Ottimo posto per alloggiare
Abbiamo alloggiato al Comfort Suite per la laurea del nostro aviatore da Lackland. Dopo sette settimane di addestramento è stato contento di venire nella suite, guardare la televisione, e farsi un idromassaggio. Eravamo a 10-15 minuti dalla base e a 10-15 minuti dal centro di San Antonio, quindi in posizione molto comoda. Il personale è stato molto gentile e disponibile. Siamo stati molto soddisfatti della pulizia.
A great place to stay
We stayed at Comfort Suite for our airman's graduation from Lackland. After 7 weeks of training he enjoyed coming back to the suite, watching tv, and sitting in the jacuzzi.
We were 10 - 15 minutes from the base and 10 - 15 minutes from downtown San Antonio, so it was very convenient.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were impressed with the cleanliness.
Great Place for Seaworld Visitors
Comfort Suites is a great place to stay if your planning a trip to Seaworld!
Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful with restaurants, road directions etc...
Room (we had a king) was clean, comfortable and nice & new. Though this hotel was new when we stayed there. Only comment would be the sitting room did feel and look like it was all a bit squashed with a computer desk, coffee table, couch etc... Bed was lovely and on par with any high end hotel we've stayed in.
Pool and gym area, both indoors, are small. With the pool being more suited for kids than adults looking to do laps. On that note, we would advise a room away from this pool/gym area as we could imagine it being rather noisey while they are open for use.
Breakfast was not the 'usual' continental variety and had a good choice considering the price we paid to stay. Bonus was the waffle station they had! Though during our stay, we did get the impression that once the hot breakfast items run out, they do not get stocked back up. So get there early!
Location is really only ideal for Seaworld and would be a nightmare drive to the Riverwalk downtown we reckon. Usual chain restaurants and shops are nearby for evening meals and supplies.
The hotel does do discount tickets/coupons for Seaworld and other theme parks.
We would defintley stay there again!
Ditto to the other good reviews
I am so glad that I read TripAdvisor!
I am back in San Antonio to get my son who has just finished Tech School at Lackland. I appreciated the July review about this hotel. Just want to make note that it is Loop-410, not I-35 that runs near this hotel.
When we came for Basic Training graduation, we stayed on the River Walk and I am very glad we did. I wouldn't want to try to get to the River Walk from here. But, since I had no plans to do the River Walk this trip, this is a great place! Clean, well laid-out rooms, adequate breakfast, and even with construction, getting around isn't bad. Just allow for congestion on the access roads.
Great for Families/Sea World visit
We stayed here for a long weekend to go to Sea World with our 5 month old. It is a perfect hotel for families. Lots of families with kids, so we didn't feel too bad when our baby cried a few minutes before going to bed...other guests were in the same boat! The pool area was small but great for a swim after a day at Sea World. Good location, you might want to map it before you go- there is no visible sign from highway.
Great place for Sea World Visit
I used the "internet rate" for booking this hotel through their website and found it to be a great value for $116 a night. Everything was very clean as this hotel just opened in April 2006. The best part was the ability to close the door to the bedroom and have a TV in the sitting area as these are all suites. We have small children, so we put them to bed and didn't have to worry about being so quite or waking early to drink coffe and take a shower with others still sleeping. The breakfast was not much to write home about: biscuits with sausage gravy were okay, waffles were the best, eggs were not that great (like the power eggs). I will admit that everything I ate was fresh. The location was good also, a bit off the hwy, so not too much road noise. Only about 10 minutes from Sea World. The pool and fitness room looked great, but we didn't get a chance to use them. Overall great stay and we would definitely return!
Great for families going to Sea World
This is a great hotel for families that are going to goto Sea World. The hotel is only 10 minutes from Sea World. The suite we stayed in had 2 queen beds in the bedroom that was seperated by a door from the living area and bathroom. The bathroom had 2 sinks and a standard size tub. The living area had a TV, fridge, microwave and a love seat that pulled out to a twin sleeper.The staff was excellent. We called down for extra towels and 2 minutes later they were there. Breakfast was good. Standard carbs and fruits but they also had a waffle maker that was good. Indoor pool was nice. They have a business center that has a computer and internet access for free. There are tons of shopping around this hotel if you need something. A Walmart, Home Depot, Target, and all of your chain family restaurants(Chili's, Bennigans) and of cource Mc Donalds are all within 5 minutes of the hotel. I would stay at this hotel in a heartbeat if I ever goto Sea World again. Excellent place.
Good choice for Lackland BMT graduation
We just returned home from a stay at the Comfort Suites near Seaworld (Alamo Downs Parkway). We were in San Antonio for our son's graduation from Lackland basic training. The hotel is very nice, brand new, clean and roomy. We had 4 to 5 people in each room and had plenty of room for people & stuff. Nice indoor pool, nice area of town, close to Ingram Park Mall and theaters, restaurants and I-35. The rate was $160 per night (including tax), but dividing it between 2 families made it very reasonable and a much nicer hotel and neighborhood than those next to Lackland AFB for about the same price.
NOTE: We were completely unfamiliar with San Antonio and found some shortcuts that might be helpful to others in the future. To get to Lackland for your airman's graduation, go right (W) from the hotel back to the I-35 frontage road northbound, go (W) under the highway and get on southbound I-35, to the SECOND Lackland exit (NOT the first). Go to the stoplight, turn left onto Valley Hi and it goes straight into the Airmen's Gate of Lackland. The BMT reception center (where you'll spend a lot of time) is about two blocks ahead and a block or two to the right. The Valley Hi entrance is much less crowded in the mornings and is much closer to where you want to be.
We went to the Riverwalk on Saturday and found it very crowded and smelly and hot (yes, I realize it's July!). It would be much more pleasant in January or February!! But in fairness, there were a LOT of tourist groups in town besides the families of the 500+ BMT graduates, so everywhere was crowded.
Highly recommend the Comfort Suites-Seaworld. Hope this review is helpful!
Great Place to Stay
This is a new hotel and was very nice and clean. It is nice that they are all suites and we got a great rate of $107.99 per night by booking online through choice hotels directly (the chain that owns comfort suites). It is located about 5 to 10 minutes from Sea World.
They have a wonderful breakfast. Eggs, Biscuits & gravy, waffles, variety of cereals, yogurt, bagels, donuts, juices & coffee. Be sure to get there early, because some things that run out are not replenished. The only complaint I have about this hotel is the lighting in the dressing area is very dim, otherwise we had a great stay. Will definitely stay here again.

... view of the Hill Country from his back yard. We sat at his kitchen table and chatted, then went up to the Comfort Cafe for dinner (chicken-fried steak, patty melt, sweet tea - yum!). Mike was his usual personable and entertaining self - we said goodnight and headed back to the hotel to literally fall into bed.

... too exciting), then just walking around, then to the Menger hotel where we looked around in the lobby - interesting photos on the walls, etc. The Menger bar is where Teddy Roosevelt hung out in the day and recruited his Rough Riders - it really is a pretty bar, with all of the dark wood. We had a drink and then headed back to the hotel - it was Shark Week on TV, so we watched Jaws II, went to bed, and had nightmares.

We finally reached the campsite, checked in and hooked up the electric. After putting the air-con on, we had a wander round before having an early night, as tomorrow was our only full day in San Antonio and we wanted to make the most of it.

Today was a return to El Mercado (Market Square) in SA. This was a Saturday with many extra booths of food and trinkets, along with a stage with entertainment with local musicians and dancers. We could clearly see and hear them from the restaurant where we had a late lunch.
As this was to be our last visit to the market, any hesitation on purchases was going to mean--no sale! But, we ultimately decided to leave ...
