I stayed there for two days due to a conference I was attending in the same hotel. I could not believe that, in additional to the free and delicious breakfast, they also have a free happy hour with snacks! I will definitely have to come to the hotel again for a weekend getaway!

This is a beautiful hotel and conference center. You really don't have to leave the hotel for nothing, not unless you want to shop. Excellent food at the restaurant. Enjoyed the Spa. The breakfast was good cooked to order complimentary breakfast. Overall experience was excellent!

Hotel was nice, pool was nice, breakfast and bar was nice. I sure did miss the lemon shrimp and pasta dish. I also wish that the rooms were cheaper per night, it seemed a little extreme since we were only in San Marcos Texas.

This place is HUGE. The lobby opens into 10 story open atrium with glass elevators. The property includes a spa, pool and restaurants with bar. If the near by rivers and universities don't lure you to recreation you might decide never to leave during your stay. The included breakfast is beyond compare to any hotel I've stayed at including omelets... More

My family had a great time at this hotel in San Marcos. We were visiting our eldest son who is attending Texas State. The hotel is close to the outlets, to Wimberley, several attractions and the university. The room was spacious and clean. The room temperature just right and the breakfast delicious.

Shopping trip turned into a disaster with this hotel!! Hotel is so dingy and outdated- all the fixtures are beat up and outdated. Room was filthy- looked like housekeeping never came. Doors disgusting, spit on the faucet, etc. BUGS on my pillows!!! Uncomfortable bed. WORST BREAKFAST EVER. All cold and inedible. Left breakfast buffet hungry. Very loud in the hallways-... More

Here for a business conference and my stay so far has exceeded my expectations. Hotel all around is very clean, staff is very professional and courtesy. If the hotel isn't sold out, it's gotta be close to max capacity and even still my room service dinner, ordered at prime time 7pm, was delivered to the 10th fl. in less than... More

This is a wonderful hotel. The suites have a great floor plan, the access to a refrigerator and microwave is unusual in a hotel of this caliber. Clean, classy, and the staff was very accommodating. I highly recommend this hotel.

I had business in San Marcos and stayed at the Embassy Suites. Every single aspect was excellent. The staff was always friendly and helpful, the rooms were spotless and we enjoyed all the amenities, from the full breakfast buffet to the social gathering in the evening.

Had seen this property many times going back and forth from Dallas to San Antonio. Had business in Gruene area this week and the hotel on the river that was hosting the meeting was full by the time I booked, so I chose the Embassy. Check in was painless, got to the first room and it smelled of smoke and... More
