Certin times of the year you can get a good value at this hotel, previously a Ramada. Breakfast is acceptable, rooms are comfortable and clean. Short drive out to a couple of the Casinos. Plenty of good restaurants close to the hotel.

This hotel is adjacent to a freeway off and on ramp. You hear cars accelerating ad shifting gears throughout the night. It got a bit better after midnight. Also room walls are paper thin. We especially heard our neighbors water running If you struggle to sleep with noise this is not the hotel for you.

Booked a non-smoking room for guarantee late arrival and was given a smoking room. Couldn't switch as property was fully booked. Next morning when I tried to speak to the manager, he didn't even come to the office to meet me in person.

We stayed at the days in on a beer trip in San Marcos. The bed sheets had a blood stain on it. The towel had someone else's hair in it as it was folded up and not cleaned. Was disappointed because we have stayed here before with no problem. We will not be returning.

We stayed at this hotel for one night. We arrived before check in and were told that we would have to come back after 3:00. Then we saw the person who came in after us promptly get checked in to their room. Not a big deal, but a little annoying. It is a basic hotel. The room was big enough...
