... Then the problems started. We had purchased the GPS on 11/11/11 along with some other items and I had the receipt with me since I had registered the product with Camping World. Of course that was before the big merger with Good Sam, keep that in mind! We had also purchased a three year replacement plan, also registered with Camping World. They had to call the insurance section in order to get approval for the replacement and the lady at CW was having an extremely difficult ...
Together we have almost twenty years sober. But most of the time we act like children; clumsy, emotional and misunderstood. I am critical, and impulsive, she is trusting and reckless. Most of the last two days I've spent finding the balance between the child in me, and the adult. I tell her to slow down, stop playing, look straight ahead. Words that often put out the fire in us, but keep us safe. ...
Left for Brisbane, Australia today! 16 hour flight from Dallas to Brisbane non-stop. eek! Fortunately, I was extremely tired so I passed out right after dinner was served. Did I mention they gave us PJ's? Yep, PJ's!! You gotta love flying business class on ...

... towns and dirt and horses. That's what I'm seeing at the moment - driving through the middle of no where. But both cities are completely opposites to what you would expect. Nothing like Western movies and both cities are worth visiting. It would be good through to visit somewhere like Houston or Dallas to get the other side of view - the 'we love George Bush' prospective. Most Texans we spoke to live in Austin or San Antonio for this ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Wyndham San Antonio Riverwalk
Great Place to Stay !!!
I would recommend this hotel to all. Very clean. Staff was quite helpful !!! Easy and safe access to the Riverwalk. 5-10 minute casual walk to restaurants on the Riverwalk. Stayed on the 15 th floor--nice view--not near elevator--- King room. Name change to Crowne Plaza in early July. Enjoyed our stay !!! 6/14-6/17
This was the first vacation my husband and I have been able to take in 3 years. Knowing this has been a stressful year for me, my husband splurged on the Romance Package. The desk clerk was reminded upon arrival, and we were suppose to receive our wine and chocolates at
Stayed at the Adam's Mark Hotel Apr 21-24, 2004. Beds were comfortable. Room was clean. We were on the fourth floor with a direct view of the roof. It is on the Riverwalk but a not in the central location of all the restaurants and shops. Wall were very thin in hotel, could hear conversations in next room. Seemed to have trouble cashing a $100 traveler's check. Gift shop girl told me she did not have change and did not offer anything else. I asked her what does she do when she runs out of change. She said she calls the front desk. I had to tell her, why don't you call them. I was sent to front desk and check was cashed. When I checked in the day before, the front desk clerk told me that they did not cash traveler's check but that there was a bank across the street. (---). Buffet breakfast was good.
Adams Mark must have been built thinking that the north side of downtown would "boom" sooner than it has. A bit far from downtown attractions and the Rivewalk, but not bad. We walked most places. Nice room, minimal amenities for the type of hotel it was. We were very disappointed that our pot of coffee and two orders of bagels (cited on the menu as a "selection of bagels") featured just a bagle each with creme cheese (no jams) and came to over $16.00, plus tip! (May I suggest you wander down to Shilo's on Commerce for a great "local" breakfast at about $5.75 a piece, or drive up to Taco Taco at Hildebrand and McCullough for a fantastic Mexican style breakfast -- migas, breakfast burritos, tortillas.. Both places have great wait-staff.) We might stay at the Adam's Mark again, but there are better values in "high end" hotels around.
Stay away from this run down, out dated place!!
I have no idea why the rating on this hotel is 4 stars. It is dirty, run down and the service is terrible. The rooms look like they have not been redecorated in about 15 years, the check in staff (Seahn, namely) is SOOOOO rude, and the breakfast waiter we had was awful. The food was cold and not very tasty. We were very disappointed, as this was an anticipated trip that was ruined. Do not waste your time at this place.
Go somewhere else!! I wish I had listened to the others that agree that this place SUCKS!!
We also did get 2 weekend night for $45 a night. Actually I got 2 rooms so I ended up impressing my friends when I told them how much their share of the total bill was. They had paid big bucks, over $150+ on not so nicer riverwalk hotels. I admit it's not close to the part of the riverwalk where much of the party gathering crowds roam but it's not that far either. My wife had the audacity of walking all the way to Rivercenter Mall, about 2 miles away and she had no problems and lots of fun doing it. Staff is very frienldy and got us good locations to dance some nice Salsa and to have great mexican breakfast buffet @ 4.95 per person, which included entertainment from a 9 young female members Mariachi band. Wife loved the place, I think it's called Estela's Restaurant. Hotel's daily self park is $9 and there's a very convenient underground walkway from parking lot to hotel's lower level. We previously stayed at Hilton Palacio del Rio and you have to walk thru traffic if you want to self park there. Again we were happy with this 3 star hotel at the price that we got it. We'll stay there again if we can get the same great deal. And if you like Salsa music, there's a nice and small place at the south end of Alamo street called "Bar Latino" but you have to get there early to get a table and enjoy the great live salsa music, one of the best we've heard. Crowd tends to be semi formal to dressy since there's a nice and trendy restaurant adjacent to the bar.
I got this hotel 3 months in advance through Priceline for $45/night (wish I'd started my bidding lower!). It's a decent upper-tier 3-star/lower-tier 4-star hotel. While technically on the riverwalk, it's at the far end of it. Kind of like getting a hotel billed as being on the strip in Vegas, only to find it's at one of the far, far ends of the strip.
Not really a 4 star
No ice machine on our floor, no mini bar in room, no HBO (have to pay for all movies), rude front desk.
Nice hotel. Not exactly on the Riverwalk, as is implied by the name, but within a couple blocks of it and the Alamo, letting you skip much of the traffic. Service is excellent--very attentive, from valet to the wait staff. Food is excellent; breakfast menu diverse and delicious (orange juice is fresh squeezed). Room service is very prompt and 24 hours. My standard room was uninspiring, though, from the decor to the amenities--no HBO, not enough outlets or room to iron, blandly decorated, mattress a bit of a dud. Nice gift shop. Valet or self park off-site (a bit of a walk through underground corridors). Easy access to major highways. Ask for a room not near noisy elevator shaft.
