Knights Inn - San Marcos

1.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel was very unpleasant. The hotel is off of the highway. Traffic was heard inside the hotel. There was a leaking sink in the room. There was an ant infestation in the bathroom. It took housekeeping 4 hours to clean the room. Housekeeping didn't change the sheets on the bed. Also the hotel manager wouldn't supply me with a receipt after asking several times. The continental breakfast pastries were expired and stale.

It was ok. I would recommend it to my friends is they really need a place to stay over night

This motel is not up to the standards of the Knight's in chain, The so called breakfast was very basic, fruity cereal, milk and some sweet rolls. Paint was peeling on the door of the room, It had the basics, i.e. clean and decent, but still at the one star level.

Average to below average motel, but there were two big events in Austin which meant that the price for this motel was outrageously high. At the price paid it was a terrible value.

Friendly easy check-in. The room was a bit warm and had a slightly stale smell to it so we set the air for 60*, placed a car air freshener near the filter, and left for dinner. An hour later we returned to an comfy ice box, which is how I prefer my room especially when it is 95* outside. The water pressure was fine though the drain was slow. Overall, the hotel was good for the value ($85 on a weekend)

Roaches in bathroom, fridge was dirty, drawers were broken I don't know how this hotel got 2 stars.

Could not get non-smoking room until day before leaving.Terrible ,did not sleep because of smoke.

My friends and I stayed at the Knights Inn and were really disappointed because of the bad conditions of our room. It was so old! We expected something else when some other friends told us good things about it. I would say it's ok for the price but deffinitely you should think it twice...

I was traveling on a budget and price was a big consideration. The continental breakfast was substandard and should not be compared with other hotels' breakfast. It was really only cereal and powdered milk or doughnuts. Fortunately, it is very close to other restaurants so this was not a problem with me. The room was noisy though and I could easily hear people in the adjoining rooms and I-35 is very close to the hotel so it was pretty noisy. All in all, it was a nice hotel and it suited my purpose of giving me a place to sleep.

Hotel was ok for a night sleep but definitely needed some attention. Tv all stations did not come in clear could not watch premium stations such as espn etc . Faucet leaked. Toilet ran. Ac had issues hard to get adjusted to comfort temp would not shut off properly had to turn up too cool if turned down it would kick out cool air than heat. Issues with auto lock on door had to swipe card repeatedly Notice neighbor had same issue. Back up dead boat needing adjusting and chain was basically attached with1 screw door had appeared to have been kicked in or some thing. Contenital Breakfast was not much at all . I think with a little attention and work this could be a much better place . To me it was not worth the price at all/

I chose this hotel because it was in my hometown. I wanted to show my fiance the city were I was born. We checked in. I asked if I was going to be able to see my car from the room. The clerk answered yes. I wasn't able to see my car through the pillar. The trash hadn't been taken out. While sleeping we were awaken by a loud noise. The cold water knob had fallen off when tenant above our room turned on there shower. Plus there was a loud noise from the pipes when the water was turned on. The only thing about the stay that made it worth while was it was conveniently located by most attractions,restraunts, and stores.

This is a very old hotel. So, it has some things that need to be fixed. On the other hand, the room was very cheap and clean. It is located right off of I-35 but the road noise did not bother us on the 2nd floor. Pool was clean but small. If you are looking for a cheap, clean place to sleep, this should do. Just don't expect it to be in perfect condition.

was great the only think was went check in the room was to hot take more them 3 hr to cool off

We used the hotel mainly for sleep as I was doing a local cycling event but the beds were really hard so we didn't get much sleep and the rooms are very small. Also I wanted to get a downstairs room but there were none available with a Queen bed

I will never stay at this hotel agian. We walked into our rooms and they stunk like they hadnt been opened in 10 years. Had to go get air freshner so that we could even stay in the rooms. Also went to take a shower and it took 20 min to get the water to run clear (rusty colored). We asked for extra pillows and they said unless we had special needs, then they wouldnt give them to us. Also we were going to go swimming, but the pool was pretty nasty. Even after they "cleaned" the room, it still stunk.

It was just ok.

Hotel on highway service road and you can hear all the traffic noise in the room. No clock in the room. Carpet looked old and dirty. Bathtub had stains and cracks on the wall tile. TV picture was not clear. Staff not attentive - no greeting, had to wait at counter for several minutes before someone even acknowledged me. Would not stay again.

When I first enter the room it seem nice and clean. After looking around, I notice a papercup lit and straw on the floor near the window. Someone did not bother to clean the floor. The following day, the bed was maded and wet towels replaced, but the lit and straw were still on the floor. For the price, I expected more.

We had evecuated from hurricane Ike and the hotel was very understanding about our late arrival and the night that I checked in there was no place to park because of the overflow of evacuess so the night hotel personal on duty moved his car onto the grass allowing me a place to park by the office. This was a very nice and attentive young man.

Knights Inn was somewhat comfortable. It's located in a very convienent area, close to everything like the outlet mall,restaurants, gas stations etc. It's a good place for a quick night.
