in the middle of SA chaos! They have a weight room and a pool with two jacuzzi tubs If ever in the area again, we will definitely check this hotel out again!

Don’t forget to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any stay This website will compare thousands of booking web sites and typically will have rates much cheaper than others! Thank me later on! This hotel is the best rated in this area

I’ve been coming here for a long time If you stay for a few nights you for sure won’t be disappointedEverything was clean Employees were all super nice Free breakfast and dinner buffet Nothing over the top, but good Would like a little bacon with my eggs instead of sausage patties, but you can’t win them all Nice garage parking and 3 free drinks per night

Carol

We needed a room quickly, as in a coupled of hours on Father’s Day due to an AC problem at home We were found a room that was ready immediately Chris greeted us as if we were family at the front desk

We were told that breakfast was available daily And that 5:30pm was kickback time with drink pass and dinner We never had to leave the property an asset due to the extreme heat The entire staff was helpful, friendly, caring, and made our stay very pleasant considering the reason for the stay We plan on joining the Drury Hotel program and using it in the future for family visitsThank you!

The best hotel I have ever stayed in We stayed here in January 2022 and came back to stay in June 2022 All of their staff are just amazingly attentive, cheerful, kind, and professional

The room was so clean, spotless, spacious, and elegant yet modern Amenities were excellent The coffee they serve by Merritt Coffee Hotel Emma blend is excellent The in-room dining was from the restaurant called Supper and it was exquisite The seasonal produce they choose for each meal was well presented and tasty The property smells so good from the moment you enter and it is so comforting The signature welcome drink was unique and excellent The rooftop pool was well maintained and very nice I would love to stay at the Hotel Emma again real soon!!

Jane Baran

We stayed at Hotel Emma in early April It was by far our favorite hotel on our two week tour of Texas The architecture is stunning

Amazing attention to detail and preservation Everyone we encountered was very friendly and efficient The room was great We had a balcony with comfy furniture Loved the tile in the bathroom We took advantage of the hotel’s river tour and very much enjoyed it Some might say it’s not super close to the action, but we actually appreciated not being in the thick of things

K. Harewood

Honestly The best hotel I have stayed in My husband stayed for two nights after our wedding and we were so impressed

The staff is top notch and accommodating We had the king room with the balcony overlooking the river walk What a treat The beds are so comfortable The shower is large and has a bench I was craving biscuits and though not usually on the menu- it was a scratch-made for me with preserves All of the staff that assisted us seemed genuine Felt like visiting family you didn’t know you had Thanks Hotel Emma

Spent July 3 and 4 checked out the 5th Stephanie provided top notch service! She went above and beyond for us by allocating a room for us on Sunday so we could check in before 4pm with our dogs!! Pool was great! It was nice to have the grills outside to use! Fire alarm on July 4th due to someone burning popcorn! 🤣 The room was a decent size It was perfectly located as our dig did not hear ANY fireworks!! Thanks to the staff!! Thinking about coming back for New Years eve!!!

nicholas robertson

Overall, the hotel is clean with many amenities given most, if not all, rooms have small kitchenettes With that said, I have a few recommendations for management1

Please add recycling to your rooms Given a large number of disposable products and take-out food used by those staying here, a huge majority of the trash is recyclable This needs to be addressed, as a ton of recyclable items are simply going in the normal landfill2 I recommend placing those with pets farther away from elevators Almost every time I got on or off an elevator there was a pet barking from them hearing the elevator and movement outside If you place them at the far ends then they will likely bark less with fewer noises, no nearby elevator, and the stairs are already on the far ends which is perfect for letting pets out to go potty3 Add popcorn to your snack area You have a great little snack bar area, but no popcorn I feel this is a staple snack for most4 Look to upgrade internet speed It is fairly slow for today’s day and age Given this is a high TDY local with lots of individuals and families displaced from normal life, people rely heavily on the internet for communication, work, and entertainment Even increasing each room or wifi access speed by 30-40% would likely make a huge improvement in quality of life while here5 This is likely not fixable, but your elevators are incredibly slow Given your only stairwells are on the far end of each hallway and are not central (very bad design), the elevator is often sought after; however, it is so slow that I can often walk all the way to the end of the building, take the stairs to my floor, and get to my room faster than waiting on an elevatorOverall though, the stay was enjoyable with few issues I simply had improvement recommendations Thank you and take care

Staff was nice Check in and out was easy The room was nice

Had a desk so I could work Bathroom was clean and big I didn’t give 5 stars because the floors in the room are really sticky and the pool was dirty and all the chairs in the pool area are extremely rusty Flaking off rust and mixed with the pool water and condensation the floors had rust on them Bartender was so kind and great at conversing with everyone at the bar My kiddo ordered a burger and said it was really good Downer is they charge a lot for things Obviously cause they’re a hotel but $1200+ for a kids meal was a bit intense Would recommend but definitely wouldn’t walk around the room without socks or house shoes

Ellen Bader

I stayed there with my daughter and her two little ones The kids were comfortable Rooms are very clean

I weight 110 lbs but to me the beds are very comfortable I was on the second floor and it was very quiet during my 2 nights stay Room has a very good blackout curtain that the light can’t come in I like to sleep in a very dark room Cooling/heating system worked well, staff were nice I was very comfortable and I slept well The only drawback if you have kids that like to swim, the pool is freezing cold Hallway and room carpets can use an update They look faded I’m giving it a four star because of the pool, carpet and no free breakfastAlthough breakfast is not free but inexpensive Other than that I had no problem with my stay

William Cavey

Very nice clean hotel Free shuttle service to the airport was a bonus Not much to see in the neighbourhood when we went for a walk

To me it was a conveniently placed airport/overnight hotel Good check out time for noon hour No tub but very modern clean shower Didn’t try the breakfast – too much food and too expensive Pool was nice looking but pretty small

Quite disappointed in this location We went on a multi-day trip and stayed exclusively at holiday inn locations, and out of all of them, this one was the worst Our room was dirty with debris on the floor around the beds and hair in the bathroom shower and sink

Our bed sheets had other people’s hair in them Towels frayed Room was cool but hallways impossibly hot and stifling Continuous stomping from above all night which rendered us sleepless Couldn’t wait to check out the next day The only positive, warranting the two star review, was the sweet lady at the desk who greeted us when we checked in Other than that, this location is off of our list for places we would ever want to visit again Disappointed and grossed out

Morgan was amazing!I stayed for only two nights and she made me feel welcome fromThe moment I walked in, to the moment I left She helped me straighten out my room accommodations when I made mistake booking She helped me figure out the heat in my room, and you could tell she loved her job

It made me love staying there all the more Morgan thank you for making my stay that much more enjoyable ❤️

We decided to try this location after having a less than stellar experience at another Holiday Inn location in the areaUnfortunately the experience at this location was just as disappointingWhile the check-in staff was friendly enough they failed to acknowledge me as a member of IHG One Rewards which is a definite mistake that appears to be happening at far too many IHG locations lately

The room initially appeared to be in good order, but we found that the wall temperature control didn’t work and we had to use the controls on the heater/ac unit itself This prevented the hassle of changing rooms, but was another negative strikeThe next was broke power outlets on one side of the bed Again, not enough of an issue to warrant changing roomsLastly, the shower head was not fully functional and there was only one large bath towelHad we noticed these additional inconveniences when we checked on we would have demaned a different room and a rate discount for the inconvenience or refused to stay and demanded a refundAs it was, we checked out early and will not stay at this location again

Hotel overall was nice and clean Our room was definitely in need of updating and remodeling The outlets ruined our phone charger, the bath tub had a large water stain in it, and overall you could tell the room was in need of repairs

The bed was comfortable, and it was great for over night on our road trip with our cats, but I wouldn’t stay here again if I was in the area

Giving this stay 2 stars and it’s really disappointing because we have really enjoyed most of our stays at La Quintas This one however is need of some attention The kitchen areas (we ended up staying in 2 rooms) were very worn and older

Our room was clean otherwise so we didn’t fret it was like no big deal we used our points for this stay The issue came during the evening when one of us walked into the restroom to several bugs (not sure what they were) crawling around on the floor and the more we looked around the more we seen as the lights were being turned on and for us this is a deal breaker!! We quickly moved our things to the car and called down to the lobby The staff was super friendly and apologetic and very quick to get us another room on a lot higher of a floor We still left our things in the car but at 1am moving rooms was the best option at that point We know these things happen and in warmer climates especially, we’re not unreasonable but there was so many we couldn’t have been the 1st complaint the room was clearly neglected and should not have been booked The photos are of the 1st room with the issue We will be attempting to get our points back and will definitely not be staying at this La Quinta in the future I would like to emphasize that this could have been a much worse situation if the staff wasn’t so willing and eager to try to make adjustments

The lobby was nice, the breakfast was descent but the room was dingy and dirty There were stains on the walls and the couch The restroom was dated and dingy

The ice machine had mold on it Overall the place just felt nasty and dated Even the exterior was dirty looking The staff were very kind, polite and helpful They’re basically the only plus side

This Hotel had nice rooms If you care about the bed I will tell you very comfy and a good nights sleepThe room was clean and fresh

They have a pretty good breakfast They did have a laundry facility on site and that was helpful The location was ok My 4 starts comes from just not very friendly employees, from the front desk to the cleaning crew just really not nice people The Front desk check in was mostly unattended Overall may not stay again

I’m really surprised about all the good reviews since our experience was so differentThe room had a bad smell so did the restroom There was a dog next door who barked at everything

When we asked the front desk to be moved they said they didn’t have any roomsThe bed was very comfy and the breakfast was pretty good They also have on-site laundry available Unfortunately, overall it was not a very good experience I chose this hotel because of the high-ish rating for the price but it was not worth it

I always get worried that 5 star ratings are done by bots or people paid to leave reviews However, this was a great hotel It smelled nice, was very clean, and I didn’t even hear the highway traffic near by

We only stayed one night because we took a short trip up to San Antonio from Corpus, but I’d definitely stay again Friendly staff, clean room, everything was organized Bathroom was clean, AC was working well and controlled by a thermostat on the wallMy only complaint was the beds weren’t very comfortable I woke up a few times with a sore back and when I woke up this morning, my back ached My mother had the same complaint about her bed Wasn’t a big deal or worth knocking off a star, though Pillows were comfortable and the comforter kept us warmBreakfast was good, though the chorizo was fairly bland I’d recommend at least offering cheese if you have breakfast tacos Waffles you make yourself, a small selection of cereal, oranges and apples, bagels, bread and other items were good No complaints reallyCheckout was seamless We enjoyed our stay and only for $85 with tax!
