Great location to stay if you are visiting downtown San Antonio River walk. It is within 2 mile distance, a short Uber ride anywhere in town including Fort Sam Houston. San Antonio is one of the oldest cities in the U.S, with no doubt very beautiful. A lot of the neighborhoods surrounding downtown just like any city, are not fully developed. This area is safe, up and coming. If you are looking into staying a more modern/new area, this might not be what your are looking for.
