El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel, San Antonio
This is the worst hotel experience that I have ever had. I travel during the week for work and stay in hotels pretty much Monday-Friday. Let’s start with the first room I was given. Tub was broken, already used hand soap and the AC was also broken. I called and asked for them to give me a new room and was told that maintenance was coming up. Upon arrival, he also agreed that I needed a new room. The next day, around 3pm I get a knock on the door. It’s the front desk guy, he asked me what I was doing in that room and if I was planning on staying in there. He pretty much accused me of squatting. As you can imagine, I was furious. Finally at checkout the next day, I was informed that I needed to pay the $50 parking. Normally I wouldn’t care about that but on this particular occasion I was beyond annoyed because when I checked in, the front desk person gave me a parking pass and told me that parking was free. This hotel is disgusting, not worth a single penny of the price, the workers lie to their guests and exhibit some of the worst service that I have ever seen. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

Very Good8.0
A fun hotel.
My room was spacious and comfortable. The desk clerks were caring. I had to store a box in their refrigerator and they were wonderful about taking care of it. I had to get to the Greyhound station and I was offered to have an employee carry the box for the 3 blocks. The only complaint was that the room was a little dusty with white powder all the tops. Great pool. Close to the Riverwalk.

Very disappointed!
If i had no other choice we would stay there, We were very disappointed! There was a kitchen but no paper towels, ice machine was broke, when you take a shower water goes all over the floor cause there’s no lip to catch the overspray. The cleanliness was awesome. The hotel was a blast from the past but they really need to upgrade. We were hoping we’d be close enough to walk everywhere but we had to drive everywhere

Staff was pleasant and helpful. Installations are very old and not maintained.

Very bad. You can hear when somebody’s walking, running, and cannot sleep at all. Lady from the food store was really rude., ordered and had to wait more than 30 mins for our food even though I gave her a tip, she wanted to give me some fries that were there standing for 20 mins. No good!!
