Reviewed 22 March 2012

Really clean and spacious room, quiet all night. Kids swam in the pool, was clean with extra towels. Really surprised at the low rate. Would definitely stay here again.

Rooms were clean. The staff had their hands full since the computer was down so they were checking people in "old school". Breakfast was adequate...eggs were cold but okay. Nice furnished and convenient location.

My husband and I stayed here while in town for a wedding. The hotel is clean, very nicely decorated and the room was nicely laid out. The breakfast was awesome! Sausage, bacon, oatmeal, eggs, cereals, waffles....

I'd definitely stay here again!

I am impressed this hotel got as high reviews as it did. My experience here was less than satisfactory.

We pricelined and ended up getting this hotel for around $60. The beds were comfortable for the most part and the pillows were not bad. It was clean. Its very close to the outlet mall.

That's about the only good points I found.

Now on to the bad points. The walls were paper thin. We were on the 3rd floor in room 326. I heard EVERY single door slamming all night long on what it felt like the entire floor. I also heard all the traffic and all the train horns all night long.

Also, supposedly the breakfast was being served from 6:30 - 9:30 which was a complete sham. I got downstairs at 9:00 for the breakfast. There were no eggs, and no potatos. Being vegetarian, i was not able to eat the sausage, which is the only thing they had other than the old cereal and other breakfast pastries, etc. After waiting about 20 minutes, the lady in charge of the kitchen (who was busier training another girl) came out wiht some eggs. Oh yeah, no where to put the eggs as there were no plates!!!! The whole experience was very frustrating. Finally out of sheer annoyance (I wasn't the only one clearly annoyed) I went up to that lady and asked her if they ran out of food or what, and she rudely said, "No, I just finished making another batch of potatoes, do you want some?" NO THANKS!!!

Anyway, if I ever go back to San Marcos, I am either going to pay thrice the price and stay at Embassy Suites, OR - pay the same ammount and stay at a Motel 6 or something else, because I will definitely get better service anywhere but here!!!!
