The price and location, and the fact that hotels closer to Legoland were sold out caused us to choose this hotel. It was a good choice too, because the location was convenient, and it is a quality hotel. It is very clean, and the beds are comfortable. I would say the breakfast is just adequate, but not really good. If...

Very pleasant staff. Rooms seem upgraded and quality materials. Excellent swimming poll allowed us and family to spend an exciting afternoon. Breakfast was Hampton's usual high grade. Top floor - no noise!

The room, bathroom, and the grab and go breakfast is great. I've stayed at this location a few times, its quiet, clean, and dependable. Staff are friendly, and helpful. There are great restaurants at the next exit; Phil's BBQ and Sushi Huku are good. Shopping is close if you need some snacks in your room.

I had to make quick arrangements for a engagement in Carlsbad but after looking at prices (too expensive) and on-line reviews (bad) decided to look else where, and found this location. It was perfect, well worth price compared to similar in Carlsbad, which is just a 20 minute drive away. The facilities were clean, modern, comfortable and the staff was...

We stayed at the Hampton Inn in San Marcos while visiting family and were pleased with the room, the breakfast and the staff. Would definitely choose the hotel again when we are down in that area. We were pleasantly surprised about the quality and diversity of the breakfast. Waffles were delicious and omelet was light and fluffy. Room was very...

We have stayed at this hotel several times and have always been impressed with how clean and well managed the property is. The staff is well trained, friendly, and helpful. It is also is easy to get to from the freeway, and is close to shopping, restaurants, and other area attractions.

We have stayed here many times. While not the newest or most modern, the staff does a great job in maintaining a professional and comfortable facility and atmosphere. Great location and convenience while avoiding excessive crowds. Very good breakfast facility and superb coffee and waffles.
