This, by far is the worst place to stay. It looked good on their website, so, were fooled! The pool of the picture showed a very large pool, but, there are actually bigger pools from walmart! While the staff here is very nice, the constant noise from the restaurant next door, will keep you up most of the night. Also,... More

A dog friendly hotel that fits the common conception about pet friendly rooms- smells like dog, crumbs on the floor, stains & dog hair on the comforter. We fortunately travel with extra sheets/pillows/quilts/cleaning supplies so this room got cleaned up & disinfected during our 3 nights stay. This location is not very family/pet friendly as cops were in the parking... More

I just needed to sleep and the toilet running was constant. The AC made funny noises. The hot water never got hot enough. The sheets didn't quite fit the bed and came off the corners. I ended up going to the store for disinfectant spray.

We booked a nonsmoking room that wreaked of cigarette smoke. The front desk guy offered to change rooms, but from the looks of the place, we figured all rooms would smell the same. The room was clean enough and comfortable enough for the price. We expected to get what we paid for and have to admit it was economical and... More

By all means- come stay at this palace and enjoy the resident crackheads as they wander the parking lot and hallways with abandon. Revel in the disgust that is the stained and pockmarked bed sheets. Enjoy indoor and outdoor living simultaneously as the gap in the door so playfully allows. Stare in wonderment at the front desk help who try... More

Every aspect of our extended stay was terrific. Welcoming, friendly staff, clean comfortable room, few breakfast choices but was fine for us and all at a great price. Front Office staff and the housekeeping staff, if you needed anything they were very accommodating. I would highly recommend this as a must stay.

I brought a team from around the country to work in Wimberley Tx. following the floods that devastated the area... One of the only places that had rooms available to accommodate was the Econo Lodge in neighboring city - San Marcos. We had a total of 4 rooms. One room had feces still in the toilet... and the toilet wouldn't... More
