Stayed here on a blind Hotwire reservation over Comic Con weekend and a very pleasant find, although a bit out of the way. Customer service was great, especially by Nick, who went out of his way to print us a map to comic con, and even booked a train reservation for our daughter and printed out the ticket. On our...

I absolutely loved the bed! And more so loved that it was all white! So nice! I also loved the shower! I could have stayed in it forever! My only issues were that the wifi was very iffy. You couldn't stay connected. Also when maid service came the first time they didn't bother to leave more toiletries. I did LOVE... More

This place is all show and no go. Beautiful bathrobes, but not enough hangers in the closet. Good idea on the mirror lights (all around), but unnecessarily harsh lighting. Rain showerhead in shower, but not adjustable. Several other things; none of them huge problems, but for $200+ a night there shouldn't be any problems. The only thing that I felt... More

My wife and I stayed at the Lakehouse this past weekend for a wedding in which the bride and groom had a few rooms here for many of us that would be traveling for their wedding close by. We wanted an early check in on a busy Saturday after the 4th of July. We got in about 2 hours before... More

Normally, I stay by the ocean and the bugs issues are not seen there. This time I decided to try this Expedia special $188/nt. Night 1, my room was next to the trash dumpster that was full and overflowing with trash. In AM, still full of trash spilling out of the dumpster. I told the desk, she said it was... More

Thank you for your feedback pickyreno, and I'm sorry to see you had a less than relaxing experience at the Lakehouse. We are constantly trying new things to battle the bugs that call Lake San Marcos home. The nice thing is that they don't come out during day. This gives our guests a great opportunity to take advantage of the... More

This is my second review of the Lakehouse Hotel and Resort, having stayed there approximately this time of year in 2013. Despite having had a slightly rocky start to my stay, I am very happy to report that the quality is still the same, having had impressive excellent service on all fronts. Unfortunately, when I checked in the first night,... More

I wanted a special place for our anniversary, especially since I had been away on a trip for a month. We arrived at the Lakehouse and it was far more than I expected. When I mentioned the anniversary celebration upon checking in, the person at the desk gave us a bigger room at no extra charge. It was great! It... More

We were part of a large wedding group staying here for a single night on June 28. We had arrived at approximately 2pm hoping to check in early to freshen up for the 430pm wedding.

Robert S, Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the property. I apologize we were not able to have your room ready in time for the wedding, that can be very stressful.

This was the most beautiful and relaxing hotel. Very nice rooms with comfortable beds. Awesome pool area with fireplaces. Get a room with a lake view so worth sitting outside watching the different birds on the lake.

alliegolden, I wish you could have stayed the whole weekend! You could have enjoyed the lake and pools or even golfed a round at St. Mark. Not only do they have an amazing breakfast but they have a very challenging and beautiful golf course. Thanks for the recommendation and hopefully we get to welcome you back in the future. More
