Great hotel and staff. All round the stay was, and the staff was always helpful. I didn’t have any problem and would definitely stay here again. I was here during the snowstorm, and the lady at the front desk was accommodating during the storm. I will stay here everyone I come to San Marcos. Thanks again

Stay was nice. Rooms are spacious with good layout overall. Very accessible to highway - which is good in terms of getting where you need to go but road noise is a bit loud.

Friendly staff


February 11, 2021

The hotel was very clean, friendly staff. The beds were extra firm, very uncomfortable. I woke up with aches from how hard it was. I did bring it to the front desk attention. When I stopped to check out the young man asked me if his manager had contacted me to discuss my issue. I told him no and he apologized. He said that he did talk to her about my problem and even suggested a solution. To bad it wasn't handled by the manager.
