"If this is the #7 hotel, how bad are the others in San Marcos?"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 16, 2014
Jackie D | Dallas, Texas
I am no hotel snob, but this dirty, no frills place is not worth the money. With my discount the room total was $92. I would say the value for this place would be around $50. It has a definite motel feel, and dirty carpets and walls in the common areas of the adjacent building. The bed was comfortable, the room was large, and the internet was good. That's all for perks. Our toilet was dirty, as well as the bathtub. I was so glad not to have a small child needing a bath... The shampoo bottle was half empty, meaning it was left over and left out for us by housekeeping. Yuck. To top it off, a huge cockroach was hanging out on the AC unit when we woke up in the morning. We went for breakfast, and it was the saddest I've seen at a LaQuinta. We just opted to get out of dodge. I was happy that after voicing my issues with the company, and showing them pictures of our dirty bathroom and roach friend, my stay was refunded. I don't feel this property represents their brand very well.

"Stay in Corpus Christi"

I booked two rooms for my family for Easter weekend. We stay at La Quinta because they are pet friendly. The rooms were great. The breakfast was very good and the location was close to Kingsville, Tx where my family lives. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone that needs a pet friendly place.

"Just an okay stay"
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 14, 2014
Freda C | Cedar Hill, United States
The stay was just okay. The the check in and check out was speedy. They did allow be to check in early. I was very grateful for that. I was disappointed my room did not have a refrigerator and a microwave. The quality of this motel style hotel was about the same as he Travel Lodge next door. I booked a room at the Travel Lodge and the LaQuinta but paid $87 more for the LaQuinta that did not have a refrigerator or a microwave expecting better quality. I pretty disappointed in my stay because I have had better experiences with LaQuinta.

"Good place to stay in San Marcos"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 2, 2014

We have not had good experiences with other motels in San Marcos, so we were pleasantly surprised by this La Quinta. It is a good, but not great, basic motel. It was clean, the bed was comfortable, the internet was good, TV did have limited channels but was OK, the staff was friendly. The breakfast was pretty basic, but everything was fresh and well stocked. We had a little trouble getting to it; our GPS did not seem to recognize that the access road was one-way. We will probably stay here again since we have had such bad luck with other places in San Marcos.

"Pay Attention"

Pay attention to the details on the LQ site: bathroom has no door, it's a motel, not a hotel (we're accustomed to the newer LQs, breakfast is VERY basic, etc. Clean, comfortable, Trevor and staff were good; place is a bit seedy, lot of folks sitting on tailgates drinking beer, bit loud late at night, part of the fence is down separating the LQ from an apt complex-made you worry about your vehicle....VERY close to TX State and there's not a whole lot of great choices in San Marcos-have to drive to Austin.
