Stayed in this San Marcos Hampton because of the excellent price. It was located conveniently between our two destinations ... Carlsbad and Temecula ... for Easter weekend. Everything rooms, comfortable beds, and complimentary breakfast was typical of the Hampton brand. Only negative was the paper thin walls and listening to the shower late at night and the door slamming in the morning.

I am so excited to write this review with all of the negativity surrounding the world with a pandemic scare. It's good to know there are still good things happening. The folks at the Hampton Inn San Marcos are a class act. From Kerstin and Amanda at the front desk and John working midnights and David managing the crew from behind the seems. I would like to thank all of you not just the previously mentioned. The thanks comes from my entire crew. Better yet all the crews that my company has booked over the last year or so. We work on Advanced Infrastructure Analytics and Monitoring. It's important that me and my colleagues have a comfortable clean place to stay because long days require good rest. We also need a place that we can trust our vehicles and equipment is safe. This is important because with no equipment there is no there is also no work. This Hampton has all of that. We've had about a dozen crews for 3 - 9 individuals that range from technician assistant to electromagnetic engineers and we keep on coming back because it's got what we need and the people doing it at great at what they do. From me and my crews, Thank you

I enjoyed my stay here. I was hoping for a better fitness center and the pool and hot tub were down for renovations so I was not able to use those facilities. The breakfast was good and the staff were very helpful.
