The place is nasty. The bedspreads were filthy, with huge stains. The restroom had bugs on the floor. The beds and pillows should of been replaced years ago. The carpets and furniture were disgusting. Do not stay here.

Easy freeway access, fairly quick check-in, clean room. No frills, just a good place to spend a night or two. It's right off the freeway. New Bedding was nice and clean. I just needed a clean shower and bed. Shower was clean and the bed was comfortable. I slept well and had a nice shower. I got just what I...

Do not stay here. This place was nasty!! Stained carpets and broken furniture. There was trash on the floor and behind the furniture. The AC didn't workat all and when we went to the front desk, the clerk refused to believe us. Go stay anywhere but here while in San Marcos.

I spent there 4 nights. The room was nice and clean. The staff on front desk was very helpful and friendly: they gave me aspirin when I had a headache, every morning they ordered a taxi for me and called another company when I had unpleasant experience with Hays Cab. Overall, I would highly recommended this place for a short...

This served the purpose for us. We were just staying overnight. It was clean and reasonably priced. The continental breakfast wasn't the best I've ever experienced but it was sufficient to keep us from having to pay for breakfast at another establishment Good hotel for the price. Pluckers right next door, gas and other eating places, location is super, Have...

This hotel is okay. No mini coffee maker in the rooms. But the rooms are clean staff very friendly. I would say it's a nice hotel. Check-in was very easy and quick. The hotel staff was amazing.
