Decent quality Hotel with exceptional staff
Posted Sep 13, 2016
The San Antonio Airport La Quinta is a little off the beaten path. Most of the hotels near the airport are either along the north side of the 410 (Drury, Holiday Inn, Hilton, Double Tree) or over on the airport side of the 281 on Broadway. The La Quinta is tucked back behind a parking garage on the southern side of the 410 and literally in the shadow of the western edge of the 281.
Besides the fact that its tucked back in that corner. It is within walking distance of the North Star Mall, good eats at Cracker Barrell and Pappadeux's as well as Applebees.
The staff here are great. They were extremely helpful calling taxis for me in the morning and providing a late check out on my final day that lined up better with my flight, besides being friendly and generally good people.
The rooms are nothing spectacular but certainly acceptable. Typical airport hotel with clean, relatively updated rooms. The pool out back is very nice and the lobby elevator seems to always be waiting on my floor for me. About the only "disappointment' I had was there was no bin of oatmeal with the free breakfast... You had to made the instant kind (meh!) and the fitness room is 3 treadmills with a small pull down bar system.... A slightly larger, better outfitted gym would be a nice addition.
Beyond those two relatively small gripes. I'd come back... Price was best in town and the stay was as good as my stay at Holiday Inn (if not quite as palatial) last year, but for 1/2 the price.
