When we decided to visit the hottest, coolest place in Texas aka Schlitterbahn we needed a place to stay that was not too far from the water park or the air force base. I wanted to get our tickets from the ITT office on Randolph Air Force base, get to the water park early and stay somewhere with a military rate, so that is how we ended up staying at TownePlace Suites Seguin. I know it’s a little random. Oh, and we had my mom’s dog with us so the hotel needed to be pet friendly too. TownePlace Suites is pet-friendly. Each of these things factored into why I selected this hotel:
- Pet friendly
- Military rates
- Location – close to base & water park
- Free wifi
- Free breakfast
- Swimming pool
It also didn’t hurt that each of the rooms has a kitchenette. I was already dropping some money to take my family to the water park, so at least I could save some money by eating in our room! Our first night in San Antonio we went to Mi Tierra and had lots of leftovers, so the second night we reheated them. Mi Tierra is a famous Mexican food restaurant in downtown San Antonio. It was probably around a 30 minute drive from the hotel to downtown San Antonio. It’s always a long wait to eat there, but it’s worth it.
Also nearby are the San Marcos Premium Outlets.
