Overall, my stay met my most basic needs. The room was clean, check-in and check-out was easy, staff was nice, they offered complimentary breakfast, ect. Although, every time we entered the room, it felt gross and muggy and took forever to cool off. I understand that Texas is hot this time of year, but I am from the gulf coast...

We have stayed at this BW a couple of times. It is close to the Tanger Outlets, the river, lots of restaurants, and local attractions. If you are a bookworm, check out the Half Price Books just across the highway (it's big!). We visited Palmetto State Park for a day of hiking before heading to the hotel, and the drive...

Great hotel for easy access to Texas State University. I was there for my son's orientation. Hotel staff was great, check-in was easy. Room was nice and clean. Bed was very comfortable. This is a hotel that I will book next time I'm in San Marcos.

My friends and I went on a road trip the Fourth of July week. We went from place to place. This was our least favorite place that we stayed. It was clean and safe, but nothing special. The breakfast was average and there was no hot tub. It also had a weird smell throughout the hotel.

The stay was excellent, except for having to walk from the lobby to the opposited end of the building to get to my handicap room. I need surgery and can barely wallk. One woulld think the handicap rooms would be closser to the lobby since you cannot enter frough the door at the end of the hall.

The staff was terrific! The room was large (we had 2 beds) and we had plenty of room to spread out. The room was clean and comfortable. It is close to the outlet malls and the university. There was breakfast daily and while we only grabbed muffins, it seemed to be a hit with the folks eating.

My daughter and I stayed here while my granddaughter went to orientation at the college. We did some site seeing in the area. We went to Wimberley and Gruene while we were there and really enjoyed both places. There was lots to see and do there and some good places to eat. We had a great time.

I stayed at this hotel about 3 years ago and I was rather unhappy. But this time around, my stay was much more pleasant! To start with, the entire place received a huge facelift. The lobby felt fresh, with new decor and clean. Our room was also newly decorated, new AC system and had a huge flat screen TV. Breakfast...

The location of this Best Western was convenient to Texas State University and good places to eat. The air conditioning was not cool enough. Our room was on the second floor & there is not an elevator in the building. We are older & it was a struggle to get our bags up the stairs. The room was clean. Free...
