My wife and I stayed at this hotel last Wed thru Saturday. We were very pleased with the stay. The room was clean and large so that my wife's mobility scooter could be in the room and not be an issue. The hotel does not offer a free breakfast but does have a mini kitchen with a full size refrigerator...

Loved the room. Very spacious. Loved the refrigerator, microwave, sink, coffee maker, stove top, and dishes. Loved the temperature control of my room on the 3rd floor. Easy check-in, friendly staff. Checked-in late and left early, so I did not have much time to wander around the hotel. Casually appeared to have a well stocked "convenience store" for snacks and...

We reserved and paid for a room adjacent living room. After checking in and getting to our room we realized the hotel had given us a different room. The hotel stated they were out of the room we had paid for 4 days in advance. All they offered was a cancelation without cancellation fees us!!!! We'll never stay there again....

We had traveled from Michigan down to see my Dad in Kyle,Tx. Because of the distance we had stopped and spent the night at 2 hotels along the way.

Our stay consisted of a 5 night stay with Candlewood Suites in San Marcos, Texas and the rooms and bathrooms were very spacious. It was a bonus to have a full kitchen in our room . It was a dog friendly hotel and no signs of bad dog odors or stains in our carpet. The complimentary coffee every morning by...

Stopped by with the kids on our way from San Antonio to break our drive to Dallas. The hotel seemed new and very clean. The front office staff were pleasant but quite business like. The room was comfortable and the full kitchenette welcome and well kitted out which explained the absence of breakfast. An ok Oasis on the '35.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting San Marcos for a women's conference with my church. We were able to stay at Candlewood Suites and although it was only one night it was a night of comfort and relaxation. There was not a Continental breakfast due to a complete kitchenette in the hotel room. If I was to stay there...

Not the cheapest but great value. The hotel is clean, has big rooms with lots of extras like the mini kitchen. Nice bathroom. Friendly staff . fast wifi . Larger than average swimming pool. Compared to other nearby hotels the room was smelling fresh. One minus point is the lack of breakfast.

Great location in proximity to Texas State University. We were there for graduation, and were able to miss the main crowd coming in off I35. Rooms were clean. i35 is currently under construction.
