Nice place - and that is coming from a couple that usually stay at a JW. Morning breakfast was what one would expect. And they did not put it out early that's for sure. That was silly, but it was their rules. Room was fine. Shower a tad tough for me at 6'2". Reason we stayed? We visited the Stone... More

We were first greeted by Sanja, the super-friendly young lady who helped check us in. Next, our attention turned to the crisp, clean feel of the lobby and dining area - and we were not disappointed by the cleanliness of our spacious room. The breakfast every morning was very good with a lot of choices from eggs, bacon, sausage, to... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights in their two bedroom suite. Unfortunately the room that we were given was a handicap room. This was not disclosed to me during any of my conversations with the hotel prior to my stay. The reason this was an issue is that one of the bathrooms was built for use by someone... More

The hotel has horrible parking. I was given room 103 far right of the hotel. Traveling with my dog and my 80 year old mom was fine until I went to the room. 1 bed and a pull out. I am fine with that until you pull out the bed and have to make it yourself. No pillows for it,... More

We had a very nice stay at the Residence Inn San Marcos. The staff was very accommodating to our family's needs throughout. We enjoyed the breakfast every morning, an experience that was notably made better by the cheerful greeting of Karl, the dining room attendant.
