I was in San Marcos for a 4-day weekend visiting Hill Country and the Howard Johnson in San Marcos received very positive reviews and can't be beat in terms of the price given I stayed there for 3 nights.
My room was very clean. No bugs. The A/C was turned off upon arrival but after turning it on, it worked during the rest of my stay. There was a fridge and even an ironing board! Overall for the price I paid I was very happy with the service and hard product I received during my stay. The ceilings are quite low and in the room I stayed in, 203, it rarely got natural light since the window was slim and narrow. But again, for the price I paid I'm fine with it.
The best was the breakfast! They had a Texas-shaped waffle maker that was pretty cool!
