Rented this room for one night and have to say that it was better than I expected. The room was pretty clean and didn't show any signs of neglect. The bathroom was clean and stocked with the usual items like bath soap, shampoo, hair dryer, etc. The room had a small microwave, coffee maker, TV with cable and small refrigerator. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The continental breakfast was pretty good. Wide variety of items. The sausage was a little under-cooked but everything was ok. We had a little challenge finding places to eat (late in the evening) close to the hotel. The GPS had referred us to a couple of place that had closed. Overall good experience and would stay there again.

I went to the service department for an unexpected repair during Labor Day (wife decided to see if the car would run on diesel fuel). I called Universal Toyota and happen to speak to Mr King (Service Director) about my problem. He helped me find a tow truck to pickup my car and once I arrived, he and Marshall took care of me quick. They gave me a couple of options for correcting the problem--saving me money in the process. The one thing that would have been nice is a courtesy car wash. I guess you have to ask for one and there is a charge. I've been to other Toyota dealerships that will run your car through the wash even if you just have an oil change done. In any case, aside from the problem my wife created--I was satisfied with the service I received from Universal Toyota. Gave only 4 stars because I felt I could have been given a free carwash after spending $500+ on service/repair.

My actual rating would really be about 2.5 stars--mainly for atmosphere and service. We had a group event (about 18-20 people) at this place so I got the opportunity to eat at this place for the first time. When you enter this place--you really feel like you're at one of those seaside resorts with a restaurant. Very festive like another reviewer said. The place is very clean and there's a lot of space to talk with friends/family if you're waiting to be seated. I'm sure the outdoor seating is nice during cooler weather. We lucked out, because got their around 5:30p--before the weekend real dinner rush. Once seated--the waiters took our orders for drinks and food. Both came relatively quick--probably because the place was not yet crowded with people. I ordered a Chicken Quesadilla Plate, but it was far from what I expected. It was more like a chicken fajita plate with rice, beans lettuce and guacamole (like what you would get at Taco Cabana) and ice tea for $18.25 (with 20% gratuity 6+ people). This plate included one small tortilla with some chicken in it, a little bit of rice and beans and just enough lettuce/guacamole to fill a taco. That was it. Too much $$ for too little. There are other better places to get Mexican food. Don't let this place make you form an negative opinion about the quality of Mexican food served in San Antonio. If you don't care about the food (or want to save money)--you're better off going to a Taco Cabana and ordering a Chicken/Beef Fajita Plate. At least you get two soft tacos with chicken/beef, a good helping of beans, rice and condiments at two extra soft tortillas and a large tea for half the price and you don't even have to leave a tip. I probably won't be going out of my way to revisit this restaurant.
