Reviewed 25 April 2016

We enjoyed this place. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. The Wi-Fi worked well and all the features of the room were in good working order. If you are looking for a clean and fitting place to stay overnight it is well kept by hotel management at a very reasonable rate.

this was a last minute decision to stay here while planning a weekend getaway for our anniversary. The hotel is easy on & off from the freeway. Room was clean and quiet. The desk clerk was VERY helpful in answering our questions and very friendly to speak with. It's always nice to enjoy speaking with strangers and having good casual...

This was our first stay at this hotel and it was very nice. One of the nicer Best Westerns we have stayed in. Room was spacious, clean, quiet, breakfast was adequate, and staff was helpful and pleasant. All in all a good 3 night stay. We will return.

Great location, pretty close to restaurants that I was able to walk to. Quiet area and the staff was friendly. Too bad the pool was to cold to get into, but I still enjoyed it. Breakfast options was also good, different ideas to choose from each day.

We stayed here for 2 nights, Sat & Sun. Upon arrival, the front desk was very welcoming & friendly. We never had any issues. Breakfast was very good. On our first morning, I found an item that was left by a previous guest. I gave it to the front desk. Maybe it belongs to the Michael who gave this hotel...

When you tell someone a rate and then charge them a higher rate...get it writing from this place. We were given a special rate because I booked so many rooms for my family to be here for my wedding. Other than that, don't forget anything. You won't get it back. :( We lost a few things that can easily be...

Best Western in San Marcos is terrific, a very small and home like hotel where you have a very helpful and caring staff, and great convenience to I-35. It was a great place for my visits to Austin and San Antonio, which I commuted between. It was my first time booking with best western, and will not be my last....
