Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wasamara It was ok
I went to San Antonio for fun to go to Sea World and the location of the hotel was ok, maybe 10 min away from sea world. The room was ok. Clean, not too small, front desk people really nice, friendly. My only complain was the breakfast and the breakfast area. That carpet needs to be replaced. Is dirty and old. The rest was ok

Good, clean, quiet hotel. Business table well set up with convenient power outlets and network jack so I could get my afterwork work done. Bathroom had one oddity to other HIE properties - it was a tiled shower - not a bathtub shower and glass doors.

We have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Sea World in San Antonio three different times over the past 5 years. Each time it was because we had a son graduating from Air Force basic training, and each time we have had several rooms for extended family. The staff and facilities always make us feel like we are in a home...not a hotel. The big "family room" is fabulous for gathering after a long day. We played games, watched football, and just hung out. Every member of the staff - from front desk to cleaning staff - treated us like family. They are friendly and helpful, consistently going above and beyond. THANK YOU for a wonderful experience!

Friendly staff, great check in experience. The breakfast was fabulous!! I have never stayed at a Holiday Inn Express before like this one. My whole stay was wonderful. The room was clean and neat. The location was great and I had a blast at Sea World which was close to the hotel. I will always come back to this hotel when I am in San Antonio. I just cannot believe the fantastic customer service.

From the time I checked in to the time I checked out, the staff was great - went out of their way to make you feel at home. The rooms were big and clean!!! Breakfast had many choices and the lady that worked in there was so nice. Now that my son is stationed here, we will definitely be back.

This Summer we stayed here on two separate 2-4 day stays in San Antonio.
From reservation to check-out the staff was extremely polite, accommodating and easy to deal with. The AA lady who runs the Breakfast Bar could not be more friendly, eager to serve and aware of her clients and their needs.
Very clean and no problems with rooms.

The staff was great and very friendly. The problem I had was the maintenance. We had to move to another room due to the fact that the ac was not working properly, it was hot in that room. the new room that we received the closet door would not close.

Let me tell you about my experience. As we walked in to the hotel and our room Me and my family had a good impression. But as a mother im always checking that my girls are in a safe and clean environment. Unfortunately u guys didn't make it easy for me. I understand that mistakes do happen but being a holiday inn, what u charge per night and the area where u are at, I was expecting a lot more on your cleaning.
1 bath towels with black stains
2 toilet seat dirty
3 under the sofa bed lots of dirt

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JWS33 In Need of some TLC
The best thing about this hotel is it's location. I am only going to outline the two things that stood out to me most that I really didn't like for this hotel. 1) The ceiling tiles were in awful shape with bad water stains and missing pieces. It was near the entrance which made it eve worse. Not good for customer appeal at all. 2) The outside doors on the side of the building didn't work with the room cards. Made it even more difficult for unloading/loading luggage for my family of six. Overall...the hotel wasn't bad but it could easily be a lot better with a little time and effort for fixing it up. Still a comfortable place for sleeping.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GCharles271 Wonderful Time
This stay made my vacation/ business trip just wonderful. The location of the hotel was very well placed, good restaurants close by, gas station was easy access. Also access to the hotel was very easy off the expressway. The staff was just great and vary accommodating. Each time we made contact with one of the staff we were greeted with a smile. Mr. Jaije ( hope I spell his name right) I believe he was one of the managers was very helpful with directions and any questions we had about the hotel and surrounding areas. The front desk staff was always neat and very professional. Everyone from the maintenance staff to the duty managers were just wonderful.
We looked forward to the breakfast bar each morning. The seating was good, it gave us a chance to either mingle with other guest or to sit privately. The breakfast bar was kept full at all times with a smile.
Our room was very spacious and extremely clean. The bed was very comfortable and the shower had all amenities kept full each day of our stay. Mainly our nights were quiet and we were able to get a good night's sleep. Sound proofing was very good between the hall and rooms.
All in all I give this hotel a FIVE STAR RATEING. I will definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family. I look forward to my next trip to stay with this property. Keep up the good work. !!!

We had an overnight stay, and for the price this hotel was great. Beds were comfortable, staff was friendly, wireless worked well and the free breakfast was great. Next time we come to San Antonio, we will likely stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ConnieE8 Comfortable beds
This hotel had the most comfortable beds and pillows of the motels I've stayed in recently. The only problem with the hotel was the breakfast area was laid out in a bad way and there were not enough tables.
Would have been nice if the pool had opened up a little earlier. 9:00 is a little late if you want to swim before your SeaWorld experience.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Natej3 Worst experience while on vacation
This had to be the worst experience that I have ever had with an IHG Hotel. My family and I was on vacation and we always stay at Holiday Inn Express or Hotel and Suites. We figured we would stay close to SeaWorld so that the travel would not be that long; well that was the wrong idea. The Hotle was very dirty and disgusting. We first was placed in a room that had hair all over the place. On the beds, pillows and towels. We spoke to the hotel manager and he was very nice and polite and told me to take my family and have fun and he would have a new room cleaned for us upon our return we would switch rooms. So that's what we did. Came back from SeaWorld to a different room but the same outcome. Dirty sheets, linens, clumps of hair on the wash clothes and towels. Are speaking to the lady at the front desk I was informed that there was nothing that she could do because they were sold out. Offered more sheets but to me they all were dirty. My family and I ended up sleeping in the car. The next morning we spoke with the same hotels manager and he was not a happy person and stated that we would receive a full refund which we hav not received yet!!! I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL TO ANYONE!!! They seem not to have a care in tr world about service!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jfletch47 Bad experience in San Antonio
Unfortunately, I can not say many nice things about this particular stay. I used valuable Prioirty Club points on a property close to Sea World San Antonio thinking it would be a welcome respite after a long day at the park.
When I made the reservation, I made it clear that the room would have four adults and one child. I was expecting a two queen bed room with a couch which could have easily accommodated the group. What was received was two queen beds with no couch or even a chair with ottoman. I called to get a roll away bed to be told there were none availabe. I then asked for another room to replace the one my family was in only to be told the only way to do that was to pay for an extra room. We finally were able to secure a chair with an ottoman and extra pillows that my grandson slept in.
As a platinum member, I normally get an upgrade whereever I stay. Not here. I am chalking this one up as a bad experience and have no intention of using this facility again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vivinator Manager Jahi and staff
I will have to say that in the many years of traveling to San Antonio and mainly staying on the riverwalk, this hotel and staff has changed my place of staying with them from now on. They have a great restaurant that I love next door and a movie theatre across the street with a shopping mall across the freeway. Convenient to a lot of things if you want to be away from all the tourists on the riverwalk. This is our 2nd time staying here and the Manager Jahi and the Breakfast staff whom I can't remember her name but her background is from Jamaica) are awesome!!! They remembered us from previous visits and treated us like family. We weren't just customers to them or the staff, they were all very great, respectfull, friendly, caring, and I will be back to visit them again!!!! My family loved staying there. Thanks Jahi for making this place feel like our home away from home.!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by skoobtra Comfortable Bed and Convenient to Sea World
This small hotel was well located for my 3 day excursion to Sea World with my daughter. The beds were comfortable, service was excellent, air conditioning was adequate and my daughter enjoyed the small indoor pool. The breakfast buffet was convenient and my daughter enjoyed the pancake maker. There were several other SeaWorld families there, but it was quiet enough in the evenings for good rest. The building was a little older, the bathroom had cracks and could have used some maintenance to the caulking and sink drainage but the shower was hot and the tub drained well. A good value!
