Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
I drink hot tea every morning so it was nice that they had that available unlike other hotels think everyone drinks coffee in the morning. I didn’t like that the breakfast cost money. If I’m spending money on breakfast or definitely isn’t going to be on hotel food. In our bathroom in room 115 there was wallpaper coming of the walls due to mold and water damage. They are supposed to change our rate from $125 to $70 per night. They said since we went through Expedia they probably won’t be very prompt in paying us back. We will see.

Disliked: Staff & service
The gentleman who checked us was in was in a bad mood prior to us coming in. We were very friendly and easy going. We did not ask very many questions and had zero special requests. He was short with us and really rude. Not what you would expect coming to such a highly revered branded hotel. I have been using this company for many years when I travel. It was disappointing.

This property was very well kept and definitely felt like a home away from home. The room was very clean and everything worked properly. We will surely love to stay again on any future visits to San Marcos.
