Pros. Location was only good thing

Cons. Front desk staff - mainly evening time not helpful at all . Seemed to not care. No parking on site for free as advertised

Anonymous, Oct 2015

Pros. Cheapest hotel available that close to Riverwalk. Breakfast was included. Furnishings are worn, but clean.

Cons. Small, dark parking area (which you pay for.) AC in room asks to not turn below 74 (Texas is hot, even in October). No ice machine on 2nd floor.
