"We absolutely love this place!"
We have stayed here multiple times and will come back again. The entire experience is outstanding. Excellent helpful and friendly staff, welcome package (smores) and free kayak/paddling on the lake, clean beautifully decorated rooms, pools and facilities. The adjacent restaurant "Decoy" is excellent for breakfast, Sunday brunch, lunch and dinner and includes room service. Everything is presented in the best possible way, with a keen eye for design all around (logos, printed materials, architecture, and interior design). I can highly recommend this hotel / resort to anybody, at any age, with or without kids!

I have to balance my expectations with the cost of the room. Excellent location, small room for the price, limited and crowded parking, pool seemed popular (I did not use it), lobby/breakfast room way too small, staff was not too knowledgeable but vary helpful, poor choices on TV, nice bathroom and very nice shower, recently remodeled but some things were left out such as wooden furniture was worn, garbage and maid carts sitting out in the parking lot in the sun was disappointing.

"Charming landscape"
My room was super clean and wheelchair accessible. The owners take great pride in this property. Landscape plants and flowers abound everywhere. Gazebos with water fountains provide pleasant outdoor seating. The owners have a lovely vegetable garden in back utilizing old bathtubs as above ground planters. The price is affordable, supermarket and shopping is walking distance. Really had a pleasant two night stay.

It was decent, they cleaned every day and that was nice, breakfast was nice every morning. The only thing I didn't like was the floor was very dirty. I would shower at night and from walking around the room barefoot my feet would be dirty by the time I went to bed. Otherwise, it was good. Just wear slippers!

Quick trip to get away with my wife for a day. Cardiff was the best location for a trip to the Botanical gardens and the Chart House for dinner with a pleasant walk back to our room in the evening. A quick cup of coffee on the roof and off to bed for a quiet night's sleep.

    Lake San Marcos is calling — find the perfect hotel

    Everyone wants to score a deal on travel, but price is just one factor to consider when booking an unforgettable hotel. Whether you’re visiting family, attending a conference or taking a well-earned vacation in Lake San Marcos, having an awesome experience should be a no-brainer.

    Hotwire will hook you up! From restful nights near your flight to that prime spot in the city’s heart, we’ve done our research to bring the best options to your fingertips. Book your Lake San Marcos hotel with us now and start your next adventure.

    You’re not the average traveler — and we know it

    You’ve done your homework and know exactly where you want to go. We’re here to help with some Hotwire travel geek-approved tips on how to save on your booking.

    Get away for the weekend

    Hotels in bigger cities usually charge higher rates during the week, when people are traveling for business. Weekends can be a bargain! It’s the other way around for vacation spots, so if you’re looking for a beach escape, consider a mid-week trip.

    Give yourself some wiggle room

    If your plans are flexible, play around with some different travel dates – a shift of a few days either way can help you save big. Prices usually jump the weekends before and after popular holidays, so we recommend steering clear of them. Or consider visiting during the off-season, when prices are generally lower.

    Plan around big events

    Are prices surprisingly high? There might be a huge conference or festival in town. Consider shifting your dates if you can. Of course, if that’s why you’re going, you’ll have to bite the bullet. We’ll still work to get you the best rates out there.

    Noodle over new adventures

    Set aside time to plan what you want to see, taste and discover. Nothing completes a trip, big or small, like a few new experiences! Check city apps or area websites to find out what’s new and what events are happening during your stay. Even during a family reunion, you can detour to that locals-only fish taco stand or under-the-radar music club. Your cousins will be impressed.
