They lie, they want to charge more than agreed and they dont stand by their word. I would never recommend to stay in this hotel to any person, ever. I cant understand how they are in business. One hour thirty minutes to check in. They changed our room in the middle of our stay. They did not stand by their...

This hotel was not welcoming. They were rude in the front desk. We left and went to lucerna way better for the extra money you'll spend you get treated with great hospitality from all there staff. However the bell boy at San Marcos was really nice, the girls in the front desk weren't. Hotel very outdated as well.

The room was incredibly comfortable, amazing comfy bed with tons of pillows. Large bathroom. Great food and restaurant. Loved it! Very quiet, soundproof rooms for real lol. Definitely the best luxury hotel around. I actually have no complaints at all about this place a truly recommend it.

one of the worst hotel i have ever been. Everything is a mass: first room they gave me was not ready and it was 6:30 pm. Second room with more than 30 y. o.. No TV remote control and air conditioner sounds like an airplane. Really bad experience. Never come back again.

This hotel got great reviews but I found it very tacky, noisy, and very bland. The service was excellent, and the breakfast was good. We had a very bad experience with the climate control. It was either VERY cold or VERY hot when we turned the air conditioner off. Worst part is the hotel would not comp me for the...

Well we had a pleasant stay overall. The customer service was very good. The price is decent for the hotel as it is outdated and we stayed in a suite which was small and the pictures looked different. But overall the hotel was used only to sleep because we didn't visit there free buffet as we got up late lol.

San Marcos is a clean, no muss, no fuss hotel. For a small amount I got a clean and comfortable bed, a shower with good shower pressure and big towels. I did not eat at the restaurant or use any of the facilities.

Rooms are okay for the price, the lobby has a cool huge statue of a naked woman and a big painting with a man and women reaching for the heights. There was an issue with the restaurant however. We pre-paid dinners for friends, they charged them again and tried to insist that they never got any money, until finally gave...
