Clean, friendly and centrally located in San Marcos Ca. This is a perfect hotel while visiting California State University San Marcos. There is a wide variety of restaurants, entertainment and shopping nearby.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 March 2017

This Hampton Inn was the perfect jumping-off location for our weekend trip to see desert wildflowers in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and Joshua Tree National Park. The hotel is convenient to I-5, I-15 and smaller state highways. Typical of Hampton Inns, it is clean, comfortable and has a friendly, accommodating staff. We really appreciated the list of local restaurants and...

The hotel staff here is excellent, very helpful with recommendations and had prepared a photocopy of a map with recommended restaurants and local businesses. The best restaurants were within walking distance. The hotel was new and clean, everything worked as expected, a convenience store/gas station is right across the street within walking distance as well.

I was able to choose my room ahead of time and the staff was great. They even helped me out when I realized I had forgotten my toothpaste. Check out was a breeze and we were even able to have something to eat before we left. Will stay again if in the area.

I've stayed here both for business and pleasure while in North County. Quick easy access to the 78 and nice location between the coast and Escondido. Also an exit away you can find food and anything else you could possibly need.

Several members of my family stayed at the Hampton this past week end. The staff is very professional and helpful. The Complimentary breakfast wast great, I love the waffles. We were recommended a great restaurant that was nearby. Our family of 11 people had a great meal and were so happy to spend time together.

The Hampton Inn in San Marcos was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The staff we encountered - front desk staff and the breakfast room attendant - were pleasant, polite, and helpful. The WiFi was fairly useless, but that was a minor concern. We enjoyed a pleasant stay.

In town for a family funeral. The hotel is located near the 78 freeway, but we could not hear it from our room that was facing it and the parking lot. We slept peacefully and very comfortably. Bed and linens were great! Breakfast was good, many options. We ate breakfast on the patio next to the pool.

Stayed at this hotel as it was near to Escondido where I was visiting friends. It's convenient to the 78 freeway and yet it is quiet. The room was immaculate, included a fridge and microwave and small coffee maker. The staff are friendly and efficient. Breakfast is included and there is coffee always available in the lobby. They have an...
