Parking ok but not numbered so first come first serve and you may be parking a distance from your room.
Access average but can be annoying when returning from the town
Rooms clean and well maintained
Bathrooms dated but ok
Breakfast don't even bother.
Overall a average budget hotel
First let me state my disclaimer: I did not end up staying here and I got the entire amount refunded since I had paid in advance. This review is just about my experience arriving and attempting to check in. After driving for two days, I arrived ready to settle in and enjoy a visit with my daughter who attends Texas State. I was informed at the desk that my no-smoking request was only a "preference" and could not be honored: I had to have a smoking room. I almost left then, but decided to at least check the room out and see how bad the smoke smell was. As I went to the room, I noted that they were outside entry rooms, something that I like to avoid for safety and was not clear from the website. I put the key in and opened the door and was immediately jolted to find a sleeping woman in bed under the covers. I let out a surprised "OH"! but she did not stir. I backed out quickly and told the front desk about it. They did not seem too concerned and gave me no option except to wait until they could kick her out and clean the room. I did not want that. I had booked through hotels.com and was able to get my money back and ended up staying with my daughter and her roommates.
We stayed here for two nights and the hotel was old and not clean. The carpets were stained, the doors in our room were dirty, the bathroom floors had not been cleaned in ages. The counters and toilet were not clean. The beds were clean but overall I would never stay here again. The breakfast was ok and there was coffee 24/7, the staff was nice and that is the only reason I gave it a 2.
We had a very nice week at the San Marcos, Texas La Quinta. The weather was humid and steamy. The room was cool and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had a good visit. Our room was close to family and shopping.
Clean motel but the rate was a little high for the room. Also there is an old section and new, website does not make that clear and you don't know which section you are in. The website also stated the room would have a fridge and microwave, we did not have either in our room. Maybe the new section has it in the rooms.
