Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IowaJan Clean room and gracious staff
Knowing that this property was being remodeled gave us some concern before we arrived. However the warm welcome by staff and the availability of the shuttle service to downtown soon made it possible to ignore the work being done. The breakfast room had been relocated to the conference room and each morning of our four day stay started with a wonderful hot breakfast with an extreme number of choices. Our room was clean and comfortable and our room was thoroughly cleaned each day while we were away.
Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful as was the lady that worked in the breakfast area. We especially appreciated Lulu and Joe who drove the shuttle to and from the downtown area. Having received a card with the phone number the first evening, we just called to say we needed to be picked up and agreed on a location.
We would stay in this property again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by traveler8999 My experience at HInn Rivercenter
This is my first time writing a review, but I hope I can help someone when choosing a hotel.
Our windows were towards the street on the second floor. Walls, in my understanding, do not have enough insulation to keep noises out.
Fan in restroom, very loud.
Staff, very nice.
I guess next time we book a room, we should request one towards the inside and not towards the street.
I blessed to be back at home.

We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express in San Antonio. The staff was very friendly and worked to make our stay as pleasant as possible. We really appreciated the shuttle service and excellent breakfast choices. Good work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by frankieagain great stay---visible improvements in progress
we loved our room arrangement. lobby and hallways had visble updates in progress. we missed the gravy & biscuits usually available at breakfast. the dining room was related for construction so that may have made the difference on some menu items . shuttle service was a great value for us and very convenient in available hours and rewsponse when called.

We stayed October 5th. I don't know the name of the guy who worked the front desk around 10:30 that night, but he deserves a raise. We had an issue with the ac not working in our room and he was so kind to us and quickly put us in another room. He was so polite. Then our car lights were left on and your security guard had the night clerk call us and let us know. Great employees you have there with great customer service. We stay in San Antonio often and will definitely stay at your hotel from now on. Thanks for the hospitality!!

We booked this particular Holiday Inn for the location being close to the Alamodome. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We especially like the Shuttle Service provided. Though it was under . remodeling at the time of our stay we were not inconvenienced. I would not hesitate to book this Holiday Inn again if I had another event at the Alamodome. I would look forward to seeing the changes made.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GEF70 SURPRISED AND DISSAPOINTED
We first arrived to a major remodeling project, which we tried to make the best of, which we were not made aware of.
Next we called for a foam pad for the hard bed and they said they
don't have any and no one else complained, so we said okay,
The temporary lunch room had stained carpet and dirty stained
Our room smelled old.
The final straw was when we were falsely accused and charged
$ 250.00 for a smoking charge, which was removed, after they
had the room checked and found out that everything was left
good, as we always leave our rooms. My wife has never smoked,
and I quit smoking Nov. 14, 1984.
Please let people know when remodeling.
UNHAPPY AND INSULTED,

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by concertfan Shuttle service is superb.
We loved the shuttle running every 30 minutes. Lulu and Chris, our shuttle drivers, were very personable plus prompt in picking us up. I would stay here just for the free shuttle service.
We were there for a concert at Sunset Station. We walked to/from the concert and felt perfectly save. The only security issue for us was the panhandler that worked the fenced parking lot . We encountered her on our arrival and departure. The front desk was made aware of her activity.
Our suite needed updating, but was very clean. The lighting was dim, especially in the bathroom. Our room was on the 3rd floor facing Commerce St. but we did not have an issue with street noise or trains from Sunset Station.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SeanTsays Best Value in San Antonio
I was in San Antonio for 3 weeks and was looking for convenient location with acceptable amenities at a decent rate and this hotel far exceeded my expectations. I've stayed over 250 nights in hotels the past 3 years and this hotel really treated me like family. I visited 3 other hotels for a night each and ended up staying at this one. Their shuttle to downtown runs frequently and their drivers are friendly. They even provided a cell phone charger when a friend of mine who visited me forgot to pack their charger. If you're looking to go to the riverwalk or the Alamo, then this is a great hotel to choose. Thanks for reading my review

Stayed for three nights to attend football game and do sightseeing. Staff service was excellent and the free shuttle to and from Market/River Walk areas is a great amenity. Very pleased with quality of room and location (close to Alamodome). Once renovations to lobby are completed facility will be top notch.

This hotel and it's staff are absolutely "OUTSTANDING"!! The quality of the facility is well worth the cost of the room at the time of this stay. It's amenities are more than adequate.
The staff is "Top Shelf". They are friendly, welcoming, and know what GREAT customer service is! Not just good or mediocre but the best customer service I have received at any IHG hotel in many years!
I will return to this hotel each and every time I am in the area. I would recommend this property to anyone traveling to the San Antonio area!

We were in town for my daughters BMT graduation!! Your staff were so friendly and accommodating!!! You all went out of your way to ensure our needs were taken care of from using the computer in your office to look at BMT pictures on a CD, to accommodating our shuttle service to an event! We highly recommend your hotel. Even with the remodel, we were not disturbed. The rooms were clean, the continental breakfast was very good and your location to Riverwalk is perfect!! Thank you very much for going above and beyond our expectations! We will definitely be back next year for another BMT graduation!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shirley76 Your employees
Our stay at your hotel was comfortable and relaxing. We found
the room and all facilities excellent. However, the greatest asset of your establishment would be your employees. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. They showed us the utmost in efficiency and excellence. From the Desk clerk, the maid, the attendant at our breakfast and to the shuttle drivers, all were outstanding in their service. They actually seemed to enjoy serving others. This is an admirable trait. Please commend them for all of their kind hospitality and truly exceptional service. They gave my wife extra
patience and understanding. Due to being handicapped and using a wheelchair, this was greatly appreciated. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

We just returned home from our 3-day visit to San Antonio. Our experience was enhanced by this hotel. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable and the A/C worked well. Our room was quiet and we seldom heard hallway noise which is important to those of us who are early-to-bed folks. The close proximity to the Alamo and the RiverCenter Mall was a big plus. The drive to SeaWorld was under 30 minutes. The breakfast buffet was well presented and tasty and the offerings changed each day. We found the staff to be engaging and responsive. The shuttle service was a blessing. It was as it should be: prompt, knowledgeable and friendly. We never had to wait more than 10 minutes for a pick-up, and usually the wait was about 5 minutes. Our room easily accommodated our party of 5 and we found the stay exceeded our expectations.

My girlfriend and I came to stay downtown for her birthday and we were just amazed with the service at the Holiday Inn! It is without a doubt that the shuttle driver Joey and lady at the front desk Raquel both deserve a raise. They were both very helpful and made the stay worth while. There were very ugly and rude guests talking very nasty to these employees but Joey and Raquel handled it very professionally. I'm very proud of these two employees, they're what makes that Hotel worth while and the reason I would go back and recommend this place. Thank you and I hope these employees get rewarded for their respect towards customers, patience, hard work and professionalism.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by aggie09 not sure if i would recommend it . hit/miss type night
its one of those hit/miss type hotels. i mean it can be really clean an staff are friendly one day and the opposite next. the carpet was not that clean. bathroom needed some touch ups. beds were fine. plus you can hear the next door peeps talking if they're talking loud or have kids screaming. best thing about this place is location for the price. its about 3 blocks away from the river walk.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bubbawells The Bestest Ever
In the words of my son who stayed with me at this property "This is the Bestest Ever!" The breakfast was amazing (including chocolate milk) While the hotel is beginning renovations to update the property it surprised me that it was being renovated since it appeared in good order with a modern look and feel. I can't wait to see the finished product. The renovations did not cause ANY inconvenience during my stay. The staff was most helpful. I had a very late check-in (1am) and was greeted by General Manager. Upon getting to our room we realized that a toothbrush and most importantly an iphone charger had been left at home. I returned to the front desk and was given a toothbrush and the General Manager himself loaned us his personal charger to ensure that we had a phone fully charged for our next day of activity. That's what I call going above and beyond! I have stayed at this location twice in the last month and plan to make this my main stay while in San Antonio. Did I mention the shuttle that will get you to the downtown area?

Nice place for the price. Shuttle service is great. You don't have to pay to park like most hotels in the area. The only complaint I have is I left a small tote bag there and called that evening and was told that it was probably thrown away. The front desk clerk said she would have the head of house keeping call me back. It's been 5 days and still haven't heard from them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bubbawells Amazing Property
I stay at close to 30 Holiday Inn properties each year and this one is the best I've seen. The employees were helpful, the room amazing and the breakfast even includes chocolate milk! (sometimes it's the little things that matter!) I can not say enough good about this place, you just really have to experience it yourself. Don't be surprised if the General Manager himself is checking you in and ensure you have the best stay ever.
This property should be the standard by which all other Holiday Inn Express properties should measure themselves.

I travel to San Antonio for business on a three day stay. This was one of the better Holiday Inn locations I stayed at. The front side of the room was set up like a living room, couch, love seat. The middle was a kitchen and bathroom. Back of the room was the bedroom. I haven't seen a setup like this before but was pretty nice. I enjoyed the trip and the stay. A +

Thank you Holiday Inn Express for making our recent stay so pleasurable! Every aspect of our stay, from arrival, parking, check-in (our goodie-bag), room comfort and checkout was pleasant and we will most definitely be back! In addition, the Holiday Inn Express is close to so many of our favorite places to visit while in San Antonio. Thank you!

Although this hotel had experienced some storm damage the day before we arrived, the staff went out of its way to accommodate us. We particularly appreciated the assistance provided by the shuttle service downtown and to the Amtrak station with its unusual hours. The breakfast choices and service were excellent. Good facility.
