I only put a one star rating because I couldn't put zero....I went through Hotwire "Hot Rates" (won't reveal hotel name until after booking), specified I wanted a 3 star hotel, found this "gem" for $64/night. On the Hotwire site it says that Hotels with this rating are comparable to Hilton, Sheraton, Holiday Inn & Crowne Plaza's. So with that...

I can overlook some problems but the over all cleanliness was too much to ask someone to stay there. We considered leaving. It would take so little to bring it up to clean. The phone had no wire and did not work. We had no remote controls. We looked at another roon, it was also dirty.

Sometimes I like to roll the dice with Hotwire and pick a mystery hotel. You know, when they give you a list of 3 star hotels you may possibly get when picking the area. I like the feeling of the unknown and that feeling of satisfaction the one time out of 10 Hotwire accidentally places you in a better hotel...

This is my first time writing a review for a hotel because this was by far the most terrible experience that I had staying at hotels. 3 Star is a joke for this hotel. This hotel was unbelievably dirty in all places. I am sure they don't clean the room and even inspect it before someone get in there. The...

From the start I should have known this was going to be a horrible experience. I made a reservation for a king junior suite, but because the front desk admitted they were over booked, I got knocked down to a regular 2 beds room. I was charged for my reservation a week prior. Plus, I had received a confirmation email...

Location is great for access to Fort Sam and anything else. A rental car with unlimited mileage is a good idea. Rooms were clean and staff were nice. Nice pool outside too. Breakfast is awesome and buffet style. Bring your own groceries as no market real close by. Wifi was good and cell coverage great. The rooms could use some...
