Everything was perfect except the wall plug ins and shower. Everytime I plugged in my phone the power socket was to loose to keep my charging box plugged in. The shower was not the best, I feel like they need to change the shower heads because I did not get good water pressure plus it would come out the faucet and shower head at the same time. Other than that ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL staff and a great breakfast and it is so close to everything we wanted to do which is mainly the riverwalk and around the Almo area very short walk to all places! Other than those two issuses my mother and I definitely enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be coming back and staying here. P. S. Great rates too!!!!

A quaint, well located hotel within walking distance of the River Walk and other local attractions! Staff was awesome. Parking is confusing. Definitely check in before entering any parking lot. The staff will give you a parking pass so that you can go in and out for the same $20. If you park next door you will not be able to leave without another $20 charge. Otherwise, great place!
