We were pleasantly surprised in every way with this property! We came to the area to visit a local waterpark, and we had everything we needed and more. A nice, big bathroom- large king room, great breakfast, and the entire property was very clean. Thank you!

The rooms are clean and quiet. The staff is very helpful and we had no problems. We spent the weekend. The hotel is close to major roads so you can get to wherever you are going. We spent time with friends and drove around town to see what has changed since we went to college there.

Facility was comfortable and extremely quiet given location on interstate 35. We felt that every one went the extra distance to guarantee a pleasant stay. Location was very convenient to shopping at outlet mall if we had been so inclined.

Overall this was fair experience. The in room refrigerator would not cool, and could not find any controls to lower the temp. There were ants in the bathroom that we killed upon arrival. There is serious lack of parking for the number of rooms available.

Overall, my stay met my most basic needs. The room was clean, check-in and check-out was easy, staff was nice, they offered complimentary breakfast, ect. Although, every time we entered the room, it felt gross and muggy and took forever to cool off. I understand that Texas is hot this time of year, but I am from the gulf coast... More

We have stayed at this BW a couple of times. It is close to the Tanger Outlets, the river, lots of restaurants, and local attractions. If you are a bookworm, check out the Half Price Books just across the highway (it's big!). We visited Palmetto State Park for a day of hiking before heading to the hotel, and the drive... More

Great hotel for easy access to Texas State University. I was there for my son's orientation. Hotel staff was great, check-in was easy. Room was nice and clean. Bed was very comfortable. This is a hotel that I will book next time I'm in San Marcos.

My friends and I went on a road trip the Fourth of July week. We went from place to place. This was our least favorite place that we stayed. It was clean and safe, but nothing special. The breakfast was average and there was no hot tub. It also had a weird smell throughout the hotel.

The stay was excellent, except for having to walk from the lobby to the opposited end of the building to get to my handicap room. I need surgery and can barely wallk. One woulld think the handicap rooms would be closser to the lobby since you cannot enter frough the door at the end of the hall.

The staff was terrific! The room was large (we had 2 beds) and we had plenty of room to spread out. The room was clean and comfortable. It is close to the outlet malls and the university. There was breakfast daily and while we only grabbed muffins, it seemed to be a hit with the folks eating.
