We stayed at the Lake House Hotel with friends for the weekend. The rooms were very nice, the pool was so fun, and most of all, the service was incredible. My husband left his wallet in the room on the day we left the hotel. One of the housekeepers discovered the wallet and Lake House Hotel gave us a call and mailed the wallet back. Thanks for the wonderful service!

The staff were very welcoming and pleasant to work with. Clean rooms and great amenities. Great little get-away for couples yet family oriented. Not a whole lot to do in the city of San Marcos but Carlsbad and Oceanside were right next door. Visited during weekend of June 6th. Can't wait to visit again!

Room Tip: Rooms with lake view are the best!

Hotel/resort was very pretty and well appointed. We were travelling with another couple who, in my opinion, received better service upon checkin (i.e., asked if they wanted an upper room) (most definitely want that because you can hear every footstep from the room above) or lower room. We did not get asked that; we were just assigned a lower room (big mistake). They have two great pools and a pool bar. From the outside, great views of the mountains and lake!

The rooms were tastefully decorated. Beds were memory foam and helped my hubby and I make a decision to get one for home but the walls are extremely thin, the noise from the room above was too much even over a sound machine which I was thankful I brought with us but only helped a bit. They call themselves a resort but I thought resort meant tranquil and peaceful which this place is not.

Not sure if we'd go back or not. It's not a relaxing hotel. Way too much noise, unfortunately because everything else is well done.

We went here for some relaxing, quiet time. Overall, it was quiet and relaxing. The hotel was not that crowded, so I don't know why they put people above us. At 6:30 am we could hear the noise from the person/persons above us. In the afternoon, when we were in the room the noise continued. It sounded like a young child running around. I went and told the desk attendant. They offered us another room or they could let the people know about the noise. Well, the noise continued after the call. We moved to another building on the upper floor. Great! Unfortunately, work was being done at 7:30 am the next morning. The front desk was very apologetic. We will go back, but will ask for an upper room.

We had stayed at this place several years ago. Well I can tell you, the renovation of this property has transformed it. The overall design is wonderful. The pool complex is one of the best I've seen in years--two great pools and two whirlpool spas. All of the details have been handled with the utmost care and quality. Views of the lake and mountains are wonderful. And the service was great!

Even the Adirondack chairs are taller than normal so you can see the view over the balcony railings! We will be back.

The Lakehouse Hotel is a wonderful location. We stayed for 2 nights with a room overlooking the lake - stunning/awesome views. The hotel is clean, fresh, bright, modern and well decorated. There are plenty of shops nearby a short drive away - within 10mins. The hotel restaurant is at the local St Marks Holf Club / Country Club where the food and service was excellent. The hotel pools and spa pool were excellent. This hotel is wihtin reach of Legoland, San Diego zoo and other attractions.
I would recommend this hotel to family and friends. Good for families, honeymooners and couples just wanting to get away from it all.
