Every aspect of our extended stay was terrific. Welcoming, friendly staff, clean comfortable room, few breakfast choices but was fine for us and all at a great price. Front Office staff and the housekeeping staff, if you needed anything they were very accommodating. I would highly recommend this as a must stay.

It's true, it is the absolute worst hotel advertised, no hot water and filthy. Anyone that says " this is a good hotel " is not telling the truth.Everyone involved with this hotel should be a shame of themselves, especially TripAdvisor for representing them. DON,T STAY AT THIS HOTEL.

Worst hotel ever. No cable TV in the room, no iron or ironing board. There was no hot water,restroom door didn't have a latch, door to the room was so crooked there was an inch gap on one corner. If you have any other options, stay somewhere else.

Used to live in San Marcos so I knew this would be a good spot to stay. Close to all kinds of places to eat, and mostly importantly to downtown. Only reason for 4 stars is that the room was non smoking, but definitely smelled like smoke.

I have to start with location it is very near to food joints and shopping malls in the city and they have ample parking! Pool was clean and neat. Staff are friendly and helpful, room service was just great! I would give a thumbs for all they provide for the price you pay
