"beautiful hotel rooms kind of small"
Hotel was very pretty and tropical the room was clean but very small the rollaway bed we asked for hardly even fit in the room it was so small so very tight mostly spend time in the amenities like the bar and the breakfast buffet was very good although not free parking was not free so alot of extra expenses. Alrhough on the Riverwalk it was far from […] the main area of the Riverwalk where all the restaurants and bars are staff informed us of how far off the walk in we took a taxi although we saw the riverboat pick up people at from the hotel and we did not know about it I wish we hadI would stay here again as long as I had a room close to the pool and less people that I have to bring Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"San Antonio trip"
Great location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
fair value for the price. very friendly skimping on washcloths and towlesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall a nice hotel. Clean and comfortable for the weary traveler. Didn't appreciate that you have to pay extra for parking at the hotel ($18.00/day). I think it's a bit overpriced.Genuine Expedia guest review
The only thing wrong with Hotel is No complimentary Breakfast..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Edge of 'the hood'"
Well run older 60's property with a Miami vibe. Under-insulated and noisy. Partying guests kept us up. Frustrating lock problems made me go down to the desk about 5 times. Location problems: 5 blocks too far from Center of town. Right on the edge of scary downtown neighborhood with empty buildings. $18 parking cost. Surly 'breakfast waiter' gave me […] attitude and made me wait. Did not feel welcome. If it cost under one Benjamin a night, I'd feel it was about right, paid twice that. Won't stay here again.

"On the Riverwalk"
The hotel lobby was great. They had a great coffee bar and cocktail bar too. Would have wished the cocktail bar had longer hours. The hot wing were good. The rooms were a little small and hard to get around the bathroom set up. Shower was great. The room could have been a little cleaner, but over all for the great price we paid (we were on a budget […] this trip) It was a great experience for the money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Too far to walk to the riverwalk. I"
Hotel is across from riverwalk stairs and it takes 30 minutes to get to main part of riverwalk. Rooms are tiny. I left my phone behind in the room and it was never turned in!,,,,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the rooms were very outdated had a bad smell. The bathroom was very small. It all old,I wouldn't stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall the hotel was great. The only down fall was we booked with hotels.com and was promise extra things and didn't receive them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok Hotel, not worth full price"
When we got to the hotel we were disappointed about the location of our room. We were literally right outside the pool, which would have been ok if the music wasn't blaring. They didn't have another room to switch us so we decided to stick it out. When we were going to turn in for the night, the sheets were dirty. It took them over 2 hours to bring […] new sheets. They did comp the night and give us a discounted rate for the remainder of our stay. That was all fine until we noticed a dirty diaper under the bed. Needless to say we will not be back....

"Not even close to the Riverwalk district at all!!!"
Room smelled like mildew! Dog crying all night next door, all front desk has to say was"we'll leave a note"!!! Terrible! Live and learn.. I guess u get what u pay for, but this NOT a 3 star hotel..not even close!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Fun Family trip"
Everyone was so helpful and friendly, especially Brandon... The Manager, we'll def be coming back!! Great location for site seeing, and LOVE that it on the River Walk!! Thank you to your Great Staff!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a nice hotel, very clean and the people are very nice! Would definitely go back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Walking distance to Riverwalk"
Friendly staff; by map seems far but it was walking distance to riverwalk and alamodome.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Too expensive for quality"
When we arrived the room was clean but smelled like feet and was very stuffy. No microwave or fridge. We shared a balcony with other "loud" guests. Room we got was next to elevator. It was quite loud all night. Housekeeping skipped us our 2nd day but thankfully were able to get our clean towels from staff. We regret buying breakfast, each person pays […] $9.95 plus tax and it's just your regular "holiday inn" food. $18 each night for parking. First time we get charged for state, county and city tax. Friendly staff but owner may be cheap. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I thought El Tropicano has a certain retro charm to it, you can tell it's not from this century but they do a good job at embracing the theme while offering comfortable accommodations. The hotel is not necessarily close to the Riverwalk but it's probably about a 10-12-minute walk to the Alamo. There's not a whole lot else around it, but the hotel does […] have a decent looking bar and restaurant (which I did not get to try). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Built in 1962 and "looks good for its age""
While located near the River Walk, it is about a mile+ to get to anything interesting. We did not have our coffee service replenished after the first day unless we tracked down housekeeping. The room was dusty. One day they were short of towels and we did not get clean towels until late afternoon. The hallway carpeting is dingy and dirty. The bathroom […] had paint splatters all over the wall paper. The molding in the bathroom was deteriorating. The wall paper itself was parting at the seems. Amenities like the snack bar and the breakfast lounge are overpriced. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, but needs updating..."
It was a nice hotel. From the preview through Expedia, we thought it was 'on' the Riverwalk and not so far from it. Was a little too far to be within 'walking distance' for a night out on the town! Hotel Staff were very curtious and kind. Room was clean, beds were a-ok. 3.5 rating!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not On River Walk"
This is not really on the River Walk as one would think. We were there for 2 days and nights and their system was down the entire time. One could not enjoy a cocktail and charge to room as the system was down. They were doing some painting or gluing on our floor and the smell was overwhelming. Not doubt this motel needs upgrading but for goodness sake […] close the floor where the work is being done. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was close to the Riverwalk but far enough away from the chaos of general tourist activities that it made it very pleasant. The food at the hotel was very good and the hotel staff were great. I would definitely return!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good and bad"
The staff was really nice and accomidating. They are suppose to have a heated pool, but they don't turn it on until late March. They do not tell you that anywhere on the website. That is the main reason I chose this hotel, so I was very disappointed. The hotel is over a mile away from the main part of the riverwalk, so that is a minus too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Looks were deceiving on internet site. No fridge or microwave in rooms so we were given a HANDICAP room which had a view of the top of a roof and construction. Room was not clean and had a stagnant smell. We reserved a King room and got a Queen. We were way to far from any of the action on the Riverwalk and had to walk for 25 minutes to get there. Parking […] was horrible! we paid $18 xtra for parking and had NO valet and had to fight for a spot in a detached lot that had NO security! Hotel security was never seen while we were there. We checked out the next morning and went to a way nicer Hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A weekend honeymoon"
Very friendly and clean room. I liked the expresso cafe, good prices for lattes and snacks. Restaurant was good and included drinks. We had a nice view of the river walk out our window. Nice walk to shopping or catch rio taxi at hotel to other sites was easy. It was winter so pool was not used but it looked nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"not close enough to market square"
My stay was great clean room friendly staff. Bartender was not up to par.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"must be on the riverwalk"
We wanted an hotel on the Riverwalk and the hotel met our needs. I was apprehensive about an older property but they made our stay enjoyable at a more reasonable rate. The room was clean and adquate. They were experiencing some technolgy issues and the fire alarm went off moving everybody from their rooms. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good location. Friendly staff"
You feel they are doing everything extra to please youGenuine Expedia guest review
The service was great... The staff was amazingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We have stayed there four separate times last year and every time the stay got better and better. All of the staff were friendly and very helpful. The hotel was located within walking distance to most if not all major attractions. Plus there is a Trolly stop right outside the hotel. Very convenient. If you don't mind a longer walk then the hotel is […] located on the riverwalk. Quite beautiful at night time. I will be staying at the El Tropicano everyone I stay in San Antonio Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not a great place."
The location is far away from city attractions. No restaurants close-by. No food in hotel restaurant after 10PM. Porous rooms as noise from adjacent rooms is loud and clear.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Really Good Hotel"

"Good location & hotel for price"
The hotel has a nice restaurant & deli. Location was great for the pricing. Would recommend getting a pool side room. Glass slider opened up to pool on the 2nd floor. The staff was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Super fun hotel theme. Feels like I'm in a movie everytime I stay. Friendly and clean. Nice :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The only thing I liked bout the hotel was the closeness to everything but as far as everything else its not good will I stay there again? Ummm no their employees are rude all.of themGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel, close to restaurants and Riverwalk"
I liked this hotel and the staff was great. It was near good restaurants of all price ranges and right near an entrance to the Riverwalk. I would stay here again, especially at less than $100.00 a night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not what I expected"
This hotel was not near the action of the River walk and my room was outdated and needed some upkeep or remodeling! The lobby was very nice but that is where it ended. I wouldn't returnGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Business Trip to San Antonio"
The Tropicano Hotel was overall great, room was clean and comfy, downstairs bar and grill was great and convenient, prices were good and room service was fantastic. Overall a great choice if you don't mind walking to nearby attractions about half a mile from the Alamo, Riverwalk Mall and restaurants. Neighborhood was OK, construction and road closures […] were a challenge getting around in finding the place. I would stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very disappointed with the hotel. Had a rough night sleeping in the room. The heater & A/C unit was horrible, could not get the right temperature. Plus the rooms were way to small. For the price it was definitely not worth it. Will never stay there again....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Throw back feel. Modern amenities."
Very good. Nice to be on the river walk although far from the heart.Genuine Expedia guest review
wonderful motel would love to stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel may be on the Riverwalk, but VERY far from any attractions. This means you'll either be driving to the main Riverwalk areas or walking for a while. While the staff was generally nice, the hotel itself is a complete DUMP in a deserted, bad part of town. I was thoroughly dissapointed with my stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The breakfast buffet is to expensive and the food isn't that great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The place reminded me of little Havana. It was beautiful. Overall pleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
