Stayed in the San Marcos Best Western on a family trip. If this had been the first Best Western I/we had visited, it would have been the last! I don't see how it got all of the high ratings. The room was old and has been in need of refurbishing for years. The only request was a non-smoking room - we did not get it. I certainly understand that is not a given, but the smell hit you in the face like a brick. The room was dingy -it was relatively clean, but I found hair in the towels! The noise from the refrigerator fan kept me up every time it kicked on. There was also no elevator. There may be many Best Westerns that do not, but this was another first. I have stayed in probably ten different ones, and they all had elevators. I take the stairs 90% of the time, except when carrying bags and kids, etc. The view out the window was of a brush pile. Mind you, this was probably better than to be facing the interstate, so this is not a gripe. I will not stay at this BW again, but will still at the others I am familiar with. This was really on par with your standard budget motel that is in the $20-40 range. I feel cheated for the quality of the room, although it served the purpose, I suppose. The best part of the place is that the staff were friendly. They did warn me that if I went out the back door, that the reader would probably not let me back in. That exit was like a back alley, by the way. I definitely would not want my family using that exit.
I don't like giving reviews like this, but this place was truly that bad. They are not deserving of one of the best places in San Marcos in its current state.
