The hotel staff is friendly yet very professional. Everything is clean and neat. The beds are so comfortable. The sleeper was in another part of the room with its own television. I would recommend this hotel to my colleagues! There is no question if one should choose this hotel. Oh yeah did I say free hot breakfast?

We chose this hotel because it was about halfway before our final destination. I booked a one night stay a few days ago. Unfortunately, I broke my leg in an accident the night before my trip and we had to postpone it. We called immediately to let them know in hopes of getting a some type of credit on a... More

We have a family of 7 and got two rooms. They were very accommodating and the kids loved the indoor pool, especially since it was freezing outside. Free breakfast, clean rooms, and all the towels we needed. Overall, great hotel for the money.

I was looking for a place to stay near Kyle, TX as I was driving the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience. It was a busy weekend in Central Texas and many hotels were booked.

Good location. Easy to get to from the highway. Building had "curb appeal" and looked great from the outside. The lobby and breakfast area were very nice and looked "home-y". The staff member at the desk at the time I checked in did not seem very welcoming, though. Hardly a smile to greet a travel-weary guest. When I requested a... More

I had no problem with this hotel. Staff was friendly, room was clean, hotel was clean. We got a late start on breakfast, so it was a bit picked over, but I expected that. Food was typically what you expect. Request a room facing north, toward the university, for a much nicer view. Our friends had rooms facing south and... More

I really wanted to like this hotel. The prices were good, and the size of the room was fantastic. We got a suite, because there were three of us, so we needed the pull-out couch and thought having a separate room would provide some privacy. It provided little, as the door to the bedroom had windows. The first thing I... More

Except for the noise from the highway (and every hotel in San Marcos, Texas borders I-35), this hotel was not different from any other Country Inn and Suites. At least this hotel does not face the highway, but is perpendicular to it. (...although the cookies out front were as hard as rocks.....)
