My family and I stayed at this Motel 6 the night of 11/28/2014. The room was nice. It appeared to be recently remodeled. I have no complaints regarding the room, and was all that I expected for a Motel 6. I paid an additional $4.99 for higher speed internet service and the service was terrible. The internet would work well...

I have tons of reasons to visit San Marcos and staying in a fancy hotel just is not in my budget right now. This Motel 6 is my go to motel for any of my San Marcos trips. I really like the modern look to the rooms and I have had good experiences the past 4 times I stayed here...

I had booked a room for 8/31/2014. The pictures are NOT what they are! Which is very scary!!! The Motel states that it has been remodeled but I would say it needs a new contractor and for the company to ask for a refund on any work done! My room had a huge stain (looked like blood on the floor)...

Asked for a quiet room....so with only 10% of the rooms filled, they put me under a person on 2nd floor. Brilliant ! Bed linens had hair on them, floors were dirty, mosquitos in the room. Loud, Loud, Loud if someone near you starts their shower....forget about sleeping. Sounds like a sander is in your room. Also, the floors are...

I have never felt so unsafe in my life. From the moment we pulled into the parking lot we were scared. We were there for a total of 30 mins, checked in, took our stuff to the room to find that they had given us a smoking room. We had our kids with us so this was not acceptable. Returned...

very nice bathroom, roomy and spacious. ok bed, very very nice staff. For the two night price of $181.90 I paid in summer during the high season, I felt the value was lacking when so many last minute deals are available on priceline name your price or express deals on priceline for Austin. Austin is a bit of a drive...

Good deal for the price. Room clean. Beds ok. Outside of motel needs a good power washing. After reading other reviews of hotels in area, will say this one did not have any bugs that I saw. Room did have a little bit of a weird smell. Close to Texas State and lots of restaurants. Just up the interstate from...

Motel 6 is a hit or miss. Some are better than others. This one was decent. The staff was nice and we got a room that was away from the pool due to the noise level. The floor was a little sticky but was cleaned during the day before we returned for Saturday night. Given the price and the location,...

Dog friendly, and people friendly too! Staff, Laurie taking care of the front desk, awesome service! We came on a Sunday late afternoon, I saw the cleaning carts out still at like 5:30! Super busy weekend, but everyone was still working hard. Here's where you know you've got a good crew- they're talking and don't know the customer is watching,...

Driving back from Mexico to Iowa in April. I crossed the border at 4pm made it to this motel that evening. A perfect stopping point. The person at the desk was more than helpful. The room was very clean and had a large tv. Very relaxing after a long day on the road. Will definitely stay again.
