Hampton Inn & Suites San Marcos
Ranked #3 of 33 Hotels in San Marcos
Reviewed August 3, 2013

If you are familiar with the Hampton brand, then there will be no surprises for you at this hotel. It is a generic Hampton Inn, and I do not mean that as a criticism. I want to walk in and know exactly what to expect, and this property meets that requirement. It was nicely appointed, the room was clean, and as a Hilton Honors Diamond member I was given a slight upgrade. So I enjoyed my stay there, and can recommend this property.

My only complaint is the geographical location of the property. I found it difficult to find.

Stayed: June 2013, traveled on business

The Hampton Inn & Suites has a great location in San Marcos. Located midway between Texas State U and the outlet malls.

The room size is extremely generous and ours included a nice size sofa and desk with great lighting.

The hotel staff is extremely friendly and Hilton Honors members get a snack at check-in.

Breakfast is provided and includes eggs, waffles, fruit and more.

Coffee is available 24-7 and a nice touch was fresh baked cookies at check-in.

The lobby is beautiful and a great place to congregate.

The rooms are in need of a redo - furniture, styling and such.

There is a workout room, but it is farily limited in size and type of equipment.

There is a pool, but it is small and does not have a picturesque view....it faces the parking lot.

One of the nicer options in San Marcos.

We booked this room at the last minute. I thought it was a bit expensive, but because it was a Friday night during peak season, I wasn't really that surprised. The place was hard to get to, as it's behind another hotel property. Love Hampton Inn because the sheets are always clean and they have 24 hour hot beverages in the lobby. The breakfast was good- both hot and cold options, but avoid the eggs! We would happily stay there again.

This is a very nice hotel that has been weathered over time by the many who have stayed in this popular location over time. Upgrades would be appropriate. We experienced minor issues with the room received upon check-in not matching what we had paid for (larger room, study), which was ultimately resolved by the hotel staff. Cleanliness of the hotel could be improved in that it was apparent that the carpet had not been vacuumed well in some time. Furniture was a bit tattered and some walls need painting. Overall we have experienced that Hampton is reputable and generally of high quality, but we were not impressed with our stay at this location.

It's good enough for a place to sleep. Only had one problem. Bath tub would not drain and it was not addressed by the hotel. They said it would be fixed when we returned but was not. So we had to shower in a tub full of water. Its not the Four seasons but it is clean and descent. Would stay there again if visited San Marcos, TX again

My family, husband, myself, daughter, son-in-law, & 2 grandchildren (6 & 4) stayed here July 5th & 6th. The rate was good & about 15 minutes from Schlitterbahn. The staff was courteous and proficient. The sheets and duvets were washed daily which was a relief. The free breakfast was good and the kids enjoyed the swimming pool as it was very clean. It wasn't large pool was was nice enough for them to swim in. I would stay again.
