Staff is super friendly, and the rooms are beautiful. My family and I walked along the lake, which was really nice. Toward the evening we hung out in the pool and after we made smores beside the firepit. Our overall stay was a 10. I can't wait to stay again.

imthatguysocal, Thank you for celebrating with us and checking out Decoy. It has to be one of the BEST restaurants in North County, if not the best. Hopefully we have the opportunity to welcome you back again soon!

The only one tiny complaint is that the balcony had all these little flying bugs...but they didn't bite I don't think...just pesty. Not sure the hotel could...

Arrived here without knowing what to expect, i like their welcome/receptionist area interior; very cozy, well lit, cushion sofa, lots of board games, and a big screen TV. It is designed just like in Veranda magazine :D. The hotel room we stayed in is also very nice. I love the lake view and the spacious bedroom. Our room is located...

By the lake san marcos, this is a very nice and quiet hotel to relax for a few days. Rooms a re fairy big and comfortable, they have a nice pool area with several pools and the restaurant is well worth checking out.

The staff was professional and accomodating. Kudos to Leslie, who check us in and gave us great suggestions. Jake at Tape In Tavern explained all our beer options. Hope...

I booked the Lakehouse for the night before my wedding and the night of. My wedding was not at the Lakehouse, but at a local venue near by.

Every single team member-- from the front desk to housekeeping was friendly and courteous. My room was gorgeous and beyond spotless! That's important to me because I'm OCD about germs and dirt.

“I stayed in room #3012. My room has a door that connected to room 3010. Unfortunately whoever was occupying the room had set there alarm for 5 AM sunday morning. Only problem was they let the alarm chirp for 20 minutes. Then it was quiet for 9 minutes & then the alarm chirped again for another 20 minutes. This continued several times. I finally called to front desk at 5.50AM to see if possibly the room was unoccupied & someone had inadvertently left the alarm clock on. Front desk clerk told me the room was occupied & possibly the guest needed to be up early. Very understandable but I really didn't need awake til 8:30 AM or so. After all my family had rented many rooms as well as the Boat house for my nephews wedding the previous night. I certainly could have used as much sleep as possible do to the late night we had just had. Nonetheless I totally understand the resort can not be held accountable for their guest's lack of common courtesy when it comes to alarm clocks. ”
