I am staying at this Hotel for the 5th time in around 15 months and every time just got better and all the staff here is caring as ever as they did in the first time. Whenever I visit San Marcos, i do not even evaluate other Hotels and it has become my default Choice.

Made a last minute reservation for my son and myself to stay overnight for a lax tournament in the area. Front desk clerk was super helpful as there was a problem with my reservation and very friendly. She made a late night check in that could have been horrific into a comedy of near epic proportions. Okay, the hotel. First...

The hotel was perfect for our stay. I will stay there again. I wish I had known about it before. Our son attends Texas State University, and the hotel was clean, accommodating, and centrally located, with a great price.

Our toilet over flowed for no reason at 4am!! It flooded so bad it got the carpet wet! They had to move us to a new room that was a smoking room! It smelt awful! Keep in mind this was all at 4am! The staff had attitude too! The only nice guy was the one who darted up to our...

Nice, clean motel with indoor entrances to rooms. We stayed on the 1st floor on the side away from I-35 so it was pretty quiet. There is no elevator to the 2nd floor so ask for a 1st floor room if suitcases are heavy or mobility is an issue. Misty worked very hard to provide us with a great breakfast....

It is surprising how busy this place is. Arrived at check-in time and had to wait behind large group. Front desk staff was very efficient assigning rooms and only had to wait 10 minutes. Desk clerk did recognize I was a Best Western Diamond rewards member and asked if I had a room preference for first or second floor. I...

There are bugs all over this place. Television does not work. There were stains on 2 out of the 4 pillows. My room was very freshly painted, didn't take long to get a headache from the fumes. I found a long hair in a towel.
