Having visited this hotel over the year, this year was terrible. Mold in the bathroom Smelled bad due to humidity problems Carpets stained in hall way Room not properly cleaned To top it ants in the kingsize bed under the sheets and pillows. My wife and me got bitten by these ants. Hotel is dated and has hygiene issues.

We have been living at the Country Inn for the past two weeks, and will continue into a third, as we close on a house in San Marcos. The king suite is perfect for my husband and I, the staff is friendly, and the morning breakfast changes daily. I would recommend this place again and again, especially for the price.... More

Could be a cleaner place for the price; We also used the hot tub and it was not hot, only warm; no shower pressure. Employees were very helpful and nice. Breakfast was what you would expect and food was fine.

Hotel is right off the freeway but we slept well and were comfortable. The pool is nice and was a welcome relief from the heat of the day. Nice breakfast with decent selection of food. Close to downtown and the outlet malls.
