Clean, modern room. Nice amenities, good breakfast. The location was right on the service road facing the highway, easy access but far from scenic.

The staff was friendly but the hotel needs an overhaul. No elevator and the bed spreads were filthy.

Weekend bike ride in the Texas Hill Country.

Was a spur of the moment trip to enjoy some motorcycle riding through the Hill Country. I chose San Marcos because there is some beautiful riding roads through Wimberley, Dripping Springs, Johnson City, Marble Falls then 1431 over to Cedar Park. Must stop at: Pedernales Falls State Park 2585 Park Road 6026 Johnson City, TX 78636 Sunday we rode to New Braunfels for a quick ride down River Road. Great weekend of quality time in the wind with the woman I love.

This hotel for my family was not what we like.

This hotel was not as clean as I like. The decor was very dated. The owner lives on the property in one of the units. They must cook ethnic food in their unit because the entire place smelled of curry spice. I could smell it in our room. It was a gross smell to me. Maybe some people like it. The carpet looked worn, old, and stained int he room. I wore my flip flops the entire time. I would not go back.

Clean and Convenient

We frequently visit San Marcos, but only for the weekend, so our needs are few. We have stayed in other hotels, but in our experience this was the best one for the price. The room was clean, most importantly so was the bathroom, and the beds were comfortable. My only negative comment is that the hotel does not have an elevator for guests' use, which would be inconvenient for some guests. Other than that I am sure we will stay there again.

Finally enough pillows

It was clean. It was nice for a change to actually have enough pillows. 3 per bed. Needs a little updating on decor. My mother-in-law kept saying how wild the carpet was. I just told her not to look down. Nice staff at the desk, really did not have much dealing with them. We just stayed one night, got in late and left early. Did not try the breakfast. Did not care for the trash pick-up at 730 in the morning, but that is the way it is sometimes. The heater in the room did a good job. Our room needed a new TV remote, volume did not work, no time to tell the staff. Don't waste your time on the coffee in the room, yuk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Right off the freeway and easy to get to, really did not hear the traffic and we were on the freeway side.

Enjoyed our stay !

February 2009 Stayed 3 nights /4 days We were pleased with our stay at the Best Western Hotel. The staff were all very friendlly and more than helpful. The hotel itself appears too have been recently remodled. It is very clean and nice looking. Continental Breakfast had fruit and muffins and pastries along with cereal and waffles. The lobby had a computer for guest use that worked well for printing our plane tickets. The location is easy to find, just off the I 35 expressway, and with in blocks of the ""downtown"" San Marcos, The pool was closed for upgrading at the time of our visit, but it was winter and not swim weather anyway. We would stay here again if we ever get back down to Texas !
