Our stay was very nice. The staff was friendly, room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. I highly recommend the soft blanket! I would go stay again with no doubt! I highly recommend the place for anyones needs. Price was as much as going to stay at another other place here.

We stayed over Thanksgiving. It was wonderful that the staff working the holiday made us feel especially welcome. Thanksgiving dinner was excellent. The location of this hotel is superior for access from the Interstate as well as very close to both outlet malls and small town shopping. Parking is easy and well located. The price is very good for the...

Embassy Suites is consistently an outstanding experience when it comes to the breakfast and evening food offered. Rooms are quite and the lobby is a peaceful lovely experience. This hotel is connected to a conference center and there was a conference running during our stay. Nonetheless, the elevators and food service was not slowed by the volume of guests. All...

Stayed nearly a week for work and a conference. The hotel is roughly equidistant between the great cities of San Antonio and Austin. As San Marcos is fairly quiet by comparison it means you're split for choice which way to drive in the evening, an easy hour or so (traffic allowing) in the car to either city. (Of course, you...

This hotel is not kept as clean as it once was, and needs to receive more attention since it is an area where more tourists/shoppers frequent. The restroom, throughout the night smelled like sewage, and when I complained to the clerk in the morning, she stated that an engineer would look into it. Upon returning to my room that day,...

Got in around 7 on a Monday the week of Thanksgiving. Check in was curt- not rude but not welcoming either. Room was fine. Clean. Love the suite- could have brought my kid with me. Ate dinner there, the sirlon. Nice size and decent taste. Breakfast was great. Egg white omelet. I was conducting business there and had no problems

"I can't help you" is their theme. Jerry "the manager" repeated that three times when I called to see if they had my wallet, and directed me to their lost and found page. Their lost and found page sends an email which is the equivalent of "don't call us we'll [email] you." So now I have no credit cards or...
