This is one of the older La Quintas that has doors opening to the outside. It was, however, clean and adequate for our over night stay. It was an OK value but not a bargain. If you just want a place to rest your head overnight, this hotel is good. We did notice that we could hear the people next... More

I would recommend La Quinta in San Marcos. It is a very clean hotel. The staff are always friendly and very helpful. And it is only a couple of exits from the outlet mall. It's very nice that they also accomodate smokers.

If you are courageous enough to stay in this motel, immediately upon arrival CHECK THE CLEANLINESS. My floor had urine on it and there was something (unidentified) in the bathtub. One of the wash cloths was stained (or else dirty). I DID like the friendly guys at the check-in desk and the very nice and friendly housekeeping staff member who... More

We stayed one night at the LaQuinta Inn in San Marcos and found it to be a nice place. It was 2-star, so no frills, but the room was comfortable and clean, which is all we were looking for when we needed to vacate our home while having some work done. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was large,... More

Although I did receive follow up from management after I submitted a survey post-stay, I would still not recommend this facility. First off, it is hard to get to coming from the south. You have to exit the freeway and then driveway miles along an access road. Second, the place is old and not well maintained. Third, it had a... More

We had reserved a king room with this hotel and arrive at the hotels scheduled time, only to find the room not ready. We were planning for a wedding and were not able to make the preparations we had planned due to the room not being ready.

Could not check in at 3 pm as stated online. We had an event to go to so we couldn't check in until 11 pm. When we were able to check in Trevor at the front desk gave us a smoking room because that's all he had left since I waited so long to check in. Really? Our room smelled... More

Friendly and helpful staff on check in. Other than that, there is little to recommend this place, I gave two stars in recognition of the nice person at the desk when I checked in. This is evidently a party spot for kids. Friday night the party started at 2:30 am, Saturday it was closer to 3:00 am. When I went... More

About the only thing to recommend the hotel is its location, next time I'll probably choose the Embassy Suites which is only one exit away on 1-35. The probably is old and poorly cared for. Mold in the bath, dirt in the bedroom.

Never again. Mold in bathroom, excessive noise on the second floor above us, refused to get us a fridge for special diet foods, had to use a towel to keep bugs out at the bottom of the door, carpet pulling from the wall under AC, tub was either stained or just nasty. It was very difficult to get to.
