This place was something new that my family and I decided to try. For a family of four, 2 adults and 2 kids the bill was $38 buck for burgers and shakes. The burgers were good, but the price was not. I really have no problem paying that kind of price at a restaurant, but for burgers....? The…

I have visited this location for dinner several times but this last visit was the first time I have ever ordered dessert. I ordered their dessert minis which are strawberry cheesecake, key lime pie, and chocolate trifle. I ordered one of each and thought they were very cute when the waitress brought them out. They were all lined up in shot glass like dishes with the spoon sticking straight out. For being so small they defiantly got your attention. The Cheesecake was probably my favorite, it was nice and creamy and had a wonderful flavor in the graham cracker crust and paired with the strawberries was very delicious. It was also a nice alternative to the traditional presentation of cheesecake. The key lime pie i didn't like so much though. The flavor of the key lime was pretty spot on it was just the crust that made the dessert not what it could have been. The crust tasted as if it could have been frozen and then thawed out or like a stale vanilla wafer cookie crumble. The chocolate trifle would have been my favorite since it was for sure made for a chocolate lover like myself but the mousse that was layered in between the cake was a one-note item. It had great texture but that was about all you got from it, it needed some added flavor like a liquor or a coffee or hazelnut or something to give it something special. The chocolate cake that was in it though was very good and my favorite part of that dessert it was light and moist and had just the right amount of chocolate flavor. One thing about the cheesecake and key lime that i didn't like was the whipped cream. It tasted like it came from a can and a bit oily it was not anything like a fresh whipped cream so that is one thing i would definitely change. I had a overall great experience and minus the few set backs in the desserts i did really enjoy them. I would just suggest a few alterations and then i would most defiantly order them again.
We booked thru Hotels.com and thought a three star won't be that bad. We were on a budget this week and I was very sick the day we checked in. We stayed 4 days.Checkin took a bit due to someone telling the hotel guy their life story ( as I was ready to pass out)! But he was prob the owner and was very nice with them and me. I did have my little service animal with me and that was no problem. But he did mention that he DID have a service Animal problem recently with a large hairy dog. I assured him my Yorkie does not shed. So on to our room we went. He gave us first floor easy access with dog and loading our stuff into the room.Now the room was nice and cool cause it was 92 out ! So the ROOM was recently remodeled and verrrry clean. Nice granite walls in shower too. The beds were also newer and very comfy. We got two full beds so I could spread out.. ya know??! Lol. My Ruby also had a great time being stationary!I wandered down around 8:45 for breakfast and not much left! Mmm had some Raisin Bran and a hard boiled egg. They were actually still warm ! Nice! Some Asian lady horded huge amounts of food to her room ( like they haven't eaten in a week!) always awful and they have no shame.Everything was a piece of a drive for food but that was ok. We discovered a Chinese/ Phillipino food place about two miles away. It was MAKAI , very good Lumpia and everything Phillipino.I really wanted to go in the pool but was u see the weather and just too hot! So we would stay here again in a pinch for the budget.
I haven't been in San Antonio in over 6 years and a buddy of mine agreed to try this place for dinner. When you walk in, the entire area looks like it has not been vacuumed in at least two days. The woman who seated us was rude and quickly told us that our waitress will be with us and walked off to talk to someone near the bar. We ordered the steak and wild mushroom flat bread, and boy was it flat. It fell apart when you tried to pick it up and the quality of the food was mediocre at best. Halfway through my coca-cola, I had the distinct pleasure of having something that was not ice go into my mouth. It looked like part of a nail, but I couldn't be sure. I got passed it and got another drink. This particular restaurant has an outside section to be able to view the RiverWalk and we witnessed over 25 pigeons, ranging from different sizes of height and weight having their way around two tables that had leftover food and plates from previous patrons who had left. It got so bad that another patron tried to get the pigeons to fly away. After 10 minutes of this and myself and others filing this, one of the waiters finally came out and tried to remove the plates. I ordered the New York 12 ounce steak and it was cooked very well. I didn't have any complaints regarding the steak, broccoli and potato. This is honestly not that bad of a place to eat, I will more than likely never eat there again just because of the issues I had when I went.
I don't know why this place has so many bad reviews but our experience there was great! The man at the check-in desk was super friendly and helpful. Our room was nice, we had a king bed, tv, microwave, and refrigerator. I saw a review online that said they didn't have many channels and that their wifi didn't work but they had over 60 channels and the wifi worked great when I hooked it up to my room. Another review also said that the rooms smelled like smoke which is not true. The main hallway has somewhat of an odor of smoke to it but only because some rooms are smoking and some are not, so that makes sense. The rooms that are for smokers are next to each other and the ones for non smoking are together as well so there should not be a problem with the smell. The room was very clean,so where the sheets. I had to check them because I read reviews saying that they were stained, which again was proven to be wrong. I went there dreading my stay due to all of the negative reviews but it turned out to be great! It was comfortable and everything in downtown San Antonio was in walking distance. I will definitely be staying here next time we visit San Antonio. My advice is ignore all the negative reviews and see for yourself. It's a very good price and a comfortable stay!
This Travelodge is not an upscale place to stay, but for the rate it was fine. I was never in doubt as to the quality of those things that counted. The internet worked well once I figured out my computer configuration issue which was not the fault of the motel's internet. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Above all, the staff (really the owners) were helpful and courteous. The location is a bit tricky to get to if you are coming from the downtown direction going East, so get off I-10 at exit 160 and follow the surface road paralleling the expressway to the first road that goes under the expressway, cross over to the North side and then go back to the motel. Make sure you take the first crossover or you will be tangled up in the I-10/I-410 crossover and have to go through several lights to get going back West. There are tons of places to stay and the Chinese from the delivery place with the flyers at the desk is really good.
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.
Now When we want a nice diner or lunch we go to Meson. The food is very very good we was there a few days ago for diner and to day we went for lunch We ordered the Ceasar Salad for two prepared table side and their lunch day special which was crab meat sauteed with a reduction of batter and wine with a hint of east indian spices, friend order the grilled salmon which was fresh and juicy, the Ice Tea and lemonade was the best we ever have, we complement the waiter and he said they use Kangen Water to make their tea, coffee and their thing in the restaurant. They have a full bar with very large wine list at very good price and private room for meeting. The place is beautiful and the people are nice.We recommend

And I must say this hotel is most definitely a five star hotel especially when it comes to customer service from the a.m. Maintance personal helping my best friend and I with our lugage to our rooms Too Compliamentary warm Morning breakfast waiting on us. This is a very comfortable and beautiful get away Hotel and I most certainly will be back! And did i mention this hotel is very clean and has a very nice view to their deep blue pool!!!
Me and my SO stayed here because we went to watch the Spurs VS Heat game on Sunday. Even though we checked in late, it was a speedy check-in and the employee was nice and courteous. Internet worked fantastic, and their breakfast was very much enjoyable. This is one of the few hotels that I've stayed at that has a big variety of choices when it came to breakfast! We even got to enjoy the pool and relax for an hour before checking out. Great hotel, will be our choice when we are in San Antonio next time!
