I stayed at this hotel for a couple days for business. The history of the hotel is nice and its location is really nice if you need to be in the Chandler area (right on the edge of the downtown strip). The accommodations are very nice and the staff is very pleasant. I only have two complaints...well maybe only one... More

We loved the historical aspect of the hotel. Good points about the hotel is the food, bar, pool. The rooms, once in, are decent, but similar to a low quality hotel. Landscaping is pretty bad. Over watering grass, ugly stucco building. That needs to be redone. We will not stay again.

I did not stay at the hotel as a guest, but tried to plan a non profit fundraiser. The representative was nice and polite at first. I told her our expectations for pricing and when I told her she went to the website of our prior caterer. She emailed me back and even said she did that and the pricing... More

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to speak with you regarding the non-profit event you are planning.

The San Marcos is a different place to stay. The rooms are comfortable (albeit a bit dated), and the grounds and pool areas quite pretty. It's nice to stay somewhere a bit different than the mainstream chains. It's very quiet in the off season.

This at one time was an awesome Resort experience. That was probably in the 1920's and 30's. The toilets had a ring, the rooms looked dated, not classic. Of course everywhere kept commenting on how it was built in 1912, maybe to justify the unkept look. I did get the room at a bargain price, so did everyone else, evidently.... More

This is a great place to stay and celebrate. If you are a golfer there is a great golf course one of the original in Arizona. Lots of places to eat close by. Good entertainment. You can get anything you want or desire.

Nice place to stay, staff is nice and polite. Lots of history in this landmark, remodeled original rooms on second floor to administrative offices and meeting rooms. Very close to good restaurants and bars. I didn't have any issues during my stay. I would definitely stay here again.

After reading some of the other reviews, I was a bit concerned about choosing this hotel - but I was glad that I did! It is a large property arranged in a series of courtyards.
