Nothing to like
They need to update the rooms . Clean carpet . Pics online are a lie
Old run down ....major updates ans renovations needed. 29 dolls for self parking or valet rediculaus.....wil defently not stay there again. Not even for 1/2 the price
Direct access to the Riverwalk. Comfortable, but small, beds.
Thin walls didn’t allow good rest for either of us. We got in too late to enjoy a nice dinner & the food served from the bar/restaurant was worse than what we would’ve found at a fast food joint. $29 to park overnight is outrageous! We won’t be back.
20 A day for parking
Clerk never told my wife. Got surprised at checkout with $80 bill.
was not able to go because hurricane Harvey. Could not get a refund.
The price was good for the river walk frontage. The valet was extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet was good. It was nice to have a small selection of food at the coffee bar.
The A/C dripped water onto the carpet. One of our room keys didn't work. The parking pass didn't work when we were ready to leave.
El Tropicano Hotel while close to downtown was still removed from the regular commuter traffic. No noisy ambulances or no highly traveled streets to manuever.
No ice machines on our floor.
We were looking forward to using the hotel's pool but it was closed due to construction and the website didn't mention it. The drain in the bath/shower didn't go down fast enough. In the middle of showering I had to turn off the water so the water could drain down the tub.
Staff was super friendly
Aging hotel, due for a refresh. Very limited dining options on hotel. Most customers wear wife beaters and carry cases of beer into hotel.
Pool was closed the entire time
Just okay don't expect anything more
The hotel had a decent pool with a bar and a fire.
The hotel is old and out dated the toilets were not clean. They charge their customers for parking. And it's a steep charge of 21 dollars a night for valet or 16 for self parking. I would not stay in this hotel again it is not a good value for the money. Holiday Inn or even a best value inn would be better
The first night, they gave us a 1 bed when I had booked 2. That was resolved the next day. Thanks to the manager, Alex C., for this change. The lobby was great! Very friendly staff.
The parking situation. Too expensive to self park!
The quaint boutique El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel is amidst a bustling tourist center. The hotel attracts tourists and business travelers alike who prefer charming, small hotels with history and individual character.
El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel is literally across the street from River Walk in downtown San Antonio, where several restaurants and shops await. The historic Arneson River Theater, The Blimpie Rivercenter Mall, Briscoe Western Art Museum, and the Alamo are all about a five-minute walk away. The Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, the Tower of the Americas in Hemisfair Park, and the AT&T Center are all within short distances.
Guest can grab a free newspaper in the lobby and head over the breakfast buffet. On-site Tiki’s Lounge and Expresso’s Café serve casual lunches and dinners. The hotel specializes in catering for wedding receptions and reunions at the upmarket ballroom. The fully equipped Strive Fitness Studio and outdoor swimming pool cater to all needs.
The hotel’s modern rooms offer free WiFi and flat-screen TVs, plus desks, minifridges, and coffeemakers. Upgraded rooms add balconies, microwaves and/or river views, while bright one- bedroom suites feature living rooms with sofa beds. The Club level suites offer access to a rooftop terrace.
The hotel is on the river’s edge but farther away from the River Walk’s main attractions than many San Antonio hotels. Travelers who don’t mind stretching their legs to see the sights will appreciate the good night’s sleep that being away from the action allows.
