Reviewed yesterday NEW

New carpets and new bedding would have made a world of difference. Basic remodel items which are needed all the time and certainly a neccessity in the hotel industry. Not only is the carpet very very dated from years years ago but the stains have never been addressed obviously. There was even gum buried into the carpet which was disgusting...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 February 2017 via mobile

I had to be in San Marcos for an event with the university and the department secretary suggested I let her make the hotel reservation. This was the hotel she chose and it was outstanding. I have stayed in several hotels in San Marcos and this was by far the best. I highly recommend it and will definitely stay here...

Not very pleased with our selection of this hotel. Our room smelled of musty odors and the AC unit was a bit loud. Woke the next morning for the "included" breakfast only to find out that they were out of things. They told us "the truck will be here Wednesday" (it was Monday). Next time we will spend a little...

The price is too high for what you get. The rooms, the hotel itself is not all that and the price is too high. For the rate per night you expect more and can easily get a better hotel for that price. Do not recommend at all.

Bring your own pillows!!! These here are awful! The place is nice and had a great breakfast and very friendly staff. I felt for the price I've stayed at nicer places for less money. Our toilet was wobbly and there was a giant pink (pepto bismol?) stain on the carpet which was gross! The air doesn't work well in the...
