Historical Traveler Reviews Drury Inn & Suites San Antonio Northwest Medical Center
If someone tries to break into your room, call 911-not the desk.
We picked the Drury for its reasonable price, two queen beds, full breakfast and close proximity to Fiesta Texas. That was the good part.
Now the bad:
Lack of security
In the middle of the night on our first night, we were awakened by someone pounding on our door, yelling "Open up!". When we asked who it was, he continued to beat on the door and yell. I guessed he was a drunken college student who forgot what room he was in. He put his hand over the peep hole and continued banging and yelling. I told him he had the wrong room, but he continued banging and yelling. I told him I was calling the manager (which we did). He yelled and kicked the door a couple of more times and disappeared. The manager never showed up or called back to check on us. If this is par for the course, I would not want my wife staying there by herself.
There were three in our party. On the first night we had four bath towels, four hand towels but only two washcloths. On the second night, we were down to one washcloth.
The area outside the front door was strewn with litter and cigarette butts. The lobby and elevators had food remnants on the floor.
The Drury is right off of I-10 (which is under major construction) in northwest San Antonio. Unless you turn the A/C on high, the highway noise will wake you frequently during the night. If you are driving west on I-10, you have to drive through a Holiday Inn parking lot to get to the Drury.
We were in SA for our son's graduation from US Air Force Basic Training. This hotel is only about 15 minutes from Lackland AFB, all interstate highway.
The hotel is very impressive with an open lobby similar to many Hyatt hotels. The rooms were very nice and very clean. There were many TV channels, free long distance and a free buffet dinner with wine and beer available gratis.
The staff was great, the parking free (an issue with downtown SA hotels) and I would definitely stay there again. We paid $80 a night.
Can't beat it for the price.
Was here interviewing for a job at a nearby hospital.
Nice free breakfast with hot foods and drinks.
Nice free beer and snacks on Thursdays.
Nice free internet.
Close to everything.
Only stay here if you like VERY soft beds!
we stayed here for one night last week. the room was basic and fine but the bed was so soft my husband said it was like sleeping on a boat! the breakfast was ok, but all the food seemed of cheap quality. we paid $90 plus tax which i feel is a little expensive. the next night we went to the best western across the car park - posada ana medical centre for $50 plus tax. the bed was much better. the room almost the exact same. as for the price difference i was told it was as the breakfast was not as good and there was no managers snacks and drinks in the evenings. well for $50 you can buy a lot of snacks!
A great place to stay!!
We were very impressed with this hotel. Such a great & friendly staff. We checked in at 11:00pm and were surprised to find that there were several people checking in at that time. They had us all checked in in a matter of minutes. I don't know how they did it. Everything was so clean. They had the biggest continental breakfast area I have ever seen. They had lots of things to choose from and plenty of seating areas. We didn't have a chance to use the pool/hot tub but we went to look at them and they were great. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Excellent mid-grade hotel
Stayed at Drury Inn & Suites Northwest on a day trip to San Antonio based on reviews from Trip Advisor and we loved it. Nice clean basic hotel. It's basically one of the closest interior hotels with an inside pool to Sea World (other that the two mega-expensive resorts in the Sea World area, which we wouldn't pay that much to stay anywhere, so those weren't even an option). There was a Comfort Inn (I think) closer but it had an exterior pool which we didn't want. And I refuse to stay in a motel that has doors facing the parking lot. I just don't feel safe (there are a few like that around Sea World if you don't have a problem staying in places like that.
For about $80 we got a two queen room with a free hot breakfast which was quite nice. I chose the make your own waffles since I knew it would be fresh. There are a couple of hotels in the same intersection as Drury, but it's kind of surprising that there aren't more nicer hotels like this one closer to Sea World. We were surprised by the drive from the hotel to Sea World and there really is just nothing around there. In Dallas everthing is built up around our theme parks, so it was shocking. Anyway. The hotel was fabulous for a mid-grade hotel. Fit our bill perfectly (an overnight stay). Thanks Drury Inn. Don't know if I'd stay there if I was in town for a while (not really a central location), but for a Sea World visit, it's perfect (unless you want to stay at one of the hill country resorts). I'd probably do that on an extended stay trip since they have some more reasonable packages.
Hope this help others (like the other reviews helped me decide.
We picked this Drury Inn because it was close to Six Flags Fiesta Texas. We had stayed at the Drury Inn on the Riverwalk first and enjoyed that. We arrived during snack time and realized that this Drury Inn had pizza and salad. We immediately liked this hotel. We enjoyed the pizza and drinks and made this our dinner since we were exhausted from being at a waterpark all day. The hotel was very clean and well equipped. Everyone was very nice. It took us less than 10 minutes to get to Fiesta Texas. There were plenty of restaurants and shops nearby the hotel. The hotel was very secure. You have to use your key to get in the pool, fitness center, business center, etc. The morning we left, my husband was packing the car very early and had to use his card to get back in the hotel. We had a nice time at this hotel and would recommend it to anyone.
Great hotel--very pleased!
This hotel was a great experience. We stayed two nights here after previously spending two nights at the Radisson Market Square. The Drury Inn was much nicer and I would highly recommend staying here. The room was clean with two queen beds. Most of the other hotels I checked into (including the Radisson) only had double beds. The bathroom had the shower and toilet in one room and the sink and mirror in the other--this is great so one of us could get hair and makeup done while someone else was showering. My only complaint was very low shower pressure. The plus to this hotel was the fact that they have a secure parking; staff was extremely friendly and courteous; hot breakfast (not just donuts and coffee) including make your own belgian waffle; laundry room for guests to use; pool was nice (inside); beautiful lobby; free drinks and snacks in the afternoon; very convenient to Sea World, Fiesta Texas, airport and downtown riverwalk. Price was less than $10 higher than the Radisson and was well worth the difference. We had to call the front desk for extra towels on two different occasions and they were brought up to our room in just a few minutes. I would highly recommend staying here as we were extremely pleased.
Stay at this one! It's a Great Hotel!
We were staying in San Antonio for two nights on our way to South Padre Island. We had to have two rooms--and I really wanted queen size beds. I booked two nights at the StudioPlus and expected one queen bed and one sofabed in each nonsmoking room. We ended up with one queen bed and a cheap recliner in each room, and one room had been smoked in--a lot! They were also down the hall from each other as they couldn't accomodate my request for adjoining rooms. It was terrible! We just about had to stay the first night, but I had an old newspaper insert from San Antonio Tourism with their promotional SAVE rates (I'm so glad I kept it). I called the Drury after we had checked in at the StudioPlus and realized what a mistake it was. The Drury rates seemed better than some of the other hotels on the SAVE list. I got two adjoining rooms for the next night w/2 queen beds in each. The rate was $79.99 per room. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The baths were also clean, had a lot of counter space, and lots of hot water with good pressure. The complimentary evening snack bar consisted of really good pizza and salad. The girl at the front desk was very nice and professional. She gave us coupons for free drinks--including mixed drinks and beer. It was great! The breakfast bar had sausage and biscuits, bagels, waffles, scrambled eggs, and different cereals. My kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool and exercise room. I also appreciated the security gate for parking. This hotel is so nice--I wish I would have booked it for the first night we were in San Antonio as well, but I just didn't know about it. It's practically across the interstate from the Studioplus--it's a nice part of town and convenient to Fiesta Texas and Seaworld. We didn't have to go out for dinner or breakfast the night we were there, so we ended up paying less for these rooms than we had at the cheaper (and yuckier) Studioplus. I'll certainly be back!
Wonderful hotel! Easy check in and very friendly staff. The rooms are very clean. There are a lot of great restaurants nearby. Fiesta Texas is not too far from the hotel either. Highly recommend!

Just about an hour drive to Wimberley - we parked and walked around the square. There were many gift and antique shops, and a few art shops as well. It is a cute little town, not as big as Fredricksburg, and a little more "artsy". Then we headed to Blue Hole - I had heard about this swimming spot from some friends a while back, so we ...

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.

Every nurse has shared the same struggles going through nursing school as well as ROTC, so it is easy to make friends because ...
