More About San Marcos, TX Hotels...

What San Marcos Hotels are Closest to Austin?

The interstate motels on the north end of San Marcos are your best bet for convenience to Austin. The Summit Inn Hotel and Suites has rooms starting at $65 per night, making it one of the cheapest hotels in San Marcos. The Ramada Limited San Marcos tends to offer similar quality at a lower price and with more amenities, like pet accommodations, than many of the surrounding motels.

What Airbnb Options Are in San Marcos?

Homes open for guests via Airbnb are a nice alternative to the motels that make up the majority of the available accommodations in San Marcos. It's easy to find a clean and comfortable room for $100 to $150 per night, or even an entire townhouse for $300. These are typically better options for families and larger groups, especially during the spring and summer peak seasons when the San Marcos River opens to the public for tube and shuttle rides.

What Should I Know About College Crowds?

Texas State University starts its fall quarter at the end of August, so expect larger crowds and fuller hotels around this time as students and their families arrive. The most convenient hotels to the university campus are the Red Roof Inn and the Days Inn on South Interstate 35 Frontage Road. The Howard Johnson San Marcos is also one of the most affordable hotels convenient to Aquarena Springs, a travel and university hotspot close to Bobcat Stadium. Check the university's sports schedule to plan for game day traffic.
