Attended a wedding in Wimberlie and needed a place for that night. This hotel is within 25 miles but is near highways to the location that make it convenient. The place was clean, near the highway (could hear highway noise, but acceptable) and had an acceptable breakfast. Staff were exceptionally good.

Friendly, helpful staff, clean room and bathroom. Lobby is nice but a little crowded. The fold down seat in the "accessible" room was too far from the water controls and the grab bars were hard to reach. It is hard to step into the tub for someone who is impaired.

Very clean, very comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent.. We enjoyed eggs, potatoes with veggies, and the good coffee. I was surprised to find that San Marcos has become a somewhat suburb of Austin, as there was a big football game at UT that weekend, and the hotel was completely sold out.

The hotel is older but well kept and clean. Layout a little different (parking in front as the hotel backs up to a fence). Staff was friendly and responsive. The breakfast was typical fare but fresh and plentiful. I would stay there again when in the area.

We booked two rooms for business for a week and was unable to sleep due the bed bugs or fleas when we spoke with the manager he didn't offer any solution and denied they have bugs even after we produce them still nothing so we checked out and he would not refund our money for the remaining nights after speaking...

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.
