    Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Sunset Suites-Riverwalk San Antonio

    Wonderful Stay


    This hotel was a totally delightful place to stay. Check in and check out was very pleasant and the gentleman at the front desk was very gracious. The lobby is a renovated building but the rooms were brand new and beautifully furnished. The bathroom was very clean with plenty of towels. The breakfast was better than most hotel breakfasts with scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon, home fries and various beverages, cereals, fruits etc. This hotel is an easy walk to the Riverwalk Center Mall and the Riverwalk - four blocks at most. There are two restaurants across the street and many others close by on the Riverwalk. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    P S if the train noise bothers you - wear ear plugs !

    Great Value and Location but Train Noise an Issue


    We are currently guests at this hotel and find that it has many plusses. The beds are amazingly comfortable, the rooms are spacious, the parking is free, and it is just a short walk to the Riverwalk. The only minus for my family is the freight trains that run all night and blow their whistles repeatedly for a couple of minutes whenever they pass. I was not woken up by this, but my husband was up five times last night from these trains. If you are a light sleeper, this would be something to consider. My husband is going to try my earplugs tonight, and I think that will solve the problem for him. Otherwise, I think this hotel is a great value and doesn't feel like a budget hotel in any way.

    Save aa Bundle! Great Customer Service


    I travel quite a bit for my job. This hotel a GREAT place to stay if you want to be by the Riverwalk but don't want to pay the high prices. It's nothing really fancy but they have super comfy beds and all rooms are suites so there is a mini fridge in each room! The room was very clean and the front desk was very helpful. They have a great buffet in the morning for less than $3. AND FREE PARKING. So you save a ton vs. some of the other hotels or trying to park close to the Riverwalk. LOVED IT. Would stay a

    Best place to stay near the Riverwalk for the price.


    My daughter travels to San Antonio weekly for business. The Sunset Suites has been a great place for her to stay. This past week I went with her for a few days. The rooms are great. They are clean, roomy and fresh. The motel is everything it says it is. Ride the trolley to get to the Riverwalk. You can walk, it isn't very far, but you have to walk under an overpass and by a bus stop. I did it twice, during the day. I was never scared but stayed aware of my surroundings. The trolley drivers are helpful and you can get on very close to the motel. It costs less than a dollar every time you get on and ride. It is worth it. My only advice on the rooms: Ask for a parking lot view room. The rooms that face the street are vehicle noisy. This motel is great for business travel, or if adults are there for the shopping and the restaurants. I would not use this for a family place to stay.

    Wonderful Place to Stay


    The rooms were very nice and comfortable. The entire hotel was clean and the staff great. Good breakfast, for which they charged $2.98, but it was so ample!! Close to the trolly line and close to the action. The manager Mark was super!!!

    Worth Every Penny


    The hotel was very nice. The rooms were very clean and spacious. It was located a couple of blocks from the Rivercenter Mall and the Riverwalk. We rode the "Via" to an event at the SBC Center and it took us like 10 minutes to get there from the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The beds were soooo comfortable, it was hard getting up in the morning. The only two things that could have been a little better was the breakfast and the elevators. The breakfast was horrible and the elevators were sooooo slow. It took forever to get to our room on the fourth floor. Even though you could hear the train sometimes at night, it only lasted a couple of minutes and was not very loud. Other than that we had a nice stay and would definitely stay there again.

    Great get-a-way


    My friend & I were here on June 11th - 13th. We really enjoyed the stay. Beds and furniture were very comfortable, and the room was very well kept. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The only thing I didn't like was that you have to pay $2.00 for breakfast, and there is not enough room in dining room for everyone to sit. Other than that I highly recommend that you stay here on your next visit.

    Great Experience


    I was a bit nervous about staying here based on the previous review and the freight train. But our experience was great. The rooms are very roomy, the staff was pleasant and yes there was a freight train everynight, but unless you are a very light sleeper the train should not bother you. The location of the hotel is great. Very close to the riverwalk (5 minutes) but without the Riverwalk prices. The only fault I was able to find was the AC in the rooom was a bit loud but all in all a great hotel. Would definitetly stay here again.

    Fine for train spotters


    Lovely clean hotel, spacious rooms (3 adults, 1 child in one room, 2 adults stayed in another) stayed one night. Complimentary breakfast, free wine and beer from 5-6pm each evening. However it is close to the railway tracks (Sunset station area) and freight trains ran all night, blowing their horn on the long entrance into the station every hour.

    Now some of our party didn't hear it and slept well but I had a very disturbed night. So for that reason, I wouldn't stay there again.

    Best Western Sunset great


    Perfect location for Alamo Dome events. Short 2 block walk. Also perfect for those traveling by Amtrak. Close to River Center Mall and river walk. On trolley route. Excellent rooms.

    Shopping ... unsuccessfully

    A travel blog entry by jason934 on Oct 08, 2015

    Our only activity today was an attempt to get the suitcases fuller before we head home in three weeks. We went to many stores over 6 hours and didn't get much at all, despite trying on lots of clothes. The day was pretty warm but it got overcast so the day was comfortable despite being in the late 80s. For lunch we had Taco Bell and for dinner we had ...

Outside we saw some cool animals including fennec fox, white lion, macaw, prairie dog and hyenas. Some of the cages seemed inappropriate for the animals, in that they were pretty basic and concrete. For dinner we went to Wendy's and had some ...

    ... lit up the city's official tree, the holiday season was inaugurated with a procession of floats through downtown. Ranging from charming to raucous to laughable, the San Antonio holiday parade certainly didn't disappoint. As we walked back to the hotel, we were surrounded by joyful people on the streets, and a city literally aglow with holiday cheer. As we left San Antonio, our hearts were certainly a bit warmer with appreciation.

    Last weekend Rich and Brian had some father and son time while they went to the motorcycle races in Austin.

    This Wednesday we went to the Riverwalk in downtown San Antonio and took the boat ride and had some lunch. It is so beautiful there and the weather was great.
