I had reserved a non-smoking room on Hotels.com website, but when we got to our room it was a smoking room, went to front desk and asked for a non-smoking room since this is what i had paid for and I also have asthma. The staff said that they are fully booked and cannot give me another room.. decided to... More

The room was quite small, one of those they renovated a few years ago. It was neat and mostly clean. Had a wood-look laminate floor. They are easier to keep clean than carpet, but not with a vacuum cleaner - needs mopped daily. The floor was sticky and the bottoms of my white socks got dirty. I came in late... More

This is going to sound terrible but this was by far the worst place I've stayed in all of my travels. The front desk woman acted as if I were inconveniencing her by checking in. She couldn't tell me where my room was and I'm about 98% positive there was a prostitute checking in behind me. I told myself that... More

This place is a bare bones place to stay for the $98 we paid for a Saturday night...and one bed to top it off. We were made to feel like we were imposing when we checked in. No iron, no closet, very tiny. One microwave in the office area between the ice maker and a vending machine. Found some hair... More

We said here since it was very close to where my daughter is living while going to TX State. We came down to do some pre-graduation errands and had Several rooms already booked for when we returned in May. I'm glad we did a pre-visit, we're now booked down the street. When I checked in the employee claimed she was... More

So 2/3's of the time one would stay at this location you would be ok. Yes the floors are dirty but 99 cent flip flops help. Yes there might be a hair in your linen. Non smoking rooms still smell as if someone just lit up next to you. Looks like the colder winter months keeps the scrum of the... More

In a town where most of the mid level big name chain places go for $150 to $200 per night, the $56 with tax that I paid was a real bargain. The room was very spartan but it was also very clean and well maintained. The noise level was minimal and the room certainly functioned well. The area is pretty... More

My family and I stayed at this Motel 6 the night of 11/28/2014. The room was nice. It appeared to be recently remodeled. I have no complaints regarding the room, and was all that I expected for a Motel 6. I paid an additional $4.99 for higher speed internet service and the service was terrible. The internet would work well... More

I have tons of reasons to visit San Marcos and staying in a fancy hotel just is not in my budget right now. This Motel 6 is my go to motel for any of my San Marcos trips. I really like the modern look to the rooms and I have had good experiences the past 4 times I stayed here... More
