    We had a perfect experience. The staff is fabulous and so friendly. Loved the outdoor space. The personal breakfast in the morning was amazing. Very nice experience and would stay again.

    Fantastic

    This place is my new go-to in San Marcos. Walking distance to the Square. Fantastic staff. Couldn't recommend more.

    Great Location - needs some TLC.

    Fantastic Location in San Marcos - Walking distance to bars, restaurants, the square, etc., and about 15 minutes from where we floated the river. Breakfast was great, too. Unfortunately, the Crystal River Inn left a lot to be desired in the guest space. We stayed in the Rio Grande room and beyond the design being a bit dated, it mostly needed some serious maintenance. Smoke Alarm dangling from its cord, water damage stains on the ceiling and cracks in the walls, AC vent rusty and falling out of the ceiling, rug dirty and tattered, plate around the plug in the bathroom not screwed in, towel bar missing from it's mounts on the wall. We used rewards to book, but the location would not have been worth the price otherwise.

    Not worth the price!

    We were there 20years ago. It was excellent inn, clean and fresh sheet. Now it looks terrible! Sheets don't feel washed! Dusty stained carpet, broken furniture. Peeling very old wallpaper in the bathroom and hallways. Breakfast mediocre for pricy inn! Not worth the money !!! PS. I very seldom give bad reviews.

    Great location, nice people, great breakfast. That said the place is looking a bit tired if you look at detail - mattress needed to be replaced, carpet very old, drain in shower/tub not working well, door knob falling out,

    Misery in San Marcos

    False advertising about the 'fireplace' in the room- there is a heater with glowing fake embers... Incredibly loud traffic for rooms facing the street. Deafening at times. There are several buildings, we were stuck above the hair salon, massage parlor, nail salon - and weird Ronald (horror film reference) seems to live on the top floor listening to the radio or tv in a hushed blare. Don't waste your money. Caveat emptor!
