Night staff is amazing, checking into the Hotel was for attentive and informative. Breakfast on-site is hot buffet no cost for that, which is a plus. Rooms are very clean and spacious, liked that we had an ice-maker in the freezer so it makes it easy to obtain ice. Overall housekeeping staff is friendly, Brittany & Viri who have helped... More

I spent two weeks staying at this hotel and Brittany as well as the other staff made this trip so enjoyable. I recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the San Marcos area. Hands down the best service you will receive.

between a highway and some commerciaml area, this is a typical low class business hotel. My company had booked me there and I hope it is the last time. Rooms are clean, wifi is good but the place has no soul. On the top, the aircon is very very noisy

This residence in is newer, modern, and very sleek, clean. Free parking, great neighborhood, but it is north of SD. Nearby golf courses is why we stayed. Free breakfast is completely awesome. Staff very friendly, rooms clean, new.

The Marriott Residence Inn San Marcos is such a beautiful place to stay. I had to be out of my home for a few months, and I have a beautiful dog that had to come with me, so the Residence Inn was my first choice. They welcomed both of us, and took such amazing care of us for almost four... More

I usually stay at a Hampton or Holiday Inn. This definitely a step up from those. I stayed there due to my company paid for the hotel.

I recently stayed here on a business trip. My room was very spacious, clean and updated. There was a full kitchen, fireplace and living room. It felt like I was in a one bedroom apartment. The complimentary breakfast had plenty of choices. I would recommend this hotel if you are staying in this area.
