DO NOT believe the pictures they have on this site? All lies, very misleading to customers because Most customers use those pictures to decide if they want to book a hotel or not. I refused to stay here because it was horrible and nasty. The building is falling apart and in serious need of repairs. The pool is so small the only thing you can do is stick your feet in. I don't know when the last time this has been inspected. They would not refund my money and they had to nerve to charge a $100 to sleep in this dump I would spend 2 cents to stay here. They need that $100 more than me. If they are registered with the BBB I will be contacting them about how this hotel is misrepresenting themselves with outdated pictures. Also, I will be contacting Wyndham since I am a Wyndham owner and let them know who this place is very misleading to their customers and customers are not able to make the best decision based on pictures that are accurate. I would not recommend this place to anyone. No, I'm not a disgruntled customer. I just know that this place is not fitting for customers to stay even if you are on a budget. This place needs to be close down. Next time, I will secure my reservations so I can cancel if I need too.

The young man at reception is accommodating and nice but the room needs a total remodeling.Not all light fixtures are working.The bed has 3 small pillows,looks like the bedding has not been changed.Not a restful stay.The breakfast is stingy.No milk for the cereal.As early as 8:30 no pancakes.

According to the room rate, I was expecting more comforts. If you don't care the price, you should stay on another location.

It was okay clean and comfortable for a one night stay

Was OK - for the money - nice staff - could have been a little cleaner - - had a microwave and ice box -

Had a perfectly acceptable stay at the Howard Johnson San Marcos. They guy on the desk was friendly and efficient, the room was spacious and had what I needed; it was clean, reasonably comfortable, the shower worked, the TV worked etc. Sure, it was a bit tired - the microwave looked like something from the 1970s - but for the price point, I think it was a good deal.

Arrived Saturday afternoon, greeted promptly at front desk, check in a breeze. Not a fancy hotel, but clean answer comfortable. Definitely would stay again.

Room was clean and comfortable for a reasonable price at the last minute. Not anything posh, but we were pleasedo.

It was a great place to stay. Great breakfast enjoyed the one night.

The cable wss disconnected and the doors did not lock from the inside and had trouble opening thr door.

The surrounding environment looks like abandoned area. Walking from the parking lot to the room, the ground was filthy with trash. The room smells bad... Poor insulations - you can hear any thing from the room next door.

Our stay at Howard Johnson's was just fine. We needed a convenient place to stay, but could not pay very much. The room was big, shower had hot water, beds were comfortable, and tv was available. My only concern was that the parking lot faced the highway.

It was good, great location, room was very comfortable and relaxing,

Once i opened the bed the sheets were dirty and with stains - that shouldnt happen

I spent 2 days in San Marcos with my son who's attending Texas State. It was a little tricky accessing the hotel at first, but once you know the way you're ok. Room is in dire need of updating and a good cleaning. Carpet was pretty bad. Also, the tub didn't drain well and I was in standing water up to my ankles in no time. Bed was comfortable enough. TV reception was fuzzy. The gal at front dest when I checked in was very nice and helpful.

Pool kinda small, but overall not bad for the price.great location if your visiting the college

Very nice room big deds. We only used the room to rest after a long day of shopping.

Except from one person who was helpful and went out of her way to help, the rest of the staff was doing nothing more than the bare mínimum. This hotel offers free breakfast and that lacks attention as well.

Was pleased with the price, just passing through San Marcos. Traffic sounds from I 35 were the only drawback.
