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 my first choice of hotel in Chandler. In spite of that, I'm giving the an average score after much thought because of 2 items that would likely be a problem for anyone other than me and my husband. If the hotel improves upon these 2 things, absolutely a Very Good. Issues I know would really bother some people:... 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.

I could actually give this 3.5 I guess. The location is great if you are staying at the hotel for a meeting.

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. Those courtyards have vegetation and birds - which can create some dirt. Howver it was a lovely hotel, my room was great and they even... More

The Crowne Plaza, San Marcos, in Chandler AZ is a hotel used by my colleagues for years. The general feeling is of a hotel in decline. I stayed here 10 years ago (more or less 2004) and again in April 2014. It's big, has most facilities you would want, and friendly. But many parts are shabby, a little dirty, and... More
