I didn't reserve a room for our trip to San Marcos. That was a mistake. Evidently Bobcat day is a big deal and all of the hotels, motels etc get full. We were very fortunate to get one of the few rooms remaining. The person who checked us in was extremely nice and helpful. The room was average but clean. It was quiet and the free breakfast the next morning was good.
Forced to stay here during the Austin Marathon weekend, and I can promise this will be the last time.
Pros: Had a roof
Cons: Price! (Paid nearly $150 for a room with one King bed. Have paid this at other hotels and did not mind it.) The bathroom vents in the ceiling appeared to have mold, there were hairs and some sort of red stain on the towels when we first entered the room, the door locks didn't work, there were multiple stains on the carpet in the room, thin walls, the room had a terrible stench to it (mostly cigarette smoke and some other indiscernible funk,) and to top it all off, the front desk staff was rude.
All in all, this hotel has made sure I will not take my chances with any La Quinta Inns for my future travel needs.
We are snow birds who summer in Canada and winter in Texas. We use LaQuinta hotels as our hotel of choice during our twice annual migration. We have regularly stayed at the LaQuinta in San Marcos for 8 years as the hotel is always clean and provides great service. At this visit we had 2 rooms as my son and family were with us. After checkout, we realized my grandson had left a teddy bear in the room and the service provided by Olga to locate lost bear above and beyond and was over the top.
We recommend this hotel and will continue to use it ourselves.
I can't believe La Quinta is claiming this hotel. It is old,out dated,the rooms are small. The shower had no hot water,just air. The heater ran all night even with the temperature set at 65. The walls were thin so you could hear everything going on in the hall or in the other rooms. The breakfast was cold. The area was crowded and messy. The muffins were stale.
Went for a college visit to Texas State with my daughter and another family. Nice clean rooms with comfortable beds. Trouble was in bathroom, shower head sprayed water in all directions. Our friends said that water from their sink faucet had black particles floating in it but went away eventually. We did not have this issue. No smell either. The breakfast was adequate.It would have been nice if lawn guys were not blowing leaves at 7:15am. worth the price, They really need to update bathrooms. I would stay here again.
