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

Port Aransas Inn "Pink Palace" is the best place to stay on the island. We have been here multiple times. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a fun family atmosphere where the management treats you like VIP. The rooms are individually themed and have a real down home feel. Saturday night entertainment at the pool is also a must... More

We've stayed here a couple times and we love it. The rooms are always clean and have a mini fridge or a kitchenette with a full size fridge. The rooms are spacious and not cramped like a lot of hotel/motels on the island. I've stayed at MANY places on the island and used to live in Port A and I... More

This is not the place to stay if you are wanting a lot of amenities. The Pink Palace is a little run down and a little worn around the edges. But it has it's charms. The good: Our room was spacious and clean. It had a nice TV with a good selection of channels. Nero, who runs the hotel, seems... More

Clean rooms, cold a/c, and Nero is the greatest host you will ever find. The house band on Saturday was amazing. Local flare and great fun. Very short walk or drive to the beach. We will definitely return.

I have been staying at the Port Aransas Inn for a few years now. I have the contact saved on my phone. There has never been a time that I have called, that Nero turned me away. He calls back if he has to do some switching around or confirming of some of the rooms if it is a busy... More
