Our visit was great. The front desk was fast,fun and friendly. Our room was clean and we loved our upgrade with my favorite coffee and snacks anytime we wanted one!! The pool was great and met new friends. We always love the evening reception (bartender could have maybe smiled every so often to appear more friendly). The breakfast was yummy with a great selection. Embassy is always our first choice always sad when the town doesn't have one.

So I actually stay here quite often because my daughter attends school at the local university. The hotel is nice and the front desk staff are very friendly. My biggest complaint about this hotel is the bathrooms. Each room I stay in, the bathroom is worn out. Chipped wall paper or cracks in the wall. And the lighting is horrible. Most hotels in this price range have better bathrooms. No liquid soap....This hotels bathroom is just average...which is the reason for this rating. Breakfast is pretty nice. Lots of items to choose from...The omelet bar is nice but it is nothing exceptional....

The managers special in the evenings is a nice touch. They usually have water with cucumber or lemon in the front of the hotel. But the last time I stayed there...nothing.

Room Tip: I enjoy facing the outlet mall but always choose a room on a higher floor because of the bar on the...

I'm sure this must be the best in San Marcos. Absolutely no complains. Very clean room. Very friendly front office. And the shuttle service to the nearby shopping malls is a added value, and you have no reason to get bored. The pool was very good. I should mention about the free drinks served in the bar in the evening hours. It's a wonderful idea, and it's fun to chill out after a hectic day. The restaurant was good. Though it may look slightly overpriced, the food is worth a mention. The massive structure and the huge lobby is a plus. I spent a lot of time in the lobby. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

I stayed here for an onsite stamping and scrapbook convention. Incredible experience for the money. I had a suite with refrig and microwave. I got cooked-to-order omelets and fruit, one of many choices for the complimentary breakfast. They even had a managers reception in the evening with free wine, beer or daily cocktail with a crunchy snack bar. This hotel was definitely part of the reason the whole weekend was such a wonderfully special experience!

This facility has the best customer service and accommodations around. I travel a lot and stay in lots of hotels that are full service and this group really appreciates your stay. The dinning and lounge are very nice to enjoy a wonderful meal and cocktails.

This hotel was beautiful and the service was wonderful. The only issue we had was at the evening reception which we thought would actually have food, not Goldfish type snacks. Other than that, it was a great place to stay with a friendly and helpful staff. Check-in was so fast, I was stunned. Will definitely stay there again.
