First Impression made me kind of leery
Posted Jul 22, 2016
After enjoying our 3-night stay at the Hampton Inn New Braunfels, I began to question my decision to use Hampton Inn San Marcos as soon as we approached the facility. Even though there were other motels and plenty of restaurants nearby, the area in which it was located had a warehouse feel to it. Our window overlooked a UPS truck facility. Once inside, the atmosphere just "felt" old. Although the decor was similar to the HI-NB, it was much more worn. The purple carpet is horrible. Although it looked clean--I felt I had to wipe everything down with disinfecting wipes. But, truthfully, never found anything to be dirty, but made sure to wear shoes at all times except when showering. One of the first things I did when I walked into our room was straighten up the lampshades. Almost all of them were crooked. Just looked sloppy. Too much noise could be heard from rooms next door. Did not have this problem at HI-NV. Beds were well made, comfortable, and a/c worked just fine. Breakfast was pretty good. Lots of choices. Glad we only stayed one night.
