The hotel was very clean and the staff friendly. The price was right and I would stay there again. We were there for graduation and the location was great and easy to get to. Close to the school and shopping. The free breakfast was good and plenty.

When we checked in the hotel, the staff was very friendly and helpful. I was recognized as a club carlson member and our room was upgraded to a king suite that made a brief trip enjoyable. The breakfast was great. We will stay again if we are in the area.

Lot's of positives: Clean. Well maintained. Well lighted rooms. Quiet heater/air conditioner. Great indoor pool and whirlpool. Wide selection at free breakfast. Friendly attendant in the breakfast area. Free delicious cookies in lobby. But: As noted by others, towels were very rough. The bathroom had thin, single ply toilet paper. For what we paid for the room, we expected a... More

Very nice staff! We arrived late to breakfast and they allowed us to eat anyway. The people on front desk was nice and polite to! The bad side of our stay were the beds and the pillows... They were not firm at all and that ruined our back!!!

I stayed here for a conference being held at the Embassy Suites. My room/suite was very comfortable with a King size, comfy bed... Very clean. Breakfast each morning was delicious. The staff were courteous and helpful from the front desk personnel to the custodial staff.

Everything about this hotel was great for us, except the beds. They were very firm (which is a great thing for many people). We just prefer sleeping on a softer bed. The hotel was very clean and the staff was super friendly. I would suggest this hotel for my friends and family who like sleeping on a firm mattress.

This is a very quaint hotel and ideal for a quick stay near Austin and also the outlets in San Marcos. Wonderful staff that is very attentive and clean, spacious rooms. The breakfast buffet is not very good, but it is free. I would opt for dining out for breakfast at one of the many options close by. The hotel... More

We were in town for just one night to visit our daughter at Texas State University. We usually stay elsewhere, but after our stay here, we will stay here again. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and good shape. Good Value at this hotel
