“Beautiful Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2005

Stopped for an overnight stay on the way home and by chance got the last non smoking room! Our family loved the hotel and the staff. Clean affordable luxury. The breakfast bar was yummy too! We give it an all thumbs up rating! Thanks Hampton Inn San Marcos!

Definitely up to Hampton standards. Very new and clean looking. Excellent service and a great breakfast. Only drawbacks were my AC, which would not stay on (luckily it was cool outside) and a near-shortage of hot water in the morning (water was warm, not hot). The elevator made scary noises. I was so pleased overall that I didn't bother to mention any of the above to the staff. Would definitely stay there again.

The San Marcos Hampton Inn is a fairly new hotel. It is well designed and the outside looks like a regular hotel. But it is the inside that is the best. The lobby is very pretty and has a working fireplace inside it and is filled with tables and chairs and even a couch or two for reading. The office staff is friendly and can even help give you advice as to restaurants and attractions. The rooms are nice sized and have good beds and the furniture is dark wood and goes well in the rooms. The AC system works very good and was very comfortable. The TV was brand new and as large as mine at home. On the second floor some of the room's outside doors face the lobby. This is perfect if you want to see how many people are out in the lobby eating breakfast. The complimentary breakfast serves eggs, bacon, bagels, cereal, and even pancakes. They are very good and they keep refreshing it so the food does not get stale. Be warned that there can be a full room because it seems everyone in the hotel is eating breakfast there. That is how good it is and many free breakfasts are not any good. Fortunately this one is the exception. The location is good because it is right on the freeway and close to a Red Lobster and other nearby restaurants. I would suggest staying here if you are going to Schlitterbahn. It costs half the cost of lower quality hotels in New Braunfels and is only a 30 minute drive to the waterpark. Plus the free breakfast is good because you can get a good meal in before shopping or doing Schlitterbahn waterpark.
