They've been working on updating, cleaning carpets, painting, repairs. My experience was wonderful. Microwave and mini refridge w/freezer. was exceptionally clean, tv, people are very kind. It isn't a posh delux resort....it's a fine overnight or few night stay. I plan to return....all I need is clean bed, clean sheets and towels and cold air conditioner....even plan to return as...

This was a cheap place to stay in San Marcos. It was CLEAN. The people were nice. No "modern amenities." I was by myself and was out except for a place to sleep. I would not recommend it if you were trying to do anything in the room. The parking lot was torn up--difficult to get into.

If you just need a bed then that's ok. No light switches worked. Extremely hard to get into from bypass. And parking my truck in a tiny parking spot very difficult. Spend the extra money and stay elsewhere.

At check in I asked how to get onto the wi-fi. I was told it will just come up you don't need any password. Then I go to my room. The light switches at the door did not work. So I had to walk into a dark room to find the light switches that did work. Then the tv did...

Not a good place to stay, inside or out. Difficult to get to parking lot. Not too clean. No coffee maker in room - not even in the lobby! Bed was not that great. Blow dryer did not work. No little soaps or shampoo/conditioner bottles. It would be ok if it was around $50, but I paid close to $80....

I stayed there one night and it was the most disgusting room I've ever seen. Half the lights did not work. The carpet appears to not even been vacuumed. There were lots of trash behind the bed headboards. There was a giant dead roach in the tub. There were crumbs everywhere. The beds were very hard. I fully expect a...

In San Marcos this weekend and attempted to book a disabled veteran in the Americas Best Value Inn. They do not give discounts to Veterans. This is the 3rd ABVI that refused Veteran discounts. Disappointing in so many ways. Just to let all you Vets know.

Horrible location for getting into the parking lot. Extremely overpriced for amenities provided. Internet does not work, it takes many tries to connect to the wifi, and once you have it is slower than 2400 bps dial up. Literally the worst hotel in the whole city, you will not be glad you stayed here. Front desk employees are rude and...

The bed was so hard we may as well have slept on the floor. There was no shampoo, no coffee, the clock did not work, the wi-fi only stayed connected a few minutes at a time. There was a used bar of soap in the shower and lots of hair on the floor. I went to the office to ask...
