My family stayed here in July 2012, I did like hotel services, wonderful helpful staff. Our room was cold and we will be staying here again. Location was close to everything we had to go for vacation, malls

On a long motorcycle ride to the coast, and this was as far as we got before it got dark, so we pulled in for some z's and grub. There is a restaurant right next to it with a "sports bar" atmosphere and a great bar. The pool was cold for May, but you get what you pay for. There... More

We stayed at the Econo Lodge in San Marcos, TX this November on a family vacation and let me tell you we were pleasantly surprised. Clean & comfortable. Staff was very friendly. Continental breakfast was adequate with juice, coffee and pastries. Affordable rates. Very nice for the price! We had a great night sleep and next day enjoyed the day... More

The place looks great...from the outside. The pool was filthy, I had to clean it myself. The room was ok except for the bugs. There were flies and mosquitoes in the room. The so called breakfast was cold pastries and the worst juice/coffee we have ever had. They let the people that just checked in stay at the pool well... More

I booked online and was quoted a certain price. When we arrived, the clerk insisted the price was higher than that and that we already got a ten dollar discount. For a $115.00 this is the worst hotel room I have ever stayed in. (It was more like a fifty dollar deal). The furniture was broken; the carpet was dirty;... More

We had 3 families booked this motel and they arranged connected rooms for us. Rooms are clean and quiet. Breakfast was fine with the money we spent on this motel. We will come back next time for short trip.

I don't know if it's the food establishments in the surrounding vicinity or something about this motel itself, but the premises has a pervasive smell of frying grease. Offensive to the senses! The motel isn't too bad, actually--reasonably clean room with tasteful decor, fridge and microwave, pretty good wifi connection, large number of TV channels. The bedding is old though,... More

This was easily the worst place that my wife and I have stayed. The location is handy right off of Hwy 35. There is a noisy bar right next door that you can hear in many of the rooms. The young man that checked us in had his headphones on when we walked in. I think he turned off his... More
