We had what we termed the Magnolia Suite. It was like spending the night in granny's room! It was beyond tacky and absolutely fun! The bed was comfy. The room was nice and cool and clean. We would come again. Had a great stay. Bring your own toiletries.

We had to cut our trip short due to an emergency but this bright pink motel deserves kudos for one main reason - it's manager Nero. He has his hands full running the Inn yet he treats each guest as if we were the most important people he has ever met. That is quite an accomplishment for sure. It's not... More

We reserved the Honey Moon Suite for our anniversary. It has a 2-person in-room hot tub that was great. The king size bed was very comfy. Large ice box with microwave. Décor was very tropical, with what I think was way to many dusty plastic palm trees & plants. With large mirrors on every wall. The carpet is worn out... More

We have stayed at the Port A Inn many times, this last time was for over a month. We love it here. Nero and Honore' are so nice and accommodating. Anything we needed, they provided. The rooms are super clean and you never see any sand! They have entertainment on the weekends and they interact with all the guests. I... More

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
