A relatively new La Quinta but very disappointing. Room was clean but heater didn't work, coffee maker but no coffee/ additions were in room. One small soap, no shampoo, shower cap, etc. Breakfast room tables were all filthy, offerings were minimal and unappetizing; no water, juice, English muffins, bananas, Half & Half, etc. Had to go to a local breakfast...

Thank you Charlene939 for your review from our hotel. As explained to you when you answered our survey our breakfast items are listed on our website what is served. You were asking for items no La Quinta serves such as English muffins. We offer a continental breakfast and we did have everything listed on our website during your stay. As...

The room was clean and the goose down pillows incredibly comfortable! I'm even searching for them online right now in order to have that pampered feeling again at home. They could easily sell those amazing pillows to guests at the hotel. The location is convenient to both Austin and San Antonio which was perfect. The staff was extremely professional and...

We stayed at this hotel both going and coming back from our trip to the valley. Will stay here again. I left something in the room and when it was cleaned the item was turned into the front desk and I was called and they held it for me until I returned a few days later.

The Laquinta in San Marcos is easy access off the highway as you come into San Marcos from the North. If you have to return to your hotel it is a little tricky to get back because of the one way access road and you have to figure that part out. The rooms are very clean, the front desk staff...

This is nothing like a LaQuinta Inn and Suites I have ever stayed at. It was more like a Hotel 3. The rooms were old and smelled like a high school football locker room and looked worse. The three rooms we had all were accessed from the outside and were neither suite or inn quality. Pictures of the hotel showed...

This LQ is the old motel style..doors open to the outside. It is a no frills place, but it is clean and well maintained. The wi-fi was fast, the pillows were fluffy (not lumpy at all) and the tv was clear. The stairs to the second level were steep and the treads uneven.

This hotel is nice on the inside, as they recently remodeled it. However, the walls are very thin, so you can hear everything inside and out, including endless traffic on the highway. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly enough. Free wifi and breakfast almost made up for the noise.

Rabowlen, Thank you so much for your kind comments about our staff and our clean hotel. I was disappointed to hear that you felt the hotel was loud due to the walls. I am also sorry that the traffic construction was a bother. We can always offer to put you in a room further from the highway so that the...

They said this hotel had been recently renovated -- well, you could've fooled me. Not only was the check-in process horrendous, but I didn't receive maid service during one of the days of my stay, the room key didn't work each day of my stay and the bed was extremely uncomfortable.

The La Quinta in San Marcos is a nice hotel, it has easy access to San Marcos, Austin, Lockhart and the surrounding attractions. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The breakfast was the typical free breakfast, limited choice, and self service.

I usually stay at La Quinta hotels when traveling. I booked this hotel in San Marcos for a shopping trip with my family. The price was surprisingly high ($189/night), but after reading that is was newly renovated, I booked the room. When I arrived, the front desk area was clean and staff was cordial. I received my room key and...
