Nope, no joke. Windows that open are rare enough in US hotels/motels that it's worth a mention. Most hotels/motels are air-conditioned, so they seal the windows.

NO! You do NOT want a 2* in that area--you'll end up with run down rooms and crime.

Many hotels in the US (even the really high end places) don't have windows that open, so it can be an amenity.

In San Antonio, I have had some good experiences with LaQuinta Inns in the area. They might be older BUT they offer free breakfast, internet, local calls, and a helpful staff.

I'd stay away from a motel. Motel 6. Travelodge, super 8.
I've traveled so much, I have found consistency in hotel chains from state to state that I like or dislike. Also depends on the city you are stayingin
