I frequently stay in San Marcos a week at a time and at least 1 week per month. Candlewood Suites is my choice on a regular basis. The rooms are spacious. Every room has a two burner stove top, a microwave, dishwasher and full size refrigerator. The beds are some of the more comfortable of all of the hotels in... More

This is the first time we have stayed with Candlewood Suites. We got an amazing price for a week stay during graduation week. San Marcos has some very mediocre hotels. Through hotels.com we got a great rate. Our room is a mini apartment. Full kitchen, spacious bath, nice towels, great built-in furniture, lounge chair, a lending pantry for extras such... More

I don't know how old this property is but it looks and smells new. It was safe, quiet, clean, had friendly staff and was very comfortable. I don't do the free breakfast that many low end hotels supply so I did not notice that this hotel does not have one. What I did notice was the huge snack area with... More

This was one of the last places we stayed on our spring break vacation and one of the first things my daughter said was why didn't we stay here the other night. Well we weren't here the other night but I wish we were. This was the nicest place of all and we had the best nights rest of all.... More

Recently spent the weekend at the Candlewood Suites and found it to be comfortable, clean and covenient to locations in San Marcos. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful with rooms as well as suggestions for places to eat. It's located right on I-35, convenient to the outlet malls, the campus, and San Marcos in general. If you... More

Staff was friendly and professional. The property was clean, rooms were quiet, and the location was convenient. Did not use any of the amenities so I can't comment. I had never stayed at a Candlewood Suites property but based on this stay I would book it again.

Doesn't seem like an IHG property when they don't offer complimentary toothbrushes or toothpaste.Not to mention the housekeepers were running up and down the hallway yelling at each other early in the morning. As well, they would completely ignore the "please do not disturb signs."

Decided to stay at this suite hotel again while in town for business. This time I tried out their cupboard for some breakfast items and prepared them in my own kitchen. Great concept. The staff was great as they were before. Look forward to coming back.

Everywhere we went in the hotel, we were greeted with roaming bands of unsupervised children who were running, playing, knocking on doors and shouting. The people staying above us apparently allowed their children to jump on and off their beds. The noise finally abated around 4 am, and that's when the train whistles began. There's a note in the bathroom... More
