Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Engineer Rob A great value
I was on business travel and picked this hotel for its location, services and price. The rates when I was there were better than I expected and lower than other places in the area. The room was large and the layout efficient.
There was a large desk with good lighting and power outlets for my laptop, phone chargers and other items. There were outlets at the bedside desk lamps as well.
The room was quiet and I never noticed sounds from outside either.
The grounds were nicely decorated with a park-like atmosphere. Very inviting to sit outside in the evenings.
The restaurant and bar area were attractive as well. The food was good, reasonably priced and the menu showed a nice variety. We ate at the bar a few nights and could order off their menu as well as the full restaurant menu. The bar had a great selection of beverages too.
This place will be my first choice when travel brings me back to the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Roykin Friendly Hotel
I have been visiting Phoenix for over 10 years now and always make a point of staying at the San Marcos. The staff are always friendly and accommodating. The hotel itself is very peaceful and great to relax in after a hard day's work. Rooms are comfortable and the pool is great. The surrounding shops and bars are very good also.
A disappointment is that the bar has now been moved to the lobby and away from the pool area which makes it a lot less personal and inconvenient if using the pool ( had many a pleasurable time in the old bar)
A word of advice to the owners from my experience of the hotel, the hotel was built in 1912 and has a lot of history, having been visited by many celebrities in the past, It has a small theatre and a speak easy from the 30s, haunted rooms etc. I don't not understand why they do not utilise this in a themed way to attract more business.

Nice room with balcony close to dining. I plan on staying there again when it isn't so hot so I can enjoy the golf course.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Myrnab1 Comfortable bed, spacious room and excellent service
I recently stayed at the Crowne Plaza San Marcos Golf Resort for a Class Reunion. The staff could not have been more helpful and gracious. They met every need with beautiful smiles. Every time I requested assistance they were quick to come to my aid. The food at each meal was delicious. We had catered lunch, a dinner buffet and went to the normal Sunday buffet, which was the best I've had anywhere. I've already made plans to go back for that breakfast buffet. It was amazing. I would highly recommend this resort for a conference, reunion, wedding or other major event. The staff could not have been more accommodating to us.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mhl13 Poor Experience - San Marcos
This facility appears nice from the road however the experience we had was less than expected. Kids running in the walkways and guest arguing prevented us from sleeping, staff failed to respond.
The second night appeared to start the same so we checked out at 10PM and left. Staff suggested we contact manager after we told why we were checking out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sitka1 Great Customer Service
Being from Alaska, and visiting the great Phoenix area in late July - the humid temperatures were challenging for me. Howeve, the people - the great customer service, made my stay very enjoyable. From the check in experience with a smile and great attitudes, to the lobby staff to the food and beverage staff to the housekeeping staff - they went above and beyond with their excellent customer service.

Overall, hotel property was nice and staff was very courteous. Biggest compliant is with the cleaning staff. They seem to just do the bare minimum. During my stay it was common to see trays of food from a guest's room service after breakfast still sitting there in the Arizona heat in the early evening (all hallways are exterior not interior). My shower stall had clumps of hair from a previous guest clinging to the walls and I'm not talking about a strand or two but large clumps.

We really enjoy the old town Chandler area. It was fun to stay at the San Marcos and walk to the great brew pubs and bars nearby. Our executive suite was so comfortable. The historic San Marcos is lovely place to relax. Simple pool and huge hot tub that was open until midnight! Great in room dining, speedy and delicious! I wanted to stay another night!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Slime Could benefit from better training of staff.
After checking into our room, we turned the AC down to cool the room and left for a dinner appointment. When we returned three hours later, the room was the same temperature (85"). Maintenance staff was responsive and we were relocated to a room with operating AC. The next morning we ordered a pot of coffee delivered to the room and that is all we got. No sugar, cream or coffee cups. Staff was very responsive in delivering cream, sugar and cups. That night when we went to bed and it felt like someone had short-sheeted the bed. The fitted bottom sheet did not fit the king bed. Staff was very responsive in bringing up a sheet of the correct size.
Most, if not all these issues could be avoided by proper training of staff. Housekeeping staff should know when an AC unit is not cooling a room and report it to maintenance. Room service staff should be trained on what is included when they deliver coffee to a room. Housekeeping staff should be trained on making sure beds are properly made.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tamara64 Excellent Customer Service but Poor Hotel Quality
The customer service provided at this hotel was excellent with the exception of one of the dining room staff. The young man that took care of my room service was wonderful. The bathroom is in terrible need of updating!!! The tub did not drain properly at all. There were dead creatures under the bathroom counter. A bit unnerving. I also had to request an iron which was a bit annoying but was taken care of immediately.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shallows Perfect Staycation !!
affordably and competively priced hotel as compared to the places in phoenix and scottsdale. hotel had a great mix of modern amenities (nice beds, sheets, decor, bathrooms, TV's, clock) with grounds that were relaxed, spacious and harkened to a more relaxed spacious time. Pool, jacuzzi and deck was very large with dozens of lounge chairs and several umbrella covered tables and chairs. Very easy to find a quiet private spot at pool area. Salt pools were suprisingly warm in the middle of the summer and jacuzzi was not much warmer than pool which was suprising. Main lobby had class. Cool old car on display, piano in the lounge, flavored water and several today's newspapers available. The grounds were messy from monson that blew through and took 12-18 hours to be cleaned. Some room service dishes were left in hallways for several hours. Overall My wife was pleased. She'd like to return the San Marcos perhaps on our next Staycation. Sam

Can't recall staying at a worse resort ever! Had to change rooms twice just to get a working shower...all drains were filthy. Felt very sorry for a competent staff who started with an apology, then were nearly in tears.

My family and i stayed overnight. It was a pleasant stay with most of our time being spent by the pool. The pool had alot of plant and foilage that was landing in the pool. Perhaps routine skimming of the pool woulf be helpful.

I can't say enough good about my stay at San Marcos! From the time I booked my reservation until I checked out...I had the best experience!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jo$h old, comfortable, worm in the room
We went for a staycation. I booked just for my wife and I to sleep, relax, and eat out without kids.
I would say it is clinging to the "resort" title as the exterior stucco was outdated, there were popcorn ceilings in the room, but the furniture was nice. The TV was SD with only one movie channel. The pool was nice because we were the only ones there and we could relax. The first morning there my wife was getting ready for the day when she stepped on a large grub crawling on the ground. Don't know where it came from but we delivered it to the front desk without anything done to apologize other than "I'm sorry."
I would say if I paid less it may have been worth it but will likely look elsewhere the next time...(unless it's free)
Downtown Chandler is great and the hotel is right there to enjoy the restaurants which is the best the hotel has to offer.
