                    10.0

                    Nice room, budget price, located close to family/friend's residencies.

                    No refrigerator or microwave in room. Pool was not heated adequately. We were not informed of resort fees in advance. (The hotel charged $9.00 per day for Internet, parking, and breakfast.)

                    8.8

                    Location and value.

                    The decor in the room seemed old and unattractive, even though the space Could be very nice with a few updates.

                  • Older travelers
                    8.2

                    THe location and the lakeside view.

                    Could be more updated. Paint on the mirrors.

                    We loved the location. It looks like some remodling may need to be done on the hotel and the free continetal breakfast was also good. Overall we loved our stay and so did our kids. We will go back to Lake San Marcos.

                  • Couple
                    8.8

                    We had a lakefront room that was truly amazing. Once the sun came up the lake animal life awoke inspiring memories of camping out in the wild. Breakfast was good and the hotel was empty. It appears to be supported by the homeowners association that surrounds the place which made it a great value.

                    Lake San Marcos Resort was a quiet hotel situated on a lake.

                    I didn't like that they left their hallway doors wide open at all times. There was no security restrictions to get in the building. They also advertised wi-fi but it was only available in the business office or lobby. There were times I couldn't get wi-fi access even in those areas.

                  • Family with children
                    5.8

                    The location was suitable for our purposes and the price was also within our budget. The cleanliness of our room inside was terrific.

                    As we walked around the resort we noticed a lot of rotting timber work and that gave the resort a shabby feel and the feeling that the owner is not prepared to put money into it.Our room was very old fashioned and very basic. A room renovation would be a great asset as the location especially with the river next to it is great. The verandah needed a really good sweep and clean and with some modern outdoor chairs and table that would be pleasant to sit outside.

                    The pools were nice office staff understanding

                    We were checked into a uncleaned room had to wait out side while they cleaned 430 pm about 80+ after traveling since 4am then they forgot to clean our room every day we were there got back from wedding 11pm needed showers walked in to dirty room no towles we were not happy at all. Arrived back at 5pm to a room not cleaned 2 of desk guys came to clean just was not a good experience. Stood out side again. Did receive 1nite com but I had to ask for some kind of compensation. There was no fruit for breakfast.

                    Location and price

                    Old decor and pool was cold and unkept. Very run down place but cheap. Nice hotel staff and maintenance people

                    We were not satisfied with this resort.

                    We were very dissapointed wirh our room. It was filthy! The bathroom was not clean upon arival and the refrigerator was full of mold!!! Yuck! To top it off they charged us a resort fee of $50.00 at checkout! Rediculous!!!!

                    It was quiet and the view of the lake was very nice. The staff was very helpful.

                    We enjoyed our stay but found the television choices seriously lacking for entertainment such as movies like turner classic movies, etc. It was pretty poor. The toilet hidden behind the door was inconvenient.
