What You'll Get
Cowboys invented the handlebar mustache so they'd always have somewhere to hang their hat. Save yourself the grooming time and hang your Stetson at the stately Hill Country Inn & Suites at Salado Creek Villas. For $39, you get a one-night stay in a standard suite with two queen-sized beds and all the benefits of its family-friendly amenities, a $76 to $119 value. Call ahead to make your reservation, subject to availability.
This seven-acre resort lies just off Interstate 410, a few miles east of the airport, conveniently near everything San Antonio offers yet with enough groomed green land and ranch-style architecture to feel farther outside of town than it actually is. Your suite comfortably sleeps four in two queen-sized beds. You'll get your own porch replete with just the right patio furniture for putting up your boots, along with a modest living-room area, microwave, mini-fridge, and disco ball. Two hot tubs nestle into the gardens, accompanied by a playground, swimming pool, barbecue grills, and picnic tables. Country Inn & Suites offers a complimentary continental breakfast; hotel staff is on call 24 hours a day; and guest laundry is always available to handle any barbecue sauce–related stain disasters. Every Tuesday and Thursday there's a complimentary happy hour with adult juice boxes in bottles for the adults.
This deal humbly makes its case as a close, easy weekend reprieve from the norm without the hassle of long-distance travel or careful planning. Moreover, since this Groupon is good for five months, you can buy now and safely sequester any visiting relatives before they ask to have your bed to sleep in, spill crumbs on, or jump upon until the springs explode.
