Good room rates, very clean room. Comfy bed. The staff was very friendly. It is a great location for our annual tubing trips with all of our friends. We had a total of seven rooms between us all and everyone was happy. The breakfast is not a "hot meal" breakfast, but it isnt advertised as such either. We usually eat... More

Yes, you get what you pay for! I booked this room thru Priceline and read the reviews (which were mixed). Our room was upstairs with no elevator. I could live with that. But these are things that really concerned me: HORRIBLE odor in the room, old electrical plugs, no fire alarm and thin walls! We turned the A/C down which... More

All hotels on the I-35 strip between Austin and San Antonio are over priced due to the attractions in the area. With that said the Red Roof Inn was an older property with not many amenities, very sparse breakfast, cereal and pastry. It is what I expected for the price. It was clean, the bed was comfortable and the manager... More

We stayed in 101. The room was clean, bed comfortable, a.c. Cold, & shower pressure very good. I also like that they are encouraging ppl to go 'green'. Managers very pleasant, too.

Wish there was more breakfast selection. Employees were very nice. Our room was clean and comfortable. Small issue was bright light outside. The service was very good. We would easily stay here again.

We have stayed here multiple times while visiting our daughter who attends TxState. We have always been pleasantly surprised with how friendly the staff was, how clean and well kept the rooms are, and very happy with the cost.

I have been going to Wimberley almost every weekend for nearly a year now and I have found it less expensive to stay in San Marcos than in Wimberley. My wife and I have stayed at a large number of different motels along Int. 35 and if available we always prefer to stay at the Red Roof Inn. The price... More
