Our family visit to San Marcos was made even better by the quality of this hotel and the friendliness of the staff. They were all smiles and very helpful. The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The parking was convenient, Internet worked well, breakfast was hot and tasty. We were very glad a guest laundry was available and working since... More

We stopped for the night at this Best Western as husband has BW loyalty card. It was a typical BW - clean, comfortable, pleasant staff and acceptable breakfast - nothing startling amazing or...

Spent two nights while skydiving at San Marcos. Wanted something affordable, clean and close to everything. This hotel hit the mark on all three. The less money spent on lodging meant more for fun jumping.

I made a reservation weeks in advance. When I arrived, I was surprised to learn there were no rooms available. No one could seem to explain what happened. I talked to the man at the front desk and the 1-800 number for Best Western. No explanation and was encouraged to call back Monday to complain. I just called to complain... More

My husband and I stayed at this Best Western and were very pleased with the room, convenience and service. The breakfast was average but they put it out early and that worked for us. Would stay again.

This is my third stay within a short period at Best Western San Marcos and I am very pleased and satisfied with their services. I will recommend this Hotel to others as well. I might come back after a week after my business trip to northern states and continue to stay here.

No exercise room, outdoor pool area, bugs in the room & a missed wake up call. Rooms are over priced for what you get. The breakfast was fine and clean. The area did not appear that safe. Someone was murdered approx 500 yards from the hotel the first night I was there. On a positive note the rental car was... More

Nothing extraordinary, but no complaints. Good value for the price. Polite and helpful staff. Nice and clean. Hot breakfast. Good bed. Near the university. Right on I-35. Seems expensive, but I'm sure that is attributable to the Bush-Obama devaluation of the US Dollar.

We enjoyed our stay in The Best Western in San Marcos. The staff if very friendly and helpful and our rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast is more than adequate and we consider it a good value for the price.
