“Great Stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

Great location and nice rooms. The rooms had a mini bar with a welcome basket. The decor is a little dated, but all in all a pleasurable stay.

This is a older hotel that has been cosmetically updated. The location is great for visiting Texas State and there are many resturant choices around. Only negative is that they have the old style hvac units (no thermonstate), so the unit runs the whole time.
They have a breakfast with a good selection of items.
Staff were great, very helpful. The breakfast lady could use some 'niceness' classes though.

This is your standard Hampton Inn. The rooms are good sized and clean, the staff was friendly, and the breakfast is decent. It is conveniently located and I got the room for slightly less than comparable hotels in the same area. I was bothered by noise from nearby rooms, especially the room above (some people never sleep I guess), which surprised me because I stayed here once before and didn't notice it.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper you may want to ensure the room above you is unoccupied. Noise from n...

There is no Four Seasons in San Marcos....My excellent rating is based on a quiet hotel (slept great), with clean rooms, clean hallways, working ice machine, etc. Everything you want in a hotel in this category. The breakfast was very good, even for a picky 16-year old daughter. It is a trick to get through the parking lot (behind Chili's).

I was scheduled to stay at a cheaper hotel that also did well in reviews, but when we pulled in the neighborhood scared us off...(drug deal in the parking lot?)...we didn't even leave the car, just called and cancelled. We were happy to be at the Hampton.

We stayed here while shoppng at the outlet malls and really enjoyed it here. They have an awesome hot breakfast and very clean rooms. Close to all major area attractions.

Room Tip: There was a frig, microwave, and coffee maker that was helpful.

Several small things made this hotel good and not great. The parking spaces are tiny. SUV’s took up one and a third spaces each. Smaller cars had very little room to open their doors. I decided to park in the back of the lot to avoid door dings. Our nonsmoking room had the distinct smell of chemicals trying to cover up the smoke smell. The hotel wasn’t dirty but it didn’t feels as clean as other Hamptons I have stayed in. On a positive note we called the hotel on our drive in and asked what exit to take. The front desk clerk was very friendly. She knew the exit number and even asked if we were north or southbound so that she could tell us if we would be turning left or right.

Hotel is clean and nicely furnished. Both the lobby and the room we had was tastefully decorated and clean. The bathroom was on the small side - but it was Ok since the room itself was of nice size. I thought staff at the front desk was friendly. I was pleased that I was granted persmission for a late check-out due to an event that was going on at Texas State (which was the reason for our trip to San Marcos). Also, the continental breakfast was better than most. Enjoyed our stay!
