Rooms was clean, well maintained and although slightly dated we were happily comfortable during our stay. Internet WiFi and TV worked well. Air conditioning kept room comfortable, quiet enough to allow sleep when cycling on and off and was easy to adjust. The bed was adequately comfortable, linens were clean and un-worn. The bathroom was clean and well maintained. Staff...

Nice affordable stay. Beds were very comfortable, rooms were clean. Staff was very polite and helpful. The breakfast was pretty good - waffles, fruit, cereals, eggs (tasted better than they looked) and various breads. Better than some of the other hotels we have stayed with in the area. Would recommend.

We checked in late in the night and the night clerk was very helpful, he helped us carry our bags up to the room since our hands were full and we had a young child with us. It was late and we were all tired. The building has an overall stale smoke smell.. but it's an "older" building so it...

We came here not expecting much but we're surprised to find a nicer hotel than expected. It is older and some of the hallway smells like cigarette smoke which they've been trying to cover up. However the room was very nice, comfortable beds and a clean bathroom. I'd recommend this place for a couple of nights. Our room had a...

We stayed 1st weekend of May. It was comfortable and enjoyed it! Tho, we did have an issue with the first room, but was resolved quickly. The front desk guy took care of it and gave us another room, then proceeded to address issue with first room personally. The staff were friendly and location was centrally located to any preferred...

I got the room at discount price for one night stay with my boyfriend. Staff was polite and it met our basic needs for the night. However, the room (#106 I believe) smelled damp, like wet towels that sat around for too long or something. The room was very clean so we thought running the A/C would ventilate the smell...

No additional review information. Although he proximity to the outlet stores was a big help. Our weekend at the Best Western in San Marcos also gave us a mid point for getting to San Antonio and Austin easily. This area of Texas continues to grow at an alarming rate. Location fantastic. Sleeping was somewhat of a problem but that was...

The staff was very helpful and friendly during check-in and check-out. The parking lot is very tiny and difficult to park. It was extra difficult do to the busy nature of the property. However, with the sports team in the building the staff did a great job.

Had a wonderful stay. Room was comfortable and clean. The front desk staff was very polite. When she saw we were traveling with young children, made sure our room was away from where remodeling was being done but close to where the breakfast was located. Will not hesitate to stay again.
