Not the worst but definitely not the best...
I choose this hotel because it was advertised as Holiday Inn Seaworld, however, it was not really that close, there was another Holiday Inn that was closer to the park. The staff that greeted us was very nice and informative, which was probably the best thing about our stay. The room itself was ok but I did feel like it was not thoroughly cleaned. There were some spots on the shower walls and the curtain was too small leaving a gap open on either end of the shower, which created a puddle of water that extend past the toilet. We only stayed for 1 night but I feel that at the price it could've at least been a little cleaner.

10/10 Exceptional

My wife and I like to stay at this location when we visit my step-daughter, who is a freshman at Texas State University. The property is on the southern end of San Marcos, which makes it easy for us to drive into San Marcos to see my step-daughter or drive south to New Braunfels to go to Schlitterbahn. The property is well-maintained, and the staff are courteous and friendly. The rooms are spacious and updated with numerous outlets into which to plug our numerous electronic devices. For the price, we think this is the best stay in the area.
