Good value for the money

We were quite pleased with the hotel. It's a bit hard to get to since it's on the freeway access road and therefore only accessible from the north. Area is somewhat run-down, but the hotel is not. Nice clean rooms. Hotel was quiet and comfortable. Surprisingly good breakfast, with scrambled eggs and sausage, make-your-own waffles, as well as the standard continental breakfast fare. It's close to what used to be Aquarena Springs, Spring Lake, and a lot of local parks--but then nothing is very far from anything in San Marcos. Small but clean pool, no hot tub. Staff was great, couldn't have been more helpful. I would stay there again if I'm ever back in San Marcos.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

While in San Marcos, make time to visit Spring Lake and the parks along the San Marcos River. It is clear, 72-degrees, spring-fed water, and there are many places where you can swim for free (Spring Lake is not one of them). Glass-bottom boats on Spring Lake don't take much time or money, but provide a lot of interesting information about the lake and the area. There's also a free aquarium and nature walk nearby.
