My daughter lives in Escondido and finding a nice hotel is hard, so this one is very close. Very nice hotel in San Marcos right of the 78 Highway. Very friendly hotel staff with pleasant rooms. Also has a vey nice swimming pool and a very tasty complimentary breakfast.

Great place if you need a hotel in the area. Prices are decent. It's really close to the Palomar Medical Center. A little ways from San Diego proper but doable. The room s are nice and large. No complaints about cleanliness. The a/c/heater unit is a bit old and loud. No wall control, you control the unit by the window....

The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. I've never been treated better at any hotel at any price. I received an early check in and late departure without a hassle. I highly recommend this hotel when staying in San Marcos.

Too tired to drive home from San Marcos to Hemet, plus had work the next day 5 min from hotel, so decided to pay for extra sleep time. Saved myself a chance at death and stayed in the comfortable hotel room. It was quite, there are restaurants nearby and everything worked well, no funny smells, strange noises, or crazy people....

The hotel was nice, room very clean, comfortable and quiet (3rd floor) Amanda (front desk) was very helpful and goes above and beyond. Housekeepers were very thorough and never bothered us while we were sleeping in or even there for that matter.

I have used this hotel several times in the past because of its proximity to California State University San Marcos. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the service is great and they provide guests with complimentary breakfast that is one of the best I have experienced. All and all, excellent value for the price.

The Hampton Inn San Marcos provided fast and friendly service! Our family agreed that the added benefit was the quality of the breakfast! This was a great find and on such a short notice (I could not have planned it better). We will stay again!

Nice Hotel - good location, easy to get on the freeway. Clean and friendly, good option to say outside of San Diego with easy access to the city. Would recommend this hotel to anyone that is value oriented.
