Smoking room

I requested a non smoking room and they said they only had smoking room. I have alleges so I could not stay in the room. We had to drive to San Antino because there was not any rooms in San Marcos. The front desk would not refund my room charges because I booked with O. He said good luck getting a refund from O. has a bad rep on refunding

Good Two Day Stay

Very clean room and everything worked except the frig. The mgr. fixed it the next day. Too few electric outlets to connect my lap top. Too many steps up to the second floor. Continental breakfast was a bit slack so we went to a restaurant for breakfast. A little noisy next to the freeway. Otherwise, good location for business. Otherwise, good stay for the money.

Best steak I ever had was at Logan's down the street. Fast food and good restaurants really close. Best shopping is at Tanger south of town.

Purpose and expectations

Must of the people that visit San Marcos Texas has one of these 2 purposes: a) Visit a person or attend things related with the universite settle there; b) shopping at the oulets... Our purpose was the second one, so we need a clean and confortable hotel, with basic facilities for eating (small fridge and a microwave)... since we were all day long out of the hotel we just sleep and some times had a simple breakfast or dinner that we bougt and heated in the microwave and stored in the fridge. For that purpose the hotel was perfect. We arrive late at night and we get an upstairs room which was a problem for us because we have small kids (strollers) and a lot of shopping (the hotel was full), but we request if by tomorrow a room was abailable on first floor if they can swich us... and they did. The price was very convenient. The pool was clean (sadly the weather was not for pool). The cleaning was allways done on time, and maintainance was acceptable. What are the small things that these hotel has to improve: a) they need badly a car for luggage, specially on the area they are located were shopping is heavy) b) breakfast has very short time of offer c) very limited parking lot,.. but the rest is ok, and it has being my election on 3 of the last 4 times i have being in San Marcos.

Not what I expected

The first night the room they put us in smelled awful of mildew and the carpet was filthy i wouldnt get off the bed without house shoes.(I also put down my own blanket to sleep on ) We were so tired we spent the first night there the next morning when i almost threw up at the smell of our room we asked for a new room which they did move us. The new room was much nicer and smelled fresh so the second night was not bad. The staff was friendly just the room could have been cleaner and they should condem the first bottom floor room we stayed in.

The Cotton Seed Cafe is worth the short drive down 80 to be treated to some of the best carrot cake I have ever had. The BBQ peach glazed pork chops were to die for!!

Flop House for Construction Type People...Need a Bed and Shower

For a newly renovated Hotel it was shakey. Certainly a TWO STAR and that was generous. Office Staff were great...Breakfast so so if that. Towels etc clean and generous. Coffee and fixin's poor.

don't go there

Stayed there for the weekend. The linens were not sanitary on the beds. The parking lot is inadequate. They wouldn't issue a partial refund to us even though we checked out early and leased the room to someone else. ..double dipping???

Traveled here for daughter's soccer game. I was very surprised at the comfort of the room, particularly the bed, which is key since I really only use the hotel for sleep. I was expecting to possibly see a bug, but I didn't - not even outside the room. The only surprise was the sound of a train waking me before 8 a.m. Actually, I heard 4 trains pass before 8 a.m. and I wasn't aware that there were RR tracks by the hotel. But for the price, I would give it another try.

All around the hotel are tons of dining, fast food and restaurant, no matter what direction you travel. The premium outlet and movie theater are just down the highway.
