Recent South Texas Plains reviews

  • Great BMT Location

    "Robin's Nest is a great place to spend time with your newly minted Airman. Plenty of room and everything you need to let them have some downtime and enjoy the family, with close enough proximity to everything in San Antonio you could ask for, including Lackland at a nice 20 minute drive."

  • Air Force BMT Getaway

    "Where do I begin... Our stay at Robin's Nest II was perfect. We arrived on Christmas Eve for our son's graduation on 12/27/13. We were notified late in training that trainees graduating the week of Christmas would be given Christmas day with their families off base! While this was awesome news, many families already had travel set up not to include this day with their airman. We were lucky to be arriving in time, however, due to our late flight, would be unable to purchase groceries for Christmas day meals for our son and 3 additional airman (and a mother) whose families would not arrive until later! I contacted Robin, sent a Visa cash card and she shopped for my promised items!!! Needless to say, I would later find out that these airmen would have my son read the letter specifying Christmas breakfast and dinner every night for weeks before they went to bed! None of this would have been possible without the help of Robin and the wonderful accommodations. These young men couldn't say enough about how happy they were to have a place to relax and hang out for awhile. If we return to San Antonio, I won't stay anywhere else. We cannot express our gratitude enough. It was an amazing week and we are so thankful that we had a place to spend quality, private time with our son."

  • Great place to stay during San Antonio vacation!

    "My family of 7 stayed here for a week while on vacation. The house is clean and comfortable, and had everything we needed. The location was very conveniently located, close enough to everywhere we wanted to visit, but far enough away from the city to be a quiet and peaceful place to stay! The owner was very friendly and helpful. Our five children also loved this place and are already asking when we can come back. We have already recommended the place to friends, and will definitely come back if we return to San Antonio."
