Air conditioner didn't work. It was ridiculous hot. Had to be in a smoking room, which was disgusting.

The place could of been cleaner and the rooms are a bit small. But it was worth the price for one night. The staff was friendly.

I would recommend this hotel, an overall 5out of 5.parking was accessable,they give you three pillows,1 soft,1 medium, and 1 firm. They have a 12 pm check out time and dont bother you if you if you are running late.

I have been going to Ramada San Marcos for three years now and have always stayed at the same place. The pool and patio amenities are great for those days you just want to stay in and relax. Many stores and shops are around the area which make it very convenient to get the things you need. The staff also... More

The location was actually kind of scary. Windows looked old, AC was old and vents were broke. Lights were out and walls looked dirty. I would never stay here again.
