We were attending a formal wedding at Green Gables last Friday night. We didn't want to drive home after the reception so we chose to stay at this Marriott hotel. We did an early check in so we could dress and get to the 4pm wedding. It only took a quick call while enroute to the hotel and a room... More

Room was great and we had a pleasant stay. Front clerk was nice and set us up in a quiet room on the 4th floor without my asking. David who worked in the breakfast area was so amazing! He went out of his way to reassure us stragglers coming in at the end of breakfast time that there'd be more... More

This is a very nice property that is within walking distance of shopping, a lot of great restaurants, a commuter train and a CVS. It is also close to the intersection with a major highway, so it's easy to get in and out of (yet very quiet). I am not sure of the age of the property but it looks... More

Great service, clean hotel, and awesome staff. Of particular note, David, the morning breakfast steward was attentive and over the top helpful. He could be a 5-Star/5-Diamond server. A great Marriott property in San Marcos at a reasonable price for the San Diego area.

The staff during the day were pleasant. Especially the front desk clerk. The evening, not so much. The breakfast was disappointing. They didn't have cut fresh fruit, they only had cheap styrofoam plates and bowls, another guest asked for lemonade, they were out. The eggs were over cooked, the hashbrown patties soggy. This morning, the ice was not working in... More

Wow, this place is spectacular. The rooms are gigantic and designed to give you most all of the comforts of home. One of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed at. Hot breakfast is included, and they give you some microwave popcorn for the room.
