I actually had reservations at a different hotel but local friends told me to cancel those and book with Port Aransas Inn. I am glad I did! I will say that if I didn't have friends highly recommending this "Pink Palace", I might have changed my mind. Our usual type of hotel would be in the mid range like Hampton... More

My sister and I stayed at the Port Aransas inn for a week in April and absolutely loved it. Nero was an amazing host as was his coworker who cleaned and maintained the rooms (I forget her name but she was awesome). The walk to the beach was a very easy one, and the cab rides to the bars where... More

I had the most amazing visit. The honeymoon suite was affordable and beautiful. Chilled and always smelling amazing. Jacuzzi in the room was wonderful. Nero is the bomb. Absolutely love him. Didn't see him much. It was my honeymoon but we will be back and be more sociable. Been there before last October with family. The hot tub and pool... More

I came back from my third visit to Port Aransas Inn and as usual the quarters were well kept and I had what I needed it at all times. The staff was wonderful and helpful. I had a gentleman that works there carry my bags up as he knew i recently had surgery. Nero again, went above and beyond all... More

For budget minded traveler that just wants clean and comfortable. We got a bonus with live music by the pool on Sat night and a fun property manager. Good location, just bring your own coffee pot. If you have bad knees get ground floor room, no elevator.

Friendly Mgmt. Very reasonable. Close by all the shops, grocery store and restaurants. Was just right for our last minute reservation. There is a grill but didn't see it till the last day off to the side in the back. Wi-fi is a little slow but other than that, I recommend.

We had a bad experience in Corpus Christi and needed a place to stay. They stayed up late to welcome us, had the a/c on for us. Just the kind of place I would run. Very comfortable and personable. This will be our place to stay every time we come to Port Aransas.

I don't know if any new customer has ever written a review of the Pink Palace before their stay was even over, but I am. Firstly, I have to express how important Port Aransas is to my wife and I. When we first met, this was our first beach vacation together. We loved it so much we came back at... More
