Upon arriving, we met a wonderful staff who were friendly and accommodating not only then, but every time we saw them. The room was clean, cheerfully decorated, and just "felt like" the beach. We had absolutely no complaints, and would stay here again without reservation (pun intended :)). We loved the coffee available in the lobby at all times. You... More

We had been hoping for a place on the beach, but our large suite faced the highway and a wetlands on the other side of it. The rooms were huge, large enough so we didn't trip over each other. Great staff: friendly and helpful. The location was better than we imagined: it was only a short bike ride to the... More

Enjoyed staying here, I like motels for a casual trip to the coast. The staff was friendly and always helpful. Heated pool was small but nice in the cool Match evening. I liked that it's not in the middle of town but out just a bit. Will stay there again!

The hallways and the exterior of this hotel looked a bit dirty and shabby. Our room,however, was extremely clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. An added bonus for us was the washer and dryer facility at the hotel.

We stayed this week in one of the king suites. Nice to take a family and have room for everyone. This place is a little noisy from the traffic, but we still slept fine. Good Breakfast (waffles, oatmeal, muffins, etc.) Had trouble with our door knob, but staff went above and beyond to compensate for the trouble. Kids love the... More

We were impressed the moment we called the hotel requesting an early check in. The agent said normally we are sold out the night before but I do have a one room available le. I thought this was very kind as we came into town earlier than expected. Once we arrived we immediately were treated like family. I had a... More

All 3 girls I met in office were SO sweet and helpful. Besides the clean rooms, there is a heated pool with cute bar area. Breakfast is included. Even a room with pool table and ping pong that I forgot to use! I always stay ON the beach when in Port Aransas - but this was great - it's changing... More

First time to Port A, so we were not sure where to stay. This place is close to the road & a loud bar is across the street. Walls are thin so it's definitely noisy here. It's been updated nicely & clean. Staff is very friendly. Breakfast is only cold items & waffles. The hotel is a mile from the... More

This place is clean, well appointed, roomy enough and is good value. The beds are very comfortable. The location is fine and the staff are welcoming and helpful. The breakfast is nothing special, though and would be our only negative.
