For all the walking we did yesterday, today we sat about the same time, at least it felt like it.
We took several breaks. One of which was Rayne, LA 'Frog Capital of the World." We didn't have a chance to ask the locals just how many frogs you have to have to qualify for such a title as it really should have been named, "Mosquito Capital of the …

... less than the. UK), the car seems to be doing around 23mpg so not too bad. Then after a while we seem to leave the flatlands and the landscape is more undulating although road looks a little wet and the sky looks ominous ahead. As we get to San Antonio it starts REALLY raining and we forgot that we left TomTom on shortest route so we find ourselves taken off the highway and in tons of traffic heading to town. Decide to quickly change to fastest and then we're taken back ...

San Antonio: Alamo and Riverwalk

... but mostly expensive so we did not do any shopping. We found a little Mexican restaurant that had seating outside. We shared nachos and watched people for a couple of hours. There were gondola type boats floating. Ducks and birds walked freely in and out of the restaurants, which was cute and yet somewhat disturbing.

After lunch and enjoying a short walk down the Riverwalk, we decide to head toward our car and leave San ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn San Antonio Downtown (River Walk)

    Not as good as other Hamptons

    from

    Dec 27-30 - three nights

    Far from Riverwalk

    from

    Rooms were average Hampton Inn rooms, except maybe a bit shabbier. Breakfast was ok, thought the eating area wasn't very nice. I thought this would be right at the riverwalk. While you could walk there, it was too far to walk alone after dark and there were deserted areas between the hotel and riverwalk. Also be sure you ask for a room not on the freeway side as it is quite noisy.

    Big Price, basic Hampton

    from

    We stayed at the Hampton in November. It was faily convenient to the Riverwalk/Alamo area, however, the walk back at night could be scary. It's the basic Hampton; the carpet was stained. For the price, I wish we had stayed someone more upscale.

    Great Stay!!!

    from

    We visited San Antonio and had a wonderful time. Our hotel room was very neat and clean. The staff was cheerful and very accomodating. The breakfast was excellent. I recommend Hampton Inn Riverwalk. I would like to visit again.

    Slippage in quality at downtown Hampton

    from

    Just returned from 2 weeks in TX including 5 nights at the downtown San Antonio Hampton. Had stayed there 6 years ago and noticed that the quality has slipped. Hallway rugs are stained and sheets and blankets showed wear and were thin in spots. Mattress pads were small and didn't cover the entire top of the bed under the bottom sheet so one slept on ridges. One night got into bed to find no pillowcases on the pillows! The wardrobe had a missing handle on one door. The staff was friendly and tried to solve any problems and even gave us one free night (after no pillowcases!) but it is time for this property to be refurbished. It is reasonably priced and very convenient to the riverwalk and the Alamo. Would we stay there again? Possibly, but there's a new La Quinta nearly completed 2 blocks away which I'll certainly inquire about next visit.

    Hampton Inn is very good for price and location

    from

    Stayed during the week on Wed and Thur nights on Oct. 8,9, 2003. Got a rate of $50 per night through Priceline as opposed to $125 rack rate. Probably because it was off season and during the week. Really close to the Alamo and the Rivercenter Mall. About 2-3 blocks. Streetcar stop ($ 1 fare) is about 4 blocks away. Very safe area. No need to drive. Great continental breafast with juice, coffee, milk, bagels,muffins,doughnuts, etc. Very nice staff. Rooms clean. Very quiet. Guests are very nice people. Pool was clean and still open in Oct. Hotel is 6 floors and has 2 elevators. Very good for families. We had 2 adults, 3 children and 1 infant in a room with King bed, sofa sleeper and were very comfortable. Rooms on the riverwalk are exorbant prices ($170 a night and up). You can save a lot of money staying here and be close to everything. We walked everywhere or took the streetcar. Very easy to explore King William district and all of downtown including Hemisphere park. Housekeeping accidentally mixed up the baby's sleeping wedge with the sheets while changing the sheets to the bed. We called and they were very helpful in returning it. It was washed also. No frills but has all you need especially for families. I recommend this hotel. Recommend Rosario's in Southtown (ride the streetcar) and Schilo's deli. Great Wienerschnitzel, beer and kids food at great prices for the riverwalk area. A great vacation and the Hampton Inn was a good choice for a base of operations.

    Great value and location

    from

    This hotel was perfect for us. Nothing fancy, but very clean, convenient, and cheap. The woman at the front counter was the friendliest hotel person I've encountered. It's about a block from the Rivercenter Mall entrance. One caution - it's very close to the freeway, and there was a car break-in while we were there. Just park in front if possible and avoid leaving valuables (golf clubs were stolen) in plain view. Other than that it was great. I would definitely stay here again.

    Unacceptable Guest Rooms

    from

    the hallway carpets were stained and we didn't daremove in the elevators for fear they would fall at anyminute. Our guest room, VERY dirty. Mold/mildew in bedroom, tub drainage problems, received 100% satisfaction for Friday night. We choose tomove to a new room Saturday night instead of a newhotel, bad choice. The new room still had mold/mildew on the ceiling in the bathroom, torn wallpaper, the bed blankets and comforters stained-YUCK!!!!!I was embarrassed to complain about the new roombecause I didn't want to sound like someone who wanted something for nothing. But a clean, comfortable room is something Hilton Honor members should expect from a hotel. I'm disappointed that I used my Hilton Honors reward certificate for even one night at this location.

    Great stay!

    from

    this hotel was GREAT! it is perfect for families and couples. it has the perfect location/comfort /price combination and its breakfast is so rich that it looks like a lunch buffet. I will definitely stay in it whenever i go back to san antonio.

    Great Time In Texas

    from

    Great place for less money than the $$$ Hotels , able to walk to most of the attractions, River walk, Alamo, and Alamodome. If you don't want to walk, 50 cent trolley is close by. Staff very helpfull and nice. Highly recommended.
