Great Hill Country Option Away from the Big City Crush

My husband and I were visiting friends in the San Antonio area and were looking for an alternative to the heavily trafficked areas inside the loops of the city. We found it in the Best Western Boerne Inn & Suites. It’s a quiet, clean hotel that’s new and appealing. It’s very convenient to I-10, located on the westbound frontage road, but has surface street access toward the east. It’s convenient to San Antonio (about 30 minutes away) and the rooms are a lower rate. Ours was a nice size and came with a fridge and microwave. There’s a great outdoor pool, very clean, good temperature, and big enough to swim laps in. There’s also a nice fitness room with aerobic exercise equipment and a weight machine. They offer a complimentary standard hot breakfast with good choices and the breakfast room is spacious and sunny. They have a full laundry room (and it’s only $1.00 per load for each washer and dryer), which we took advantage of during our stay.
Our room was on the side fronting I-10 (despite a prior request for the quiet side) and it was noisy at night. Thankfully, the A/C fan helped cover the noise, and we had the option to select “Constant Fan” when we wanted to sleep. The bed was very comfortable and we had good choices for firmness in the pillows.
Boerne itself is a nice town, and a welcome place to decompress after the busy-ness of the big city. The hotel is just a short drive from Main Street, where there are charming shops and many restaurant options. It’s also one mile/one freeway exit from the local HEB, which is a great supermarket chain where you can find just about anything you need.
Kudos to Anna at the front desk who helped us not only with check-in but with dinner recommendations and local directions. She was always friendly and pleasant and seemed genuinely glad to see us whenever we returned to the hotel.
Overall, it was a great stay, and had our room been away from the highway noise, it would have been excellent. The hotel backs up to a residential area, so the rest of the surroundings are very quiet and, indeed, tranquil. We would definitely return here on our next visit to the Alamo City. less
