"The hotel was OK for the most part. The hallway carpet and elevator had an unpleasant odor, but the room was good and the beds were nice and comfortable. Pleasant, helpful employees. I recommend staying here.2017-05-16"
"The room was comfortable. We stayed 2 nights with no problems. The hotel clerks were nice and accommodating. Breakfast was a little below park; the toaster didn't work, and there was no microwave to warm the cold pastries. The eggs and sausage were good.2017-04-08"
"The sofa bed in my hotel room had used linens and old underclothes in it.2016-08-20"
"Easy access to the interstate and convenient to San Marcos and New Braunfels. Good, clean, appealing hotel. The employees were courteous, but the front desk seemed short-staffed. The kids liked the indoor pool. No restaurants or entertainment within walking distance, but it was a short drive to plenty of spots.2015-11-17"
"I was put in a smoking room, and since the staff wouldn't accommodate my request for another room, I left and went to another hotel.2015-08-07"
"I loved that the hotel gave me a shopping bag and told me how to receive coupons at the outlet mall. Also appreciated the free adult beverages from 5-7:30 PM. I checked in at 7:20, and the staff encouraged me to leave my car and have a drink before happy hour ended. They were super friendly. I recommend this hotel.2015-06-28"
"Clean hotel with good customer service.2019-10-09"
"The hotel was a little hard to find since it was behind another property, but it was clean and comfortable and the price was right. In-room drinks and snacks were pricey. No pastries at the breakfast bar. Good place to stay.2016-06-26"
"This motel should be shut down. There was blood on the bedsheets, holes in the carpet, and missing cabinet drawers. The TV wasn't even connected to the cable, and the lamps didn't have lightbulbs in them. No safety latch on the door. The shower curtain was dirty. Don't stay here.2019-11-16"
"Near San Marcos Outlet Mall - good, clean hotel - we'd stay again.2012-07-01"
"Good hotel. I've stayed here multiple times and will stay here again. Stay here.2019-03-15"
"The rates were too high. The stench in the hallway was unbearable. The checkout clerk was too busy eating the complimentary breakfast to notice me; when she finally did, her mouth was full of food. It was completely unprofessional. This hotel stay was a disappointment.2016-03-08"
"Nice hotel, but the only room available was a smoking room. It was hard to sleep because of the smell. I did like the note on the headboard about the fresh bedding.2016-02-15"
"Convenient to stores and restaurants, and right off the interstate. Clean room with pleasing decor and a comfortable bed. We were given a handicap room, and the walk-in shower with a portable bench was a great feature. The lobby and dining area were spotless and inviting. The motel staff was helpful and courteous. The breakfast area was kept clean and stocked, but the offerings were typical and there were no eggs. Great place to stay.2019-11-19"
"The motel was repairing damage from recent floods during my stay. The front desk clerk told me that if there was tape over my room door, I should just pull it off. I could smell mildew and mold, and heard construction noise and workmen shouting to each other from 7 AM until 10 PM. Not a pleasant stay.2015-06-07"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
