People I know said this was THE place to stay in San Marcos. I was a bit disappointed. The room never really cooled down, making for an uncomfortable nights sleep. The pillows were small and lumpy, and smelled dirty. The room smelled like body odor, and I found pieces of cereal in the corners. I was glad to get back... More

The room was clean and well maintained. Breakfast was great and came at no additional charge. The bed was a bit hard. The only thing that I wish would have come without additional charge was wifi. You would think at the rate they charge for the room they would include free wifi.

We were in San Marcos for the 3-day Texas State Orientation. The front desk was very cordial when I arrived. I called ahead to let them know that it would be 3AM before I would arrive and they were waiting on me. That was a very nice thing to do.

We stayed here for a conference. There were also several little league baseball teams staying in the hotel. There was not enough staff to handle a full hotel. We called for room service and were told we would be called back when they were not so busy. Our call was not returned. We were unable to eat at the restaurant... More

This hotel is awesome. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The complimentary evening reception and breakfast cannot be beat. My only complaint was that one of the three elevators was broken. I would definitely stay here again and recommend others do to!!!

We stay here several times a year for various reasons, and we have never been disappointed. Our rooms are always clean, the staff is always friendly, and our overall experience is always great. I've had experiences at the other hotels in this area, and none of them compare to this one. Definitely the best hotel in the San Marcos/New Braunfels... More

I stay at this hotel every other year for a week at a time for a work conference. The hotel is nice and has a lot of benefits, one of which is its superb staff. Every staff member I met was excellent to work and interact with. The facility is great, but the rooms are starting to show a bit... More

We stayed at this Embassy Suites on Saturday, July 19th. The hotel is nice, and the staff couldn't be sweeter. However I did have a couple of issues: 1. The Manager's Reception from 5:30 - 7:30 is very cheaply managed. The snack offerings were goldfish, mixed snack mix, ranch dressing and picante sauce. Pitiful. Also, no Pinot Grigio was offered....

We normally stay at this hotel two or three times a year for various functions. This year we were there for a family vacation with two other vacations, but one of the three elevators was down for repair or maintenance. For the entire four days we were there regardless of what time it was, we were struggling to gain access... More

This is a nice Embassy Suites. The front desk staff were efficient, if not very accommodating or friendly. It can be very crowded, and had a bank of elevators down, which caused lines to form. The breakfast always spilled out into the bar and lobby areas because of the crowds, but it was well managed, and there was plenty. I... More
