The hotel and staff were fine. Unfortunately, the hotel sits next to train tracks at an intersection, so the whistles blow throughout the night and mornings, making a good night's sleep difficult. Our room was far from the elevator, but we could still hear the elevator beeping each time it was used. Due to the noise level, we won't stay... More

For hotels in this category, it was very nice. Clean room, comfy bed and linens.... It's right off the interstate. Lots of eateries near by too. For $85 bucks this place was well worth it's value. It is close to the outlets, hospital, and other destinations in San Marcos... Great bbq nearby. Had a decent size exercise room. The only... More

Pros are clean, comfortable beds with nice sheets, and friendly staff. Full size refrigerator, microwave, 2 burner stove, dishwasher in a nice spacious room design. Problem was the constant traffic on the highway. It was a windy night and flag pole outside our window flapped and clanged all night. Would recommend room on back side but not sure about train...

My wife and I stayed here for a week in Spring. It was a great location that is close to a variety of San Marcos destinations in both the North and South parts of town. Despite other reviews, we thought the location was great. Very clean, very new, very friendly staff, fairly quiet rooms. They have an area to buy... More

I try to find reasonably priced hotels when I am in San Marcos and it is difficult to find one that is clean with a comfortable bed and not too noisy. This hotel was quite reasonable and they upgraded me to a suite when I arrived. The room was very nice; well appointed with a small kitchen and living room.... More

I usually stay in hotels about 45 nights a year so I am somewhat familiar with different chains but I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The pros: The good thing is that the rooms we stayed in had a small kitchen which is nice if you want to eat in your room. The beds and pillows were very firm... More

Nice, friendly staff. It's not in the greatest part of town. Kind of an industrial area with a self-storage place next door and some kind of iron works factory behind it. Lots of signs about locking your car, and I would heed the warnings. It is about the closest thing to the outlet malls though. Minimally appointed room for $141/night.... More

We stayed one night - nice clean room. Friendly staff. Yes noise from the road but not too bad. Towels were a little rough but you can tell they are new and just need to be washed a few more times. Will definitely stay here again.
