A lot of our guests were traveling from out of state, and we wanted everyone to be able to stay in one place that was comfortable and affordable. The hotel itself proved to be perfect for everyone.

A nice marina where you can rent boats right onto the lake in the resort. Close to all major areas of San Marcos while the area is nice and...
