I Want to Be a Cowboy Sweatheart: My Trip to San Antonio

Last week, I took a trip to the Lone Star State. I was able to visit some of our great properties in San Antonio and hang out with the front desk guest service representative and talk to some of our awesome guests. It was my first time visiting Texas and the weather was absolutely great especially living in snowy Ohio.

I stayed at the Red Roof Inn San Antonio Downtown River Walk property. It was in a great location and it took me less than 5 minutes to walk to the River Walk. I walked down there a few nights for dinner and to just walk in to see the sights. There is a mall right by the River Walk with a ton of national stores as well as some local tourist souvenirs. Once you walk out of the mall the River Walk begins. There are so many different kinds of restaurants anything from Mexican, Irish Pub, TexMex, barbeque and so many more. There are also very peaceful areas to walk around the river. I ate a Mexican restaurant and they had a mariachi band that played music along the river.

If you know me you know I spent time in that store with the large red Mickey Mouse ears!

I went up and looked at the Alamo which is just at the start of the river. Across from the Alamo there are tons of tourist attractions like Guinness Book of World Records Museum and Ripley’s Believe it or not.

They also had these pretty horse drawn carriages that you could pay to go around the square.

On my last night in San Antonio I stayed at our Airport location which was great since I had an early flight out and I was able to sleep in till 4:20am. Hahah! The Red Roof Inn San Antonio Airport location is about 5 miles from the North Star Mall. I went there for dinner and got some cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory for dessert. The North Star Mall has these huge pair of cowboy boots outside of the mall! They are even bigger than the trees around the area!

I had a great experience in San Antonio and it was a fun first visit to Texas. I can’t wait to visit again soon and hopefully it will be a little warmer and I can get a tan! Unfortunately, I didn’t find a Cowboy or acquire a southern accent which were my ultimate goals. Hahah! Thank you to Bryan, Darlene, Linda, Roger, Maribel, Jessica, and Alex for being so nice during my visit! See y’all next time!- Sarah
