The Hampton Inn San Marcos provided fast and friendly service! Our family agreed that the added benefit was the quality of the breakfast! This was a great find and on such a short notice (I could not have planned it better). We will stay again!

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed January 12, 2017 via mobile

The hotel was very easy to find off the freeway and there were no surprises...great clean room, comfy bed and free breakfast. The front desk clerk was a very nice guy and check in was a breeze. I stayed in #208 and it was as quite as a fish with no freeway/street noise at all,

Stayed at hotel for sister's wedding. Great staff and amenities. Rooms were simple and clean. I was able to sleep! The bed and pillows were great. One problem,the entrance door and the bathroom door were too close together.

Everything was perfect except a hair on my blanket. Food was fine for the price I paid. There were waffles and eggs. The location was perfectly 5 mins away from my NCLEX testing center. There were no toothbrushes so bring your own. Room had plenty plugs for devices..very roomy!
