Having stayed at a few Red Roof Inns, I took a chance and did not preview the room. Initially, the lobby and hallways looked acceptable, as well as the room. There had been Some updating in the room. We were hungry and it was late, so we walked to the Nearby Mexican fast food restaurants which was fantastic. Upon returning...

I can see why this place was the only one with availability. It's pretty gross. For $120 a night there should be sheets and blankets that don't have stains and cigarette burn holes in them! The shower has no edging on it to keep the water in and the water floods the entire bathroom floor~ had to put towels down...

Every other hotel in San Marcos was booked except for this one.....now I know why. Walked into the room and was greeted by the most unpleasant scent ever ( got better with the window open). Carpet might have been the source of the smell. Blankets were stained. Bathroom tiles were cracked and grout was disturbingly gross. Shower head moved all...

Good room rates, very clean room. Comfy bed. The staff was very friendly. It is a great location for our annual tubing trips with all of our friends. We had a total of seven rooms between us all and everyone was happy. The breakfast is not a "hot meal" breakfast, but it isnt advertised as such either. We usually eat...

Yes, you get what you pay for! I booked this room thru Priceline and read the reviews (which were mixed). Our room was upstairs with no elevator. I could live with that. But these are things that really concerned me: HORRIBLE odor in the room, old electrical plugs, no fire alarm and thin walls! We turned the A/C down which...

All hotels on the I-35 strip between Austin and San Antonio are over priced due to the attractions in the area. With that said the Red Roof Inn was an older property with not many amenities, very sparse breakfast, cereal and pastry. It is what I expected for the price. It was clean, the bed was comfortable and the manager...
