If you want to hear s*x panting ( because the rooms have very thin walls) and you ask for a room change,you will be greeted with four police cars because the manager Bianca and Leanna (the rudest persons i´ve ever known) will call them. By the way, if you get in by midnight, don´t expect a clean room the next... More

We spent three nights. This location recently changed from a Holiday Inn Express. The room was large and attractive, so it's hard not to give a higher rating except that so many little things were below par for this price level. At check-in, the clerk was informative and friendly. Our coffee maker didn't work, but was replaced by the next... More

Stayed at San Marcos Hotel & Suites July 2013 for a week. Very clean and good breakfast. The housekeeping staff work extremely hard and do a great job! Even though hotel was full up for the weekend, breakfast items were kept stocked. We will stay again!

Stayed one night with 2 adults and 1 child. The hotel was a mix of things. Service was excellent except for one slow employee. The breakfast was acceptable although they were slow to refill some of the items. The pool looked pretty good and there were several people using it although our family did not. The beds, bathroom TV etc.... More

We wanted to stay at the Hampton inn across the street. Unfortunatelly for us, it was full. This hotel was priced the same, so my expectations were that it would be a comparable stay. As soon as I walked in, the first thing that I noticed was a strong smell of a Perfume like chemical. My first thought was that... More

We stayed at this hotel for two weeks while we were working in San Marcos. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and comfortable. Location was good with restaurants very close to the hotel. It used to be a holiday inn express so the rooms are great. I will stay here anytime I am in San Marcos.

Was a busy weekend and many hotels were full. This Hotel was just OK, decor a little dated and they still have the Holiday Inn sign so we had a hard time locating it as it was billed as the San Marcos Inn and Suites. The price was to high for the accommodation. With a cost of $140+ I expect... More

This hotel has changed from Holiday Inn Express and is no longer a part of IHG. It is old, worn, and in need of maintenance and updating. The chair seats in the lobby area are stained and look dirty. Our room was old and in need of maintenance. The shower head moved in and out of the wall; the caulk... More

We always stay here when we come to town. This time as in every time it was clean. They have a new thing with their tv remote control. They have a clean remote box they put the remote in after they clean them.I really like this idea especially if that is what they are doing. We never try to eat... More
