"Comfy spot near Texas State University"
A comfy place to stay. We needed a room for 2 nights close to Texas State University for a December graduation. The inn was visible from the highway with lots of restaurants and stores nearby. You could tell the inn has a long history in San Marcos, but the rooms were clean, the furniture was new, and we had a microwave and mini-fridge. Some of the outlets did not work and the hair dryer in our room was broken, but the shower was great and the beds were absolutely comfortable for a good night's sleep and that's what matters in the end.

"Rodeway Inn Stay"
I stayed in the hotel during a slow night (Sunday). It was simple and clean. It was just one of those hotels with old stuff inside the room. It was really good for what I paid for though. So, I paid around $50 and it was in fair condition for what I was looking for.

I don't really go and stay at hotels very much but what I liked about this hotel was the room was well furnished with not only a bed but a sofa.I thought that was good cause people don't always want to just sit on the bed.

"Things not working"
The room that we got, the AC was not working and was missing the temperature knob. Most lamps were not working, and there was no tv control.; TV was outdated.The phone was not working, so I had to go to the office to change my room. I was suppose to get a non-smoking room when I moved and had a strong odor of smoke; it was a non-smoking room, but did not smell like it. The pillows were too soft along with the bed.

It was not a good experience, the hotel lacks a lot of maintenance and facilities are very old, have no security and parking there an open area where people rarely appears at night seems to be reviewing the hotel. The dining area is very small and there is clean, honestly I did not trust the kind of food that there can give. The rooms if they are clean, but I insist that are very old facilities. towels are very small and hurt the skin when people dry them. In general, the area where it is located is commercial. but does not look very safe

This was the worst hotel stay that I have ever had. Rooms are nothing like the pictures, we had no hot water during our stay. Continental breakfast were packaged cinnamon rolls and that is about it. Staff was rude and not helpful at all.

"Recommend for Last Resort ONLY!!!"
Bad fluorescent lighting in lobby and entrance; TV was very old, and remote hardly worked; air conditioner could barely maintain 80 degrees; towels provided for 2 people, when reservation was for 4--when asked for more towels, I was given the swimming-pool towels with the big blue stripe; hair dryer would not stay on its base; phone didn't work due to the handset cord was frayed--called lobby for a replacement (from cell phone), I was given 2 SLIMY, NASTY used cords; not much attention paid to aesthetics such as: internet wires dangled from roof-top to lobby, lightbulbs out in the courtyard and breezeways, etc; the breakfast consisted of cereal and milk, because the coffee was almost SOLID, the juice machines were out of order, the 1 table in the "dining room/lobby/foyer" was filthy.

"Do not stay here!"
This hotel is horrible! Do not stay here, even if it is your last option. Our rooms had outlets that did not work, smelled like a cat urinated everywhere, and you can hear EVERY activity that is happening in another room. The breakfast, if you can call it that, was coffee (no decaf option), orange or apple juice, cold cereal, and an option of red flavored danish and white flavored danish. Do not bother wasting your money here!

"RODEWAY INN SAN MARCOS."
I do not recommend this place to anyone. The check in lady was rude. Walked to our room and it looked as if some one was still there. Both beds not made and very dirty. We moved to another room, and there was no cold water. After speaking to the manager, he insisted on us using the next doors shower (which had been check out minutes before us realizing there was no cold water.) So he pretty much wanted us to shower in someone else filth. We went to check out, and we explained our discomforts to reception and all she said was "ok, you're good to go." DO NOT SAY HERE. WHAT A WASTE OF $80!!!!!

"Comfort and Low Cost"
This hotel is in the process of complete revitalization. Our rooms were updated, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was skimpy, and so we went out every morning for breakfast. The hotel staff was very helpful and considerate. There is a bit of a hassle getting in and out of the parking lot, as it is a very busy intersection. We figured it out and had no trouble. It is close to everything you could possibly be interested in.

"Kinda Creepy"
My daughters and I were given our room card to check in. Inserted the card and opened the door of an occupied room, needless to say, we left quickly. Back at the office I was told there was no one in that room, even though it was very obvious that someone was. Once we got to a room that wasn't occupied, the door had to have an adults full body weight thrown into it to make it close. Needless to say, after the episode of walking into someone else's room, we made sure every lock was thrown every second we were inside.

"I was pleasantly surprised!"
I went to town mainly for a football game and to revisit my ol' alma mater and I must say that the Rodeway Inn met my needs for a one-night stay and I can't complain. When I exited off of I-35 I realized that it was not where I had a satisfying stay before, at The Travelodge, so I didn't know what to expect, but I must say that the stays were comparable. Check-in was reasonable considering that the attendant was busy on a game-day, but she handling matters within a timely manner. The Rodeway Inn met my expectations and was for me within a reasonable walking distance to Bobcat Stadium. The room and its contents were reasonably satisfactory, including two comfortable clean beds and an adequately cleaned bathroom, and overall the room was reasonably priced. Located right off I-35 and Aquarena Springs Drive among respectable surroundings. Check-out was a breeze. Personally, for this jaded gent traveling alone, I'd stay there again.

"Very unhappy with Rodeway"
We were not happy with Rodeway. The staff at check in seemed unhappy to be there. The room, though clean, was most disappointing. The microwave was in the floor. The TV was one that most people have long ago thrown out. The remote would not allow channel selection without going thru all channels. Had to hunt for an outlet to plug in the clock. The ice machine was broken. The door to the room did not close properly. The sheets looked like they had been left in the dryer over night. The water in the sink ran at a trickle. The breakfast area had one table and the food did not look inviting - not much selection. Only one type of cereal. We left and ate elsewhere. We will not be staying at Rodeway again.

We were in town for 7 days---our first time in the area. The first room we stayed in had bugs. They gave us another room in the back. Each night there were many questionable people in the parking lot. One night we observed some scary activity in the parking lot. My wife was very scarred. It was hard to sleep that night. When we checked in the management said; they patrolled the back---that was definitely not true---we never saw any security. We wanted to change hotels, but our schedule made that difficult. We decided to stay alert and finish the week. The first day I went to get breakfast---it was 1 minute past the end---the man at the front desk refused to turn on the orange juice machine---he finallly reluctantly let me have one glass of orange juice. Very sketchey hotel---very sketchy neighborhood. When I booked the room the reviews all said GOOD!---so much for reviews. There was one lady at the front desk that was very understanding, kind and helpful. The room cleaning staff was very nice and accomodating. We stay in hotels frequently in the summer. I know how hard it is to run a business, but they could do much better.

Very friendly staff, I forgot to tell them to put my rooms next to each other so when I got there they were really far apart but the nice young man up front tried his best to get us as close as possible. It wasn't anything fancy but for the price what else could anyone expect. Breakfast choices were not so great. I would stay here again, gave me extra spending money.

"Go somewhere else for the price"
The room was very disappointing. They have a refrigerator but it was never really cold. There is a microwave in the room but the cord was to short to reach the plug so in order to use it I had to move it to the bathroom counter and plug it in. The sheets could use a bleach job. The door to the room was not on the hinges right so when you closed the door the entire glass in the front shook. I was afraid we were going to wake the people next to us. No coffee pot in the room so in the morning I had to go wait in the lobby for them to make coffee. I have stayed at Rodeway Inns before but I will not be back to this one. I will pay extra if I have to in order to get a better room.
