Candlewood Suites San Marcos, San Marcos
Very Good8.0
3 night family stay with dog
The hotel itself was kept very clean, wifi great, service great, maids, even maintenance worker was wonderfully friendly, nice modern rooms with kitchenette and a large desk area for homework and business! However, the initial entrance to the hotel parking lot area was creepy. You have to access from a service (frontage road) road which has a small sign covered by weeds on lot in front of hotel. There must have been an additional lot in front of hotel, maybe a closed business, but it was all long tall weeds and bushes, and could barely tell there was a hotel entrance next to it. We were worried pulling up thinking it was the hotel's lot. No breakfast available, just a snack room for purchases. Pets are allowed. Workout room available, and an outdoor pool was open, but it was too cold to use but water looked clear, except for a few leaves in the bottom, and very disappointed there was no indoor pool (hard to find in TX). Only 1 elevator and it was slow and sounded ready to break down. No game room, bars or restaurants attached to hotel. Hotel located on a very busy intersection of I35 and Wonder World Dr. Next time we might try to find a better hotel, at least with an indoor pool.

Awesome stay., Room was impecable!!!
Everything was great, the only thing i was upset about was, that our room was too close to elevator, so we could hear the ring of it at each moment.

Disappointed with lack of service
We booked this as part of a Texas state university family weekend. We requested 2 queen beds to accommodate ourselves and our 15yr old. My husband was unable to join us in the end. When I checked in there was only one queen bed in the room. I went downstairs to ask for another room. To hotel was fully booked but a roll away bed was promised. We took off to enjoy the family weekend activities and when we returned for the night at around 1130pm there was no roll away bed in the room. Seeing the other my 15 yr old decided to sleep on the chair in the room. I was hugely disappointed with the lack of service given to us and will not be recommending this hotel to friends or family. My husband travels around the US a lot and after telling him about our experience will avoid using Candlewood suites wherever he can. Very disappointing!!

Great experience
Our stay at Candlewood was awesome. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. Manny was accommodating upon arrival. The beds were comfortable and the room was open and spacious. We will definitely return.
