“It's a whole new Roof”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2010

Excellent value for the buck. At a fair price you enjoy a very clean and newly reworked Red Roof Inn. This is not the Hilton.You are given a very nice place to stay. If you need computers, wifi, or what ever tweeks your whistle; go some place else. If you want a nice safe place to stop for or several days. This is it . They offer a continental breakfast , so be happy and enjoy.

I called the hotel personally to make the reservation and requested a crib and was assured I would be able to get one. Upon arriving I was told there was told all the cribs were broken. Therefore I had to make a makeshift crib in one of the beds with the chairs and pillows. NOT SAFE!!! My 16 month old baby found a 10 mg. Valium in the floor which could have been deadly for him. The room was so dirty that I wouldn't even allow him to crawl around after that. I would definitely not recommend this hotel to anyone. You could probably pick up a disease. We have stayed in Red Roof Inns a lot, but this one is terrible. We will never stay here again!!!

If you like stinky and filthy surroundings this is your place. Bathroom was filhy, shower curtain had mold growing on it floor was sticky, carpet smelled like someone had urinated on it, beds and bedding dirty. For what they are charging $80/night you would be better off staying in your car.

M first room was dirty & I asked for a new room. my second room was dirty still but decided just to deal with it. The carpet needed cleaning, there was trash in the corners, already used shampoo packaging in the bathtub & preused toliet paper in the restroom. I would never come back here again...& I'd probably tell other people to never go here.

We've stayed here several times and have always had a good experience. The rooms are up-to-date and always clean. We also like that the rooms are indoor access. Parking can be a little tight when the hotel is full, but it's worked out for us every time.

Room was not fully cleaned. empty water bottle on the floor. front desk very nice! Halls were loud with kids till 3AM. Found out that there were multiple complaints, but nothing done about it. will not stay again. stayed for $85 in Kerrville Texas for the previous two nights at a resort. very clean and completely remodeled. (Inn on The Hills) I highly recommend.

If you read the descriptions of any & all the hotel booking websites you will see that Red Rood Inn offers free high speed internet IN THE ROOMS at this San Marcos location. In fact, you computer will detect a wireless network at this hotel but there is no signal strong enough to connect. I complained to the staff & they said that everyone complains but that the new owners won't make any repairs to this aging hotel. Wireless internet is VERY important to me as a business traveler. If you don't need wireless internet then as long as you can stand dirty bathrooms you may want to stay here...otherwise stay away from this one. My usual hotel when I come to San Marcos is La Quinta. I wish that I was able to book LQ this time but they were all booked. I highly recommend La Quinta for business travelers & families too.

  • Liked — Close to outlet mall.
  • Disliked — No internet in rooms even though it is advertised.
