We only stayed briefly. Got in late in the evening after our wedding and left around check in time. I asked the front desk if I could check in at 2:00 as I was getting married that day and wanted to put some stuff in the room before I went back to my wedding venue. Unfortunately I was told that they wouldn't have rooms ready until 4pm. However, when we did check in around 11:30pm, we had a bottle of champagne and a congratulatory note waiting for us! That made us feel special for recognizing our day! The room was very nice and stylish, we had a lake view room. We didn't get to see much of the hotel or use the pool. But we enjoyed the hotel enough that we hope to have a weekend staycation sometime in the future.

We were in the area for two graduations and the Lakehouse was the closest and nicest place to stay. The weather was gloomy, foggy the whole 3 days, but that was fine for the outdoor graduation ceremonies. We played the executive golf course one day, and had room service as well as eating at the main golf club. The food was disappointing, but the hotel was quite nice.

We had a wonderful time at the Lakehouse Resort on Lake San Marcos. The hotel is in excellent condition including the pool, hot tub and fire pit areas. We had an upstairs poolside room that still allowed us to have a nice view of the lake. The Grill restaurant at the golf course was fantastic. Not much to look at, but the chef makes up for the older interior of the restaurant with great food. This is also where room service comes from at this time. I highly recommend the Lakehouse for couples and families.

i booked this hotel for a getaway weekend and the only complaint I have is finding the hotel. There's no direct access from the main road San Marcos and the streets leading to the hotel go in a complete circle. All of the streets inter twin so it took us awhile. It's confusing because you have to go thru a residential area but once we found it it was great. They should have more signs to lead you thru

Firstly, the exterior of the hotel, which appears drab, does no justice to the interior. The rooms are spacious and beautiful, for the price it is a steal. We also had a room with a view of the lake. This is an amazing hotel for the price and would book again in the future. The hotel also has a small dock that offers boats, paddle boats, and kayak rentals, which we did try out in the morning. The lake itself isn't all too interesting, it's small and most of the nearby lakeside are made up of residential backyards. I would say that an hour of kayaking in it is about 20 minutes too long.

Great getaway for a couples retreat! Honestly though, the resort is on the high end for someone on the budget. It's a great place and amazing facility, but the rates are pretty high since the location is in San Marcos. With that rate you can stay at much better location. Furthermore, the resort itself was fantastic! Front desk staff was phenomenal ... I guess service is what makes one heck of an experience. Front desk staff ... YOU GUYS ROCK!

We have stayed here many, many times while visiting family in the area. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom is nice, but each and every time we stay, something is always a little bit off. Incidents include: the hot tub was not functioning, the heater did not work, the TV was not connected, the hot and cold water faucet in the shower was reversed, no coffee, inconsistent towel service (missing wash cloths and/or hand towels. The place is OK but all these little annoyances add up to a perception that they don't pay attention to details.

Had a relaxing getaway in our lake view room with balcony. Room was clean, comfortable and had modern, sleek decor. Enjoyed the Lather toiletries. The pool was heated. We rented a pontoon and cruised along the lake. Only cons: mosquitoes congregating by the doorway light fixtures at night, could not open the doors without a swarm of mosquitoes getting in the room. Also no restaurant on site, had to walk to nearby country club for meals.

Overall we loved our stay. The only issue is that the walls are paper thin and any loud noise seems louder. There was a wedding party in the next room and multiple rooms complained. The hotel did what they could to tame the situation. The construction seems cheap so the guest experience is compromised.too bad because the hotel otherwise is amazing

This is a great hotel and a good value. I paid only $168 on a weekday in March. Rooms recently renovated and very nice. Even pool view rooms on the 2nd floor have a view of the lake. Having a nice balcony to sit was great. Didn't have time to go out in the boats but hope to do it next time. Only 15 minutes from really good restaurants in Carlsbad. Would definitely stay here again. Only down side was hearing music and people noise around the pool in the evening by the fire pit when I was on my balcony. But when I went inside I didn't hear it. If I didn't have to get up early for meetings I would have joined them at the fire pit. Didn't experience any mosquitos that folks are talking about. I'm thinking that's because it was March and too early. Maybe it's only a summer thing.

Planned on going to another hotel closer to SeaWorld the next night, but decided to stay here another night because we enjoyed it so much. For the price would have appreciated complimentary breakfast since there wasn't a lot of restaurants in the area but still love the hotel.

Easily the nicest place to stay in San Marcos. The room was immaculate (kudos to the room maintenance staff) and features a single-cup Keuig coffee maker. The staff was friendly and helpful. There's no on-site gym, but you do get privileges at the country club around the corner.

I will stay again, specially for vacation. I wish there was a cafe close by, since the Lakehouse cafe is closed. It was not convinient to walk to country club for a cup of coffee!

This hotel is newly renovated and super cute. We got the lakeside room, and let me tell you, it is a steal! The lake was literally our backyard. Lakeside activities are available daily, fire pits, pools, and overall an amazing experience.

This was a very pleasant stay overall. I would have preferred not to have had to listen to reggae music ad nauseum by the pool, but oh well.
