It was all right for a one night stay. It is convenient being next to the freeway. But how do you ignore and not fix or repair the little things that need repaired like holes in the wall? I hate when management make up excuses when they respond to your negative review. You know you have these problems and too...

Stayed here one night while moving our daughter to college. It needs a lot of attention. The room is very dirty, carpets feel dirty under your feet. I don't think housekeeping ever looks behind the bathroom door since there is a lot of mold and dirt. Water knob in the tub has mold under it that you can see. The...

My husband and I stayed the night here and found it quite clean and comfortable. The front desk clerks were friendly, the room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. For the price, we were very satisfied.

Only about the sign outside is new here. Stained furniture terrible room lights. And so expensive. I asked for a pair of towels and was told to come to the front desk to get them!!! A first for me So many better options out there. Until they demolish this avoid it at all next trip.

The room was surprisingly spacious and clean-ish. The floor had been vacuumed but only in the main pathways of the room. I discovered the blow dryer in the bathroom did NOT work AFTER I got out of the shower with wet hair! However, I was pleased that the front desk produced a working blow dryer literally within just a minute...

I use this Hotel every time I come to San Marcos. The staff is very friendly and I have never had any problems. It is a very convenient location and the rooms are comfortable. Good value! It does have an outdoor pool. Rooms come with a microwave and small fridge. There are many fast food places and grocery stores nearby....

I like Red Roof Inns. They are a very cheap brand, but what they promised, the deliver and I like that. The property is not brilliant, but it's comfortable. The staff is very courteous, the wifi works and it is very well located. Breakfast is VERY basic, but again, you can't expect much for what you pay to stay here....

This hotel was disgusting. There were marks on the walls and ceiling, and the room was not clean at all. Toenail clippings on the floor, there was trash from a previous guest in the trash can, and the bathroom had trash from a previous guest on the floor. WiFi didn't work, and the AC workes, but not very well.

The hotel is right off the freeway. There's lots of restaurants and stores nearby. The lobby was clean. Front desk staff was nice. There's no elevator so if you're upstairs you're taking the stairs. Not a lot of parking. The rooms were nice and clean. Plenty of channels on the tv. Room.also had a microwave and fridge.
