WORST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE! As a small business owner, I rarely write bad reviews because I know how it can hurt a business. This one is deserved! I stayed one and a half nights here is my story: Checking in: I had my doubts but first vacation with the wife and young kids so I thought we'd save some... More

This place is nice. It would've been nice if housekeeping changed the sheets every other day instead of every four. This IS a beach town. Considering we spent little time inside, it was perfect for us. They were TRULY accommodating. Pet friendly.

We stayed here with our dogs on an spur of the moment mini-vacation. The room was clean and since there was no carpet it was great in case the dogs had an accident. We stayed 4 nights and never had any problems.

Once, I had a manager at a restaurant where I worked, who rigged the air conditioning to only work in his office. Now, it appears that I've found a motel that rigs the Wifi to only work well in THEIR office. Since their rates were more reasonable on the island during a summer week than many other places, we went... More

We have stayed at this establishment 3 times in the last year and our most recent stay will be our final visit. To start with,the entire room reeked of old urine and the people above us kept us up until 1 am and then woke us again at 4:30 am with their excessive noise (it sounded like they were moving...

this was our first stay at Alister Square Inn and we were not disappointed. We booked adjoining rooms because there were small children in our group and some of us need our beauty sleep.. Wink wink. You can tell the hotel has been updated and it was a very comfortable stay. In the heart of port Aransas so everything was... More

Stayed only one night, but it was a great value! the neighbors were very loud, but that isn't the fault of the hotel. My biggest issue was that they gave me the WiFi password... only to find that the signal strength was too weak to work in my room.

I just returned from a 3 night stay which coincided with Thanksgiving. Although they have recently had an upgrade and renovations made to this hotel, the bed was uncomfortable and the neighbors were loud on Friday and Saturday night. I have to admit, though, that the night manager did call them and ask for them to quiet down. Management was... More
