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.

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.

Hotel staff amazing. Setting beautiful. The rooms were were spotless, I've never stayed in a hotel with such fresh smelling linens. 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 enjoy staying at this hotel. It is in a very nice community and the hotel is up dated with a very nice decor. I have stayed there 4 times over the years and I am sure I will stay there again. However this stay there were a few complaints. The couch in the room I was in this time was pretty old (appearing) and in need of a good cleaning if not replacement. When I left the room for a bit and returned, when I turned on the light I found a VERY tiny bug on the side of the couch that I could not identify. Not accusing the hotel of having bed bugs as it did not quite resemble one but still looked close enough that it really creeped me out. Killed it and looked around a bit more and found nothing else but how nasty the couch was when I looked up close. When I took a shower the next day I did notice that the tile that you stand on in the shower could use a little bit better of a cleaning but nothing terrible just a bit of a build up to the touch under my feet but it visually looked ok. Everything else was very nice and clean. Im sure that was just a random bug that got in. However that couch was gross.

Nice hotel by the lake but otherwise in the middle of nowhere. They do call themselves a resort, but this is a remodelled motel, so the outward appearance is quite displeasing to be honest, and the facilities are spread out. When we went into our room however, we were very pleasantly surprised... they are gorgeously elegant, with relaxing room colors, comfortable beds, clean showers, tall ceilings etc. It was a bit annoying that the Grill which is their affiliated restaurant (which does provide room service) is almost half a mile down the road at the country club. We went there for breakfast and it was decent, but with two kids, we had to drive there.

We had another wonderful vacation at the Lakehouse Hotel & Resort. Unfortunately Management wanted to put us in the back rooms, although there were barely any guests on-site (off-season). In order to get an upgraded room, with pool view (vista), they charged us an additional $10 per night. C'mon. Almost no guests, enough rooms, perfect hotel... did you really need this? What about courtesy? We were after all, repeat customers? Our mistake for assuming a complimentary upgrade would be offered.

We have had family in the San Marcos Lake neighborhood for years and have always stayed at the Lakehouse (formerly the Quail Lodge). The remodel is fantastic and the overall redesign work is amazing. The service is better then most hotels. We had a "neighbor" that partied late and the front desk took care of it very quickly. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great place at a very good rate. We will be back...!

Have stayed at the Lakehouse several times on business. The staff has always been very accommodating and very helpful. We were looking for a good place for dinner and some shopping and we were provided with many ideas and even they even printed maps for us! The rooms are decorated really cute and love the balconey's on the upstairs rooms! Very clean. It is a little odd that the resort seems to be in the middle of a residential area but that makes for a very quiet stay! I would definetly recommend staying her. It looks like it would be a great place for families with children also! Lots of activities!

My room was very comfortable - king size bed, nice sitting area, a little area with a bar, coffee maker and small fridge. The bathroom was very nicely appointed. The air conditioner (heater) was a constant noise which was one of the only negatives.

Top design and choice of materials/ especially tile on floor of bathroom and kitchenette that looked like weathered wood. Sturdy bright yellow Adirondack chairs on the patio with view of the lake and rolling hills. Comfortable bed, good pillows and sheets. Friendly, competent front desk and maid service. Nice brunch buffet at the golf clubhouse.
