The hotel is right off highway 78. Also, easy access to grocery shopping and other stores. Rates were resonable. The breakfast was good. A variety of hot and cold items. As well as different types of beverages and fruit.

I have never stayed here before but the staff was very courteous and responsive to our needs. As many of you know hotels in Southern CA can be expensive for what you get. This was a clean, convenient hotel at a reasonable CA price.

Clean, comfortable and convenient for seeing the San Marcos, Escondido area. Beds were a little soft but if you like them that way... Breakfast was more than adequate. Fitness room did not have stationary bikes, only ellipticals. Staff was very helpful when asked to provide directions and recommendations.

The location and facilities at this Hampton Inn was perfect for my stay. I arrived at Midnight and the front desk was ready to help. I enjoyed the continental breakfast and the environment was quiet and refreshing. I like that they were Military Friendly.

This is our 4th stay and we think of it as a second home when we visit our daughter who attends CSU-SM. The 3rd floor is our favorite, even number rooms, and great waffles for breakfast. The hot tub is delightful, wish it were open longer hours though. Front desk staff is always friendly and helpful.

I regularly stay at Hampton Inns. The property in San Marcos is badly in need of a renovation and thorough cleaning. Staff was helpful, courteous and professional. I don't know if I would stay here again due to the lack of cleanliness of my room and the general older condition of the hotel.

We liked staying at this hotel very much. Quiet, clean, breakfast was ample to get your day started. Liked the fact they wash your duvets daily. Food places nearby. Hotel is easy to get to off freeway.

I initially had booked a room but some how the reservation got mixed up. The staff was extremely helpful and was able to book a room for me. I was extremely impressed with the amenities. The room was comfortable and clean. The staff was kind and accommodating. My over all experience was exceptional.

This Hampton Inn is well located and everything about it was what you would expect, except that the toilet flush handle was broken and the bath towels were very small and very well worn. The maintenance man replaced the handle on the toilet very quickly so toilet could be flushed. We didn't notice the thin towels until later when we... More
