It had a fridge, coffee maker and decent size tv The pool was the best... More

Been coming here for years. Just went again for Sandfest 2015. This is probably the best and most reasonable priced little beach motel on the island. Doesn't look like much when you pull up, but the manager Nero is great, he makes you feel right at home, and for the money the rooms are decent for this Texas beach town.... More

Best place to stay in Port Aransas!! Great rooms, great staff!! Nero is the best!! Very clean & nice!! Always a fun time!! Close enough to the beach to enjoy it, but far enough away that you don't get all the traffic!

It was so awesome to stay here! My sister and I enjoyed relaxing in the hottub. And very close to a good location on the beach. This little gem is one of the most hospitable places I have vacationed at. They gave us a whole free pizza and ribs, I think that says enough!

The guy who owns this place was rude. Gave the room we reserved to other people even though we reserved our room a week before arrival. He also charged extra fees to our card. The room smelled weird. If you want to have a good time and enjoy your stay I'd HIGHLY recommend finding a different hotel

Ashley1245, I must admit that I am a somewhat confused by review of your stay with us, and though most of what you say is factually accurate, it is a bit lacking. You’re right…I did switch your room with another guest. The air conditioner in the room you had originally reserved had a rattle of some sort. Since you had... More

There's a reason Pt A. Inn was voted a top 15 fun (or unique, I can't remember the precise adjective) place to stay in TX by Trip Advisor, 2013 -- There's unique, funky theme rooms; they have great, varied music playing pool-side; even a live, solo guitarist some weekends on a stage that's set up partially over the pool. I... More

You might find a newer hotel or a fancier hotel but you will NOT find a friendlier or more helpful staff. After staying a few times you'll feel like friends. Best, friendliest hotel I have EVER stayed in! Janet

The people who work there, make you feel right at home. They will jump through hoops to make sure your stay a memorable one. The themed rooms are fun, and it is located well within walking distance to the beach. This is truly the place to stay at when in Port Aransas.

Low-cost, clean rooms, close to the beach and only a mile away from all the fun bars. Also, the staff goes above and beyond to make you happy. When I couldn't get a cab, the owner gave me a ride to my car. Now that's customer service! The themed rooms are only $5 extra and they're well worth it. My... More

The first time we stayed here we were met by the manager, Nero! He clearly cares about his customers as he handed us the key and showed us the room while asking if we needed help with our bags. The room was amazing and was so comfortable and clean!! We were so impressed with this place that when we got... More
