I am a business traveler who utilizes this hotel frequently. I have never had a nicer staff attend my needs. From Management and Sales to Restaurant and Cleaning you have a top notch friendly group. The hotel is quite busy at times with guests visiting Sea World but the staff is never deterred from providing the best customer service. Enjoy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Martin615 Best hotel in San Antonio!
We have visited San Antonio about 15 times over the place 20 years, staying at 10-12 different hotels. This Holiday Inn has been the best of them all, including the ones on the riverwalk. There location to Sea World is a big plus. The free shuttle made getting to and from Sea World so easy. We will stay here when we return to SA.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by InnSpEcT Great service.
I also use holiday inn for traveling or stay over the night. This holiday inn was far better than other holiday inn which I stayed over at the Austin downtown. Staffs were very knowledgeable about the areas and their hotel information further their willing to help travelers were shown during conversations. When I stayed over at this hotel all rooms were full so reservations is a must if anyone is going to sea world visits or other in San Antonio. One uncomfortable thing I experienced was the noise. People who stayed next to my room were noisy and could hear them until midnight. Overall this is a wonderful didn't have trouble with cleanses of the room. I would definitely go hear again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Juarez Family Great Place to Stay
This was my first time to stay at this Hotel, and I was impressed. When we first arrived, I had to have a discussion about the breakfast with the front desk receptionist. However, once the manager heard us, he walked over and rectified the problem promptly. The rest of the time we were there was great. We will definitely stay at this hotel every time we go to Seaworld.

Lily at the front desk was great. The first room we went to was dirty, had to change. Bad first impression . The restaurant was awful! the staff seemed undertrained, and not managed. It was always dirty. The tables were always dirty. They ran out of bagels, at 7:30, and said that would be it for the day. That seemed pretty early in the morning to be out for the day, could someone go to the store? The worst I experienced was having to use plastic silverware in a restaurant !!! Why didn't someone just wash the silverware, or clean a table to get more silverware to wash!! It boggled my mind. It made you think the whole hotel was dirty and not managed well. The hotel it self is nice, the beds are comfortable, when they are clean. The staff just did not seem ready for a full hotel. It was a shame really.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Chickennugget Comfortable bed but slow service in cafe.
Very few customers in cafe. servers and wait staff I had to go and find them and wait a long time for my food and when I did get it food was cool. Could not get them to come back by for a refill so I had to go to the bar and get it myself.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by clouser Great place for a family Sea World getaway
We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for a family Sea World getaway. The rooms were great, the entire hotel was nice, the entire staff was friendly, and having shuttle service to and from Sea World was just icing on the cake. Joe, the shuttle driver, gave us some excellent restaurant recommendations, and he even dropped us off at the restaurants and picked us up when we were done. You just can't ask for better service than that.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Russell1959 Nice hotel but the restaurant is a dump
Overall a good experience but the restaurant is in terrible shape and needs an overhaul. The chairs are in terrible condition and the upholstery is horrendous. The food is ok but he drinks are overpriced. I was glad I ate out most of the time.

The facility was nice and clean. Our problem was when I called to make reservations, I was told I had connecting rooms, only to find out when we got there we didn't have them. They wouldn't try to fix the problem.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kayelem1947 Holiday Inn Express Falls Below My Radar
Unfortunately it is not the right "season" for this Holiday Inn Express as summertime is over and visitors are scarce. Therefore, my experience with this Holiday Inn fell below a positive score. The rate was too high for the services I didn't get. No one responded to my request for service on the room lock or the lightbulb request until I checked out. Yes, they gave me one night free. Monday to Friday lunch in the attached grill was unavailable. I did not have a car so this was uncomfortable. I understand there weren't many guests staying near Sea World when I was there the week of October 13-17, 2013. Too bad for me. Wish I had a more positive review but at this time I don't.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KMV143 off day
I want to start off by saying I've been recommending this hotel to a lot of my friends. Sharmen I believe her name is was AMAZING and totally made up for the bad day that the person who checked us in was having. He was not pleasent and when I went to put my room on my card he stated that my room rate only covers 2 adult breakfast when I told him that's not what I was told I was told when I booked the over the phone I was told ALL 3 adults in my room and the 2 adults in the other room would all get the complimentary buffet breakfast. He stated again that my rate does NOT cover 3 people. I paid and kept thinking something's not right. Well long story short Sharmen rectified the situation with out any questions at all, and apologized about the mix up. Other then that our stay was awesome and everyone was very nice and you could tell they liked their jobs. I would like to think the person that checked myself and my daughter in was just having an off day, and does not treat all your guests that way.
I like to end on a good note and say again I have been recommending the hotel to all my friends, and if we make it back to Sea World we'll be staying again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Skippy0000 Nice hotel and location
This is a great hotel for families with young children while they visit Seaworld. Free shuttle to Seaworld is a plus. My wife and I stayed there while visiting San Antonio. We're empty nesters so we've been through the young child phase and didn't mind hearing kids cry, run down the halls, and rough house in the room above us. Everything settled down around 9:30 pm anyway. If you're looking for a nice couple's retreat, this isn't the place, if you have a young family, you'll fit right in.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TriztynDeyego Horrid Time
I want to furst start with the positive and the only reason why we will be back here is because of the front desk person Sharmain. She was fantastic and professional... I booked my room and confirmed the next day that it was a suite . When I called day of arrival I was told my suite had been sold and I would be put somewhere else. Now I don't have an issue that I was moved out of my suite that I got with my platinum member status. My problem is no one called me. And to top it of the hotel manager Andrew I think his name was instead of stepping up and talking to me I was pound off. When we arrived Sharmain had 6 different people she was helping along with phones , as I saw Andrew stepping out of the front sledding doors for God knows what. There is much more but I hope to get some sort of response. This was supposed to be a little get away with the family to hit SEAWORLD . Sharmain needs a raise or Andrews job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KateB7 Well maintained, attractive facility
This hotel is easily accessible to Lackland Air Force Base,Sea World, restaurants and shops. Attractive design. Nice sized rooms and bathrooms; beds and pillows comfortable. The pools were clean and enjoyed especially by the teens on the trip. While kids under 12 eat free, the breakfast buffet seemed a little pricey for having virtually the same offerings that Holiday Inn Expresses offer for free. Breakfast staff were personable and helpful as were the staff at the desk.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KKP3 Staff went above and beyond
The San Antonio NW - Seaworld Area was wonderful in every way. While stranded on a San Antonio freeway lost, the front desk staff took my call of distress, and rather than give directions, kept me on the line and talked me all the way to the Holiday Inn parking lot. Imagine how delighted I was to meet that young man and woman in the lobby. Their hotel felt like home for the rest of my stay.
I swam early morning laps, enjoyed a great breakfast in the restaurant, and slept like a baby. I strongly recommend this Holiday Inn property to anyone staying in San Antonio on the NW side of town. And if you're not visiting that part of town, just put in a call and the friendly staff will get you there!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bany They do not vacuum or clean the toilet everyday
One thing is to try to be ecofriendly by no changing sheets or towels everyday and but by not vacuum or clean the toilet everyday that's in my book being filthy and lax.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wmcatty Best service I have found anywhere
I brought my wife and 3 year old grandson to San Antonio for a few days so that we could visit SeaWorld. I picked this particular hotel for its close proximity to SeaWorld and its free shuttle service from the hotel to the park. Now, I have stayed at literally hundreds, if not thousands, of both motels and hotels in my lifetime and was dumbfounded with this Holiday Inn's staff and the comfort/completeness/cleanliness of the entire property. Room comfort speaks for itself, but I have never been so impressed with the level of helpfullness that was extended to us every day we were there by the staff. They were knowledgable, courteous, polite and very helpful with all the questions my wife and I had...and we had plenty of them since it had been almost 40 years since we had been to San Antonio. The front desk ladies even recommended I print out my discount coupons directly from SeaWorld, as they were having a special that day and were $10.00 per person cheaper than what Holiday Inn could get me the discount tickets for...that is service! I will stay there again and highly recommend this property to anyone traveling through San Antonio. If my grandson could type, he would recomment the 3 pools to everyone too...he had a blast.

I travel to a lot of places working and vacationing, and this is my new favorite place. Although I work when I am here, and this location is close enough to see the roller coasters at Sea World, it is surprisingly quiet. The staff is second to none. I am very pleased in every way.

I would not ever stay here again. I would not recommend this property to anyone. We experienced near deplorable room conditions. Housekeeping is non existent. The other staff in the Sporting News Grill, shuttle driver, & front desk supervisor all did great and provided a good experience. However you can not overcome the unsanitary room conditions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mimi53 Shuttle service
Always available picked me up on request and dropped me at nearby restaurant then promptly picked me up again. I was able to go to sea world several times in a day and relax at inn in pool when kids hot and tired, even napped and then returned for shows. Forget the long walks in parking lot. Shuttle service (free) is the way to go.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unhappyguest28 Dontstayhere
The food in the resturaunt is terrible and the prices are rediculous! That was frustrating to say the least since one of the major reasons we stayed here was so we could eat here before and after our long days at sea world! The worst part of our stay was the first night after a long hot day at sea world and an unfortunate dinning experience we went to room to get baths done for the kids and found NOT ONE towel in the room. It took them over an hour to bring towels and when they finally did they made it like they did us a favor. "We took these towels from the cart which we are never aloud to do". As if I cared. By then the 3 & 4 year olds were up way too late! Management did absolutely nothing for us. Customer service was terrible! Beds were comfortable...that is the ONLY good thing I can say about this hole! Oh, and shuttle was convenient!

Enjoyed my stay the room is very clean and the bed very comfortable and the people are very nice who work at this Holiday INN near SeaWorld. You can walk to SeaWorld when it cool outside, But Holiday Inn drive you to the front door of SeaWorld, great service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MiMi3 Sea World Trip with our Grand-Angels
We had a wonderful experience with the San Antonio Holiday Inn near Sea World. The rooms were very clean and the breakfast buffet is excellent! The service we received during breakfast is by far the best we have ever been given at a Holiday Inn. Our waitress watched our younger ones while we fixed our plates which if you are a grandparent you how helpful that was. We used the shuttle service to Sea World and we were dropped off and picked up at the front entrance in a timely manner. It is a bit more expensive than some Holiday Inn's but being so close to Sea World it is understandable. The front desk clerk even took time to take our vacation picture with the Grand-Angles. They have a beautiful lobby.
