      Not the cleanest place but a great place to relax and meet people.

      This place is tough to review. On the one hand it is a dive. Summer heat makes the place almost unbearable with the general lack of A/C. The shower and steam room area smell like they havne’t been cleaned since before Anderson Cooper was a silver fox. Oddly enogught the back bathroom has appeared to be clean each time I’ve visited this place. Pro’s - Usually at least a few hot and well hung guys. Wide mix of different ethnicities and ages. Hot military guys find their way in here from time to time making it interesting. Plenty of open play space make it unnecessary to rent a room. They have a public sling room and a room with a slurp ramp. Con’s - The place is filthy and in disrepair. Too much “bunk room” space - a maze area with glory holes would be a welcome replacement for some of the shabby old beds. Old trolls can be pushy and might need a gentle push to convince them “no men’s NO”. Prices seem high for the condition of the club and lack of amenities (no pool, no hot tub), and lack of A/C. But with no other bathhouse in San Antonio, and not even competition in Austin, their monopoly allows them to charge more than they should. No specialty rooms - no private video rooms, no private sling or fuck bench room. Staff can be crabby and play crappy music, killing the mood. Some comments online argue “this isn’t a bathhouse” but the first thing they tell you when you ‘join’ is the rules inclining no water sports, no scat, and no means no. I’ve honetstly had fun here since moving to San Antonio and it beats not having any place like this. But if you moved this club to almost any other major city it wouldn’t be able to compete.

      Lots of fun but kinda unkempt slightly.
      ACI is a favorite place of mine, mostly because it is the only place to go. XD It is a bit dingy and unkempt but it is still a place to go. While it is almost always filled with old men. Sometimes there is an occasional hot dude or young guy which is always fun. :P

      Hot Men including white, latin, black, military. Few twinks.
      Much better than Austin. But Houston and Dallas still reign supreme.

      It's not even a bath house anymore. The steam room is closed indefinitely. The place is creepy and dirty and so are the majority of men who go here. Last time I went (and it will be the last time), someone peed on the floor and I stepped in it. If you want to go to a bath house, you got Austin right up the road and while Austin's bath house is not spectacular by any means, it beats this place by far.

      New to it all
      Walked in, and very dark but u can see your way around, I didn't even finish taking off my clothes to put in the locker before I was getting hit on. Guys walk around in boxers or the towel. I've watched gay porn before so I was curious and just went to check it out. Just walking around, guys were telling me to go to this room and everything so I finally said yes and damn he was big. First time and I loved it. Maybe next time I'll go back and go in the spa or shower. Just give it a try!

      This place was pretty chill, I went around 5 in the morning on a Tuesday and there was a total of about 8 guys in the whole place.. went to the steam room first but it was sooo hot I couldn't breath so I just we to shower right next to the spa...was only by myself for about a minute until a young Hispanic guy joined me.. after small talk, about a three questions we were soaping eachother. I was about to tell him I only play safe, and then to my convenience then was a roll of four condoms left on the floor, so I slipped on and slipped in:)then this guys friend comes in and says "oh wow, just let me know when your done", with a smile on his face.. but he ended up just standing there and watching me.

      Great place. Very clean, friendly people. Don't like having to leave a copy of driver's license. Otherwise nice club. Will go back every time I visit S.A. Some really nice cocks there.

      ACI is still under reconstruction but due to the amount of members asking to have them reopen, according to what I have been told, they are partially open. They are open evenings only during the week from 7pm til 7am and open all weekend. Majority of club is still closed due to fire damage but still has open areas.

      ACi closed: Probably For Good
      Here in Austin, we heard some interesting news about San Antonio's ACi. It seems that there was a fire on May 3, 2014. Apparently, the fire was caused by a patron smoking crack or something....literally "burning" himself in the process and causing a fire at ACi. The City of S.A. will no doubt insist on stringent code requirements, which means that ACi is history. I used to drive to SA just to go to ACi. Perhaps this means that some San Antonian's will make the trek to Austin to go to Midtowne Spa.
