I travel the country for work and stay in different hotels every couple of days in different cities. I am very leery of motels that don't cost a lot of money. I chose this one because I was only in San Antonio for one night and it was closest to my destination. But I ended up staying for 4 days as my workload increased. This place impressed me. The accommodations were very clean. The staff was unbelievably personable and friendly. There was always someone making rounds keeping the place safe and clean. The parking lot was well-lit and the swimming pool was amazing. Everything I expect from a high-dollar motel I received here. The coffee was just like home. I hope whoever reading this takes my comments to heart as I am somewhat picky, and this place surpassed any expectation that I had.
This historic hotel definitely has many up sides (location near the Alamo and Riverwalk shops and plaza attractions). My family stayed here during Spring Break 2011 and we were disappointed with many things: "Mandatory" valet for $18.50 per night, cold powdered eggs for breakfast, small rooms for the $165 per night price. It's partnership with The Menger Hotel across the street allows kids to swim in a heated pool during early spring. This is a fabulous choice during off-season travel, but the staff at the Crockett does not handle capacity season well at all. Slow valet retrieval (30 mins) and terrible breakfast setup and hours (0630-0930) contributed to my review. Bottom Line: a $200 per night stay but below-average service and accommodations.
While I've always enjoyed staying at Fairfield Inns, a visit I recently had as a charter coach driver for a group of students to a state science fair in San Antonio was particularly memorable. As I believe all FIs have, this one has complimentary breakfasts. The menu items were typically good, but Rosemary, the "Breakfast Hostess" was the reason this visit will remain most memorable. Her gracious & charming personality sparkled in her eyes & smile as she [obviously] enjoyed preparing various items for her awaiting guests. She interacted joyfully with them & each was smiling in happy anticipation as she handed out the freshly prepared meals. She deserves a whole-hearted THANK YOU!!
if you don't drive a porsche or look over the age of 40, plan on getting treated like crap. My husband and I went here on our weekend getaway while he was down from Iraq and we are in our 20's, we're paying just like everyone else and the front desk staff was extremely rude to us. They let a cougar skip us and didn't say anything about it, just let her do it. I didn't say anything, but I did let them know when I checked out and now I am telling you! Everyone else in the hotel was extremely nice and very personable, even the guests! You can't beat the location and I felt very safe. The rooms are very nice and we didn't go to the bar because we had a stocked fridge :)!
I had a late check in, which I noted on my reservation I made through the Travelodge website. The woman at the counter was friendly when I got there at around 11 pm. Since I had my printed confirmation there was no problem. Yes the hotel is on the old side, but most in San Antonio are. As a woman traveling alone I felt much safer coming and going from this hotel than I did when I stayed downtown and parking was free and convenient at this hotel. The location is great, a little hard to find the first time, but convenient to the highway and lots of restaurants. Should I travel to San Antonio again I'll stay here again.
I cannot say enough kind things about the helpful and friendly staff at the travellodge. Our room was ready, clean and spacious. The continental breakfast was fresh and filling. I might add that they had a free gourmet coffee machine available 24 hrs in the lobby that was the best coffee in all of San Antonio. I really appreciated the staff going the extra mile and printing out our boarding passes for the following day. That was very helpful and they didn't have to do it. I would not think twice about staying there again or recommending it to someone else. They made you feel like family.
I stayed at this motel while in San Antonio for my cousin's graduation from Air Force basic training. It was about 5-7 min away from the base. The people at the front desk were nice and helpful. The room was very clean and comfortable. The coffee maker, fridge, and microwave were very convenient to have in the room. Since it is right off of the freeway, there are a lot of restaurants nearby. Overall I was very satisfied with this motel and I would recommend it to someone going to Lackland for the graduation if they wouldn't mind the 5 -1-0 min drive. ..
Although the booked room for my birthday weekend was amazingly small & I was told they were all the same size, I learned from a staffer that they weren't. I returned to the front desk and was given a small suite over looking the garden. The air conditioning unit was noisy. However, it was a charming suite, the room service and dining were very good. Time spent in the lobby with piano music and holiday decor was wonderfull. And the spa on the premises was perfect. I would stay again but be very choosy about my room/suite.

This hotel was great. Very comfortable. There was dust and hair in the corners. But that seems to be a problem with most hotels. They should carry a little broom to get in the corners. The breakfast was plentiful and they were on hand to refill anything that ran low. One morning we got there right at the end of breakfast, we quickly got what we were going to eat. The gentleman asked us if we wanted anything else before he put everything away. The staff is great.
