Not impressed! Got upgraded to king suite? Same size room with tiny couch? Refrigerator was dirty. Carpets filthy. Drawers were broken. Breakfast was inadequate to other stays at La Quinta. Some unexplained crusty residue on window? The only positive thing was the friendly desk clerks. It was bad enough that we bought our linens and changed our sheets before we... More

La Quinta San Marcos met our needs for this trip very well. We took our dogs and the hotel was equipped with places to walk the dogs and pet sacks to clean up after them. The staff was friendly and premises were maintained.

Even on the highway, our room was quiet. It appeared clean & the staff was very accommodating!!! They are pet friendly & that is a MUST!!! We used frequent traveler rewards so the cost was negligible. Would recommend if staying in San Marcos!

We were traveling to San Marcos to be with my Step Daughter for Christmas. We chose La Quinta since it was dog friendly and had no pet deposit. The check in process was incredibly east, the room while dated a bit was clean and comfortable and the staff was great! We will certainly be using this hotel again in the... More

We stayed in this older motel during graduation weekend. The room and furnishings were old, the bathtub was filthy with footprints. There were only two outlets ( that we could find) in the room. The AC was right next to the bed so that bed got blasted with air. The boiled eggs were the best part of the breakfast. to... More

Nice hotel location and desk staff. Rooms need a facelift and beds need an upgrade. Cleaning staff needs better training and be more careful in their cleaning. Wi-Fi was hit or miss and mostly miss. The breakfast was nice with the Texas shaped waffles. Nice selection of pastry items. Front desk staff very nice and efficient.

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
