Disgusting hotel!! Dirty!! Filthy!! But the real reason for this review is that the scums at this hotel charged me for two nights when I only stayed one! When I called to report this the clerk said the maid said our stuff was still in the room after the checkout time of 11 AM. Wrong!! I have a receipt that... More

I am no hotel snob, but this dirty, no frills place is not worth the money. With my discount the room total was $92. I would say the value for this place would be around $50. It has a definite motel feel, and dirty carpets and walls in the common areas of the adjacent building. The bed was comfortable, the... More

I booked two rooms for my family for Easter weekend. We stay at La Quinta because they are pet friendly. The rooms were great. The breakfast was very good and the location was close to Kingsville, Tx where my family lives. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone that needs a pet friendly place.

The stay was just okay. The the check in and check out was speedy. They did allow be to check in early. I was very grateful for that. I was disappointed my room did not have a refrigerator and a microwave. The quality of this motel style hotel was about the same as he Travel Lodge next door. I booked... More

We have not had good experiences with other motels in San Marcos, so we were pleasantly surprised by this La Quinta. It is a good, but not great, basic motel. It was clean, the bed was comfortable, the internet was good, TV did have limited channels but was OK, the staff was friendly. The breakfast was pretty basic, but everything... More

Pay attention to the details on the LQ site: bathroom has no door, it's a motel, not a hotel (we're accustomed to the newer LQs, breakfast is VERY basic, etc. Clean, comfortable, Trevor and staff were good; place is a bit seedy, lot of folks sitting on tailgates drinking beer, bit loud late at night, part of the fence is...

A good older hotel, as are most of the older La Quinta Inns. Good internet connections and everything else in working conditions. Good location in the town of San Marcos for restaurants, Texas State U. and other events. As with all other La Quinta Inns the TV cable selection is limited. Most of the cable TV shows I like to...

Trevor at the front desk was great upon arrival. Let me in early, so I could go to the nearby waterparks. In addition, put me in the back away from the freeway noise. #good-man. Staff was friendly, and amenities were along the lines of most LQ properties. I have stayed in the main building here, as well as the adjoining... More

I stayed there earlier this month so that my daughter could attend new student orientation at Texas State University. The staff were very friendly, the room was great (clean and spacious), and there was a variety of breakfast items. The price was excellent (but I did notice that it goes up about 100% in August, most likely for the tourists).... More
