"Great Staff, worn out rooms and furniture."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The staff at this hotel were kind when I asked for things like: extra towels, a different iron, tec. However, I was unimpressed with a few things: 1. the lighting in the rooms is the cold LED bright lights. I appreciate LEDs for their sustainability, but there are way better hues to chose from that create nicer atmosphere. The lobby had nice soft white, but rooms and halls were jarringly bright, cold white lights. 2. the rooms were tired and worn out. The side chairs had frayed materials, the window ledges had chipped paint. 3. while the restrooms were clean, they didn't present up to the Hampton/Hilton standard. We would have left and gone to another hotel (since we were there two nights), but the Hampton would not refund our payment.

"Nice stay in a quiet area."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Pricing reasonable for the area. Clean quiet room. Hotel staff accommodating, even texting with responses to requests. Nice pool area; would have loved a place to sit outdoors for breakfast before pool opened in the morning. Would stay there again.

"Clean, friendly, accommodating with nice breakfast!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Accommodating in letting us check in early for a wedding after driving five hours!

"Facility needs an upgrade."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I don't know Hilton's franchise policy, but this property needs some work. The rooms look and feel old, wallpaper is peeling in the bathroom and the tub paint that looks like a previous repair is also peeling. Wallpaper in the hallways is old and ugly.

10-Apr-2019 Verified Review, stayed from Sat Apr 06 to Mon Apr 08 2019 at a $121.93 average nightly rate.
"Disorganized hotel booking."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Recently booked a room from wedding party group rate. They had difficulty finding my booking and said confirmation number was not found on their site. They told me my confirmation number was not in their system and that there were no other rooms available. Front desk staff said manager had previously notified him about the issue with the group rate so I thought the staff could have been better prepared to handle reservations booked through the group rate. They took a while to search through the system to find my reservation. I've booked through group rates before from previous wedding and never had issues with my reservation. Will not be booking this hotel again if I stay in San Marcos.
