This hotel is a great value when staying in San Marcos. We love the outdoor pool, proximity to dining, and comfortable clean rooms. Staffing was minimal, but they were very customer oriented and made every effort to provide quality service in a timely manner. I was impressed by them. Always get best rates here when I'm in San Marcos for... More

I have stay in February on a Tuesday, my room was quiet and inexpensive, but last month I had to stay over the weekend. Tons of tubers, loud and have parties. Recommend the room right next to the office at least one side of your room will be quite. No restaurant minable breakfast, sweet rolls, coffee. They locked me out... More

By all means- come stay at this palace and enjoy the resident crackheads as they wander the parking lot and hallways with abandon. Revel in the disgust that is the stained and pockmarked bed sheets. Enjoy indoor and outdoor living simultaneously as the gap in the door so playfully allows. Stare in wonderment at the front desk help who try... More

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.

I brought a team from around the country to work in Wimberley Tx. following the floods that devastated the area... One of the only places that had rooms available to accommodate was the Econo Lodge in neighboring city - San Marcos. We had a total of 4 rooms. One room had feces still in the toilet... and the toilet wouldn't... More

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.
