It’s HOT outside….turn on the A/C for your incoming guest. We couldn’t even use our room for hours because it was unbearably HOT! It took a good 12 hours for it to come down to temperature! The toilet stayed clogged, and there are too many people on the sidewalks and parking lot especially at night. The groups of guys are grilling and drinking til past 11pm. People that didn’t have reservations came into the building to eat at breakfast time. Definitely not a family place.

The lock on the door was broken. It’s a smoke free building with a smoke smelling room. I don’t feel safe

Nice but NOISY
NOISY doors open to outside, by major highway. This is an older hotel that has been recently refurbished. Beds are comfortable. Staff is very nice and prompt to help with extra towels (thought they were thin and rough). Breakfast was limited but ok - breads, yogurt, eggs, sausage, cereal. front door area is glassed in with a security window for late-night check-in. The lobby has the front desk glassed in. That is probably for COVID, but it gives the impression that this is not a safe neighborhood. Overall, the hotel is fine, great even in some areas, but ... We did NOT sleep well. The highway noise including several sirens, the bathroom door creaks, the AC rattles, the door slams from neighbors, all made it hard to sleep. Too bad because this hotel is clearly trying hard.

The room itself was not clean, we went to the store and got stuff to clean it ourselves. Hair all over the shower walls, yellow soap scum residue in the soap dish, tub did not drain. Toilet was gross. Chairs and trash in the pool, that we removed ourselves. Next day they came and our towels, but after 4 hours I had to go and ask for fresh towels. Then I get home only to find extra charges on my bank account from the hotel that nobody had made me aware of in advance.

It was what I expected from the reviews. The hotel is unassumming, but it us clean and pleasant. The rooms are a good size, and the bed was comfortable. It's in a good location to get to where you want to go in San Marcos. They do a $50 depot on arrival, and say it will be returned after checkout. I'm hoping to see it back in my bank soon!

The front desk service was good and friendly. The room was fairly clean. The toilet paper dispenser was hanging out of the wall. The A/C could not keep up and we slept very warm. The A/C unit ran water into the room and we had to place a towel under it. Overall, it met our needs but most likely we will not stay there again.
