Close to Texas State University, Tanger Outlets and Schlitterbahn

You’ve come to the right place for exceptional service and a prime location off Interstate 35 at the gateway to Texas Hill Country when you stay at our Howard Johnson San Marcos hotel near Texas State University.

Our friendly 24-hour front desk staff is just waiting to answer questions and tell you about our terrific amenities such as free Rise & Dine continental breakfast, free daily newspaper, free Wi-Fi Internet access, copy service and our guest laundry. Take a swim in our year-round outdoor pool, and cook up a tasty meal in our barbeque area. Non-smoking and handicapped-accessible rooms are available at our San Marcos, TX, hotel. For your convenience, we offer limited room service.



Begin with a family-friendly adventure at Wonder World Park and explore a cave, ride a train through a cascading waterfall into an animal petting park, climb an observation tower and experience an anti-gravity house. Move on to Zilker Botanical Gardens, where you can relax in the beauty and tranquility of one of the themed gardens. With miles of tube chutes, endless rivers and uphill water coasters, Schlitterbahn Waterpark is the perfect way to cool off on a blistering Texas day, 12 miles from our San Marcos, TX, hotel. Hit the shops at nearby Tanger Outlets for some great deals and discounts.


Settle into Kettle for breakfast any time of day — or night, as they are open ’round the clock — unless you prefer lunch or dinner. Mix Texas Hill Country cuisine with regional flavors from surrounding states and you get delicious food with a luscious hand-squeezed margarita at Palmer’s Restaurant Bar & Courtyard. Settle into your chair and enjoy the colorful décor and spicy Tex-Mex fare served with a smile at Mamacita’s Restaurant, just a half mile from our San Marcos, Texas, hotel.
