Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rane27 Good Value - Nice Hotel
Price was outstanding for a nice room with a comfortable king size bed. Quiet hotel off a side street on Hwy 281 North. Quick drive from the Airport. Called hotel to confirm directions before leaving Airport and they gave me an alternate address to put in GPS and confirmed directions. Easy check in and lots of parking. Used the treadmill in the fitness room and had the free breakfast. Great value for the stay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Houston2903 Dirty Room
We asked for two queens size beds and when we got there the beds were full size. After looking around my room I found a pair of children's dirty underpants next to bed near the window. This really made me feel they do not clean the rooms very well.
The shower head needed to be clean and had a lot of green build up. The tub was leaking from the bottom of the seal and the water did not drain very well.
We stayed two nights at this location and we used our reward points and we asked for a larger room and they can take additional points the front clerk called her manager and she said it would be an additional $20.00 to move to a bigger room but we stayed in our original room.
The first morning after eating breakfast in the hotel I saw the breakfast attendant sitting on the prep table after she came back from the bathroom. I think if you are going to prepare meals on that table you should not be sitting on the table.
I did not eat breakfast on the second morning because I felt that if this person put her bottom on the table where she prepare meal it is very unsanitary.
I would not ever stay or eat at this location again.

Just as I've come to expect from all Holiday Inn Express motels - this one was comfortable, clean, and the staff did a great job!
Rebecca was wonderful - she made the group I came with feel very welcome. Thank you!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by matnmon Stayed two nights. One Good. One less than average.
The first night of our stay was a good experience. The lady that checked us in that night was VERY kind and helpful. She recommended the Big Win promotion and was great about answering our questions. We checked out the following day because we had planned to stay at a special little Bed and Breakfast. I thought he called in our B&B reservation and he thought I had. So, by 10 pm, we had no room booked. I reserved a room through my mobile device at this same hotel. Our room was supposed to be two beds. When we checked in and reached our room (tired from a long, hot day) we were assigned one king bed. The lady at the desk reassigned us to a two bed room. I realize this is not that much of a big deal. We were very tired at this point and it was a little frustrating loading all of our gear and getting up to the third story to find the wrong room. We settled into the correct room and I placed some of our cooler items in the mini fridge. The fridge still contained items from the previous guests. The items were shoved way in the back and not easy to see from a standing position. I then used the restroom sink to wash my hands and face. There were old dry water spots around the sink. Not a major thing either. However, I felt slightly less comfortable in this room than the first night or at other Holiday Inns.

We formerly stayed exclusively at Holiday Inns, but changed over time. We have just become familiar with Holiday Inn Express, and have enjoyed two recent stays. The rooms are spacious and clean, and have refrigerators & microwaves. the breakfast is very good. Check-in staff very friendly and helpful.
We will be a regular customer.

Es el hotel con el peor trato en el que yo he estado, las personas de recepción siempre estan malhumoradas. Tiene buenas instalaciones, pero mal servicio de limpieza.
En referencia al desayunador no tienen variedad de frutas y de yoguhrt solo un sabor, no manejan productos bajos en grasa o ligeros en azucares.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lamar52 Comfortable,clean,staff great.
My sisters and I stayed 2 nights and it was a great stay! The beds were very comfortable. The only problem we had the 1st night was a slow drain in tub, it was taken care of as soon as we told the front desk. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was hot and the lady that was replenishing everything was very nice and attentive. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by robbedinSA No concern for security.
Car was broken into in the parking lot where the only access is by the front door. When I reported it to the front desk they said there are no camera coverage of the parking lot and so there was nothing that could be done. I have stayed at this particular hotel many times and was very disappointed with the lack of concern for my loss. Priority Club identifies this as my favorite hotel. I guess it is time to find a new location.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Vajramukti Excellent as usual
Excellent as always. Comfortable, everything worked.
Two problems, there were apparently 3 different TV services, so the channel guide did not match what was actually on. And it took between 8-10 minutes each day to get hot water.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Don209 Location was good
To start I was not recognized as a priority member when I checked in. The room had double beds instead of Queen Beds that was a minus. Cleaning of the room the first day wasn’t good but they did do better the second day. The pool the first day was yellow. The second day was better but had too much chorine in it. The faucet in the bathroom dripped all the time and didn’t drain very well. I reported it they said it would be Monday before they could fix it and didn’t have another room for me to go to.
This hotel will be ok if you check in and don’t ask for anything.
Just not a friendly Atmosphere.

I have stayed at many Holiday Inn Express locations over the years and this one has kept up the great service and conditions that I have grown to expect every time I stay. Staff was extremely professional and friendly and the room was very well maintained. Thanks for the great stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RankinD Very nice hotel at 1604 & 281.
The hotel is modern with wonderful, courteous staff. With all the new highway construction, if coming south on 281, or west on 1604 , make sure to stay on the 281 South service road. Much easier to access the hotel that way.
Rooms were great and comfy. Great choice for travelers.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ASF1704 Poor room cleaning
the first two days, the cleaning of my room went only 50%, and bad cleaning. I do not know if this was because I was paying with points instead of money. Very bad experience to be a Holiday inn in my vacation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bandwife And once again!
We always stay at this hotel when in San Antonio. It is a little far from the convention center, but well worth the drive! The staff is excellent, our room is always ready and very nice, and the breakfast is wonderful. There are lots of choices and the quantity is very good..
I need a room with a kind bed which is handicap accessible. We have found one at this hotel. Therefore, we call the hotel directly to make our reservation and are able to reserve the exact same room each time! It is wonderful to know that no matter what time we check in, our room will be ready and have the necessities which I need.
I would highly recommend this hotel and their staff for your next visit!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by scooter1717 Shower did'nt work. could not take shower on day of arrival.
When I checked in it was late. After getting work done and finally getting around to taking a shower the shower head was leaking so bad it would have flooded the floor. I called down and they said they would have someone in the morning fix it which they did. But I was unable to take a shower the first night. No one offered anything to me for compensation. No free night. Nothing. I stay in HI properties every week. I have stayed here before. Just not a good stay. The shower floor was also dirty. Any other stay I have made here was nice. Not like me to complain but surprised that no one said anything to a Elite member with over 300,000 HI points.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by theangelrod The cleanest rooms and softest beds for the price
I had the pleasure of staying at a Holiday Inn Express 4 years ago while away on business and I'm still impressed at the comfort, cleanliness and great staff today. The breakfast is pretty awesome as well with enough choices to satisfy any appetite. My stay this time was for 3 days and I enjoyed them all.
Looking forward to my next stay!

Nice hotel. Stayed for just one night during Spring Break while visiting family in San Antonio. Room was great and easily accomodated family of four. We had a room with one King size bed and a sofa bed. Great price for the room. Lots of restaurants in the area and there is also a Target close by. Kids enjoyed the pancakes for breakfast. Nice stay. I would recommend this hotel to others.

The front desk staff tell guests they can have late check-outs but end up calling you at 11:30am to tell you that you need to be get out by noon. I talked to the hotels GM and was offered a 10% discount for the inconvenience and I told Versha that wasn't good enough. Versha then asked me if I wanted a free night in a sarcastic tone and I said yes and Versha laughed and said that wasn't going to happen. I think this hotels management needs to go back to Management 101 and Customer Service 101. Don't lie to your guests and wake them up with a rude awakening phone call to get out of the hotel.

We enjoyed the space in the family room. There was a sleeper sofa and full sized refrigerator. The room and staff were nice. The location was a bit out of town. The one negative thing was the pool. It was close to the interstate and very small.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Corpus24 Nice rooms not so great service
This is the second time staying at this Holiday Inn Express and I have to say I was not very happy with the stay. From the time of check in the front desk staff was not helpful at all. They were a bit rude and seemed very annoyed when a question was asked, I just felt like a welcome was not given. On my last night of staying I was wanting to stay another night so as the front desk if that was possible. I understand that they were booked for the next night but the answer I was given was again very rude and was quickly told No I would think that they could have been a lot more helpful then what they were. I ended up getting another room some where else and upon arrival was greeted very nicely and was told all the ammenities the place had to offer. I don't think I will be returning to this Holiday Inn Express in the future. I will say in regards to the rooms they are very nice and the cleanliness is on key. Thank you for that.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Veryunlikely Not so great service
When I called to make reservations was told a different price when I checked in . The room was very musky smelling like it hadn't been cleaned. After coming from our outing after midnight there was no where to park, therefore had to park in the culdesac which is outside of the hotel with no lighting. The tub did not drain therefore causing the water to come just above the ankles when you take a shower. The pool and the hot tub was not clean. Last but not least, when I checked in I requested late check-out which was to be 2:00 p.m. and when it come for that day to check out Rebecca called me @11:30 A.M. to remind me that check-out time was at 11:00 A.M.,and I told her that I was aware of that and that I had requested a late check-out at check-in. She treated me like I was not telling her the truth.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Nice Hotel - Fantastic Price
I stayed at the hotel last week for a one night business stay. Travelling with three co-workers. Nice hotel. We stay at Holiday Inn's on a regular basis and this is a smaller, newer hotel. Set off Highway 281 North, it took us 10 minutes to get to hotel from Airport and it was an easy drive in the late afternoon. Front desk staff was efficient and check in for multiple rooms was quick. Agent was knowledgeable about the area and gave us some good suggestions for dinner. Room was comfortable and good Internet signal. Breakfast was good with the usual eggs, bacon, etc. Breakfast was busy. Only one treadmill in fitness room. We selected the hotel because of the location and the really great price. Met our needs and I recommend to others. We will be back to stay in three weeks.

Site does not offer Priority Platinum guest any amenities like water or snack unless you want to pay 2.00 for a small bottle of water. When I asked if they serve cookies they said they do not do that either. When I asked what they did offer upper level members I was told "A comfortable bed and a breakfast" and that was it. Person was not rude just to "Matter of Fact" Only one business center computer worked, but no sound.
