I recently stayed here with a family of four - 2 adults and 2 teens. We arrived at the hotel at about 4:15 pm and our room was not yet ready. We had spent the day at the Safari park and had a party to get cleaned up for and so we were fretting a bit - the rooms are... More

Let me first start off by saying this is not my first rodeo in hotels as I have stayed at my fair share around the country - 5 stars, 4 stars, Resorts, etc. I don't know if I have ever left a hotel feeling like I "want" to stay in touch with the people who made being away from home... More

Broken water main and the staff handled it well. Work was completed overnight. I received an ADA room that was a bit disappointing. The staff was courteous and attentive. The room was satisfactory plus. Its probably the best choice in San Marcos. Well located to highways.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights while we were in town for a wedding. Great location to restaurants, bars and shopping. The staff was incredibly friendly, the breakfast both mornings was delicious and the fitness room was great. I wish we would have had more time to use the pool and outdoor fire pit as it would...

Being a Marriott fan and timeshare owner, the Residence Inn was the logical choice for a recent week-long business trip. The room was great for working and relaxing, but the staff was the standout feature. From the kitchen staff at the complimentary and substantial breakfast and evening snack, to the front desk, each person seemed to love their work and... More

We stayed here for one night after a wedding nearby a couple weeks ago. This was our first time staying at a Residence Inn, and we were very pleasantly surprised. The customer service from every employee I interacted with was textbook. I could not find one thing wrong with our room which does not happen often. You can tell they've... More

We got married in San Marcos, and we worked with the Residence Inn for our Wedding Block for our many out of town guests. They were totally on top of it, they gave us a tour, they set up a website for us, and they were able to answer any questions we had. The experience was so easy especially compared... More
