“The best in San Marcos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

I'm sure this must be the best in San Marcos. Absolutely no complains. Very clean room. Very friendly front office. And the shuttle service to the nearby shopping malls is a added value, and you have no reason to get bored. The pool was very good. I should mention about the free drinks served in the bar in the evening hours. It's a wonderful idea, and it's fun to chill out after a hectic day. The restaurant was good. Though it may look slightly overpriced, the food is worth a mention. The massive structure and the huge lobby is a plus. I spent a lot of time in the lobby. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Our room, meeting rooms, breakfast meal and evening drinks were all excellent! Clean room and very helpful and friendly staff. Close by the Outlet Stores and other stores. Will stay again! We really enjoyed our stay.

I stayed here for an onsite stamping and scrapbook convention. Incredible experience for the money. I had a suite with refrig and microwave. I got cooked-to-order omelets and fruit, one of many choices for the complimentary breakfast. They even had a managers reception in the evening with free wine, beer or daily cocktail with a crunchy snack bar. This hotel was definitely part of the reason the whole weekend was such a wonderfully special experience!

This facility has the best customer service and accommodations around. I travel a lot and stay in lots of hotels that are full service and this group really appreciates your stay. The dinning and lounge are very nice to enjoy a wonderful meal and cocktails.

This hotel was beautiful and the service was wonderful. The only issue we had was at the evening reception which we thought would actually have food, not Goldfish type snacks. Other than that, it was a great place to stay with a friendly and helpful staff. Check-in was so fast, I was stunned. Will definitely stay there again.

Very nice hotel and conference center located in the middle of a farm field. Can't say much for the view from the room. Restaurant is slow for dinner. Breakfast is good but the one egg chef gets over worked when there is a line of customers. Bathtub has no place for soap and shampoo. Need a step stool to adjust the shower head designed for NBA players.

I am in the hotel industry, so you know I am looking out for everything that could possibly go wrong. Not the case with the Embassy Suites San Marcos! The accomodations were nice but their staff was spectacular. From the door man, to the front desk staff, to the breakfast attendants, housekeeping, bartenders and event the maintenance man who kept my husband company taking football at the pool. Wonderful experience!
