Clean rooms, good breakfast and friendly staff. First room they gave us wasn't what I reserved on-line but staff responded right away. They found us another room very quickly. Didn't use pool or spa but it looked nice. Will stay here again.

My stay was only for a night with a meeting in the AM but my expereince was fantastic. The front desk was very knowleable and the staff excellent in addressing my questions and/or needs. Excellent referrals to restaurants in the area was "spot on". Breaakfast and meeting facilities were also "top shelf"

Friendly staff, great price, clean and appealing in all areas of hotel, and good location if you plan on shopping at the outlet malls. Adequate parking with no issues of persons tampering with vehicles over night.

The noise from the road was so bad and continued throughout the night. Also, our neighbor (a large family) was up all night making noise. The walls are very thin. All in all, our family got little rest.

Went on a family trip and chose this hotel due to the good reviews. We got a room on the bottom floor, and little did we know that the kitchen was directly adjacent to our room. There were doors slamming and people banging on the walls most of the night. These were employees, not inconsiderate guests. Normally an employee will... More

Overall experience was good. The price was too high for the condition of the room. The carpet was dirty and the back of the bathroom door was in poor condition. These conditions don't bother me, but for $200 a night I would expect better conditions. The breakfast was excellent. The staff was very friendly.

My Family and I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The room was nice and beds very comfy. I like that they changed some of the breakfast items each day, that added a nice variety. For those looking to shop at the San Marcos Outlet shops, it's the perfect place to stay.
