This is a wonderful property with an excellent staff! Emily helped us to make sure we had everything in our room that we needed. My husband and I can’t wait to go back and visit! 10/10 recommend going there for business or vacation!

Hotel's Favorite
My family loves getting a staycation in at the Lakehouse. We have come here 3 times now, and my 4 year old now calls it OUR lake house. The hotel's marina has brand new pontoon boats to rent, paddle boards, kayaks, etc to cruise the beautiful lake San Marcos. It's also minutes away from the SD safari zoo and Legoland, making it even better for families. The campfires that they have around the pool are a great way to wind down the day with the smore kits they offer you. My wife and I came without our son the first time to get a quick romantic getaway-- great local wine/craft beer to accompany our boat rides and campfires with beautiful views of the lake from the amazing restaurant, Decoy. The food and ambience of this area really is easy to overlook, but we are so glad we found it. We experienced the best hospitality, on par with some much pricier hotels I have stayed at. Thanks Lakehouse for the epic times for my family, we will be coming back very soon!

What a find the Lakehouse Hotel & Resort is! I wanted to visit some friends in the area and they recommended this spot. I checked in late and was personally escorted to my Lake View room, along with my personal pack for the makings of S’Mores. I was able to toast them over a communal outdoor fire pit...what a special way to end my day. My room was very comfortable in every way and I enjoyed having my own balcony overlooking Lake Marcos. In the morning I went to the coffee shop. I must say, I’m a complete coffee snob and the barista made me a fine latte. I then took advantage of the complimentary use of a paddleboard and explored the entire lake. It was a great workout and fun adventure. I had lunch afterward at the restaurant overlooking the lake and then topped off my day with a swim in the pool. The Lakehouse also has a lovely golf course, so it’s much more than a hotel and I’d highly recommend if you find yourself in the area

Thank you for sharing your experience BindersR5! We believe that Lakehouse Resort is truly a hidden gen, and are glad you found us. Our Premier Lake View rooms are typically the most popular because of the stunning views of the lake from those balconies, so we are glad you were able to enjoy them! Thank you for the recommendation, and we hope to see you here again soon.

I did not plan to write a review, however, as I was planning our next trip, I saw that this hotel had a 4-star rating. This is at best a 3-star hotel. At the time I called to confirm our room choice, we were given an upgrade. When we checked in 2 days later, the woman checking us in took an unusually long time checking us in with many more key strokes than necessary. After almost 5 minutes I asked if there was an issue and she gave me some vague answer, got our keys and indicated where our rooms would be. Upon entry, we saw that the room had double beds instead of the queen beds we had been upgraded to. We went back to the front desk, there was another person. We told her we had been upgraded to a queen room before arrival. I didn't expect her to grovel but some sort of acknowledgment that we had been inconvenienced would have been nice. She did send us to another room with queen beds. However, the resort was being remodeled and our room was obviously not finished and there was construction noise in the adjacent rooms. The hotel was NOT at full capacity since we were there prior to COVID19 lock down in February 2020 in the middle of the week. The pool area was nice and the smores kit given at check-in time is a fun idea.

Kirbysumma, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We appreciate all feedback, and apologize that there was an issue with your room choice. We have not had any construction or renovations done this year, but did get new carpet in all of our hotel rooms in 2019. We hope that you come back and give us a chance to make things right in the future.
