We recently stayed at the Residence Inn San Marcos 8/18- 8/21. The hotel is in a great location, right off the highway and easy to find. Plenty of parking available. Check in was fast and the nice lady at check in told us we had been upgraded from a studio suite to a one bedroom suite with king bed. She... More

Our recent 3 day visit to San Marcos was exceptional in every way - awesome weather, great restaurants and breweries, and clean roads and highways that were not the least bit congested. Our stay at the Marriott Residence Inn was a highlight too. Staff was great, amenities (morning buffet, evening "social" hour) were superb, and the rooms were always in... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights for my cousin's wedding in April 2013. It was good, clean and convenient. No complaints. The average Marriott hotel. I was't able to try out the breakfast, so I can't really judge it. Regardless of all the wedding guests, it was still pretty quiet which was great.

Great customer service. Especially with brittany t. She was great. Me and some friends had a really good time there. The service was great and we had no issue at all when it came down to calling front desk.

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

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
