Recent guest reviews

There is NO indoor pool here! The online amentities for this hotel state that there is an indoor pool and a racquetball court, but there is not. Other than that, the room was nice and clean and more spacious than I expected. I would recommend.

The hotel room was very clean, came with utensils in the drawers and plates in the cabinet. Also has a full size fridge/freezer. The king studio has a reclining chair which is very comfortable. My only complaint with this place was the price. For $230 after taxes, the breakfast was not free and the TV had maybe 50 channels with no guide. You'd think paying that much you'd get an awesome breakfast and direct tv or something. Instead, what you get is salt and pepper shakers in the cabinet.

The staff at the front desk are always welcoming and friendly. The price is fairly high for the area. Your options of hotels and not motels is limited, though. It is nice that you have a refrigerator and freezer in your room. It's perfect for packing your cooler in the morning when heading out to the Premium Outlet Center. I have stayed at the hotel 3 times and have never been disappointed.

I had to be in San Marcos for 2 weeks for my son to attend a speech camp and found the Candlewood Suites to be outstanding in friendliness and hospitality. My son and I loved spending time at the pool when he wasn't at camp. The business office was really convenient for me to work away from home. They even were cleaning and rewaxing the lobby floors during our stay. I can't say enough good things about how courteous and help everyone was and how clean it was.

Everyone was very great. The hotel staff was helpful on recomending places to eat and check out. The room has a stove, a full refrigerator, microwave, AND dishwasher! Great for extended stay but still get for a weekend stay. The meal pantry up front more than makes up for the lack of breakfast. They also have a lending locker where you can borrow other kitchen appliances and even an XBOX 360 (plus games).

Excellent service, location (San Marcos Outlets) and staff. You have everything you need for a comfortable stay: EVERYTHING!!

THERE ARE TRAINS IN SAN MARCOS and they are not that bad...the hotel even offers an apology and a set of ear plugs on the bed side table. I was concerned by the reviews but found it to be not near as bad as described. This place was a great value for my family of 5. The room was big! My oldest daughter commented on it being bigger than her own apartment! The Staff was great and very helpful. We will definitely book again when we come for the summer.
