SAN ANTONIO - San Antonio police are warning people not to order pizzas from flyers slipped under hotel room doors. 

Officers said hotel guests have been getting their credit card numbers stolen after ordering pizza from the number on those flyers.

Stacy Seaborn, director of sales and marketing at Hotel Valencia on the Riverwalk, said this has been a reoccurring problem for years.

"They'll order food — a lot of times their cards will be charged, and the food will never show up. They're typically restaurants that have one-star Yelp reviews. It's not the best representation of what San Antonio is all about," Seaborn said.

Officers posted what they called a "tip for tourists" on the SAPD Central SAFFE Facebook page.

"If you are staying at one of our many hotels in the downtown area please do not order from any of the restaurant flyers that are slid under your doorways. Always ask the hotel concierge or staff where are the best places to eat in San Antonio to ensure you are getting the best quality food our city has to offer," the post said.
