Odessa to San Antonio 350 miles

A travel blog entry by jan-pete-cycle

Left hotel after breakfast at 10 and set TomTom for San Antonio but on minor roads again. Pass through lots of small towns, a lot of the shops on the main streets seem closed - wonder where all these people work, on the land or oil fields I guess. More wind farms on the hills again, Peter gets quite excited when he gets a bend in the road as it's so unusual - thank goodness for the cruise control. Stop for petrol at Ozona, it's still $3.34 a gallon (although US gallons are ...

Catrina is a precious treasure to us. She is a beautiful example of a woman that seeks the Lord. She is always moving toward being the very best person she can be. She has raised three fabulous children that today love the Lord. She has created a home that is not only one of beauty, but it is one that feels safe and secure to those who enter. She ...

San Antonio: Alamo and Riverwalk

... stop of the day is the Alamo. We didn’t know what to expect; which was probably a good thing. The Alamo is full of history—but we are not familiar with any of it, so we are always anxious to learn new things. There is essentially a fort area with several main buildings. The gift shop is the largest building. The shrine is the primary destination building of the Alamo. This building is basically empty and has a few small ...

Lucky for Steve it was only a shorting gallery in the Saloon. Lucky, because my shooting was near enough to perfect. Well good enough to take a nuisance down at a hundred paces. Next stop Port Aransas, down on the Texas/Mexican ...

    Radisson fine if you only want a place to sleep

    from

    Husband had a conference at hotel, so we decided to make a long weekend of it September 16-19, 2004. The hotel is on the yellow trolley route or you can take their van if you want to visit the Riverwalk or Market Square. I recommend taking the trolley back to the hotel as you go through "voicemail hell" if you try to call and have the van pick you up. Hubby missed lunch on Friday because there was only one restaurant at the hotel with at least three separate groups all trying to eat at once. He didn't see any other restaurants within walking distance and only had an hour to eat so catching the trolley wasn't an option. The coffee shop and bar need to expand their hours. The room air conditioner works well but is really noisy--we started turning it up full blast while we were gone so we could turn it off when we went to bed. Mattress was fine but pillows were small and lumpy. Front desk was great about sending up an extra pillow and regular coffee (our room only had decaffinated).

    Great value, great location

    from

    I stayed at this Radisson the night of Aug. 21 when my best friend and I went to the Alamo City. He had stayed there before and recommended it. We got a $79.95 a night rate off Orbitz, and it was great. The rooms were huge -- plenty of room to spread out and relax. Ample-sized bathroom. The a/c worked fantastically (if a little loud). I'd def. recommend staying at this property again.

    I give the Radisson Hotel Market Square an A

    from

    I was very pleased with the Radisson. I booked a "hotel" online at another place and it was a nightmare as soon as I saw what a mess it was I was outta there! We got two rooms at the Radisson with out any problems whatsoever. As soon as I walked into the Radission I was relaxed. Our room was clean from the bed to the bathroom and everything else as well and the pool was beautiful. They also have a van that picks you up in front of the lobby and drops you off in front of the river walk for FREE! It was a wonderful weekend after all. I give this hotel a A.

    Great choice the Raddison Inn Market Square

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Raddison Inn Market Square and it was a wonderful experience. Everyone was real professional and very nice. We look forward in returning to San Antonio, Thanks

    Not Impressive

    from

    This isn't a very impressive hotel. The room wasn't in especially good shape--big spot on the carpet, bathroom fixtures not very good--and the service was mediocre. Our room somehow got overlooked by the housekeeping staff one day and never got cleaned. Folks at the desk and the restaurant were okay but not especially helpful. The location isn't great--a significant hike to Riverwalk or take the shuttle, which is a bit of a hassle.

    Pretty Good, good price

    from

    We stayed three nights over the Memorial Day weekend after booking on Quikbook for $75/night.

    Roomwas nice, location good (On Riverwalk would be better, but not at asking price). Parking included, on streetcar stop, shuttle available. Easy walk to Market Square but shuttle driver will take you. Not five star but well above average. The Korea comment is hard to relate to the place I stayed.

    Nightmare!!!

    from

    I had a horrible experience with my hotel room. I booked a standard room and it was absolutely filthy! The bedspread had visible stains on it and the sheets appreared to not have been changed. They had hair all over them and I couldn't help but be grossed out! The entire room was damp and had a funky smell. I will never stay here again!!!

    Terrible - so bad it became funny

    from

    This hotel is quite possibly the worst I have stayed at since one ill advised choice in Korea....

    Great Price Great Place!

    from

    This hotel was very clean and the staff was extremely helpful. Great location, easy to find and offered shuttle service. Would stay again.

    Fine for 2 night stay

    from

    We just returned from a 2 night stay at the Downtown Radisson with our 2 children(5 and 2 yrs old). We travelled from Houston to go to SeaWorld and do the Riverwalk and just wanted somewhere to stay which wasn't too expensive. I got us a good deal for $79 dollars a night and the hotel was fine. Breakfast was OK and the staff were friendly, especially on arrival at the reception. The outdoor pool was a big hit with our children and the room was OK with enough room for 4 of us. The free shuttle bus is a great idea too. I am not being harsh with a 3 circle rating as I wouldn't say the room/food was above average but it was a pleasant stay and the room was clean with friendly staff and nice pool.
