very nice bathroom, roomy and spacious. ok bed, very very nice staff. For the two night price of $181.90 I paid in summer during the high season, I felt the value was lacking when so many last minute deals are available on priceline name your price or express deals on priceline for Austin. Austin is a bit of a drive... More

Good deal for the price. Room clean. Beds ok. Outside of motel needs a good power washing. After reading other reviews of hotels in area, will say this one did not have any bugs that I saw. Room did have a little bit of a weird smell. Close to Texas State and lots of restaurants. Just up the interstate from... More

Motel 6 is a hit or miss. Some are better than others. This one was decent. The staff was nice and we got a room that was away from the pool due to the noise level. The floor was a little sticky but was cleaned during the day before we returned for Saturday night. Given the price and the location,... More

Dog friendly, and people friendly too! Staff, Laurie taking care of the front desk, awesome service! We came on a Sunday late afternoon, I saw the cleaning carts out still at like 5:30! Super busy weekend, but everyone was still working hard. Here's where you know you've got a good crew- they're talking and don't know the customer is watching,... More

Driving back from Mexico to Iowa in April. I crossed the border at 4pm made it to this motel that evening. A perfect stopping point. The person at the desk was more than helpful. The room was very clean and had a large tv. Very relaxing after a long day on the road. Will definitely stay again.

Arrived check in very fast and smooth. A most courteous staff member helped me. Very clean rooms, good water pressure, parking not so great but works. Pet friendly, right off highway and very close to stuff. Room 134 was a little hard getting to from parking lot but is right in front of the pool. Great vending, laundry room. Works... More

I was very surprised at this Motel 6. Traveling on a strict budget is not fun so you usually get what you pay for. Room was clean, staff was friendly, even calling the room to make sure it was ok. All at a great price. I will stay here again the next time I am in San Marcos.

A pain to get to the room, had to drag the suitcases around a pool. I wish I had asked for a room right in front of the parking lot. Room had a slight urine smell. Beds a little hard. No box springs. Beds are on some sort of platform. Would only recommend one person/per bed.Very loud area. A woman... More

We spent the night of March 8 at the Motel 6 in San Marcos, TX. Never again! I requested a non-smoking room, but tiny cubicle we got reeked of smoke, mustiness, and over-scented air freshener. The room itself was cute though small - two double beds on modernistic platforms wih maybe a foot between them, new paint and floors, with... More
