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.

Clean rooms. Nice staff. Pool was refreshing and clean. Stayed 3 days for a wedding and was very pleased with the hotel. Good location to downtown. Neighborhood was safe. Everyone was friendly and housekeeping was great.

The place is nasty. The bedspreads were filthy, with huge stains. The restroom had bugs on the floor. The beds and pillows should of been replaced years ago. The carpets and furniture were disgusting. Do not stay here.

Easy freeway access, fairly quick check-in, clean room. No frills, just a good place to spend a night or two. It's right off the freeway. New Bedding was nice and clean. I just needed a clean shower and bed. Shower was clean and the bed was comfortable. I slept well and had a nice shower. I got just what I... More

Do not stay here. This place was nasty!! Stained carpets and broken furniture. There was trash on the floor and behind the furniture. The AC didn't workat all and when we went to the front desk, the clerk refused to believe us. Go stay anywhere but here while in San Marcos.
