"No lake view but Nice room"
The hotel overall Looks great. The room was well maintained. I wished the description would've said inside view (parking really) because we would've spent that extra something to have a decent view. Otherwise it's just another nice room :/

"Loved this hotel"
We were in San Marcos to visit my husbands family and so that our 6 month old could meet his great grandparents before his second open heart surgery. My husband hates staying at big chain hotels so when I found this place, we didn't hesitate to book it. Had we had more time to save, we would have gotten a room that faced the lake but nonetheless, our standard room was still great. We loved the homey decor and immediately felt comfortable. I personally loved the fire pit out by the pool. Very relaxing. The only thing that might bother some people was there were a couple mosquitos in our room. No biggie to us because we live in a rural area, but that's what you get when you are next to a body of water.

"No soundproofing"
One can here all footsteps from the rooms above. The Wi-Fi is slow and cuts out. Rooms are only cleaned if requested but one is not informed of this at check-in. Only take a room on the upper level. Bathroom has only a small counter.

"Quick Turnaround"
Sorry I can't add more, but this was a quick business trip. Each day I was out all day at meetings, returned to the hotel late, and didn't have a chance to really enjoy the accommodations and surrounding area. The hotel and my room was clean, comfortable and quiet; just what I was looking for and needed.

"Best choice for N. San Diego County"
We have stayed here many times as we have relatives in the area. Lovely property - much different from ocean front properties, but good highway access to the beaches and all the north county San Diego family attractions. On-site fire pits and seating areas. I love the sounds of the ducks and swans - great very accommodating staff. Really nice lakeside property - some construction going on which will only make the area better. Go for the Lakefront units if you can afford it!

"An In-town Treasure"
Our stay was for a brief in-town getaway to celebrate the New Year. The lake House is. . . almost outstanding. The amenities on site were great and the view from the room was beautiful (steps away from the lake and boat rentals). We had delicious room service that was reasonably priced. There were only two things that were less than a complete pleasure--the mattress was lumpy and had dips in it, and there was noise from the room above us (creaks whenever they walked around). We would definitely go back again, but next time we'll get an upstairs room.

Stayed here for one night to avoid driving a lot on new year's eve. Attended a party at our friend's place in Vista, and had a hard time wanting to leave the room! The next morning was lazy and wonderful. Great coffee was just steps away at the little cafe store. The room was tastefully decorated with comfortable furniture. Toiletries provided smelled very nice. Pools were heated, though we did not use them this time. You will enjoy your stay here.

Poor service. Stayed there for 3 nights. During 2nd night, the maid only replaced the towels but didn't make up the beds. Tips is also untaken. We were guessing if the maid didn't see the tips on the table or not? But regardless, our room should get serviced even without tips.

"Satisfied Customer"
Thought to check this hotel out since it's a 4 star and for the rate it was going for on the day of my travel, it was a deal since this hotel usually charge $249/night on peak season. Hidden gem in San Marcos, CA. I will surely come back and stay here again. Love the firmness of the mattress, bathroom size is good too and you get an great view from your balcony too.

"Sweet town great location!"
This is a great property and San Marcos is a lovely location. The rooms are updated with walk in showers and Keurigs for morning cofee. The lakefront view was a nice treat while on business travel. Wish I would have had more time to relax and enjoy here! A couple of things to note, the buildings are 2 story with exterior doors. If you prefer 2nd floor you have to walk up stairs with your bags. I was glad I just had a carry on :) The TV did not work, but they were quick to respond and ultimately I was moved to a room nearby.

I wish I had the opportunity to stay at the hotel longer to enjoy its proximity to San Marcos Lake. They went with the nautical/boat house theme without being corny or cheesy. No detail was spared, and the facilities were very beautiful and modern.

"Beautiful family friendly lakeside resort"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lakehouse and can't wait to return again. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean, modern, comfortable with beautiful views of the glistening lake. We enjoyed afternoon appetizers delivered to the pool and a delicious breakfast delivered to our room. I highly recommend renting a boat for a sunset cruise. We hooked up our blue tooth and kids and adults enjoyed cruising around the lake feeding the swans and ducks.

"Luxurious accommodations"
I stayed here in a room block for a friend's wedding that was taking place nearby. If you're in the area to golf or attend a function, this is a great spot. Lovely, spacious rooms, modern decor and comfortable furnishings. It's ideally situated on the lake, perfect for a stroll or a bike ride. The area itself is rather remote, with not much in walking distance. Nonetheless, the hotel is beautiful and a great spot for a stay if you have plans in San Marcos.

4.0 / 5Excellent
For our purposes this hotel was convenient to visit our family in nearby Escondido and to have them visit us for a fun time in the pool. The staff was courteous, more than willing to help with any questions we had. The housekeeping staff was thorough and accommodating as could be. The grounds and pool area were well maintained. Walking paths and sidewalks were a clean and safe method to yet exercise as well. However the lighting was nonexistent over the mirrors making shaving and hairstyling, etc. impossible. Although the decor in the bathroom was current and trendy, the only way to turn on the shower head was to actually enter the stall thus becoming soaked in cold water while attempting to adjust the temperature. The pillows choices could include a softer version as well. The fact that there is no on site laundry made a five night stay quite inconvenient. Over all our stay was satisfactory.

"Beautiful hotel - very friendly"
This is a well kept clean beautiful hotel. The staff was very friendly, and let us check in early. The rooms were clean with white linens. The beds were temperpedic, I think, which some people love. I did not see any bugs - that was a concern reading other reviews. We had a balcony that looked out at the water. We had a 2nd floor room, and did not have problems with noise, which I had also read reviews about. They had free smores at night. There was ample parking right by our room. There were 2 pools - seemed like the upper pool was more adult - with people drinking, and the lower pool was family oriented, although they were right next to eachother. I would definitely like to come here again!

"Relaxing Stay - Close to Breweries, Great Design"
We had a great stay at the Lake House Hotel - it was very clean, the customer service was excellent (we got there 4 hours before check in and there wasn't a room available, so they gave us a key with pool access so we were able to relax at the pool until the room was ready!). LOVE LOVE LOVE the effort they've put into their design - lots of little touches to make our stay even better - robes, great bath amenities, chairs on the porch, fun music at the pool (they play music at the pool from 9a-9p so if that bothers you I would request to not have a pool view in building 2 (that's where some speakers are mounted) - it didn't bother us!). They have a poolside bar and you can order light snacks. The pool loungers, fire pit were really nice touches. We loved our stay and would definitely stay again if in the area. Uber ride to Stone brewery was $13.50.

"Wonderful Weekend Getaway"
We are native Southern Californians who were looking to book a weekend getaway from our city life in Los Angeles. We had planned to attended a wedding on the Saturday weekend; however, we didn't want to stay in Temecula (where the ceremony was being held). Initially we were searchinh for possible places in San Diego but Expedia also suggested The LakeHouse Resort in San Marcos. This ended up being the perfect place for a quiet weekend. Also, we are both very active and the resort offered water activities as well as a nicely sized gym close by. The resort is also located close to several shopping centers with a plethora of dining and entertainment options. The room was was fairly spacious and we had a balcony that overlooked the pool, and the lake, which was an excellent location for reading in the evenings. We only had one small problem with a drunk guest making some noise in the hallway around midnight on Saturday (shortly after we arrived home from the wedding), but the staff was excellent and sent someone up right away to sort the situation out. Definitely will be returning in the future and recommending this place to our friends!

The hotel overall was very lax in their rules and regulations which was a pleasant surprise. Pools stayed open late and our boat rental was an hour over without being charged.

Perfect anniversary get away. The staff sleazy polite and professional, the room was clean and the best was so comfortable. I asked for a little something during check in for our anniversary, and since they allowed us to check in early I thought they forgot. We went for a walk of the resort and when we came back to the room there was a meat and cheese platter with a bottle of champagne waiting for us. They are very thoughtful. Room service was fast, brunch was amazing. Only bad thing was that they didn't have the paddle boats to rent when we went. Other than that we will deff be going back. Oh and the pool is to die for!
