We had never made a trip to Port A before and were looking for a low cost place to stay with beach access. I knew this place was VERY casual and was a self service place to stay. I did not have any big expectations and I was satisfied with staying here. It does need a bit TLC, maybe newer... More

Smelly, musty, bug-ridden room. Hot tub was filthy. The best part were the hand-written threatening signs posted in the room warning about fines and charges for almost anything. Took pictures they were so amusing. One stay was all they'll get out of us.

Lightin bedroom did not work and fans were wobbly, furniture looked like it had been discarded and picked up for reuse, a mouse was scratching... More

We have been staying at the Beachcomber for years and while we miss the convenience of havin towels & toilet tissue replenished, (especially with a 17 year old granddaughter!) we'll keep keep staying there. It's close to everything of interest to us, clean, management is pleasant, it's quiet & relaxing - why wouldn't we? Gramma

We loved the lower rates, the kitchen, and the short walk to the beach. Port Aransas is a lovely town and we found fun things to do each day. The motel is very rustic and not for the overly picky but everything was clean and worked. The price made our trip possible and we were comfortable. Management was very upfront... More

We had a great time at the Beachcomber Rm 10 over the weekend. It was a great location & we made some great memories. The onsite manager was super nice & very outgoing. He had lots of goodies for the kiddos to borrow & we were even able to go crabbing using nets & gear he supplied for us. A... More

We stayed at the Sunrise Villa condos. I've been staying in Beachcomber properties for about 5 years now and this time I was disappointed in Melissa. When we checked into the condo it was old, but manageable. I've stayed in these units before and enjoyed it. When we woke up from our first night, we saw a small roach on... More
